Overview

It's really hard to save a guy's life when he keeps running away from you...

You might be asking yourself why I’m waving an inflatable penis in the air and screaming at the top of my lungs. If I took time to explain, Declan Moss would get hit by a bus.

Let me back up. I didn’t ask for this. I was perfectly happy—and perfectly sane—before I was tasked with keeping Declan Moss alive. It was a thankless job until the moment that my panties dropped and his delicious smirk found his way in between my thighs.

Hello, toe-curling ecstasy. Goodbye, professional boundaries. And suddenly, there’s a new danger to avoid: the falling of my heart.



From the New York Times Bestselling author of HOLLYWOOD DIRT, BLACK LIES, and BLINDFOLDED INNOCENCE comes a fresh and funny romance that will knock you over. Autumn Jones thinks she's a guardian angel... but he just thinks she's crazy. Find out what happens when these enemies turn lovers, and a hilarious cast of characters keeps everything up in the air!

This was my first book by Alessandra Torre and I have no idea why that is the case. I don’t think I have ever listened to a story quite like this before. I was absolutely captivated by the tale that Alessandra Torre wove. The narration by Tor Thom and Charley Ongel was good and made for an enjoyable listen. To say that Autumn is a quirky character may well be the understatement of the year; in fact, poor Declan thinks she is a crazy stalker. This was a fun story, although having said that there were certainly some serious moments that had my heart palpitating on occasion. There were times that I laughed out loud, and yet the narrators brought tears to my eyes with their performance as well when tragedy struck. I can’t remember the last time I cheered for a couple to get their happily ever after but I badly wanted everything to work out for Autumn and Declan. I absolutely fell hard for Declan and wow he really stepped up once Autumn explained the situation to him. He was caring and compassionate and made me swoon. The chemistry between Declan and Autumn was intense and I loved their banter. The secondary characters were just as entertaining and I though Mr Oink was outstanding.

A delightfully quirky and sexy read filled with laugh out loud moments! 4.5 stars! I totally fell in love with Autumn and Declan! This story is a super fun, outside the box read from Alessandra Torre. Here's a girl who is convinced she's this guy's guardian angel, doing all kinds of hilarious things to make sure he stays safe. What would you think about someone if you saw them waving around a giant inflatable penis? Hmmm, maybe that person is off their rocker? Declan completely captured my heart with the things he does and says throughout this book. He seemed to take it in stride pretty well that this quirky, crazy girl is convinced she's meant to keep him safe. Readers are going to fall in love with these two characters, not to mention some other pretty adorable side characters who rounded out this story in a very entertaining way. There was a twist I didn't see coming, and appearances from characters we've met and fell in love with in past Alessandra books. I highly recommend picking up Tripping on a Halo. It's filled with funny moments, some hilarious one liners from Autumn, witty banter and awesome characters. It's also a very emotional story, if you're the emotional sort like I am, be prepared to shed some tears as well. Alessandra has definitely got a hit on her hands!!

Tripping on a Halo is a fun, light-hearted romance for the most part. There are some hitches in the path to true love but nothing that would make you believe the HEA was unattainable. As you already know I love heroines who are a little on the quirky side and completely embrace their crazy Autumn is exactly that type of character. She’s so adorable and warm hearted, you just can’t help loving her. Autumn is struggling with the death of her mother and the conflicting financial situation she know finds herself in. When a number of situations link together all surrounding the delicious Declan, Autumn naturally assumes she is Declan’s guardian angel!!!! The plot thread was, if I am completely honest, totally predictable, especially as Alessandra places deliberately unsubtle hints throughout the narrative. However, the predictability does not detract from the connection to the story or the characters. With Autumn determined to protect Declan, she has to ensure she is aware of his whereabouts and routine. This leads to Declan convincing himself he has a stalker!!! Comedy gold in the making for their random encounters. Nevertheless, there is a definite feel of karma working it’s magic between Autumn and Declan. Each seemingly random encounter and it’s timing adding to the connection between the pair. Tripping on a Halo will warm your heart as well as tickle your funny bone

Tripping on a Halo is the perfect mix of playful fun and emotional. Rom Coms aren't usually my favorite, but Alessandra's writing and development of characters had me laughing out loud at parts and definitely kept me hooked. If you're looking for a fun, sweet story I'd recommend Tripping on a Halo!

