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.
Oh, the pain, the tears… the words. painfully captivating
Wow!! Yep, this book is by far, the best one of the year. I could not put it down, and I wanted more even when I finished!
I am so sad our local libraries doesn’t even have Courtney Cole, much less the beginning of the series, because I totally would load up on the other 2 books!
Dominic is so dark, mysterious, but he has so many walls up. Jacey knows something is bothering Dominic before he even tells her. She can read him like a book, and she is so sweet.
Before We Fall had me in tears, and I was fighting for everything. The story had me on the edge of my seat, squeezing tissues, putting my book down to clear my eyes so I could continue reading. However, these were not bad tears. These tears was tears of happiness, watching walls being torn down, frustration, and watching emotions fly across the pages. There was even parts where I caught myself smiling.
Jacey’s a powerful person, her will to give, and her passion is something that we should all live for. Jacey continues to push through life through the number of odds that was set out against her. However, she still smiled, loved surprises, and wanted to help everyone she could.
When Dominic and Jacey get together it is like immediately attraction, you can feel the “spark” before you even take off through the rest of the book. That “spark” only gets better as Jacey and Dominic intertwine through their own emotions, and heartache.
I completely will tell you to give this book a try! I am going to find the rest of the series, and I bet you will be looking for those books too! Now go, go, and Happy Reading!
