Reviews for Passion
Could have been Better!
I just could not really get into this book. I did in the beginning cause I was excited to see what was going to happen from the second novel. It seems to be that she's done this novel too much in the hopes of turning it into a script. It would be great as a movie, but as a book it really let me down.
The worst part was the repetition, continuously describing things which have already been said. The part where Bill is hiding when an angel is present. He said this earlier in the book, and she's constantly wondering why he's left. This character was made out to be less intelligent than she was in the earlier books.
This book is important to the series, which had been alright so far. Hopefully the fourth novel is better written. by Natalie Cleary

Okay, I know a lot of people have had issues with this book. But I didn't. I loved it. I know that it's basically just Luce stepping in and out of Announcers in different times and places, but I loved seeing her past lives with Daniel. I loved seeing them fall in love so deeply each time, it was so romantic. As you should already know if you've read the first two books (Which you better have if you're reading this review!!!), Daniel has had to watch Luce die over, and over, and over again with each reincarnation. He falls in love with her as a different person, with the same soul, each time and she falls in love with him and just as they start to proclaim that love, poof. She dies. It's so tragic, but such a romantic tragic love story.
Also, in this third installment, you get to read Daniel's point-of-view. Every other chapter is Daniel's. I really loved seeing through his eyes and getting an insight on his feelings and the way he thinks. It also adds a lot to the history of him and Luce, and the fallen angels.
The only thing that I can remember really bugging me was the fact that it seemed like Luce STILL needed to know about her love with Daniel after so many past lives. She knew after so many of them that their love was true, and she kept whining about missing him. I know, though, that this book was about learning about the past with them. But I hated how she basically whined through the whole thing.
And ugh, Bill. I knew something was up with him as soon as Luce met him. I was always suspicious of him, even when I kind of liked how he helped Luce. But the whole time I was waiting for him to do something. Not going to go into too much detail about him, ha. Or I'll give away everything with him and rant on and on and on about how...nevermind!
Overall, I loved this installment. I'm dying to read Rapture, but I want to save some time and read Fallen in Love. I'm really sad that Rapture is the last book. These books make me cry so hard. They make my heart hurt. The writing flows well and you fly through SO many pages so fast, even though the chapters are super long. Which I don't mind in these books. If you haven't tried this series yet, please do! I know a lot of people stay away from them because they are the type that is either a love, or a hate relationship. Can't be so-so about it, or at least I haven't seen anybody with a "Ooh, yeah I liked it. It was okay." feeling about it. by Amanda

Review from Blkosiner's Book Blog
Well, I flew through Passion, finishing in less than a day. I didn't want to put it down, and I needed to know what would come next.
Passion wasn't really what I expected... while in theory we got to see some of their romances and where the love is coming from in their past encounters, I really wanted at least one start to finish meeting and falling in love.
What I got instead was interesting, and it really helps to see where Daniel's immense love comes from, and get to know him and where he's been. What Luce got from it was more of a sense of who she is, and she has to learn and convince herself that their love is from something real, not just fate or simple attraction.
This is a good addition to the series, and I know that I'll pick up the last and hope that all the threads are tied up and something happens with a bang. by Brandi Kosinerunder review
Passion was great book, pretty much exactly what I wanted, language can be a little confusing and the story could be better in places. not as good as Fallen, way better than torment. definitely an awesome read for Fallen fans :) by Naomi Impellizzeriunder review
