Summary –

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.  (Thanks to for the summary)

My Thoughts –

Before We Fall is a well written love story.  This is the third in the Beautifully Broken series, but I didn’t feel lost coming into it at this stage in the series.  The dialogue, descriptive writing and overall story works so well, it’s hard to put down once you start.

Jacey is a great character.  She’s been through a lot and wants to find someone in the world to love her.  She helps Dominic out in a big way and shows him that people are still good and selfless.  Dominic is a bit jaded from his fame and success.  He doesn’t trust anyone and isn’t looking for anyone to open up to. 

I love the chemistry between these two, they’re an awesome couple.  They hate each other, they like each other, they can’t get enough of each other.  I like these kinds of stories, way over the “I love you first sight” kind.

Great as a stand-still and great addition to the series, which I may have to read now.  Easy to read, fast paced and great use on modern language/dialogue.  I look forward to more from this author for sure!!
