Eleanor has loved her boss Cam from afar for years, but now he wants to retire and send her away. Tearing her heart out would have been kinder.

Archangel Camael must never fall for a woman. If he does, he’ll lose his angelic powers, and he will age like a human. Protecting humans from evil is paramount and has meant periodically reinventing his identity to avoid rousing suspicion. But as his desire grows for his secretary, Eleanor, duty feels more like a burden, because he can’t imagine starting a new life without her.

He can never fall in love.

A force of evil is wreaking havoc and Cam and his Archangel brothers scramble to determine and thwart the cause. The key lies in Eleanor’s tormenting memories, but if they push her too hard, she might snap. Cam must walk the delicate line between protecting Eleanor, appeasing his brothers, and saving the world.

SAVING HER ANGEL reads pretty similar to it's two predecessors, but I enjoyed meeting Eleanor and getting to know Camael better while Missy Jane unraveled their love story. While you can read book three as a standalone, you will miss a few things and you won't always have the full story when things are talked about.

Eleanor has been in love with her boss Cam for years, but Cam has never seen her more than a colleague. Cam is now retiring and not only does that mean she is losing her job, but she won't see Cam everyday anymore either. It's time for Cam to reinvent his identity and that means putting his current identity to rest. As he is in the process of doing that, evil goes after his secretary Eleanor. Cam starts waking up to the fact that Eleanor is a beautiful woman that is on the way to stealing his heart and making him want to fall.

As in most paranormal romances, Cam and Eleanor's relationship is up and down throughout the book. They do make a super cute couple and they have a recognizable spark, but I felt like we only got to see the surface of their feelings for each other. I felt like the writing was missing the depth of feelings I felt from the first couple in the Archangels series. I really did enjoy Cam and Elanor in SAVING HER ANGEL, I just wish the emotions would have jumped a little more off the pages. I guess that has more to do with the writing than the relationship itself though.

I will continue the series because I still really want to hear more about Gabriel. He is mentioned again in SAVING HER ANGEL, but we don't get anymore information on him and I think his story will be phenomenal.

I gave it 3/5 stars

Christine would do anything to get away from it all.

After escaping an abusive marriage and heading up a group of brand new performers, she’s tired and in need of a vacation. So when her sister Sara wants her to go camping out in the mountains of Georgia with the girls, she packs her bags for some rest and relaxation. Not even meeting a gorgeous park ranger like Colton Donnelly is going to distract her.

Except Sara didn’t tell her the real reason for the trip: she’s running away from a terrible secret. One that puts all of their lives in danger.

Now the vacation that Christine so desperately needed is ruined, but that’s the least of her worries. She has to use her wits and skills to save them all. Because she soon finds out that werewolves are very real. And they’ll stop at nothing to get their claws into her sister.
