Sunny Shelly’s Review: Before I Die, by Nikki Ash


Title: Before I Die
Author: Nikki Ash
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 9, 2020
Things I want to do before I die:
Go to a club
Get drunk
Kiss a stranger
Go on a mission trip
I’m drowning. Trapped beneath my mother’s expectations.
Suffocated by my religious upbringing.
My life has been full of well-crafted decisions—none of them
made by me.
On the outside I play by the rules, but on the inside… I
have dreams. A list. A tattered scrap of paper tucked away from the world, only
I know about.
Some items were easy to check off. Others, though, will
require me to take a huge leap out of my comfort zone.
One night changes everything. While at the club for my
birthday, so I could check off another item on my list, I did something I never
imagined I would have the guts to do: I got drunk and kissed a stranger.
What I wasn’t prepared for was how that one kiss would
change the course of my life, making me realize life is more than a list to be
checked off. It’s about living in the moment so you don’t miss the ones not on
the list—the ones you didn’t even know you wanted.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars

This cover is absolutely stunning in its simplicity. What I thought was going to be a lighthearted romance story ended up being a punch to the gut.

Nevaeh has led an incredibly sheltered life. Her mother is so strictly religious, and Navaeh is torn between wanting to be the good girl her mother expects her to be and wanting to find out who she is for herself. What does she like? What makes her tick? Enter Navaeh’s bucket wish list.

From the moment she meets club owner Ethan during a rare night out, sparks fly. When she spontaneously kisses him, it’s magic. There are so many obstacles for these two to overcome, and Nikki Ash does a great job of writing many twists and turns for them along the way.

Without giving anything away: This book was not what I expected.

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
