Overview

Action movie star Cade Wallace knows better than anyone that being a public figure means that all eyes are on you, magnifying every success--and every failure.
After a string of box office duds, he signs on as a client to Whitmore and Creighton, a PR firm, determined to make a comeback. He can't get the feisty redhead that he met at a premiere out of his head. Their chemistry is electric, but it will take more than money and fame to win her heart. He'll have to face his demons, and a past he's trying hard to forget...

Megan Scott can't seem to avoid douchebags. As a teacher in an underfunded inner city school, she deals with coworkers that make no secret of the fact they're only there for a paycheck. In her love life, she keeps picking men intent on finding new ways to break her heart.
When she meets Cade Wallace, she knows he'd be more of the same. Devastatingly handsome? Check. An inflated ego? Double check. But their attraction is undeniable. Can she trust him with her heart, or will he be another mistake?

    Awesome

    ***** This is an ARC Review****

    I received this copy of Before You Go for my honest review..

    This is the journey of Megan and Cade and what a journey it was for both of them.

    Megan the bouncy school teacher that has had a hard life with love in the past. With an ex-boyfriend (Mark) that she walked away from when she found him going down on her TA on her desk at school. But, Mark could not seem to get the clue when Megan said leave me a lone it didn't seem to phase Mark. He just kept coming back for more. I was so over Mark after I read the words "cheat"

    Cade the actor that thought he was "gods gift to woman" till he saw Megan. Cade fell hard for Megan even before he knew whom she really was. He had his PA Lisa find out all about Megan. But, Cade had demons from his own past. Former Military man that was married and thought it was ok to cheat on his wife that was waiting for him to return home. When he returned home to his awaiting wife she had already knew that Cade was cheating. Instead of confronting Cade and telling him how she felt she just couldn't take it anymore and took her own life.(sad I know)

    Lets fast forward to why you should pick up Before You Go..
    Cade and Megans first kiss was electrifying the kiss that dreams are made of. Lets throw in some reality and you have a modifying hot book. I kind of hoped that the love scenes would have been a little more in depth than they were but the story behind the bedroom made this book Awesome in this readers opinion. You get to read what Megan and Cade each felt and why.

    Cade was the definite ALPHA male for sure. Take HOT and Hotter in the mix and you got one steamy romance with a background to boot..

    Megan and Cade both made an appearance in Ava's "His Submissive Series". I am so glad that I got to read more about these two characters. I was so sad at the end of the book but in order to know why your gonna have to pick up this book. I am not gonna let you know if there is a happy ending or not cause that is not the way I write my review's but I will say that the ending is some what not expected but it definitely touches the heart strings in this readers opinion.

    This author is AWESOME. She writes with heart and when she writes she just doesn't tell you a story she tells you about the characters and what they are thinking and feeling. Thats one of the most rarest of them all. Thanks Ava for writing a fantastic read and story. I hope to hear more of Cade and Megan in the future (maybe) lol

    Now go and pick up this book cause it is an Awesome Read

    I liked this book but I did not love it, the start of the book was strange, I didnt know what I was reading, was it Cade's real life or was it
    a part of his new movie Soldier's Creed? Then reading about him wanting Leila Montgomery so badly "Something that drew me to her
     like a moth to a flame" and in the next breath he is madly in love with her best friend Megan. Then later when he meets his new
    publicist Missy and right away he is flirting with her, thinking about taking her to bed, this right after he wants his assistant to find out
    everything about Megan so he can go after her. It felt like the author could not decide if she wanted Cade to be a good guy or a bad guy,
     it was strange. I did like the back and forth chapters of Cade and Megan's POV. Then we read again about another scene a soldier is
    in and once again I thought it was the movie then finally it was made clear that this was Cade's life years ago, this should have been
    made clear right from the start. Then Cade and Megan are together, once again I felt they fell in love way to quick, I don't even feel like
    I know anything about either of them really. Of course there has to be some trouble in there to try and break them up,
    misunderstandings occur, then a romantic gesture to ask for forgiveness and they are happy as can be.

    I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review!
    For me this was a solid 4.5 stars

    Okay so I was about a page or two into this book before I realized that this was Cade and Megan’s book from the His Submissive series. I am not only surprised but I was hoping they would get one.
    We get to see a little of how Cade’s stint with the Army went, as well as how Megan’s relationship went with Mark and just why they broke up. You really start to see a different side of Cade then what we saw of him in His Submissive…which I’m thinking Megan is what brings out this other side we didn’t quite get to see before.
    Oh Megan…she has been so badly burned that she shuts anything good out, and Cade has hurt someone so bad he thinks he doesn’t deserve happiness. How long until these two realize they are pretty perfect for one another?
    Missy Diaz…I didn’t like her in Jacob and Lelia’s story and I hate her in this one as well…she is shady to me, and then she shows her true colors.

