All of Court’s Men: Gabriel Vincent

Welcome to week six of All of Court's Men! This week we are spotlighting Gabriel Vincent from Cole's Contemporary Romance series, Beautifully Broken!

This is the series that I've been waiting to talk about! I am crazy, stupid about these books... I almost can't! It's, without a doubt, one of my top favorites (ever!) that sits high up there on the pedestal, no joke. It's one of those series that I get super protective of and when I hear bad things about 'em, my heart breaks a little. There are only about 4-5 series that make me all psycho like that. Only 4-5, promise. ;p

Without further ado, let's talk about our bad-ass hero, Gabriel Vincent!

About the book:

Title: If You Leave (Beautifully Broken, #2)
Author: Courtney Cole
Publisher: Forever
Release date: August 6, 2013

"In If You Leave, we continue the wild ride Courtney Cole started us on in If You Stay. This raw story of heartbreak and hope solidifies Cole's standing as a rising star in hot contemporary romance."—New York Times Bestselling author of Down to You, M. Leighton

"Another raw, gritty masterpiece with a sexy-as-hell Army Ranger to swoon over."—K.A. Tucker, author of Ten Tiny Breaths

Ex-Army Ranger Gabriel Vincent is a badass hero. Or he used to be. Home from Afghanistan, Gabe can't stop thinking about that one horrible night on the battlefield, a night that changed his life forever. He knows he's messed up, but with the help of a little beer and a lot more women, he's keeping it together. Until he meets Madison Hill.

Madison is happily single-or so she thinks. After the tragic death of her parents, she took on the responsibility of running the family restaurant, and that's just about all she has time to worry about. Until she meets Gabriel Vincent.

Though they don't realize it at first, Gabe and Maddy will soon develop a weakness: each other. But Gabe has a secret, a hidden monster that he's afraid Maddy could never overcome. And Maddy is dealing with issues she fears Gabe won't understand. They quickly realize they need each other to be whole, but they have demons to fight-and the problem with demons is that they never die quietly. Can they find a way to heal the past . . . before they lose each other?

Excerpt from If You Leave:

It’s chilly outside, but he’s not wearing a jacket, only a snug black t-shirt and a pair of perfectly fitting jeans. There isn’t a trace of fat on him. He’s lean and muscled, with short darkish hair. From the side, his features are chiseled and from what I can tell, he’s got just the barest hint of stubble along his strong jaw. That’s an instant turn on for me. It seems so rugged.

And this guy… he definitely seems rugged. Everything about him screams strength and power. That’s an instant turn on for me, too. I decide that this is what intrigues me. He’s like power personified. He holds himself with purpose.

As I watch, he lights up a cigarette and takes a drag, releasing the smoke out slowly into the night. His lips are full and masculine and he’s got a cleft in his chin. He’s undeniably sexy. Normally, I would stay far away from someone like him, someone sinfully sexy but so… forceful. A guy like that is trouble. That’s for sure.

But I didn’t come to the club tonight to run away.

I came here to hook up. To blow off my responsibilities and be reckless for a night. To act my age. To be someone I’m not.

I eye the guy again.

Normally, I would run away from him.

But maybe…just tonight…I won’t.

I don’t have to be me tonight. I can be anyone I want to be because he’ll never see me again.

Just for tonight.

I hesitate, trying to decide what to do.

Then, almost as though my feet have a mind of their own, I take a step toward him. And then another.

This book was crazy intense but so legit and real. Gabe's story had all my feels pouring outta me in tears! I loved it so much! Because I'm totes a book/music person, the number one song (the only song, haha) on my playlist was Hero by Enrique Iglesias. It's scarily perfect! If you've yet to read this book, definitely make sure this song is on the loop when you do! It will make your reading experience a million times better!
