A sexy, emotional New Adult romance about a bad boy on the edge and a good girl about to lose control...
A college baseball star isn't supposed to have skeletons in his closet. But Daniel Quinn is hiding a guilty past so dark he refuses to let anyone get close. Except there's something about gorgeous, studious Ella Abrams that goes beyond the electric attraction between them--something that makes him want to open up.
Ella has suffered enough heartache and guilt to fill one of her psychology textbooks, but she keeps that part of herself hidden behind a bubbly exterior. Until she receives an anonymous call while working a suicide helpline and the voice on the other end touches something inside of her that she can't ignore.
Soon Ella and Quinn's physical connection heats up, even as their deep and revealing hotline talks intensify. But by the time Ella realizes that her seductive jock and her sensitive caller are the same guy, it might be too late to save him--or to stop herself from falling too far...

Daniel Quinn feels responsible for something in his past and he's struggling to deal with it. He's close to doing something he can't come back from. But one phone call is all that it takes to change his life.
Ella Abrams wonders why she didn't see the signs when it came to her brother. She keeps everything inside and spends most of the book in an unhealthy relationship all the while trying to not feel attraction to Quinn. This made me want to shake her and ask 'why'. This part touched a nerve because back in high school, I had a friend who was in an unhealthy relationship and it almost broke her.
Before You Break isn't your typical read about a broken boy, a damaged girl, and two heartbreaking secrets that bring them together even though it was a bit predictable at times. It's a story that will break your heart, put it back together, and make you believe that even the most broken of souls can be healed by the power of love and forgiveness.
Kissing Ella was like coming home. There was no other way to describe it. It felt natural, thrilling, right. I just wasn't sure if I was right for her.
