The Day Before by Lisa Schroeder

Here’s a little bit about it from Ms. Schroeder’s website:
Sometimes there's no turning back.

Amber's life is spinning out of control. All she wants is to turn up the volume on her iPod until all of the demands of her family and friends fade away. So she sneaks off to the beach to spend a day by herself.

Then Amber meets Cade. Their attraction is instant, and Amber can tell that he's also looking for an escape. Together they decide to share a perfect day: no pasts, no fears, no regrets.

The more time that Amber spends with Cade, the more she's drawn to him. And the more she's troubled by his darkness. Because Cade's not just living in the now--he's living like each moment is his last.

My Take
This book is written in verse and I loved it.  Lisa Schroeder is the expert at writing in verse.  Her books never fail to pluck at my heart strings and fall in love with her characters.  Amber is off for her day to herself when she meets Cade who’s like a gust of wind in her life.  It’s funny how sometimes the few hours you spend getting to know someone, can forever change your life.  The only little nit-picky thing I have to say is that I thought the girl on the cover was dead.  Sorry but it kinda' looks that way.  Just my opinion though, to be sure.  It's a lovely cover despite that.  This is another of the books on the Contemps Challenge.  The ending has a surprise.  I loved this book.  It was a sweet story about treasuring the here and now.  I’m giving it 5 lasting kisses!!

  1. Aaah, I totally agree. When I first saw the cover, it looked like a tragic contemporary novel with a very dead young lady in the leading role.

    Thanks again for another awesome review.



I'd love to hear what your thoughts are regarding my posts! ~Thanks
