From USA Today bestselling author Marni Mann comes Before You, a new contemporary romance and a devastating examination of the things we find, the things we make, and the things we lose.
It was supposed to be a typical work trip. New York to San Francisco, window seat, exit row. Maybe a mimosa.
Then, seat 14B sat down. When our eyes met, the flight became anything but routine.
I could pinpoint the moments in my life where everything changed forever.
Meeting Jared on that flight was first.
Falling in love with him was second.
Discovering the secrets he kept was third.
Putting my broken self back together and forgetting what I learned would be difficult. Forgiving Jared would be impossible.
He said, before me, nothing mattered. But after him, nothing would ever be the same.

Review: Before You
Before You by Marni Mann is a contemporary romance standalone novel ripe with twists and turns that keep you on tenterhooks the ENTIRE book. The main focus of the story is on Billie Paige, a renowned food vlogger and her trip to San Francisco where she meets Jared Morgan, her seat neighbor on the plane. But we also get two other storylines that take place woven throughout Billie and Jared's story. The melding of these threads as they come together towards the epic conclusion to this story is heartbreaking but also heart-mending. There is a happily ever after but good god does the author make you work for it! If you want an emotional story that may make you cry a little and feel sad a lot but also is spicy and steamy then I highly recommend this. Enjoy!
This book was mind blowing! The first few chapters I was thinking “what the heck is going on here?” So, of course, I had to keep reading to figure it out. I was so entranced in the book that I couldn’t put it down. Marni Mann wrote a captivating, unique story that kept me on the edge of my seat. I’m pretty good at figuring out stories with suspense in them, but this one left me dumbfounded. I loved all of the characters, I loved the love story aspect, and I loved the mystery of trying to figure it all out. One of the best books I have read this year. I will be recommending Before You to all of my reading buddies.
Best book of the year so far!
This book was everything. I’m just at a loss at how to put it into words to review it. This is my second Marni Mann book and I’m so glad I discovered her. She’s an amazing author who pulls you in immediately. This book was simply amazing. Two stories become one...and you’ll never see the tie in till it happens. You’ll fall in love with Billie and Jared. There’s no way you can’t. Their story is beautifully written and fate driven. This is an emotional read with lots of feels. To be honest, I just need more stars. I think that would be the clearest way to rate this book.
