I enjoyed this book from cover to cover. I don't usually enjoy angel romance, but there was something about this that kicked it into the LIKE gear for me.

Initial impressions:

• Don't care for the cover model. - Like that really matters, but, whatever. He looks like one of the dudes from the wolfpack in Twilight.

• The storytelling is a bit repetitive at times - it's like the author thinks we can't remember these little bits and pieces that were just relayed on previous pages. - While the effort is appreciated, I don't really need all the repetition.

• This author does write a good story. I'm not a huge fan of Angel PNR, but this is pretty good.

• Lots of action, some comedy, killer heroes that are lovable.

Hm. So the cons aren't that bad, and the pros are pretty good! I suppose one more con I could add is that I didn't think Uriel and Ellie had enough time to get to know one another to really form that bond of, well, any kind of relationship. 98% of the book took place within one week, so, I guess that's the reason why they didn't get more time together.

There was always some shit happening - someone always trying to get at Ellie. And, damn. Hot men being thrown at her from every angle. And I mean haawt. And not even men - they were like... supercharged prototype archangels. That were hawt. And powerful. And hot.

Looking forward to the next in the series.

Uriel’s eyes flew open to find a woman and a little girl standing a few feet away, beside the door of the first stall.

“I was obviously wrong,” she continued. “Because you’ve mistaken the women’s restroom for the ridiculously famous sex symbol restroom—which is next door.”"
