book.fave.rave: BEAUTY AWAKENED (Angels of the Dark #2)

✪✪4.5 stars✪✪

I enjoyed reading it though it wasn't as hot as I envisioned it to be.
It more than made up with the sweetest scenes. ❤❤❤

The story is really good. It's full of action scenes, sweet melting scenes and funny stuff. Both of our characters don't feel very deserving of love. They both had to hold back and not give in to the idea of a happily ever after. It was good because together, they found out how it's like to really be happy.

Nicola, the meek heroine who wants to live life to the fullest but can't, has a lovely set of characteristics. Even though she lived all her life with the fear of dying because of a certain condition, she sure stayed good and headstrong. Of course, she had her demons, but dayyymm.. the girl can forgive like nobody's business. I love how she taught Koldo how to forgive and just let go. In turn, Koldo also taught her how to let go of the toxins that surrounded her, keeping her sickness at bay. I think it's also a good thing that Nicola was very much open to new experiences and that she's very understanding of the paranormal world. If she was something like her sister, all fearful and full of distrust, I don't think I would've liked her. She let Koldo guide her, and they became more and more like a good team as the novel progressed. Her best scene of course, is at the end part. That was definitely kickass! Good job girly!! ^_^

Koldo, our tortured hero, is a very sweet, funny and cute guy. Yeah, I know it's kinda hard to believe that such a hard, vicious warrior can be all of those things, but he made it possible. He's so cute especially when he's jealous!!!




“YOU’RE ACTING like a child,” Axel said.
“That’s funny, coming from you,” Koldo replied through clenched teeth.
“You threw alcohol at a puny human male.”
“He’s lucky to still be alive. I could have thrown daggers.”
“Wait. Did you think I was complaining? I was actually cheering.”

That alcohol incident is super hilarious!!!
annnndd.. Let's add this!!!

“We can leave,” Nicola offered.
“That’s all right,” Dex replied stiffly. “My vanity took a hard knock, that’s all.”
“Well, maybe there’s something I can do to help.” Nibbling on her lower lip, Nicola grabbed her water glass, drew in a deep breath and poured half the contents into her lap.
Dex’s jaw dropped as she gasped and grinned—and Koldo hated that another male was seeing her so relaxed, so happy, and that she was striving so diligently to entertain, to please.
“Now we both look like we peed our pants,” she said.
A bark of laughter boomed from the male.
Laughter that should have been Koldo’s.
“Okay, I might have to fight you for her,” Axel said. “That was seriously cool.”
Koldo flashed to outside the restaurant, mentally commanded his robe to become a black shirt and black pants, and marched back inside, this time in the natural realm, where everyone could see him.

“Koldo,” she gasped, though she offered no resistance. “Seriously. What’s going on? Has something happened?”
In the background, he thought he heard someone ask if she wanted the police notified.
He tossed her a glance over his shoulder.

“You’re mine. And I’m keeping you.”

SERIOUSLY... That neanderthal effect was definitely cute, hot and funny! I love how serious he was while ceing cute. Kold sure has his moments! ;p

All in all, I love the story and how it all went. I am very much looking forward to the other warriors' stories. ヅ
