About the Book:

Angels aren’t supposed to fall in love, especially with each other. But for the record, you were worth it.”

Grace Tate is a Protection Angel and Vampire Hunter, and she has always followed the rules. But some rules are made to be broken…

Until now the fight against evil has been simple, and falling in love was never part of the plan. So what happens when it’s beyond Grace’s control, and when she least expects it she falls for the wrong person?

All hell breaks loose, that’s what.

At Hopetown Valley High, not everything is as it seems, and the one person Grace thought was her enemy becomes her most important ally.

Blood will be shed, lives will be lost and friendships will be tested. It all comes down to one decision, and when Grace tries to save all those dear to her, she realises not everyone can be—or wants to be—saved.

Book Trailer

 My rating:
Background: Grace and her twin brother Archer are not your normal family, they are a pair of vampire hunters whose sole purpose is to rid the world of evil. Archer is a hunter and Grace is his protection angel who is reincarnated after every cycle. She is a rule follower by nature and has always done her job perfectly... until she begins to fall for a human and then things start to become trouble.
Review: This was a fast read. It had interested characters and all of the paranormal creatures that I like to read about, angels, fallen angels, vampires, and then completely unaware humans like normal.
Grace is a strong female presence and she knows it and her brother is strong willed and stubborn but overall entertaining and cute. The story is told from Grace's and Josh's point of views and normally thy alternate back and forth. Who is Josh you may be asking? Well, he is the human interest of Grace, only she is not supposed to fall in love with humans.
The plot has multiple levels, which I really liked, so it wasn't just the swooning teenage love melodrama, but an interesting fight and protection story as well. Grace and Archer have been killing vampires for a long time, and now they encounter a new type of vampire, one that can walk in the light and who does not kill people. It becomes their duty to protect her from the other vampires who are looking to steal her blood and make themselves all powerful.

This was a good combination of an Angel story with a Vampire story. It was a good mix of both an not too heavy on either paranormal entity. The Angels were both majestic and brooding and the Vampires evil but also very standard when it comes to the vampire lore. The author uses a lot of the same vampire stories in the creation of her vampires and the idea of a light-walker as well. I found it fun to read but a little predicable at times. Grace and her protection angel duties were very interesting to me and I would have liked to learn more about previous protection angel experiences, why now that she wants a human? So I did have some plot questions.
Overall fast and standard YA writing, swooning girls, paranormal plotlines, and easy to read. Great for the beach if you need something to sit in the sun with. (I wasn't at the beach but I was in the sun :))

Review for Sacrifice coming very soon....

Sacrifice - A Fall For Me Prequel by K.A. Last
Series: The Tate Chronicles #0.5
Publication date: May 2013
Genre: YA Paranormal/Fantasy

About the Book:

Sacrifice is a 23,000 word prequel to Fall For Me. It tells the story of Grace and Seth, and what happened in that castle. It is meant to be read after Fall For Me, although it can be read first...

Seth’s heart is breaking. He knows his decision will hurt the one person he keeps breathing for, but he can’t take it anymore. He can’t be near Grace knowing she will always be just out of reach.

Grace is oblivious to Seth’s turmoil. She loves him unconditionally, but not in the way he wants. They both know that in Heaven physical love is forbidden, and to break the rules is to defy everything they’ve ever been taught.

When Grace and Seth are sent on a mission to save a young mother and her unborn child, Grace must face the fact that Seth won’t be returning home. She doesn’t understand Seth’s decision and hates him for it. But what neither of them realise is how big a part that single decision will play in shaping their entire future.

What would you sacrifice for the one you love?
