For Love of an Angel by Rosalie Lario

In a world where angels rule over humans, twelve outcasts dare to defy expectation, warring with their angel brethren to prevent the extinction of humankind.

They are The Fallen...

Michael is one of twelve angels who have been outcast due to their determination to protect humans. In order to preserve his immortality and strength, he must find a mate with angel blood. Eva Smyth has never believed the propaganda spouted by the Consortium-the elite system of guards put into place once angels took over reign of Earth-but she never expected to learn the angels plan to eradicate all of humankind, or that she herself is part angel. Joining Michael means living a life on the run, at war against the angels and hunted by the Consortium. Eva must decide whether to risk it all...for love of an angel.
My Review:
When I saw that this book was only .99 cents and that it was about angels, I decided to purchase it because I've been on an angel kick lately. This book is worth way more than I paid for it!

Angels and fallen angels have become popular recently, but this book was a lot different than any other angel story I have ever read. First off, the angels are the bad guys in this novella with the fallen angels as the good guys. That's pretty original by itself! But it gets better! The angels now reside on Earth because their realm has been destroyed. They've chosen where all the humans work and live, and have curfews. Eventually, we discover that the angels are plotting to destroy human kind after they use the humans to do things like build their towers. We also discover that angels need to have sex with other full or half angels in order to keep their immortality.

Eva, the main female character, is stuck working in a coffee shop. She has a nice apartment, but has to live next door to her annoying ex boyfriend. She wishes for something more and that's exactly what she gets. Enter fallen angel Michael. He's beyond gorgeous and has a pair of stunning black wings. He comes to Eva in the middle of the night calling her his beloved.

I really liked both of the characters. They had chemistry, and their relationship didn't seem rushed even though For Love of an Angel is a novella. There are a few sexy scenes and several swoon worthy ones. Their is also humor peppered throughout the story, which I really enjoyed. The ending is sweet and sets up perfectly for the next book.

It's a very original story that I enjoyed a lot. The only thing is that I wish it would have been longer. I'll be waiting for the second in the series, Angel's Desire to come out and might even pick up her book Blood of the Demon because it sounds really good.
If you like angels/fallen angels and are looking for something different and steamy, you should definitely check this one out!

This novella does have a few sex scenes, so I would recommend it for 18+!
One of my favorite quotes:
"Angel, huh? I knew their had to be some reason I couldn't resist him. The man was like sex on a stick."
Happy Reading!
