If you are looking for an intense, passionate love so wrong it is right, a story about losing your way but clawing desperately at any chance to find your way back, about hanging on to your last shred of sanity and trusting someone enough to let go of your fears, look no further. No One's Angel's angel is a New Adult (NA) Contemporary Romance about a girl learning to fight back and a boy learning to let go.
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.
Amazing book!!! Who would have thought I'd like a book that even mentioned gaming.... I'm not into that stuff. :D great great great book. If you love romances where the guy is so supporting but also so.... Real. Then you'll love this book. It is a must read.
I loved this from the first page and couldn't put it down. It moved at a fast pace without having any lulls and kept me hooked. I loved the characters and the concept of the story. Great book!
The girl had some issues and yes she was no Angel. It was ok
The story is told in both Arion and Angel's POV. Periodically Angel will reminisce into her past relationship with Nick. Angel and Arion are computer gamers in the game WarQuest. Angel stopped playing when she met Nick.
The story is confusing in the beginning because you are left with the impression these two people know each other. Which they do that is in the computer world. Angel decided to leave her town and meet Arion in person. Not until you read further do you get a better understanding of what they mean to each other. Apparently they have been gaming together for two years. They also have been texting each other but never met each other in person.
The flirting and the sexual innuendos is dragging on too long. I'm ready for some action. I'm ready for Angel to let her guard down and for Arion to step across the line.
There are too many obstacles and then distractions that keep them from being together and it's getting annoying.
The teasing and build up of arousal has gone on long enough. It's wearing on my patience.
Finally they are together but Angel gets scared and wants space to think. Then Nick comes back inti the picture and threatens her life. A little adventure and some excitement occurs. But fir me its too late. I'm beyond impatient and cannot wait for the story to end. It dragged on for too long. First with Angel trying to decide what she meant to Arion. Then when she kept pushing him away. Finally when she ran away. Too many dramatic issues with Angel.
The story was too long with the drawn out drama and the rush of Nick finding her.
The premise for how they met was odd. I'm not a gamer, but I find it unrealistic to fall in love by gaming with someone whom you have never met.
