Review: Trusting An Angel by Missy Jane

Trusting An Angel
Author:Missy Jane
Release Date: April 28, 2014
Publisher: Entangled: Covet
Archangels Book #1
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Review Copy Source: NetGalley

 As the owner of a string of successful nightclubs all over the world, Zerach can have any woman--except for his assistant Isadora O'Donnell. First off, Isadora isn't a one-night-stand kind of girl, and second, her dominating godparents don't approve of him. There's also the fact that he is an archangel with a mission to protect humans from demons, something Isadora can never find out about.

Isadora secretly longs for Zerach's attention but her scarred body and his playboy ways keep her from acting on her feelings. With her only family on the brink of bankruptcy, shes determined to help them, even if it means trying to forget Zerach and marrying the womanizing Jake, a man she'll never love.

Zerach tries to keep Isadora at arm's length, but when a demon starts stalking her, Zerach will stop at nothing to protect the woman he loves. But protecting her could cost him his wings.

What a great start to a new paranormal romance series. TRUSTING AN ANGEL follows Zerach and Isadora as they fall in love and defeat those who stand in their way.

Zerach is a bit of a playboy that doesn't expect to settle down. He has wanted Isodora for a while but as the blurb says, she isn't one-night-stand material. He also happens to be an Angel. Isadora is as innocent as they come and her god parents seem to think that she should be used to save their business by marrying her off to Jake, someone she isn't in love with and hasn't known for many years. Her loyalty convinces her to say yes. I disliked Jake from the moment he was introduced as a character. His attitude towards Isadora and the way he carried himself sent off red flags immediately. When Zerach makes his feelings for Isadora known to hear I did a jig. They couldn't have been more perfect for each other. Both their personalities played well off each other and their romance was nicely paced and felt real. 

* Warning... Minor spoiler...*
I had a bit of an issue with a part of the book/storyline. We quickly find out that Isadora was in a fire and has scars she is ashamed/embarrassed of/scared to show anyone. There is a point in which Isadora finally tells Zerach about it and of course they don't bother him but he tells her that he can heal her and does so right away. Although that is great and all, there was so much emotion towards them that the quickness of them ending felt a bit cheated, short, unemotional. It bothered me that it was dealt with so fast and without as much thought as something like that should be.
*Mild spoiler ended*

TRUSTING AN ANGEL did a really great job of introducing us to the world of the Archangels Series. Zerach's brothers are introduced and I can imagine that they will each be getting their own book and romance as the series continues. I enjoyed the authors writing and I plan to check out her back list.

I gave it 3.5/5 stars
