Review ~ Lash (Broken Angel #1) by L.G. Castillo

Posted April 20, 2013 by Michelle in Uncategorized / 1 Comment

So a couple weeks ago I had the honor of doing the cover reveal for this book.
I was so excited. The cover is gorgeous and I could not wait to share it.
After seeing the cover and reading the synopsis I could not wait till it came out.

Cue Instant Fangirl!!!

I got an email from Mrs. Castillo asking me to review her book.
Once I stopped jumping up and down and screaming like a 
crazy person. The lunatic in me sent her this back
OH MY GOD!!!! I would LOVE to!!!!
an Epub file is perfect.
I’m so excited!!!!!
I can totally have a review for you before the 6th.

If you need anything else before, on release day or even after, 
I will be happy to help out any way I can.
Could I have used anymore exclamation points in this email.

I was so embarrassed 🙂
To make it worse, I posted a status on 
my facebook page with even more enthusiasm explaining how  
I got the chance to review it only to forget she is a fan of my page 
and she liked it, complete embarrassment again 🙂 

Now that I have calmed down and I finished reading the book 
I can hopefully give you a review that has no exclamation points
and doesn’t make me sound like a raving lunatic.

As always lets start at the synopsis
Lash (Broken Angel #1) 
***RELEASE DATE: MAY 6, 2013***

Decades after being banished from Heaven for saving a life he shouldn’t have, Lash is given a chance to redeem himself. His mission: protect Naomi Duran, a young woman who has lost her faith. The assignment proves to be anything but simple when his superiors, the Archangels, withhold key information about Naomi and refuse to restore Lash’s powers. When an unexpected source reveals centuries-old secrets, his trust is shaken to the core, and he begins to doubt those whom he had once considered to be his greatest allies.

Determined to avoid anything that would risk his chances of returning to Heaven, Lash struggles with the greatest obstacle of all—his growing feelings for Naomi. But when her life is threatened by an unknown source, Lash questions the wisdom of the Archangels and his ability to keep her safe.

Soon, Lash will have to choose where to place his faith—in the home he has fought so hard to regain or in the forbidden love he can’t bear to lose.

My Thoughts:
So after all that one can only hope that the book was at least as good as I was hoping. 

You would pray that after all that excitement….did I even like the book?

I LOVED IT, Such a unique story. Lets start with the character Lash who is banished from Heaven because he is just a bad boy but with a big heart and did I mention super sexy  (when I look at the cover all I can think of is sex…I mean sexy, yes thats it sexy) 😉 I loved that he was written as a not so perfect “angel” he still has some major issues and was totally hot (not sure if i mentioned that)

Naomi is a great charcters, She had gone though so much heart ache and almost gave it all up. Although she is “saved” a few times she is not your typical damsel in distress, she is very strong and independent, but she is kind of a pain in the ass and very stubborn (read the book you will totally see why)

Naomi and Lash have such great chemistry, very romantic, caring and intense. I must admit the book only had one sex scene I was kind of looking for more. I really liked them together but regardless it worked. 

There is a lot of secondary characters in the book which made the story complete. I pray the next book is about Jeremy, I loved Lash but there was something about his BFF that makes me want to know more. 

This is a GREAT read with a very unique story.  The ending was fantastic a twist I wasn’t expecting and was left as a To Be Continued. The end actually made me cry not because it was to be continued but because it tugs at your heart (but it could be because I know have to wait for the next book) 😉

Mrs. Castillo did a great job creating an awesome story about Angels and Demons. 
I loved it. I read it in two days and I can not wait for the next book.

Completely Recommend you wont be disappointed. Trust me 🙂
