Book Review: When Angels Fall by Z.A. Maxfield

Kipling "Kip" Rush and Chemuel (aka Crash) became friends at the tender age of 10 when Kip accidentally fell into a hole covered by rotten wood. Kip never really knew how Crash ended up in that dark hole with him, but at least he made a friend in the process.

Crash always looks out for Kip whether he needs protection, support or consoling. Through the years, Kip and Crash form a strong bond and become the best of friends. When Crash helps Kip out of a potentially terrifying situation, the two young men must come to terms with their feelings for one another and if they want to risk their already perfect relationship.

What a lovely story! The relationship between Kip and Crash is unwavering and incredibly sweet. Crash will win your heart with his blunt innocence and relentless love and adoration for his best friend. I enjoyed watching the progression of Kip and Crash's relationship, but I did have a few issues with the story.
  1. The short story could have used an extra set of eyes to catch the typos that appeared here and there.
  2. The time jumps were a little confusing, causing me to have to re-read passages to fully understand what was going on.
  3. The ending fell a little flat. It seemed as though it was wrapped up too quickly, which left me wanting more.
All in all, this is a really sweet story and a quick read that will provide a little escapism while on the train or during a lunch break.
