I never saw him coming.

I didn't know what would happen after my client found me sleeping in my car.

I'd been cleaning his house as his wife was dying.

I didn't expect them to invite me to live with them.

I didn't expect Suzie to become my lifeline—until she was gone.

I didn't expect him to ask me to marry him when he found out I needed medical insurance.

I didn't expect to fall in love with a grieving man.

There are so many reasons to keep my distance from Zach. Every tender moment secreted away.

When we're not together, I miss the man I call husband.

Does he miss his wife? If so, which one?

Liz's Review

I have no words to describe how I felt reading Before Us by Jewel E. Ann. I feel that no matter what I say, it will not be enough to express how much I loved this book. The minute I read the blurb I knew this would be a must-read for me. The first 20% of this book wrecked me. The last 25% devastated me. The entire book had me in a chokehold. My feelings had feelings. I was so invested in the characters and their journey. My heart broke. I was not sure if I would get the ending I needed. I cursed the author even as I continued to devour this book. This is a new top favorite read. Hands down.

I do not even know where to start. I loved Suzie. I loved Emerson. I loved Zach. I want to say something about Suzanne. She was amazing. Emerson broke my heart. She was caring, fragile, determined, stubborn and fierce. Zach. I have no words for him. He was perfection as a book boyfriend. He was broken, lost, grieving and yet, he was caring, protective, kind, and generous. I want to share so much, but this is truly a story that must be experienced. We know there is a couple in need of something and Emerson ends up being so much more than they expected. The friendship developed during this time was heartwarming, but we knew what was coming.

When we see what we knew was coming happen, it was like waiting to watch a train wreck occur. I loved seeing Emerson and Zach’s interactions and support for each other. Then the lines started to blur. But what did it mean? Could Zach learn to love again or was it too late for him? All Emerson wanted was to be love and be loved. But at what cost? She matters and deserves so much. All I can say is this is a new top favorite and will probably be one of my top favorites of the year. It was beautiful, heartbreaking, beautiful and captivating. Absolutely amazing.
