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 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 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 each moment like it’s his last. -Goodreads
The Day Before is the second book I’ve read and enjoyed by Lisa Schroeder. The first book was I Heart You, You Haunt Me, which I really liked. The Day Before is a touching, lyrical read that kept me guessing until the end.
There aren’t too many characters to follow in the book. I found the two main characters, Amber and Cade, to be very likeable. I enjoyed their relationship together, how they were there for each other, even though they had only known each other a short while. Both had a major issue going on in their life, which ends up bonding them together. I connected more with Amber than I did with Cade, but I’m assuming that is because it’s her story, and we don’t know as much about Cade as we do Amber.
The book is written in verse, and changes times from present to past. I didn’t have a hard time with it at all. The story was beautifully written, and easy to follow. The book was also a really quick read. I had it finished in about 2 hour’s time. I really like the cover for the book as well, it’s gorgeous.
Overall, I really, really enjoyed this book. It will definitely be a welcome addition to my collection.
