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 . . .
What drew me to Before We Fall by Courtney Cole was a crazy intense romance filled with passion. Added to that memorable characters filled with struggle and growth that grab be me into their story.
Jacey and Dominic were really interesting characters that from the start I wanted to get to know all about their dark pasts. I wanted to know how they would overcome their past issues and deal with the mounting situations that kept piling on them. Following them as they navigated the trickiness of their situations and the growing feelings for each other was very entertaining.
I enjoyed the edge in how Dominic and Jacey was force to work together giving them the opportunity to learn more about each other and develop their relationship. As well as allowing me to learn who they are as characters and to really get a feel of the world they lived in.
Dominic aka Mr. Kinky was all dark, twisted, tormented, and oh so flawed. It made him intriguing and really built up the anticipation for when and how he’d fall in love with Jacey. Now Jacey ,while dealing with her own troubling past unlike Dominic, she makes moves to fix and better herself which I give her props for. She was confident even in the face of her own downfalls and shortcoming and I understood and felt her vulnerabilities.
The romance between Dominic and Jacey was blazing. Filled with intensity and emotion. Even through all the drama and sadness of their past and a lot of push and pull they couldn’t deny the way they felt for each other.
I was really feeling Before We Fall by Courtney Cole. It dealt with intense conflict, passionate romance and interesting characters. I enjoyed reading Dominic and Jacey’s journey in dealing with their past and their potential future.
