Before We Fall by Courtney Cole: Review

The Beautifully Broken Series #3

Synopsis

Sometimes before we fall…we fly.
 
One dark moment was all it took to turn twenty-four-year-old Dominic Kinkaide’s world lack. 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…

Guest Reviewer Tina Says…

“Answer the question, Yes or No?”  Such a simple question, but one posed by Dominic Kinkaide often in Before We Fallby Courtney Cole.  Sexy actor Dominic has had to live with the guilt and pain of a horrific incident involving his first true love after they graduated high school.  In trying to hide how dark and tortured he felt, he turned to a life of not having any feelings for himself or anyone else. Then Jacey Vincent storms into his life.   Jacey has her own issues too.  She is trying to find her place in this world.  Having had a very unloving childhood, Jacey turned to men to fill a void within her.  She has worked hard to put her life back together until she is forced to spend much more time with Dominic.
“But my problem is, every time I look into his dark eyes and see the mysterious things that lurk there, I forget that.  I forget everything that is supposed to matter.”
Their physical attraction is undeniable…completely off the charts.  Dominic knows he is bad for Jacey, but she can’t help the feelings that she is developing for him.  He is so wounded and broken and Jacey will do everything in her power to fix him.  In order for their relationship to move forward, Dominic has to work through all of the guilt, resentment and hurt that he is still feeling from that awful night many years ago.   Will Dominic allow himself the right to be happy?
“How many times do we have to fall before we finally fly?
Where do I even begin with this book?  First of all, I love a book that has a strong female character and Jacey was that for me!  Poor Dom was so broken, beyond repair, but Jacey’s words to him were so heartwarming and smart!  You couldn’t help but fall in love with her!!!!  Secondly, Courtney’s writing is brilliant. The twists and turns this book takes are amazing and the book comes full circle at the end, which I found incredible!!!  Thirdly, the physical attraction between Dom and Jacey is HOT. Their chemistry is sizzling and will leave you wanting more!  Before We Fall is the third book in Courtney’s Beautifully Broken Series.  I highly recommend reading If You Stay and If You Leave first.  Each book is a standalone book, but the stories overlap and you need the background from the first 2 books!
