Natasha’s writing is addictive. Once you start reading her books you must end! I had to interrupt this reading several times due to personal reasons, but each time I went back the characters were still fresh in my mind. She’s highly creative while crafting her stories.
Alex and Emily share several aspects of their relationship with the first arc in this series, that is told in the two previous Carte Blanche books. The issues with who has the power in the relationship is definitely an aspect that binds the two arcs. They both struggle to understand that there needs to be balance, and accept the consequences when one’s in love.
I had some trouble with Emily’s severe dedication to her book at first, but we understand the heroine’s motivations later on, and also the peculiar way in which she rationalizes. Overall, I enjoyed all the secondary characters the author presented in this book, Natasha always invents fascinating characters.
The ending was predictable and inevitable, and by the end the pacing turned out to be a little slow. I felt that the last couple of sex scenes weren’t as important to the story as the others were, so I believe a lot more could’ve been done with the plot towards the end.
Alex’s Angel is a captivating story with strong characters and filled with delightful sexy scenes! Although this is the third book in the series it can easily be read as a stand alone.
