Before I Fall by Jessica Scott

by Jessica Scott
Book One of the
Falling Series

This is the beginning of a new series for Jessica Scott.
It was yet another captivating story from her.
Her writing always keeps me interested.
The characters are so real.

Noah has come home to stay. He has done his duty in the
military. And he has the scars to prove it. The scars that
cover his body. The scars that distort his thoughts. He has
fallen onto the same path many do. Pain relief in a bottle.
Beth has been taking care of her father since she was a
teenager. Her mother could not handle it. She left. Somehow,
Beth has managed all these years. Her father served in the
military. Now, he struggles with physical and emotional pain.
He has been medicating himself any way he can all this time.
Alcohol and drugs. Just trying to make it from day to day.
He has been so thankful for his hard working, brave daughter.

If there is one thing Beth knows, she hates the military. They have
not taken care of her father as they should. Now, he is addicted to
the pain meds. Beth will never be with someone from the military.

Noah is trying to get through college. Get his degree. While most
classes are hard, one of them is impossible. Stats. But with the
help of a tutor, he stands a chance.
Beth is trying for her degree as well. Working. Taking care of her
father. Stretching every dollar til it squeaks. She needs the money
from tutoring. And Noah needs a tutor.
But Noah is a military man. And that is something
she cannot tolerate.
And that's where the story really begins.

Jessica's writing is sincere and true. You can feel the emotions
from the words. The characters are alive and real. I am always
impressed with her works.
Be prepared for drama. I felt angry at the truths in the story.
But they are truths from real life for many people today.
Beth and Noah have learned to be hard. To protect and cover
their hearts. They know how to fight for what they need. 
The biggest struggle may be to learn trust. 
I look forward to the rest of the series.
