Sometimes before we fall . . . we fly.
One dark moment was all it took to turn twenty-four-year-old Dominic Kinkaide's world black. On the night of his high school graduation, a single incident changed him forever, and he became a hardened man-famous in the eyes of the world, but tortured inside. Now all he cares about is losing himself in the roles that he plays.

At twenty-three years 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 an absence of moments. She tries to find acceptance in the arms of men to fill the void-a plan that has worked just fine for her, until she meets Dominic.

When jaded Dominic and strong-willed Jacey are thrown together, the combination of his secrets and her issues turns their attraction into the perfect storm. It could change their lives for good-if it doesn't tear them both apart . . .

I was a little apprehensive reading this story. The preview stated that Dominic was a wounded sole and I thought that this was going to be a very hackneyed story line, poor poor hurt man. Blah, blah, blah. Well, let me tell you, this one certainly caught me off guard. It was a fresh story line. Sure Dominic was a little tortured but for a man to avoid actual intercourse for the last six years because of his broken heart. That was new. That was very real and still very raw. Dominic was such a powerful character for me to read. He touched me very deeply.He was such a playboy the way he went through woman after woman, satisfying them sexually in all sorts of yummy deviant ways without actually having straight sex. It was riveting, it was amazing. He was such a playboy. I loved him. He was so mean to some of these girls, only using them for one thing, never letting anyone close to him. I hated him.
Emma, herself had a twisted background and she was trying to get her life back on the right track. She should probably stay away from the bad playboy types.She needs a mature realiable guy, kind of like her bestest friend Brand, but of course all the girls are so attracted to the deep dark characters.
A chance encounter finds these two sharing some community service hours helping out underprivelaged teenagers and it was really neat to see them set off sparks on one another.
Emma is such a toughy, knows karate, sleeps with a gun under her pillow and yet she is so kind to these boys.
Dominic's soft side comes out as he takes Emma for a picnic in the grand canyon, takes her on a boat ride site seeing, his funky side comes out as he makes her wear a vibrator on the plane and sneaks her into the closet for a little one on one time.
It was great to see these two try to have a relationship together. I was routing for them the whole way, obstacle after obstacle kept getting in the way. There was twist after twist, issue after issue, surprise after surprise. I was anxiously turning page after page to find out if anything get resolved. I needed to know what Dominic was hiding, what was it that got him so wounded. Did Emma ever have a chance of tearing down his walls, or would it prove too much for her and would she hang in there.
This made me a huge fan of this author and I am definately going to read more by her. I recommend this story to all romance lovers. It was quite refreshing. I loved it!! 5/5 for
