Cameo Renae has blown me away once again. She made my heart melt. Alex and Eden's connection is one you can't help but fall for. I loved being introduced to new characters as well as seeing some of the old characters from Hidden Wings. I really love the Hidden Wings Series and was so excited for this spin off. Cameo's writing is truly magical, she pulls her readers in straight from the start. Once you read the first page, you wont be able to put it down til the end, then youll be left with a boo ...more

Sigh... oh how I love this world that Cameo has created! Alex, an amazing Guardian that we got the pleasure of meeting in the Hidden Wings series, is on an assignment that is going to change his world forever.
Eden is a mortal who has seen a darkling and survived, and now she is in grave danger. Enter Alex and an amazingly swoon worthy, action packed adventure that will have you flying through the pages.
We get some fun visits with old friends, and get to meet some fantastic new ones. I am truly

I like books about angels, fallen angels, Heaven and Hell. That being said I was really excited to review Guarding Eden. It’s supposed to be a standalone, starting a spin off series of the Hidden Wing Series, but I felt a little lost without having read the Hidden Wing Series before. There were a lot of characters mentioned shortly who somehow influenced the male MC during his life, but without the background information I was a little confused by t

WOW Cameo Renae has slayed me again! I love her writing weither it be Dystopian (After Light Saga), In My Dream Duet, Angels & Demons (Hidden Wings Series) or this new spin off the Midway Novel's (Again Angels & Demons). You can tell with her writing she has a passion for her characters and the world they live in.

In the Midway Novel Guarding Eden you get a chance to see some of your favorite characters from the Hidden Wings series if you missed them a bit. You even get to embrace the love for t

I swear every time this women writes a book, I'm glued to it. She has this ability to suck you into a magical world she's created, and you never want to leave.

Now. Although Dom is my favorite from the Hidden Wings series, I loved reading about Alex, he's such a sweet, caring guardian who protects with everything in him.

And Eden, everything happening to her, most people would freak and run the opposite direction. Not this girl, she's a champ. Willing to keep those she loves safe and keep moving

Wow. Just wow. I was so happy when Ms Renae announced that she is writing this book! Yes I hoped I will get Dom's story first but hey I won't complain as she gave me glimpses of him *sigh*

This book is everything that I expected from the spin-offs. You have the old characters but it's so easily to follow the story without reading the other books. But why would you miss on this awesome series?

Alexander's story is beautifully written, funny, emotional and just perfect. The turmoil he and Eden go th

Omg I couldn't put this book down. It should come with a warning label that this book is highly addictive. The only way I can describe this book is that it was written perfectly. I could picture it in my head like I was watching a movie. Thank you for allowing me to be part of your arc team Cameo Renea and I can't not wait for the next adventure ...more

This story was just AH-MAZ-ING!!! Reading it made me realise how much I've missed reading stories about Angels. It was definitely a refreshing much needed change.

Cameo Renae is such a brilliant storyteller, her words captured me completely, I just fell in love with this story and it's characters.

I have to say besides the two main characters Alex and Eden, I just adored Sabastian, he was one of Eden's best friends and whenever he was there I was laughing my head off. He's definitely one that li

I've read all but one of this author's books and I've read her Hidden Wings series and I loved that series a lot, so I was really, really excited when a spin-off series was announced! I waited patiently for this book to release and then grabbed a copy as soon as it did!

I was so excited when I heard this author was doing a spin off to The Hidden Wings series. I am a 100% #TeamKade, but I love getting to know all the other guardians, as well. And I can't wait who is going to be the next guardian in this series.
When Alex graced us with his presence in this book, you really get to see him, for him. Even though he was a big character in The Hidden Wings series, this story is all his, well and of course Eden's. But wow, who know Alex could be such a heart throb??? M

I absolutely love each and every word in Guarding Eden!
I felt like I have laughed, cried, and celebrated love with each turn of the page. I love how the characters all grow through the book, and how they are all intertwined.
Eden is a wonderful soul that I really feel I could connect with. I love it!!!
Alex.... oh sweet Alex!! He never pushes, is always the gentleman and is totally there for everything Eden needs. Truly what you would imagine a guardian angel to be like!!

