I really don’t know how to review this book.  I initially borrowed it because I was intrigued by the premise – heroine is a daughter of a Fallen Angel and a Guardian Angel and falls in love with a son of a Fallen Angel.  Sadly, I was wrong.  Let me start by enumerating the things that I didn’t like about this book.

 

  1. Anna Whit was sickeningly sweet.  Okay, so just because you were a daughter of a Guardian Angel doesn’t mean that you have to be a goody-two-shoes and one really really sweet that it borders on annoyance?!  Heck, she was also a daughter of a Fallen Angel so that should negated some of her goodness, right?  Anyway, I just saw her as too perfect to be a real person and a teenager at that.
  2. Step mom, Patti is very concerned about daughter but then allows said daughter to go on a road trip with certified bad boy.  I mean, Patti is a stickler for propriety BUT she allowed her daughter to go on a road trip WITHOUT chaperone with her underage daughter and she warns the boy to keep her virtue intact?  There is definitely something wrong with that.
  3. Anna was just annoying as hell.  Yes, she really was.  When she was playing bad, I didn’t see her as bad.  Her antics were just cringe worthy.
  4. Kaidan Rowe.  Yes, I admit he is described as a hunk and is very dreamy. But please, he goes out and gets laid every freaking night with a different girl just because he has to do his job as the son of the Lord of Seduction (or Lord of Sex or something) while he is falling for Anna?!  I find that really offensive.  There were quite a few times where Anna caught him with another girl and despite being hurt she just shrugs it off.
  5. Kaidan is an emancipated minor.  Riiiight.

 

All in all, I had a hard time finishing the book but because I was listening to it, I was able to tune out the boring stuff.

 

THE AUDIOBOOK

Narrated by Erin Mallon, I found the book uninteresting.  The Southern accent that she used for Anna was annoying as hell.  But then again, Anna was annoying as hell, so I really can’t blame the narrator for that, right?  Unfortunately, I wasn’t hooked, her reading, apart from Anna’s accent was okay.  I was able to finish the audiobook, though so that is a plus.
