 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

My Thoughts:
Courtney Cole just set my Kindle Fire on fire (pun intended).  I love all Courtney Cole's novels, but as I started reading BEFORE WE FALL, I said, OMG, this is BDSM or very kinky sex and I'm not really into that kind of thing. But I gotta tell you, I quickly fell in love with this heart touching story with Dominic and Jacey. Cole gave me a  dark masochistic romance with a beautiful healing love, hope and forgiveness for the mind, heart and body. I love how 
Cole took this damaged man and through Jacey’s beautiful heart, showed Dominic love’s healing power. Cole definitely changed my mind about kinky sex.

Dominic Kinkaide had my blood boiling, and it most definitely wasn't in the swoon-worthy way. When I first started this novel, I wanted so badly for Jacey to slap Dom into the next Century. But Jacey is a stronger woman than me, and her love for Dom gave her the strength she needed for this heartless man. I really enjoyed where Cole took this sadistic storyline and yes, I fell in love Dominic Kinkaide with all my body parts. ;)

Courtney Cole took me to the dark side of sex and lust and gave me a beautiful, healing love story of forgiveness. So needless to say, when it comes to BDSM or really kinky sex romance by Courtney Cole, she has also won my heart with Dominic. I highly recommend BEFORE WE FALL as a never-knew-pain-could-hurt-so-good must read!

Some of my favorite BEFORE WE FALL quotes:

I like to watch.
  I know that I shouldn't, but I don't really give a shit.
Forbidden things are what lift my dick. Dark things, bad things.
Men, by and large, aren't gentlemen. We're assholes.
"Dominic will do. I tend to drop the 'fucking.' Unless of course, I'm actually fucking."
 "Don't love me," he says simple. "Or I'll break you. I won't want to, but it will happen."
   "I love you," I whisper hesitantly. "I do."
     Dominic closes his eyes, squeezes them closed as his hands slide lightly down my back, his fingernails grazing my skin. "Don't." he whispers.
    "Don't love me."
 "Jacey, you try and see the good in everyone. That's your mistake. You think that if you look hard enough, you'll find it, that everyone has something in them that deserves you. But that's so fucking wrong. Very few people deserve you. And that includes me."
