THE GIRL I WAS BEFORE by Ginger Scott is finally here! 

 NA Contemporary Romance
Scheduled to release: June 23, 2015

I’m the selfish one. I suppose that’s the nicest thing people say about me. I’ve heard the other things, too. “Paige Owens is a pretty girl with nothing else to offer. She’s just a good time at a party. She’s stupid, heartless, cold and useless. All she cares about is getting a guy to look at her. Why would anyone want to be her friend?”

Some of those things are true. Others were true. They’re all hurtful.

None of it matters.

I’m ready to make the hard choices. I’m ready to face the consequences. I’m ready to be the girl I was before, and I’m done being the one who lost her way.

I’m ready to become the girl Houston Orr sees when he looks at me.

Houston isn’t a star athlete. He doesn’t play in a band. He’s never going to be president, and his life is so far away from simple and easy it isn’t even funny. He wasn’t part of my plan. But I’m starting to think plans are overrated, and maybe our stories are what we make them. And mine depends entirely on me, and the choices I make…starting now.

Houston is my fairytale. He’s perfectly imperfect. He’s poetry and life. He’s truth and heartbreak, all rolled up in a tall body with dark hair, broad shoulders and green eyes that lull me into submission. He’s nothing I ever thought I wanted, but the very thing I need. He’s the only guy I’ve ever really loved, and he thinks I’m a princess. I fell into him, and now I’m holding on.

But sometimes life takes away our ability to choose. Sometimes…things aren’t in your control. Sometimes, it hurts to be selfless. My only hope is that when it comes time to choose, I get it right.

Welcome to my once upon a time and wish for happily ever after.


What a heartbreaking ride!!This is my first book of this series but I have read books from this author before and I love her writing so much!This book is full of emotions!I found myself feeling depressed and I wanted to cry in some parts. I was enthralled with the story and the characters, even thought I didn't like a lot Paige at the beginning.

Paige must take a decision..But it isn't easy..In a moment of her life which she feels unsure of what she must really do she will meet Huston.At the beginning Paige isn't very friendly with him.However Huston is drown to her ,even thought she doesn't say any interesting,he is here for her to help her.Soon they will develop a friendship which will become in something more...
Can these two be together? This is the story of these two so different characters, who managed to fit together..


I struggled a little with Paige's character and her boyfriend was such a bad choice,I can't understand why she was with him.On the other hand,I felt sorry for her because she wanted to feel loved.So at the beginning I didn't like her a lot and while I was reading the book I found myself liking her in the end.This is a reason why I loved Ginger Scott because she managed to make me like a character that I didn't like in the beginning!Then, Paige meets Huston and things changed!He is the one who told her "You can do better than this" and he was true!I loved Huston,he is funny,protective and so sweet!He is exactly what Paige needs!He is such a lovable character from the beginning of this story!


I would definitely recommend this book and I'm planning to read the others from this series!!So give it a try and read them from the beginning!!
