Synopsis (Goodreads):
Miami's best bounty hunter, Nikita Tesoro will do anything to collar a fugitive. Including stepping into a stripper's stilettos for the night. Outsmarting her rival Kyle Beaudecker is just a bonus. Despite the sexual tension sparking between them, Nikita keeps a professional distance from "Hurricane" Kyle. After all, she can't get hurt if she doesn't care.

A descendant of the archangel Barakiel with the power to harness electricity, Kyle should be focusing his energy on tracking down a demon that may be hiding in the human realm. But he's a lover, not a fighter, and he'd much rather use his special talents for pleasure: specifically Nikita's. And teaming up to find a bail jumper means spending lots of time together…

But when their case takes a turn for the demonic, Kyle can no longer hide his true nature from Nikita. He'll do whatever it takes to win her heart—even stop the apocalypse. But he can't do it alone.
Thoughts on Dangerous Angel: I've enjoyed all the books in this series, but I think Kyle's devil-may-care attitude might be my favorite. I also think I said the last book was my favorite. Which just goes to show that Stacy Gail gives good angel. (Gawd, somebody tweet that and credit it to me so I can preen and buff my nails when it goes viral.)

BUT SERIOUSLY, we get some outstanding closure on the ongoing demon problems. Kyle gets to show how (wait for it) energizing his presence can be when he and Nikita start tangling up the sheets. We get to meet up with the couples from the previous books, plus a few new faces. Hey, MenloNotThePark, you're kinda cool. I wouldn't mind seeing a little more of you down the line.

But let's get back to Nikita and Kyle. Nikita has a teeny, tiny bit of baggage she's carting around from her childhood. Nothing major. It's just shaped her into the badass she is today. And it might have wounded her a little on the inside. Kyle's also been shaped by his past. In his case, it's his father's addictions. However, they helped make him aware of his limitations and he's used his knowledge to make himself strong.

The showdown to stop the apocalypse is appropriately badass. Nikita and Kyle are smokin'. The entire crew who show up to stop the big bad from happening rock. And I'm still kinda smitten with Menlo. It must be the scar.
