Unbelievable, Book 2
Tori Chambers. Old biddy, gossip, busybody and meddler. Except in reality she’s none of those things—she’s a guardian angel who specializes in helping people find their soul mates. Her latest assignment has had her tearing her hair out for over a year. She’s holding up her end for the fireman who’s her current client, but his soul mate’s guardian angel is dropping the ball big time. And when a replacement steps in, it’s enough to curl what’s left of Tori’s hair.
Jericho. The one man who broke her heart—and made her determined to never fail her clients like her own guardian angel failed her.
A hundred years ago, while fighting for Texas independence, Jericho made a mistake that accidentally cost her life. Now that she’s forced to make nice and work with him, he’s determined not to lose her again. Even if he has to tie her to the bed and make love to her until she’s willing to see reason.
Because unknown to Tori, she is his assignment. And if he can’t find a way to convince her they’re soul mates, they face an eternity of consequences…
In the mood for an erotic romance that is short, sweet, and oh-so hot? Then you don’t want to miss Believe in Me, a thoroughly enjoyable novella with just the right blend of naughty and nice.
Once upon a time, Victoria and Jericho were soul mates. But when their guardians fell short of procuring their happily ever after, they ended up dead as a consequence, and as a result took the places of those who are fated to bring soul mates together. Now, a hundred years later, Victoria and Jericho have to work together if they want to make sure another couple doesn’t meet the same fate. Their reunion is both happy and sad, and as memories resurface and Victoria attempts to forget the past, Jericho will have to convince her to give their love a second chance.
Talk about a story that tingles in all the right places. Author Crystal Jordan was created something unique and intriguing, using guardian angels in an unexpected and delightful twist. Although I haven’t read the first story in this series, I fully intend to. The characters are wonderful, and even with the short length of the work, provide just enough insight and emotion to satisfy the craving for romance.
While I was slightly disappointed when I learned about the transgressions that ended in tragedy and separated the protagonists (it seemed rather odd that Jericho never attempted to locate Victoria, all things considered), I realized with the length of the work an in-depth perusal of the situation just wasn’t plausible. This isn’t a story about the past, but rather, the future, and it comes at you hard and fast. The chemistry between Victoria and Jericho is so scorching it will burn your finger tips, and the emotional scenes balance out the romantic aspects nicely.
I recommend Believe In Me for anyone who wants something to enjoy when time is short and you need instant impact. The characters are wonderful, the sex is sizzling, and the ending will leave you with a smile on your face.
