I received a copy of this audiobook from the
author in exchange for my honest review. The gifting
of this book in no way influenced my review and all
opinions are entirely my own.
This was definitely an unusual take on angels. I was hooked from the beginning, though I was a bit disappointed in the beginning. As soon as Roxie finds out that she’s an angel, Lincoln (her angel friend) makes it clear that they aren’t associated with God. That rubbed me the wrong way but, fortunately, was where my disappointment with this book ended.
I loved Roxie’s character. I felt for her in the beginning. She knows she has this great life and should feel connected to everyone. She feels emotions but they’re fleeting. Other than that, she feels this emptiness, like she is disconnected from everything. And I felt bad for her. But she’s not this wimpy little damsel in distress. When things get rough as the story progresses, she steps up. She does what she needs to do in order to make everything right.
I enjoyed the kind-of there, kind-of not there love triangle with Roxie, Tucker and Lincoln. There wasn’t much to it but you always wondered if there was more that Lincoln wasn’t telling Roxie. Very entertaining, to me 🙂
Spoiler-free. I wasn’t exactly sure how this book was going to end, especially seems it is the first in a series but everything wrapped up very well. It still eludes to the next book, but you’re not left hanging, something I really appreciate. I downloaded the second book about 30 pages from the end of this one and I’m eager to continue and see where things go with Roxie and her friends. The new development with her family and Bing was something I never saw coming, either. Added plus.
I’m excited to share that there is a fantastic GIVEAWAY for this tour, as well! THREE winners (US only, sorry!) will each receive a box set of the Full Fusion series! How awesome is that? Just click the link and go claim your entries!
Until next time 🙂
