Book Blurb:
“Angels aren’t supposed to fall in love, especially with each other. But for the record, you were worth it.”
 Grace Tate is a Protection Angel and Vampire Hunter, and she has always followed the rules. But some rules are made to be broken… Until now the fight against evil has been simple, and falling in love was never part of the plan. So what happens when it’s beyond Grace’s control, and when she least expects it she falls for the wrong person?
 All hell breaks loose, that’s what. At Hopetown Valley High, not everything is as it seems, and the one person Grace thought was her enemy becomes her most important ally.
 Blood will be shed, lives will be lost and friendships will be tested. It all comes down to one decision, and when Grace tries to save all those dear to her, she realises not everyone can be—or wants to be—saved.

Hi Michelle, and thanks for having me at your blog today. I’d love to share with you my dream cast for Fall For Me.

Grace – Emma Watson
Grace has short black hair and blue sapphire eyes. She is angelically beautiful with smooth porcelain skin and delicate features. With the right wig and some blue contacts, I think Emma would be perfect to play her character.

Michelle's Choice is 
Lynsdy Fonseca (plays on Nikita Show) Link to Artist is here, she did a great job of getting this just like Lynsdy.

 Josh – Chace Crawford
Josh has messy dark brown hair, strong chiseled features and piercing bright blue eyes. With that face, Chase is an excellent match.

Michelle's Choice: I like this one too, but also could see a young Zac Effron 

Seth – Chad Michael Murray
Seth has olive skin, short blond hair, dark brown eyes that are almost black, and is extremely good looking. He can also come across as a bit creepy. Chad is pretty much exactly how I pictured him.
Link for Image is Here

Michelle's Choice is This guy I found on Pineinterest for Seth, who I love. Link Here

Archer – Chris Hemsworth
Archer has tanned skin, sandy brown hair, and hazel eyes. He’s also a bit of a wise-ass which is why I though Chris would be perfect in the role (and he’s and Aussie). Of course, he’d need contacts to hide those beautiful baby blues. Link is Here ( I found a younger version of Chris for this, as really needs to be younger even than this)

Michelle's pick:
I like Chris for many characters, BUT to me, I didn't see him as Archer, But seen this younger guy better, Will Levy Link Here

Ryan – Garrett Hedlund
Ryan is tanned, has Brown eyes and light brown hair. He’s a genuinely nice guy, and Garrett’s cute boy-next-door looks make him the perfect candidate to play Ryan. I mean, look at that innocent face! 

Michelle's Pick, well, I agree here, I love Garrett, perfect. 

Charlotte – Teresa Palmer
Charlotte has soft, wavy, strawberry gold hair that falls to her shoulders. She is tall, sleek and indescribably gorgeous, with pale, radiant skin and jet black eyes. Teresa has just the right amount of style to pull her character off, and she’s an Aussie, too!
Link Here

Michelle's Choice, I actually agree with this one, she is perfect, would have to make her eyes black, but other than that, just perfect.

Emma – Amber Benson
Emma is what most people would consider pretty, but plain. She has mouse brown hair cut into a bob, hazel eyes that sparkle nicely, and she wears glasses. She doesn’t have much confidence, and after seeing Amber play Tara in Buffy, I knew she was my pick for Emma.

Michelle's Choice: Same, I didn't really form much opinion on her, not a big character to me.

Abby – Hayden Panettiere
Abby has long, straight platinum blonde hair, and bright green eyes. She is slim with an athletic figure that is ‘cheerleader perfect’. Hayden has just the right look to play her role. Link for Image Here

Michelle's Pick: I agree, Abby is shallow person, but pretty, and Hayden could play her well I think

Angelica – Julie Benz
Angelica is perfectly beautiful. Her eyes are a sparkling, washed out blue, and her hair is like golden silk. Julie is a great match for Angelica’s character.

Michelle's Pick:
I agree with this for sure

Annie – Olivia Wilde
Annie is quite an attractive woman with friendly brown eyes, but she wears her chestnut coloured hair pulled tightly back in a bun, making her face appear sharp and angular. Even though Annie is suppose to be one of the good guys she can get a certain devilish look about her, which Olivia pulls off perfectly.

Michelle's Pick, well I love Olivia, but would hate to have to cover her gorgeous eyes, as Annie's are brown, but this could work too.

Cain – Jake Abel
Cain is just plain mean. He has black eyes, and dark hair that hangs like a curtain around his face. Although I imagined Cain to have more chiseled features like Riley (Xavier Samuel) in Twilight, I think Jake just has the right look in his eyes to play the part. Link Here for Image

Michelle's Pick, well as I didn't like Cain, I didnt really picture anyone specific, I barely remember him, Mathew scared me more, lol. SO this is fine.

