Five Star Review: Before Him Comes Me by Alexandria Sure


Title: Before Him Comes Me
Author: Alexandria Sure
Genre: NA Contemporary Romance
Hosted by: Lady Amber's Tours


Blurb:
Faced with an unexpected choice, a simple nod is all it will take to change the course of Zara's life.

Bound to a life predetermined by the restrictive traditions of her community, Zara is offered a glimmer of hope by a complete stranger, a man selected for her. She can choose to walk away from the life she has been trained for.

Make new friends and lose her best friend.
Explore new places and lose her home.
Find herself and lose herself.

Will Zara nod and risk everything she knows to discover who she is meant to be?




WOW!! Definitely not what I expected from a new author. Alexandria Sure freakin blew me away. I completely fell for the characters and and her book!! Def a new fave author for me. Before Him Comes Me was well written, well developed and you can tell the author did her research. This is one book you do not want to miss and let me just warn you now, once you start you wont be able to stop because it is that phenomenal.

I really loved Garrett's character as well as Zara's, but Garrett more so, I think I found a new book boyfriend in him. My heart really went out to Zara and the things she had experienced and the way life was handed to her, however Garrett made up for all that in more and made sure she got to experience what life was truly about. This is def a must read and highly recommended book. Alexandria def knows what she's doing and I cant wait to see what she wows us with next. Hopefully it's a sequel with Fredrick...hint, hint.




  


Alexandria Sure is an avid reader and has written her first novel as homage to fans of the genre she loves. She hopes others will appreciate her novel as much as she enjoyed writing it.
Sure follows the work of several authors and feels she has benefited from reading and commenting on their author pages on Facebook. This has given her the opportunity to get to know the people behind the characters she has grown to love. She hopes her readers will check out her Facebook page so she can get to know them and pay it forward.

Sure is from Michigan and adores her supportive family, her deaf rescue pup and her mighty Spartans. Her experiences in writing her first novel have revealed the true meaning in Jack Canfield's quote, "Everything you want is on the other side of fear."

Straightening to his full height, he extends his large hand and helps her to her feet. Zara is shaky and realizes again, she does not know what to expect. She finds her mother’s eyes and stares into them attempting to convey love and her need to take this unexpected opportunity.

“Aubrey.”

Zara’s father ends the silent communication between them, the tone making it clear what is expected of her. Zara’s mother’s eyes drop to the ground directly in front of her and she slowly lowers herself into the kneeling position that her father’s tone demands. There would be no point in hoping for more eye contact with her mother. She is no longer Zara’s mother. She is now her father’s slave.

Addressing Zara’s father, the man at Zara’s side says, “I would like for my mother to have five minutes with this submissive before we make this official. Protocols are important where I come from. I am sure you understand.”
“Of course,” her father replies. “I am confident that you will find Zara Faith’s training satisfactory. We would be happy to give you five minutes to ensure you are getting the best possible submissive.”

Thankful she had followed her instinct on not eating earlier, Zara swallows hard at being addressed as if she is livestock to be traded at auction. With his hand still clasping hers, he leads Zara out of the Circle, passing the collar that Zara had been prepared her entire life to wear. With her eyes still cast down, Zara passes her mother in her kneeling position with her arms crossed behind her back, her eyes affixed to the floor in front of her.

They quickly walk past everyone: the King Council members, Doms with their subs, Masters with their slaves and the section of unattached males and females that are whispering fiercely as they pass. Together, they are walking away from everyone and everything that Zara knows.

Blurb:

I survived my senior year of high school despite being turned into a vampire. Summer break should be a snap. No getting up early or making excuses why I can't make it to class or hang out with my friends.

I had hoped to put the events of last year behind me. Unfortunately, the Sidhe won't let me. Nobody holds a grudge like they do, especially when you kill one of their own. They're intent on making my life miserable and considerably shorter. When Ann's parents vanish while vacationing in Maine, we head out to find them. Of course, the Sidhe follow and I manage to capture the interest of another vampire. One who wants answers as to what makes me different. Answers I don't have and that might just get me killed for good this time.

Dealing with supernatural attacks while trying to find Ann's parents keeps us on our toes but as long we’re together, we can handle anything. At least until things really start to fall apart.

"Casey Tam," Principal Reed said into the microphone.

The girl next to me scooted out of the rows of seats and hurried up to the stage. She wore a huge smile as she turned to wave after he handed her the diploma.

"Megan Taylor."

I can do this. I took a deep breath, trying to steady my nerves. Walking out in front of everyone was tough, knowing most of them actually watched me. It was harder ignoring the panic surging through me and demanding I hide, but I managed to smile and wave at my mom while I accepted my diploma. I didn't run as I left the stage, though I wanted to. Relief washed through me once I stood with my friends, Steph and Ann. The relative anonymity of the crowd helped. I don't sweat, but I wiped my hands on my gown anyway.

Steph gave me a worried look. "You doing okay?"

I laughed quietly. "Is it obvious?"

Ann grinned. "Yes."

