**** I received an ARC copy of this book in exchange for an honest review ***
There is nothing I love better than starting a book from a series that I have loved, and being surprised by where the author is taking the next book. I could tell from the first chapter that this storyline was going to be different slightly more darker and sexier than the last two book in the series.
“I’m Dominic fucking Kinkaide and nothing bothers me. Nothing touches me, because I won't let it”
Dominic Kinkaide or Kinky Dom as I liked to refer to him while reading this book was definitely different from Pax and Gabe, and I have a feeling that I’m not going to forget Dominic in a while. One night from Dominic past not only changed him, but also shaped the way he now lives his life, and the choices he chooses to make.
“I never talk about my past or anything at all about me, but woman can still sense that I’m fucked up. What they don’t understand ….is that I’m unfixable” ~ Dominic
‘You’re jaded. And dark. And something has hurt you badly, something in your past. You think you’re alone, all alone and you’re tired of everything” ~ Jacey
Dominic was such a complex character I went from not liking him one minute to loving him the next, and back again. He is broken, has his walls up, and never lets anyone get close. Has a dark side, he is arrogant, full of himself, yet when he wants to be he can be sweetheart, romantic, protective and funny and lets not forget to mention kinky ;)
“I like Kinky things. Dirty things. Is that a problem” ~ Dominic
Jacey Vincent she has had a troubled past, I saw a different side to her in this book, she had changed, She is trying to fight her own demons and is slowly winning, and I couldn't help but admire her.
“I got myself into the worst situation because of my bad judgment. But all of these things are issues that I’m working on. “ ~ Jacey
I’m working on myself and I’m not going to settle for anyone less that the perfect person for me. Someone who values me and won’t push me around. That include you” ~ Jacey.
There is something unique about their relationship; I like the dynamic of it and them. I felt from the beginning that fate kept throwing them together. These two were meant to be together and I was rooting for them. I loved what Jacey tries, and ultimately did to, and for Dominic. I enjoyed watching the way their relationship it played out, their attraction, their denial, their sexual tension, their chemistry, their passion, their hurt, their honesty, their transformation, and their healing. Loved it all!!
“I’m not sure what it is about her that fascinates me so much, whether it’s the fact that she doesn’t give a shit who I am or whether it’s the fact that she doesn’t try to hide who she is” ~ Dominic
“There’s something between us…and I know you can feel it too. We have the opportunities for something real, Dom even though we’re pretending that we don’t we really do” ~ Jacey
The storyline is emotional, its deep, and dark, with plenty angst, with a few twists along the way and lots of sexy hotness. Told from both Dominic and Jacey’s POV, which as always I love. Courtney Cole writes their points of views in such away that it made me feel, and connect to both Dominic and Jacey their emotions all of them happy, sad or painful were my emotions they both break my heart at times.
“There’ so much more to Dominic Kinkaide than anyone knows. I can feel it” ~ Jacey
“Don’t love me…or I’ll break you. I wont want to, but it will happen” ~ Dominic
“I know its stupid to say. But his gaze is that intense. It’s like he can see inside of me, deep into my most private thoughts into where my secrets lie.”~ Jacey
Loved the secondary characters such as Dominic brother’s Sin and Duncan, Joe from the gym. I have to talk about Brand who is Jacey’s brother Gabe’s best friend I fell in love with him in ‘If You Leave’, and after reading this one, I still loved him if not more. There is just something about him (I love men with muscles) he is a sweetheart. I said this the last time, and I’m going to say it again Courtney Cole this man is so worthy of his own book, I would even be happy with a novella…No no no!!! Forget that no novella I have just changed my mind Brand needs his own full book. PLEASE!!!
Overall ‘Before We Fall’ was a brilliant read, and I have to say my favorite in the series. Courtney Cole had done it again, and it safe to say that Dominic and Jacey’s story pulled me in from the start. Beautifully written, I laugh, I cried and most of all I felt. I loved the prologue, loved the ending, and Wow! I just loved the epilogue.
So I only have one last thing to say go 1- click this book today, and while your there 1-click the other books in the series if you haven’t read them already. You will not be disappointed.
