Ceri thinks she sees angels … everywhere. She struggles to keep separate what feels like two very different sides to her life. As a manager in an advertising company she’s been working with the gorgeous Alex for two years. The have a friendship based upon the image she portrays whilst she’s at work and it helps to keep her sane. One mad, crazy night spent sharing their secrets and a lot of wine result in them ending up in bed together and their relationship changes. When Alex explains that the reason he doesn’t date is because someone broke his heart, how can Ceri admit that she feels a deep connection to him?

Ceri knows she’s different. What she doesn’t fully appreciate, is that her task in life is to correct a series of incidents that affect some of the people’s lives with whom she comes into contact. She’s simply putting right little errors that could ripple outwards and change the course of their destiny. When she finds herself getting pulled into things that happen around her, how can she prove that she really has made a difference? Is it all in her head?

She’s alone for a reason; she’s not meant to fall in love in her earthly life. Alex is supposed to cross paths with her and help Ceri during a phase where she begins to question the signs she’s being given. It’s meant to be a turning point for them both—but in opposite directions. They are destined to travel very different paths … but Ceri doesn’t know that and neither does Alex …

Paranormal My Review

Falling: HarperImpulse Paranormal Romance Novella (Angels Among Us, Book 1)‘Falling’ is the first in a trilogy about Ceri, whose name gives us a clue to her true identity. The connection with Ceri is immediate; she’s a good person, who wants to make a difference but struggles because she feels like a cuckoo in the nest. Ceri experiences extraordinary contact in an understated, believable way. Like Ceri, you are aware something out of the ordinary is going on but it’s in your peripheral vision and you can’t quite make it out. It’s scary, if you don’t acknowledge it; maybe you can put it down to a daydream.

Ceri’s relationship with her twin Seb, is interesting, they are yin and yang. Seb struggles to understand the ‘other’ side of Ceri but loves her anyway. Alex is a work colleague but their bond is stronger than that, even though they don’t socialise out of work. Desperation makes Ceri share her secret with Alex who has one of his own which he can’t share with her. The ending is happy for now but you question how long this will be the case with Ceri last experience.

This is a feel good, easy to read story about faith and love in all its forms. I’m looking forward to ‘Forbidden’ the second in the series.

Paranormal My Review

Forbidden (Angels Among Us, #2)Ceri’s realises her true identity but is saddened. It threatens her future with Alex, who she accepts is not the same as her, although he does possess special qualities and is important to her future. Ceri and Alex respond in a totally human way to their situation and the reader is right there with them. hoping they can beat the odds.

Ceri’s new found knowledge makes her gifts more understandable as she begins to fulfil her destiny. There are some wonderfully poignant passages in this story.

Fate intervenes and reveals Alex’s secret. Dramatic irony means the readers know what it is but Ceri doesn’t.

This story has another crescendo ending making me pick up ‘Forever’ the last in the series straight away. I have to know what happens.

 I received a copy of Forbidden from Harper Impulse via NetGalley in return for an honest review. I have included it with my reviews of the other two books in the series, which I bought.

Paranormal My ReviewForever (Angels Among Us #3)The final part of the trilogy picks up where ‘Forbidden’ ends. Alex can’t find Ceri, he should have shared his secret and now the truth has lost him his soul mate. Ceri’s psychic encounter with Alicia bought everything into painfully, clear focus. Ceri can’t cheat destiny. Ceri’s hopelessness in the early chapters of ‘Forever’ is tangible. Her ability to help others becomes the focus of her human existence and mitigates her emotional distress. The story’s poignancy continues and intensifies in this last part and it’s hard to predict, which way fate will take Ceri and Alex and if they have any control over their future. The ending is unexpected and fulfilling but there is a final twist that echoes the title.

I loved reading this uplifting, perceptive series and look forward to the continuation of Ceri’s journey.
