Before That Night & Every Night Without You - Violet Duke - Release Blitz


The duet is complete! Don't miss out on this amazing series by New York Times Bestselling Author, Violet Duke!

- A USA TODAY Bestseller! --
Before that night, Addison Milan had been just a college dropout secretly raising her two young siblings in a beat-up minivan she'd bought with her first semester's tuition refund--the only money her addict mother hadn't taken off with when she'd abandoned them nearly two years ago.
Before that night, Caine Spencer had been just a rough, gruff cop sent to check out the phoned-in claims of suspected child neglect involving the same woman he'd met just months prior when she'd first served him the city's worst diner coffee...which he'd been drinking daily ever since.

Before that night, Addison would never have thought the man she'd been fighting hard not to fall for--her only friend in her new shadow of a life--would be in a position to rip her family apart.

Before that night, Caine would never have believed any woman could make him fall head over heels, let alone make him feel so damn compelled to look the other way when it came to his job.

Then that one perfect night changed everything.

BEFORE THAT NIGHT (Bk 1 of 2) chronicles the events that take place seven years prior to EVERY NIGHT WITHOUT YOU (Bk 2 of 2), Caine & Addison's story of love, sacrifice, and the lengths one will run--and chase--when their past threatens their future.

Seven years.
Seven damn years of wondering whether the woman was still alive...whether she'd spent the last two thousand five hundred fifty-five days wondering if he was still alive.

Wondering whether that night was as burned into her memory as it was his.

Seven years having his heart tethered to Addison―and now she's back. With even more reasons to run than she'd had then.

Only this time, Caine isn't letting the gorgeous little flight risk out of his sight.

Regardless of how noble her reasons may be.

EVERY NIGHT WITHOUT YOU (Bk 2 of 2) takes place seven years after BEFORE THAT NIGHT (Bk 1 of 2), and is the conclusion of Caine & Addison's story of love, sacrifice, and the lengths one will run―and chase―when their past threatens their future.


3.5 Stars

I've got to say I was drawn to Before That Night, because I absolutely adored the cover. Caine and Addisons's story is a quick and enjoyable read. As much as I enjoyed the characters, I found the ending frustrating and not just that it was a cliffhanger. The lead up to the ending felt a tad rushed to me.

Addison is a young, but strong heroine, due to the circumstances of her childhood in some ways she appears much older than her years but in other ways I still found her to be quite naive and immature.

Caine is sweet and caring, and has demons he needs to confront. I really liked his character and the points in the book where it was told from his point of view, and I actually would have liked more chapters dedicated to his view point.

Before That Night, is a fast paced read at times, I kind of found it too fast as times and the lapses over the time period the book represents were quite large and left the story being a bit unrealistic for me.

I have thoroughly enjoyed Ms Duke's work in the past and still look forward to reading more of her work in the future.

4 Stars 

Every Night Without You fast forwards seven years after the conclusion of Before That Night. 

With a little bit of help from fate, Caine and Addison are reunited and their chemistry and love is just as strong as ever. The path to finding their happy ever after is not an easy one, and is full of suspense! Many questions that were left unresolved are answered and surprising plot twists are revealed that keep you thoroughly enthralled with this story. 

Every Night Without You, is a fast paced, enjoyable and entertaining read that I devoured in one sitting. I must say that i really preferred this title to the previous title of Before That Night, but you really need to read both parts of the duet, to fully comprehend the plot line. 

I look forward to reading more of Ms Duke's work in the future.