    I legit had this book read in less than a day…I couldn’t put it down for long. 
    This was a pretty great HEA for Cade and Megan…as much as I wanted Cade to leave Lelia alone in the His Submissive series I still liked him in the end and saw even in the other series that Cade and Megan had amazing chemistry. It did at times feel like it was a rather quick relationship…they got to the “I love you’s” really fast but that didn’t detract from the story it was just something that I noticed while reading.
    If you were a fan of Jacob and Lelia’s story and you like either Cade or Megan from that series then you should definitely read this story. If you haven’t read the His Submissive series then I personally recommend you read it before reading this novel…you don’t HAVE too but you won’t get the whole story behind Cade as well as Megan and Mark’s relationship if you don’t.

    disappointment

    I had hoped that this story would be better and have some depth to it, but it didnt. It felt rushed and spotty, like it was just thrown together without thought. I think it could have been a good story but it was a huge let down and i would not recommend.

    I was fortunate enough to receive an advanced readers copy by the author for an honest review. Granted by the time I read it the book had just come out so I wasn't really ahead of the game but that was my doing. I didn't know what to expect out of this book with being introduced with new main characters. It took me a few chapters but then I couldn't help but feel for Cade and his way of thinking. His journey to pursue Megan at all cost but having a hard time shaking off his bad boy image everyone still see's him as. Ava Claire did a great job in bringing them together but pulling me in along the way and wanting things to work out. Of course no book would be complete without a villain and what a piece of work she is. I just wanted to strangle her and was silently cursing her through my kindle. I look forward to what Ava comes up with next.

    I'm a fan of Ava Claire's His Submissive Series and I really liked Cade and Megan so, I was excited to dive into this spin off. All together, this was a fast and easy read. I enjoyed it but, the second half felt rushed. I wished that their relationship would've had more build up before the I love yous happened. Usually, I can't wait for the declaration of love but, this time around, it just didn't work for me. This started off 4 stars but, ends with a solid 3. 

    I really like Ava Claire's writing and will definitely pick up more of her work. Anyone interested in this should pick up her His Submissive Series.

    I received this ARC from the aurthor for an honest review. 
    Cade is an Actor who believes he doesn't deserve love, so he sleeps around alot. Megan is a teacher that believes she sets herself up for failure so she winds up with losers that constantly cheat on her and break her heart. So its plenty of drama watching these two get it together. 
    He's attracted to her but wants more, he doesn't want to be that cheating guy anymore. She doesn't trust expecially not Cade who, in the previous series His Submissive, lusted for her bestfriend Leila. 
    So how can she think to trust him with her heart. So the whole plot is about getting these two together. Loved the story line, They fell in love really fast tho but other than that, it's a great read

    I received this ARC from the author for a honest review. I've tried to sum up the story without giving spoilers.

    We meet up with Cade, who if you read the His Submissive series, stormed into Leila's life and tried to break up her relationship. 

    Now that Cade is upset about Leila's refusal to deal with him as his publicist, he decides to pursue her best friend Megan. 

    Megan is a upbeat school teacher who teaches at a school for underprivileged students. She loves what she does, just doesn't love a certain co-worker.

    Cade storms into her life via text message, then showing up in her classroom. The conversation is great between the two and they have such tension between the two of them.

    Slowly Megan opens up and finally Cade opens up as well. Then...well life happens and someone tries to spilt the two apart. But, when love is real and strong, nothing can undo what is put together.

    I love Cade and Megan and want to see more of them and more of Leila and Jacob too. The ending leaves you in a good place but leaves you wanting more as well.

    If you have read The Submissive, then you will already have met Cade and Megan. Before You Go will still make perfect sense even if you haven't read the Submissive!!
    Cade is a huge movie star with a huge ego and, apparently, a huge....well you get my drift ;-)
    Megan is a teacher with a string of failed romances under her belt.
    This is the story of how Cade sets out to woo Megan.
    As expected from this author, this book is extremely well written, the vocabulary was pitched just right without being over flowery. The characters have grown since The Submissive, things that were touched upon in that book are written about in more detail in this book. Megan and Cade's vulnerable side comes out and this actually makes Cade, in particular, a much more likeable bloke.
    I loved this book. I like it when an author writes such strong secondary characters that they are worthy of their own book.

    Congratulations on a great book Ms Claire.

    Cade is this larger than life movie star that doesn't believe he deserves love. Megan is a school teacher that seems to always pick the wrong guy … the one that always cheats and breaks her heart. When Cade meets Megan he sees something that he never thought he would find but especially feel again. There is a lot of great back and forth between Cade and Megan. I love that Megan is finally standing up for what she deserves which forces Cade to made some changes in his own life. I did feel like they both jumped into the love zone rather quickly but at the same time there was a connection that seemed genuine … it was like they needed each other to heal past hurts and move forward. Loved the interactions that happened at Megan's school. Really enjoyed their romance!

    I was lucky enough to receive an eARC of Before You Go. After reading Ava's His Submissive Series, I was anxiously looking forward to 
    reading Meg and Cade's story. Although their story was not as steamy as Leila and Jacob's it was just as great. There was actually a
    section in the story from Meg's point of view that gave me a better look at myself. In the His Submissive Series, I hated Missy. In Before
    You Go, a part of me felt sorry for Missy (but I may still hate her a little bit). I enjoyed Meg and Cade's journey. I'm looking forward to Mia's
    story (I hope one is still coming), I would absolutely love to see more of Jacob and Leila as well. I think it would be great to see how their
    lives progress with time (Jacob & Leila, Cade & Meg). Way to go Ava!!
