Halo (Fallen Angel #1) by Ella Frank & Brooke Blaine
Massive world tours. Over a hundred million albums sold. Groupies galore.
Every day is a party for Viper and the guys of TBD, the biggest rock band in the world. But it all comes to a screeching halt when the lead singer walks out of the studio one day and never comes back.
Ear-blistering vocals. Butchered lyrics. Fame chasers.
After months of lackluster auditions, Viper, the lead guitarist and resident bad boy of the group, is ready to find solace in the bottom of a bottle. Time’s running out and the pressure’s on to find a new singer, but it isn’t until an angel walks through the door that the band’s prayers are answered.
Charismatic. Talented. Magic behind the mic. Halo is everything they’ve been looking for.
With a voice to match his stunning good looks, it isn’t long before Viper’s taking notice. But there are several reasons this is a bad idea:
1. Interpersonal relationships in the band are discouraged
2. Viper has already broken rule #1—big mistake
3. Halo is straight
Too bad Viper’s body isn’t listening to his head—at least not the one on his shoulders. But you can’t fake chemistry, not onstage and certainly not off it, and Viper and Halo? They have it in spades.
As both men try to resist the fire blazing between them, and the band is forced to reinvent themselves, it’ll be a complicated rise back to the top. But from the ashes of what was, something beautiful is born. Something better. And when the world finally sees Halo stretch his wings, they’ll discover what it’s like to fall for an angel.
Look at that cover. I could not have pictured a better image for Halo. The man if gorgeous!
Of course, Viper is obsessed with him, I’m obsessed with him and I know he’s fictional.
The series is a little light on the whole sex, drugs and rock and roll background, but the sexy times between these two is off the charts. I knew Halo was straight and I was rooting for Viper to get what he wanted. Halo was very sweet but was also more naïve than I would have expected with his family being as heavily into the performing arts as they are. But it works.
This is the first book in this trilogy, so there is a lot of background building. There’s enough of a story between Halo and Viper to keep you hooked and even with the semi-cliffhanger at the end, I wasn’t disappointed that I would have to wait for the next book.
