Book review on Fallen (Chronicles of the Fallen #1) by +Julie Morgan

Rated it

Blurb:  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 she’s actually signed up for. Her boss, who is tall, dark and incredibly sexy, starts making advances towards her and she’s 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 there’s this new guy that’s come into her life. He brings a new light into the darkness that threatens to claim Lisa. He’s mysterious, heartwarming and kind. Not to mention the most beautiful man she’s 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.

This book begins and ends with Lisa Adams, a smart, sophisticated, beautiful woman.   The story begins with her preparing for the job interview of a lifetime.  A PR firm that is a career maker for someone like Lisa.  She aces the interview and lands the job!  As she makes her way up the ladder, she starts feeling an empty place in her heart for someone to love.  Here comes hot, sexy, I want him, Alex.  They meet in her very own condo building, yes ladies, he lives there!!  Naturally, they start dating...  As we walk through their courtship, it started reminding me of when my husband and I started dating, (insert aww's here).  You know how it is when you first start dating, you want to be with him ALL the time, and feel giddy whenever he calls.  This is what it was like for Lisa.  

As Lisa begins to become more successful, her boss, Samuel begins to make his moves on her.  She really likes Alex, but there is something about Samuel that draws her to him, making her want him.  Once the seduction starts with Samuel, Lisa begins to start seeing shadows, and swears she saw Samuel's eyes flash red.  She begins to see things in her bathroom mirror that really freak her out!  And this is where the true nightmare for Lisa and Alex begin.

The story was very captivating, sexy, and alluring.  I felt connected to Lisa and empathized with her feelings towards Alex.  I wanted them to be a couple, to make that final leap in their relationship.  As I learned more about Samuel, I really didn't like how he ultimately ended up deceiving Lisa, but this did not tear her and Alex apart, it only made them closer.  Which in retrospect, tells you a lot about how Lisa and Alex really feel for each other, even though they haven't admitted it to themselves or each other.  

I also liked how down and dirty the author got with the creation of the other-worldly creatures and their abilities.  The author takes us into such a dark, and scary place that can only come from someone with a great, imaginative, creative, and brilliant mind!  I really enjoyed this book and will venture on to the next one in the series. If this book sounds like something you would want to read, go ahead and purchase the next one at the same time, because there is a doozy at the end!
