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 REVIEW-

OMG!


It’s Dominic F*CKING Kinkaide!




I thought I have seen it all, I thought I have fallen in love with the most broken, lost, and sexiest movie star the literary world have introduced me too – but I guess I was wrong. Because I haven’t had the chance to meet this guy yet, and when I finally did – I was SPEECHLESS.


One single moment- it was all it take for Dominic Kinkaide’s world to go dark, and for him to get lost. During the night of his graduation – he lost something that haunted him since then. It was a moment that changed him, and had mold him for who he is now – hard, and cold-hearted. He likes kinky stuffs, some pain to go with it, and a girl who knows where she stands. He doesn’t care about anything in this world – except for his work.


Jacey Vincent didn’t have luck when it comes to her parents or her relationship with the opposite sex. I like her character – she might have been distraught from an ex who almost wrecked not just her life, but her family as well. Nevertheless, after a couple of therapies, she made it through. She might still be fragile at times, but she’s stronger. Until she meets Dominic – who can have every girl in his bidding.


They were unexpectedly thrown together in the weirdest circumstance – with his dark secret and her unsolved issues both of them would only crash and burn if they come together. But the attraction was intense, the tension was off the chart and I was wondering who would first act on it. Nevertheless, when they finally did – wow. It was SOOOOO HOT and Dominic was really worth the wait, now if only he finished what he started, it would have been amazing.


Dominic’s secret had me on the edge – because how can this beautiful guy, be that broken? What happened that made him so bitter in life that he wanted feel pain? It was pure torture to watch him walk away, turn his back on Jacey – on something good that had finally come into his life.



Their relationship was one wild rollercoaster ride. It’s HOT, then it’s COLD. It’s amazing, then it’s HEARTBREAKING. I was wondering what would it take for Dominic to open up? To listen to reason? To give himself a chance for happiness? Six years is long enough for him to suffer. It was time for him to be happy – but first, he needed to face his demons, his past, and the truth. He needed to open up to Jacey, let her in and allow her to love him.


These are two people who clearly are broken, deserve so much more than what life offers them, and is finally getting a chance of having their HEA together – now if they can only settle their baggage, and get over their past before they break each other. Just like the first one, Courtney Cole, had me hooked from the first page, until I finally reach the end. This book is a must read.  


The twist in the end had my hairs in my arms rising. I didn’t see it coming, it was a bit creepy, but I admit, it was perfect. Fate sometimes works mysteriously.

EXCERPT-


Are you feeling warm yet?”
I watch his lips as he speaks the words, husky and low.   His lips are full, yet manly and suddenly I ache to lean over and press mine to his, to touch them in any way that I can. 
But I don’t. 
Because I’m not a girl who gets used.  Not anymore. 
 “No, not at all.”
But Dominic takes that as a challenge.  He’s not used to hearing the word no and he’s not about to start now.  I see that in his dark eyes a scant moment before he dips his head and consumes my mouth.
I say consume, instead of kiss, because that’s what he does.
He consumes me.
His lips are fiery and hot and he kisses me with a fierceness that touches a secret part of me; moist, hot, firm, sexy.  I want to inhale him, to suck him down.  I vaguely feel his hands on my back, his warmth emanating through my clothes, his hardness pushing into my softness.
I’m breathless when he pulls away. 
“What about now?”
For the life of me, I’m afraid to answer that.  Instead, I pull away, just a bit, just enough that there is some space between us, but I can still absorb his warmth.   As my teeth chatter, both from the cold and from the suddden absence of his lips, I answer.
“I’m good.”
He laughs, a husky, low, naughty sound. 
“Oh, I’m sure of that.”
And just like that, I’m drawn back in… in toward his sexy smile, his arrogant gaze and his knowing smirk.  He’s bad for me.  Very bad for me.   I’ve got to remember that. 
He will decimate you, I tell myself.
But my problem is, every time I look into his dark eyes and see the mysterious things that lurk there, I forget that.   I forget everything that is supposed to matter.
