Detective Jacob Ryder has survived death and is on a special mission. Yet, he has no clue what he's up against or what his special mission. Plus, he is so lucky to get stuck with an angel who is unhappy with her current assignment, which is to keep him alive to fulfill his mission.
Jake cracks me up. Not in the funny way, more like oh my gosh I totally didn't see that coming. When you first start the story Jake is more brooding hero type. However when he's around Liadin (the angel), she tends to bring out his naughty side. Here are a few examples:
"Don't let this pretty face fool you. I can be ridden all night and not wear out."or
"Yeah. Like sour-patch candies. The first taste makes you pucker, but then you hit the sweet spot and can't stop licking all that sugary goodness off your fingers."Bad, bad, bad boy. Not only that he's modest too:
"Yep. I'm brawn, charm, and brains. You're lucky to have me."Then you have Liadin, who isn't a guardian angel, but more archangel. However, she has been given an assignment to watch over Jake. As she gets to know Jake she starts, she has a hard time separating being an angel and possible feelings for him.
I really liked the story. We continue to have the battle of good verses evil and how we are one step closer to the final battle. I love the relationship between Jake and Liadin. Boy they get into hot and heavy. Other than that you truly see witty, charming and sarcastic at it's finest in Angel Unleashed. So, you love angels and a hot bad detective you might want to get yourself a copy of Angel Unleashed.
Let me leave you with my all time favorite line:
