Fate offers no mercy. Especially not to those who betray her.

Lethal Guardian Aric's loyalty never falters. Not even when Fate exiled him and his brothers from the Heavens, separating Aric from his soulmate. He'll do anything to reunite with her. But when Willow suddenly appears in the mortal realm, Aric's greatest fear comes true—she's no longer the angel he left behind.

This is Aric's story and it runs the gamet of emotions. Willow is a complex character that I wavered back and forth about until about halfway through. There is a lot of tension in this one. The romance is steamy and sweet. We get more about Blaine and Fate. There is still much to happen ahead and I can't wait for the next book! It's so easy to fall for these characters and become invested in the world this author has created. ...more

I received a copy of Unforgotten from Netgalley for an honest review. Unforgotten is the second book of The Fallen Guardians. I was not aware of that before requesting the book, but I was still able to follow the plot line of the book without reading the first one. The book itself is very well written. The author makes you feel for the characters. I love the fact that the story is about a couple that was already together before, and got to see their struggles. The book was full of suspense, humo ...more

Blaine spent his time trying to syphon the heavenly powers from angels since he fell from heaven. Once he had enough he could challenge Zath for the throne. Then he could get back to the angel he loved.

Aric, Raven and the other Guardians had been sent to save Blaine but Aric had left his soulmate in heaven and he planned to return to her at some point. Willow got tired of waiting and Blaine talked her into becoming a Fallen as well. Blaine said he would be at the gates of Hell to bring her back

Aric is a delightful mix of old pain and secrets, with a tough guy exterior he uses as armour. Willow has a depth of emotion that makes her truly relatable, and her suffering comes through on a visceral level to the reader. Great characters, amazing tension and an excellent next installment in the series as a whole. I particularly enjoyed getting a better glimpse of Blaine and how his mind works!

For those looking to sink their teeth into a paranormal, second-chance romance packed with tension, complex characters, high-stakes, gripping emotion and laugh-out-loud humour, then you need not look any further. The second book Cassie Laelyn’s The Fallen Guardians series, Unforgotten, is a triumph within the genre and a must read for any fans of the J. R. Ward’s Fallen Angels series.

Cassie’s narrative style, world building, character development and gripping plot create a story that is unputdow

This was an addictive read, I loved Willow and Alaric, you really go on Willows journey with her , feeling her anger and despair at being abandoned and the writing is so good. You can’t help but need to know they’ll be ok, as i did because I read this in one sitting. Great chemistry, lovely connection and story. I hadn’t read the first book in this series but I felt you didn’t need to stood well as a lone book, no cliffhangers, just a lovely Heartwarming end.

Thanks to netgalley and the publisher

The Fallen Guardians series continues with Unforgotten, an action packed and compelling sequel. The Mystery surrounding Aric and his history that was hinted at in book 1 is unveiled.
When Aric was exiled from the heavens with his brothers he was separated from his soulmate. Without knowing the details of why he disappeared, Willow has spent centuries believing that he abandoned her. The toxic pool of bitterness, heartache, and pain has been affecting her angelic powers.

Even though Aric has been exiled from the Heavens and his soulmate, he'll do anything to be with Willow again. When she shows up on Earth, he realizes she's no longer the angel he once knew. Can Aric and Willow navigate their new existence and a second chance a love or will they be thrust into a life neither of them wants?

Unforgotten is my first book by Cassie Laelyn and even though it is book two in the series, the backstory provided filled in what I needed to know from book 1. For the most par

The Fallen Guardians series just gets better and better! Unforgotten is a wonderful love story and I had trouble putting it down. This book picks up approximately one year after book 1, Unforsaken, ended and centers around Aric and his soulmate Willow. While there is no mistaking that this is a PNR it also reads like a second-chance romance. This book had me on the edge of my seat wondering if they would reconnect and what would happen to them! They are a great couple and Aric's never ending lov

A binge-worthy successor to Unforasken

I loved Unforsaken, so it was a pretty big ask for Laelyn to top that, but she certainly delivered! Holy moly!

Aric and Willow are raw, and real, and my heart bled all over the place a dozen times reading this. Ultimately though, it was the fact that each of the characters spoke to me in a different voice, that even the side characters had a message to give, that was what made this book brilliant.

For those who haven’t read Unforsaken, I’d suggest you read th

Oh Willow and Aric, you just about broke me. *sigh*

I knew from the moment I finished Unforsaken that The Fallen Guardians was going to become a new favorite. If possible, I think I may have liked Unforgotten even more, and not just because of Willow and Aric.

