Fallen in Love is based on Arriane, and so you don't really need to read it. The Fallen series are really good, most of the people judge on the first book which is quite stereotypical but the second, third and fourth book is really good, so if you really want a plot twist and an interesting story line you must keep reading. I hope this helps :)(less)

Post-review: I feel like, after reading almost all of this series, now, including the in-between book that I was in no way obligated to read, I am allowed to write a letter. I feel as if we have grown......so much closer over this series. So much closer.....:

My dearest Lauren Kate; my honey-bun, my up-and-downer; my peach,

I regret to inform you that your writing has gone all-out bipolar on us all, and this book is prime evidence of that fact. Passion was the worst book of this series to dat

This book is about the only Valentine's day that Luce and Daniel ever had together.

Fallen in love?
Fallen 3.5?
Is this a very nasty joke?
*looks at the reviews* O_O Shit.
Awesome. Just freaking awesome. Now I got to read this '3.5' book too.
God! is this just me who wants to just finish this fucking series already so I could know the end due to my big mistake of even starting reading this series? I seriously want to finish and get over with this.
Anyway, pretty cover. -.-

They REALLY need to stop screwing with Fernanda's art!!!

Wow. What a complete waste of paper.

The last time I checked, a "novel" was more than two-hundred measly pages of huge text and lots of chapter breaks. Calling this tiny thing a "novel" is ridiculous, as is pricing it at $15.99. Luckily, I got it on sale at Target, so it wasn't too expensive, but I totally want my money back after reading it.

To all of you people out there,
there is one thing I don't quite understand; if you have already read the other books in the series, and didn't like them, why do you really have to go and search about this book? And then, why do you have to "review" it, since it hasn't even been published yet? Even if you have no other interest in your life other than being all mean to authors and books, I suggest you keep it to yourself. You can write in your diary.

This is a novella you can just skip. It doesn't add anything important to the main books other than the details of how Ariane came to her scars.
There are only 4 little love stories.


If you wish to read this novella on your own, without knowing anything about it... stop here.

Okay. So maybe I knew what I was getting myself into. Just maybe. But I still gave it a try. I was sane enough to. But boy. Boy, oh, boy. The first story was incredibly idiotic. Miles and Shelby are nincompoops.


I don't know why I just did that. Anyway, Shelby is so annoying. Miles is such a wuss. All they talked about was Luce and Daniel. And it just amazes me how those two tolerate each other. I mean, I have to be pretty insane to not want to beat the crap out of them.

Pretty. Insa

I liked this mini-read. It consists of short love stories and I liked them all. It doesn't add to the actual Fallen series which I already expected and I didn't mind.

We are taken to Medieval England and learn of Valentine's day. We also learn some things about Roland and Ari's past which I had been wanting to know throughout the series so yeah that was great.

A lovely short read.

3.5 stars

I really enjoyed getting to know some of the side characters a little better.
Luce is becoming more and more of a problem for me...sooo lame.
I think I will take a break before I try the last two books.

Fallen in Love is a novel which tells the tales of Miles, Shelby, Roland, Arriane, Luce and Daniel finding love on Valentine’s Day in Medieval England. With four different stories and each one completely different from the other, it was nice to see them all come together at the end to help Daniel and Luce have their perfect Valentine’s day. I did enjoy the single stories, some more than others but I don’t think it’s something you have to read in order to continue with the series. So read it or d ...more

Reading this for the second time made me realise just how much I had forgotten!
It was so good being able to delve back into these little side stories to see the different kinds of love and relationships. There was heartbreak but there was also joy and comfort.

We were able to learn a little more about a couple of characters plus see a new relationship blossom!
Overall, if you have any interest in the Fallen series, definitely check this novella out. It is not essential reading but it does give

I really enjoyed all the stories, and as always I like to see more of each character
I also like that one of those was actually a LGBTQ+ relationship because in those years it wasn't that popular to include those kind of relationship but I was surprised and I think that one is my favorite
I was really into Miles and Shelby relationship I think they were so cute

Miles and Shelby: 4/5 stars

I really liked the story but it was not like...something to wow me, it was quick and funny.

Roland: 5/5 stars

Roland is my fave<3 I never expected him to have such a story. It was really painful and proved that he is not heartless

Arianne: 5/5 stars

Even more heartbreaking. OH MY GOD. Arianne's story was my favorite because it was so cute and sad and a million other things

Luce: 3/5 stars

This one wasn't the best. To be honest, I loved how cute it was but not much hap

This was...okay? It wasn't as annoying as the original books, that's for sure — and honestly the romance was less cringy, but it still lacked the oomph factor and everything felt low-stakes. ...more

I gave this a poor rating due to the fact that two of the stories had terrible endings. I like the characters in the book but when you don't give happy endings in love stories you make me mad. I get that real life isn't always happy but this is books. Authors should just know that more times than not the person reading it wants a happy ending. ...more

This is just a few short stories about side characters in the Fallen series. Roland's story was great and gave him some much needed development, Shelby's was the same, though not quite as good, the other two are horrendously forgettable. If you're a fan of this series then read this one (before the final book). It's not needed but it's a good look at some other characters that don't get enough focus. ...more

'Love where you least expect it'
(The valentine of Miles and Shelby) :

This story follows Miles and Shelby as they step out of an announcer and into Medieval times, or more specifically, into the middle of a Valentine's faire!

I really enjoyed this as it gave more depth into the two's relationship and saw it develop more without any distractions/life-changing missions.

I had no idea it contained 4 separate love stories with our favourite characters and yet the 4 love stories were combined as one...

True Love Never Says Goodbye… Except for the reader, who reads these books with such intensity and passion that they almost want to strangle the publisher for having the nerve to offer an excerpt to the final Fallen book that they won’t be able to get their hands on for a few more months.

I usually don't have a single page that stands out to me but in this case, with this book, there is that 1 page. Page 87 where we discover Cam has turned up in the city I was born in! It doesn't state the name of the city but its clear from the description.

"He found Cam at the southern tip of the Islands that would one day be called New Zealand" ohh yes. My home, my heart. Forever. Which is interesting as this is a book about 4 love stories. And my real home, is my love.

So very fantastic, loved these stories of love, whether is's starting, ending, hard times or easy times, and now to read Rapture!

*First read July 8th 2012*
Lots of great short stories of romance, some sad, some not, but all of them great, and the excerpt from Rapture was amazing! Can't wait for my library copy of it to come in!

"And in that moment under the stars, a simple understanding passed among the four. Sometimes love needed a lift from its guardian angels, to get its feet off the ground. But once it made its first early beats toward flight, it had to be trusted to take wing on its own and soar past the highest conceivable heights, into the heavens,and beyond."
