CONTENT WARNING: Due to adult sexual situations and language, this novel may not be appropriate for readers under 18.
If you are looking for an intense, passionate love so wrong it is right, a story about losing your way but clawing desperately at any chance to find your way back, about hanging on to your last shred of sanity and trusting someone enough to let go of your fears, look no further. No One's Angel's angel is a New Adult (NA) Contemporary Romance about a girl learning to fight back and a boy learning to let go. 
Tess used to spend more hours than she'd care to admit playing her favorite computer game, using the nickname Angel. She could pretend her life was different, and she could pretend Arion was just a friend. But a girl needs more to keep her warm at night than pixels, and she traded her virtual heaven for a real-life hell. Now she's on the run from a past she won't talk about, and the only place she has to go is the doorstep of the friend she's never actually met.

When Angel disappeared from their nightly games, it nearly destroyed Arion. He threw himself into work and women, but he can't help knowing the one-night stands will never compare to the angel who haunts his dreams. At first, when she shows up soaking wet and scared-shitless on his doorstep, he thinks his prayers have been answered. But the more Arion tries to keep Angel close, the more her fear drives her away. If they are ever going to have a chance for a future, they'll first have to deal with the past that hasn't forgotten her any more than she's forgotten it--and Arion will have to learn how to let her go.

What I LIKED about this book.

I enjoyed the inclusion of the online gaming community. Hades' brother is a big online gamer so I am familiar with that world.

Also, there is a line in the book when Arion says something along the lines of "Pretty sure they were not FBI agents." I laughed ridiculously hard. This line struck me as hilarious. Pure Arion smart mouth in all its' glory.

What I DISLIKED about this book.


I wanted Angel to be more honest with her mother. She is protect her mother, I understand. The daughter in me get it. The mother in me wants to protect my child. Mama Grizzly wins. I would have wiped that jerk out of existence. 



Full Review


The book opens and we are already knee deep in the story. <----Love this. Kelly does a great job filling in the back story as we go. I do not feel like I missed any part of the story. Angel is very brave. She removed herself form a horrid situation. That takes courage. Arion has questions he wants answers to, Angel has the answers. As much as he wants to demand she talk to him immediately, he handles her with care. Arion is intuitive. He can tell something is wrong. Arion was a gentle giant through the whole book. Angel had some work to do. She had to find the woman she was, the woman she lost. Arion was instrumental in her road to recovery, but ultimately Angel had to heal herself.
