#BookReview #Giveaway Before We fall by Courtney Cole @Court_Writes


BEFORE WE FALL by Courtney Cole (November 4, 2014; Forever Trade Paperback; $12.00)


Book Blurb

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 . . .

Maya's Review

Sometimes you pick up a book that you just don’t want to put down again. This is one of those books.

I was left totally breathless and emotionally tangled up after reading this. From the first page I was sucked into a story that had me going "what?", "really?" and "no freaking way" throughout.

The characters are just fantastic. I loved Dominic in all his brokenness. I'm not sure I've read another male character that touched me the way he did. He was so damaged I wanted to fix him myself.

Jacey was the perfect girl for him. She was damaged herself but she saw beyond Dom's barriers. Like me she wanted to fix him and by heck did she try.

I really don't want to give you spoilers. All I have to say is that if you enjoy new adult romance, then you've got to read this one. Some scenes in here left me with tears in my eyes.

This is my first time of reading Courtney Cole and it sure won't be the last. She has a new fan. I don't give full marks easily but this one deserves it. An awesome book.

      “Are you feeling warm yet?”
I watch his lips as he speaks the words, husky and low.   His lips are full, yet manly and suddenly I ache to lean over and press mine to his, to touch them in any way that I can. 
But I don’t. 
Because I’m not a girl who gets used.  Not anymore. 
 “No, not at all.”
But Dominic takes that as a challenge.  He’s not used to hearing the word no and he’s not about to start now.  I see that in his dark eyes a scant moment before he dips his head and consumes my mouth.
I say consume, instead of kiss, because that’s what he does.
He consumes me.
His lips are fiery and hot and he kisses me with a fierceness that touches a secret part of me; moist, hot, firm, sexy.  I want to inhale him, to suck him down.  I vaguely feel his hands on my back, his warmth emanating through my clothes, his hardness pushing into my softness.
I’m breathless when he pulls away. 
“What about now?”
For the life of me, I’m afraid to answer that. Instead I pull away, just a bit, just enough that there is some space between us, but I can still absorb his warmth. As my teeth chatter, both from the cold and from the sudden absence of his lips, I answer.
“I’m good.”
He laughs, a husky, low, naughty sound.
“Oh, I’m sure of that.”
And just like that, I’m drawn back in . . . in toward his sexy smile, his arrogant gaze, and his knowing smirk. He’s bad for me. Very bad for me. I’ve got to remember that.
He will decimate you, I tell myself.
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.
