It’s really hard to save a guy’s life when he keeps running from you.

You might be asking yourself why I’m waving an inflatable penis in the air and screaming at the top of my lungs. If I took time to explain, Declan Moss would get hit by a bus.

Let me back up. I didn’t ask for this. I was perfectly happy—and perfectly sane—before I was tasked with keeping Declan Moss alive.

A gem

I don’t know why I’m surprised that Torre is also excellent at writing romantic comedies because, obviously, the woman is an overachiever. If you liked The Hating Game, you’ll love Tripping on a Halo.

I love all things Alessandra, but for some reason, this one wasn't working for me. I just couldn't connect, and after getting almost to the half way point and still not being pulled in, I'm calling it quits. Could be me, could be the timing of reading the book, either way- decide for yourself!

Autumn has recently lost her mother and she has a weird head pain that leads her to know that she must keep Declan Moss safe. She is his guardian angel after all.

Does she know him? No Does that stop her? Also no..
Declan? He does notice Autumn following him. Especially after she steals his garbage.

He wavers on the thoughts of getting a restraining order...then he looks at her facebook profile. The girl has a pig!

Surely no one that has a pig is a real threat? *cough cough*

Declan Moss is a gorgeous architect who lives in Tallahassee, Florida. He has a great life except for the creepy, blonde stalker he can’t seem to shake. Between multiple attempts to see him at his office, odd outbursts, and showing up all over town he was convinced she was a lunatic who had serious boundary issues. When she begins to step up her game he becomes more alarmed than flattered.

That was the first thing that popped out of my mouth when I read the first sentence. Hilarious, witty, refreshing, with a touch of sexiness that had you craving more. Tripping On A Halo was the perfect comedic release that I was looking for and I’m so glad that I was introduced to these funny lovable characters.

Autumn is a girl who some would say that her screws aren’t really tightened enough. She’s a bit looney but she has a perfectly good explanation for being that way and no one is
3.75 stars.⭐⭐⭐⭐
A "sweet" romantic comedy from a multi talented writer. She really can tackle any romance genre and bring her own unexpected twist to it.
Case in point the ending..she give us hints along the way but it was still an unexpected way to go with this "stalkerish" and amusing storyline.
Autumn and Declan were both entertaining characters for me and throw in a semi-domesticated pig and you've totally got me!!

Why didn't anyone tell me that Alessandra Torre wrote romantic comedy? Tripping on a Halo was a book that sparkled and had me busting a gut right to the end.

Autumn - this girl was a riot! Although she annoyed me with her refusal to see what was literally in front of her face and how she kept trying to push the hero away when she was obviously attracted to him, somehow her other qualities worked. She was incredibly awkward and delusional. She was a stalker who thought she was a guardian angel. Sh

I've probably described with this word every single release I've read by Alessandra Torre but it doesn't make it any less true: unique. This woman always surprises with her originality and the surprises and twists you do not expect that make story even a more amazing experience. Can you tell how much I enjoyed this book? Well done, Alessandra!

This was a super sweet, lighthearted, different kind of rom-com read. A quirky heroine who is obsessive to a fault but is kindly sincere and a sexy hero who doesn’t know what to think about this crazy heroine.

I love that this story is different in its sweetness. Autumn is a woman who is adorable yet slightly broken hearted. And her thinking she is a sort of guardian angle is endearing. Declan is going about living his life except he has a stalker, until he finds out why. The j

Gripping on a Halo is a cute, lighthearted and fun read.There were moments in this story that I was laughing and others that I was swooning.


I love the characters a lot, Autumn and Declan’s journey is unique and so cute.You'll love their moments and laugh with them.

So unique! And fun! I seriously had the best time while reading this book. I laughed out loud more than a few times. There was one moment in the was funny but in a delayed reaction kind of you didn’t realize how funny it was until a few seconds passes. I laughed so hard I got hiccups.

This is a super cute read and I’m so happy to say that Alessandra Torre does a fabulous job with romantic comedy🙌🏽

Ok, so let me just preface this by telling you that rom coms are not really my thing. I like sarcasm and witty banter that give me a chuckle from time to time but outright silliness in my romance is just not my jam. So maybe that's why this book wasn't my favorite. I'm sure it's a big fat cliche' to say this, but it's probably not the book, it's probably just me.

I read this book rather quickly, devouring it in a day. I was into it, I thought it was cute, I thought Alessandra Torre's writing was

What a fun book! Chloe believes she's a guardian angel to one man. Declan Moss. Declan believes he has a stalker. Declan's best friend slash business partner thinks he's just paranoid. Chloe's sister and shrink thinks this is her way of mourning her mothers loss. All of that combined made for one comedic story that will also really pull at your heart strings.

Chloe was such a fun character. She's quirky, fun and isn't afraid to do anything. She has a pet pig, wears Wonder Woman t-shirts, creates

Oh my god, this book is just such a major ROFL I cannot even.

I've had this book since the first review by a trusted gr friend but never read it. I want to go back and smack myself silly. This book was everything I hope for in a romance especially with a bit of comedy attached. The first part was cute and funny, the middle sexy and sweet and the ending tear jerking, sweet and lovely. My emotions were all over evidently and I really, really enjoyed this one. The h was quirky and funny, I loved her relationship with her family and her pet pig. The H was

"You're going to think I'm crazy."
"I hate to break it to you, but that boat sailed a long time ago."

The author dropped me right in the middle of Crazy Town in the first chapter and I found myself struggling to wrap my head around the situation. That didn't stop me from giggling at the visual of the inflatable penis Declan's guardian angel was waving around. I'm not averse to a little cray-cray, or even a lot, in this case.

What starts off as an awkward, stalker/guardian-angel type of book turned out to be one of my favorite reads of the year and don't mind me, but I'll be swooning still all over Declan. That sweet, sweet man. And

I am OBSESSED! Alessandra Torre has pulled out all the stops and gave us the perfect romance read packed with so much heart and heat and humor in Tripping on a Halo! Seriously, the entire time, I was either sputtering and laughing my butt off, swooning and melting my heart out, or just sighing blissful sighs and falling further down the Declan Moss hole. And then at one point, she goes and drops a bomb you wouldn’t see coming. One that will make you stop breathing. Stop thinking. And just... fee ...more
***5 Stars***

After reading the blurb, hell not even the entire blurb, just the first two sentences and I was all in, because how can you not want to read a book where the heroine has the opportunity to wave an inflatable penis around? You can’t. You. Just. Can’t. So I dove in and I was hooked from the first sentence. This book is all kinds of quirky, sweet and smexy romcom goodness with huge dose of heart that kept me turning the pages until the very end.

Quirky, funny, with a potential hint of the supernatural. Autumn believes she is Declan's Guardian Angel, that only she can keep him out of harms way - she's proved it several times already, right?!!

Declan is at first alarmed, then intrigued by his beautiful stalker. After a while, he comes up with his own oddball reasons as to why she needs to stick around and protect him, including a back woods holiday in rural Florida.

Torre did it again with this fun romp of a story, which suddenly takes a ve
