Review: Wounded Angel by Stacy Gail

Wounded Angel (Earth Angels #3) by Stacy Gail
Synopsis (Goodreads):
A descendant of the Angel of Vengeance, Nate da Luca was gifted with an uncanny ability to find things. It made his job as a detective a breeze—until he learned the hard way that some things should remain hidden. After that, his powers vanished, along with his belief in himself. Which is going to make tracking down Gabriella Littlefield for his latest client a challenge.

Personal trainer Ella Little paid a hefty price for her life—now all she wants is to live it in peace. Then a sexy hulk of a man turns up in her gym, reigniting desires she thought she'd left behind along with her real name and hair color.

Desires she can't deny even after she discovers Nate's no stranger to her dark past.

Before he can convince her the attraction is mutual, Nate's going to have to earn Ella's trust. But a demon is playing for keeps in the world of humans, using Ella as bait, and the last thing they have is time.
My Thoughts: I have to admit that I think this is my favorite in the series to date. Nate and Ella are both wonderfully damaged and yet they've managed to overcome things that would cripple others. Big things, guys. BIG THINGS.

Nate is... well, he's kinda like a freight train. He's big and relentless and his appearance in Ella's life shakes things up in a profound way. The tragedy of what caused his powers to vanish has made him cautious. His part in Ella's past keeps him looking for her where others have failed. And the attraction that blooms between the two of them... SMOKIN'! I approve of hot sexy times!

Ella is ridiculously powerful in her own way. Not only has she trained to be stronger and better able to defend herself since her ordeal, she pushed herself though what happened and refused to be a victim. I like strong women. They pretty much rock! As an aside, her emotional response to desiring someone after so long was pretty fabulous.

I liked how Nate found a way to make things work for him after the horror of his childhood. I liked how determined Ella was to take back her life. I liked how Ella's friends stood beside her when she was at her lowest and gave her to tools to put herself back together. I just liiiiiked so many things.

Yes, I'm a sucker for strong, sexy couples who fight through badness and come out stronger. WHO ISN'T?

    1. This series would be a good place to start. However, I will say that if you can stand reading a Christmas story right now, How the Glitch Saved Christmas (from the A Galactic Holiday anthology) made me weepy. Like a faucet. It was awesome. So... yeah. I totally recommend that.
