Blog Tour - Fallen by Julie Morgan


Lisa Adams wants what every other woman wants: The perfect job. The perfect home. The perfect guy. When she receives the opportunity of a lifetime, Lisa has no idea what shes actually signed up for. Her boss, who is tall, dark and incredibly sexy, starts making advances towards her and shes having a hard time telling him no. Lisa begins seeing things that are scaring the Hell out of her. Nightmares are leaving her frightened.

Then theres this new guy thats come into her life. He brings a new light into the darkness that threatens to claim Lisa. Hes mysterious, heartwarming and kind. Not to mention the most beautiful man shes ever met. But something with him seems to be off.

Faced with love, seduction, sacrifice and deceit, Lisa will find herself being pulled in two directions; one pursues her to claim her soul and the other will sacrifice everything to save her.

 Review by Janeane - ARC received for honest review

I really enjoyed the premise of the story - demons, angels, who will she choose.

I liked Lisa - she seems to be a strong, steadfast woman.  She is thriving in the career she loves, and everything is all going to plan.  And for once she is not a whiney, complaining, procrastinating and weak, character

The first about 20% of the story felt a bit schizophrenic, jumping from character to character, and for a while there I felt a bit perplexed as to what was happening
But then things started to settle down and I became really engrossed in the story.

And the two "men" in Lisa's life.  Her boss, Samuel, who has recently beome a lot more flirtatious with her, and has become a lot more suggestive with what he want with her.  And her sexy neighbour, Alex, who drops into her life and changes her for the good.

Neither man is what they seem, and we get taken on a ride to discover who they are and what they want from Lisa.  I was unsure if I wanted Lisa to be with Samuel or Alex (at least until we found out more about them).  But in the end, Team Alex all the way.

Through their stories, we find out what people would be willing to give up for the one they love, and the consequences of the decisions they make.

Unfortunately for me, I felt that the last 10-15% if the book again lost the fluidity of the middle part of the book, and felt that we were rushed towards the conclusion of this story, only to find
 Perhaps a little more time could have been spent to get our characters to where they were at the end, instead of everything being wrapped up as quickly as it was?

But this may be just me, and you will all have to read Fallen yourself and see what you think.

Fallen is a good debut novel from Ms Morgan, and I know that I will go ahead and read the next book when it comes out, to learn what happens to Lisa, Alex and the other players in this book.
