Welcome to the twenty fifth installment of “You’ll Never Believe…”

For those that don’t know what these new featurettes will be about, here is the scoop! “You’ll Never Believe…” will feature the weirdest questions or encounters that authors have been asked/had. Might be about their books or random things, like meetings in a bathroom where someone asked what brand of toilet paper they normally use. Fun stuff and inside scoops that an author would not normally share.

Today’s “You’ll Never Believe…” celebrates the release of Jessica Scott’s latest book “Before I Fall (Falling Book 1)” by telling us about her bunny slope danger!

You’ll Never Believe by Jessica Scott:

Soo there I was, standing at the top of the bunny slopes in Garmisch Germany. I had no idea how to ski and the mountain was oh, I don’t know, glare ice. My other half and I were just looking at each other like we were going to die – and to be honest, we’re lucky we didn’t. Even though it was the bunny slope, it might as well have been a black diamond because of the ice. I think we both busted our fourth points of contact a million times on the way down but funny thing about learning to ski on ice: you get really good at digging in your edges to keep from dying.

I haven’t been skiing in almost eight years because you know, life, but I’m hoping that being back in New England will give us a chance to get back out on the mountains.

Wanna know what Before I Fall (Falling Book 1) is about?:

Stay focused. Get a job. Save her father’s life.

Beth Lamont knows far too much about the harsh realities of life her gilded classmates have only read about in class. She’ll do whatever it takes to take care of her father, even if that means tutoring a guy like Noah – a guy who represents everything she hates about the war, soldiers and what the Army has done to her family.

Noah Warren doesn’t know how to be a student. All he knows is war. But he’s going to college now to fulfill a promise and he doesn’t break his promises. Except he doesn’t count on his tutor being drop dead gorgeous and distracting as hell. One look at Beth threatens to unravel the careful lies Noah has constructed around him.

A simple arrangement turns into something neither of them can deny. And a war that neither of them can forget could destroy them both.

This one sounds really interesting and remind me of a book called ‘Full Measure’ ( I hope I have got the title right) which was also about the similar issues and was a great book that a loved. Will look up this one as well.
