Title: Nauti Angel
Buy This Book:
Angel Calloway isn't the girl next door. Known for being rude and cursing like a sailor on a bender, she's meaner than the two mercenaries she's followed since she was young. Needing anyone is not what she's about. Or so she thought--until she found the mother she was taken from so long ago, Chaya Mackay, wife to the notorious Natches Mackay.
One night with Angel and devilishly sexy Marine Reece Duquaine was hooked. She nearly blew his head off, and moments later, she blew his mind. He's been after her ever since, wrestling with a desire that fights to consume him. But now he has her in his sights--and is ready to take his shot.
Unless someone else moves in for the kill first..

Nauti Angel was a good story but I didn't like it - BUT not for the reason you think.
I really felt for Angel.
I felt for Angel when she revealed to the Mackay's her mother in particular and the group her secret and she was treated the way she was. It was awful. I actually cried. It broke my heart.
Even after she left and was forced to come back and deal with them after the way they acted it was like her feelings didn't matter what so ever to any of them.
It didn't matter at all what Angel needed or wanted emotionally or mentally after that experience all that mattered was that the Mackays didn't want to feel guilty for the way they treated her, so to make them feel better about themselves she was forced to come back despite how she felt and was manipulated into it. I hated that.
Its insensitive, its cruel, and everyone dismissing it as if it didn't matter upset me.
What's more is that I was insanely disappointed in the Mackays because of how they acted toward her. Where did all that cruelty come from even if was to protect Chaya? They're harsh and cold and the whole situation made me sad. The whole thing dominated the story for me beyond the intense plot and the love story because I was stuck on the interaction that started the whole thing. I liked the story and everything was really great but that one thing really effected the way I've felt about the Mackays this entire time.
Until next time book lovers...
