Happily Evan After (Fall for You # 1)

By Michelle Irwin

BR Happily Evan After

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Happily Evan After is my second book from Michelle Irwin and despite being another paranormal romance, it is completely different from the dark and serious Through the Fire.

Evan is a Cupid and after his own love life ends tragically, he’s sent back to earth by The Powers That Be to bring love and happiness to those who desire it.  He has been promised he will find his own paradise once his service is complete.  While Evan is not bogged down by human desires, his only craving is to feel the love garnered from his assignments.

When Evan receives Becca as his next assignment, he’s shocked to learn that not only is she the near spitting image of his one true love, she has the soul of his lost love as well.  His job is to find her perfect match, but that job is made very difficult when he wants to be her perfect match.  But how can he be when he’s not really human.

Throw in an über-hot doctor (Drew) and you’ve got yourself one very sticky situation.

I don’t know if I’m PMSing or what right now, but I found myself getting teary over Evan throughout this book.  When he was thinking of his lost love, or how frustrated he got with not being human, thereby affecting his chances with Becca and what he could offer her.  I felt so sorry for him.

Drew on the other hand I did not feel sorry for at all.  He was upsetting Becca so badly and he was absolutely clueless about doing it.  He would have left her a shell of the woman she was.  Although from the sounds of it, I would have had a great time taking a ride on that stallion.  Then I would have kicked his rude arse to the curb.

What can I say about Becca?  To be honest, I don’t know what to say other than she just didn’t seem to “pop” for me.  I loved Evan and hated Drew, but Becca just seemed to be somewhere in the middle.  Or maybe Evan shined so bright that no-one else could compare.

I think my only disappointment with the book was that I didn’t feel enough was written about Rose.  I mean, we learnt the basics about her, but I would have liked to learn more about her life, even if it was just from the letters sent by Evan.  I don’t know why I feel that way, other than I think it would have been nice for Becca to feel some sort of connection to Rose.

I’m assuming this is a stand-alone, but I can totally picture a prequel about Rose and Evan.
