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.

Not the best by this author but a good story none the less. I enjoyed this even though I don’t like horror. The story was fairly predictable until the twist at the end that made it all worth it.

The only negatives I have to say about this book, are that it had perhaps too much detail. Normally I wouldn't complain about more details, but these were mundane details like the process of picking out an outfit and other things that didn't really add to the story. That being said, the book did pull me in. I was confused at the beginning as to what was going on, and when I finally realized that either Alex or Samuel was a "bad guy" I found myself early on routing for my favorite. I love that there was some closure at the end of the book, and yet you could see the potential for another book. That way you're not left feeling like you're dangling, but you'd still be interested in reading more when the 2nd book came out. Also, I feel like this was a different spin on the whole "fallen angel" craze than I had read before. I admit I haven't read tons, but the ones that I've read were not much like this book at all. Overall Ms. Morgan has the start to what could be a great series.

I am such a nerd for stories on Angels and Demons. Many stories have been told of the classic battle between Heaven and Hell...but with different twists. And, in Fallen, I was hooked! I absolutely enjoyed Julie Morgan's twist on this classic theme. Her characters are well developed in which they each have specific individual personalities that I came to understand and love!  I don't like to reveal much and spoil it for others, but I loved the character development for each of Julie's characters as the story unfolded with the hidden dangers that lurked in the darkness and budding romance that came out from the light. By the end of the book, I was very eager to read the next book in this fascinating series! If you love paranormal/angels & demons genre, then this is a series worth reading!

Fallen (Chronicles of Fallen #1) by Julie Morgan 5 out of 5 stars Would you take a plunge from Heaven to keep the one you love? Or would you dive into the depths of Hell to save them from an eternity in the fiery pits? Alex did both in order to have Lisa in his life. Lisa has been working her dream job at a PR firm in New York and steadily climbing the corporate ladder over the years. Everything is going wonderfully until her boss begins hinting around at wanting some added benefits of his own and making moves toward achieving his goal. After a few unexplained events and some very disturbing occasions in which Lisa swore she was hallucinating, she meets Alex and is taken on a courtship like no other. Alex is handsome, charming, fun, and incredibly sweet with his bright blue eyes and easy smile so it's no wonder that Lisa (and the reader) begins to fall for him quickly. What she doesn't realize is that Alex is not exactly what he seems and neither is her boss, Samuel. She has every reason to question life as she knows it. Always trust your gut when it comes to first impressions and those sneaky feelings you get from time to time!! I absolutely LOVE the imagery that Morgan provided in Fallen. While reading Lisa and Alex's story, I strolled through Central Park, gazed upon Lady Liberty, and dined at a very unique Greek restaurant where the employees provide the entertainment while you enjoyed your meal. Third person stories usually don't hold my attention very well due to their limited insight but this one had me captivated from the first page. I'm a sucker for details and this one is definitely one of the best!!!!!!! And the smokin' hot seduction/attempts weren't too bad either!!! **Honest review given in exchange for free a ebook.** Meagan, My Secret Book Spot

Actually 3.5 stars. I really liked the overall plot. It was a bit different than any other Angel/Demon book I have read so far and I loved the author's depiction of Hell and the demons in it! I would have liked some more back story on the major characters but Alex and Samuel were great and kept me wanting to read more. My biggest issue with the book was that there was way to much detail. There were points where I felt like I was reading a clothing description in a magazine and in other parts the characters every single movement was so overly described I found myself skimming ahead. That being said it got really interesting about half way through and we were left with one heck of an ending! I can only imagine the chaos to come in the next book. Overall I enjoyed the book and would definitely be interested in finding out what happens next.

