Fallen in Love by Lauren Kate

Ever wonder how your favorite characters spend their holidays? Well, you get a chance to spend Valentine's Day with some of our favorite characters from Lauren Kate's Fallen series in Fallen in Love.
Here's the summary from Goodreads: What makes your heart race a little faster? Just in time for Valentine's Day, it's FALLEN IN LOVE, four wholly original new stories collected in a new novel set in the Middle Ages by Lauren Kate. FALLEN IN LOVE gives fans the much-talked about but never-revealed stories of FALLEN characters as they intertwine with the epic love story of Luce and Daniel. The stories include: Love Where You Least Expect It: The Valentine of Shelby and Miles , Love Lessons: The Valentine of Roland; Burning Love: The Valentine of Arriane; and Endless Love: The Valentine of Daniel and Lucinda.

I know a lot of people had mixed feelings about this book. I didn't. I've actually gotten more and more interested in the series as we've gone along. So I was excited when I learned that this book was coming out. I always feel tense when I'm reading a Fallen novel, because anything can, and often does, happen. But I took this one for what it was: Fluff. Just a little bit more information about some of our favorite characters from the books, and watching them in some of their most vulnerable states. So much of the novels are focused on Luce and Daniel (well duh, they are the main characters!), that it seems like the only purpose the supporting characters serve is for those two. But this gives us a glimpse into their lives, and the important people and things in their lives. That was what I really enjoyed about these stories. Something that was unique about this story was how one flowed into another. We begin with Shelby and Miles, then at the end of their story, Roland comes on the scene. When the story is over, we pick up the next story with Roland in the same time and place as he was with Shelby and Miles.

I thought this was a fun piece of fluff to add to the Fallen series, giving readers a fun look at a different side of some of the characters. Anyone whose been enjoying this series should give this one a chance. It's a sweet Valentine's Day read!
