Saving Angel by J.L. Weil
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The Plot: Angel moves across the country and meets her next door neighbors for the first time. Nothing is ever the same since. She becomes best friends with Lexi and falls for the charming and arrogant Chase. She also discovers that their whole family is not what they seem and that Hell may be closer than she ever thought before. Being chased by rapid hellhounds and demons may just be the beginning of her new life; that is, if she can survive the chase.
Key Characters: Angel has to be hands down one of my favorite characters crafted ever. I love her fierceness and her vulnerability. Out of all of the female characters that I have ever read about, I relate to her the most. She is the perfect balance of quirky and normal. She has her own mind, ambitions, and goal. She also doesn’t let Chase kick her around, but she can’t help but like him, even when’s he’s a major jerk. It’s called being stupidly, foolishly in love. I really love Angel.
Chase is the perfect jerk guy that you love to hate and hate to love. You think that she could do so much better, but then, you find out that they are actually perfect for each other. They are suitably matched. They play off each other’s strengths…and weaknesses. I couldn’t help but love Chase,too.
Lexi is the bubbliest person ever written about. She could give Luna Lovegood a run for her money. She is the sweetest little thing, but watch out when she gets mad. She gets REALLy mad. lol
Travis is a tragic character in this story. You cannot help but compare him to a lost puppy. I want to learn more about him and I hope that the story will elaborate on him and what went on.
Likes: I love the unique story and plot line. I have never read anything like this one before and I will be reading the next in the series. I actually plan on buying one kindle book every month from a series that I have enjoyed reading on my kindle. This way, it ensures that I continue to read a great series that I love. I start so many series, but never finish them. This will help me finish the digital ones that I love that aren’t that expensive. The next one in this series is 3.99. A little more expensive than what I usually see, but I will buy it. Four dollars for a digital book isn’t bad, especially when you can keep it forever in your virtual library. I also really like the relationships between all of the characters and the secrecy. I feel fully immersed while reading this book, which is a truly great feeling.
Dislikes: I don’t like that there isn’t a lot of world building. I want to really know what this town looks like and feels like. I would have appreciated more descriptions, so I could have pictured what the world looks like that the characters live in. I don’t get a real sense of that. The setting is one of the most important aspects of a book to me and I found this one to be sorely lacking. Hopefully, the next book is better and worth the four dollars spent.
Overall Opinion: This book is almost perfect, if it weren’t for the lack of world building, this book would have been a solid five stars. I highly recommend reading this. It is currently for free on amazon.com, just search the name of the book and it is right there. I look forward to learning more about all of the characters and seeing Angel and Chase’s relationship blossom even more. I just love books were the main characters hate each other and love each other at the same time, don’t you?

I just bought this one on my kindle. I add so many of the free ones, but I dont think I’ve ever read any of them. I always forget.
I really liked it. You should read it when you have time. You might like it. It is very fast paced and not slow going.
Maybe I will. Right now I’m reading the sequel to to kill a mockingbird, and am reading a pirates of the Caribbean book next.
Wow. Good choices.
I think so, but I picked them so of course I’m excited to read them.
