T.K. Lawyer takes the reader on a journey of paranormal romance involving a human woman with trust issues and an angel who cannot lie to benefit himself. Add to the mix a conniving friend, a human man who loves her, too, a Council that separates her and her angel, and her constant insecurities, and it’s a journey fraught with twists and turns. I enjoyed the ride, and look forward to reading more by this author.

I really liked this book. TK Lawyer did an amazing job on giving different spin to a story. I am lover of things in the paranormal world, so angels, well that was a given that I like. No I love. I absolutely love it.
This story will get you to fall in it, word by word. Every single sentence. It drags you in slowly but surely. Those are the kind of books that I really enjoy and so glad that I was able to read this book. Since this was the first book of this authors that I had ever read I did not know what to expect. I’m skeptic when it comes to new authors.
She didn’t disappoint! Not one bit.
Tatiana just wants to find the guy on there that is going to be a true counterpart. Someone who is loyal, loving and strong. And she doesn’t want to settle for someone who is not those things, plus some. Like her friends she doesn’t want to just settle for someone.
Jasper is not looking for someone. His mission is to rescue Tatiana from a situation that she is going to be in and save her life. He isn’t supposed to find this girl more interesting than saving her life. But he does.
Follow Tatiana and Jasper into the rabbit hole that they find themselves in. Finding one another even when they are not supposed to be together and fall in love with these characters, slowly but surely. Enjoy the budding relationship between the two of them and just completely fall in love with the story.
Angels. Humans. Everything.

This is the first book I have read by T.K. Lawyer. I loved the basis of this book, a guardian angel (Jasper) falling for his human charge (Tatiana).
Jasper is swoon worthy. He is sweet, loving, caring, gorgeous, and incredibly honest. Him saying that “I want to be with you, forever, my darling, beyond this life and on. Wherever you are, I want to be. I want to be by your side and to help you with anything you find important. Let me be your partner, your mate, and I will give you myself, body, and soul” would make any women swoon & feel admired completely ( and who doesn't want to feel that. :-) ). I melted into puddle when he said that. He was the perfect mate.
Tatiana is a real woman who has real women insecurities that has plagued her through her life. All she wants is to find someone who will love her completely & to spend her life with. Someone that wouldn't be turned off by her size. I do love that T.K. created the heroine with a plus size. It's very relatable to me. But her insecurities was so overwhelming and it frustrated me greatly! She would get spiteful & hurtful because her insecurities would overwhelm her. This is what made the book not flow well. I got exasperated through the whole book. There was times I would roll my eyes and want to shake Tatiana.
It was hard to get into the book at times, & wanted to quit. But I'm glad I stuck with it and finished. It had some some sweet & endearing moments, & it had some really passionate moments. Those moments were the parts that kept me going. But all in all the crippling insecurities Tatiana had made it just an ok book for me.

Jasper is the first book in The Guardian League by T.K Lawyer.
Tatiana Baker has had some bad experiences when it comes to relationships. She has a little trouble trusting and for someone so smart, she sure has a lot of self-worth and insecurity issues. Tatiana is gorgeous and curvy, or fluffy as she likes to put it, and seems to think this is a barrier to finding ‘the one’. She can’t see how beautiful she really is, inside and out.
Her ideal dream man has yet to cross her path and at this point she is beginning to wonder if he truly exists. She isn’t asking for much- just someone sexy and gorgeous, a soulmate, a best friend and life-long companion, someone she could share life and everything with, someone who loves being in her company and who wants to spend a lot of time with her….. Oh, and they must be good in bed. That’s not too much to ask for, right? But most men she’s encountered seemed to only be looking for a one-night-stand, and Tatiana wasn’t interested in just ‘hooking up’- she wanted more, anything less just seemed pointless.
On her drive to work one morning, Tatiana is involved in a car crash, that just from the severity of the damage done to her vehicle- she really shouldn’t have survived, but miraculously she found herself standing outside the wreak, with very minor injuries. She was saved by a stunningly handsome man and Tatiana is transfixed by him, his smile and dreamy eyes mesmerise her. But before she can find out more about him, he disappears. She only took her eyes off him for a moment and he was gone. Tatiana can’t stop thinking about him; he is on her mind constantly.
Jasper was only doing his duty; he wasn’t looking for a mate. So when he turns up at the scene of her accident, the last thing he expects is to be drawn to the beautiful woman he rescued. He has never felt such a powerful attraction or the overwhelming need to protect and defend someone, ever before. She is just so enticing, alluring and incredibly sexy. He leaves the scene and thinks that this will be the end of his infatuation- but his mind is drawn to thoughts of her and he knows he simply must get to know her better, to make her his, forever. Now all he has to do is find a way to ‘meet’ her again and convince her that they would be perfect together.
While attending a function one evening, she is surprised to find that her ‘hero’ is also there. She goes over to thank him for saving her. They start talking and really hit it off, both end up having a really wonderful time, ending the night with making plans to go out again soon.
But with him holding a huge secret and disappearing for periods of time- and her overwhelming insecurities, it is all but over before anything can begin. Can Tatiana let go of all her self-doubt and trust issues and give him a chance? What happens when she discovers who he really is and what he’s been hiding from her? Will she be able to accept him, or will the news just add to her anxieties? Will they find their soulmate and life-long companion in each other? One thing is for certain; that she will test his limits like no one else has ever done before…….
I was intrigued by the premise of this story- the blurb and the cover really had me itching to read the book. I thought that this would be a unique and original take on a romance between an Angel and a human.
While the story itself was great- the dialog between the main characters seemed overly formal and at times awkward or a little contrived. I had trouble really connecting to the characters or the story because of this. Also, the story had a great pace until the last quarter, where its progress slowed considerably- as Tatiana’s angst and commitment issues bogged down the flow of the story. Because of this, it took till the last chapter before the story started wrapping up- I was beginning to think that it would end up being continued in the next book- so that last chapter of the story seemed really rushed to me.
Overall the story is very sweet, but with a whole lot of angst. It is a slightly different take on an ‘Angel’ romance. I would read the next book, to see if some of the issues I had with this book are resolved in that one- and to discover what the author does with the storylines for the rest of this series.
Thank you T.K Lawyer!
