Review ~ No One's Angel (Chadwell Hearts, #1) by Kelly Walker

No One's Angel (Chadwell Hearts, #1)ebook downloaded via Amazon for free

Release Date: November 13th 2013

Chadwell Hearts books can be read as standalones. Each book follows a different couple. 

Tess used to spend more hours than she'd care to admit playing her favorite computer game, using the nickname Angel. She could pretend her life was different, and she could pretend Arion was just a friend. But a girl needs more to keep her warm at night than pixels, and she traded her virtual heaven for a real-life hell. Now she's on the run from a past she won't talk about, and the only place she has to go is the doorstep of the friend she's never actually met.

When Angel disappeared from their nightly games, it nearly destroyed Arion. He threw himself into work and women, but he can't help knowing the one-night stands will never compare to the angel who haunts his dreams. At first, when she shows up soaking wet and scared-shitless on his doorstep, he thinks his prayers have been answered.

But the more Arion tries to keep Angel close, the more her fear drives her away. If they are ever going to have a chance for a future, they'll first have to deal with the past that hasn't forgotten her any more than she's forgotten it--and Arion will have to learn how to let her go.

My Opinion

I've had this book for awhile--I downloaded after finding it free on Amazon. However, very rarely do I read those books unless they're novellas. Anyway, somehow it got into my reading list and I decided to take a chance on it as I felt like reading something I wasn't obligated to review. And I'm glad I did.

Whilst things start off a little unbelievably in this book, I'm glad I stuck with it. I thought things happened a little quickly in the first few chapter and emotions were thrown around without making much sense. I didn't really buy into the sudden romantic feelings yet things do progress better as the book goes on.

I liked the characters in the book. Arion/Axel had a good heart and I liked his loyalty. Despite the romance coming a little too soon to begin with, it was clear to see he cared for Angel/Tess. You can't help but fall in love with him to as he fights for her and to protect her. As well as that his past makes his emotions more raw and heartfelt.

Similarly, I liked Angel. She's an easy character to sympathise with and of course she's been through some terrible things. In a way the gaming relationship meant she could open up to Arion quicker. It meant things moved along quickly and the answers I desired weren't kept from me for too long.

Overall, despite the beginning this was a good read. I read it in one sitting and will definitely be reading more.
