Welcome to the Unguarded Book Tour!
Hosted by none other than BB Book Tours (:
Today I am bringing you a Review of Unguarded
&& an awesome giveaway from Ashley Robertson herself!
Oh Yea – Let the Awesome Begin!
Guardian angel Selene was so close to becoming an archangel—the supreme of all beings—until she fell in love with Cole, a forbidden dark one. Once she discovers her vampire lover has been kidnapped and the only way to save him is by abandoning her number one priority—Caitlyn, her human charge—there really is only one answer in Selene’s mind, even though leaving Caitlyn unguarded will most likely cause Selene to fall from grace.
But her choice to save Cole doesn’t come without a price…and now Selene is racing against time to not only save her dark lover, but find a way to keep Caitlyn alive as well.
With the help of a new vampire ally, Luke, Selene will push her diminishing angel abilities to the point where her very existence lies in the balance. Now threatened with the chance of becoming a fallen angel or even dying, Selene can only pray she’ll have enough time—and good grace—to save the ones she loves.
Okay – first things first. I think we should all take a minute and enjoy the GORGEOUS that is the Unguarded Book Cover. Did ya get a good look?! I mean really, is it not awesome!? Now that the moment is over, lets get back down to business!
I was lucky enough to receive this book for a blog tour I signed up for. & now, after reading it, I must say that I made a pretty good decision to jump on this blog tour! Seriously, aside from the amazing cover, this book is like a paradise for lovers of fictional awesomeness. Demons, witches, vampires — OH MY!
While I haven’t read too many books involving angels, Selene just kind of.. spoke to me. Why? This certain angel has a slight problem. She’s pretty much in love with a vampire. (Dude. SOLD!) Selene has to be one of the toughest, most loyal heroines I have read about in awhile. Seriously, she defines Alpha Female. – I want to be just like her when I grow up! – I will point out that she does have a slight authority and rule following issue. Then again, who doesn’t!? I’m telling you, I completely relate to this chick!
Even though her love of Cole is forbidden and can be the very thing that stops her from becoming an archangel, when she finds out he has been captured, she’s face with one tough decision. As an angel, her sole job is to watch over her charge, and by leaving to go after Cole – she is leaving her charge open for any and all harm to come to her with no one their to help her. So does she go after him, or stay with Caitlyn – her charge?
This story flowed almost effortlessly for me. I honestly didn’t come across anything I thought odd, or weird or just non fitting. The only thing I will say I wish there was more of was the story of HOW Selene and Cole came together. With this book I found myself eager to get to the end to see what happened, what didn’t happened, and if I was right or wrong about things. Another thing I loved about this book is you could just TELL Ashley did her research before she wrote this book. All the questions that spawned in my mind while reading this, were answered at one point or another, which shows me she knew exactly what she was talking about! I love nothing more than a book that has some consistency in it!
