Synopsis (from goodreads):
Just because Megan Barnett recently defeated Satan, has a fantastic new best friend, and has won the love of deliciously
handsome, Guy Matson, doesn’t mean her troubles are over. Far from it. For Megan doesn’t realize it, but in her possession is a powerful weapon, a weapon sought after by both angels and demons and everything in between. They will do ANYTHING to get it.
In E. Van Lowe’s humorous, romantic and thrilling sequel to Boyfriend From Hell, Megan winds up in a gripping life or death battle to save herself, the boy she loves, and all of mankind from unthinkable evil.
Megan Barnett doesn’t waste any time – she’s just saved her mother, lost her best friend and is about to enter the serious stage of the school year – and already she’s back facing another supernatural enemy. Her formerly angelic boyfriend Guy Matson is heavenly and is everything she could want in a boyfriend but his former life as an angel is starting to take its toll on Megan. He has secrets that he can’t divulge and when mysterious people from his past pop up Megan isn’t quite sure how to handle things. When demons start appearing in her backyard Megan knows that something is up… and knows that she’ll need help in order to beat the beings of Hell again…
I love to see characters grow and Megan has matured quite a bit since Boyfriend From Hell. She’s still a little self-absorbed but deep down her heart is in the right place. When it comes down to it she will sacrifice all she has in order to help those she cares for. Her friendship with Erin is practically non-existent but I really liked that Megan didn’t just forget about her friend and move on. She’s trying. And the evolution of her romantic relationship with Guy is fun to read.
There’s new characters in Earth Angel that I loved reading about – Rocky and Harrison. And despite cringing every time Harrison spoke (I swear – us Aussies don’t sound like that!) they brought something new and exciting to the story. Maudrina is a fantastic BFF for Megan to have and confide in regarding the supernatural activity and Maudrina’s aunt is the kind of mentor that every Satan defeating heroine needs in her corner.
I would have loved to have seen more Guy in this story – but completely understand why he was on the down low. The romance was sweet and I liked where the author is taking this couple.
This is a quick and fun read where the angels are sinfully delightful and the heroine is trying to save the world whilst still muddling though high school. The third book in the trilogy, Heaven Sent, is available now.

About the Author
E Van Lowe was born in the Bronx a long time ago, back in the days when children were supposed to be seen and not heard. Fortunately for E, his parents allowed him to speak freely. Unfortunately for his parents and older brother, E had a lot to say. He was speaking quite freely until one day, while his mother was trying to watch her “stories” (which is code for soap operas), she suggested that instead of speaking freely, he write all his important thoughts down. E wrote down many important thoughts, such as: crayons melt when you leave them on the radiator, or toy soldiers melt when you drop them in the muffin batter before mom puts it in the oven. His brother thought he was weird, but E was only ten years old at the time. What did he expect, Shakespeare? E liked writing things down so much, he decided that when he grew up, he was going to become a professional writer.
E has gone on to write for many award winning TV shows including: The Cosby Show, and Even Stevens. He also co-wrote the Academy Award nominated short film, Cadillac Dreams. Never Slow Dance With A Zombie was his first teen novel. Boyfriend From Hell is the first in the Falling Angels Saga. The second novel in the saga, Earth Angel, will be coming out soon. It seems E still has lots of important, and weird, thoughts to share with readers.
