I love to read books that receive bad reviews just to see if I agree or not. I started this book with an open mind, really didn't like it much because it jumped around alot but i always finish a book just to give it a fair shot, I'm happy to say that by the end I was totally engrossed in finding out what was going to happen. I came online to look for the 2nd book in the series and was bummed to find out it's not out yet. Yes there's alot of in depth story telling in book one but isn't that what a series is suppose to do? Pull you in and get you hooked? Well it did now break out the coffee and set at the typewriter and get that next book out lol Demons, Angels, losers and lovers, bad guys, good guys, tempters and lovers, honesty, deception, romance, hero, come on what's not to love in this story.
The story builds slowly and for many they may feel a book has to grab them from page one to hold their interest, take the time to relax and enjoy this book, by the end you to will be here hunting for book 2. My honest opinion, this author knows how to write a series and i for one will gladly add her to my favorite authors to watch.
This story was not what I expected, but in a good way. I have read plenty of books with Angels and Demons and this one wasn't same as the others. The female character was strong and Alex was wonderful. I highly recommend this book for those looking for a different kind of love story. I can't wait until book two is released!
Five wickedly sexy stars for Fallen! Fallen opens in New York City. Lisa is just like any other woman. She wants to be successful in life, but she also wants to be happy. When the perfect job falls into her lap, it would seem that she has it all: a career that many would covet, good friends, men interested in her, and general happiness. Unbeknownst to Lisa, her job is not all it seems, and neither is her boss, Samuel.
Samuel seems like a great person to work with. He is charismatic, though a bit mysterious, easy going, and fun. Nothing is missing, or so it would seem. The problem is that Samuel is not what he seems. Evil seldom looks evil head on, especially when it is out for your soul, and Samuel wants Lisa’s soul.
Alex is Lisa’s new neighbor. He is kind, fun to be with, and a gorgeous ray of sunshine, but even good guys have things to hide. As Lisa’s relationship with Alex progresses, so does Samuel’s attempts to steal Lisa’s very being, and he is not one easily thrown aside. There are fireworks everywhere when the intentions of Samuel collide with the goodness of Alex. With Lisa in between these two warring beings, anything is possible.
This book was very special to me. I’ve known the author, Julie Morgan, for 26 years. How she’s had all of this in her head for all her life is a mystery to me. I love the characters in this book. Yes, even Samuel, because you can’t have goodness without evil! For me, the most impressive facet of this book is the rich descriptions of Hell, and the angels and demons. Obviously, Ms. Morgan has never been to Hell, but from her descriptions, you might think she’d had firsthand experience. The reading of those scenes is actually stressful. Her grasp on angels and demons is no less impressive. They are strong, beautiful, and at many times, terrifying. That Julie Morgan successfully pulls off a great love story in the midst of this, is nothing short of ingenious in my opinion. It’s a tall order, but man, she comes through. I feel so proud to have watched this story evolve, and I am equally excited about being a part of the next one in the series: Redemption!
