I didn't fangirl out this time on L.G. Castillo but that doesn't mean I can't fangirl out right now. OMG!!!! LOVED LOVED LOVED THIS BOOK!!!! Reading a series is like hanging with old friends. I really didn't realize how much I missed all those crazy angels until the first sentence. I wouldn't wait to find out how Naomi and Lash were doing and what happened to Welita and Chuy. I also wanted to make sure Bear was ok, that crazy dog was a great addition to all the cast of characters in the first ...more

This series is one of my favorite series so I jumped at the chance to review this sequel after loving the first book, Lash. After the fall follows the aftermath of Naomi's death and her becoming an archangel. In this book, there's more drama, more romance, and more shocking revelations. Though the beginning to me was a

A wonderful read

I absolutely loved this book and could not stop reading. There were some parts where i wanted to throw the kindle and some parts where i got teary eyed... I felt like I was actually living the story with the characters. Well done, L.G. Castillo!

I have been waiting for this book since I closed the last page of Lash (Broken Angel, #1) last May. I love to read stories about angels :) Out of all the creatures I love to read about, angels are the ones that still my heart. Reading about Angels opens a whole new world to me. They just have that power to pull me in and completely make me forget of the REAL world. L.G. Castillo delivered once again with this sequel. It was a blast to reunite with Naomi, Lash, Jeremy, Raphael, Rebecca, Uri, ...more

Since Lash and Naomi decided they would be together, and Lash revealed his true nature and his mission to Naomi, a lot has happened. There were losses and gains on both sides . And the hardest thing was Lash having to accept that the old Naomi he knew would never be the same person. Her body , her spirit , her abilities , would be transformed , and the girl he is in love belongs to another man .

How so ? ? ? That freaked everything! !

This is book 2 in the ‘Broken Angel’ series, and kicks off a few weeks after the end of book 1 ‘Lash’.
**Warning – some unavoidable spoilers for book 1 ‘Lash’.**
Naomi and Lash are finally together, but Lash has still to reveal his guilty secret concerning Jane Sutherland and Naomi’s father’s death.

I was given this book(ARC) in exchange for an honest review (Lovers of Paranormal).

After her death, Naomi has now to deal with her life as an archangel. But life as an angel with a lot of power is not like most people imagine it, since great power comes always with great responsibility. Will Naomi be able to handle her new status or simply throw everything away?

As I already stated above life as an angel really doesn't seem to be a piece of cake. Everytime doing assignments and then you are not

I got this book from the author, free of cost, in exchange of an honest review from my side!

Firstly I would like to thank L.G Castillo, author of After the Fall, for giving me this wonderful opportunity of reading and reviewing this fantastic book.

I really fell in love with it and drooled over it like a dork while I read about my new crush. Guess who is that? Of course it's LASH, guys! Who else can it be? Well the author didn't leave any option other than loving Lash and I'm sure all the girls

I seriously don't know what to say about this. After reading the first book, I immediately dove into the second one. Heck, I nearly finished both of them in a day. Luckily, I resisted and ended up having about a quarter left to read.

With Naomi being the seventh archangel, she finally gets a taste of what Lash has been doing for his whole life. Partnered with Jeremy and leaving on bad terms with Lash, Naomi discovers the difficulty of being an angel. The plot thickens and becomes as engaging as

Another pretty good book in this series. Again, the writing was not great but I think the characterisation was a lot better this time around and the editing was still pretty good. I still like the story and the creativity behind it - especially once the author answered most of the lingering questions from the first book. It was well paced and didn't take me long to get into. This book in the series focuses a lot more on Lash's angelic family and Naomi's adjustment to living with them instead of ...more

After reading the first book, I had high expectations for this one. While it wasn't perfect, I still really enjoyed After the Fall. The main problem I had with the first book, was the lack of explanations or closure. I really enjoyed learning more backstory about the characters. I loved the interactions with Naomi and Jeremy too. The overall storyline was really good, and I loved that Naomi's family was brought back in. BUT, I did not like the ending. Again. That seems to be my problem with this ...more

I couldn't even finish it. I stopped at like the 60th page.

The story in the first book wasn't that great, but in this one from what I've read was simply awful.
Cheap drama and stupid reactions/feelings made me so annoying that I just gave up.
It could've been good, I mean, so far all the books I've read with angels in it were interesting. But in this one, it was just ugh.
Angels are supposed to be powerful, warriors, charismatic. But in After The Fall, we have angels who cry all the

I tend to only give 5 star reviews to books that kept my interest to a point that I chose to finish the book rather than sleep. Which is exactly what happen with this story, as soon as I read the first few pages I was hooked. The story had everything: passion, action, a horribly sad background, and sacrifice.

This is the second book in the broken Angel series, and it left me a little bit disappointed. It wasn't as strong as the first book, and felt rushed while I was reading it.
The plot was slow at some points, and it lacked the adventurous aspect of the first book. I would have liked to see more adventure aspects rather than just romance, but I digress.
It was disappointing to see the main character giving up her role as archangel. I was expecting stronger characteristics in this female lead. She

I liked this one a teeny bit better than Lash...but only a teeny bit.

From the start when I heard Rachel and Uri's flashback story I was like here's the ending. It's either going to be a sacrifice of Lash, Naomi, or Jeremy. When I get to the end, my suspicions were again confirmed. I mean I liked the beginning of the book a lot, but then it lost me when Naomi and Jeremy went to

The past is slowly being revealed

Lash and Naomi are finally together living in the heavens. Things get tense when Jeremy returns. Jeremy and Lash were close friends, brothers even when Raphael revealed some of their past to them. They were brothers in a past life and they were torn apart by their love for Naomi. If things weren't tense before they are even more tense now as Raphael tells Lash that Jeremy is assigned as Naomis' mentor on her first assignment on earth.

Lash and Naomi’s heart pounding rollercoaster of emotions continues in After The Fall. These two imperfect angels truly captured my heart in the first installment of this series. Yes they got their HEA but...what happens after that? What about the doubts that love to creep in and niggle in the back of your mind? What about the trials that come along and test the dtrength of love for any cpuld? And is it so very differant for two of God’s heavenly beings?

Naomi is an angel, she and Lash live in a little house that Lash built by himself in heaven, and Jeremy's one smoking hot angel. Lash is reunited with his family, and there's all sorts of drama in Heaven again, with angels hiding things from angels and loyalties being tested and evil lurking around.

What's not to like??

It was nice to see all the human characters and get to know better some of the angels that barely made an appearance in the first book. Even the bad guys – I find Luke and Sal

I felt close to home with the whole Hispanic back ground that was embedded in these stories.

I was given this book to read for an honest review from the group LOP and the author LG Castillo>

This book is by far so much better then the 1st one. We already know the characters so we got to enjoy the actual story! This book made me laugh, made me cry and was overall just really really good! There isn't all that much that I would change at all, maybe speed it up a little bit. Overall this book was very well laid out, was very well written and was a very good read.

Thank you for given me

A nice conclusion to Lash and Naomi's story first told during the first book in the series, Lash. For some reason I had a much harder time getting into this one than the last. I am hoping it was merely a sophomore slump, and that the next book draws me back into this tale. I really wanted to love this one, but the story felt a bit forced and not as fluid as Lash did. I missed the main characters from book one who seemed like minor players in this one.

All in all a good solid book with an ending
