Sometimes you must fall before you can fly free.
Despite having had a rough life, Seth has a big heart. After spending nearly ten years sleeping rough on the streets of New York, he’s managed to get himself freelance work and a place to live. But his new-found security is about to be torn apart, as the horrors of his past come back to haunt him in the worst possible way.
Dante was sent to watch over a young Seth when his mother died. As an angel, he had many rules to follow. The most important of which was to never fall in love—especially when it involves a human who is your charge. For the last ten years, Dante has kept his feelings for Seth hidden. That is until the night Seth’s past catches up with him.
When Seth is murdered, their destinies are changed forever. Feelings and emotions come to the surface, but will the rules that govern the afterlife keep Dante and Seth apart for eternity, or will they be able to find their happily ever after together?

Seth kept the last cup of coffee, now barely lukewarm, for the man who always sat alone, distant from the rest. There was something about him that mesmerized Seth in a way he couldn’t describe. It was probably the man’s eyes, which were a vivid shade of blue that pierced even the darkest night. He sat on the same bench every night, huddled in a tatty black trench coat.
“Seth.” Blue Eyes nodded his thanks as he wrapped his hands around the cup Seth handed to him.
“It’s not very warm, I’m afraid.”
Blue Eyes shrugged, never taking his gaze off Seth as he sipped the coffee. His dark hair fell to his shoulders in waves, framing his handsome face. His olive skin tone made him appear healthier than the rest, although Seth was reasonably sure that was deceptive. A short beard and mustache helped further define his broad chin and sculpted cheekbones. Seth thought to ask his name, but couldn’t convince the question to leave his lips.
He was always like that around Blue Eyes: tongue-tied and awkward. The man was incredibly gorgeous, and Seth couldn’t help but be physically attracted to him. Maybe in another lifetime, under very different circumstances, he would have the confidence to ask Blue Eyes more about himself; discover the mysteries sparkling in the depths of his eyes. But things were what they were and showing interest in the man was wholly inappropriate. So, instead of asking Blue Eyes his name, he uttered a goodbye and turned to go.
First, I must mention how much I love the cover for this book. It fits very well with the story, and was striking enough to interest me for the story before I even read the synopsis. Once I started reading, I immediately took a liking to both Seth and Dante.
Seth is a character for whom it’s easy to feel with his past and with the circumstances in which he finds himself due to something he observed as a teen. It’s also easy to empathize with Dante—after watching over Seth for so long and developing feelings for him, you can’t help but want to cheer them on for a happy ending. Once Seth dies and things start to get weird, it makes things a lot more complicated.
I found myself on the fence about Killian, another angel, as well as Cal, someone Seth helped while he was alive but who also comes into play one he’s dead. Both of them irritated me for different reasons. Killian it was his frankly immature plays at seducing Dante, especially when Dante keeps outright telling him no. That Killian kept going there, and that Dante kept letting it get to him was a bit aggravating. With Cal, the feeling was more elusive, it’s hard to say more without getting spoiler-y.
There were some inconsistencies in the story, and some points were repetitive when going from Seth’s point of view to Dante’s and vice versa since things were reiterated as each character went back over things. But there’s enough going on to still keep readers’ attention while they work on taking down the bad guy (the Doctor).
Fans of paranormal M/M romance will want to check out For You I Fall, and for me this hovered between 3.5 and 4 stars (so let’s split the difference for 3.75). It does have my interest piqued for more in the series, so I’ll be checking out the next book to see where the authors take things. This book is meant for readers 18+ for adult language and sexual content.