My Review:

Wow, I just loved this book, It really hooked my in. I got very attached to some of the characters too. I felt for Grace a lot, she was in a difficult situation for sure. I had to get used to the back and forth from point of views, from Grace and from Josh. But I have to say, I didn’t really care for the immaturity if Josh, but I loved Seth. I know he comes off as the bad boy, but I seen past it, I knew there was more to him than it seemed. I really would have enjoyed the story even more than I did if I was able to get into his head. (more than the one small part in the beginning that is, and I didn’t know for sure it was him, but think it was)

Josh, he just got on my nerves, especially after a certain big thing goes down that I will not say, so not to spoil anything.

I liked Archer and Graces twin connection, its interesting how Grace is a Protection Angel, and he is human, but a Vampire hunter, It all made sense after a bit.

Charlotte I like a lot, but I also had that feeling she was more than she seemed, and that she was hiding something.

I didn’t really form any connections to the other characters much, like Emma, or Josh’s best friend, Ryan. 

I will say, at almost the end of this book, I went nuts, if anyone had seen my progress comment at Goodreads, you will know why. I love Seth, and just wanted to cry at something that happens that I didn’t like happening. Can’t say more, but be prepared to cry like I did.

I will leave you with this total swoon moment. Hope you like it (the bold parts are speaking to each other in their mind)

He slipped my free hand into his and turned it over, tracing my palm with his finger. Seth’s touch was gentle and warm.Are you trying to seduce me? I asked.Is it working?A huge smile spread over his face, and before I had time to react he closed the small gap between us. Never in my existence had I felt something as soft, and tender and gentle as that kiss. It surprised me; it was so different to the way Josh kissed me. It was like we fitted perfectly together and the moment his lips touched mine, it felt right. I found myself wanting more. Eagerly, I slid my hand behind his neck and pulled him closer, twisting my fingers into his short blond hair. My mind went blank, and all I knew was his touch. Too soon Seth pulled away and our lips parted. With our foreheads touching I gasped for breath, my heart racing. He gently raised my chin then held out his hand and caught my tear in his palm. I hadn’t even noticed I’d been crying, and we both watched as it turned into a diamond. The tears began to flow faster as I remembered catching Seth’s tear so long ago.“I have one of those, too,” I said, smiling.“You kept it? You know it’s said if you catch an angel’s tear and it turns into a diamond, the one shedding the tear is your true love.”I turned that over in my mind. “You love me?”“I have always loved you, Grace.”“So, this is how angels kiss then? I never knew…”“How good it was?” he asked.Exactly. I felt my smile widen.You have no idea how long I’ve waited for this moment, Grace. How long I’ve waited for you.

I give this book 5 stars out of 5, and highly recommend it. It’s a great captivating story, which kept me up late into the night.

I was provided a copy of this book by the author for my honest review.

Excerpt from Chapter One – Grace’s POV
After I took a few steps, the hairs on the back of my neck stood on end. Archer froze, sensing something, too. I whipped around to face the way we’d come, then flung my right hand in front of my chest and caught a wooden stake before it could pierce through my skin and reach my heart. Its sharp point tore a hole in my black T-shirt, but the cut it made on my skin healed almost instantly. There went another top though; I was getting tired of having to replace my clothes.

Crouching just off the path, shielded by the ferns and undergrowth, was a slender figure dressed in black. Her face was perfectly pale and surrounded by wavy strawberry gold hair. The girl’s black eyes glistened in the moonlight and I gasped at what they revealed. Before I could gather my thoughts and even think about delving into hers, she was gone, another blur through the trees.

“What was that about?” Archer said, letting out a long breath.

“She thought I was a vampire?”

“Obviously, duh!” Archer gestured at the stake in my hand.

I let it drop to my side. “She’s the one those vamps are after. I saw her face in their minds,” I said, staring into the forest.

“If she’s a vamp, and thought you were a vamp, why was she trying to stake you? I didn’t think they killed their own kind.”

“They don’t,” I said, turning to walk home. “It’s like an unwritten law.”

What I didn’t tell Archer was what I’d read in her eyes. She was different, and in all my years I’d never seen a vampire like her.

  1. My second pick for Josh was Zac! Thanks for the tour stop, Michelle.

  2. Awesome, he is a good one too. All yours were great, only one I personally could not see is the one for Grace, she just needed that ethereal beauty for me, and I found that artist pic that captured that unreal beauty of the actress, so thought that would have been great. She has the prettiest cerulean blue eyes in real life, which is how i pictured Grace. ( I watch the show this actress is on, called Nikkita, and she is very pretty) Anyway, loved all the cast you did, thought it would be fun to put my impressions too, as I do that while reading, and without looking at yours first. I made my picks, I didn't really have anyone in mind for a few so was cool with yours, lol. Thanks so much for stopping by, and for writing such a great book. By the way, where did this story take place? In Australia where your at? Or England? I had the slight England vibe for some reason, we don;t have lots of boarding schools in the USA for HS, so figured it was not here for sure.

  3. The setting of Fall For Me is fictional, but it's loosely based on real places in Australia. We do have quite a few boarding schools here, but mine is a fictional one. You can read more in my interview with Roxanne

  4. I have been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It's pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.
