That's What I'm Talking About

I generally review romance, paranormal and urban fantasy. I tend to pick review books that I want to read, so generally my reviews will be positive. I always give my honest opinion: good, bad, and indifferent.

Full Review: http://www.twimom227.com/2013/01/review-nobodys-angel-by-stacy-gail.html

Evil is among us, and investigative reporter Kendall Glynn has just enough para in her normal to realize things are not as they should be. Zeke seemingly knows more than he’s letting on, yet he attempts to discredit Kendall and turn her away from the story. He was aloof and tried to make Kendall feel stupid for believing she saw something out of the ordinary. This bothered me - knowing that Zeke and Kendall would eventually become a couple. However, I enjoyed that Kendall recognized Zeke’s attempts to discredit her, and instead of letting it bring her down, she fought harder for the truth.

Kendall is a smart woman and eventually pieces everything together. I felt that Zeke and Kendall worked well together, when he wasn’t trying to sabotage himself. I continued to be frustrated throughout the story at Zeke’s treatment of Kendall’s theories, claiming he knows more that she. I felt he belittled her one too many times.

Nobody’s Angel is an excellent introduction to Ms. Gail’s Earth Angels series. The novella-length story provides a good foundation for the series, which continues with the second book, Savage Angel (February 2013). Although sometimes the characters felt a tad over-the-top and slightly dramatic, I was impressed with the mythology, and the smexy times were hot. I look forward to more mischief from this new world created by Ms. Gail.
