I ve now breezed through a number of Brooks backlist and the ones I ve chosen share similar themes characters 1 Older mid late 20s early 30s female virgins2 Older, experienced heroes think mid late 30s3 Heroes who only want no strings relationships due to some woman who done them wrong in the past4 Heroines who are attractive but don t necessarily see themselves as such or don t care about their looks5 Heroines are amazingly perceptive about the heroes past and can see the good man underneath it all6 Kissing and fade to black sex7 Conflicts that could ups be cleared up quickly if the heroine just explained herselfIf you want a very quick read and I mean seriously quick with a HEA and tea Brooks is British , give this a whirl Bonus it s on I am a huge fan of Helen Brooks, and she is almost always an automatic buy for me I find that she really pens a beautiful story and writes such delightful characters I think I enjoy her work so much because I find that she steps out of the stereotypical mold and creates real people who fall in love and find their way towards each other However, I didn t find that to be the case with this book The story line was enjoyable, but the characters fell far short of expectation They werelike the typical HP mold with uncontrollable passions towards people you would typically hate, and anatomical descriptions of body parts on fire that were rather silly. Maybe I am just too old to remember, but I honestly can t ever recall my nipples standing at attention when I got close to a good looking guy. Too Two and a half stars She s a self sacrificing, exquisitely beautiful virgin, whereas he s bitter, cynical and a womanizer who is much older He falls in love with her, resents it, and stalks her makes her miserable You know the drill. Fairly enjoyable if you don t mind the h having ZERO personality. é Angels Do Have Wings é From the opening pages we are shown what an explosive relationship Angel and Hunter are about to have Angel knows Hunter is powerful but she s not about to let him bully her or weaken her resolve not to get involved with him But at every turn, it seems that he s there just when she needs him to be Hunter tries to convince himself that all he feels for Angel is an almost all comsuming attraction It takes some pushing on Angel s part to show him that there s much muchTheir sparks leapt off the pages and I read this one in one sitting
Angels Do Have Wings is the story of Hunter and Angel yes, really Angel spends her days working minor jobs for the hospital with little to no excitement and taking care of her younger brother Toby since her parents death until an accident leads her to cross paths with Hunter Hunter is a surgeon and ruthless to the T Scarred by a traumatic past, he is used to getting what he wants until he comes across the angelic diva Many verbal spars ahead, when Toby falls sick it is Hunter who steps in to help. Misunderstandings, defense mechanisms, crazy brooding hero, innocent firecracker heroine fill this tale of love and lust I wish the story would have been way better if they communicatedand didnt spend all the time pushing each other away.
