Dear Vicky,Things Are Just The Same Here My Life Is Mapped Out For Years Ahead With A Chance Of Anything ChangingAs She Wrote Those Words To Her Best Friend, Angel Had No Idea That A Gorgeous Stranger Was About To Turn Her World Upside Down Hunter Ryan Was Rich And Famous, Surely Not The Kind Of Man To Look Twice At Angel Yet He Was A Rock To Lean On When Her Younger Brother Fell Sick And Soon His Face Began To Haunt Her Dreams He Teased Angel For Not Living Up To Her Name If Only He D Realize He Was The First Man Ever To Touch Her Heart I am a huge fan of Helen Brooks, and she is almost always an automatic buy for me I find that she really pens a beautiful story and writes such delightful characters I think I enjoy her work so much because I find that she steps out of the stereotypical mold and creates real people who fall in love and find their way towards each other However, I didn t find that to be the case with this book The story line was enjoyable, but the characters fell far short of expectation They were like the typical HP mold with uncontrollable passions towards people you would typically hate, and anatomical descriptions of body parts on fire that were rather silly.Maybe I am just too old to remember, but I honestly can t ever recall my nipples standing at attention when I got close to a good looking guy.Took a little bit than that I was disappointed to find this author falling into that trap Oh well. Two and a half stars She s a self sacrificing, exquisitely beautiful virgin, whereas he s bitter, cynical and a womanizer who is much older He falls in love with her, resents it, and stalks her makes her miserable You know the drill.Fairly enjoyable if you don t mind the h having ZERO personality. I ve now breezed through a number of Brooks backlist and the ones I ve chosen share similar themes characters 1 Older mid late 20s early 30s female virgins2 Older, experienced heroes think mid late 30s3 Heroes who only want no strings relationships due to some woman who done them wrong in the past4 Heroines who are attractive but don t necessarily see themselves as such or don t care about their looks5 Heroines are amazingly perceptive about the heroes past and can see the good man underneath it all6 Kissing and fade to black sex7 Conflicts that could ups be cleared up quickly if the heroine just explained herselfIf you want a very quick read and I mean seriously quick with a HEA and tea Brooks is British , give this a whirl Bonus it s on Open Library. Angels Do Have Wings is the story of Hunter and Angel yes, really Angel spends her days working minor jobs for the hospital with little to no excitement and taking care of her younger brother Toby since her parents death until an accident leads her to cross paths with Hunter Hunter is a surgeon and ruthless to the T Scarred by a traumatic past, he is used to getting what he wants until he comes across the angelic diva Many verbal spars ahead, when Toby falls sick it is Hunter who steps in to help.Misunderstandings, defense mechanisms, crazy brooding hero, innocent firecracker heroine fill this tale of love and lust I wish the story would have been way better if they communicated and didnt spend all the time pushing each other away.Sweet epilogue Safe3.5 5 From the opening pages we are shown what an explosive relationship Angel and Hunter are about to have Angel knows Hunter is powerful but she s not about to let him bully her or weaken her resolve not to get involved with him But at every turn, it seems that he s there just when she needs him to be Hunter tries to convince himself that all he feels for Angel is an almost all comsuming attraction It takes some pushing on Angel s part to show him that there s much much Their sparks leapt off the pages and I read this one in one sitting Available on Open Library.This book had so many high ratings, so I was eagerly waiting to read it, however it just didn t do it for me.The heroine is a beautiful, hard working young woman who is caring for her 12 year old brother after the untimely death of their parents Times are hard but they make do,They meet the Hero when he crashes into her parked car, but it turns out he was avoiding her brother, who ran into the street They have a shouting match, but soon after, the Hero is making known his attraction to her, and makes a pass Later he finds out about their tragic circumstances and tries to smooth things for them Soon after, he sees her with some friends and offers her a ride home and he makes a pass again The Hero is the usual alpha, sampling lots of ladies, committing to none He obviously also wants to sample the heroine despite all her objections None of this is unusual in an HP except that this guy was the doctor of her brother I kinda expected better behaviour anyway.The young brother has a heart condition, so they need the expert services of doctor Hero He convinces the heroine to move into his house, while the brother is confined, ostensibly so he can take care of her uh huh yes Of course he makes yet another pass, on her first night there I found it so creepy how he would forcibly make love to her, especially at her most vulnerable moments It was all just so unethical I didn t really like the Hero.Of course in the end, the explanation is he was just too obsessed with her so he wasn t thinking straight and he hated her for making him feel too much blah blah blah But now he wants to get married and have babies with her He also promises to take care of the brother, so HEA.
