Forbidden by Syrie James and Ryan M. James

This book scores a 7/10 because of the action/suspense/romance/and drama factors. I enjoyed how the author threw in a plot twist at the end of the book and can’t wait to read the sequel.

Fallen by Lauren Kate

At first, the story was confusing but as it progressed it became clear. It was a super romance that spanned for thousands of years, each time with the girl being reincarnated to torture a fallen angel. This book scored an 8 1/2 out of 10.
