The Fallen Angel Trilogy by Kim Loraine

Waking the Watcher
Denying the Watcher
Releasing the Watcher

This serieswas a fun paranormal and erotica trilogy. Each book focuses on a different couple but the
background story on the first two books gets resolved in book 3, and as such, the series should
not be read out of order. The background story is Sariel’s, an angel who fell from heaven when
he chose to stay on earth with the woman he fell in love with instead of being a ‘watcher’ for
God. His job was to watch, not to interact and interfere. When he fell, so did hundreds of others
hoping to find the same kind of love that he did. Some did, some are now under the influence of
Lucifer. Sariel’s love died not long after he fell -during the flood- and he has spent thousands of
years dormant with no body of his own inside the mind of others.
On book one he wakes up. He believes that the vampire whose body he is inhabiting has found
the reincarnation of his mate. But is she his mate, or is she the vampire’s mate and he is just
confusing the vampire’s feelings with his own after being dormant for so long?
SPOILERS AHEAD
On book two he is inhabiting the body of Galen’s (vampire on book one) best friend, Devin.
Devin wants a chance to get his soul back and not end up in hell when he finally dies. They
have a deal: Devin gets 5 more years on earth doing whatever he wants without the interference
of the fallen angel in his head, and when the 5 years are up, he gives control to Sariel. During
that time both fallen angel and vampire must fight with the army of God to eradicate or redeem
the other fallen angels.
Needless to say things don’t go according to plan. Devin finds his mate. But so does Sariel.
And in book 3, we finally get Sariel’s story!
We get glimpses into who he was and the time he fell intertwined with the present. The
reincarnation of his mate is not just in love with another man, she is engaged to be married.
Angel Gabriel warns him to leave them alone, to not risk her and his soul, but can he?
Overall I really liked this series. I wasn’t sure to start, it was a little odd. But after a while, that is
what I liked about it the most. It was different from any other vampire book I’ve read in the past.
The first few pages in book 1 can be a struggle. The way Gallen talks about sex and his male
parts is off putting, but if you stick with it you soon understand why. Vampires can’t have sex.
Hundreds of years stuck. That changes if you have an awake watcher in you, which happens
when Gallen meets his mate. The chemistry between them was on point and a fun read. A
definite 4 stars. Book 2 was 3 stars for me. Although I liked all the characters there was a lot of
sex for the sake of it with no chemistry to speak of. I don’t like that, not even in erotica. And the
last book was no doubt my favorite. We get to know Sariel pretty well in the first two books and it
is hard not to feel for him.
I would give the series a 4 stars overall :)

The Cursed King (Inferno Rising #4) by Abigail Owen

This series has been an absolutely delight and I am so glad I've read it. The Rogue King , the first book in the series is still very much my favorite. I discovered Abigail Owen through that book and have read a few of her other books since, this series -obviously-, and others. I highly recommend you all give this wonderful author a try. Blurb: He will burn. She will rise. Airk Azdajah, the rightful King of the White Clan, spent half a millennium being tortured by the false High King Pytheios. The only reason he’s alive is a curse— the man to kill Airk will be consumed in his own fire. Which is why Pytheios kept Airk alive, barely, unable to shift in his prison cage, driving the creature half of him into madness. Airk escaped, but he’ll never be truly free. What good is a king who can never let his feral dragon loose, never fly, and never lead his people? He’s better off dead. Angelika Amon is the last unmated phoenix. The problem? She has no powers. Zip. Zilch. Angelika hates bein

The Warlord (Rise of the Warlords #1) by Gena Showalter

I discovered Gena Showalter long after her Lords of the Underworld series had started. I have those books, but I haven't read them all. I have however read many of her other smaller series. My favorite still the one that introduced me to her books in 2018, Shadow and Ice  (Gods of War).  The Warlord  is the start of a new series, but if you have read Lords of the Underworld  some bits will connect. It is not necessary you read them though, gods know I have not. They sit on my middle shelf and I stare at them daily, does that count? hehe Here is the blurb: For centuries, Taliyah Skyhawk has prepared to become Harpy General, leader of the deadliest female army in existence. One of the requirements? Remain a virgin. But, for a chance to save her people, she must wed the fearless leader of the Astra Planeta, Alaroc Phaethon. The time has come for Roc to sacrifice another virgin bride to his god. There has never been a woman alluring enough to tempt him from his path. No warrioress po

Promises and Pomegranates (Monsters & Muses #1) by Sav R. Miller

I was very excited about this read. The reviews are good, the people recommending it were people whose recommendations I have liked in the past. And in the end, at did like this one. But I will confess from the start that Promises and Pomegranates  did not blow me away. Blurb: Elena To most, Kal Anderson is a villain. Harbinger of death, keeper of souls, frequenter of nightmares. Doctor Death. Hades incarnate. They say he stole me. Usurped my fiancĂ© and filled the cracks in my heart with empty promises. Imprinted his crimson fingerprints on my psyche and tried to set me free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was my choice to stay. Kal To most, Elena Ricci is an innocent. Goddess of springtime, lover of poetry, angel of my nightmares. Little one. Persephone personified. They say I ruined her. Shattered her virtue and devoured her soul like a succulent pomegranate. Embedded my evil as deep as I could possibly get and tried to set her free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was she
