Bond with Me (Fallen #1)
The story felt like a diluted version of JR Ward's Fallen Angel series, but without the fun male banter and one liners. "Shitkickers" and "For fuck's sake" are truly JR Ward's signature phrases, but were used frequently in the story. The overuse of the word "hell" at the beginning of every other sent ...more

A Dark and Edgy Read
They were set up. Since creation, the Dominion served as faithful warrior angels defending the throne, but that loyalty earned them little when the archangel Michael accused them of heinous crimes and banished them from the heavens. Stripped of their wings and souls, robbed of their emotions, they fell. Cursed by Michael's fury, they became Goblins - half man, half beast - dependent on the souls of humanity for sustenance. They were promised a chance at redempt ...more

They are promised if they find their soul mates and learn to love that they may return. Three thousand years later not one of them has found their soul mate and no one believes that promi ...more
I really liked this a lot. Very Anne Rice meets Nalini Singh. A group of angels had been cast out of heaven with their wings removed and a beast inside of them that feeds on souls. The only chance at redemption is to find their soulmate and bond. Brends can't get Miscka out of his head. She hates anything paranormal but had a cousin missing that she thinks is with one of the fallen. Meanwhile a rogue fallen is killing random women and Mischka and her cousin are on the list. Brends convinces Mis ...more
The book simply didn't hook me in. I started reading and then stopped. Some time later I started from the beginning again and was able to keep going. I liked the story about the Fallen, but I had a hard time liking the main characters.
Mischka and Brends were ok, but it seemed to me that she was really quick to change her feelings and develop this deep love for him. I think Dathan and Pell's r ...more
An observation by no means complaint, different writing style? A little disjointed things happen and you have to go back and read to see if you missed something even in the sex scenes. I must say I'm not all about those scenes but when in one position and things happening that don't make sense kinda messes up flow of story......but I shall continue. Still reading bit more observations what's with the repeated reference with skin being dark and/or darkening, don't get it. And you hav ...more
The story is about Fallen Angels, in which Brends is a smoking hot angel just looking to taste the flavor. Mischka is looking for her family member that she believes made a grave mistake.
As the story unfolds, we learn how the angels were cast out of the heavens, we learned there is a killer on the loose and we learn just how seductive these angels can be. ...more
This one was a big disappointment for me. The mythology of the fallen could have been interesting but I felt that it wasn't fleshed out very well. The action, actually just the writing in general, felt disjointed and it was not a very smooth reading experience. I had hopes for the inner strength of the heroine but said strength wasn't consistent and the relationship as a whole was pretty underdeveloped and unbelievable. I never felt any actual emotion developing, just the standard lus ...more
I can't decide.. :P It was to many pov's for me. If it had only been Brends and Mischka's pov the book would have been
so much better! The story was good, and i did like the characters. The book was worth the time and who doesn't like
reading about angels/fallen angels?! :D
