Angel Fallen ~ Jennifer Leighton

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
3.5-4 Naughty Angel stars

Book description:
When Garon gets the news he’s about to be transferred to a new assignment, his entire world comes crashing down around him, for as a guardian angel, a new charge can only mean one thing.

His Jessie, the girl he’s watched over from the moment of her birth, the human he’d been created to protect, is about to die.

Can he stand by and let her be destroyed? Or will he dare to do the unthinkable.

Dare to fall....

Jessica Martin doesn’t believe in happily ever after. Prince Charming is just a lie bought by starry-eyed women, and she’s far from that anymore.

No man has ever measured up to the one who lives in her imagination. With no real family, just temporary ones that came and went, she’s had few constants in her life, but the make-believe friend from her childhood has always been there for her. Always.

Too bad George isn’t real.

So when a mysterious man rescues her from danger, she can’t help but be suspicious. Her Good Samaritan is blond-haired, blue-eyed, and drop dead gorgeous, the complete embodiment of her perfect man, but he’s more than what he seems. The strange familiarity in his eyes, his touch…it shouldn’t be there.

What is he hiding?


This was just the quick, hot read that i needed!
Always a sucker for the Angel/Fallen Angel storyline, I was excited to read this take on the classic theme.

I really loved how devoted Goran/George is to Jessie. She is literally his entire world, and when he discovers that she is about to die, he sacrifices himself in order to save her. In the process, he becomes "human" and is given the chance to be with his Jessie for real.

This might sound like a sweet little fairy tale, and while it has some sweet, romantic aspects to the story....this is definitely first and foremost an erotic tale. And the author does a good job of bringing the heat. The chemistry is great and i could feel the attraction between these two. To be honest, i have never been a fan of the whole insta-love thing, and I would have preferred a bit more of a buildup in their relationship before the mind blowing sex starts filling the pages...but, i do appreciate how much of George & Jessie's story we get in a short novel.

Considering this is a debut novel, I am very impressed by the author's writing ability. It definitely doesn't read like a debut...everything flows together very well, and she paints a very vivid picture with her words....be it with Goran's struggle to make the leap from Angel to human, or with the sex scenes that, did i mention?... are H O T.  I'm looking forward to the next chapter in Jennifer Leighton's career.

**This book was offered to me by the author, in exchange for an honest review.**
