Review: Fallen ( Blood & Roses #4 ) by Callie Hart

Fallen by Callie Hart


For over two years, Sloane Romera has pinned everything on finding Alexis. Life was going to get better. Easier. Happier. The nightmare of having a missing sister was supposed to end, and everything was supposed to go back to normal. 

However, now that she’s found her sister, Sloane is discovering that life has a way of ridiculing what we expect of it. 

Nothing is easier.

And ‘normal’ is falling for a man who might never be able to feel the same way.



A lengthy history of breaking things with his fists has given Zeth Mayfair a fairly good idea of how to get his own way. But when his goal, the one, single woman on the face of the planet that he’s truly ever wanted, can only be obtained by fixing things instead of destroying them, how can he adjust a lifetime of violence in order to make her his once and for all? And how can he make sure that she is safe?

The first part is going to take time. But the second part…

The second part is easy. 

He must kill Charlie Holsan.




I've never rated a novella 5 stars because I often felt they were too short to garner such rating. Something is often missing, either the incomplete plot or the unresolved issue/relationship. But this time around I finally decided to give the 4th installment of Blood & Roses: Fallen a big 5 stars!

This is a story of Sloane, the ER doctor who was looking for her missing sister. She is willing to give up anything including her virginity to get any information. That is how she meet Zeth Mayfair, the anti-hero of the story. He is obviously on the wrong side of the law, he is a thug/hitman/criminal and a man with some deviant sexual urges. She should be afraid, but he offer his help that she can't deny. 

I thought this series is going to be heavy on BDSM, but as the series progress, that was actually being toned down. Nonetheless, every sexual encounters are still freaking hot. I mean, he is Zeth Mayfair after all, the man who like to play with his toys and never leave his black duffel bag behind. 

Every installment left me pretty satisfied on the sex department, no blue balls for me. But this couple obviously not opening up their heart or discuss anything deeper than their sexual urges. On the plot department, there is never short on action and suspense to keep me waiting for every release date. Things just get more and more deadly and more players were being introduced.

But what makes me love this 4th installment so much is that Sloane and Zeth had finally reached an understanding and acknowledged what they have together is something special. Zeth's last word is so sweet. He started off as someone so standoffish and close up and just wanted to fuck, to someone who wants to be a better person for the girl he loves, which is so endearing.

I can't wait for the next one and see how their relationship progress.

Rating 5/5
