Dominic, Dominic, Dominic. Dominic Kinkaide isn't just a bad boy... no... he's THE bad boy. Ruler of all bad boys in the land of bad-onia. I mean, his last name includes the word "kink," and I don't think that's just a coincidence. I didn't find this little novella until after I had already read Before We Fall, but I still wanted to read Dom's introduction. I'm glad it worked out that way because if you know Dominic's true story, then this book will just make your heart hurt for the real Dominic Kinkaide as you read the specifics about the dark path that this broken boy chooses to take. Dominic is not for everyone. He is not warm and snuggly -- he makes a porcupine seem cuddly by comparison. I don't like his lifestyle or most of the people he surrounds himself with or the fact that they enable him. But I do like Dominic -- the Dominic that is buried deep inside this tragic impostor. You won't get the full story until Before We Fall, but you will get to see just how far this character has fallen. Take heed of the note above. This is not for youngsters. This book gets graphic, and Dom is one dirty bird. But when you see just how low Dom sinks, it makes his climb to absolution that much sweeter.
My Rating: ★★★ 1/2
