REVIEW: Angel Fallen by Jennifer Leighton

When Garon gets the news he’s about to be transferred to a new assignment, his entire world comes crashing down around him, for as a guardian angel, a new charge can only mean one thing.

His Jessie, the girl he’s watched over from the moment of her birth, the human he’d been created to protect, is about to die.

Can he stand by and let her be destroyed? Or will he dare to do the unthinkable.

Dare to fall.


Jessica Martin doesn’t believe in happily ever after. Prince Charming is just a lie bought by starry-eyed women, and she’s far from that anymore.

No man has ever measured up to the one who lives in her imagination. With no real family, just temporary ones that came and went, she’s had few constants in her life, but the make-believe friend from her childhood has always been there for her. Always.

Too bad George isn’t real.

So when a mysterious man rescues her from danger, she can’t help but be suspicious. Her Good Samaritan is blond-haired, blue-eyed, and drop dead gorgeous, the complete embodiment of her perfect man, but he’s more than what he seems. The strange familiarity in his eyes, his touch…it shouldn’t be there.

What is he hiding?

3 ANGEL Stars

This debut paranormal novella was a fast, entertaining and steamy read. It’s the tale of Garon, a Guardian Angel, who learns his charge, Jessica (Jessie) is destined to die, which forces him to face his forbidden emotions for this mortal.

He’s been with Jessie since her birth and deeply loves her, in a way that immortal angels should not. He also feels things for her that he knows as a celestial being he shouldn’t. When he learns of Jessie’s fate, he's tormented and does the unthinkable. He gives up his wings for the love of this woman.

The naivety and innocence of Garon was done really well. Now a mortal, he's a beautiful grown man but the way he acts and the simplicity of his words show the truth. He's like a fish out of water and his guiding light is Jessie. To save her and to love and protect her.

Jessica has always had the ability to see Garon who she named George and thought he was her imaginary friend. She depended on him and leaned on him when she needed someone the most.

"He was her one true love. The literal man of her dreams. Her soul mate."

The interesting switch in this relationship was that Jessica was the dominant one. She's strong in spirit and while I liked this about her, she was sometimes too brash and a little hard to take. I understood that she had a hard and lonely childhood and it explained why she was tough and spunky but, I found her struggle to believe Garon, at times, only on the surface and cruel. I may have warmed more to her had there been a balance, a little more vulnerability, if only in her mind as she grappled with who Garon really was.

One thing I'll say, Ms. Leighton has erotic, off-the-chart steamy sex scenes nailed. This woman can write erotic, sensual, sizzling chemistry that had my Kindle burning up! Garon and Jessie are HOT together!

And while Garon may have taken Jessie's lead, he was a faster learner! And the chemistry between the two was electric and also sweet.

Ms. Leighton ended this with a sweet epilogue to this short tale. This was a good read and I think this author shows great promise. I look forward to more from Ms. Leighton.
