Title: Beautiful Downfall
Author: Scarlett Jade
Genre: New Adult Paranormal Romance (18+)
Camille Taylor’s life fell apart after the tragic accident that haunts her every waking moment. She became a recluse, only looking forward to each day with the hope of having those dreams… A handsome man with dark hair and wicked eyes visits her at night, keeping her company as she struggles to get past the sudden death of her beloved parents. There is something undeniable about him. She is drawn to the mysterious man like a moth to a flame. This couldn’t be insanity, but it can’t be real, either…
Casey Philips has his own damaged past that put him in a delicate situation. He is an angel working for redemption, and has been watching over Camille since that horrible day where her mother and father were stolen away. It’s all God’s plan, they are fine and well now, but the task of helping this lovely human get past her grief to move on in her life is quickly taking a wrong turn. She’s stunning and plays the key role in his every thought. Angels aren’t suppose to fall in love with their clients. If he continues he could lose everything and fall from God’s good graces. But if he stops he will lose the most important person in his life.
With every thing on the line, Casey and Camille set out on a life-altering adventure to discover if love really can overcome anything.
I have read several books with angels and this was a totally unique and refreshing take on them. I liked the story line and all the twists and turns throughout which gave the story depth.
Camille and Casey were really great characters. They each had their own issues to work through but also helped each other (sometimes indirectly). Camille is shy and struggles to get through each day. Casey is sweet but also the hot brooding type. I also really enjoyed Sarah. She cracked me up and she was a great friend to Camille.
I haven’t really read any books where the prospective is constantly jumping back and forth within a scene. I did struggle with this at first but I quickly adapted. It actually was nice to see a lot of the book through both Camille and Casey’s eyes.
This was a really sweet love story and I truly enjoyed it. If you are looking for something not too heavy in the drama department, then you should give it a try. I’m giving it a 4 out of 5. Great job!
