BOOK REVIEW: HALO (Fallen Angel Book 1)

Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆
Smut factor: 🔥🔥🔥🔥
Author: Ella Frank and Brooke Blaine
Genre: Romance, M/M Romance


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.


Brittanys Review

One of my favorite things about reading and reviewing books is finding new to me authors. I was in the market for a new read, and when this rockstar romance popped up. I saw it was not only a rockstar romance but had an age gap trope and M/M, I knew I had to give it a chance. M/M love stories I think are some of the hardest to write, and in Halo by Ella Frank and Brooke Blaine, they deliver tenfold.

Halo is charming with a boy next door personality. He’s the kind of guy that you don’t care if you’re his girlfriend or his best friend, but you know that you need to be a part of his life. Viper is everything a rock ‘n’ roll bad boy is supposed to be and then some. His crass, no bullshit attitude had me both loving and hating him. Then there was the undeniable chemistry between Halo and Viper. The building of it was so strong that I swear sexual tension was oozing off the pages. Halo and Vipers love story sucked me into their world and left me needing more.

Since this was not a HEA but an HFN we will have to wait for the next installment of this story which comes out at the end of March, and I for one cannot wait. I’ve added Ella Frank and Brooke Blaine to my must-read authors list, and I encourage you to do the same.
