I think the book was written by an amateur It didn't make sense half the time. It didn't describe things well. The grammar wasn't very good. It was hard to distinct what was said out loud and what was said inside the persons head with the same font as everything else and parenthesis around them just like they're normal statments. The author would say one thing then say something completely different later on in the story. For example, In the beginning as far as I understood she had just move the ...more

WOW!!!! I couldn't put this book down. The is an amazing love story with a tie in to religion and guardian angels. Also, there is talk about soul mates. It is about finding your true love and loosing that love. For me, it is about overcoming a tragedy and believing you can get passed that loss. It is about trusting in yourself and instincts.

I wish Tristan actually existed; I can't speak for every girl, but he seems like that perfect guy if someone can be perfect. I am sucker for a great love st

What can I say about the Kissed By an Angel trilogy... hhmmmm. The first book was alright. I wish that Ms. Chandler would have played up the romance between Ivy and Tristan a little more. It was really hard to feel the emmotion of the characters. But I cannot complain too much on the subject because, once I started reading the second book, I was hooked and couldn't put my kindle down. I am a big fan of mystery, and the second and third books definitely have alot of it.

Spoiler Alert! Do not read

This book is just AMAZING! I love everything! combination of romance and mystery. Oh by the way.. it's a tear-jerker too.

It's about Ivy and Tristan, they were so deeply in love. An accident changed everything. Tristan died in the accident leaving Ivy hurting and depressed, that she lost her faith in Angels.. Tristan became an angel and met Lacey Lovitt, another angel that taught him how to communicate Ivy and try to make her believe in angels.

Tristan found out that their accident wasn't really

This is one of the first books I added to-read when I joined Goodreads in February 2011.

This book is an omnibus of the first three books in the Kissed By An Angel series: Kissed By An Angel; The Power of Love; and Soulmates.

I rate Kissed By An Angel 2 stars, The Power of Love 2 stars, and Soulmates 4 stars. By the law of averages that makes this omnibus a 2.5 rating. Although there are no distinct markings to direct where one book ends, it's very obvious when you start a new chapter and go throu

Ivy and Tristan are meant to be together. Both stunningly attractive, brilliantly talented and very much in love, they think their happiness will last forever. When a terrible car accident shatters their world, killing Tristan and injuring Ivy, she must face life alone - or so she thinks. However, Tristan is watching over her as her guardian angel - so close she can feel his touch and hear his voice. And no one needs a guardian angel more than Ivy, because someone is trying to kill her. But if T ...more

A este libro le tengo un montón de cariño porque fue el primer regalo que me hizo Vero. Me lo regaló por mi cumpleaños, y por suerte pudo entregármelo en persona el día que pude abrazarla por primera vez. Mi querida niña es una persona adorable y detalles como éste los valoro un montón. Eres genial, mi princesita♡.

Total waste of time. The writing is poor. The book menandered and seemed way too long. The action scenes are anti-climatic. The best chemistry is with her and antagonist. The love story the book is based on is so weak that I couldn't have care less if they were together or not. All the characters were very flat. I had a hard time picturing who they were and even what they looked like. The ending was extremely rushed!

Additionally, this book is being sold with all the other YA - fantasy books that

Diane ϟ [ Lestrange ]
As result of her mother's new marriage, Ivy and her brother Philip are forced to move to the biggest house in Stonehill, with all the wants and needs of life. She had to adjust to a new school halfway through the year, make new friends, and deal with a new, and creepy, if I might add, stepbrother, Gregory. Her true and strong belief in angles, her love for piano, and her cat, Bella, were all she had left of her real home. One the first day of school, Ivy learned about one thing, Tristan. He fell ...more

Shelves: teen-books, chick-lit
OK, so in order to give 5 stars, I think a book should intrigue me intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually. Rarely does a novel do all three- especially a young adult novel. That said, I think this comes close enough. Plus, I couldn't stop reading it.

Intellectually: At least if I hadn't read it before, I would be constantly guessing what would happen next. The end is fairly predictable, but there is enough adventure in the whole plot to keep me putting the pieces together. It may not strike

Había leído tantos buenos comentarios y tantas críticas positivas que tenía que leerlo y comprobar por mí misma si los rumores eran ciertos. Y puedo decir que sí, que es uno de los libros que más me ha gustado últimamente y lo recomiendo 100% a todos aquellos que os gusten los libros románticos y emotivos.


