RELEASE REVIEW: LUST. HATE. LOVE by Ella Frank and Brooke Blaine


(Fallen Angel Series, Book Four)

USA TODAY bestselling authors Ella Frank & Brooke Blaine continue the story of sexy Fallen Angel rockers Killian and Levi in LUST. HATE. LOVE.


As the sexy, charismatic bassist for world-famous rock band Fallen Angel, whatever Killian Michaels wants, Killian Michaels gets.

Or at least that was the case until the band’s gorgeous new manager, Levi Walker, shot him down after a blistering first kiss.

For Levi, managing these five guys is the opportunity of a lifetime, and he’s not about to let a case of sexual desire get in his way. He’s efficient, professional, and plays by the book. But tension simmers beneath Levi’s cool exterior every time Killian’s near, and soon enough the passion boils over, consuming them both.

As the Corruption tour takes them from country to country, a heated game of cat and mouse ensues. Levi tries to deny the irresistible pull of Killian’s seductive nature, but with an attraction as strong as theirs, it’s only a matter of time before the lust-filled hate turns to love.

LUST. HATE. LOVE. is the fourth book of the Fallen Angel Series and follows a new couple in the band. It can be read as a standalone or following ANGEL

My Review


Killian Michaels infatuation with his band’s new manager, Levi Walker, is instantaneous – lust at first sight if you will. And Kill’s desire for Levi is very much reciprocated but sexual lust is not enough for Levi to risk his position as Fallen Angel’s manager. But their longing for one another doesn’t dissipate; in fact, it only grows more intense, meaning that it’s not a matter of if but when Levi will give into his carnal desire for Killian and what that means for them both personally and professionally will be unclear.


I’m not sure if it ever becomes true hate that they feel toward each other. Rather, I think it’s the barriers that are in place that force Levi not to give into his need for Killian and makes Killian’s mission to tear down Levi’s walls that much harder. Because there is not any substantial angst involved in the story line, I don’t feel like hate is an accurate depiction of how these two feel, but I can definitely see it being frustrating for Killian to be denied what he wants, which is Levi, and that could cause some less than stellar emotional outbursts and maybe even some self-recriminations from both sides.


The slow burn comes into play because Killian has to work for what he wants from and with Levi. In some ways, Kill has to make it worth the risk that Levi would take if he became romantically involved with one of the members of the band he manages and how outsiders might deem him unprofessional, and for a straight-laced, by the book guy like Levi, it will take a guy proving himself time and time again that he’s worth it…that he can go the distance regardless of what may challenge him and them, and I love that Kill proves himself, not only to Levi but to readers as well, who have impatiently waited for his story!

It’s been an entertaining, frustrating, and one heck of a steamy journey with the members of Fallen Angel, and I can’t wait to see what new stories and characters Ella Frank and Brooke Blaine have in store for romance readers in 2020.

You could say Brooke Blaine was a book-a-holic from the time she knew how to read; she used to tell her mother that curling up with one at 4 a.m. before elementary school was her ‘quiet time.’ Not much has changed except for the espresso I.V. pump she now carries around and the size of her onesie pajamas.

Brooke enjoys writing sassy contemporary romance, whether in the form of comedy, suspense, or erotica. The latter has scarred her conservative Southern family for life, bless their hearts.

If you’d like to get in touch with her, she’s easy to find – just keep an ear out for the Rick Astley ringtone that’s dominated her cell phone for ten years.
