Genre: Paranormal Romance
Back in high school, Siobhan Elliot’s life was simple: Cheerleading, friends, and parties. But that all changed the night she and her friends investigated a mysterious light in the woods. There they found an injured man–an irresistible man with hypnotic blue eyes and magnificent black wings. A man Siobhan recognized. He was the handsome dark angel from her dreams. And with one touch of his hand, he left her with a special gift: a set of mythical wings that would change her life forever. Then he disappeared without a trace. Siobhan thought she would never see him again.
Now, six years later, her dark angel reappears –this time as a teaching assistant at her college. He calls himself Jasper. He challenges everything Siobhan thought she knew about herself and her world. And he’s come back for only one thing: her.
Or so he says. Siobhan is about to find out that nothing is what it seems in this strange, new world.
(Blurb from Goodreads.)
I love it when a book is surprisingly awesome. The main character, Siobhan, is pretty kick ass. As you read in the synopsis, a visitor to earth left her with a pair of wings. Wings! And despite the obvious challenges that must have presented, she moves forward with life and just takes it in stride. Siobhan is part of a sorority in her college, and that was pretty cool to see, especially since I was never in one (I don’t think I even know anyone who was.) So it was a neat insight into sorority living, plus I felt that made the book unique as well.
Jasper, the dark angel that gifted her with wings, annoyed me a little bit, but I think that was the author’s intention. And I wish the front page showed how to pronounce Siobhan’s name. (It is in the book, but not right at the beginning.) You know when you read to yourself in your head; I think I just mumbled through her name every time.
I’ve never read anything similar to this story, and that’s a good thing. It gets tiring when you read stories that feel the same, over and over and over again. Greek gods, myths, college living, romance; it’s all there. So my hats off to you Ms. Stacy; you made a fan out of me and I can’t wait to read the next one.
My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
