Book Description:

When it comes to tattooed bad boys, Chase Gartner is the real deal. Partying, engaging in meaningless sex, getting into fights---Chase indulges in it all during his late teen years, thus firmly solidifying his status as a heartbreakingly gorgeous but way-too-dangerous-to-trust guy in his hometown of Harmony Creek, Ohio. Then, following one fateful night of reckless decisions, Chase's actions finally catch up to him and land him in prison. 

Now, four years have passed and Chase finds himself a free man. He returns to Harmony Creek, ready to pick up the pieces and start rebuilding his shattered life. 
Things are off to a promising start when he meets Kay Stanton, a young woman with a tragic past of her own. Despite a powerful attraction, Chase and Kay are naturally hesitant to become involved. That's why friendship feels like the safest option. But when passions ignite and love blossoms, a relationship that is destined and meant to be can only be resisted for so long. When Chase and Kay finally succumb to their feelings they realize being together feels more right and true than anything they have ever experienced. 
But their love is soon tested. Chase's wild past still haunts and tempts him, and Kay is keeping a secret that could tear them apart. 
I Stand Before You is a journey of hope and forgiveness, coming to terms with the past and moving forward. But mostly it's a story of two damaged people who take a chance, open their hearts, and find true love. 
New Adult/Contemporary Romance genres. First in a series.

 (*I received a copy of I Stand Before You for this tour. I'm not a paid reviewer. All thoughts are my own*)

I Stand Before You turned out to be a good book. It started off slow for me and I wont lie it had me a little worried that I wouldn't like it at all. I was wrong by the end of the book I found I truly enjoyed it an will probably be picking up the next book in the series to see what happens next.

I Stand Before You is told in the POV of the to main characters Chase and Kay. They are both broken in someway- Mentally/Emotionally/- They both have past they would either love to change or forget about completely. Once they find each other its like they are a puzzle of broken piece that fit so perfectly together that they create something new and whole. They help each other get through their hard time and without Judgement. They find it easy to forgive and not judge each other of their wrongs. Chase and Kay are simply adorable together.

All in all I stand before you may have started a little slow for me but as I continued to read I started to find I really did enjoy it/ I would love to see what happens to Chase and Kay in the next book. My final rating would be a 3.5 close to a 4 star book.
