Series: Earth Angels book 2
Author: Stacy Gail
Genre: Paranormal, Romance
Book Blurb: Feel nothing. Sara Savitch’s personal mantra has been hard to live by ever since her torrid one-night stand with army doctor Gideon Mandeville. Descended from the Seraphim, angels known as heaven’s soldiers, Sara may be an expert fighter, but she’s an amateur when it comes to relationships.
Physically unharmed, but still battle-scarred, Gideon has returned to Dallas in the hopes of regaining his faith in humanity—and in himself. Instead he’s walked into a nightmare. His father is on a serial killer’s hit list, and has hired a personal bodyguard—the very woman who has haunted Gideon’s dreams for a year.
As Sara works to build an impenetrable fortress around her client, she yearns to tear down the one around Gideon’s heart. With his bitter rejection of warriors, will he ever be able to accept her true nature? Sara must find a way to trust Gideon with her secret as the killer closes in.
First I will tell you this book isn’t very long. It is only 163 pages. Normally this would disappoint me, however; the story didn’t come across as rushed. Sara looks like every woman wants to look. She is in actuality “made in heaven.” She has no clue how to talk to men unless it is about the job. Who can figure out the way men think anyway? Gideon is a man’s man who is both handsome and strong, but has quite a bit of baggage from his tour in Iraq.
The problems start when Gideon’s father requests Sara be point as his security, while a serial killer is out for him. Gideon isn’t ready for a relationship after coming back from the war, but has been thinking about their one-night-stand the entire time he was overseas. Sara obviously never told Gideon what she really is, and is even more scared now since he never really spoke to her while he was gone.
Neither seem to know how to handle each other, but quickly make up for it in the bedroom. The serial killer plot gets pushed to the side for the middle of the story as you focus on the budding relationship between Gideon and Sara. The love scenes are nice and well written, but I would have liked to see a little more interaction between the two main characters before she goes all heroic and is thrust into his constant company.
All in all, it is a good read and perfect for a lazy Saturday afternoon.
