Before You Go by Ella James

 Book Description:

Margo Ford just became an heiress. Not the Paris Hilton kind. Her billions came after her father died and her insanely wealthy, insanely absent mother officially claimed her. Unfortunately, some terrorists noticed, and they hatched a plot to kidnap her. After a news report goes awry, reporting that Margo *has* been kidnapped, and her mother offers the humiliating sum of $500,000 for her return, Margo doesn't want anything to do with her *#$!@ of an egg donor. Then she is sentenced to a summer of "protection" on her mother's private island. Not the Oprah Winfrey kind. This one has an astronomical observatory filled with scientists, including Logan Greer, a super hot, super infuriating planet-hunter. Hiding out from kidnappers has never been so boring... until suddenly it isn't anymore.

Christina's BookReview
Margo is sent to Isis to be protected from a threat of kidnapping. After her fathers death she is hoping to have that time to get to know the mother that had abandoned her. Unfortunately, Cindy, Margo's mother, isn't looking for any mother/daughter time. When Margo has no one to turn to on Isis she seeks the company of Logan Greer. When Logan seems to treat her like crap she decides to ignore him. But ignoring him isn't the easiest thing when they are constantly thrown together. What happens when trying to avoid each other seems hopeless? Read to find out. 

This book had a good plot line but fell a little flat for me. I thought the characters could have a little more depth and that the secondary ones should have been more in the book. The book mainly consisted of Margo getting mad at Logan and Logan avoiding her, that's it. The most difficult thing was trying to bypass all the mistakes in the book. Unfortunately this book didn't seem to be edited in anyway. I gave this book 3 stars because it had great promise and I was intrigued with the plot. If the author had spent a little more time editing and developing the characters as well as adding more depth to the storyline, this would have been a 5 star book.
