Book review of Until We Fly (Beautifully Broken #4) by Courtney Cole

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.

Guys, I am so happy right now! I have found an awesome new author and a new series to read!!! REJOICE! ::happy dance::

I freaking loved this book. It was such an amazing read! Before I get started on the review, however, I do want to let you guys know that there is some dark and sensitive material in the plot that might not be everyone's cup of tea. If you decide to read this please know that going in. Also, this is book 4 in the series. Carry on.

As I mentioned before, this book is dark and it is INTENSE, ladies and gents. But Courtney has a way of making the reader truly connect to the characters and the journey they are going on. 

The characters are so well rounded and genuine. Nora and Brand have both gone through so much. I felt so sad for Nora. The secrets that she's had to bear were so harsh and profound. I really felt for her. But even though she's had to deal with horrible situations, she's still strong. I loved this heroine.

And Brand. BRAND!!!!! He's such a kind and loving character. I fell in love with him the minute we met him and then when he "met" Nora I was a gonner. GAH!

Their love story is captivating and real and sweet and raw. This was definitely a page turner that I cannot wait to revisit. Warning: if you're a crier, you will cry lol. You will also swoon. And you'll also enjoy some steamy scenes... you're welcome. I just loved everything about this book!!!!!

I'm a new fan of this amazing author! I will be starting this series from the beginning now. Courtney, I can't wait to read more by you! I have included a little about her below so you can all get to know her.

Courtney Cole is a novelist who would eat mythology for breakfast if she could. 

She has a degree in Business, but has since discovered that corporate America is not nearly as fun to live in as fictional worlds. 

Every Last Kiss is her debut novel and she followed it with the rest of The Bloodstone Saga (Every Last Kiss, Fated, With My Last Breath and My Tattered Bonds). 

Courtney lives in quiet suburbia, close to Lake Michigan, with her real-life Prince Charming, her ornery kids (there is a small chance that they get their orneriness from their mother) and a small domestic zoo.
