'Ange' picks up a lost waif in the rain. Interesting beginning. Salacious in its implications even, for Tyler (the waif) quickly calls Ange a "pervert".

The story is expertly written, sexual situations nicely teased out, with even the ominous rise of the antagonist (Lamar) who I wanted to jump into the story to protect Tyler from.

In Stepping Up to the Plate, I really liked Angel and kind of wished that Angel had the fortitude to admit his feelings to Stacey. Even though Stacey is happy now, I can't help but think that Angel got a raw deal. I was really hoping that this sequel would give Angel the happiness he deserved. While it did to an extent with an HFN ending, I was disappointed at the length of this story. Angel got gypped again.

I was ready to punch Ange for letting Lamar win Tyler, but the end was sweet.
