I have to say that this was a fabulous first novel from this author. The characters are beyond lovable and even the annoying female, (and we all know I loathe the females) was a little annoying, but it wasn’t to the point where I needed to punch her in the face … it was a lovable annoyance if that makes any sense.
Tyler and Cassie’s story takes us on a journey of discovery, love and a little bit of hot sex to go with it. Their instant attraction is undeniable. Although Cassie tries, even she knows early on that he is the be all and end all and is the hot, sexy man of her dreams. Let’s be honest, I’d totally “do” Tyler in a heartbeat!!! Tyler’s life is a mess and he can’t get out of it, but he sees Cassie and he can’t deny what he feels, so he begrudgingly stays friends with her as long as he can. But he’s absolutely head over heels in love with her. The author makes their little friendship/romance a fun read with some sexy scenes and a whole lot of “smile on your face” moments. Well, for me at least… The side characters are fabulously described and lovable as well. Except for the bitch creature from hell who’s supposed to be like that and is written to perfection. One scene, I won’t give a spoiler, shocked the hell out of me because I expected it to be one thing and I was way off base … but in a good way because it made it a little more unpredictable. I immensely enjoyed the ending and I’m really hoping to hear from this author again with some side character action, and some word on how Cassie and Tyler are doing.
The writing is done well and the grammar and spelling is really good. My only issue which is very hard for me to explain, is when a character speaks and in the same line/sentence, it’s the opposite characters reaction to it and that confused me a little. But hey, that could be just me.
I would absolutely recommend this book and this new author… I’m hoping to see many wonderful things from her.

I finished it, I tried to sleep! But the keyboard was begging me to get my backside out of bed and write this review which I did! Conclusion, this book will make you lose sleep! Fallen is exactly as the star rating says. AMAZEBALLS! What an incredible story teller this author is. I am literally lost for words…pun intended! Book #4 in the Blood & Rose series is without a doubt, a brilliant continuation of this saga that had my eyes not only burning the pages, but also had me biting my nails in a plot that’s fluid and fast moving.
This isn’t a standalone novel. If you haven’t read the series, you really must. The author’s two main characters are like chalk and cheese but that doesn’t stop them from trying to navigate a bumpy hairpin road full of complex twists and turns. Bad boy Zeth is just abso-freakin’-lutley gorgeous! God! This Alfa male has had a rough ride and it’s going to get even rougher. Even though he isn’t a saint and has little or no conscience regarding his wrong-doings, he had previously made a discovery which will scandalize him and force his hand regarding his loyalty to the man who had more or less brought him up. Charlie Holsan, you are a nasty piece of work! I wanted to get in there and lend Doctor Sloane Romera and Zeth a hand when they both had to fight against Charlie’s vengeful mission to bring them both down. Sloane’s path crossed with Zeth’s when she started looking for her missing sister. She finds herself in situations where she’ll be doing things totally contrary to her character, and Zeth will discover that for once in his life, nothing on earth is going to stop him protecting the only woman that has managed to worm her way into his feelings. I really connected to Sloan. She’s beautiful, intelligent and doesn’t hold anything back. However, her common sense is going to be put to the test in some scenes that made me really nervous.
The storyline is a huge intricate puzzle. Pieces start to fit in in what appears to be like watching an action movie! Yes, really! This book is extremely visual and you don’t need much imagination when events take a turn for the worst.
Now then folks, there’s nothing like explicitly described sex in a novel that’s got you glued to the pages. The scenes are quite hair-frizzling and to my way of thinking, a plus and a half. Zeth knows that Slone’s dormant sexual desires are there. All he needs to do is bring them out and oh my god, does he! Towards the end of the book, the suspense is so rife that I was doubting a good ending was in for the offering. What a fan-flipping-tastic finale it was! Nevertheless, there’s no closure as such so we’ll have to wait patiently for the next instalment. To say this book is epic would be an understatement and I couldn’t find fault! Bravisimo Ms Hart! Bravo!
