The story of Angles is a captivating tale about a girl named Caralee. She has a loyal group of friends and one best friend, Teddy who looks out for her all the times. He gets married at the beginning of the story to a lovely girl named Anne. Although the triangle at first looks like he has feelings for Cara and it is going to be a troublesome trio, the story takes on a new drama twist with the appearance of a dashingly handsome man named Sam.
Sam is everything a girl wants, not just by the way he looks but also by his mannerism. The sense of security, sensuality, and his gentlemanly behavior is to perfection. His presence alone brings along turmoil of emotions for Cara, let alone the way he interacts with her. There is a slight problem, though; Cara is already in a relationship with another gentleman, Jason.
Sam’s dashing eyes even makes the front cover of the book.
The protectiveness of Teddy also is dominant throughout the book. In addition, Sam and Jason both are his friends, and he appears to have strong feelings for Cara himself, as well.
This dynamic tale of events does certainly wrap your head in a twist but, thankfully not so much of a knot. The pace and level of understanding are superb alongside the skill in making each character appealing to the reader. The Author has excellent taste in expressing what actually goes on in a woman’s head. There was so much back and forth that even I, as a woman felt like saying “no wonder they say we, as women, are complex.”
I found Cara not as mature and robust as I would have liked her to be. When you have so many men wanting to be with you and constantly trying to steal your affections, then a substantial lead would be more attractive. The issue Cara had was that the men she was in a relationship would not commit to her and in her defense, she does come to a realization that she has to grow up, but it is a little too late. Altogether, her vulnerability was pleasing to the plot, and I enjoyed the interconnectivity of the whole story together.
The ending is sweet and promises a second series. I look forward to finding out what happens to this girl and her friends.
I recommend this book to contemporary romance readers. You will enjoy reading this book in one sitting and it is definitely worth your time.
