REVIEW

Can’t seem to wipe off this stupid smile on my face. 

I loved this one, maybe loved it more than I could care to admit. It was one of those moments when I just wanted to read some light books, you know just to take your mind off of the seriousness of whatever has been going on with your life, so I chanced upon this book, tried the first few pages and before I knew it I was completely hooked. To say it was addictive will be an understatement. I first read the premise of this book, about an angel who was stuck in Hell to guard devil, and he can only get out of it if his master calls upon him and give him another mission. True enough, he was called, but not by his master but by the beautiful woman he has been watching through time. Such a great premise isn’t it? The romance is already palpable, I knew then I would have to read it or I will be left wondering for a long time. Glad I did! The story did not disappoint, I do understand that it is under the erotica genre, well as I have mentioned before I am no stranger to erotica fiction, but this one was more on the mild side of things. It was steamy yes, it has few unnecessary sexual tensions (hint: the one in the club) but in the grand scheme of things everything was well played out.

I just hoped there was so much to the story, like depth and more seriousness. It has a great potential to turn into a full novel. The premise was really great, a Dark Angel and a Witch, hell yes I am sold! If the author ever thinks of writing this one into a full novel, with more complexities I will definitely read it!

Apollyon is just.ughhhh..! I loved how he has been described. Through the years it has exhausted me to read characters to be described as “hot” “devastatingly handsome” gorgeous” and all the unrealistic ones, but this book was an exception. Haha. Any books with angels will always be an exception to me, because come on, how could you describe an angel without throwing in those words? Impossible. Haha not that I’ve seen any angels, but they ought to look the part. So excuse me for being shallow haha!

All things considered, I enjoyed this one a lot!!! I can definitely see myself binge reading all the books in the series. Now excuse me while I swoon over angels. haha

“Apollyon stared at her. Was he making a terrible mistake by helping her? A part of him said to leave now before it was too late and he became too deeply involved with her. He couldn’t though. She had cast a spell on him. And he was a slave to her.”