I wasn't sure what to expect when I started this book, although I knew I'd love it because I love all the author's work. She has writing quirky characters down to a science. This is such a great story. Autumn and Declan are an unlikely duo and Declan has every reason to run the other way when he sees Autumn. But then circumstances bring them together and they discover they had the wrong impression of each other. Great story. Lots of laugh out loud moments!

Tripping On A Halo by Alessandra Torre is a romantic comedy. This is a fun read that will have you laughing out loud. Autumn believes she is Declan's guardian angel. Declan believes she is his stalker. These characters are great together. Autumn is quirky and unique. Declan is straight laced and has a touch of OCD. You will love this book from start to finish. It will make you laugh and touch your heart. This author continues to surprise me and keep me intrigued.

After reading this book I'm convinced Alessandra can write anything. She could write a haiku on how to wash dishes and it would be the best haiku ever written. Seriously.....SO MUCH TALENT!! Autumn and Declan made me LOL....Mr Oinks and his farting....again....LOLing. But this book wasn't just funny, it was heart warming, well thought out and engrossing. Grab your favorite drink and settle in when you read this. You're not going to want to move until it's done. Bravo Ms Torre on another 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️read!!!

Cuh-ute. While this is a romcom, there were some sad parts. I actually cried a few times! I wasn’t sure what the book was even about, as Alessandra Torre is an automatic 1-click author for me, and I didn’t even read the blurb. So I was a little confused on what was going on at first. I just though Autumn was some crazy chic. Which she is. Hahaha. But I adored Autumn! I think I’m in love with Declan, though. Overall, a cute book. I love epilogues, and this one was sweet. Put a smile on my face!

I love Autumn and Declan! This book was everything! It was sweet,funny, and addicting. Autumn was amazing!! She was quirky and had this huge heart. Declan and Autumn together were fireworks! I couldn't put the book down! Loved it!!!

I love a book that embraces the craziness! This is a fun story with a few serious moments. The characters are perfectly suited and I laughed throughout the story. Autumn was an absolute scream, I loved her brand of crazy, she had an answer and justification for everything. Declan seemed to just embrace it all once she explained the situation. He was adorable. Fun side characters, it’s a really engaging story and I found I couldn’t put it down once I got started.

Hallelujah! What a fun, quirky, unique, in-the-moment story!!! Sometimes authors surprise you with something you didn’t really know you wanted to read. This is one of those books. It’s a heavenly affair with all kinds of heat flowing in between. Autumn and Declan are on a star-crossed path and nothing is going to slow it down…..not even a giant, plastic…oh yeah…..

A gem of a book! Oh my goodness, this was so cute. It's funny, adorable, and with just the right amount of mind games by the amazing Ms. Torre to make you crave more. Tripping on a Halo finds you falling for the adorkably beautiful Autumn, who is on a quest to stalk, er, save Declan. He just isn't aware of the saving aspect. This book hooks you from the beginning, and leaves you wanting to read another light-hearted Torre book stat. I loved it!
Heather Mitchell More than 1 year ago
This book was so stinkin’ cute. Autumn believes she’s a guardian angel to a man she’s never met. Declan Moss is an architect who notices that someone is always following him. Autumn is following Declan to make sure he stays safe. She has a feeling that it’s her responsibility to keep him alive. Declan thinks he has a crazy stalker. I adored both Autumn and Declan. Autumn was so cute and funny. Declan was pretty sweet and understanding. I also enjoyed Autums relationship with her sister. I laughed often while reading this book. I will definitely be telling all of my reading buddies to read this one.

A Review of Tripping on a Halo by Alessandra Torre Autumn and Declan - 5++++ Stars I ABSOLUTELY loved the character of Autumn and the cover portrays her to a T. Although she has been through a lot in her life, she has a very positive attitude toward life and those that she cares about. After she comes to the conclusion that she is a guardian angel, she becomes obsessed with protecting Declan, who was a stranger to her at the time. With her snooping, she learns almost everything about him and is content to stay off his radar, but he is more than aware that she has been following him. There are twists and turns galore in this storyline and more than a few tears were shed, but this is definitely one of those books that I will keep to re-read multiple times. Make sure you pick it up at your earliest convenience. ********** **Honest review voluntarily provided from a Complimentary Copy**

Tripping on a Halo was a unique romantic comedy that had a smile on my face 90% and had my heart hurting yet bursting at the seams with love the other 10%. You definitely will not expect what is thrown your way. I throughly enjoyed this book and the good crazy it entailed! 5 read it over again and again stars!

