A special Thank you to Acacia Publishing for sending me this book to review.
Jennie Townsend is unlucky in love, so she is immediately suspicious when a mysterious new student named Nate tries to gain her friendship. But there is something special about Nate, and in spite of her best efforts Jennie finds her feelings for the boy growing deeper every day.
In fact, Nate is more special than Jennie can even imagine. He is a guardian angel, sent to protect Jennie during a most dangerous time in her life. To do so, he must first become close to her - but not too close. The rules for Protectors warn against physical contact and strictly forbid falling in love. But the more time Nate spends with Jennie, the harder the rules are to follow. Will Nate be able to save Jennie from a premature end, or will his own emotions - and Jennie's - get in the way of completing the task for which he was specifically chosen?
I actually couldn't remember what this book what about when I started reading it. So, I went in blind. I only had the cover to go by. Looks pretty good. Loving couple on the front. What's not to like?!
This is a guardian angel story. I've not read any angel paranormal in quite awhile. I'm not up on all the lore involved. Nate is Jennie's Guardian Angel. Her protector. His job is to protect her from a certain event so she is not harmed. That doesn't mean that others won't be, but that she needs to live to finish a greater work in her life. Nate worms his way into her life, and BAM! Oops, he's fallen in love with his protectee. There is protocol to follow and he keeps breaking the rules.
I liked the story line. It was interesting. The middle was a bit slow. There is a bit of a waiting game. Nate and Jennie don't talk for a few months. So, I felt like I kept willing certain things to happen and they just weren't there yet. The romance aspect is light. I wanted a bit more of it, especially when I finally got some! Give me more!!! But, it was a quick read. If you like angels, then this is your thing!
