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 . . .



I was a little skeptical when I started reading Before We Fall but I must say Courtney Cole did not disappoint me; she made me fall in love with Dominic and Jacey!!

Dominic prefers to lose himself to the characters he plays instead of losing himself to love. That is one game that he NEVER plans to lose to again. I couldn't understand really why he was a cold hearted a** at times but as I kept reading, I put the pieces together and by the time the puzzle was complete, I was left with my mouth wide open!!

Jacey is sweet, innocent but not so wise. She’s always making decisions that not only affect her but those around her. The first time she meets Dominic she feels she really sees through him and into the darkness that he hides from the world. Jacey tries hard to make Dominic see that he is worth loving and being loved, no matter what's happened in his past, but the pain and darkness in his life are more powerful than Jacey.

Dominic continually tells Jacey he’s no good for her and that he can’t give her what she wants but she refuses to see that...until he takes her to an event and she finally realizes that, this time, Dominic might actually be right. The best way I can describe the interaction between Dominic and Jacey is like oil and water; you never know which one will end up on top!

This beautiful story of Beauty and the Beast had my emotions all over the place and yes, there were tears of sadness, but there were also tears of happiness. Oh, and the sexiness that oozed throughout the book had me fanning myself!

Ms Cole, thank you for such an emotionally beautiful love story of finding yourself, loving and allowing yourself to be loved, and forgiving yourself so you can move forward. The epilogue alone had me tearing up so thank you!! 5 Emotionally Sexy Stars

Courtney Cole is a novelist who would eat mythology for breakfast if she could. She has a degree in Business, but has since discovered that corporate America is not nearly as fun to live in as fictional worlds. She loves chocolate and roller coasters and hates waiting and rude people. Courtney lives in quiet suburbia, close to Lake Michigan, with her real-life Prince Charming, her ornery kids (there is a small chance that they get their orneriness from their mother) and a small domestic zoo.
