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’s fighting. So if Maddie thinks she’s gonna deal with an insane drug lord on her own, she’s crazier than he is.
She’s got a debt she can’t pay. He’s got more money than he needs.
She’s not gonna fall for his charm. He’s gonna make sure that happens.
They’re destined to be together. Even if Maddie doesn’t know it yet.
Sometimes your soul mate isn’t who you’d choose, it’s who you need.
Good thing you don’t get to choose.
Holy shit – what did I just read!? And I mean that in the absolute best way possible! JA Huss and Johnathan McClain packed a serious punch in Angels Fall and I’m still reeling from the effects. Maddie and Tyler’s story had everything I look for in a good book; there was some steamy romance, intriguing twists, and trials that ultimately lead to unforgettable moments.
“It’s a soft kiss. A touching kiss. A forgiving kiss. And when we break apart, we are more together than ever.”
Tyler was great in Sin With Me, but he shone even brighter in this second novel of the series. He accepted his mistakes and really made an effort to fix things. I loved seeing that maturity and realization that he needed to get out of his own head. Furthermore, his inner monologues added such a dose of humor and lightheartedness to the novel, even in moments of distress. As a reader, I couldn’t help but giggle relentlessly and look forward to the chapters from his point of view. Furthermore, my admiration really grew for Maddie as well. She started to question her circumstances and open her eyes to the world around her. In many ways, I also think she developed more of a spine and started to really value her worth. It felt like she was morphing into a woman who knew what she wanted and would do anything to get it, which definitely makes me anxious for more!
“Me, battered and bloodied but still here. Her, without visible scars, but no less punctured and bruised. And also still here.”
As the two of these characters transformed as individuals, they also grew as a couple and it made me beyond giddy. I’m usually not one to read books from two different authors, but McClain and Huss are seamless in their transitions. There are two distinct voices, yet so complementary that it never feels like a disjointed read. With unforgettable characters, flawless writing, and a gasp-inducing ending that will leave you drooling for more, Angels Fall hit the trifecta of perfection. I can’t wait to see what happens next!
