For Ruby Moore life is far more complicated than that of your average teen, for she is in no way average. Ruby is a vampire and her life as a vampire is far from traditional.

It has been one year since her normal life was brutally taken from her. Still adjusting to the shock of the change from mortal to immortal, her world is rocked again and she is taken under the wings of

"I didn't know what tomorrow would bring, but I did know that I would be ready for it."

Some people have evil stepfathers. And some have evil stepfathers who just so happen to be ravenous vampires.

Ruby Moore's life gets turned upside down when her stepfather attacks her and her mother - draining her mother's life before her eyes and then turning Ruby into a vampire. Unfortunately for him, somehow, the turning was only half successful. Ruby still retains her original powers, powers that she got fr

Smell that? Smells like Twilight. Or maybe Halo. inhales Nah, maybe City of Bones. With a hint of Harry Potter.

Your Guardian Angel takes all those books and mashes it into...this. This horrible mess with sappy dialogue and cardboard cutout characters. I swear, it's cheesier than a Krabby Patty with extra cheese.

Since I am far too lazy to type up a proper review for this book. I will instead reveal my feelings with gifs!

I got to read 'Your Guardian Angel' prior to publication so let me start by saying that I am not the target audience for this novel. I am a grown man in his mid twenties, this book caters for young adult teenage girls. My review will be honest and not bias.

I am not much of a reader, at all but I spent all night reading Your Guardian angel. I read it one sitting and I throughly enjoyed it.

I like the chemistry between Ruby and Eli, I like the strong villain characters and surprising plot twists.

Guys- I gotta say- I loved this lil read- and will def be waiting for book two!!! What a great find!!

Our story begins with our heroine, Ruby, and her mother (both Goddesses btw) being attacked by a vampire (who ALSO happens to be the stepfather/husband)...recently turned, he craves their blood because not only incredibly "goddessly" delicious, but has powers to bring vampire appearances more in line with rest of the human population (and thus undetectable!!)

This is my review:

I enjoyed this book, I really did. I LOVE anything YA! If it has vampires, werewolves, gods, goddesses, wizards, witches, voodoo queens, fairies or even hybrid-crossed-something creatures, the chances are I will enjoy it. Your Guardian Angel was no exception.

Ruby is a bit of a complicated girl, everything that can go wrong kind of does go wrong. Vampires, boy

OMG This is one of my favorite fiction books to date! I was completely hooked right away. I have a very busy life and I just couldn't put this book down! I enjoyed so many aspects about this book, and you connect with Ruby right away. There are so many characters to like in this book. Plus you have the good vs evil aspect as well. I can't say enough about this book and every one I have shared it with has called and said, "When is the next book I NEED to know what happens!" Bravo Skyla...LOVED IT ...more

Your Guardian Angel is a fun, entertaining read. I adored the characters and loved Ruby right from the start. She is an easy to like character that you can relate to and sympathize with. Just as any teen, she can be a bit exasperating at times, but I found that quality in her to be true to teenagers and to her situation. And her situation is definitely unique.

Madi is one of those authors that makes writing seem effortless. Her style is easy to follow and engrosses you in the story from the firs

After I finished this book I was so angry, so pissed off. The whole book was perfect and then SHOT! The author decided to take us by surprise and make HIM go away. It isn't fair!

Now about the story: Ruby Moore was a vampire-goddess. Yeah, her step dad killed her mother after he became a blood sucker and then he tried to change Ruby into one. The thing is, she was protected by a spell and she didn't fully change.
After the chaos, she lived with her aunt and her cousin Camilla till some people fr

Not sure how or why I enjoyed this book...There is so much out there with vampires and angels and zombies, but for some reason I seem to be pulled in that direction, though I do read alot of everything. I liked this book. I would enjoy reading more about what happens to Ruby and her Guardian. My reviews are just a comment or two, and whether I enjoyed it or not. I loved this book. A great connection between eli and ruby. Though I had quite a bit of anger towards several characters. I hope this b

First of all I need to say that I loved the cover of this novel, also the novel was a whole new concept to me, I've never heard of anything like this.

I thought Skyla did an amazing job writing this and while some parts felt a bit lagging to me, I can't say I didn't think it was great. I was a bit frustrating while reading the novel. I felt horribly bad for some of the rules and outlines that were put into place. Also, the ending, oh man! I couldn't believe how it ended, it was really crazy and

Ok so this was the first book cover I made for limitless publishing so I figured I should buy it, and I am so glad I did! This book was so amazing that I read the whole book in one night, and then read the first half of Sun Kissed that same night because I just couldn't stop (until I passed out on my phone haha) The writing was just so great that I honestly can't believe this is her debut novel. There were just so many twist and turns that I was often left in tears on one page and squealing out ...more

2.5 stars. I enjoyed the story but felt that the book was a bit scattered at times. And the author kept going back and telling us things that we'd already learned in previous chapters. And sometimes the author would changes tenses.

At A Glance
This was a great start to a hopefully great series. The concept was pretty interesting and draws you in right away.

The Good
The beginning was like a punch in the face, but with a velvet glove. It was shocking but oh so stimulating. The story really caught my attention. All the aspects came together to make one hell of a concept: curing vampirism, a school for training gods and guardian angels, and even supernatural high school dram

I received a copy of this book for free -as part of the blog tour- in exchange for an honest review.

I’m a little surprised to say that I really liked this book! It’s been a few months since I actually read a good book featuring paranormal creatures, but The Guardian Angel exceeded my expectations

I think this was a great first installment in this series. The world Madi creates is wonderful and exciting. Pure beings such as gods, goddess, and angels share the Earth with vampires who are the exact

Luckily for me Your Guardian Angel is not just the usual vampire and human love saga (not that I don't love those books). It's really not what I expected, so I'm going to have to try to tell you how great it was without giving away major/amazing things that happen!

WOW! This book hooked me right from the start!! I was addicted and it was turning (well, you know, my blog is called The Page Turners. Lol).

I give this book 4.5 stars.

I love this book right from the start, how Ruby started by explaining how she got turned into a vampire and her mother got killed in the process. She never wanted this life, her mother was a goddess, so basically, she's half goddess, half vampire. Sounds soooo c

It was a typical YA book with an 18 year old who doesn't really trust anyone and just rushes blindly into things/choices. With the different classifications of people (gods, goddesses, guardian angels, & vampires), it reminds me of the Vampire Academy books. And of course the main character Ruby is in love with the forbidden guardian Eli.

I really enjoyed Your Guardian Angel-- like reeeallly, reealllly enjoyed it. Your Guardian Angel is Skyla Madi's first novel and so I was able to see past a few issues that I had.

I am glad I got this book. It was fun and engaging. I'll definitely be checking out more books by this author.
