Not all angels are angelic…
Thea Robinson has never needed anyone’s charity. Sure, her impoverished existence isn’t desired by most, but her ability to manipulate people’s emotions helps her to blend into the shadows of an unforgiving city. When hideous creatures threaten her life, a surly but gorgeous stranger shows up revealing a world she didn’t know exited. She refuses to put up with his rude, arrogant attitude, but how do you dismiss a warrior angel? And does she really want to when his stormy gaze sends delicious thrills straight to her core?
Cam is one of the most ruthless Power angels in the fight against evil. His devotion to kill demons has made him a celebrated warrior in the Angel Realm, even though his motivation stems from grief. When he is assigned to train and protect a half-angel just coming into her abilities, his rage is unparalleled. Until he realizes Thea isn’t like any others. She stirs a carnal passion in him that he can’t shake.
He never counted on her being so beautiful… so fierce… so most definitely his.

Firstly, I need to stress how much I am invested in this. There’s finally a series about the angel hierarchy! I loved seeing the Angel Realm, the explanation of the different systems and what some angels are meant to do. Our angel Cam, is a Power angel, and one of the best. It’s his reputation that gets him the babysitting duty of looking over Thea and preparing her for a world of demons.
The romance was pretty good. I love when the couple starts off hating or being indifferent towards each other until everything that happens gets them together. In their case, it was their struggle to be vulnerable that eventually resulted with them coming together. There was a lot of drama with the insecurities, something both entertaining and taxing, and though the ending was especially uuggghhh I still thought it was pretty satisfying. The beginning wasn’t very strong for me, but once things were introduced, it got a lot better. I look forward to checking out the next installment.
