Hi! I have not yet read Fallen, but did very much enjoy Unearthly. For something similar I would recommend Embrace, a new book by Jessica Shirvington. I also always always always recommend The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare. If you haven't read them, the series begins with City Of Bones and at first will seem more general sci-fi than angel specific, but the whole revolves around Nephilim - part angel/part humans! It's devine (punn intended).
Theres also a book called Clipped by Samantha Potts. It falls into the adult sci-fi section rather than teen, but reads very easily and has a feel similar to Embrace and Unearthly. Speaking of Unearthly, the second in the series is available now, too! It's titled Hallowed.
Happy reading! : )

Forbidden is a book written by a writer that we long have admired at Romantic Reads, Syrie James, and her son, Ryan M. I, as I said above, have been plowing through the angel stories lately, and this one is really, really good.
Here's the story description:
She should not exist.
He should not love her.
Claire Brennan has been attending Emerson Academy for two years now (the longest she and her mom have remained anywhere) and she’s desperate to stay put for the rest of high school. So there’s no way she’s going to tell her mom about the psychic visions she’s been having or the creepy warnings that she’s in danger.
Alec MacKenzie is fed up with his duties to watch and, when necessary, eliminate the descendants of his angelic forefathers. He chose Emerson as the ideal hiding place where he could be normal for once. He hadn’t factored Claire into his plans. . . .
Their love is forbidden, going against everything Alec has been taught to believe. But when the reason behind Claire’s unusual powers is revealed and the threat to her life becomes clear, how far will Alec go to protect her?
