Blog Tour + Review : Bound to Fallen by Stevie J. Cole



Book Title: BOUND TO THE FALLEN 
Author: Stevie J. Cole
Series: Prophecy Trilogy, Book One
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Synopsis

Within all legends, within all myths, lies a glimmer of truth. . . 


Since the beginning of time there have been stories of demons and tales of darkness; creatures that stalk our dreams. Beings we pray in reality will never touch us. It is easily forgotten that evil can be veiled by breathtaking beauty. After all, few things in this world are truly as they seem.


Brooke Davis was well aware that people can pretend to be someone they are not. She'd had several life experiences that had taught her that. When she met Gavin Hunter she thought she knew exactly what kind of man he was - but she couldn't have been more mistaken in her assumption.


Gavin Hunter was successful, dominate, and had an innate weakness for women. A weakness that if not controlled could lead to a dangerous attraction. To make certain that he remained in control he never pursued an innocent mortal. Until Brooke. The temptation she posed to him was a sin he could not deny, a pleasure he wanted to own. His desire for Brooke possessed him.


Brooke and Gavin quickly became entangled within a passionate love founded on deceptions. Not even the darkness could keep his secrets hidden forever, for it was only a matter of time before Gavin’s past would try to tear their love apart. 


Prophecies can rarely be changed, fate seldom turns, and Brooke would soon find herself clinging to sins most would run from. 


There was no escape. She had been bound the moment that he fell.


Review

I normally don't start off my review with the rating I gave, but I'm going to do it this time .. it was a 3.5 rating for me. PLEASE DON'T HATE ME because I will continue to read the rest of the series, I have to know what happens next!

I don't think I've had so many unanswered questions while reading a book, it seriously drove me insane. Lets get to the characters!

Brooke - I loved her and could definitely relate to her. If I were in the same situation minus the fallen boyfriend, I'd be doing the same exact thing as she would. Dreading the working week, trying to avoid my boss(I'm sure we've all done that), and becoming ecstatic for the weekends to hang out with my friends. When it comes to relationships, she has trust issues, but what girl doesn't?! From dating a douchebag that cheated on her and learning that her father wasn't all that much of a perfect husband either. But when it comes to Gavin, man attraction up the wall. I'm sure she would have just stripped him naked every chance she could get. But don't worry, we get plenty of that!

Gavin - extremely beautiful human being that is English (don't call him British, he doesn't like it!). Besides being a Fallen angel, he's got a little dark side of him that he needs to uhm ... yeahhhhhh. You'll just have to read to see what I'm talking about. He's a complete gentleman and I loved how treated Brooke, just the way a lady should be treated. A+ sir! Their relationship is so intense and their intimates were pretty damn hot! And there's plenty of them. Gavin does have a huge struggle keeping his distance from here, it's funny to see them both try, but they obviously both give in. Gavin likes what he's not suppose to have.

I loved Constance (Brooke's BFF), they are EXTREMELY open with each other, more than I am with my close friends. But their banter was hilarious and just the humor I needed for this one. And there's Ashley, chick is CRAZY! I just don't know what to think of her really and what she's getting. She's one of the many mysteries in this book. And creepy-ass Dan, her bossman. He's completely inappropriate and should be fired or have his ass kicked! There's even a mystery to him too, I felt like he plays a bigger part in this story, but I could be completely wrong.

OK. Overall I liked the story of this book, but I thought more would happen. It did keep me intrigued and I was left with a hell of a lot of questions. Now that I had a couple days to take in this book, this one is just setting things up for the next two books. Towards the end, secrets are revealed and Brooke's life will change completely.

I can't even begin to tell you the amount of times when I thought something was going to happen and then it never came, so I was slightly disappointed, but I blame my over-creative imagination. I thought with Gavin being a Fallen, he would have done more Fallen things, I guess ... if that makes any sense. Paranormal is my favorite genre, so I've read so many different books when it comes to angels. I was hoping for some action cause well who doesn't like a good fight starring Grecian God of an Angel!

But Stevie, your writing is AMAZING and I'm definitely look forward to the next installment of this series!

About the Author

Stevie J. Cole

Oh, so many things I could say... but I'll behave.

I grew up in the south listening to a ton of grunge rock. I was forced to pursue an "acceptable profession" by my parents. They refused to let me major in creative writing or theater because they were not "reliable professions".

When I hit 30 I decided to start a bucket list and publishing a book was on the top (followed shortly by meeting a certain celebrity). 

So, here I am with my first novel and working on the second one. The journey of writing Bound to the Fallen has been amazing and allowed me to meet many wonderful individuals.

I hope if you read my work that you will enjoy it. After all, writing is the most amazing magic trick of all... it puts the reader in the mind of the writer (kind of creepy if you think about it). 

I hope you love my little world as much as I do.
