Before the Storm Blog Stop

This is not a simple story of first loves, this is an emotional yet touching look at life and how the smallest decisions can shape futures.

What you think you know can change before your eyes. Fathers abuse, mothers deceive, best friends betray, sisters dismiss, love controls, and anger consumes.

After graduating from high school, Easton Grace knows exactly what he wants and how to get it. His goal for the summer includes two things: avoiding his father’s wrath and protecting his sister. His carefully laid plans are quickly changed when a girl comes to town causing him to lose his tight grasp of control on everything, including himself.

Following years of sorrow, Taylor Monaco returns to a town she never wanted to see again but will forever call home. Her life was eternally changed by the people in this town, especially one boy. Her heart desires someone she’s not sure her soul can handle.

Can Easton and Taylor find their path before it’s too late - before the storm?


This is definitely a series you don't want to miss!! If you loved Lily and Dean in Haven from the Storm as I did, then you will definitely want to read about Lily's brother, Easton.

This is Easton’s story and what leads up to the events in Haven from the Storm. This series had me in tears! The way Sarah uses detail in the story is just amazing! She really makes you feel like you are right there. You feel every emotion that the characters do. I absolutely loved it!

I read Haven from the Storm first, so I knew what was going to happen in the end. That did not stop my heart from aching and the tears to pour. Born and raised in Oklahoma, I definitely could relate to the emotions. I really enjoyed getting to read about Easton and getting his side of the story.

The book is written in multiple POVs. I have to say that the different POVs were one of my favorite things about the book. It really allows you to connect with the characters and feel the emotions that are packed in the story. That is not an easy task and I have found very few authors that can do such a good job at it! Way to go Sarah!

All around, this book, along with Haven, is amazing! I will forever be a fan and can’t wait to read more from Sarah. She has amazing talent!

I finally got away from my sister’s watchful eye. I didn’t have anywhere I needed to be today and even more importantly there wasn’t anywhere I wanted to be. I wanted a break, a timeout from life. Everything was spinning out of control because they were all losing their minds…or I was losing my mind, I wasn’t exactly sure.

I heard footsteps approaching in the dry sand of Sunflower beach.

“What in the hell are you doing here?” I yelled at Dean.

“Well I assume the same thing you’re doing here – trying to get away from you and everyone else.”

I didn’t respond I just glared at him.

“Lily’s upset.” He said like I didn’t know my own sister was unhappy and that we were the cause.

“I know! What did you say to her?” I demanded.

“I told her what you wanted me to, I told her we were done and we could never be.” He took a deep breath and closed his eyes. “Isn’t that what you wanted?”

“No, that’s not what I wanted. I wanted you to stay away from her in the first place. Stay away from her until you grow up enough to deserve her.” I stood from my place on the rock and moved toward him. “Why would you think you could be with Lily when you were just messing with that red head? Are you trying to hurt her?”

“I didn’t do anything with Mindi. Not that I expect you to believe me, but it’s the truth. You’re determined to turn me into the bad guy and I think you’re doing a good job at it.”

“What’s that supposed to mean?” I snapped.

“The harder you push the more you hurt her, not me.”
