New Adult Romance Book


In the bestselling tradition of J.A. Redmerski and Jessica Sorensen come the next novel in Courtney Cole's New York Times bestselling Beautifully Broken Series... Sometimes before we fall . . . we fly.

One dark moment was all it took to turn twenty-four-year-old Dominic Kinkaide's world black. On the night of his high school graduation, a single incident changed him forever, and he became a hardened man-famous in the eyes of the world, but tortured inside. Now all he cares about is losing himself in the roles that he plays. At twenty-three years old, Jacey Vincent doesn't realize how much her father's indifference has affected her. She is proof that sometimes it isn't one specific moment that wrecks a person, but an absence of moments. She tries to find acceptance in the arms of men to fill the void-a plan that has worked just fine for her, until she meets Dominic. When jaded Dominic and strong-willed Jacey are thrown together, the combination of his secrets and her issues turns their attraction into the perfect storm. It could change their lives for good-if it doesn't tear them both apart . . .

(From NetGalley)

I really like books written by this author because she really gets into the nitty gritty of her characters and exposes all of their flaws, while somehow maintaining their integrity, too. I'm happy to say, she continues the tradition with Before We Fall. This book was so good, I never wanted it to end! I wasn't sure about Jacey as a heroine, at first (I wasn't too impressed with her in the previous book), but she actually proved herself a worthy heroine. And I loved her relationship with Brand - I just felt so bad for him because he so obviously loves her - and she doesn't feel anything but sisterly towards him. Heartbreaking.

But this book was all about Dominic and holy freaking hotness! I don't know what to say about him. He was a deliciously bad character, but he was still redeemable and even if he didn't see it, Jacey did. I loved getting to know him and seeing how he changed during the course of their time together until he finally let her in, but this is a guy who is still so haunted by a tragedy from his past, he has a hard time letting anyone get close - even his own brothers. Personally, I'd loved to get to know his brothers more, too - love me some Sin!

This was just a fun read all around and I recommend it for anyone looking for something good, hot and romantic to read, especially if they've already read the first two books in the series. Read this one now!
