4 1/2 Fun time Stars!! I didn't just love this book; I'm in love with it!!
Admittedly when I started to read this I thought this was not going to work for me. Boy was I ever wrong!!! Even with the over-the-top unrealistic circumstances that surrounded the characters, this book STOLE MY HEART!! Daisy, oh my goodness, talk about wearing your heart on your sleeve, she did everything… everything out of love!! She was one of the sweetest, kindest, most determined heroines I've ever had the good fortune to come across! I adored her, and just thinking about her now just warms my heart.
Thrown into circumstances she's totally unprepared for, Daisy makes the best of the situation. She finds herself married to the cold-hearted, yet devastatingly handsome Alexander Markov. He throws every obstacle he can at her, but she is determined, keeps her chin up and pushes through. I was fascinated by her, she was delightful! I did not like Alex at first, but as Daisy works her magic and he starts to come around, she falls for him and so did I. Alex was carrying around some heavy baggage and he built a fortress around himself and his heart, but Daisy is so damn irresistible that his walls begin to crumble ever so slowly. He puts up a great front, but the reader can feel how much he cares for this woman who shares his bed and his life. The deal for the marriage calls for 6 months, but how can he ever let her go?! Her father and step-mother, I don’t even want to talk about them, they’re not worth the effort…BLECH!
Hear that crack, it’s my heart breaking in half and, it wasn’t the only thing cracking and well…you’ll just have to read it and see for yourself!! OMG…even now it all just takes my breath away, my heart pounds and I’m anxious all over again. It was a defining moment in the book and I can’t say any more than that!
The ending took me totally off guard. I never expected it to play out the way it did. It was such a pleasant surprise, my jaw just dropped to the floor and it took a while for me to lift it up and put it back in place. I read the last 12% of this book over and over…I had a hard time putting this one away.
So many amazing characters that took front and center, but the two that stole the show were Sinjun and Tater! Their special relationship with Daisy, well it was just that…SPECIAL! However unrealistic it was, it worked in a big way.
What fun, SEP outdid herself with this one. This book stirred every emotion in me…it was head-spinning! The dialogue was amazing; I was captivated by the story and charmed by all the characters, especially Daisy and Alex. The passion they shared felt real and they had amazing chemistry. SEP does intimate very well. The book was not lacking for heat, that’s for sure.
Kiss An Angel is a new comfort book on my shelf; I can pull this out anytime and know that it will leave me feeling good, and that’s saying something!!! I can’t recommend this book enough!
