No One’s Angel by Kelly Walker
Publication date: September 17th 2013
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance
Tess used to spend more hours than she’d care to admit playing her favorite computer game, using the nickname Angel. She could pretend her life was different, and she could pretend Arion was just a friend. But a girl needs more to keep her warm at night than pixels and she traded her virtual heaven for a real life hell. Now she’s on the run from a past she won’t talk about, and the only place she has to go is the doorstep of the friend she’s never actually met.
When Angel disappeared from their nightly games, it nearly destroyed Arion. He threw himself into work and women, but he can’t help knowing the one night stands will never compare to the angel who haunts his dreams. At first, when she shows up soaking wet and scared-shitless on his doorstep, he thinks his prayers have been answered.
But the more Arion tries to keep Angel close, the more her fear drives her away. If they are ever going to have a chance for a future, they’ll first have to deal with the past that hasn’t forgotten her any more than she’s forgotten it, and Arion will have to learn how to let her go.
No One’s Angel is a New Adult(NA) Contemporary Romance and is recommended for mature audiences only due to language and sexual content.
I really enjoyed No One’s Angel. I loved how the book jumps right into the story. I loved Arion he was so open, caring and patient with Angel. She is so broken and scared when she shows up at Arion’s place but he takes things slow with her and lets her take the lead in everything they do together, slowly giving her back the power that she has lost. There were a few times that Arion did get on my nerves. When Angel decided it was time to deal with her past by herself, he became so needy and a little whiny. The first time it was cute and sad but then by the third time it was just annoying. He needed to man up and get over it. Besides the building romance between Angel and Arion, there was mystery and action to the story that was tied to Angels past. . No One’s Angel was a fast paced book that never had a boring moment that I think everyone will enjoy.
Overall I enjoyed immensely. Axel/Arion wants nothing more than to fix the broken girl he fell in love with over a computer game. While Tess/Angel doesn’t want someone else to fix her, she wants to do it herself.
I would definitely recommend this novel!
