Review + #Giveaway: Before We Fall by Courtney Cole

Sometimes, one dark moment is all it takes to turn your world black...

For 24-year old Dominic Kinkaide, that moment took place on the night of his high school graduation. One dark incident changed him forever. He's a hardened actor now, famous in the eyes of the world, but tortured in his own. He doesn't care about much of anything, except for losing himself in the roles that he plays.

23-year 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 rather it's an absence of moments. She's like a bird with a broken wing-strong yet fragile, as she tries to float through life, finding acceptance in the arms of random guys, one after the other... to fill the void that her father left in her.

Until she meets Dominic.

After jaded Dominic and strong-willed Jacey are thrown together, his secret and her issues create a dark and damaged energy that will soon turn their attraction to each other into an explosive storm.

Even though when the clouds have cleared and the dust has settled, both of them are almost obliterated... they've learned a priceless lesson.

Sometimes, before we fall... we fly.

WOW! This was one scorcher of a read!! Absolutely fantastic.

Move over Christian Grey, Dominic Kinkaide needs to take his rightful place as king of the broken bad boys!!

I LOOOVED Dominic. He was so complex, and he certainly knew how to get my attention. In fact he demanded it whenever he appeared in this story, and I gave it to him 100%. Of course, who doesn't love a lost soul who needs some fixing, and even though Dom didn't believe he could be fixed, even thought he felt he deserved to be disconnected on every emotional level, he had more heart and goodness in his soul than he gave himself credit for. I was thoroughly intrigued by his story. What had happened in the past that made him torture himself so much? It was a guessing game from the start, and when the truth was finally revealed, I was blown away because it was so much more darker than I could have ever imagined. 

I was expecting more from Jacey. I felt like I never fully knew her or understood her story. Not the way I did with Dom. He may have closed himself off from everything, but he became an open book, and I would have liked to have seen the same for Jacey. It makes me wonder if I should grab a copy of If You Leave (Yes, I haven't read it! Please don't hurt me - unless you're sending Dominic to do the hurting, then YES, PLEASE!!!) I'm not sure how much of Jacey and her story is in the second book in the Beautifully Broken series, but I really want to get a better sense of who she is. She was sweet, and kind, and gentle, and I knew she was living with the guilt of what Jared had done, but I wanted to know more.

This story was HOT! The chemistry between Jacey and Dominic was off the charts, and the sex was dirty and raw, but very sensual. I was sent on an emotional roller coaster ride with soaring highs and crushing lows. A stellar read that will break your heart at the same time it warms it.
