First of all let me just say that I am enjoying the new trend of angel books! I really am! Falling Hard is the story of Gabriel, a hot rocker, who has lived a difficult life and has struggled to get to where he is at today in his life. You know, the hot brooding male, with tats and an attitude, but deep inside so sweet. And his name is so fitting once you realize where the story is going.
He’s lost his family, and basically out of nothing and with the help of a good foster family, he made himself a very successful rock star. However, disaster hit again a year when his then girlfriend died of an overdose and since then he has stayed away from all the partying and drugs with his band mates. Not so typical rock star.
After the last concert of the tour, his life will change drastically. He’s never known really who he was, or more accurately what he was. But his destiny has finally caught up with him. And just when he needs it most, his sense of preservation goes out the window. Yes, unfortunately, he is that female in the horror movies that has no common sense (in a way).
Amelia is an angel, she’s been watching over Gabriel his whole life because of who he is and the time has come to protect him, and prevent him from becoming the vessel by which Lucifer will come back to the world. But by being on Earth she’s weakening… and feeling.
But… is everything she’s always been taught by Archangels’ true? Should she blindly believe them and follow orders? And now, after being on Earth for a while, physically protecting Gabriel and starting to feel, can she deny what her heart is telling her and asking her.
The storyline was really good and the premises of the whole world were very good as well. It was just a little slow at times for me. The chemistry between the hero and heroine was definitely there, and they had some pretty hot and steamy scenes! I am looking forward to see where the stories can go from here.
