No One's Angel by Kelly Walker

Title - No One's Angel
Author - Kelly Walker
Genre - Contemporary, Adult, New Adult, Young Adult, Romance, Contemporary Romance
Source - NetGalley
Synopsis - Tess used to spend more hours than she’d care to admit playing her favorite computer game, using the nickname Angel. She could pretend her life was different, and she could pretend Arion was just a friend. But a girl needs more to keep her warm at night than pixels and she traded her virtual heaven for a real life hell. Now she’s on the run from a past she won’t talk about, and the only place she has to go is the doorstep of the friend she’s never actually met.
When Angel disappeared from their nightly games, it nearly destroyed Arion. He threw himself into work and women, but he can’t help knowing the one night stands will never compare to the angel who haunts his dreams. At first, when she shows up soaking wet and scared-shitless on his doorstep, he thinks his prayers have been answered.
But the more Arion tries to keep Angel close, the more her fear drives her away. If they are ever going to have a chance for a future, they’ll first have to deal with the past that hasn’t forgotten her any more than she’s forgotten it, and Arion will have to learn how to let her go.

I'd say this book is a mushy New Adult book.
Sometimes you read a book and you scoff at the plot, or parts of it. How they met? How they got away with murder? How they cheated death? And it wouldn't surprise me that there are readers out their who think like that about this book. 

I play games online, and whilst I haven't connected like that with anybody I can see it happening.

No One's Angel is about two Gamers who meet online. Their relationship grows, only communicating online and via phone until suddenly Tess suddenly stops replying back and stops playing the game. And then like a damsel in distress she turns up at his house refusing to tell him why she's their because this is the 21st century and women can sort their own problems out. *Snort* More like pray her problems won't catch up with her. Which every reader knows they will... but yeah... I actually quite liked it when her 'problem' came to find her. That part I thought was written really well. I remember being quite excited because the bad guy was acting like a very good...Bad guy... If that makes sense. 

As for the rest of the book, it's your typical angst, funny, dramatic read.

It's a read you will enjoy whilst reading and one where the plot stays with you more than the characters themselves. I quite liked it. Full of little cliches but you can guess that after the first couple of chapters.


3.9/5 A light read that you'll know will end with a happily ever after. :)
