Until We Fly by Courtney Cole Blog Tour-Review

Until We Fly by Courtney Cole

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.

My Review: 4.5 Stars

This is the first book in the series I have read, and the first book I have read by Courtney Cole, but I was not disappointed. Brand was one of the good guys, even while trying to hold himself away from people, he couldn't hide the fact that he was a good guy at heart. Nora lived her life by doing what was expected of her from her father, whether it was want she wanted to do with her life or not. When she meets Brand again, she decides that she is going to do something for herself before dedicating her life to what her father expects of her. 

Nora saw Brand as a good guy when she was younger and meeting him again knows that, at heart, he is still a good guy. Brand's actions speak louder than any words he says. Brand sees Nora as a beautiful person who is completely unhappy in her life. They get together after very unusual circumstances but they bring so much to each other as people. I hate giving spoilers in reviews so I will just say that they help each other with past problems and try to help each other be their best. While reading this book, I knew some of the things that were going to happen before they did, but there were also some twists and turns that I was never expecting. I will say that reading this book produced a few tears (it apparently takes a lot for me to cry since I don't think I have yet had an ugly cry from a book and I read A LOT). Because of reading this book, I will be picking up the other books in this series because I loved the writing and I want to read more by Courtney Cole.
