This series just keeps getting better. Before We Fall is the third book in Courtney Cole’s Beautifully Broken series and it is high praise when I say I feel this one was the best as I so enjoyed the other books. This book deals with Jacey, the sister to Gabe and good friend of Madison from the second book. Jacey meets Dominick, the Hollywood hearthrob that few know anything about since he keeps himself hidden away from others as best he can due to something devastating in his past.
I thought Cole did a great job in her last book describing the event which breaks our hero. She does just as good a job in this book. Often times when reading we get to the point in the book where we learn what the horrible secret is, and I find myself wondering, “really, is that all that happened?” Well not in this series, Cole shocks me everytime and I find myself breaking with the character. Along the same lines, I have always felt that Cole knows how to write chemistry between her Hero and Heroine. She knocks it out of the park on this one. Let me just say, our Hero’s name fits him well.
Jacey really comes through in this book as a strong heroine. She herself has a past she is working on, but despite this, her tough yet good-hearted nature gets her through. I love her relationship with Brand, her family friend, and how she handles it, and I loved the healing that takes place in the book.
I will finish my review by saying that I love books with Prologues and often feel like I am missing out if an Epilogue is not written. With that being said, I do not have the words to properly express how much I enjoyed the Prologue/Epilogue. Chills..tears..yep I LOVED it!!!

About the Book:
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
