Blog Tour ~ Before the Storm ~ Sarah Dosher


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?

Chapter 3 Easton

—George Bernard Shaw


I moved as fast as I could down the narrow aisle. Everything was a blur. I pushed people in my rush, but didn’t care about who it was or what damage I might have caused. I only had one focus – reaching Dallas and the girl. I had no idea what I was going to do once I was there; I just knew I had to take this opportunity before it was gone. Before she was gone. What if I never saw her again?
Before I reached the end of the aisle, someone grabbed me from behind. A loud grunting sound escaped my throat as I came to a complete stop. Their arm wrapped around my neck and pulled me tight into a headlock. I placed my hands on their arm and tried to pry them off, but the harder I fought, the tighter they squeezed.
“What in the hell are you doing?” Dean spat at me.
I couldn’t answer him because his arm was constricting my ability to talk…and breathe. He hauled me back to our seats, throwing me down in mine, then stood in front of me with the strangest look on his face, almost like he didn’t know me at all. He finally looked around the room, and my eyes followed his. Luckily, not many people were watching us because their attention was still turned to the main stage where the last of the graduates were being presented with their diplomas. He slapped me across the head and laughed. I assumed it was in an effort to make it look like we were just playing around, so I glared at him because I wasn’t in the mood for games.
I opened my mouth to tell him to mind his own business, but he spoke first.
“I don’t know what’s going on, but you need to chill out. What were you gonna do? Run over there and fight Dallas for talking to a girl you don’t even know? What’s wrong with you?” He finally took his seat next to me, but clamped his hand down on my shoulder so hard it made me flinch.

I leaned forward and ran my hands over my face, then through my messy hair. “I don’t know. There’s just something about her, I don’t know how to explain it. I know her, but I don’t,” I admitted and shook my head to try and clear my mind, but everything remained hazy.
