Audio Tour & Review: Tripping on a Halo - Alessandra Torre

Tripping on a Halo
by Alessandra Torre
Publication Date: December 7, 2018
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

It’s really hard to save a guy’s life when he keeps running from you.

You might be asking yourself why I’m waving an inflatable penis in the air and screaming at the top of my lungs. If I took time to explain, Declan Moss would get hit by a bus.

Let me back up. I didn’t ask for this. I was perfectly happy—and perfectly sane—before I was tasked with keeping Declan Moss alive. It was a thankless job until the moment that my panties dropped and his delicious smirk found his way in between my thighs.

Hello, toe-curling ecstasy. Goodbye, professional boundaries. And suddenly, there’s a new danger to avoid: the falling of my heart.

Prepare to laugh out loud, as Alessandra Torre gives readers an over-the-top romantic comedy with Tripping on a Halo. It all started with blinding pain and a handsome man jogging straight into danger, Autumn did what any guardian angel would do, she saved him. Of course, no one but her believes she's a guardian angel, but that's not going to stop her from stalking Declan to ensure he's safe and well at the end of each day. When a chance encounter convinces Declan that many the peculiar woman isn't so bad he lets her in, stalking tendencies and all.

I did not expect anything I got in this book at all, but it sure was enjoyable. Tripping on a Halo, for me, was unlike any other Alessandra Torre book and it's totally unique compared to everything else I'm reading right now. Autumn is a quirky character, one who is impossible to understand at first, but in time you find yourself loving her unique personality. Declan, on the other hand, is an up-and-coming architect that is handsome, sweet, and far too patient with the odd blonde following him around. Their meeting is perfect, probably my favorite scene of the book, and soon they become an odd couple, sort of. Declan sets out to woo the assertive angel and readers get to enjoy their seriously smutty hook ups.

It wouldn't be an Alessandra Torre book without a bit of heart though, so the book isn't all inflatable phallic objects, crazy talk, cuddly pigs, and smooching at every chance the characters get. Both characters have some things to work through, especially when it comes to romance and that little thing about Autumn thinking she's a guardian angel. Things take an odd and painful turn though and we get to know Declan a whole lot more. Without giving anything else away, Tripping on a Halo is an unexpected, hilarious, and romantic read, one that was a really nice escape for me during my hectic week. It's a sugary sweet read that you won't be able to put down, even if rom-com isn't your usual genre choice. Alessandra Torre can do it all!

Audiobook Review:

I only recently got into audiobooks and I had yet to listen to a comedy novel, at least until I got my hands on Tripping on a Halo by Alessandra Torre. Narrated by Tor Thom and Charley Ongel, we follow Declan and Autumn through their unconventional, hilarious love story. It was an easy listen, one that I could walk away from to run errands and jump right back into as soon as I pushed start on my car. It's lighthearted and the narrators, though I wasn't sure about Tor Thom at first, really embodied the characters well for me. The two narrate well together and I felt like they were really sparring during some of the dialogue scenes. For me, the audio was a hit and maybe made the book even better in terms of the comedy moments.
