My Rating: 4 Stars!
Where I came from everything is perfect. Everything is beautiful and predictable. Life isn’t measured by days, but by infinite joy that never ends.19px;">But it did. When I fell in love with a man who was perfectly imperfect. The price for forbidden affection was steep and my beautiful white wings withered and died around me. I was fallen. I am fallen. Years have passed, and I’ve learned the true meaning of time. I’ve learned to build a wall around myself and exist alone. Yet, when he looks at me… the heart beneath my armor trembles. But I must remember. I must remember that I might not have anything left to lose, but he certainly does. And risking him is something I won’t do. So I lock my feelings where they belong. Beneath.
It is no secret that I adore Cambria's Heven and Hell series, so much so that I get excited whenever I know there is going to be another book or novella out in the series.
But this novella, I was really excited about. This one is all about Gemma and I have been dying to know her story. She is one of my favorite characters because she is so mysterious. She is a strong fighter, has a tender heart but a tough girl exterior. She been there for Sam, Heven and Cole numerous times and you can just see that she is good. Everything about her screams it and I really wanted to know the whole story of why she was fallen.
I loved her and Callum's story. It was beautifully tragic.
But Cole and Gems? That one truly makes me melt. I love Cole, I always have and seeing him with Gemma, the tenderness he shows her, the love he has for her, that is beautiful.
I am rooting for these two all the way and I can't wait to get more of them (and Sam and Heven) in the next book. It will be really hard to see this series end. I don't want it to end.
I am so glad Cambria gave us this look into Gemma because, I really do feel like I understand her more now and I love her all the more for it. I want her and everyone in this series to have their happily ever after.
