Review: Falling (Bad Angels #1) by Belinda McBride

Falling isn’t so bad, it’s the landing that hurts.

Just what exactly happens when an angel goes bad?

Stripped of his voice, his memories and his divinity, Rion Hunter falls to Earth in a fiery blaze. After crashing into a muddy sheep pasture in Scotland, the disgraced angel finds himself face-to-face with an unlikely rescuer—a Sidhe-born farmer named Rex.

Rex finds himself rapidly falling for the beautiful angel, which can be risky when the object of your affection just might be psychotic. And if that isn’t enough, the men find that they’ve come to the attention of a ravenous succubus, who has developed an appetite for Scottish farmers.

Reader Advisory: This book includes scenes of M/M/F ménage and M/F content.

Belinda McBride is not the first author who has written a story about fallen angels and she certainly won’t be the last. The trick to this old hat story is how one puts a new spin on it and I think Ms. McBride has done a fairly good job with Falling.

So what made this book different for me? I think it was Rex, or more likely what Rex is: a ghillie dubh. I had to Google that to find out that is a solitary male faerie. He’s has wings and a tail, and he’s also gay. No surprise there since this is a M/M romance but what is strange Rion isn’t. He prefers women except he’s gay for Rex. There is of course more to that as anyone who reads this book will discover. Filled with curious twists along the way this novella packs quite the punch as all the layers are revealed. It the building relationship between Rion and Rex that really got me. The genuine feelings they have, not to mention the hot sex (Rex you’re a bad boy with that tail!) had me devouring this story fairly quickly.

Towards the end there is a mention of the succubus, and I’m not sure what her part in the story is because no sooner than she was brought up then the book ended (Huh?), rather abruptly (What?!), with a cliffhanger. (Oh no!) I wasn’t paying attention that this was a series. (*Slaps head*) Things were getting so good and now I got to wait for the next book. I guess that goes to show that I got sucked in quickly and was easily lost in the story. Falling was for me a very good beginning to what looks to be interesting series. I can’t wait to see where Ms. McBride takes her Bad Angels series next.
