Fifteen year-old Megan Barnett and her single mom, Suze, have a special relationship—they are friends, close friends, who do almost everything together.

“But come on, guys, she’s my mother... Can I really tell her that while we’re snuggled up on the sofa watching Spider Man Three, I’m secretly undressing James Franco with my eyes? Of course not...”

The special bond takes a turn for the worse when Suze decides to start dating again. She hasn’t had a man in her life since Megan’s father left ten years ago.

Enter two mysterious young men, Megan’s new classmate, sinfully attractive bad boy, Guy Matson, and the dangerously handsome art dealer, Armando. Before long Megan and Suze both wind up in steamy relationships. But neither of the handsome pair is quite what he seems. In fact, one of them is Satan, with his sights set on a new bride. Megan has precious little time to figure out how to stop him. If she doesn’t, either Megan or Suze are quite literally going to HELL.

"Boyfriend From Hell" is the first book in the Falling Angels Saga from the author of the gruesomely hilarious, "Never Slow Dance With A Zombie."

Not bad but not necessarily a loved book. Moved a little slow for me (not sure why) so it was difficult to get through at times. the plot was fun, yet sometimes annoying because of the teenager main character. I just liked it though.read more

Megan Barnett is best friends with her mother, Suze and they do practically everything together. They start to drift apart when Suze decides to starts dating for the first time in ten years. Megan is utterly humiliated at the prospect of her own mother having a boyfriend before her. Not only that, but her two best friends, Matt and Erin, have decided to date too. Awkward! Then two mysterious men enter the Barnett women's lives. First, there's Guy Matson, Megan's new classmate: supremely hot and able to miraculously be a nerdy Mathlete and still retain a high level of cool. Next is Armando, the handsome art dealer Suze meets by chance. He's attractive, but something is a little bit off with him and Megan decides to investigate. One of them is Satan and Megan has to figure out which before either she or her mother gets dragged to Hell. Is it even possible to defeat Satan?Boyfriend from Hell is obviously a paranormal novel, but it's grounded in reality and deals with situations that everyone can relate to. It was the normal, everyday aspects that kept me interested and reading because I had similar experiences when I was younger. Megan is a teenager and her relationships with all the important people in her life are changing. She suddenly has to deal with her mother's dating and the fact that she is no longer the sole focus of her mother's life. They used to be really close friends and now her inability to deal with the situation is putting a rift between them. Her friends Matt and Erin started dating and it puts a strain on their relationship with Megan. In both cases, Megan feels jealous and left out. Her life seems static while everyone changes and it makes her uncomfortable. The problems with her mother and her friends stems from her trying to deny and not acknowledge those feelings, which makes them grow and build until they explode over everything. Megan acts very childish and practically intolerable at first, but really matures and grows as a person by the end of the novel. I think everyone comes to a point where the relationship with their parents and friends changes just because of the nature of the transition from childhood to adulthood.I really liked the supernatural and mystery aspects of the novel even though they weren't showcased until the last half of the novel. The devil and his creepy cult made for some good, but not too dark horror. I haven't read a lot of fiction where the devil is character that isn't over 100 years old, but the depiction of the devil was believable and dangerous without being over the top. This book had some twists and turns that I didn't expect, which is impressive. Not many books catch me off guard like that. The resolution was bittersweet and left a nice setup for the next novel, Earth Angel.E. Van Lowe's fluid and masterful writing made this book one that I needed to finish. He captures the voice of a teenage girl authentically with Megan, flaws and all. I look forward to what's next for these characters in the next book, Earth Angel. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys young adult fiction.read more

This was every teen book ever... right down to the misunderstood bad boy and a depressing death. Not to mention about 3 or so "twists" that were terribly obvious. I'll admit, I did misjudge one character, but overall this book was merely blah. If you have nothing else to read and you like teen fiction (paranormal or not, honestly), it'll pass the time. Everything about it was mediocre. I wish I could explain why, but it honestly felt like I'd read the book before...more than once.read more

Such a great premise for this novel! I really wanted to like it, but I could NOT get past the mediocre writing. A "slow dread" is constantly filling Megan's belly, or a "slow chill" is "bristling" up her spine. Ugh. There are SO MANY clunky similes and metaphors. They were incredibly distracting and awful."I looked forward to my stolen moments with Guy the way a child looks forward to Christmas.""My blood was pumping so fast it felt as though it was being pushed through a broken water pipe.""His laughing eyes dove into my soul.""The words just tumbled out of me like a row of dominos. And once the first one fell, the others couldn't help but follow.""The hope drained from his face like water through a sieve."I think Van Lowe's intent was to be funny, and I did chuckle a few times. Megan is such a ridiculous character; I'm not sure I ever really believed her. Megan says to herself, "They say change only comes under duress." I never saw all that much duress in her life. Losing her friends and behaving childishly when it comes to her mother dating was all her own fault. It states in the blurb on the back of the book that either Megan or her mother is dating Satan, but we aren't sure which boyfriend it is. False. It's obvious from the beginning who Satan is. So of course, I figured the twist would be that it's the other guy. Nope. I was right from the start. The twist comes completely out of left field, and felt tacked on simply to be a twist. The end is left open for the rest of the series, but I will not be reading them.

An interesting YA paranormal romance/urban fantasy. Megan is 15 and her mom is her best friend. Then mom starts dating the Devil - literally. This is the story of how Megan saves the day. I like that Lowe has made Megan real - she doesn't always have the answer; she has normal, teen-aged reactions to what is happening around her; but she comes thru in the end. The first in a new series, I'll be looking for the next book.

I didn't love this book, but it was a cute, fast read. I just never loved Megan, our protagonist, and I felt the supporting characters were pretty two-dimensional. I'm big on characterization, so this took something away from the book for me. Megan starts out pretty annoying. Granted, I could completely understand why she was annoying: she's a teenager, her mom just started dating again, and her two best friends started dating each other. All good and understandable reasons for a teenager to be jealous and snippy, but it doesn't mean I have to like it. :) She does redeem herself later in the book, so there's that. And the book has some nice twists and turns, and shocks and funny bits, which I'm always a fan of.I don't know if I'll be in a rush to pick up the next book in the series, but I'm sure I'll read it.
