Book Description

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."


Editorial Reviews

Review

APPLAUSE FOR BOYFRIEND FROM HELL

"E. Van Lowe puts a fantastic new spin on the young adult paranormal romance, and I for one fell for it hook, line, and sinker." -Shari Bergquist, My Neurotic Book Affair

"Boyfriend from Hell is a fun tongue-in-cheek story that starts with a laugh and keeps them coming."  -Penelope Adams, Paranormal Romance Guild

"A thrilling suspense/mystery/fantasy book mixed with reality and some romance scenes that will get you hooked up till the end." -Lalaine Faye, Lalaine's Fiction Book Reviews

"Boyfriend From Hell was a great surprise. I didn't know what to expect before reading it but it was a fast and fun read that made me laugh more than once. What made Boyfriend from Hell unique to me was the sometimes tongue-in-cheek tone it had. It's a great YA that's also poking fun at some of the predictable Young Adult clichés. If you like paranormal YA but sometimes find yourself rolling your eyes at the way the characters are acting, you'll love this book too." -Lisa Choboter, Cold Moon Violet Books

"E. Van Lowe's fluid and masterful writing made this book one that I needed to finish." -Elizabeth Talbott, Fishmuffins of Doom


"I always enjoy a fun paranormal YA read, and Boyfriend From Hell by E. Van Lowe certainly came through on both the fun and the paranormal." -Nicole Etolen, Pretty Opinionated

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars I am a fan!!! June 4, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I am a fan!!!

I don't like giving away the story line in my reviews. I was hooked the moment I started reading! I really enjoyed every part of this story. Megan is a typical teenager but not an annoying one! She had me laughing at most of the things she said & did. This is a young adult book with a small amount of romance, but nothing inappropriate. All the characters in this book were interesting; there wasn't one I didn't like. I enjoyed this book so much; as soon as I was done I bought the next in the series Earth Angel! I can't wait to read the next one!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Maybe it was not my style? March 25, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Boyfriend From Hell was one of those books that I just couldn't get into; possibly because I couldn't choke up sympathy for any of the main charactors. I love young adult books that are well written and have flawed charactors who find themselves but the storyline seemed stiff and the urgency and love for mom and her teenage daughter never developed.... for me.

When Mom insists she is going to begin dating and her daughter becomes jealous the rest of the story seemed to follow some diagram for story-telling. I kept thinking it would get more interesting, but, alas, it never did.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hell on Earth August 19, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Wanting a tale about Love and finding it in the wrong places and with the wrong people ? For as long as Megan can remember , it has just been her and her mum Suze. Their close relationship reminded me throughout the novel like Gilmore Girls with Rory and Lorelai. Something that many of us envy. When Suze decides it's time to start dating and getting out on the bandwagon , Megan is repulsed. How can her mum start dating and isn't she supposed to be the one dating as the daughter ? We read as Megan and her two best friends Erin and Matt , help decide what to do in Operation Stop Suze Dating. As the novel gets on we soon discover that Megan and Suze both have dates - Megan's with a new guy from Mathletes and he's WOWZA too - Guy and Suze with art gallery owner Armando. Is this true love and meant to be or is it as we discover something more sinister as the two guys aren't who they seem. One is a Guardian Angel sent to protect Megan and her mother Suze , the other is in fact Satan in disguise and he's on the look to make Megan and Suze an addition to his home in Hell. We also read and discover what happens when hurt and jealousy begins to flood the lives of others in the story.

For a fun , supernatural light-hearted romance check out E. Van Lowe's new novel "Boyfriend From Hell".

2.0 out of 5 stars Flat, forced, couldn't finish April 26, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am not one to give up on a book, but I couldn't finish this one.

It didn't flow well, and the writing seemed forced. There was a huge disconnect with what was supposed to be happening and what was actually occurring with the characters.

The characters seemed flat and forced, and I'm still not sure that there was a plot beyond mom and daughter both desperately needing a man/boy in their lives. None of it worked for me, but that's not to say someone else won't enjoy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! Talent. September 30, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm going to start out by saying that after two years of cringing at the first paragraphs of many YA fantasy novels, and being disappointed that I didn't care to read them, Boyfriend from Hell was finally my breath of fresh air. I wasn't certain at first that I would keep going, but part of that whole not knowing what I was getting myself into, was intriguing enough. I pressed on. Not two pages further: hooked. I could say it was Megan's obviously close relationship with her mother that drew me in, or the fact that the dialogue was ringing so true to life, but that wasn't it. It was E. Van Lowe's crisp focus, attention to flow, ability to edit, and expert eye on the language of an advanced high-school teenage girl. WOW! I did read in the acknowledgements where he thanked certain people for their insight and assistance. Very gracious of him, and the teamwork that happened here paid off.

There are many books out there with angel/demon/heaven/hell themes, and as a bookie, I would probably try to give many of them a chance, but if things don't feel new, fresh, and organic to me, I can't do it. I had no problem with Boyfriend from Hell. Megan was very real, very honest, and very fifteen. I disagree with folks who describe her as self-absorbed with almost a hint of disdain. She's fifteen. I, for one, remember vividly being that age, and as someone who's always been described by friends, elders, and my own mother, as being an almost celestially compassionate human...I was also self-absorbed, dramatic, selfish, and at times ruthless with my tongue. The point of coming of age stories is that, that the character doesn't speak false "adult talk" which has a nasty habit of ripping the reader's eyes from the page like a rocket.

More About the Author

Hi there! I'm E. Van Lowe, an author, television writer, screen-writer, playwright and producer who has worked on such shows as "The Cosby Show," "Even Stevens," and "Homeboys In Outer Space." I have been nominated for an Emmy and an Academy Award. My first YA novel, "Never Slow Dance With A Zombie," is a zombie horror novel with a comedic twist. It was a selection of The Scholastic Book Club, and a nominee for an ALA Award.

My YA paranormal novel "Boyfriend From Hell," the first book in the Falling Angels Saga, came out September 2011 and has received mostly 4 and 5 star reviews. "Earth Angel," the second in the saga, came out in December 2011 with equally good reviews. The third book, Heaven Sent, came out December 2012 and is continuing the trend of rave reviews.

The first book in my Hollyweird series, "The Zombie Always Knocks Twice" is now available as well. It's another humorous zombie story, this time taking place in the world of Hollywood California. Another zombie story??? Yep. I've got zombies on the brain.

I write just about every day. I write all over the house, but my favorite spot is the dining room. It puts me closer to the food. In fact, I'm in the dining room right now (*munch, munch*).
