We didn’t speak as she walked towards me. She took a washcloth and held it under the water. She raised it to my cheek, holding it over the graze. The control I had exerted inside for so long gave way to an overwhelming desire for her. It had been two years that I had watched her grow into a woman, two years of holding back, of knowing she wanted me and resisting her.
I closed my eyes and sighed. I turned and took a step towards her. I rested my forehead on hers as she bunched my shirt in her hands. It wasn’t a conscious movement but my hand snaked around her waist, gripping the t-shirt she was wearing. Her smell was intoxicating and my senses spiralled out of control. I nuzzled into her neck; her warm skin met my lips. My tongue trailed a path across her jawbone finding her mouth. She welcomed me in. As our kiss deepened I walked her backwards, pressing her against the wall. I needed the wall for support. And then I heard a small moan, a moan of pleasure.
“Fuck, fuck, fuck,” I said as I moved away from her.

I am a huge Tracie Podger fan and I love the Fallen Angel series :) When I read Evelyn, I loved her heartbreaking story so I was really happy when I found out that Tracie will also write Rocco's story. Even though, I knew the ending, the book was still a page turner. I enjoyed every single second of reading it. It had heartbreak, danger and of course the tragic love story. Pretty much everything a great story needs. The characters were very well developed as always and the writing was simply superb.
Rocco encountered tragedy from an early age and had to become the man of the family much earlier than he was supposed to. And that's a big part of what made him the man Evelyn met and fell in love with. Rocco is strong and righteous. He was ready to give his life so he can get revenge on the man who destroyed his family. And that's what leads him to Evelyn. She is the one who changes the game for him. She manages to break the walls around his heart and becomes the most important person in his life.
Rocco and Evelyn's story is tragic and heartbreaking. It is pretty much a modern day Romeo and Juliet type of story, so be ready to cry your eyes out. I would recommend though, to first read the other books in the series or at least Evelyn as that would give you a much better understanding of the main characters.
In a few words, I really loved this short accompanying novella to the Fallen Angel series. The story was so intriguing and heartbreaking, that even though I knew how it will end I still couldn't put it down. I had tears in my eyes most of the time and I have to say that in my opinion Evelyn and Rocco's story is one of the most tragic stories I've ever read. So if you haven't read any of Tracie Podger's previous books, I think you should definitely reconsider and pick one up right now :) Me personally, I can't wait until the next installment in the series comes out. I really do miss Robert :)
