Series: Knight Security #2
Published by Smashwords Edition on September 23rd 2016
FINAL DECISION: Nice story that was a good one time read. I liked the characters and their story although the short format meant that it was a bit rushed.
THE STORY: Eight years ago, Gabriel Knight fell for a young beauty Angel. The two only had weeks together before he had to go to Afghanistan to save his brother. By the time he had returned, Angel was gone. Now she walks back into his life, married and with a seven year old son. She desperately wants Gabriel’s help in locating and rescuing her son who is being held by her estranged husband.
OPINION: This story was good. There was nothing terrible original about the story, but I enjoyed the characters and their interactions. For a short story, I thought that the character’s journey was handled well and I liked and was interested in them. Yes, things were resolved too quickly and too easily, but this is a novella and that is almost always the case with such a short story.
I thought that the romance between Gabriel and Angel was good. The two had chemistry and were able to handle the love lost, secrets revealed story with an interesting twist. I liked these two. When my biggest complaint is that I wish there story was longer, I give it a win.
WORTH MENTIONING: This is a short novella. It also sets up the next book in the series.
CONNECTED BOOKS: CHALLENGING GABRIEL is book 2 in the Knight Security series. It can be read as a standalone as you don’t need to know anything about
STAR RATING: I give this novella 3.5 stars.
