Falling Angels Saga Book Tour ~ Reviews for all 3 books, and Excerpts

Welcome to my stop on the Falling Angels Saga Brought to you by Bewitching Book Tours. I have a review for each book here, the blurbs, and a book trailer. I also have some excerpts at the bottom for all 3 books to check out. 

Boyfriend From Hell (Falling Angels #1)
Fifteen year-old Megan Barnett and her single mom, Suze, have a special relationship—they are friends, close friends, who do almost everything together. 
“But come on, guys, she’s my mother… Can I really tell her that while we’re snuggled up on the sofa watching Spider Man Three, I’m secretly undressing James Franco with my eyes? Of course not…” 
The special bond takes a turn for the worse when Suze decides to start dating again. She hasn’t had a man in her life since Megan’s father left ten years ago. 
Enter two mysterious young men, Megan’s new classmate, sinfully attractive bad boy, Guy Matson, and the dangerously handsome art dealer, Armando. Before long Megan and Suze both wind up in steamy relationships. 
But neither of the handsome pair is quite what he seems. In fact, one of them is Satan, with his sights set on a new bride. Megan has precious little time to figure out how to stop him. If she doesn’t, either Megan or Suze are quite literally going to HELL

Boyfriend from Hell Review

I enjoyed Boyfriend from Hell for the most part, I didn’t really connect with Megan at all, she was very immature in the beginning. She just didn’t ever seem to be happy for anyone else, like when her best friends Matt and Erin started to date, and when her mom wanted to date, and then started to. Well, I guess I should not have expected anything else, as she is 15, and I usually do not connect well with the girls at that age. To me, that’s too young to be having serious boyfriends or being in love for that matter.

Anyway, she did grow up through the book, and liked that she befriended a girl who was unpopular because she smelled like a dog. This girl ends up being a very good friend.  But Megan was justified in some of the freaking out she did. But I wont spoil it and tell you what.

I was not really thrilled with the way it ended and sure was smacked with a huge twist that I did not see coming at all. Talk about a major blindside! Whew, that twist was something!
Guy I had some trouble figuring out at first. But I actually could see through his bad boy act, so I didn’t dislike him. I knew from the title and bits of the next books I accidently read some first. that he is a good guy. Will leave that alone for this book. I could see the potential for sure.

I do recommend this book to be read before the others. Though I hear the others do a great job of summarizing this book.
I think this was a great start to a great series that will grow with each one.

5 out of 5 stars for me.

Earth Angel (Falling Angels #2)
Just because Megan Barnett recently defeated Satan, has a fantastic new best friend, and has won the love of deliciously handsome, Guy Matson, doesn’t mean her troubles are over. Far from it. For Megan doesn’t realize it, but in her possession is a powerful weapon, a weapon sought after by both angels and demons and everything in between. They will do ANYTHING to get it.
In E. Van Lowe’s humorous, romantic and thrilling sequel to Boyfriend From Hell, Megan winds up in a gripping life or death battle to save herself, the boy she loves, and all of mankind from unthinkable evil.

Earth Angel Review

This book was by far superior to the first. Megan had grown a lot through the first book, but even more here. We learn that Megan is special, it’s the only reason why demons are chasing her and what she has, but she doesn’t really know why for sure.  She just wants to spend time with her super hot angel boyfriend, who is actually a fallen angel who has clipped his wings to be on Earth with her. The angel council won’t back off and leave Guy and Megan alone. They try all they can to split them up. But Guy and Megan love each other too much to allow that to happen. But with the responsibilities bearing down on them, she wonders if the angels will be the end of her only meaningful relationship.

I really did enjoy seeing the character growth in Megan. Makes me sortof feel like a proud mom, as I am a mom too, and just have that feeling. I do feel really bad for her for most of this book because of what is going on with her mom and Erin. It’s all just so unfair!  I just wish more people would trust Megan, I do now, we all need to. I didn't like her at all in the first book and am glad she did the growing up she did. Its nice to witness her progress in the maturing department.

Now Guy in this book was another one I fell in love with, I didn't have much of an opinion of him in book one. I knew he would be important, but not that I would like him. We get to really see into Guy’s head in this book and get a feel for him, which I loved. I wish he would have just been himself the whole time, instead of putting on that bad-boy act. But I guess it actually worked for Megan. I do wish we could have more of Guy in this book, now that I like him so much.
We do get to see some more new characters, Harrison and Rocky, and I liked them ok, but just really liked Guy and wanted more of him.

The surprises we got to discover about Megan were nice, I liked that a lot. It sure has me anxious to read the next book, as I think we will be seeing some really cool things to happen.

I really, really loved the friendship of Megan and Maudrina, it touched my heart and will enjoy seeing them get closer and become really good friends. She really needed it after Erin went crazy (which I hated by the way) I was really hoping to get more insights to the Erin/Matt situation, but unfortunately it was not addressed at all. Maybe in the next. Though I am not at all happy with this new Erin, so really could care less if her and Megan ever make up.

Overall I loved this second installment to the Falling Angels Saga, I loved it more than the first, but it’s like that most of the time for me, as we know the characters by the second book.

I am excited to get into the next book, as this had a killer of an ending, which I didn’t really like. Just hope Megan can fix things in the next book.

5 out of 5 stars, highly recommended.

Heaven Sent (Falling Angels #3)
Readers who devoured Boyfriend From Hell and Earth Angel will be captivated by the third book in the Falling Angels Saga.
As summer break for Glendale Union high begins, heartsick Megan awaits Guy's return while struggling to control her emerging abilities. Love is in the air, but can the new loves in Megan, Maudrina, Suze and Aunt' Jaz's life be trusted? Nothing is what it seems. Meanwhile, the Satanists are set to hatch their most diabolical scheme ever, and if it comes to pass, Satan may finally win out.
Megan has precious little time to unravel the cryptic message hidden in the riddle she received at the end of Earth Angel. If she doesn’t, the life of someone most dear to her will be lost forever, and Megan may yet find herself living in HELL

Heaven Sent review

Wow, man, this series just gets better and better, and this review will be short, as I want to be careful to not give anything away.
I love the progress Megan has made with her developing powers, and I love her cat Amanda, lol. I was on the edge of my seat, and really could not put the book down. Heck, I read both books 2 and this one in the same day (I am a speed reader after all) the books are not really long, but I just could not stop. Intense, emotional, and things will happen that your not going to expect at all. I loved it.
I really recommend reading this series to anyone who like the paranormal romances out there, with a thriller feel to them. These books are some of the better ones I have read. I also love the covers, though I have seen the models (at least the guy) on other books, but they still are amazing.
I still love Guy, and liked how much Megan continued to mature.
5 out of 5 stars for me.
