So what’s Bound Angel about?
You don’t need to have read any of the previous books in the Her Angel: Bound Warriors series to enjoy Bound Angel as Ms Heaton weaves any relevant information about the world and past adventures that the reader needs into this story. I can also confirm that the romance aspect of this tale is concluded to my satisfaction by the end of the book in Ms Heaton’s signature Happy Ever After style.
So, what did I like about it?
I’m a big fan of Ms Heaton’s writing style (I’m sure I’ve mentioned this like a hundred times. Lol!); it’s the way she creates a believable paranormal world and then packs it full of multifaceted characters – even the supernatural ones have very real human foibles – then weaves their stories around an engaging background plot that just draws me in and keeps me hooked.
I loved our romantic couple. Isadora is my kind of heroine, she’s got gumption; she manages to maintain her hope throughout her trials and tribulations and doesn’t sit back and wait for someone else to rescue her. I loved Rook’s inner conflict; his forgotten life causing him to be confused about what he feels and waiving his previous stone-cast drive and dogged determination to be the leader of the Devil first battalion. I really liked that both our main characters are determined and tenacious but also show loving, playful and teasing sides too.
I would to mention at this point that the fight scenes in this book are outstanding and I love that our heroine, Isadora, can hold her own; not leaving it to the males to fight on her behalf.
Which leads me on to another reason why I love Ms Heaton’s books so much – the sex; she makes the most explicit sexual scenes very romantic (I think it takes a very talented writer to accomplish this), the erotic interludes in this story are beautifully balanced with poignant internal dialogue from our main romantic pair; it’s the tender insights into Rook and Isadora’s inner fears, their doubts and their emotional vulnerability that captivated my old romantic heart.
This story was a page turner for me and I really enjoyed reading it. I loved the build-up of sexual anticipation and I got caught up with Rook and Isadora’s romantic shenanigans (who wouldn’t *blush*) but I also loved the edge-of-your-seat fight scenes that got my adrenaline pumping. I shed a tear or two during the tender moments and I found myself chuckling out loud at the dry humour and banter. Bound Angel had me gripped from the first page to the last and I couldn’t stop reading!
So, ummm, was there anything I disliked about it?
Well, I obviously enjoyed the book as I rated it 5 stars, but I feel that I should mention a couple of things.
This is the final book in a four book series, and as such, there is mention of past adventures that gently link all four books and involves some old angel comrades of our hero, Rook – Apollyon from book 1 Dark Angel, Lukas from book 2 Fallen Angel and Einar from book 3 Warrior Angel. However, for those of you like me who HATE huge cliff-hangers, rest assured, Ms Heaton doesn’t leave us hanging in any of the books in this series meaning that the immediate threat and mystery in this book is solved and the romance between Rook and Isadora is happily concluded in Ms Heaton’s signature style before the last page.
So, basically what I’m saying is…
I really loved this book. It had everything that I look for in a great paranormal romance; it made me smile, cry and feel all warm & fuzzy inside, my heart was pumping during the fight scenes, there were great well written erotic thrills and tons of romantic gestures that satisfied my soppy side.
As with all of Ms Heaton’s books, due to the graphic violence and sexual content – it’s definitely got both – I would recommend this book to adults who are not offended by content of this nature and enjoy reading stories about conspiracies, the drive to hunt out the truth and protection of those we love but Bound Angel is definitely a must read for those of you, like me, who adore tales about soul saving love with oodles of fire and passion.
