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 alter the course of many 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. However; 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…
“No one chooses to see angels, why would they?”
This is a romance story that explores the possibility of there being something more than just the ‘here and now’. If that were the case, how would it work? What keeps us on the path determined for us, when we have free will? How would the spirit world link with us as we go about our lives? Love is a powerful emotion, but can it change the course of someone’s destiny? Ceri is ‘Falling’…
This book was very different to how I expected it to be. it was definitely a lot more realistic than i was expecting.
I thought Ceri was an excellent character. I really felt for her. She has clearly affected by everything she’s been through. she is a genuinely good person.
I thought Alex was awesome. They are clearly meant to be together. I absolutely loved hearing his side of the story. I always find it great to see other people’s perspective on things.
Seb and Sheena were excellent. I really liked how Ceri could feel how Seb felt, that they had this special twin bond. Being away from your best friends is hard. After university all my friends went back to their respective home towns and we don’t get to see each other as much. Sometimes that can be a real strain on the relationship. I thought it was really great how even though Sheena is away a lot they never become distant.
For some reason I really don’t trust Mark. I don’t know what it is but I just have this feeling he’s trouble. I’m worried he’s taking advantage of her. Since reading Forbidden I trust Mark a lot more.
I thought Ethan’s explanation of that was happening to Ceri was perfect. He clearly understood what was going on.
I’m looking forward to reading Forbidden as this book ended on a bit of a cliffhanger.
