As the owner of a string of successful nightclubs all over the world, Zerach can have any woman–except for his assistant Isadora O’Donnell. First off, Isadora isn’t a one-night-stand kind of girl, and second, her dominating godparents don’t approve of him. There’s also the fact that he is an archangel with a mission to protect humans from demons, something Isadora can never find out about.
Isadora secretly longs for Zerach’s attention but her scarred body and his playboy ways keep her from acting on her feelings. With her only family on the brink of bankruptcy, shes determined to help them, even if it means trying to forget Zerach and marrying the womanizing Jake, a man she’ll never love.
Zerach tries to keep Isadora at arm’s length, but when a demon starts stalking her, Zerach will stop at nothing to protect the woman he loves. But protecting her could cost him his wings.
I don’t know if it’s a throwback to being raised Catholic, but I just can’t seem to get enough of angel-themed books. TRUSTING AN ANGEL did absolutely nothing to disavow me of that love. Before you get to the unearthly beauty/sexiness, there’s just something to be said for beings of power and knowledge without having to reconcile dark sides. And, hello, wings. I can’t get over the utter coolness of a guy with wings.
Maybe there’s a twelve-step program for me.
Angel-love aside, TRUSTING AN ANGEL was a quick read, but a fun one. Isadora was a complete delight – a virgin for reasons that are plot related rather than moral – she wasn’t mousy or full of giggles and blushes and swatting hands. There might have been an element or two about her lack of experience that pushed the borders of belief, but nothing to really detract from the story. I loved her strength apart from that inexperience, her love for her godparents, and her backbone when she needed it.
There wasn’t much I didn’t like about Zerach, or his brothers. That’s a lie – there wasn’t anything I didn’t like about them. They were serious when it was warranted, but clearly close as any family all other times, at turns teasing and tough. My other favorite character was Asta and I loved her enough to hope that she gets her own story at some point.
TRUSTING AN ANGEL was a fast read, as I said. I finished it in a night, but that didn’t detract at all from the beauty of the story. It was a tight plot, just enough menace to give it a healthy bit of action and conflict, some open doors to maybe allow for another trip into this universe, and some pretty hot sex to boot. So if you’ve been missing hot angels in your life, TRUSTING AN ANGEL might be just the ticket.
