Okay, so I was lucky enough to be chosen as one of Michelle's viral bloggers for her upcoming book Angel With Attitude. I got to read it several weeks before its release... which is great!

Valerie Grace has fallen from Heaven and she doesn't know why. She finds herself stuck as a human and working as a maid in a motel. She's trying to do good deeds along the way, hoping to find her way back into Heaven - where life is wonderful and safe. However, there's a Tempter Demon called Nathaniel who sets

I've enjoyed Michelle Rowan's "Bitten & Smitten" series, so I thought I'd check out "Angel with Attitude". I enjoyed her take on the Fallen Angels theme which seems to be so popular now in the YA genre. Of course, this is NOT a YA novel.

This one has poor Valerie Grace having been kicked out of Heaven and landing naked in a Killer Shark Pool at Marine:and in Niagara Falls. After being given an oversized T-shirt, a wallet is found with some money and her "birth ceritificate" with the address o

I loved this author. The concept of this book sounded great. I just can not keep my attention on it. My dogs spilled Chinese food on it and I have not picked it up since. I do not really wonder what happens in it. It was kind of predictable. I do not need to read it. So sad since I love her other series so much.

Michelle Rowen's reads are always addictive and fabulous. Finished this book basically in one night and it actually had a different ending than I expected. Loved it all!
Paranormal Romance
The heroine is stunned to suddenly find herself kicked out of heaven. There must be some mistake. She doesn't deserve to live as a human, she didn't do anything wrong! Lost, naked and a bit hopeless, she stumbles upon a motel run by an older gentlemen who takes her in and employs her as a maid. A few months go by which no development on how to return to heaven. She keeps regular journals to remember things about being an angel because it seems her mind is slipping, becoming mortal and fragile. L ...more

$12.51 for rat tricks. You would think that a rat doing tricks would draw more of an audience and much more money. This was all the money Reggie the Rat made when his fallen angel friend, Valerie Grace, forced him to do tricks to make some cash so she could get psychic Bob to help her get back into Heaven. Maybe, if Reggie wasn't forced to do tricks and was more willing and talented they could have made bank!

I read this part and busted out laughing. Just like the Immortality Bites Series, "Ange

Falling naked into the killer whale tank at MarineLand is going to ruin anyone's day, but when you've just been banished from heaven with a brief "don't talk to Tempter demons" speech it's even worse. Valerie Grace used to be an angel and after her dramatic banishment has ended up working as a maid at the Paradise Inn. But a random coincidence leads Valerie to realise that there is a stolen key to Heaven which would enable her to go long as she can survive the very tempting Tempter Nat ...more

Just finished reading the book, and I must say that the story is unique (imo). It was my first read of a fantasy romance novel which has angels and demons for characters. The plot is not as predictable as I have thought before reading it. There were hilarious comebacks, sexual yet romantic tension between the characters, and of course, several twists that you would never (well, I've never) predict nor expect in the end. I found mysel

Im conflicted.
On one hand, I enjoyed this book and yet - it also was predictable, corny/mushy and a bit silly!! I had worked out the ending from about 1/3 of the way through (not a good thing). I thought Reggie was a twat the entire book. He should have stayed a rat the cheating prick!! I found it annoying that it was completely obvious that Nathaniel was head over heels in love with her (after only 3 days that is - eeeekkk. Thats a bit stupid right there too!!

So, about this time last year, I started reading this book. I got about thirty or so odd pages in, when I had to stop reading it. That should tell you my opinion of it.

The biggest issue I found with this book is that absolutely no one in it has a good trait. They're all huge self-important assholes whose maturity is stuck somewhere between 14 to 16, with few social skills and even fewer communication skills. Everyone talks and acts like they've stepped out of Sweet Valley High.

And here's the thi

Valerie Grace has no idea why she was booted out of heaven and landed naked in a killer whale tank. Plus, every day her memories of heaven are fading and she knows it's only a matter of time before the Tempter demon assigned to her shows up. Can Val fight the temptation of the dreamy Nathaniel and find her way back into heaven?

I don't know that if I had seen this particular cover in the image if I would have read this book. I came across a random copy of this and read it while hang

A light hearted story about an angel (Valerie Grace) who becomes a fallen angel seemingly out of the blue (first a note is shoved at her about the rules to abide by if you are a fallen angel, then she finds herself naked and in a killer whale tank). She is determined to find out why she was kicked out of heaven and to get back, but problems abound. First of all, she is assigned a Temptor Demon, Nathanial, whose job it is to tempt her to Hell, and she has trouble saying no. Then her friend gets t ...more

*Kindle Read*

Although this book had a bit of a slow start, it improved as Valerie's grip on her new found humanity improved. Not certain if that was intentional, but either way once I was beyond that point it didn't matter.

