“Angels aren’t supposed to fall in love, especially with each other. But for the record, you were worth it.”

 Grace Tate is a Protection Angel and Vampire Hunter, and she has always followed the rules. But some rules are made to be broken…

 Until now the fight against evil has been simple, and falling in love was never part of the plan. So what happens when it’s beyond Grace’s control, and when she least expects it she falls for the wrong person?

 All hell breaks loose, that’s what. At Hopetown Valley High, not everything is as it seems, and the one person Grace thought was her enemy becomes her most important ally.

 Blood will be shed, lives will be lost and friendships will be tested. It all comes down to one decision, and when Grace tries to save all those dear to her, she realises not everyone can be—or wants to be—saved.

My Review:

Fall for me is the first book in The Tate Chronicles.  It is a great beginning to a new series.  

Grace is a Protection Angel.  She protects her twin brother, Archer, who is the Hunter.  Together, they hunt vampires to protect the innocent.  The Tate family has been protecting innocents for centuries.   As the protector, Grace is not allowed to indulge in a physical relationship with a human.  When she develops feelings for her classmate, Josh, the council warns her that she would become a fallen angel if she acts upon her feelings.  During the same time, Grace and Archer meet Charlotte, a vampire.  However, Charlotte is no ordinary vampire.  Her soul is pure and she hunts vampires too. They refuse to kill her and offer her protection from other vampires who are hunting Charlotte.   When the council orders Grace to end her relationship with Josh and kill Charlotte, she must make a decision between following her heart and become a fallen angel or follow the council's order. Grace knows the consequences of becoming a fallen angel all to well.  Her former friend, Seth, fell centuries earlier for reason's she doesn't understand.  Seth continues to be a force in her life as he becomes her enemy.  What path will Grace follow? Is Seth really her enemy? How did Charlotte become different from other vampires?  Well, you'll have to read Fall for Me to find out all the answers. 

Fall for Me started out a little slow for me.  However, the pace quickly picked up. There is plenty of action and fighting. All the characters are easy to relate to and and likeable.  Grace is a wonderful character.  She is loyal to her friends and family.  Like most teenagers, she starts to question authority figures and seeks to make her own decisions.  Archer is the over protective brother, who would do anything to protect his sister.  I admit I'm a sucker for love triangles and Fall for Me didn't disappoint in this area.  I loved the complicated love triangle between Grace, Josh, and Seth.  

The writing flowed smoothly making Fall for Me easy to read. I loved the very beginning of the book, when we see Seth fall. This section was beautifully written from his point of view.  The rest of the book alternates between the POV of Grace and Josh. Typically, I'm not a fan of alternating POV; however, it worked really well in this book.  By doing this, it enhanced my reading experience by allowing me to develop a more intense relationship with both characters.

I absolutely loved this book.  I cannot wait to read the next book!  I really want to know how this love triangle plays out.  

The author provided me with a copy of this book for an honest review.
