Angel's Hero (Angel, #1)Angel’s Hero by Liz Borino

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The Blurb…

CIA Agent Aaron “Angel” Collins doesn’t take many things on faith. He trusts his gut, his eyes, and his husband, Jordan, an Army Captain. When his commanding officers deliver news of Jordan’s death, Aaron needs proof. The facts don’t add up, and Aaron must decide if he can trust Major General Troy Hart to assist in his quest to discover the truth.
Captain Jordan Collins is battered and disheartened in an Afghanistan prison, but definitely not dead, though he learns his own government believes he is. His only mission now is to stay alive and make it home to Angel, if he can find an ally among the enemy. But someone in the US government will stop at nothing to make sure he never leaves that prison, And Jordan must reevaluate the lines between friend and foe if he is ever to return to his Angel.

So what did I think?

If you enjoy a military story with some intrigue and mystery blended with your romance then this is for you. If you don’t like a cliffhanger, then hang on and don’t read it until after the release of book 2 , Angel’s Truth, which is due 14th March.

Angel and Jordan are married and have been together for many years but their love is still strong. It is interesting that the story is about a long established couple but weaves the story of their first meeting and early days together. The story moves back and forth a little and it took me a little while to get into the swing of things. Told with alternating POV, the story moves from present day to the past and also from Jordan’s POV (deployed overseas) and Angel’s POV (back home waiting for his man).

I did find some of the mystery a little hard to follow and I think this is the impact of the book being relatively short in length but covering a lot of ground without a lot of detail. For example, I still really don’t understand how Jordan made his way back to the US – it was too simple and too quick and I wanted to know more. I am looking forward to reading the second book to clarify a lot of what’s going on – I guess that’s part of the mystery! 🙂

There were a few moments in the story, where some characters said or did something I found a bit odd. (Check out my GR review if you are interested in details)  and I wasn’t overly keen on some of the wording in the sex scenes but overall, I’ve been hooked enough to be keen to see what book number 2 brings.

And of course I want to see them get their happy ending!

I received a copy of this book from the author in return for my honest review.
