Review: Savage Angel by Stacy Gail

Savage Angel (Earth Angels #2) by Stacy Gail
Synopsis (Goodreads):
Feel nothing. Sara Savitch's personal mantra has been hard to live by ever since her torrid one-night stand with army doctor Gideon Mandeville. Descended from the Seraphim, angels known as heaven's soldiers, Sara may be an expert fighter, but she's an amateur when it comes to relationships.

Physically unharmed, but still battle-scarred, Gideon has returned to Dallas in the hopes of regaining his faith in humanity—and in himself. Instead he's walked into a nightmare. His father is on a serial killer's hit list, and has hired a personal bodyguard—the very woman who has haunted Gideon's dreams for a year.

As Sara works to build an impenetrable fortress around her client, she yearns to tear down the one around Gideon's heart. With his bitter rejection of warriors, will he ever be able to accept her true nature? Sara must find a way to trust Gideon with her secret as the killer closes in.
My Thoughts: Suh-weet. One badass, warrior woman with the blood of angels running through her versus a guilt-riddled doctor nursing some emotional wounds. My money's on the badass every time.

Seriously, this was a fun book. Sara is... umm, how to put this nicely? She's not very relationship savvy, let's say. Scary things happen when her emotions get the best of her and being around Gideon tangles her up something fierce. She has secrets. He has secrets. The only thing they're absolutely sure of is that they both want to get in each other's pants and that's not really the best idea with a serial killer on the loose. Naturally, when those secrets spill out, things get sticky. And sweaty. And pleasurable. Well, once they work out the fact that Sara's descended from freaking angels and everything.

I liked the mystery behind who was stalking Gideon's father and I really liked how Sara and her team worked together to unravel the clues. Did I mention that I liked Gideon? The noble good guy pushing away those around him because he doesn't think he's worthy/doesn't want them to get hurt slays me. It worked, guys. It worked.

I'm kinda loving this series. Can you tell?
