Review: You Before Anyone Else

You Before Anyone ElseTitle: You Before Anyone Else
Author: Julie Cross & Mark Perini
Publisher: Sourcebooks Fire
Release Date: August 2, 2016

Model Finley needs someone to help her shed her "good girl" persona, so she'll try Eddie on for size.

New York City model Finley is fed up with hearing the same feedback at castings: she needs to take some serious action to wipe the "good girl" stamp from her resume if she wants to launch to stardom.

Enter Eddie Wells. He's shallow, predictable…and just as lost as Finley feels. Deep down, Finley is drawn to Eddie's bravado, his intensity. Except Eddie is hiding something. A big something. And when it surfaces, both loving and leaving Finley will become so much harder.

I'm not totally sure what to say about this one.  I've been going back and forth trying to figure out how to review this, and I'm honestly not sure what to say.

How realistic is this book?  Probably not particularly.  I don't see really anyone walking along the street and then modeling for really huge names the next day.  But I still enjoyed the story.  There are things that happen that would cause some people I know to put it down and never pick it up again.  But I think most people would be okay with it.

As I said, I enjoyed the story and trying to figure out the different aspects of Eddie's secret.  I'm not completely sure why, but I didn't see Eddie's and Finley's relationship developing perfectly.  Maybe it was because the two perspectives were shared by two authors, but things just weren't quite right.  

Still, the story was cute and sweet.

If you're looking for a quick read with a cute romance and a happy ending, give it a shot.

Note: I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
