Release Day/Review: Nocte by Courtney Cole

Nocte RDL Banner



My name is Calla Price. I’m eighteen years old, and I’m one half of a whole.
My other half– my twin brother, my Finn– is crazy.

I love him. More than life, more than anything. And even though I’m terrified he’ll suck me down with him, no one can save him but me.

I’m doing all I can to stay afloat in a sea of insanity, but I’m drowning more and more each day. So I reach out for a lifeline.

Dare DuBray.

He’s my savior and my anti-Christ. His arms are where I feel safe, where I’m afraid, where I belong, where I’m lost. He will heal me, break me, love me and hate me.
He has the power to destroy me.

Maybe that’s ok. Because I can’t seem to save Finn and love Dare without everyone getting hurt.

Why? Because of a secret.

A secret I’m so busy trying to figure out, that I never see it coming.

You won’t either.

Glancing up, I suck my breath in when I find dark eyes connected to mine, eyes so dark they’re almost black, and the energy in them is enough to freeze me in place. 

A boy is attached to the dark gaze. 

A man. 

He’s probably no more than twenty or twenty-one, but everything about him screams man.  There’s no boy in him.  That part of him is very clearly gone.  I see it in his eyes, in the way he holds himself, in the perceptive way he takes in his surroundings, then stares at me with singular focus, like we’re somehow connected by a tether.  He’s got a million contradictions in his eyes….aloofness, warmth, mystery, charm, and something else I can’t define.

He’s muscular, tall, and wearing a tattered black sweatshirt that says Irony is lost on you in orange letters.  His dark jeans are belted with black leather, and a silver band encircles his middle finger.

Dark hair tumbles into his face and a hand with long fingers impatiently brushes it back, all the while his eyes are still connected with mine.  His jaw is strong and masculine, with the barest hint of stubble.

His gaze is still connected to mine, like a livewire, or a lightning bolt.  I can feel the charge of it racing along my skin, like a million tiny fingers, flushing my cheeks.  My lungs flutter and I swallow hard. 

And then, he smiles at me. 

At me. 

Because I don’t know him and he doesn’t know better. 


This book was a physiological masterpiece that threw me for a curve ball I could have never anticipated! I was just strolling along reading the book and then the ending, good Lord the ending! I had to re-read it several times and I sat there saying, “What? No, oh my God, oh my God!” until my boyfriend told me to shut up. Not to mention an epically huge cliff hanger, just a warning because I am dying inside waiting for book 2 and what the h*ll will happen! Oh but no worries it comes out in February! Are you kidding me, you toy with my mind and I felt like it was going to implode then you just drop me and say we will reconvene in February! I will be dying a slow book addiction death until then!

Seriously, you need this book! It is about a girl named Cali and her Schizophrenic brother Finn. You follow there journey of Cali trying to take care of Finn and meeting a boy named Dare…cue swooning and fanning yourself! I really can’t even describe the book, just I can’t you don’t understand. This is the type of book I live for, I sit and wait for books that will leave me with a complete mind-f*ck and Courtney Cole has delivered ten fold! Its amazing, well-developed, shred your brain to Swiss cheese book! I am so thankful and grateful that Courtney was so brave and took a huge risk in publishing this! So you need to go take a risk and buy it…NOW!
