Review: New Orleans (Fallen #3) by Tiffany Aaron

Fallen:
When the rebellion in Heaven occurred, God banished those angels who stood against him. They’ve lived on Earth for centuries, doing all they could to survive without going insane. Some continue to protect mortals at all costs, while others just want to blend into the world around them.

The Fallen struggle to find balance between the desire for what they lost and the love they stand to gain if they stay on Earth.

**Book three in the Fallen series**

When a fallen angel has to break a Vodou curse to save the woman he loves, all hell just might break loose.

Dominic LaFontaine is a night club owner in New Orleans, and he just happens to be a fallen angel as well. He's been in love with his best friend for a couple of years now, but has never found the courage to tell her. Then she starts dating another man, and he realises he could lose her.

Teresa Ryder has wanted Dominic from the first moment they met five years ago, but until recently he'd never given any indication that he saw her as anything more than a friend. So she finds another man who wants her. Unfortunately, Vincent Delacourte isn't the man she thinks he is, and Teresa finds herself swept up in a Vodou curse.

Now it will take all of Dominic's power and knowledge, along with that of his friends, to save the woman he loves from a madman's clutches.

New Orleans by Tiffany Aaron is the 3rd book in the Fallen series. This story follows Dominic and Teresa who have been best friend for years. They have secretly been in love with each other for year but neither have had the courage to voice their love aloud. It takes Teresa dating another man, Vincent, for Dominic to release what he is losing. When he takes the chance to vocalize his feelings, Teresa dumps the new guy for the man she has longed for. Unfortunately, Vincent is not what he seems and doesn’t let go of Teresa easily. Vincent has placed a Vodou curse on Teresa and now it will take everything Dominic has to save her. But is being a fallen angel enough to save the woman he loves?

New Orleans starts out great. I instantly liked Dominic and Teresa. The connection between them is strong and it just keeps growing thorough the book. The secondary characters were a wonderful compliment to the story. They had great personalities and perked my interest to see they all get their own story. My personal favorite is Mika’il. I really would like to see him get a HEA but as an archangel something tells me that will go as a unanswered wish. It was about ¾ of the way into the story I felt it started to lose some of its steam. Not the sexual heat type. That was spot on from start to finish. Probably because Dominic and Teresa are friends and have love each other for so long. They do get their HEA it’s just with all this build-up, this great anticipated ending I felt should have happened, felt very rushed and fizzled out for me. The story is still great and I do think this is definitely worth the read, but for me, instead of ending in a ‘YES-YES-YES!’ it was more of an ‘Oh, okay’.

New Orleans is the first book in the Fallen series that I have read.  It was originally released under the title Fallen: Dominic with a different cover. I’m definitely enjoying the changes because the new cover is sweet! There were a some references to things that had occurred with Dominic in a previous book, which makes me wish I had gotten the chance to read the first two books in the series. However, in the end, I think it worked very well as a stand-alone. With the combination of fallen angels and the lovely city of New Orleans, this book is something I will be recommending.
