Wouldn’t it be nice to have hot, funny, feisty, rule-breaking angels protecting and fighting your corner? Keeping an eye on those who slip through law enforcement’s fingers?
Well here you go…the Fallen. You’re welcome!
At the age of four, Amy Fox was taken…. She survived….
A week later, another little girl was taken…. She didn’t.
Angry, Amy made a deal with the heavens.
Decades later her lifeless body was found beneath a London commuter train and she became an angel. But for how long? Lusting after her partner, competing with hell warlords, avenging personal scores, and dishing out tough karma on evil exes, crime gangs, traffickers, drug dealers, rapists, abusers, trophy hunters, trolls, and serial killers, all without her units authorization, will have her thrown below ground. Running with a world network of fallen angels, Amy has never worked so hard in her entire earthly life. She has to wonder if making a deal was a mistake.
Content warnings: Graphic description of sexual acts, violence, murder and psychological trauma.

I have been exploring audiobooks bit more during this crazy time in our lives and in the world. Not because I’m out, but because at the end of the day, when I’m stressed and just want a book, my eyes don’t always cooperate, since they are tired. And with the audiobooks I can just relax and enjoy the story.
That’s what I did with this one. I love a good fantasy/paranormal romance. It’s what I write and what I love to read before going to bed. It gets my dreams to an exciting place. Listening to it is a all different experience. And who doesn’t like angel’s stories?
I had previous read S C Cunningham works and enjoyed it. But this was my introduction to the series, as I have not read these books. ‘The Deal’ is book one in the Fallen Angel Series and I really did enjoy it as well. I have to say though, I have to get the book so I can read it and see if I missed something (I don’t trust my mind 100% anyway). Rereading and reentering a story is something I love to do anyway.
By the narrator’s pleasant voice, we enter the world that the author has crafted. It’s not pretty, then again, life rarely is. It’s a strong book and dark too in some ways. It touches various topics that my be triggering for some people, so keep that in mind.
I enjoyed the plot and and I had a couple of moments that surprised me because of some scenes that created a visual. Not a bad thing for me at all, it was actually something that I thought refreshing and different from what I was reading previously.
It was quite intense and emotional, which helped with establishing some connection with characters. I always look forward to that connection.
Overall, I enjoyed it and I’m curious to see where the next book will go.