I rolled my eyes. A last minute rainstorm had allowed me to attend my high school graduation, but rays of sun peeked through the clouds and made me even more uncomfortable than the crowd did.

Finally, it was over, and we were able to leave the auditorium. Steph, Ann, and I stayed together and waited in the hallway for our parents to catch up. I tried to ignore the flowing crowd of people I'd known for years, focusing my gaze on the floor and hoping no one would try to talk to me. Unfortunately, even after several months of being a Vampire, I wasn't comfortable around them. I still felt like they knew something was wrong with me.

It was irrational–if most of the people in my class even bothered to give me a second glance, they wouldn't be able to tell the difference. I'd mostly kept to myself before becoming a Vampire, and now I only hung out with Ann, Steph, and the guys–who we were supposed to be meeting at the Steak 'n Shake later.

Our parents pushed through the crowd and joined us in our corner with big smiles plastered on their faces. Though we'd already endured countless pictures, Mom took several more.

"We're so proud of you three," she said, apparently sensing my annoyance.

"I know. Sorry." I can do this, I repeated to myself. I can get through the attention.

She gave me a hug.

"Okay, we'll let you go, then. I know you have plans, but don't stay out too late," Steph's mom said.

"Yes, Mom."

They congratulated us one more time before filing out with the stragglers. We waited, not ready to brave the parking lot yet.

"So, it's summer," I said after a minute of silence.

Steph laughed. "Master of the obvious there, Meg. What's up?"

I scuffed my feet, staring down at my black robe. "I don't know, well…it's over. High school. Now we have to go to college. And well… I still don't know what I'm going to do with myself."

"You are going to the college here with me and Steph, and it will be like high school, only with less parental supervision."

"Ugh." I hoped it wouldn't be just like high school.

Ann giggled. "Well, hopefully we can avoid some of the events of high school."

"Yes, please."

"I agree, but really, Meg, I think you're worrying too much. College isn't easier than high school, but I think the living arrangements will be. We're in the same dorm. We might even be roommates."

I groaned. We wouldn't learn the living assignments until right before we moved in. I prayed whoever was in charge took note of our requests.

"Don't worry about it now, Meg. It'll work out. Besides, we have two and a half months of freedom to enjoy."

"Yeah. Sunny freedom." I glanced at the slowly brightening sky for emphasis.

"So we'll have a lot of sleepovers. Ann is staying with you for a couple of weeks. I'll stay, too, or we can go to my house. Ann's parents even said we could stay at their place, as long as we didn't have any wild parties." Steph grinned.

I couldn't help smiling. "Yeah, us and our wild habits."

"Exactly," Steph said.

"All right. I'll stop worrying about it." I'll try, anyway.

"Good. Now, let's go." She pulled a mirror out of her purse and checked her hair and makeup. Steph didn't need makeup to look beautiful. She was tall, athletic, and had great strawberry-blonde hair hanging just past her shoulders, pale creamy skin, and cute freckles across her nose.

"Anxious to see Gary?" Ann tilted her head. She was shorter than me and Steph, slightly plump, with mousy brown hair. Her eyes were a lovely hazel, and the eye shadow she wore today made them look green.

Steph blushed, shoved her mirror back into her purse, and hurried out the door.

Ann and I traded an amused look before following her to my Jeep. "How's Alexander?" I lowered my voice, as we walked.

Ann sighed. "He is fine and trying to return, but his family and the rest of the Seelie are not very happy with him right now. He said not to worry."

My gut clenched. Not happy with him probably meant not happy with me, too. I was more than partially responsible for the events upsetting them.

"It will be okay, Meg. It really will."

I let her squeeze my hand and tried to believe her. In a way, it was okay. Ann was alive, and to save her life I would do it all over again, even the becoming a Vampire part. It didn't stop me from worrying though.

After the trauma from their final battle with Exemplar, Tarek is certain Lena is better off without him. She deserves a life without the baggage he carries. She deserves someone…real. But he refuses to live as a useless shell. He fights alongside Oren as they protect Exemplian citizens from what is left of Exemplar’s government. As he fights, one thought keeps him sane:

Tarek didn’t let Lena go. He gave her an out.

Lena has spent the last eight months trying to move forward. She has hope Tarek will heal, but she can’t wallow; she has to raise fifteen-year-old Peter, who suffers from the same ghosts as her soul mate. Her goal is simple: make Peter happy. Make him so damn happy that he drowns in it—while in secret, she yearns for the other half of her heart. But then Peter runs away, back to Exemplar—again.

This time is different.

This time, Peter doesn’t come back.

Lena soon grows desperate and reaches out to the one person able to help her—the one person who has sworn to leave her alone forever. Tarek.

Together again, Lena and Tarek find there is more than the problem of Peter to solve. Exemplian citizens are suffering under the repercussions of Lena and her army’s actions. They blew up the important buildings last year, but they didn’t kill every one intent on Exemplar remaining the superior world.
For Lena, the only answer is to finish what they started, but she won’t stop there. Exemplar’s vulnerable citizens and Peter are not the only people who need saved.

She’ll heal Tarek, too—whether he wants her to or not.
