I borrowed this book from Kindle Unlimited.
Zara was groomed her entire life to be a submissive. Her life was never really her own and her future had already been decided. Zara has a mind of her own, Hope’s and dreams. She has resigned to know none of these things will ever be a possibility for her. Her life and future have already been decided for her by her father and the other members of The Kings Council.
Ceremony day has arrived and Zara reluctantly gets ready- she has been dreading this day. Then at the last moment, Zara is offered a choice- continue on with a life that has been decided for her or follow her own path. What will Zara choose?
The plotline for Before Him Comes Me was very original. I can’t say I have ever come across a BDSM themed book or any book for that matter that has been quite like it.
I really felt for Zara, she was never allowed to think for herself. To be herself. It was interesting to follow her on her journey, to see if she thought the decision she made was the right one. Because, no matter what path she chose, she would have to live with that choice for the rest of her life. (less)
Alexandria Sure is from Michigan and adores her supportive family, her two rescue pups, and her mighty Spartans. Her coffee obsession leads her to writing in local coffee shops where characters come alive between salted caramel lattes and large cups of “cold brew extra cream two Splenda,” which are usually on the counter when she walks in because the baristas know her car. (Thanks, Biggby!)
When she is not writing, she spends a great deal of her time perfecting her craft. She is an active member of Capital City Writers Association and attends several writing conferences each year.
Sure’s first novel, Before Him Comes Me, is an unconventional romance of self-discovery, described by readers as “the first BDSM book with no sex.”
