Zeke and Kendall meet in the most unusual of circumstances. Kendall's coworker has just flipped out and tried to murder his cohost while on air. Kendall jumped into the fray to try to save the woman. Zeke, a paramedic, was a first responder to the scene, and treats Kendall for shock. She tells Zeke about the change in her coworker, which is when Zeke realizes there is a big problem.
Kendall is an investigative reporter, and as such, isn't inclined to give up her search for the truth. Zeke, in his Guardian Angel persona, rescues her and tries to persuade her to let things go.
Zeke was awesome, caring, loving,with a few self esteem issues inherent to the fact that his race is targeted by the Almighty for destruction. I can see where that would give a guy a complex.
Kendall was smart, spunky and courageous. When her loyalty is challenged by her attraction to both Zeke and the Guardian Angel, her confusion was genuine and funny. I liked her a lot.
The story was interesting and the plot was intriguing. As I mentioned, the mythology is different and fresh. Loved Ms Gail's style, the story is witty, sweet and hot, by turns. Given the fact it was a novella, I thought the story was fleshed out very well.
Bottom line - Time well spent.
What do you mean, a review needs more words? Zeke, the hero of "Nobody's Angel" (and I love that title!), is one of the best heroes I've read in ages. He is hot, he's strong, he has history, he's committed to helping people, he has a sense of humour.
Then along comes Kendall to upset his world with her sass and stubborn and smarts. She is a fab journalist heroine.
Stacy Gail has constructed a paranormal world that is believable, a bit scary and totally enjoyable.
Evil is among us, and investigative reporter Kendall Glynn has just enough para in her normal to realize things are not as they should be. When she witnesses firsthand her coworker and friend attempt to kill his co-anchor and then end his own life while on air, Kendall notices a strange veil of color in his eyes. Then when EMT Zeke Reece questions her about the apparently freaky eyes, Kendall starts to put her investigative skills to good use, trying to uncover what is happening.
Zeke seemingly knows more than he's letting on, yet he attempts to discredit Kendall and turn her away from the story. He was aloof and tried to make Kendall feel stupid for believing she saw something out of the ordinary. This bothered me - knowing that Zeke and Kendall would eventually become a couple. However, I enjoyed that Kendall recognized Zeke's attempts to discredit her, and instead of letting it bring her down, she fought harder for the truth.
The reader (and eventually Kendall) discovers that Zeke is a human descendant of the Nephilim (children of angels and human women). Due to the particular Nephilim from which Zeke originated, he has extraordinary abilities, which he uses to protect humans under the guise of the Guardian Angel - a superhero-like, mysterious man. One of the things I enjoyed about the world-building in Nobody's Angel is how Kendall learns about the Guardian Angel (Zeke) via reading newspaper clippings on the web. It fits the feel of the story since Kendall is a reporter, while affectively giving the reader a tremendous amount of background without it being "told" the information.
Kendall meets the Guardian Angel and feels an inexplicable attraction, although he keeps his identity well masked. Then as Zeke and Kendall begin spending more time together, their mutual attraction gets the better of the pair. They share a sexy kiss in a coffee shop, and it was easy to get wrapped up in the emotions surrounding a really good first kiss. I also liked how Kendall pulled away, questioning her feelings towards the Guardian Angel while kissing Zeke.
Kendall is a smart woman and eventually pieces everything together (including Zeke's identity). I felt that Zeke and Kendall worked well together, when he wasn't trying to sabotage himself. I continued to be frustrated throughout the story at Zeke's treatment of Kendall's theories, claiming he knows more that she. I felt he belittled her one too many times.
Nobody's Angel is an excellent introduction to Ms. Gail's Earth Angels series. The novella-length story provides a good foundation for the series, which continues with the second book, Savage Angel (February 2013). Although sometimes the characters felt a tad over-the-top and slightly dramatic, I was impressed with the mythology, and the smexy times were hot. I look forward to more mischief from this new world created by Ms. Gail.
