Sometimes you must fall before you can fly free.
Despite having had a rough life, Seth has a big heart. After spending nearly ten years sleeping rough on the streets of New York, he’s managed to get himself freelance work and a place to live. But his new-found security is about to be torn apart, as the horrors of his past come back to haunt him in the worst possible way.
Dante was sent to watch over a young Seth when his mother died. As an angel, he had many rules to follow. The most important of which was to never fall in love—especially when it involves a human who is your charge. For the last ten years, Dante has kept his feelings for Seth hidden. That is until the night Seth’s past catches up with him.
When Seth is murdered, their destinies are changed forever. Feelings and emotions come to the surface, but will the rules that govern the afterlife keep Dante and Seth apart for eternity, or will they be able to find their happily ever after together?

Seth kept the last cup of coffee, now barely lukewarm, for the man who always sat alone, distant from the rest. There was something about him that mesmerized Seth in a way he couldn’t describe. It was probably the man’s eyes, which were a vivid shade of blue that pierced even the darkest night. He sat on the same bench every night, huddled in a tatty black trench coat.
“Seth.” Blue Eyes nodded his thanks as he wrapped his hands around the cup Seth handed to him.
“It’s not very warm, I’m afraid.”
Blue Eyes shrugged, never taking his gaze off Seth as he sipped the coffee. His dark hair fell to his shoulders in waves, framing his handsome face. His olive skin tone made him appear healthier than the rest, although Seth was reasonably sure that was deceptive. A short beard and mustache helped further define his broad chin and sculpted cheekbones. Seth thought to ask his name, but couldn’t convince the question to leave his lips.
He was always like that around Blue Eyes: tongue-tied and awkward. The man was incredibly gorgeous, and Seth couldn’t help but be physically attracted to him. Maybe in another lifetime, under very different circumstances, he would have the confidence to ask Blue Eyes more about himself; discover the mysteries sparkling in the depths of his eyes. But things were what they were and showing interest in the man was wholly inappropriate. So, instead of asking Blue Eyes his name, he uttered a goodbye and turned to go.

For You I Fall is the first novel in the Angels and Misfits series. Former street kid Seth has had a tough life. Made homeless when his mother died, he’s had to struggle to survive and to turn his life around. After ten years he’s managed to find himself work and a place to live. Working as a freelance photographer he’s also able to help those less fortunate than him who still live on the streets. Unknown to Seth, watching over him is the angel Dante and over the years Dante has struggled to ignore his growing and forbidden feelings for his charge.
When Seth is murdered and finds himself at a crossroads, Dante is there for him and to guide him to what follows, however their feelings and Seth’s unfinished business on Earth leads him to making a decision that could have serious consequences for the both of them.
I was torn over my rating for this novel. I liked the premise and the relationship between Seth and Dante. It was very tender and you felt as a reader just how much they cared for each other. Seth’s quest to bring his killer to justice was not as straightforward as it seemed. He also had to struggle with the consequences of remaining in limbo for so long which was an idea that I really liked and it was incorporated well into the novel.
However there were times where I had trouble with Dante’s character. With Seth he was tender and sweet, but his interactions with other characters, especially the angel Killian, seemed very childish. His dialogue was immature in places and the way he spoke made it difficult for me as a reader to believe that he was an angel. Jealousy I understand but he lacked the maturity of his years and I found him very unlikable in places because of it.
It is for this reason that I can only give For You I Fall 3.5 stars. I would read other books in the series as I would like to see what awaits Seth and Dante in the future and see how their relationship develops further.
