OMG this book!!! Ok so rarely do I get the privilege of reading a book and just after i finish, seeing the author live in person. Fortunately, this happened with this book. Needless to say, I had words to say to Elle about these two, the series, and the stories.
Needless to say when she asked what I thought (and what you are waiting to hear) I was frustrated on how to express myself. This book, and the series for that matter, built me up, ripped me apart, made me want to scream, cry, yell, and love all over again ...... every time.
Personally, from the beginning, I have been a Fate Fan!! She is snarky, full of sass, and I LOVE her!! The comments dripping of sarcasm that she has are awesome (and totally remind me of myself). At the same time, we have seen her flaws, her pain, and watched her hurt every time something happened. Needless to say, when I knew we were getting her story, I knew it would be something amazing.
Seraphina (Fate as she was known) is an angel that has been hurt badly by the one person she thought she could count on and would spend all of time with. However, he was the one person that hurt her the most. Sera has become the snarky, hurt, scared Fate and she isn't sure she knows how to be anyone else.
Gabriel is the one person that has been waiting for plans to come to fruition so that he can have his mate ..... that one being that was meant just for him. That one person that he has been waiting all this time for, and the one person that he can't fault for needing and finding comfort even when he didn't.
These two amazing people are trying to see if they can find their way back to each other after all this time has passed. They have to fight all the demons that they have and are partially responsible for creating. The question becomes will they get the chance to move past their mistakes and find a new life together or with Peter end any chances they have? Will they be able to open up and be true to themselves and each other? Will Fate finally be free??
The rustle of fabric is the only indication that I’m not alone, but I remain in my seat. Today, it’s a purple velvet swivel chair. I stare out the window of my office, watching the white, fluffy clouds roll through the sky, seeming to go right around the sun, never disrupting its rays.
The voice has my thoughts screeching back to reality, sending a shiver of want down my spine, and making my heart ache. I slowly turn my seat to face him. “A millennium and still, you’re the only stubborn ass who calls me by my full name,” I drawl casually, doing a damn fine job of hiding my reaction to him.
He raises a single eyebrow, as though I should know better. The jackass.
“Gabriel,” I emphasize his name with a high level of sarcasm. Of all people, the Arch Angel named Gabriel should understand my irritation at being namedSeraphina. I mean, dude, could we be more of a walking cliché?
I cock my head to the side, showing only mild curiosity. “I have to say, I never expected they would send you.”
He looks just the same: tall, muscular, black inky hair, cut short-ish, but perfectly unruly from his lazy curls. Amethyst eyes, a square face, chiseled jaw, Roman nose, and pouty lips (Guys can have pouty lips, too. Even GQ angel bastards), make up one fucking delicious package. And, oh, what a damn fine package it is. You ought to know, slutmuffin Mmmhmmm . . . yes, I do.
Heat infuses me and I’m really pissed at the hormone-ridden teenager lusting after him like he’s the lead singer of that popular boy band, One Track. One Direction, idiot. Whatever, fucklet, go back to your books and virgin thoughts. Go. Scat.
Well fuck, now I’m left with a bitch in heat. I stifle a groan.
“Perhaps they didn’t think you would return with anyone but me, without putting up a fuss,” his smooth, melted caramel voice is so familiar and I want to tell him to keep talking forever, but then I remember, and the stabbing pain of betrayal accompanies rising anger.
“Putting up a fuss?” I snip. “Do you see a fucking toddler in front of you?” My eyes narrow, willing laser beams to shoot out and burn multiple holes into his ridiculously gorgeous body.
“If you’re going to act like a child, Seraphina, I’ll treat you like one,” he says calmly as he moves to stand right in front of the desk, his stance deceptively casual. Yeah, right. I snort, but manage not to stomp my foot and hiss in irritation.
Instead, I sigh. “Gabriel, I haven’t seen or heard from you in over seven hundred years. Seriously, why the fuck did they send you?”
He prowls around my desk, gripping the armrests of my chair and turning me to face him. Leaning down, he has me caged in, his face inches from mine. “I volunteered.”
His proximity is throwing me off, suddenly bombarded by every horny personality inside my head. “Um—why?” I clear my throat and try to sound unaffected, “Why would you do that? Maybe—.” I gasp a little when he moves closer, only centimeters from my mouth. “Maybe I don’t want to see you.” I nod sharply, pleased I was able to say that without bursting into flames and finding myself standing next to the devil. Have I ever told such a massive and blatant lie? Only Gabriel has ever been able to push my buttons so thoroughly. Get it together, woman!
His eyes narrow, his brows dropping low, but there is no disguising the heat in them. “Liar. You’re body fucking craves me every bit as much as mine does yours.”
Before I can deny it, his lips are on mine and my traitorous body fucking melts.
I don’t love him. I don’t love him. I don’t love him.
I chant the words in my head over and over, hoping if I say it enough, I’ll believe it. I’ve spent centuries building up the wall around my heart and I refuse to let it get broken a second time by the man who destroyed it in the first place.
I’m a lover of all things books, a hopeless romantic, and have always had a passion for writing. Between being a sappy romantic, my love of an HEA, my crazy imagination, and ok, let’s be real, my dirty mind, I fell easily into writing romance.
I’m a huge baseball fan and yet, a complete girly, girl. I’m an obsessive reader and have a slight (hahaha! Slight? Yeah, right) addiction to signed books.
I’m married to my very own book boyfriend, an alpha male with a sexy, sweet side. He is the best inspiration, my biggest supporter, and the love of my life. He is also incredibly patient and understanding about the fact that he has to fight the voices in my head for my attention.
I hope you enjoy reading my books as much as I enjoyed writing them!
