Fallen from Grace: A Fight for Light Crossover novel by Nikki Landis

Paranormal YA romance is a very popular genre and there are many books out there being devoured by I would think many women. It isn't my favorite genre, probably a bit too old and cynical now. However I do read all genres (apart from erotica) so I try and be objective and judge based on story, characters and quality of writing. I think this book would appeal to the YA market, but the story was a bit sugary sweet at times. Four stars.

This is a very romantic story about a seemingly normal girl and the angel that falls in love with her when she is involved in a car crash. Emily thinks she has her future all planed out. She is in college and has a loving fiancée in Jarrod, but in an instant everything changes. She sees the car she is in heading straight into a truck and thinks she is going to die. A gorgeous angel in the shape of Bash saves her, and she too falls in love.
Both parties have a monumental struggle on her hand. Emily needs to find a way to break up with her fiancée Jarrod who she loves and cares deeply for. Bash needs to decide if he wants to go against the will of God and become involved with a mortal. Meanwhile the forces of evil have seen something in Emily too; a beautiful pure spirit and they want her soul.
This story is very romantic and you get swept along by Emily and Bash’s impossible romance. There is also some creepy dark action as the death dealer and the reaper start coming after Emily. If I had one criticism it would be the amount of hugs and kisses, it was early on clear the characters had a great affinity towards each other. I’m probably more of an action girl. Well written and a good standalone addition to a series which I believe counts about 10 books. Great for fans of romance and paranormal, suitable for YA.
