Ex-SEAL Tucker Frost knows that the world is full of evil. He saw it in the face of his own brother, Jason Frost, a cold, methodical, sadistic killer. A killer Tucker put down with his own hands in order to save Jason's final victim--Dawn Alexander, the only girl who got away from the infamous "Iceman."

It's Tucker's up close and personal experience with evil that's made him perfect for Samantha Dark's experimental profiling division in the FBI. And when women start turning up murdered with the same MO used by the Iceman, Tucker is sent back to Louisiana to investigate.

Seven years have passed since the night that Tucker faced down his brother...and since he last saw Dawn, his one-time lover. But as Tucker and Dawn grapple with a desire that never died, they must also face the shared shadow from their pasts. Both have the same question--has Jason Frost come back from the dead to hunt again? And this time, will he succeed in killing the victim who got away?

I can honestly say as of right now I have yet to not enjoy a book by Cynthia Eden. I'm just a huge fan of hers. She has a way of writing hero's that will make your heart sigh! I just don't know what it is about them that makes me feel that way. 

Of course I do, they are always tough, warm caring and loving men that will go to the ends of the earth for you. Who wouldn't love that? They also know when to step back and let you handle your own life. 

The whole package! 

Before the Dawn is a complicated story that will keep you on your toes. You just don't know who to trust or who is on who's side. Sure, the author tell's you who's good or who's bad but do we believe her? 

You could, but I wouldn't. 

You'll just shudder at what Dawn has gone through. One second she was happy and living a comfortable life and the next she's about to die because of a serial killer. If that's not enough another killer is after her! This woman has shit luck! If I were you I'd stay very far away from her. 

Dawn isn't the only one affected by the serial killer so was Tucker. He had to do what no brother should have had to, kill his own brother. Can you see how intense this book is going to be? Oh you are just going to love it. I know I did. 

You'll love both Dawn and Tucker and pray that all will be well with them throughout the story as you try to figure out who's good and who's bad! I'm really loving this series. So far this ones my favorite but that could change with Bowen's story! Oh Bowen!!! 

If you've read Before the Dawn or any other book by Cynthia Eden I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for visiting and happy reading! ♡
