Sometimes angels fall.

Maddie doesn’t really owe drug lord, Carlos Castillo, money. So she hadn’t taken his threats seriously. Until now. He wants it, whether she owes it or not. And if she doesn’t have it in six weeks he’s gonna take her as payment instead.

Tyler would save the world if he could. That’s a fight that lasts forever. And if there’s one thing he’s good at, it

Jo - •.★Reading Is My Bliss★.•
At the end of Sin With Me everything was left up in the air. That stunning revelation at the end completely messed them up and each of them deals with it in very different ways. Tyler feels like everything is spinning out of control and he is desperate to make sense of why Maddie has come back into his life, it has to mean something right? In the meantime he will do a little bit of self destructing while he works it out.

Maddie is dealing with an angel on one shoulder and the devil on her other o

Book two of the Original Sin series continues the story of Maddie and Tyler. We’ve met the characters, we’ve experienced their meeting and now we are really getting to the nitty-gritty of each character.

And although this installment did have some suspense to it, what I found was it was about diving deeper into each character. Tyler is screwed up, no doubt. And Maddie, man that girl really needs to catch a break. And together these two broken characters have to fight to save themselves – through

Sin With Me left us with huge cliffhangers and Angels Fall is about dealing with the aftermath.

Tyler realizes he’s been coasting by on life and now he has a new purpose. Help Maddie. Not only does he want to help her, but he also wants to win her back. He just isn’t sure how to do that when she wants nothing to do with him. Tyler turns to Maddie’s boss, the owner of the strip club, for advice.

Maddie had the shock of her life and she’s not handling it well. Her life seems to be spiraling out of
Wow! Once more this writing duo blew me away!

I don’t want to give any spoilers so I will try to refrain from giving any actual details of this amazing story. Maddie’s character, having been broken too many times, faces the heavy burden of depression even as she forces herself to continue onward each day. Things around her are changing and while some hold the promise of goodness, they are not geared toward her. She continues to walk the path planned out for her by the man who holds her accountab

Although Sin With Me didn't leave the best impression on me, I was still curious to check out the sequel to see if this story would improve. Long story short: IT GOT EVEN WORSE. I'm going to drop a few spoilers so if you haven't read the first book yet, then avert your eyes.

Angels Fall picks up right where Sin With Me left off. Maddie is taken by Carlos Castillo and is told that she must repay her debt or else. Tyler w

This book aptly titled “Angels Fall”, on its face, is an exciting story of previously star-crossed loves Tyler and Maddie finding each other and dealing with painful issues from the past and present.

OMG I seriously haven't laughed so much reading a book in a good while. "Angels Fall" is the second instalment in the "Original Sin" series and it was bloody brilliant. There was just so much that I loved about this book. The direction the story took kept me seriously entertained and I absolutely relished in the fact that the humour was turned up a good few notches too. If you thought book one was funny, think again. Honest to god, if it wasn't Tyler, Maddie and their crazy inner monolo

If you haven’t started this SEXY and INTRIGUING series yet, YOU ARE MISSING OUT! It’s an absolute SEXY romance with a suspenseful BITE! Cowriters JA Huss and Johnathan McClain has definitely proven that they are a force to be reckoned with in this genre! JA Huss has always been a favorite of mine, but with the addition of Johnathan’s words…well, they have brought something damn special to the table with their Original Sin Series.

Book 2 in the Original Sin series continues to follow the turbulent growing romance between Maddie and Tyler as their lives just spin out of control and turn into total madness as Maddie tries to deal with a drug lord that's chasing her for money that she never even owed him in a bid to make her his. Loved it, not too keen on Maddie's character but love Tyler's crazy sense of humor and hilarious inner voice. The sex is hot, rough and raw, the story line is an interesting one and keeps you readin ...more

‘Sometimes angel’s fall. And that’s OK. Because there are lots of people who still give a shit. There are lots of people willing to extend a hand and lift you back up. I’m not Tyler’s angel. He’s mine.’

Whew, that was quite a ride! Angels Fall, the second installment in J.A. Huss and Johnathan McClain’s Original Sin Series is a super sexy, emotional roller coaster.

Maddie and Tyler continue to struggle with their inner demons and each other. Tyler, however, is enlisting not only what he learned in Nepal from his Rinpoche but also the sage advice of Pete, the owner of the strip club where Maddie works (and a sort of surrogate father figure to both Maddie and Tyler), and helpful hints from Raven,

Angels Fall didn't captivate me the same way Sin With Me did. I felt quite detached from the characters, even if the writing was really good.