Of course if you’ve read Unforsaken, (which you totally should before you pick up Unforgotten) you’re already met Aric. I only thought that he broke my heart in the first book. Having him know that Willow was in the mortal

What an epic story!! So many decisions Aric and Willow had to make all with Fate giving them forks in the road. Blaine the very temperamental bada** coerces Willow to fall. The strength between soulmates is the strongest magic. This story will constantly have your heart cracking just to stitch it back together! The Fallen Guardians series is a must read paranormal romance full of action and hot hot Angel romance.

This is the first of these books that I've read but the second book in the Fallen Guardians series. The book worked well as a standalone novel and while there was a bit of the background and world to understand, I didn't feel that I missed out at all by not having read the previous book. There is an explanation of all of the angel types and what they do at the end of the book, which was helpful. I think you could work out most of it from the story, it might have been better before the story bega ...more

After reading Unforsaken, I really wanted to know what would happen to the other Fallen Guardians. So I was very happy to find Unforgotten on Netgalley. Because this was Aric's story. And just when I thought Fate could not be any more cruel than she was for Raven, I realize she was even more cruel to Aric. Because when Aric chose to go with Raven to retrieve Blaine from earth, he didn't realize Fate banned him for centuries on. So he didn't even get to say goodbye to his soulmate Willow.

I just love this author <3 The first book Unforsaken..hooked me in, but Unforgotten..locked me into this series. You’ll read in the 1st book about Aric and his longing for his Soulmate Willow. So when you read this book you’re sucked into the emotional rollercoaster of their Romance. I’m not an easy crier, but let me tell ya, I was grabbing for the tissues, a few times. What an AMAZING story and plot for this series. I can’t wait for the next book!!!!

What an amazing story! Unforgotten, the second instalment in Cassie Laelyn’s Fallen Guardian series is unique, beautifully written and sizzling! Willow and Aric’s individual journeys toward their HEA are gut-wrenching and impossible to put down. The stunning and rugged beauty of the Australian high country is beautifully woven into the tale and matches the story perfectly for unique character and edgy action. I love that this story follows immediately on from Unforsaken. It felt like I was visit ...more

An amazing follow up to Unforsaken. Aric and Willow have a lot of history together which is told in some flashbacks.
Aric is swoonnnn - he builds a cabin just for her.
This novel will make you believe in soul mates.

I don’t usually tear up or hold my breath when reading books, but this one did. Cassie’s second book in this series is a wonderful read. It took me a few hours, I just devoured it. Aric and Willow’s story is well worth reading and entering the Guardians world again is well worth it. I cannot wait for the third book in this series.

When his brother, Raven, made a deal with Fate, loyal-to-a-fault Aric hadn’t given it a second thought to join him on his quest. But he should have. At first, he thought the task would be easy enough, and he’d return to the heavens before his love was any the wiser. But he’d been wrong. So very wrong. Now he’s caught in the mortal world and his true love, his Willow, was somewhere in the heavens where he couldn’t reach. She must know he still loves her though, even after all these centuries apar ...more

Ms. Laelyn has done it again, I loved Unforgotten. From the very first page I was hooked. I could not put it down, she sucked me back into the guardians world and kept me she always does.
The love between Willow and Aric was perfectly captured. It was a rollercoaster ride, but it was perfect in every way possible. This is a romance that will tear at your heart but also leave you smiling because Willow and Aric are THE ultimate couple–sorry Raven and Tayla.

Oh wow, this book had all the feels. Separated from his soulmate for centuries, Aric has never lost faith that one day they will be reunited in the Heavens. That faith is shaken when the unthinkable happens and Willow makes a decision that could destroy their future.
I really felt for Willow, spending hundreds of years in Heaven believing that Aric had abandoned her and can understand why her pain caused her to make a choice that would set them both on a collision course with Fate.

Thank you Netgalley for the digital ARC. I had been waiting for the second book in the series. I had waited quite some time and therefore i had forgotten half of the characters. I got back into the swing of it and went on to appreciate this angelic love story- pun intended. I loved this book as much as part 1 and i hope theres more to come! Soulmates are a powerful thing.

Thank you to NetGalley for giving me this book in exchange for an honest review!

Unforgotten is book 2 in the Fallen Guardians series by Cassie Laelyn. The story in general is pretty typical: fallen angels, lost loved, and a fight to save a pure soul.
Willow felt abandoned when her soulmate Aric left Heaven on a mission. She tried to have faith but the centuries passed and feelings of pain and resentment festered. Enter fallen angel, Blaine. Blaine offers her a way out of Heaven, where she feels

Unforgotten is the second book in by Cassie Laelyn’s ‘The Fallen Guardians’ series, and the story focuses on Raven’s second, Aric and the soulmate he left behind in Heaven, Willow. Due to the circumstances surrounding their separation and the years of suffering that resulted in Willow’s decision to fall from grace; Unforgotten is a story that runs a gamut of emotions and tests the very foundation that love is built upon.

Aric and Willow’s story is jam-packed with danger, tension and some moments
