Story Overview:

Drusilla “Tally” Tallow does. Both fallen and otherwise because she’s got ten days of Heavenly and Infernal Parole after knocking Falcon Cherrywood from his broom. All she wanted was to settle down with a nice warlock, have babies, and grow old together. But she’s got a bad habit of falling for the wrong warlock. She blames Cupid. Too bad her Heavenly Parole Officer is none other than the heart bandit himself—the newly appointed Cupid and current fixture in all her fantasies, Falcon Cherrywood.

After smiting Cupid with a fireball, Falcon Cherrywood must now play the Diapered Archer. He can’t think of anything more humiliating than flying around in pink wings shooting arrows into hopeless fools. Archery was never his strong suit and Falcon doesn’t even believe in love. But more troubling are the feelings his sinfully irresistible parolee sets off in him—for only Tally has the power to make him believe in things better left to fairy tales, like Happily Ever After.

My Review:
This is #3 in this series, but these books work as stand-alones. I haven't read the other two in the series, although I will admit to being tempted by them several times. Well, when I started reading this book, I resisted until I hit the 15% point (yes, it's that fun and entertaining) and then I got online and ordered all three books (this one included) in print...because I definitely want to read them all and add them to my keeper shelf!

This book is number three in the series and the characters sound like they have been VERY involved in the story lines of the other two novels and are now living with the consequences of those events. For Tally, she's a pariah among her people. An evil infested her in the last book and she killed several people, some whom she loved dearly. It was all worked out, but no one trusts her now. 

One of those she killed was Falcon, one of her oldest and dearest friends. He's since come back, but now he's Cupid...a job that doesn't really suit him since he doesn't believe in love. 

Falcon and Tally have been friends for a long time and they've circled around their attraction for just about as long, but when the powers that be put Falcon in charge of Tally's probation, that puts them in prolonged contact with each other...and you know where that's going to go.

This is a fabulously fun world. Falcon is one of three triplets, so we have all those sexy guys. His sister and Tally's best friend just married another super-sexy guy. Falcon is Tally's parole officer on the angelic side, but she also has a parole officer from the hellish side too...the supersexy, Ethelred, who's having his own love problems thanks to Cupid's arrow. There's a whole lot of sexy going around....and they all love to give Falcon hell for his diaper and pink wings. It's definitely a fun book. 

But the flip side of that is Tally. This is a girl who's never had an easy go in life and isn't so sure that she deserves it. She's overcome with guilt over what happened before, even though it truly wasn't her fault. She doesn't feel like she deserves love and watching her overcome that through this book was fabulous. I loved watching her develop.

It truly is a fabulous book. I enjoyed every single minute of reading it and can't wait to read the other two in the series.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
