eARC Book review: Nauti Angel (Nauti #9) by Lora Leigh
Available November 7th 2017
eARC Provided by publisher through Netgalley
Angel Calloway isn't the girl next door. Known for being rude and cursing like a sailor on a bender, she's meaner than the two mercenaries she's followed since she was young. Needing anyone is not what she's about. Or so she thought--until she found the mother she was taken from so long ago, Chaya Mackay, wife to the notorious Natches Mackay.
One night with Angel and devilishly sexy Marine Reece Duquaine was hooked. She nearly blew his head off, and moments later, she blew his mind. He's been after her ever since, wrestling with a desire that fights to consume him. But now he has her in his sights--and is ready to take his shot.
Unless someone else moves in for the kill first...
I have to confess I have not read every book in this series. I'm missing a few in the middle but i did read Natches and Chaya's book way back when it came out so i knew the history there before starting this one. Angel is as tough as they come. Tougher than she should have to be. She thought she was abandoned by her mother when she was only three. Now 20 years later she is forced to lay it all out there shocking many. Once the cat is out of the bag though things get crazy when someone also seems to be trying to kidnap Bliss and kill Angel. This is a emotional book for pretty much all the characters. There's a lot of intense danger mixed in although nothing really actually happens until the very end were made to feel like something is imminent. There's a bit of a twist at the end that is actually pretty easy to see coming. Parts are very predictable and if the parties involved actually acted like adults considering the dangerous situation they were in things could've been figured out sooner. Angel kind of is made to have her feelings dismissed at the beginning and a better part of the book. This angered me because between her and Chaya she is still the child in this scenario. Why should she forgive instantly after all the stuff she's gone through in the past twenty years? Somehow the book still worked for me over all. If i overlooked the stuff that bothered me. I think it was Duke and Angel that made it for me. Angel is tough and she gives no quarter to anyone for being so. Duke is there for her backing her up in every way. Over all i enjoyed it.
