A supernatural novel where in a Guardian Angel falls for his human who is the daughter of a notorious business man. This is a forbidden attraction and a risk to Nina the girl who the bad guys are after!! The first half of the book was great. The romance was set up nicely and the main story arc staged well. The characters introduced had interest and the story seemed to have a lot of life in it. About a third of the way in however the book lost momentum. It concentrated too heavily on romantic angst and immature devices to protract the romance and I did lose a little interest in Nina. There were story threads left unexplored and the supernatural elements could have been given more explanation. The book is redeemed by the end which at least it does have! No cliffhangers, always a positive to me! I will check out the reviews on the following books but at the moment I am happy to leave it here.

To say this appears to have been Jamie Mcguire's first book, I think it was very good. Having read "Beautiful Disaster" I had high hopes for this book and also very interested to see how this story would go being supernatural/paranormal (whatever) as opposed to the normal/everyday world of beautiful disaster. I was not disappointed!!

As a "twilight" fan, I'm not surprised of comparisons however I think it should be remembered that the Twilight Saga was not the first "supernatural/paranormal love story" ever written, nor does it contain the first love triangle ever written so really these comparisons I feel are unfair.

Back to the point, the story quickly had me immersed, Nina does start out pretty vulnerable and it does seem a little strange how quickly she finds herself almost obsessed with Jared but that said, the book starts with the death of her father and how her world has come crashing down given how much she adored him so as a reader, I can understand why her emotions are odd and make little sense at the beginning of their interaction!!

The characters were all convincing, with Claire (Jared's sister) being a highlight.

I especially enjoyed the injections of humour throughout this book to lighten the mood and add to the story. Like Beautiful Disaster, I couldn't put this story down and really enjoyed every part of it, immediately moving onto sequel "Requiem" when I finished the last page. I highly recommend!!

I never like rubbishing any author as I can't claim to have written any books let alone sell some but come on..... I've yet to experience a more cringeworthy description of two people ( well, one and a half actually) getting it together.

This shouldn't be under whatever section I found it in it should be amongst the dross my other half drags on holiday with her and hence, something I usually avoid like an STD. I groaned out loud, just like our heroine, but for entirely different reasons. If you saw two people carrying on like this pair in public you'd throw more than a bucket of cold water at them. It spoilt what was an interesting, if slightly corny, idea but hey, the author has written a trilogy so this clearly has a market. I've seen Twilight mentioned in other reviews, thanks for the warning, I'll be steering clear of that an' all.

And as a parting shot, if our heroine got a decent haircut she'd save herself countless hours 'flicking her bangs from her eyes'. Just a suggestion :)

I am three quarters of the way through this book and I don't know why. It is utter rubbish. And NOW if find it's a trilogy. The end, going to erase it.

So many things irritated me about this book and I failed to become engrossed in it at any stage, although I did only manage a quarter of it. Unfortunately after this the writing became too much for me to deal with. Specific things that I did not like were; 1) the development of relationships was too fast and unrealistic (also boring), 2) the references to Oklahoma - there is a part in the book where a girl is protesting the importance of Oklahoma in which the author has entered into a search engine 'inventions from Oklahoma' and listed them off in a horribly unrealistic way of talking, 3) really why read this when on the kindle store you can read classics like Dickens and Dostoyevsky for free too? I'm sorry I wasted my time in this garbage and encourage you not to do the same.
