Title: Until We Burn
Author: Courtney Cole
Series: Beautifully Broken #2.5
Release Date: November 21, 2013
Dominic Kinkaide does bad, bad things.
As a 24-year old actor with the world on a string, not many women tell Dominic no. In a life where no doesn’t exist, he stretches the boundaries between what is right, what is wrong and what is downright depraved. Dark and damaged, Dom wants no commitments.
He wants no attachments.
He only wants to disappear into the taboo, into a place where he feels something.
But when the aching need to disappear into the darkness is the only thing he has left, Dominic flounders. In a world that is hollow and sexual, without a guiding light or a reason to breathe, Dominic is lost and broken. He knows he’ll never be fixed. So he makes a decision.
If he’s going to hell, he might as well make it worth it.
UNTIL WE BURN is a novella (book 2.5 in the Beautifully Broken series) intended to introduce Dominic Kinkaide, to enhance the reading experience of BEFORE WE FALL (Book 3)
Until We Burn is a novella that introduces us to Dominic. I read this novella before reading Jacey and Dominic’s story in Before We Fall and I’m really glad I did. Dominic is a confusing and complicated man and Until We Burn gave me some much needed insight into his personality and behavior. Dominic’s view of relationships, his celebrity lifestyle and sexual proclivities are explored in this short story. With the focus solely on Dominic, Until We Burn allows us to enter into Before We Fall with a firm understanding of just how damaged Dominic Kincaide is. This isn’t a pretty story. Until We Burn is Dominic personified. It is blunt, raw, and gritty. This story is the perfect addition to the Beautifully Broken series, adding some necessary depth to a difficult man. This quick read is definitely worth reading.