If you've read the Hidden Wings series or are a fan of angels, then this book is for you!!
While the Midway Novels are considered stand-alones, they do take place after the Hidden Wings series and that series fills in some gaps and will give the reader a more thorough experience in Guarding Eden.
Action, adventure, hilarious best friends, romance and a forbidden, intense attraction makes this the perfect getaway book!

Diving back into this amazing world that Cameo has created is exciting and wonderful.
A spirited young high school girl Eden has no idea that her world is about to flip upside down. Along side Alex who is in an angel in more than just the literal sense. This pair takes you to a whole new look on life.
I love how this ties into Hidden Wings, yet keeps itself as a standalone novel.
This story is a thrilling ride of emotions! Keeps you wanting more. Very hard to put down! I love this story! I cant w

Great spin-off

Love the story about Alexander and Eden!!! I’m so glad there was a spin off and that it renamed characters from the previous series. Which is a must read by the way! A lot of action, forbidden attraction and humor was in the story and I honestly recommend the read!

Guarding Eden by Cameo Renae was a fast paced, keep you on the edge of your seat kind of book! This book grabbed me from page one and wouldn’t let me put it down. I was sucked into the world of Eden and Alex and couldn’t wait to see what would happen! I enjoyed the dynamic between Eden and her friends and how close they are. I truly love the world the author has created from the guardians to fallen, to so many secretes not every human knows about. I can’t wait to read more from this author.

This book is a spin off of "The Hidden Wings" series by Cameo Renae. It is among my favorite young adult series. It’s about Fallen angels and a girl who is about to become come into power at the age of 18. A Nephilim. I love books on angels and Nephilim, so when Cameo announced she was writing a spin-off, I was so excited.

"Guarding Eden" is the first book in the spin-off. Is about a young girl named Eden. She attends a boarding school in Washington state and in a few weeks, she will be graduatin

2 days. I read this book in 2 days. The only reason it took me that long was because things like ‘sleep’ and ‘responsibility’ kept getting in my way. As a huge Hidden Wings fan, I majorly had my hopes up about this book, and KNEW I would not be disappointed. Cameo Renae does not write bad books. It’s the easiest decision in the world which book to pick up if one of those choices is her book.

I was super curious to find out how the Hidden Wings world would continue, yet this new series could also

Can be read as a stand alone, but also a spin off from the Hidden wings Series.

A story about Angels and Nephilim told beautifully. A stunning flawless read!

I must admit I am new to Cameo's Books. I have a couple of her digital copies sitting on my Kindle but as of yet, they have gone unread due to my reviewing so many other books.
Wow just wow I am so pleased to have finally read one of Cameo's books.

Cameo Renae is a genius of the highest order, this girl can write, she sets the scene beautifully, with great detail to the surrounding areas, you can picture the scenes in your head like a movie and that is because Miss Renae has built it up properly, not left us with titbits here and there, it is a full on masterpiece, how this has not been picked up for TV, I don't know, The characters are not your basic characters, she has written them with great love, you can tell she poured her heart into

After escaping its clutches and making it back to her room, she questions whether what she saw was real. The next day in walks Alex West, a transfer student who isn

This is a great start to a new series by Cameo Renae. It is a spinoff from the Hidden Wings series. You don’t need to read Hidden Wings first. I have read the first three Hidden Wings books, but it’s been three years. I think there is a re-read in my near future.

Eden East is at a boarding school. She’s getting ready to turn eighteen and graduate high school. She has three amazing best friends.

One night, everything changes because she saw a creature.

Loved it!!

The Hidden Wings series was one of the first book series that I had read on my kindle. Was saddened to see it end. But, when I had heard that Cameo Renae was writing a spin off called " Midway" , I was ecstatic!!

This is a trilogy, and I have a little rule with "series" amongst books. I won't start it til all the books are out. The Midway series is complete, and it delivered all I had hoped it would. Books 2 & 3 are waiting for me to devour.....
