Angel After Dark by Kahlen Aymes - Blog Tour, Book Review, Giveaway

Dr. Angeline Hemming is a beautiful, sassy, no-nonsense type of girl who has risen from a difficult past to become one of Chicago’s most successful and respected criminal profilers. In exchange for free commercials to promote her favorite charitable causes, Angel answers calls and gives relationship advice on a Friday night radio program.

Alexander Avery is a gorgeous and successful corporate genius who doesn’t believe in love. When his girlfriend-of-convenience calls into Angel’s program, he is furious with the show’s host who doles out (what he considers) blind advice, without knowing all the facts… and he decides to give her a piece of his mind, and his side of the story!

When Angel informs Alex he’s the one in need of a much-deserved lesson, all hell breaks loose as these two type-A personalities battle it out for control over minds and hearts, and yes, in bed. Not only are they fighting each other at every turn, but they are also struggling to uphold the convictions they each live by.

It’s unclear who is stronger, but both must discover that to get what they desperately want, they may have to give a little… or a lot.

Dr. Angeline Hemming AKA Angel had risen to the top. She had a humble beginning, and now she’s not just another pretty face in the crowd but also one of the most respected criminal profilers in Chicago. She also hosts a late-night radio program that gives relationship advice in exchange for free commercials to promote her charities.

Mr. Alexander Avery AKA Alex is a successful, HOT, corporate executive who doesn’t really believe in love. He values privacy in his life, most especially in his relationships. So when Whitney, his current girlfriend-of-convenience called and whined in Angel’s show – he decided to give her a piece of his mind and demanded to give his side of the story.

When they finally met, sparks were all over the place. No one was backing out, they were in for the battle of their lives – battle for control, and for the safety of their hearts.

The first time their eyes meet – there was already something between them. Thanks to his best friend, he finally met the girl who had been in his mind for a while. Angel was not just beautiful, she was smart too. I love her conviction, her determination and her passion for work. She didn’t let threats scare her to seek out for truth. But when it comes to risking her heart, she got scared. Especially when she was risking it with a player. She had been burnt before, and she vows never to be in the same place again. But how can she fight the chemistry between them, when each time they were in the same room – both of them are ready to explode?

Alex – he was persistent. He gets what he wants and he wanted Angel. But not just for a short-time, he was willing to prove to her he was in for the long haul. Problem is that, she didn’t seem to believe him. She was busy guarding her heart, while he was subtly offering his.

I wonder who’s going to lose first. Both of them have powerful personalities and don’t have a good relationship with defeat. It was fun watching them dance around the overflowing sexual tension ever since their eyes met at the home depot – it didn’t help when his best friend had purposely set them up to finally meet in person.

When she finally gave in –

It was so HOT I think my sheets are burning…

Problem is, she was in danger because of her work. She didn’t like getting scared, and often deny that she needed protection. He wanted her protected. He would do anything to keep her safe, even if it means collecting information behind her back…

The ending –

I can’t believe she ended it that way!!! Argh. What a cliffhanger!!!! I wasn’t really expecting that, I wanted to know what will happen to the both of them, who is their enemy, will they finally give in into their emotions?? Yay. I guess I have to wait for the next book in the series!
