I’ve noticed something strange lately. I don’t read as many books as I used to. I used to love to curl up in bed or on the sofa and devour a good book. But lately I can’t seem to stay focused. I know why. It’s that damned internet. It keeps calling me. It’s like that old Twilight Zone episode where a guy goes to Las Vegas for the first time and discovers slot machines. You know the one I’m talking about? He goes back to his room and tries to go to bed but he hears his name being called in a loud whisper. “Franklin.”
The slot machines are calling.
That’s how I feel. The internet is calling and I must heed the call: email, Twitter, Facebook my blog. I must check them. I MUST CHECK THEM!
Last evening, I sat in the living room, book in hand and began to read: “Franklin.” (I know that’s not my name but it has an ominous ring to it). A few nights ago I lay in bed, picked up my book and began to read: “Franklin.” I realize I just checked my email ten minutes ago so I continue reading… “Franklin!” But when was the last time I checked my Facebook page? An entire hour ago. It’s important that I find out what Barbara Jensen had for lunch, so I stop reading and I check.
I’ve been reading the current book I’m on for nearly a month now. Yes, it’s interesting. No, it’s not as long as War And Peace. But I can’t get through it. Am I alone in this? Do any of you out there have this problem? That damned internet is destroying my life. Someone has to shut it down. It’s dangerous… Excuse me? What was that?

Amazon Summary: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, one sought after by both angels and demons and everything in between. They will do ANYTHING to get it.
In E. Van Lowe's dramatic and humorous sequel to "Boyfriend From Hell," Megan winds up in a gripping life-or-death battle to save herself, the angel she loves, and all of mankind from unspeakable evil.
"E. Van Lowe does a great job of capturing teenage angst, dating woes, and parental issues without over-doing it," writes critic Nicole Etolen, Pretty Opinionated. "'Earth Angel' was just as fun to read as 'Boyfriend From Hell'."
Review:A few months ago, I read the first book in this series, Boyfriend from Hell and I loved it, so when I found out Earth Angel was coming out I had to sign up. Sometimes sequels though good are not as good as the first book. But this one was even better than the first if it was possible.
We pick up where we left off in the first one, Megan coming to terms with all the events that happened in the first book, battling Satan, falling in love with her Angel, Guy and making a new best friend. Besides nightmares that have been plaguing her, life is good. Until all Hell breaks loose, literally over a certain item she now has and has kept hidden since her battle with Satan.
What I loved about the first book and continues in this book is that I could honestly relate to Megan, even though I haven't seen my teen years in what 20 plus years, I still felt I could relate to everything Megan was dealing with. It brought back memories of some of my not so great times as well as the good times. I have to thank the author for making it so believable for me I could feel this way.
So not only does she have to deal with normal teen issues she has to battle evil again to save the angel that she loves. This book is a fantastic fast read and I urge you if you haven't read the first book then you should. If you have and liked it as much as I did, then you have to read the sequel its even better than the first.
The only thing I didn't like is I have to wait a whole year to find out what happens next, Heaven Sent is scheduled to be released in December 2012.
