Bravo Shannon bravo! First off, thank you so much for my copy. The book is gorgeous and I love that it is signed to me. Thank you again!!

Okay this cover, awesome right? It catches your eye like all the great covers do. And the title. Aww. At first I was thinking...um...sex...but nope. The title is perfect and you find out the meaning towards the end of the book.

Now the review itself. I loved this book! I wish that I didn't have to work so that I could have just read it and done nothing else. Let me tell you about Shannon McCrimmon though first. She wrote a series before this book, The Summer I Learned to Dive and The Year I Almost Drowed, both with are amazing. Shannon knows romance and tragedy and she manages to write exact novels about it. Well now continuing with Kiss Me Hard Before You Go. Amazing. The best way to describe this book. I was captivated from page one and I stayed interested throughout the novel. I wanted to know how this farm girl and carny's story ended. Evie, a farm girl in a small community lives with her dad and cares for cows. One day she wants to leave the farm. Every year they have a carnival come to town and set up on their land in order to bring in extra cash. Cue Finch. Finch was born into carnival life and can't wait to get out of it. During the summer of 1978 Finch and Evie finally discover each other. On the way they experience life, loss, and romance.

This book was not what I was expecting...it was better! I have loved Shannon's other books but man this one is more than amazing. It had you laughing, crying, aww-ing, and so much more. My only thing is I wish there would be a sequel. I want more Evie, Finch, Katie, Cooper, Doris, Mouse, and Friedrich. Oh yes there are more characters that you will fall in love with. See, now go out and buy this awesome book!

Format: Paperback
The instant you set your eyes on the cover of this amazing novel, you are hooked. The image of the innocent farm girl with the carnival as a backdrop immediately catches your attention. The cover and the quirky title hint at a sexy romance novel but the reader will be pleasantly surprised. Few authors are able to grab a reader’s attention through book covers and titles and also hold the reader’s interest through the entire book. By transference of thoughts and emotions of the main character into your mind, Shannon McCrimmon is able to do in Kiss Me Hard Before You Go.
Kiss Me Hard Before You Go is a novel of first love, friendships and families. Through her descriptive writing, the reader becomes the characters in the story and at times being able to imagine the smell of the fresh mown hay, cigarette smoke, the buttered popcorn and the cotton candy. Her characters are so believable you feel the emotions, the love, the sense of family that keeps Evie from leaving her farm life behind and striking out in search of new adventures even though that is what she longs to do.
Ms. McCrimmon is able to successfully hide some of life’s little lessons deep within the story, never preaching the lessons but in the end, you uncover her hidden thoughts and concepts and the quirky title takes on a meaning.
Evie, the innocent farm girl is not your normal teenager. She is a loner as so many country farm girls are and Ms. McCrimmon captures her personality perfectly with just the right blend of Southern charm and sassy country attitude. She longs for the day she will leave the farm and make her own start in life but she knows that her father would like her to stay and run the farm.

Masterful character development brings you into the lives of some very believable young people. I was taken back in time to the 70s with Evie and Finch in South Carolina where I felt their heart ache and their joy, their excitement and their apprehension as they navigated through their trials and tribulations they encountered at the carnival, on the farm and in the small southern town. I loved this book that took me to those places. I could almost smell the manure, the popcorn and the cigarette smell. Fabulous book that I highly recommend!

4.5 Stars - a sweet romance that shows two sides of a coin...the life of a farmer, and the life of a carnie - and those two opposites show the how different things can be for both a small town girl and a boy with no roots, and whose life constantly takes him to a new town. I appreciate this clean, emotionally pinging read that will strike at your heart chords, and make you fall in love with the characters - sometimes just before pulling the rug out from underneath you. *I received a copy of this book for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review*

This book was absolutely precious! I loved it and didn't want to put it down the entire time I read it. I had to of course, but it was with great difficulty. I knew the second I saw the cover and read the blurb, McCrimmon had a winner on her hands. First of all...how stinkin’ adorable is the cover? Like major adorable, right? Right. Secondly, loved the story. I mean 1978 was an awesome year. I was born. Duh.

"The Sun is a star," she said. She rarely paid attention in science class, but that was the one thing she remembered.
"You're like the sun," he said.
"How's that?"
"You brighten my day and give it life."

We follow Evie and her father as they welcome the fair onto their land for the next five weeks. Well, Evie doesn't necessarily welcome them with open arms. In fact, she despises its very presence. But this year is different. This year she meets the incorrigible Finch Mills.
Everything about him drives her nuts. And nothing she says is able to deter him from smirking at her. But soon they form a relationship that is unlike any the two have ever had.

This book will have you rolling with the flow of emotions. It will have you smiling one second, only to be tearing up the next. It will have you feel as if you are flying with the birds, elated at the happiness that is happening in the moment, just to be thrown down into the trenches of sadness in the next turn. My heart was all over the place. And I loved every second of it.

The characters. Oh these fun, beautiful, melt your heart characters. And I am not just talking about Evie and Finch. Oh no. There are all the others as well. Like Doris, Mouse, Katie, and more. They all play a role and play it well.
