Not all angels are angelic…
Thea Robinson has never needed anyone’s charity. Sure, her impoverished existence isn’t desired by most, but her ability to manipulate people’s emotions helps her to blend into the shadows of an unforgiving city. When hideous creatures threaten her life, a surly but gorgeous stranger shows up revealing a world she didn’t know existed. She refuses to put up with his rude, arrogant attitude, but how do you dismiss a warrior angel? And does she really want to when his stormy gaze sends delicious thrills straight to her core?
Cam is one of the most ruthless Power angels in the fight against evil. His devotion to kill demons has made him a celebrated warrior in the Angel Realm, even though his motivation stems from grief. When he is assigned to train and protect a half-angel just coming into her abilities, his rage is unparalleled. Until he realizes Thea isn’t like any others. She stirs a carnal passion in him that he can’t shake. He never counted on her being so beautiful… so fierce… so most definitely his.
◄◄ My Thoughts ►►
This is a good start to a new series. The concept and storyline are engaging and new (at least to me). I was very intrigued and look forward to more of Cam and Thea’s story!
Here’s the breakdown: Thea’s had a hard life. She does what she has to do to survive, which includes a few side jobs. During one such job, she notices strange creatures all around. She soon determines that other humans can’t see them. Eventually, they attack and she uncovers the truth about the existence of Angels and Demons.
Here’s what I enjoyed: For the most part, Thea is a kickass character. She’s strong, independent, and fearless. I love strong heroines, so she was definitely a plus!
The tension between Cam and Thea. Holy hell, it was hot! I’m not always a fan of slow burn, but there was just the right amount of tension and longing between these two before they finally got together.
The storyline is new and refreshing. I haven’t read much Angel/Demon fantasy romance so I really enjoyed the story.
Overall, a solid effort by a new to me author! I’ll definitely read more.
I rate it: 3.75 Stars