The characters were great (just as I have come to expect from Michelle Rowen), and I even ended up with a soft-spot for Reggie (even if he can be a rat -- literally & figuratively speaking).

Just the right mix of humor, squishy romantic feelings, and a couple of twists and

A good read by Michelle Rowen. I would call this urban fantasy (as I would call all of her works - especially the Immortality Bites series). This is PG compared to most of the "paranormal romance" out there. Good lazy day read or beach day where you are leery of the kids over turning your book (and reading something they shouldn't be).

A fallen angel who has no idea why she was kicked out of Heaven is sent on a mission to save the world from Lucifer's insane (and apparently impotent bastard son,

Suddenly kicked out of heaven, Valerie Grace is one confused fallen angel struggling to adapt to being human. With her fall from grace comes her own personal Tempter demon, Nathaniel, whose sole job is to tempt Val to his side. Among a frantic race for the stolen Key to Heaven, Val must try to resist the oh-so-irresistible Nathaniel.

Such a great premise and interesting characters, but this just fell a little flat for me. Val and Nathaniel both are full of life, but I just never saw their connect
Diane ~Firefly~
This was a cute, fun, light story. Valerie is thrown from heaven and ends up working as a maid in a run-down hotel near Niagra Falls.

What I enjoyed:
* Reggie - he was a fun character and pretty brave to be with his girlfriend.
* The slight twist at the end.
* The things Valerie was doing trying to get back into heaven.
* Nathaniel's reaction to Valerie sneezing.
* Lloyd the romance writing demon.

What could have been better:
* A little more romance would have been nice.

Loved it! Excellent for people who are looking for a light, fun read. I also liked Nathaniel and the protagonist Valerie. I liked how the author managed to add in biblical sins and her imagination of the Underworld.

The rat's journey and commentary made for a very fun read.
Also I also had to add one of the bits that cracked me up. Spoiler alert!!!

"Muck-ruick soorl" the demon spat at her.
"How dare you!"
"What did he say?" Val asked.
"No idea," Claire replied. "But it sounded rude don't you think?"
Aug 06, 2015 Renae rated it it was ok
While this book had some pretty funny parts, I thought it was overall just ok. I didn't find the characters super relatable because they seemed very shallow and over-exaggerated. It was fun and entertaining, but with as silly a storyline as it had, it was hard to really be gripped by the book. Rowen's writing is creative, but I just didn't especially love the characters and there was very little character development. As I said, it was just ok.

A fallen angel and a tempter demon team up to retrieve the stolen Key to Heaven from Lucifer himself. With the aid of a friend bewitched into a rat, the duo invade the Underworld and battle foes to reach their goal. But when they get the key, will Valerie use it to return through the heavenly gates, or will she decide to remain behind, forever earthbound, to be with the demon who loves her? A quick-read story with wit and attitude.

A great romance between a demon and an angel. This is one of my favorite books from Michelle Rowen. After I read her books "Bitten and Smitten" and "Fanged and Fabulous" I had to read this one. I was glad I did too. I like even more than her other two books I've read. I hope she has other works out because I want to read them so badly!!
Aug 27, 2010 Gina rated it it was ok
I was disappointed in this book. The heroine is a dumb blonde and it just didn't hold my interest.
An angel falls to earth, she doesn't know why and meets a super hunky tempter demon, whose job it is to tempt her to hell.

She tries to find a way to earn her way back to heaven, falls in love with the demon who hates his job and saves the world.

Didn't care for this one at all.

Michelle Rowen never disappoints! Funny and sexy characters, great adventure, and lots of romance! Valerie is a fallen angel, Nathaniel is a tortured, misunderstood Tempter demon, Reggie gets to experience his “true nature” & Lloyd is a one eyed, grey-skinned, best selling romance writer from the Underworld! Hilarious! I can’t wait to read more from this author!
Mar 20, 2010 Jill rated it liked it
This was definitely an interesting idea, but I didn't like it nearly as much as Bitten and Smitten by the same author. It just didn't seem to flow as well and when the main characters all of a sudden were telling one another they loved each other, it just didn't feel right to me. For whatever reason, I didn't feel the buildup that would justify that outcome.

I enjoyed this book! The author catches you from the beginning and holds it until the end. I'm not big on fantasies but this one was great. I laughed,cried,and even found myself get alittle irritated throughout this book.
I recommend this to any female who likes a little fantasy every now and then!

i thought i'll enjoy this book from reading the plot.,but then i was a lil disappointed.,although some remarks are funny i don't think the story got enough substance.,and its like trying too hard to have a romance in it.,the revelation of love between Julian and Val was off.,so just 1 star:)

This was rather a silly book - but maybe I didn't enjoy it as much because I'd just finished a book by a comic and I seldom read two books alike one after the other. It was a fantasy, too, and I found problems with that because I don't love it! For those who do like it, it was okay, I guess.
