    The Night Before Christian was my first book by author Joy Avery. In fact, I hadn't ever heard of this author, but I'm glad I stumbled upon her work, and she is a fellow North Carolinian, so I that much happier to support her work. I enjoyed Emory and Christian's story very much. This was a quick holiday read. Love lost and love returned, only to be quickly followed by the heartbreak that said lover is off limits due to upcoming nuptials.

There were some quite interesting characters introduced along the way (Mrs. St. Clair, Jordyn) who moves the story along quite nicely. I will definitely be looking for other novels by Mrs. Avery to add to my TBR list.

    This Love story was questionable at first. Questionable in the since that it seemed like the main characters Emory and Christian weren't going to be able to move past the hurt from their previous breakup with one another. But then the story reveals their undying Love for one another that conqured all the hurt and barriers that broke them apart and tried to keep them apart.

    What can I say, this book was simply wonderful. It was funny, loving, entertaining and sexy. It was also, easy to read and a page turner to boot. I was engrossed and found myself snared and determined not to move until I’d read the last page. The characters were well written, along with the supporting cast. I recommend this book, I think you will thoroughly enjoy it.

    Love this story! Sweet w/just the right amount of heat. 4.6 stars I usually don't spend much time with romances; guess I like them best if the story itself is interesting and compelling. This was the perfect mix, and with a crazy sister to remind them what's important PS yes, with a happy ending

    Fantastic Story Hot damn, I need to go see Santa. Christian and Emory's love story was fantastic with a few tears dispersed in. The other characters enhanced the story. This is my first book by Ms Avery but definitely not my last.

    3 1/2 star I received this book as a Good Reads First Read book giveaway, and was appreciative I received it. After the first few chapters this reminded me of the Harlequin Love Inspired books they have. Just a 'splash' of reference to God or having Faith. I have to say the first half of the book I did find more interesting and flowed better than the later half but over all still enjoyed the book. I would read this author again. For my preteen readers that may want to pick this book up. It depend 3 1/2 star I received this book as a Good Reads First Read book giveaway, and was appreciative I received it.

For my preteen readers that may want to pick this book up. It depends upon how much you have talked to your child about sex and dating etc. As it does have some language and some description of sexual content. (Toward the last half of the book) So I probably would not recommend this for a preteen; but again depends upon how much they already 'know'

    Beautiful Love Story This was my first time reading anything by this author and I loved it. What a beautiful love story Christian and Emory had such a beautiful strong love. The circumstances that made this break up and go their separate ways were bound to unravel once they saw each other again.

    The Nght Before Christian ....loved it Emory and Christian didn't have a perfect love....they had a true love. I loved everything about this story.....from the characters to how New York was described. I loved how they still had each other's back even after misunderstandings due to Grandma. Jordan was crazy,funny and loving. I hope she has a story coming. The reference to Alzheimer's Disease made the story so real. This condition is just frightening in what it does!

    Absolutely beautiful! Emory only wants one thing for Christmas: a strong, loving and reliable man. Well Santa delivers, but not the man Emory was expecting! Two years ago, Em's family drama forced her to walk away from Christian St. Claire, the only man she's ever loved. Now he's standing in front of her ordering flowers for his upcoming wedding to someone else. I don't know if even Santa can fix this hot mess!

    Great Read This was an excellent read that everyone will enjoy. It's hard to get over first loves. With everything thrown at you from different directions, sometimes you have to ask, is it worth all the hassle? I must say the ending shocked me in a way I was not expecting. This is a book that I will recommend to others.

    Better Editing Needed I really enjoy Ms. Avery's books. I like the length especially as well as the easy read of the story line. However, the lack of thorough editing makes understanding what's being said challenging.

    Nice Story The night before Christian was a nice well written story. Joy never fails to deliver a nicely told love story. In this story, Christian gets the chance for a do over with the woman he's always loved. Well done

    I enjoyed reading this book about Emory, florist's surprise encounter with her ex-fiancée Christian, and his new fiancée, Yasmin, as they request Emory's services for their upcoming nuptials. The love being Emory and Christian was still strong.

    Good read Christian and Emory love was tested and pulled by family issues and a grandmother with a twisted sense of love. But prayer changes things.