While I found the story to be overall enjoyable, I never fully connected. I liked Declan a lot. Autumn was ok. I didn’t really feel the chemistry between them. The story was cute and funny, but considering this is a rom-com, it took a surprising turn. The epilogue was cute and the story wrapped up nicely.

Reading this book was absolutely heavenly! I am a huge fan of this author because she is known for writing books with steamy, sexy plots, some that have some suspense with twists and turns and others that are just drool worthy. She constantly throws me for a loop and keeps me on my toes because I never know what to expect from her. Imagine my delighted surprise when she knocks it out of the park (AGAIN!!!) with a fresh and unique Rom-Com like none I’ve ever read before, and I’ll bet you haven’t either. I don’t want to give away too much because that would ruin the fun and joy you will experience when you pick this book up. I will tell you that you will be laughing out loud with Autumn’s antics and her perception of her role in the world. Declan is not only swoon worthy and charming, he’s the perfect counterpart to Autumn -which gives the story fantastic banter, ridiculously sweet and funny scenes, a dash of struggle, chemistry you can get on board with and perfectly sums it up to an all out light, fun and fuzzy feeling read. I would highly recommend this book and any other book by this author. She has yet to disappoint!

This book is exactly what I needed in my life right now. It is a light-hearted, lol funny, witty, fun read. I couldn't put it down because it just made me so happy to see how the story would progress. This kind of book reminds me why I love to read so much. It was the perfect mix of romance, sexy chemistry, quirky delusion and shock all in one book. You will fall in love with Autumn and Declan's unique, quirky, albeit delusional and sexy love story. Grab this book now, you will not be disappointed!

TOAH is a fun, charasmatic read and totally different that what I've come to expect from Alessandra Torre. The characters, Autumn and Declan, are fun to watch develop and interact with each other. They've got chemistry, heart and quirks. Oh boy are these two quirky! But they work. Once they get together you see how each other works for them. And the micro mini Mr. Oinks! Ok he was just a super fun animal addition! On the edge of gooey sweetness, this is a total laugh out loud but still sexy read. If you are a fan of AT already, get ready because this is totally different from her normal writing. If you are new to AT, this is a perfect book to start with, as it is light and fun and a great read.

I can honestly say I haven’t read a book by Alessandra that I didn’t fall in love with. Tripping on a Halo is no different! I was instantly hooked and loved every minute of Declan and Autumn’s story. From the laughter (literally laughing out loud at times) to the romance to the serious situations, this book is absolutely perfect!! I cannot wait to read what Alessandra releases next!!!

What a fun book! Chloe believes she's a guardian angel to one man. Declan Moss. Declan believes he has a stalker. Declan's best friend slash business partner thinks he's just paranoid. Chloe's sister and shrink thinks this is her way of mourning her mothers loss. All of that combined made for one comedic story that will also really pull at your heart strings. Chloe was such a fun character. She's quirky, fun and isn't afraid to do anything. She has a pet pig, wears Wonder Woman t-shirts, creates dog scrapbooks for an elderly neighbor and takes the protection of a practical stranger to new heights. Declan is an architect who started his own firm with his best friend. He's all business and a touch OCD with cleaning. He recently broke up with his cheating girlfriend who he thought he would marry someday. No one has sparked his interest since. The last person he ever expected to be attracted to was his stalker. I really enjoyed this book. I'm such a fan of quirky characters and Chloe was so fun to read about. While Declan was more straight-laced, his reactions to her added to my overall enjoyment of this couple. As much fun as I had with this book, it also had emotional moments. This was pretty much the total package!

All the belly laugh stars for this smart RomCom that had my bursts of laughter coming at regular intervals in between the constant chuckles. Freaking hilarious! The main characters, Autumn and Declan, are too loveable for words! The supporting characters were so distinguishable and endearing, having their own quirks and nuances that added perfectly to the humor. A special character award goes to the precious Mr. Oinks and his flatulates! Tripping on a Halo is brilliantly crafted. There is a chapter that put me in an abrupt tailspin at an unexpected moment causing me to publicly hyperventilate and bawl like a baby at a very inappropriate time. When you're ready for a good laugh, don’t miss this one. It’s magnificent! I loved it!
