Review: Falling in Eden by Willow Aster (Legends and Lovers #5)
Note: An advance reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author.
Falling in Eden is the fifth book in the multi-author Legends and Lovers series. Penned by Willow Aster, this features a paranormal romance between Phina and Nial. After a devastating event, Phina finds herself in a place that feels...familiar. She's surrounded by the beauty within the home and outside of its walls, but it's the stranger with her that captures her attention most. There's something about Nial that stirs something within her. He seems to know more than what he's telling her. And then there are the dreams--dreams which feel more like long-buried memories that she shares with him. As her time there increases, the more Phina feels like she's exactly where she belongs, but will the truth change everything and will the threat of someone from her near past wreak havoc?
It's been a while since I last read a paranormal romance involving angels, and no, this is not me being spoilery because hello, the book cover has angel's wings on it. I actually went into this book without reading the blurb, and it wasn't until after the first couple of chapters that everything began clicking into place. I quite liked both Phina and Nial, and Phina's flashbacks through her dreams of them from when they were younger as Seraphina and Hadraniel provided all those missing pieces of their story. Because this was shorter in length, there were moments where it felt like the storytelling was rushed, but it didn't totally take away from my overall enjoyment of Phina and Nial and their story. Falling in Eden is my first read from the Legends and Lovers series, and I find myself happily satisfied and curious about the other books. This gets four stars out of five stars.
