Avenger's Angel (Lost Angels #1)
Genre: Paranormal Romance
When four female angels were created for the archangels Michael, Gabriel, Uriel and Azrael, a chaos spurned by jealousy erupted, and the archesses were secreted to Earth. The four favored archangels followed, prompting a search that has lasted millennia. But for Uriel, the former Archangel of vengeance, the search ends the moment he lays eyes on Eleanor Granger, his one true archess. Can he protect her from the danger lying in wait for her - and win her heart?
The read was low to start and I was getting worried that this was going to be one of those book that I had to force myself to endure and finish, which at times I did have to do. I found all the characters a little hard to keep up with and remember their real names and roles which affected my enjoyment of the read and the ability to get truly enveloped by the story. At about half-way through I was almost prepared to give up, but I stuck with it. I finally started to find the story interesting at about chapter eight when things started to pick up and I started enjoying it. Samuel was the most irritating character in existence! He kept getting in the way and just wouldn’t stay away and let Uriel have his Archess. The steamy scene between Uriel and Eleanore was very well written, it wasn't cheesy or just there for the sake of it which is a plus.
I am so torn. I really wanted to love this, one look at the cover and how pretty it was and I had such high hopes but as it turned out, it was a case of you can’t judge a book by its cover. I would attempt to read the next in the series, but I won’t be rushing out to buy it anytime soon.
