Title: Fallen Rebel
Author: CG Blaine
Release Date: December 6th 2019
Watchers exist by one rule: keep your Nephilim alive. No matter what.
Protecting, following, watching from the shadows, I’ve served my time. Now, all that stands between me and returning home is her.
Hannah Kelley. The last of her line. My final charge. So long as she stays breathing for the next fifty to seventy years, I’ll have completed my punishment. No longer a Fallen.
Except now, she knows who I am. She knows what I am.
And I have no doubt she’s about to make my existence an absolute hell.
I lost everything I loved at once, my world ripped apart in an instant.
I’ve been alone ever since. At least, I thought I was until I met him. A guardian angel. My Watcher. The immortal asshole interfering with every aspect of my life.
Once Cass steps out of the shadows, I have no way of putting him back. Even though I desperately want to. He’s not exactly thrilled with my existence either. I’m keeping him from the eternity he’s been waiting for after all.
But whether we love or hate each other, our fates are intertwined—his forever tied to my life.
And when Cass decides he wants that forever to include me, I fear for anything in heaven or hell that might try to get in his way.
“In the beginning, there was only darkness. Then there was bullshit.”
Cass is a Watcher, an angel in charge of making sure the Nephilim lines on Earth go out naturally. His current and final charge is Hannah. Once she lives out the rest of her life, he is free to return to Heaven finally. And he can’t wait.
“What’s that saying? One step forward, two steps back? With Hannah and me, it’s more like one step sideways, run backward for a quarter of a mile.”
When Hannah learns the truth about Cass, she is less than thrilled to have a guardian angel who has been following her her whole life and will continue to be around for the rest of it. But there’s not much she can do about the arrangement. When demons are suddenly trying to take out the remaining nephilim, the two find themselves starting to get closer and closer.
“The girl I thought was an obstacle between me and everything I could ever want. But that’s not Hannah anymore, and maybe it never was. She’s so much more. She might actually be the everything I stand to lose.”
This was just a great paranormal romance! Cass and Hannah are so swoony and I loved watching their relationship go from can’t stand each other to in love. It went at such a great speed too! No insta-love here thank god. I was completely captivated the whole time! This was a well developed story line with plenty of details and world building to really get you sucked in. Recommended for fans of Alpha-holes turned sweet cinnamon rolls, paranormal romances, and gripping storylines. I give this 5 stars and cant wait to read more from CG!

“Do you believe in God?” I ask, agitation apparent in my voice. “Angels and Heaven and all that?”
“About as much as unicorns and fairies.” Her eyebrows pull together. “Why? Are you going to try and tell me you’re an angel?”
The second she says it out loud, my throat seizes up. We’re at the point of no return. My hand actually shakes while I take a drag off my cigarette, and all I can do is nod.
Hannah catches me off guard with an amused smile. “You want me to believe you’re an angel?” Then she laughs and rolls her eyes. “Okay, John Smith.”
I stare at the sky, placing my hands on the back of my head. She’s starting to irritate me, and I want this done and over with now.
“You want me to prove it?”
She laughs again and nods.
“Fine.” I storm off toward the cliff, my head shaking the entire way.
“Cass…” she says, panic in her tone as I reach the edge. “What are you doing?”
“I’m fucking proving it.”
And then I jump off the cliff, Hannah’s screams following me down.
