About Catch Me When I Fall:

Recruited at his death to be a Protector of the Night, seventeen-year-old Daniel Graham has spent two-hundred years fighting Nightmares and guarding humans from the clawed, red-eyed creatures that feed off people’s fears. Each night, he risks his eternal life, having given up his chance at an afterlife when he chose to become a Protector. That doesn’t stop a burnt-out Daniel from risking daring maneuvers during each battle. He’s become one of the best, but he wants nothing more than to stop.

Then he’s given an assignment to watch over sixteen-year-old Kayla Bartlett, a clinically depressed patient in a psychiatric ward. Nightmares love a human with a tortured past. Yet, when they take a deep interest in her, appearing in unprecedented numbers, the job becomes more dangerous than any Daniel’s ever experienced. He fights ruthlessly to keep the Nightmares from overwhelming his team and Kayla. Soon, Daniel finds himself watching over Kayla during the day, drawn to why she’s different, and what it is about her that attracts the Nightmares. And him.

A vicious attack on Kayla forces Daniel to break the first Law and reveal his identity. Driven by his growing feelings for her, he whisks her away to Rome where others like him can keep her safe. Under their roof, the Protectors discover what Kayla is and why someone who can manipulate Nightmares has her in his sights. But before they can make a move, the Protectors are betrayed and Kayla is kidnapped. Daniel will stop at nothing to save her. Even if it means giving up his immortality.

About The Author: 

Adopted at three-days-old by a construction worker and a stay-at-home mom, Vicki Leigh grew up in a small suburb of Akron, Ohio where she learned to read by the age of four and considered being sent to her room for punishment as an opportunity to dive into another book. By the sixth grade, Vicki penned her first, full-length screenplay. If she couldn’t be a writer, Vicki would be a Hunter (think Dean and Sam Winchester) or a Jedi. Her favorite place on earth is Hogwarts (she refuses to believe it doesn’t exist), and her favorite dreams include solving cases alongside Sherlock Holmes.

 Vicki is an editor for Curiosity Quills Press and is represented by Sarah Negovetich of Corvisiero Literary Agency.

I was given the chance to read CATCH ME as part of the book's blog tour, and I very much enjoyed reading it!

Written from the POV of a 200 year old 'dead' soul in a living body, Daniel Graham is an angel appointed Protector. He protects a dreaming human, and his partner, while his partner weaves pleasant dreams for the slumbering person. But what does he protect them from? Nightmares. Creatures that feed on the fear of humans.

It's a dangerous job and Catchers have died, but it has to be done, and luckily, no one can see these guardians (or nightmares) unless they wish it. Which is what happens when Daniel starts watching over the sleep of a girl committed to an insane asylum.

This is a fun-to-read paranormal romance that I would certainly recommend to lovers of this genre!

  1. This sounds like an enjoyable paranormal romance. The cover definitely caught my attention. Also, the idea of a soul trapped in a body kind of reminds me of The Host, which I am sure is different, but was another book I loved that sounds a bit like this one.
