I received an ARC of Angel After Dark in exchange for my honest review. This was released on January 16, 2014.
Dr. Angeline Hemming is a beautiful, sassy, no-nonsense type of girl who has risen from a difficult past to become one of Chicago’s most successful and respected criminal profilers. In exchange for free commercials to promote her favorite charitable causes, Angel answers calls and gives relationship advice on a Friday night radio program.
Alexander Avery is a gorgeous and successful corporate genius who doesn’t believe in love. When his girlfriend-of-convenience calls into Angel’s program, he is furious with the show’s host who doles out (what he considers) blind advice, without knowing all the facts… and he decides to give her a piece of his mind, and his side of the story!
When Angel informs Alex he’s the one in need of a much-deserved lesson, all hell breaks loose as these two type-A personalities battle it out for control over minds and hearts, and yes, in bed. Not only are they fighting each other at every turn, but they are also struggling to uphold the convictions they each live by.
It’s unclear who is stronger, but both must discover that to get what they desperately want, they may have to give a little… or a lot.
I was very excited about this book and was ecstatic to be able to get an ARC. The synopsis grabbed me right away but then the cover was revealed and wow…Colby Lefebvre. He is a perfect visual for Alex Avery.
Dr. Angeline Hemming aka Angel is a great, strong, smart and sexy female. She’s quite sure that, although Alex’s voice is sexy as hell, he’s not the sort of man she’d ever be interested in. Then she meets him! Not only is he extremely good looking but the two of them have great back and forth banter. She tries to fight her growing feelings for him but….the man is just too hot to be denied.
Alex Avery is not a happy man when he finds out his “girlfriend” called in to Angel’s late night radio show. And he’s less thrilled about the advice she was given. He decides to call the show to give his side of things and is completely taken with the voice he hears. Then he finds out what she looks like!
They both find themselves feeling things they don’t want to be feeling. Although Alex seems to be allowing things to flow between them, Angel is fighting them as hard as she can. May I add that she’s losing the battle.
Of course, things are never easy… so throw in some danger. Someone is threatening both Angel and Alex. They both want to protect the other. I wonder what lengths they will go to.
I wish I could say that this book has a great ending but I can’t [ENDING being the operative word here]. This one is a bit of a cliffhanger. Not one that will leave you tearing your hair out or anything like that. It’s just that there are unresolved issues that need to be addressed. That said, Kahlen Aymes split it up in a good spot. Don’t fear, there are more books to come in Angel and Alex’s story. My mama taught me that patience is a virtue. So I will patiently wait for book two. I know. I know. I don’t really have a choice.
