There was a good premise to the story and I liked the idea of what this book could have been, but the author missed opportunities to delve into the world of the Angels. Instead she barely scratched surface of the paranormal aspects and focused more on the "romance"...if that's what you want to call it. The level of romance in this book is lukewarm at best, so it's safe for younger teen readers.
The Angel, Sterling, is very immature. Especially for someone who is supposed to be over 700 years old. Not to mention that he's been helping and mentoring humans for 700 years, so I don't understand how he can be so childish and jealous. That doesn't make sense to me. The female lead, Claire, was full of teenage angst as one would expect of a 17 year old. Throw in a few crazy and obsessed exes on both sides and we have tons of drama. Good drama? Not necessarily.
I usually don't like to nitpick a book to death, but there were so many grammatical errors that I had to mention it. So if you're a stickler for that, this book will bother you.
On the plus side, I did enjoy some of the conversations that Claire and Sterling had. I found myself chuckling at their banter. I also thought that the secondary characters Ariana and Argento were really good. They both really added to the story and made Sterling a little more acceptable. He is almost like their younger brother. I also can appreciate the fact that Claire's parents and family were around. The family and their thoughts on Claire's relationships were very realistic and I always can appreciate a story that can balance a little realism with fantasy.
Overall I thought that this story had great potential. I only wished that the writing was more mature and Sterling and Claire's characters were more flushed out. Also, as I mentioned earlier, I would have loved to experience more of the world of Angels. That would have added an amazing edge to the story. An editor would have been a great addition as well. However, if you're looking for a fun, light and easy read without substantial conflict or too much going on, then this would be a good choice.
I've finally found it here, within the talentled author's prose, our own Ms. Melissa Smith. Her book, Silver Lining is a definite, feel good read.
This book has been spinning around my brain for over a year. I re-read it when I eat my lunch and I'm relaxing, but more importantly, I read Silver Lining when I want a story to make me feel all is well in the world.
This heavenly story keeps me entertained, no matter how many times I read it, and I'm so grateful Melissa's book, Silver Lining, has the power to do this.
The plot is imaginative, the characters believable, and who wouldn't want a guardian angel in the guise of a puppy? I was hooked, as I am with all of Ms. Smith's books. She's a gifted story teller, a wordsmith extraordinaire, and actually does formatting for her peers, or so I've been told.
For fantasy readers, I think her book stands on its own merit. I highly recommand this lovely story and I hope you trust me enough to look into this one, people. I promise you won't be disappointed. :)
However, that's not really what happens. This doesn't turn into a wishing genie, it becomes a romance. That romance leads to trouble, for the both of them. When I reached the end and saw there was another book in the series I about leaped for joy. I can't wait to read Book II when it comes out.:)
If you are into opposing viewpoints and men/women doing the polar opposites then coming together, this book might not be for you. If you are looking for a soothing romance, then it probably is. Foul language is rare in this book, and it's a pleasant read that will give you funny tingles.
I bought it on smash but bought it here too. Couldn't help myself, want it for both my readers. Never know what happens in the future. Hopefully a paperback comes out one day.
Wonderful romance for young people. The teenage angst, the friends, the family, all are embroiled in the tale.
