Before We Lit It Up by Amal Clare June 27, 2021

Full Summary and Author's Note

They say opposites attract. But that wasn't the case for Layla and Jaxon. 




Both bear the deep scars of despair, and for that, they were unknowingly drawn to each other.


After surviving a freak accident, Layla struggles to keep up with life and high school and move past the grief. Even though the cut ties, sleepless nights, and repeated blame almost makes it impossible. Until she meets Jaxon, someone who might just make life worth living again. But how can they find happiness with each other when they are both broken beyond repair? 




She will never see him again. 


After seizing a chance to escape from her past, Layla knows she's not going to make the same mistake she did three years ago. She's determined to move on from what happened, stay hidden from those in her past, and find happiness again. But like all things, that's easier said than done. 

And when the last person she expects collides into her life, it becomes near impossible. 



She doesn't believe in serendipity. 

He refuses to give up. 

 Maybe, they can light up each other's world. 

And keep it from burning. 


**Book 1 of the Serendipity trilogy**



Hello/ Salam / Bonjour

Thank you for checking my book out! It means so much and I am forever grateful. 

Some things you should know: 

-This book will not be coming out until June (maybe May) 2021. In the mean time, you can read 'I Am No Prey', if you're interested. 

-This is a romance, new-adult book. 

-This is a friends to lovers book, but it's also has a 'Before' and 'After' theme, because I wanted to write a book that is different from what you typically read in friends to lovers. 

-This is NOT an 'instant-love' book, that will leave you wondering when the hell did that happen?! 

-This book has a love-triangle. 

- This is the first book I'm  writing (attempting) in present tense, so there will probably be errors in the tenses.