Además, un punto muy positivo de Almas Gemelas es que la editorial ha juntado en un solo ejemplar los tres que formaban la trilogía en inglés. Es de agradecer sobre todo para aquellos que las s

I read this book over a year ago, so this review will probably be quite short.
This edition has book 1, 2 and 3 of the Kissed by an Angel series in. I am starting book 4 today so thought I would write a quick review of my thought on the first 3 books in the series. I am going to count all 3 as 1 book though because that's how it felt when I was reading it.

I absolutely love this book! When I first ordered it from the library I didn't touch it for a while resulting in the library calling for it back. When I gave it back I thought it was simply about a girl who's boyfriend comes back as her guardian angel and that's it. But I was so wrong! This book was soooooo much more than that and even had some pretty brutal/disturbing scenes...


I'm really glad I'd re-ordered this book cause there was loads of suspense and PLENTY of action not to mention some sho

Man, this book was good, when I first started reading this book, I knew Gregory was the because of Tristin dying. Even on the second page of the book I was like Gregory is up to no good. He did all of that for what to keep Ivy quite or because he didn't want Ivy to live with Andrew, who isn't his father. I'm so glad he died, in the end, he was starting to get on my last nerves. My only wish was for Tristen to become human again. And wish he actually knew that Lacey actually in love w

I will always love her Dark Secrets series the best! This one, not as much because I didn't like Ivy that much. I would have liked Tristan more if he wasn't constantly moaning over Ivy. Yet in the end, the both of them had a mystery to solve, and Ivy is your classic damsel in distress while Tristan is the classic hero. Overall a relatively quick read.

Kissed By an Angel is a re-packed edition of three short books: Kissed By an Angel, The Power of Love, and Soulmates. These books were originally published around 1995 (I can't remember the exact date.)

KISSED BY AN ANGEL: Ivy isn't into boys that way her best friend, Suzanne is, and she has too much going on in her life for a relationship anyway. Everyone keeps trying to set her up with a shy, awkward swimmer from her school named Tristan. When her mother gets married, Ivy is stuck moving in to

I love this novel. It takes you through so many twists and turns, one minute you are feeling pain, and misery and do not know how it could get any worse, and the next you are elated and shouting for joy. This collection of 3 novels was written in 1995. The author Elizabeth Chandler wrote a 4th book in the series in 2010. I found this out recently and knew it would be great and worth a 15 year wait. I just re-read this book and am just as in Love with Tristan and Will as I ever have been.

So I'm not gonna lie, I bought this book for the cover artwork! It was a little bit reminiscent of Twilight, so I couldn't resist. However, I ended up reallllyyyy loving it! I would've given it 4 1/2 star if I could. The first part of the book started of a little (okay a lot!) corny, and definitely felt like the young adult readers it was categorized for. The whole Tristan and Ivy love story was a tad rushed and overdone, making it feel a little like a Harlequin novel, but once you got past that ...more

This book was definitely not as good as I thought it would be. I picked it up because I was going to be dog-sitting for a couple of weeks and needed something to do. This book caused me physical anguish just trying to get through it!

It's definitely written for a younger age group, maybe 11 or 12 year olds. The writing style isn't very amazing.

The book is essentially 3 books in one. Book one was bearable, though still not very good. It got the plot moving. Book two! Oh my gosh, it took me 4 mon

This book actually made me cry. Seriously. Couldn't stop. Especially the stuff with Tristan and for some reason, also when she was making out with Greg. Don't know why. Maybe because I got so mad at Ivy for doing it. Why did she kiss him, anyway? It was obvious he was evil, and he was crule to her brother. She still loved tristan and Will, but she goes and kisses him, anyway. It just grossed me out to oblivion.
I don't think I'll be reading it again, mostly because books like these make me cry an

I love these books. I started with Soulmate. I just grabbed it while walking though the bookstore and then I had to buy the first two to find out what happened. The love between Tristan and Ivy is so real and tender that the book seriously made me cry. Elizabeth Chandler weaves a love story with a mystery so well that in the end you are praying for the bad guy to be gone and for Ivy to fall in love again.

“I wouldn't have been sent back to help you," Tristan continued. "I wouldn't have been made an angel if it weren't important that you live, Ivy. I want you to be mine" -Ivy could hear the pain in his voice- "but you're not."

"I am!" she cried out loud.

"We're on different sides of a river," he said, "and it's a river that neither of us can cross. You were meant for somebody else.”
