The Book Lovers Codex

I am a twenty-something, happily married, mother of one who loves books. I love reading them. I love looking at them. I love their smell. Libraries and bookstores are my holy places... No I'm not being blasphemous. Books are my religion and if you don't like that then you're probably reading the wrong blog I love ebooks too. I love how my Kindle can hold thousands of books and wherever I go in the world they can come with me. I love how the emergence of ebooks has resulted in more books being published than ever before - for better or for worse My love of books is the reason for this blog. I want to share it with other people who love books, I'm opinionated and passionate and I want to share those opinions with you and see what you think, do you agree or disagree? I want to hear your opinions and your recommendations... Basically I want to share the book love! I will pretty much read anything that is a romance but I mainly read paranormal romance, urban fantasy, new adult, young adult, and erotica... Plus the odd book here and there that is not a romance of any description! So that's what to expect from this blog. If you like what you see, please follow!
No One's Angel - Kelly  Walker I don't know quite what to say about this book... It is really quite difficult to gather my thoughts and explain what I'm thinking.

I liked the book. It was a easy to read despite the heavy undertones, but I can't quite explain why I liked it.

It begins with Angel (who is on the run from her nutter of an ex-boyfriend) turning up on the door step of Arion (a lovely guy she met and grew close to online).

I liked that this book was centred around an online relationship. It may seem far-fetched and unbelievable to some people that such a strong bond can form between two people who have never actually met, but I know quite a few gamers and I've seen a close friend maintain a relationship with someone who she met via an online gaming community so I was open to the concept and I thought that it was portrayed very well.

Angel is incredibly damaged by her past and Arion... On the surface he seems to have it all together but underneath he is also damaged. He's just damaged in a different way to Angel.

Arion and Angel were likable characters but... I don't know how to explain it really beyond they were missing that special spark that made them come alive for me.
The secondary characters weren't all that fleshed out and unlike with most new adult books I'm not burning to read more about a secondary character, or more on the primary characters (Arion and Angel) either.

I guess I'd sum this book up as an enjoyable (but ultimately forgettable) read.

Still, if you are a New Adult fan wanting to get lost for an evening, give it a go. It's better than alot of the titles available in the New Adult market.
