Angel Eyes by Shannon Dittemore Tour Stop & GIVEAWAY
I'm happy to bring you my review of Angle Eyes for my stop on the tour.
Source: Received an eBook from the author in exchange for a fair & honest review.
Brielle is cold. She hasn't been able to get warm since moving back from the city where everything in her world fell apart. The only warm she finds is around the new boy, Jake. He's so warm. She feels better just being around him. But he might not be safe when an evil power targets him as theirs. With angels guarding, can they both be protected? Fate has brought them together but will the evil pull them apart?
4 stars - not your normal angel tale
This story is not your normal angel and demon book. For one thing, it's HEAVY on the religious themes. I, personally, didn't mind that but I think some peeps will. For another thing, this story doesn't follow the normal pattern of angels and demons, which is certainly a good thing. It's unpredictable and minus the love triangle, thanks goodness. Something else that's different is the POVs that are used. Mostly we see things from Brielle's POV but part way through the author adds the thoughts of the demon and the angel. I actually struggled with that. I was much happier with Brielle and somewhat confused at times when reading from the other POVs. It became clear, though, that that was on purpose. I got used to it and became much more content as the story went on.
I love Brielle and Jake. They have a sweet relationship that doesn't materialize out of no where. While they do have an immediate attraction, Elle fights it for quite a while. Her struggle really worked here. They are cute together. It's not super hot chemistry but I really enjoyed it.
If you like the angels stories, then this one should not be missed.
