Selene is a very sympathetic characters and someone the reader can really get behind. I also liked the supporting cast who were all well realised.
This book launches you into the action straight away and that fast pace remains right through, keeping you turning the pages, eager for more.
The story idea was well co...more
Angel, Vampires & Demons, oh my! This was a great read. I loved Cole and Selene's story -- and it was made even more interesting wit...more
Oh my goodness, Ashley Robertson really starts this story off with a kick! Immediately we are thrown right into the action, with flashbacks, angels, demons, and vampires! UnGuarded was my first book about angels and I absolutely adored it. I loved learning about the angel hierarchy, their duties, and their enemies.
Selene, an angel, is distraught because her vampire lover Cole has been kidnapped, and it's her fault. Now she has to make a choice: she...more
What immediately drew me to this novel was the cover! It’s beautiful – simple, yet stunning. I know I shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but I will tell you that it definitely caught my attention. It made me want to know more about the girl on the cover, and what the title “UnGuarded” had to do with her.
Selene is a Guardian Angel that was a step away from becoming an Archangel, the most supreme of all beings. But, when she...more
It is not the typical vampires versus werewolves and the human lover. Good and evil have joined and twisted this love story to a series of events leaving the reader anxious for the sequel. Each chapter depicts a vivid picture of an angel and a vampire emotionally involved, demons roaming the earth hungry for humans, and humans are victims of a war between heaven and hell.. Unguarded has finally opened the doors to a new and higher level of urban fantasy tha...more

Against the archangel's warning she has been spending way too much time in human form bonding th her charge. These moments have also allowed Selene to-do the un...more
As soon as you delve into UnGuarded you are launched into action right off the bat, which I enjoyed, and it keeps with that same pace throughout the whole book. It is filled with angels, demons, vampires and a few immortals. Good versus evil is what this book is all about. What would you do for the love of your life? Would you risk one person for another? Would you risk your life for that of a person you care about? Those are the...more
Unguarded, I will say, has potential. The plot is intriguing, the drama is thick and runs through the entire novel, and the writing is well done. The chemistry between Luke and Selene was electric, and pulsed right off the page, easily drawing me into the book. Finally! A love story where the girl and/or the guy doesn't immediately fall in love and forget everything else in the world, besides the other member of the relationship! How many times have I whined about that, guys? Seriously.
If any of you reading this have read some of my reviews before this you know I NEVER give out 1/2 stars. I stick to solid numbers. But with this book I find myself unable to stick to my normal, and I have to give it a 1/2 star.
Lori and I were offered this book by the Author to review, and even though Angels are not really my thing, the description captivated me and I really wanted to read this one. This is a solid book, good writing, mostly likable characters, good plot, battle of good...more
Unlike Kami I have a thing for angels. This however is different then all the other angel books I have read. Selene is a guardian angel. Not a nephilim. Not a big bad fallen angel. Etc. Etc. She is truly an angel. I found that very refreshing and new and great.
The writing was top of the line. I know there are people out in reading land that hat...more
While she still has enough guardian abilities to watch over her human charge, Caitlyn, Selene knows that loving Cole comes with a risk – she could become a fallen a...more

Who ever heard of coming at a love story, half-way through? I certainly haven't. Who would've thought that it'd work?! OHMYGOODESNESS, does it work!
From the moment I read the first page of UnGuarded I was in it. There was no stopping me. Not my kids. Not my husband. Nada. I couldn't wait to get "just one more page" (YEAH RIGHT!) in before I had to put...more
This book was so exciting! I was sucked it from the very beginning. I loved getting to see all the flashbacks and memories. It really helped me understand the story more, and make it seem more real to me. I felt like I was actually there. Sometimes though I felt a little confused and lost. Also some parts kind of dragged on for me.
Selene made a lot of mistakes but she did everything she could to fix them and save the people she loves. She was such a strong female lea...more
An action packed story with plenty of the supernatural and an unusual love triangle.
The story starts off with Selene already in love with Cole. There are flashbacks throughout the story and of course plenty of interaction throughout the book, but we never do learn how they met or fell in love. I would love to read a book about how the two fell in love. I don't usually compare books in reviews, but I found myself comparing...more
What initially drew me to this book was the beautiful cover, but after reading the blurb I was very excited. An angel falling in love with a vampire? I've never heard of such a thing. In the beginning my heart absolutely ached for Selene and her missing lover. But then I found myself getting frustrated with her, because she was ignoring an angels most importa...more

In a nut shell: good story, pace was a little slow, connected more with Luke than anyone else… Selene was ok though
My Rating: 3.5/5
I really liked this story idea. Guardian Angel falls in love with a Vampire… good loves bad… forbidden love… yep it is all of that – everything we love, right?!...more