I was given this book as an ARC for an honest review.  I gave this book 5 angelic stars! This is the first book in the Chronicles of the Fallen series.  And it is Alex and Lisa's story.  Lisa wants it all.. The perfect everything. Life, job, and boyfriend. When she gets an opportunity to have the perfect job she jumps at it. She is so ecstatic when she gets the job, and she works hard to get the job done.  A few years later, she starts to have encounters that are weird she starts seeing things, and hearing things. She sees red eyes, and feels like she is being touched. She has nightmares. And that is just the beginning.  Her boss makes passes at her all the time and it is just getting to be a little weird.  Enters Alex he is a breath of fresh air. He is everything she could ever ask for in a guy, and he seems to want her. He makes her feels special and loved and she wants him like no other. But she still feels a pull to her boss, and one that she can't seem to fight.  What will happen if she gives in? Or should I say when she gives in?  Will everything she has been working for become worthless? Will she find out too late just what she is fighting?  And where does that leave Alex? Will he be able to save her in time? And if he does will he tell her the secret that he has been keeping from her?  I loved this book! I love books about Angels. Julie had me captivated from the first paragraph that I read. Lisa was a beautiful but naive woman. She expects as much honesty as she gives and that is not the way life is sometimes. It is manipulated and twisted to the way the world wants it. If your not careful you can fall into someone else's trap. And that is what happened with Lisa, before she knows it she is too far gone to fix any of it.  I am only going to say that I love Alex, he does the ultimate sacrifice for her.  Without even thinking about it. He just does it! NOT for one SECOND did he ever doubt what he was going to do. Just bam ! DONE! To me that is the true meaning of the word LOVE. Julie spun this story so well and left me wanting more. And there is a slight cliff hanger at the end but it is nothing that you can't get over.  It will leave you breathless, and in awe of a love that was meant to be. A beautifully written story about forbidden love, and true love, and evil !!  Just when you think you have it figured out. Watch out! You just might be surprised! Thank you Julie for an amazing story! Can't wait to read what you have up next for Lisa and Alex!! <3

Okay so let me just start off by saying that the reason this is a 2 star read for me instead of a 1 star is because the potential is there. It's obvious the author has an outline, a direction of where she wanted the story to go, but the execution of it wasn't very good. I feel like I should also mention that PNR is my absolute FAVORITE genre to read. I'm especially intrigued by stories of fallen angels, demons, and the whole battle of good vs. evil. So the problem isn't that I was reading something out of my comfort zone. I was immediately drawn to this book by the synopsis alone and couldn't wait to start reading, but as I mentioned above I was disappointed. I had quite a few issues with this book making it extremely difficult to enjoy. I typically love books written in the third person, but I had a hard time getting into this one. Mostly because every other sentence started with "Lisa..." or "Her/She..." making it more like a sequence of events instead of a smoothly told story. I was really trying to overlook the awful third person narrative but it got to be too much and towards the middle it just became full blown chaotic and all over the place. It wasn't flowing much to begin with but it completely went off track by the middle to end. The end of the book had me even more frustrated. It's a retelling of all the "action" that took place in the middle. Everything you've already read is recapped. Whereas most authors would just say that the character told another what happened, in this one the reader gets told AGAIN what happened.  I'm sure that Ms. Morgan was going for a suspenseful intriguing read here but everything is spelled out for you, you're not allowed to draw your own conclusions based on a suspenseful buildup, you're just given the info and key details are revealed matter of factly. I'm not asking for a cryptic story line or anything too complicated, I just want to be surprised, shocked, awed, etc. by all the big revelations. That didn't happen here. And as the action picked up it just got to be too chaotic and confusing. There's no smooth transition between scenes, it's rough and rushed and just cuts from one scene to the next. The characters weren't believable at all and need way more developing. Their interactions with each other and everything that occurs between them is just plain awkward and forced.  I'm not trying to be harsh with my review, I'm just stating the facts.  I believe in giving HONEST feedback on everything I read. Whether I like a book or not I'm going to let you know. I did read this book in its entirety and really can't recommend it. I'm not even interested in reading the next book, even with all the unanswered questions in the air.  *I received an ARC for promotional purposes*

(I received a copy for a blog tour) The story was incredible - it mixed a steamy romance with a battle between good vs evil.  I thought the story was well written and the characters were well developed. Lisa Adam was a great character and was believable - she was a hard worker and has her eye on being a success.  And her reaction when she first meets Alex was hilarious and also realistic (but I would not have been graceful as she was and probably would have fallen on my face!). It is hard for me to believe that this is Julie Morgan's first novel! She does a great job of writing scenes that made me jump and had my skin crawling.  But I did find at times that the author over described things (for example - taking the dress off the hanger, stepping into the dress, zipping up the dress, etc) which at first made me want to stop reading.  But a friend encouraged me to continue on, which I am glad I did. If it weren't for the over description at times I would have given this a higher rating.  But I am looking forward to reading the next book (that cliffhanger of an ending makes me want to know what happens!!). If you are a fan of paranormal romances mixed with action then you should definitely read this book!
