Hey lovely readers!
Here’s a book review for you. One of my all time favorite books that I’ve never had a chance to review.
“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 parents’ 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 parents 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.”
So like I said, I’ve read this book before, many times in fact! But that was before I started my blog, so I’ve decided to actually do a review! I absolutely adore this book, I mean clearly haha. It’s one of those romance books that’s part of a series, but is also a stand-alone. Basically my favorite kind. This one focuses on Dom and Jacey and though it does mention characters from the previous two books, you don’t need to read the other two.
I think it’s my favorite of the series, because it has this feeling of fate about it. I won’t tell you why, because that would give too much away. But I really love it when characters seem meant to be, as cheesy as that may sound haha. I like that both Dom and Jacey have their own sets of problems. They’re real people, who bad shit has happened too, and they’re trying to work through it. Well, at least Jacey is at first 😉 There’s is some pretty heavy stuff in this book relating to abortion and suicide. But I think it adds such depth and emotion to the story, these are real issues that people face everyday and I applaud the author for tackling them.
Plus you guys know how much I love my smut haha and this book is filled with some of the best. Dom is harsh and angry, but watching him fall for Jacey is kind of amazing. And watching Jacey learn to trust again, just makes me so happy. This book definitely moves fast, it’s not insta-love, but it’s fast. I personally felt that made sense for these two characters, but if that’s not your thing I totally get that. Regardless, if you’re a fan of romance you should definitely give this author a read!
Thanks for reading guys! Talk to you soon! ❤ Adrianna
