Her Fantasies Were Wild But Buried Deep...

Haley Tillman words hard at being a good girl, hiding her rich fantasy life in the pages of her diary. But being good doesnt' seem to get her anywhere with men, and her confidence is on a downward spiral. She's ready to try something altogether different, but hasn't a clue where to start. In a moment of desperation, she prays for a miracle...

He Might Take Her Beyond Them...

Ryder is the perfect combination of powerful angel plus normal hot–blooded man. Crossing into the mortal world could cost him his existence. But mortals are like a potent drug to Ryder, and Hayley is quickly becoming his drug of choice...

This angel is willing to fall if it means helping her open up to the possibilities of life.

I was excited to get the next book in the Good Girl Series. I enjoyed Where There's Smoke and wanted to see where Ms. Kelley would take the series next. The characters are interesting and the plot is a fresh twist on angels. Ms. Kelley's writing flows well and drew me in from page one. This was a one-sitting read for me, which is a good thing. I couldn't put the book down. I had to know what would happen next.

Hailey writes her fantasies because she's scared to share them out loud. She's been repressed by her upbringing. I could relate to her because I didn't have the most vocal parents when it came to sex and what was acceptable. I could understand where she felt shy and hemmed in. The one thing I had issue with is, while having a rough upbringing and feels she's not pretty, she doesn't really have any other characteristics that made her less than perfect. I got that she was inexperienced, but she seemed almost too good to be true. I wanted to connect with her more, but I couldn't. Other readers might not have an issue with that, I did.

Ryder is everything I wanted in an angel. Talk about hot! Good grief, just the descriptions of him required a glass of ice water. Whew! He's a bit too good to be true as well, but I expected that because he's an angel. He's sex on legs and it's great to see him get Hailey to open up.

If you want a hot read with an angel, then this might be the book for you.
