Adorable start to a great series
on 28 April 2015
Anna Whitt has always known she is different. Raised by her protective adopted mom, Patti, Anna has led a pretty sheltered life. She is good, kind and sweet with huge compassion for others. Yet, she struggles with an inexplicable inner pull towards alcohol and drugs.
When she meets bad-boy 'man-slut' rocker, Kaidan Rowe, her life turns upside down in a flash. Kaidan helps her come to terms with who she really is and in the process she falls deeply in love with him. Kaidan blows hot and cold and she never knows how he feels about her.
Thrust into a world of angels, demons and Nephilim, Anna has to keep her wits about her if she is to survive this new reality. When she reconnects with her dad, she is strengthened by the force of his love and support. One of the things I loved most about this series was the importance of family and it was refreshing to see a strong mother and father figure.
This book sucked me in immediately and held my attention the entire time. I adored Wendy's writing style and there are some really sweet romantic moments and some laugh out loud funny parts.
I loved Kaidan's sharp British wit and his all round sexiness. It's a little disturbing to learn what he has to do for 'work' but Wendy never glamorizes it.
All in all this was a fantastic read and I'm looking forward to continuing this series.
Footnote: In the Lux series, Kat and Daemon take on fake identities in the name of Anna Whitt and Kaidan Rowe. I was intrigued enough by this mention to check out this series. I'm so glad I did. I guess I now have something else to thank Jennifer L. Armentrout for!
