UNTIL WE FLY Synopsis:
Ex-Army Ranger, Brand Killien, has always been good.
A good friend, a good soldier, a good everything. .
The problem is, good hasn’t gotten him anything but a crushed heart.
So after licking his wounds, he decides to move on. And moving on doesn’t include being good anymore.
Bad sounds so much better.
Jaded and detached, Brand is determined to never open himself up to anyone again. It’s not worth the pain. Instead, he becomes closed, hardened, aloof.
But then he’s called back home for a family emergency… a family that he is estranged from. A family that he put out of his mind a long time ago for very good reasons…reasons that involve secrets and pain. Reasons he tried hard to forget.
But home is where the heart is, and it just might be where Brand finds his again.
Why? Because home is where Nora Greene is. A fiery, red-headed spitfire, Nora is a thing from his past. A beautiful, feisty thing. When Brand left, she was away at boarding school.
But she’s back now.
And she wants Brand, scars and all.
Courtney Cole can do no wrong in my eyes. Each and every one of her books are pictures of perfection. She somehow manages to create stories full of emotion that combine with angst, drama, amazing plots, and sexy scenes that cause you to fall in love with her characters over and over again. Until We Fly is no exception. I knew from page one that this book was going to be absolutely amazing . This is Brand and Nora’s story and it is absolute bliss. I loved the sweet gentle side of Brand but when his heart is broken and he decides to embrace his bad side. Watch out! Bad Brand will make you love him even more. Bad Brand is even sexier. But Brand is living with a load off emotional pain that has caused him to hide his heart behind a wall so that he doesn’t get hurt again. When Brand meets Nora that carefully constructed wall comes crashing down. And Brand finds himself putting his vulnerable heart at risk again. Brand and Nora could very well be my favorite two characters from this series and that is saying a lot. There is something about the two of them that made me, the reader, feel very protective of this pair. Nora is fire and sparks. She is lively, strong, opinionated and wants Brand. She is exactly what Brand needs to heal. When unfortunate circumstances cause their paths to meet again after a long absence they find themselves unable to ignore the white hot attraction between them. Being a Courtney Cole book, of course there is going to be lots of drama and angst, but that makes getting to the end so much more worth it. Until We Fly broke my heart, made me laugh, made me cry, made me fall in love and made me never want this book to end. Courtney is a poet with the written word and this book is a prime example of that.
A big old 5 out of 5 stars.
