Summary: Model Finley needs someone to help her shed her “good girl” persona, so she’ll try Eddie on for size. New York City model Finley is fed up with hearing the same feedback at castings: she needs to take some serious action to wipe the “good girl” stamp from her resume if she wants to launch to stardom. Enter Eddie Wells. He’s shallow, predictable…and just as lost as Finley feels. Deep down, Finley is drawn to Eddie’s bravado, his intensity. Except Eddie is hiding something. A big something. And when it surfaces, both loving and leaving Finley will become so much harder. (Goodreads)

It’s about two models. Finley and Eddie.
Finley is a sweet loving daughter, doting big sister, and everything you ever wanted in a friend. Finley whose hobby is knitting determined to reopen her mother’s dance studio. In order to do that, she had to do a much cooler job with a big high-end brands. But her sweet personality added with her wholesome look got in the way for her to land a much cooler job because the agency deemed her as too sweet and didn’t fit to do a photoshoot with edgier look.
Eddie is the new boy in the city trying to make a living a model. He got the whole package, bad boy looks, charms, lovable, you name it.
They both met in a party and ended up involved in a one-night-stand. Could they survive the awkward morning after?
You Before Anyone Else is such a cute story only before we find out about the plot twist. The secret Eddie has been keeping all this time.
I find how Eddie handled the situation is so unrealistic. No eighteen years old boy would do that or would win the case in real life. And the whole thing is just so unfair on Finley’s part.
Nonetheless, the ending wrap up pretty nicely.