Two books in to the Original Sin series, I'm totally on board with this brand new writing duo. I've been a big fan of Julie Huss' for years now, but this series is her first foray into co-authoring, so I didn't know how it would go. You know? I think I can safely say at this point that I love the work that she's putting out in partnership with actor and audiobook narrator Johnathan McClain. It feels like a JA Huss book, but yet it has a slightly different flavor and voice, which, I thin

Angels Fall is the second book in the Original Sin series by JA Huss and Johnathan McClain. We come back to Maddie and Tyler’s story immediately after Sin With Me ends. Both characters are struggling with their past actions that internally translate to personal fails. In my opinion, they aren’t fails but actions that humans take to protect others then continually second-guess the decision for one reason or another.

With Angels Fall , Huss and McClain continue to tell a terrific story of g

So, I'm trying to figure out how to put my thoughts into words and describe how I felt reading this second book in the series. It starts right where we left off in book 1, Sin With Me, so if you haven't read that yet, stop now and go do that first.

One of the first things I have to say about Maddie is she has a lot more lady balls than she does common sense this go-around. Or perhaps it is really just because she is SO tired of trying to climb that mountain, and she's fed up, and disgusted, has

More funny

Just more of everything good
I love Tyler, his inner talks and the things he says are hilarious. In this book we see him growing up and maning up. He knows he have to this to make amends for and he really put the effort. He love Maddie and is no afraid to show it. He knows he is a mess but is training to better himself for her.

That. Ending! Holy smokes, those last couple of chapters... oh, they were INTENSE! This book absolutely ended with my jaw hanging wide open and my heart pounding like a caged tiger begging to be set free. And I know I shouldn’t be surprised at all with what happened there—I swear, with these two authors, anything freaking goes—but I still didn’t see that coming.

So, yeah. Well, this is intense. Again. I don't know how else to describe it. Intense is the best word here.

Maddie and Tyler are totally fucked up, right? And you already know that, but you can't stop reading this story. You just can't. Because these two characters who are flawed in more ways than I can count are the ultimate push and pull, love and hate, friends and enemies kind of story.

Picking up where Sin With Me ends, we know Tyler did some crazy, fucked up shit. We know Maddie is pissed b

The continuation of the story originated in Sin With Me.

There were some interesting revelations at the end of Sin With Me, and in Angels Fall we see some of the fallout. Tyler takes an interesting approach – he actually hangs back and waits to be needed, which is totally a first for him. But can he figure out when he has waited long enough and to step up?

And Maddie – when will she finally ask for the help that others so desperately want to give to her? When will she realize that she has no contr

The romantic connection between Tyler and Maddie is something old and something new. Once upon a time, they meant something to each other and then tragedy tainted their connection, mistakes were made and they both carry a good deal of anger and hurt. Shocked to discover they're suddenly in each others lives again, they struggle to find forgiveness and unders

The Original Sin series continues right where Sin with Me leaves off. Maddie and Tyler are living in their own personal hell. Each trying to find light in so much darkness.

Maddie's stubbornness and "I'll figure this out on my own" attitude is getting in the way of any chance of happiness she may find. Tyler is convinced that they were put in each other's path to help right the wrongs of the past and he is determined to find a way to show Maddie they belong together. The chemistry they share is

Another great read by the talented writing duo!!

I don’t even know where to start. Angels Fall picked up exactly where Sin With Me left us hanging. Maddie’s on her way to see Carlos and Tyler’s in a room full of flames. Now you have to read to find out exactly what happens.

We see so much growth with Maddie and Tyler as individuals and together. So much has changed for the better and worse. Maddie sinks even lower. Her depression becoming worse and her stubbornness getting the better part of her

Angels Fall picks up right after Sin With Me, which must be read prior. It features one heck of a cliffhanger as we wait for the rest of Maddie and Tyler's story.

Angels Fall is a well written, well developed story. It had me gasping and laughing. It was suspenseful, but not too angsty. It cycled through a lot of emotions, but was a book I could NOT put down. I'm so excited for the next part of this series, Ms. Huss and Mr. McClain are a fabulous writing duo, their styles mesh well, and it doesn

I can't get enough of these two. Angels fall was so much more than I expected. Forgiveness and acceptance. That's two of the main things I pulled from this book. Being able to forgive others isn't always easy. But being able to forgive yourself is even harder. Sometimes you fall, but the pieces are there. Just need to put them back together. Tyler and Maddie, I feel, hold all the pieces to the other. These two were meant to be together and I can't wait to see where this story ta
