It will haunt me. It will claim me. It will shatter me. And I don't care.

Faith Watters has a picture-perfect life. She's captain of the dance team, popular, happy. She even spent her junior year traveling the world before returning to Oviedo High School for senior year. But she's living a lie.

Diego Alvarez hates his new life in the States, but staying in Cuba is not an option. Covered in tattoos and scars, Diego doesn't stand a chance of fitting in, and doesn't want to. His only concern is his secret past--a past, which if it were to surface, would cost him his life.

Everyone knows that Faith and Diego don't belong together. But fate has its own plan. All they want is to be free. What they get is something different entirely.

Love--it will ruin you. . .and save you.

Faith and Diego’s story was interesting, with their different lifestyles suddenly colliding it made me very interested to see how they would come together. When Diego and Faith did meet there was major sparks and clashing going on. With Faith being the pastor’s daughter, trying to be the perfect gory and Diego being this hard bad boy from the mean streets of Cuba I loved how from the meant they met they challenged each other with I really enjoyed. Faith was ok, I liked how she wasn’t afraid of Diego’s bad boy persona though I wasn’t feeling her strong need to fit in, letting others dictate her life instead of being her real self. There was a lot of moments were her actions frustrated me, though in the end she got it together, letting her true self out for all to see with the help of her awesome tell it like it is best friend Melissa and the daring Diego.

Now I was really feeling Diego and his tough, bold, bad boy personality. He brought the drama and challenge and wasn’t afraid to put himself out there and go for what he wanted. I loved how he pushed Faith to open up and was willing to open up and acknowledge the developing feelings he had for Faith. Their romance was super spicy, sexy and even though they lead different lives they had this strong chemistry and I really enjoyed when they put everything aside and opened up to each other and helping each other deal with the hard issues of their lives. With the strong chemistry, hot opposite attract romance with the high drama, edge and danger woven into this intense story I found Before You by Amber Hart to be a Yummy read.
