Review: Before We Fall (Beautifully Broken #3) by Courtney Cole

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.

Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

Sometimes before we fall . . . we fly.
Young love can be a blessing and a curse!  In this remarkable book by Courtney Cole, young love turns from a happily ever after to a tortured reality for half of the couple. This is the third book in the Beautifully Broken series and tells of redemption and love found, it is Jacey and Dominic’s story.
Dominic has achieved success and at the age of twenty-four he is jaded and looks at the world through pain ravaged eyes.  He has become a introvert in a world of extroverts, Hollywood.  His heart, mind and soul are encased in ice not allowing anyone inside.  The only relationships that he allows himself are deviant and even those are according to his rules.  Everything changes for Dominic the night he looked into a pair of innocent brown eyes and was trapped. The more time he spent with her and the more he learned about the woman, the more his ice begins to melt around his heart.  But he believes that he is a monster, will he be able to let go of his past?  Can he find redemption?

When you have been treated with indifference all your life by the one person that should be on your side, you tend to feel worthless.  This is the life that Jacey Vincent has lived for her short twenty-three years.  The only one that has protected and loved her has been her older brother.  With his guidance, she has finally started seeing her own worth and who she really is inside.  When she meets Dominic at one of his brother’s parties that she is working at, Jacey recognizes another tortured soul.  She knows that he is someone she should avoid at all cost, but finds she cannot deny him.  Will he be another one in the long list of wrong choices?  Or will they find a way to help each other?

The two main characters are both struggling to survive in a world that is slowly eating away at their souls. Will they be able to unburden the hurt inside?  Can the secrets that both hold close be revealed?  The feelings that they have for one another will either release them or destroy them and only through taking a chance will they find out!
