Romancing the Novel

While I am an avid reader, I primarily stick to romances. I would say that my favorites are historical romances, but I love romance novels in every category.

Fallen - Celeste Bradley

Well, considering this was Celeste Bradley’s first novel, I gave it 3 stars. It wasn't a bad book, just too much. The book tried too hard to be angsty. The only thing missing was the amnesia theme and a secret baby.
Don't get me wrong, there was a lot of great stuff packed in this story. The heroine was well written and stayed true to her character. The hero swung back and forth too much for me. From rake to sweet & kind, to jerk, to rake, to has never been a rake. Loving, hateful... uggg
He was a little too Sybil: The Classic True Story of a Woman Possessed by Sixteen Personalities for me.
I also was not thrilled with the ending. It was a cop out. Hero's father and grandfather were mean and vicious people, who I would have liked to actually see them get their deserved rewards.
