Creed: Fallen Angel's MC - Erin Trejo
  Free copy for an honest review.
One accident that changes the whole course of two lives, yet somehow they both end up in a similar life. Jada's is not good or healthy, it's violent, abusive and almost deadly. Creed is just surviving, not really caring if he lives or dies. He loves the MC lifestyle but at the same time it is just a living, the women he loves is missing and he doesn't ever expect to see her again. Quite by chance they do meet again, circumstances still not in their favour they go their separate ways again. You have the bikers, guns, violence, drugs and rivalry that comes with MC clubs/gangs. You also have this deep seated love that the two main characters have for each other, a love that started way back when they were kids and has never dimmed or died. Two clubs that have a history and a secret link that is a cause for hatred and fighting, becomes even more heated with the added history and relationship of Creed and Jada. I love stories like this that hook me in and keep me on the edge of my seat, not able to read it fast enough but at the same time not wanting it to finish. I haven't looked but I'm hoping this author has written more in this series.

Suspenseful page-turner
Fallen Halos: Watchtower 1 (Cursed Angel Collection) - Erin Hayes,Rebecca Hamilton,Cursed Angel,Charmed Legacy

I've never really quite know what to expect from dual authors. And this book was no exception. I was drawn in from the very first chapter and held in complete astonishment as the story progressed. This is a love story. And it's not just love between man and woman but love for companions. This is one of those books where all hope seems lost, every good character has their back up against a proverbial wall. You'll be biting your nails to the quick just in suspense alone, to see how it all goes down.

The Fallen Angel
The Fallen Angel - Daniel Silva

The Fallen Angel is a mid-series entry (#12) in Daniel Silva’s long-running series about Israeli spy and art restorer Gabriel Allon. At the beginning of The Fallen Angel, Gabriel is retired from the intrigue business and at the Vatican to restore a painting by Caravaggio. He is drawn into an investigation of the death of a female curator who was investigating malfeasance in the Vatican collection by his friend and occasional ally, private secretary to his Holiness Pope Paul VII, Monsignor Luigi Donati. Of course, Donati knows more than he initially reveals and soon Gabriel is off to the Italian countryside followed by St. Moritz to investigate. It being a Gabriel Allon story, there can’t be just one villain, just one plot, and soon enough the story circles back to events in Israel and the clock is ticking as Gabriel races to save the world in the nick of time.

 

Read by iconic narrator George Guidall, The Fallen Angel, like many thrillers made an excellent audiobook. While The Fallen Angel can stand alone, I would have benefitted from a more recent memory of the previous volume in the series (which I somehow appear to have missed). Gabriel has been aging in real time and would be in his late 50s at the time of The Fallen Angel. He is still, barely, young enough for the high jinx to be plausible. While Daniel Silva continues to turn out one well researched Gabriel story a year (#17 was published earlier in July 2017), the stories since The Fallen Angel just haven’t been quite as compelling.

ARC Review: Fallen Angel by Eden Winters
Fallen Angel (The Angel of 13th Street Book 2) - Eden Winters

In this sequel to The Angel Of 13th Street, we catch up with Noah and Jeremy shortly after the ending of the first book.

Jeremy is trying to help a meth addict off the streets, Noah is struggling with memories and haunted still by whom he couldn't save while he's trying to save another teenager, and Doc is making plans to turn the mission over to Noah, formalize it more, and get more volunteers.

And Jeremy is about to graduate from high school with plans to attend college on a scholarship, which will likely take him away from Noah.

In this book, Noah stumbles hard and nearly falls, and it's the Angel himself who needs saving this time around. Stuck in the memories from his former life on the streets, Noah lets his anger and his grief nearly consume him, full of doubt that he's doing any good at all, because he couldn't save Billy, not realizing that he's approaching an emotional meltdown.

This book is primarily Noah's story, whereas the first one was primarily about Jeremy finding his feet. We see flashback after flashback to Noah's life with Billy, his time as a rentboy, a drug addict, and the fall that nearly killed him but ended up saving him. We watch Noah fight his demons, and struggle with depression and hopelessness when he can't save Chip from the clutches of his pimp.

Eden Winters doesn't mince words here, and there's no fluff inside either. This is raw and gritty, showing the seedy underbelly of society that most of us don't want to see.

But there's love and hope too, and there are successes, such as Lark, who finds the strength to leave Tina behind and pull himself out of the mess his life has become.

We also get a full glimpse into Noah's and Jeremy's domesticity, and it was lovely to see Jeremy maturity level increase even more. I really enjoyed seeing him be so patient with Noah, not pushing, but also not allowing Noah to completely self-destruct either. I think that Noah's burned out emotionally, and he's not yet fully realized that Jeremy is an equal partner in the relationship, and not just the kid he saved and who's now running the Tub Of Suds next to the bar. The fact that Noah keeps things to himself and, even worse, keeps things from Jeremy is super not cool, but also understandable within Noah's frame of mind.

There are some intimate scenes, and these further the plot, showcasing how Jeremy catches Noah when he stumbles, which really drives home the point how much Jeremy has grown into himself.

Again, this is not a fluffy book, but it feels real, it's superbly crafted, it has fully fleshed out, three-dimensional characters, and the author is never afraid to call a spade a spade. I, for one, appreciate that.

I look forward to Lark's story.

Creed: Fallen Angel's MC

New to me author...

If you enjoy MC books then this one may be right your alley. It is a strong story one that I enjoyed very much I actually devoured it in a few hours.
Creed is a little twisted and now even more so after something happens after a football game at school.

Jada is the girl who has always had his heart but she is his best friends sister. Although Jada wants him just as much.

These two are brought together by emotions and turn apart by emotions only to be brought together again with action, love, emotion and a whole lot of HOT!
Add in a few more bikers, some brawls, some deaths, and a return of a best friend for Jada. I also really liked Tank which is a buddy of Creeds.

The story is well written, the characters I enjoyed however the book needs proofing as there are many missing words. But overall I would suggest it.
