Falling for the Devil by KC Freeman - Book Review

 From USA Today Bestselling Author, KC Freeman...

What if everything we thought we knew about the fall of the most notorious archangel from history was wrong?

Archangel Lucifer has been tasked with avenging slaughtered angels; but in so doing must face his greatest challenge--unbridled temptation. Only ever wanting to be the dutiful son, all things change when he comes face to face with the virgin Goddess of the Hunt.

The young goddess wants to become a warrior like her brothers. She finally gets the chance when the Creator himself requests her help on a hunt for an angel killer.

Adventure awaits them both as they face many unexpected perils along the way to justice, but the true danger lies closer within... to the desire that once ignited in their hearts could change the course of history in the cosmos forever.

Falling for the Devil is a romantic fantasy adventure with a salacious take on the fall of Heaven's most renowned angel. Can the good son deny his own heart? Or will they both be willing to break all the rules to forge their own path, regardless of the price that must be paid.

My Review
Falling for the Devil is a paranormal fantasy romance that mashes up angels with Greek mythology. Lucifer, the Archangel of Light, finds himself on Mount Olympus, intrigued by the lovely Artemis (although she prefers Diana). But when his brother Olivier arrives with grave news, Lucifer and Diana embark on a perilous journey to uncover a monstrous secret. Along the way, their budding romance is put to the test. Will their love endure?
I enjoyed this book. It was a unique take on the lore/mythology. I liked how angels and demons existed alongside the various gods. Definitely not something you normally see.
There are some steamy scenes as Diana and Lucifer give in to their desires, but there's also adventure, action, a small tinge of horror (based on one scene), betrayal, and heartbreak. It's an all-encompassing novel that is well-written and worth a read.
4 stars!
