BW My Review

Melanie Tomlin had just successfully made a very creative and entertaining story full of surprising scenes that will make you love this book.

As always! I’m a craver for vampire stories. That’s what I came upon seeing the cover. I just didn’t expect it to be so different from the other vampire books, and all I could say is that the author just made me love her.

“In my opinion humans are the only monsters on this planet. As for demons… I think we all have our own personal demons, but that’s it.” – Melanie Tomlin, Angel’s Kiss

This book just tells us how Helena, a girl that just wanted to die, stumbled on a vampire that will only change her life. After what happened to her and the vampire, who died after drinking on her, an angel came across where they are. Not knowing what she was, that angel named Danny decided to keep her and see for himself if she was a threat or not. But, as soon as she discovers what she is and what her powers are, both of them will fall on some unexpected steamy relationship and will face different kinds of dangers and threats.

The author did some twist on what we already know about the vampires, angels, werewolves, zombies, and all sorts of creatures we might know. The author had an in-depth explanation of the bible teaching and changed some of the information that we know about it. The author just did an excellent job of creating a much better story out of it.

It’s only a matter of time before our worlds collide and mortals realise that the stuff of dreams and nightmares is real. – Melanie Tomlin, Angel’s Kiss

Sometimes the narration is slow, and sometimes it is not. But, nonetheless, it never destroys the intensity I’d feel with each word I’ve just read. What amazed me more is how my curiosity stays and how it never changes until the end.

“Men and angels think very much alike – shoot first, ask questions later.” – Melanie Tomlin, Angel’s Kiss

Helena and Danny are so perfect for me. They are the characters that you’ll love. Their first meeting is somehow serious, but with Helena’s being a mortal before and having a lot of questions on her mind, it just made this book more enjoyable.

I loved Helena very much! I can hardly say that I somehow see myself in her. She’s a hard-headed or what they called a pig-headed girl, but somehow she also manages to justify those actions of her. She is also hilarious and clever. She is so rational in a way that she always thinks about the pros and cons before doing a decision or an action.

Danny, or better known as Danizriel, is so lovable. Being an angel just added more points! When he started to become naughty, all I can say is that I want him out of the book and just be mine. He just made me put him as my top #1 book boyfriend.

“Mortals’ beliefs are so funny,” he laughed, “He gave you the Ten Commandments – which you couldn’t follow, by the way – and ten only, yet you create even more rules to make your lives difficult. No sex before marriage, sex only to reproduce, no meat on Fridays and the list goes on.” – Melanie Tomlin, Angel’s Kiss

I had a lot of fun reading this. The action and romantic scenes just made it more beautiful. This book just made me curious and laugh a lot. My smile on my face never fades as I keep on reading this. One of the best scenes for me was when Helena had some practice time with her so-called friends, and when she attacked those vampires by using her power.

“Nothing is impossible, just highly improbable” – Melanie Tomlin, Angel’s Kiss

The writing style and the way the story moves was just amazing. I know that all paranormal and fantasy lovers out there would enjoy reading this as much as I do.

    • Thanks! It is so amazing! I just didn’t expect the twist in the story. I just thought it is just a common vampire story but with an extra character which is an angel. The trailer also makes me excited to read the next book.
