Unguarded by Ashley Robertson
Guardian angel Selene was so close to becoming an archangel—the supreme of all beings—until she fell in love with Cole, a forbidden dark one. Once she discovers her vampire lover has been kidnapped and the only way to save him is by abandoning her number one priority—Caitlyn, her human charge—there really is only one answer in Selene’s mind, even though leaving Caitlyn unguarded will most likely cause Selene to fall from grace.
But her choice to save Cole doesn’t come without a price…and now Selene is racing against time to not only save her dark lover, but find a way to keep Caitlyn alive as well.
With the help of a new vampire ally, Luke, Selene will push her diminishing angel abilities to the point where her very existence lies in the balance. Now threatened with the chance of becoming a fallen angel or even dying, Selene can only pray she’ll have enough time—and good grace—to save the ones she loves.

In a nut shell: good story, pace was a little slow, connected more with Luke than anyone else… Selene was ok though
I really liked this story idea. Guardian Angel falls in love with a Vampire… good loves bad… forbidden love… yep it is all of that – everything we love, right?! I’ve read a lot of stories about love that is forbidden and the aftermath of those actions – this one follows the same arc but the initial love is something I have not seen before. I really like it! I did enjoy the story but I didn’t really feel connected to Selene the MC. I really didn’t like Cole much at all… which is odd right? I usually totally love the BF of the MC, but this time I actually connected and felt invested in Luke. I usually flip flop back and forth between the BFs, but this time I didn’t – I was Team Luke from page 1, or whenever he enters, but you know what I mean, don’t sass me! LOL!
I would love to read more about what happens to Luke & Selene… and Cole if I have to. I would love to see what comes next for them all.
I love that the normal end isn’t the end… and I can’t say more because that would be spoilery and that’s just mean... and while I’m bitchy some days and snarky every day, mean I am not. Spoilers have their place but you should go looking for them specifically right? I hate to be the one who spoils anything for my fellow book lovers like all you awesome people! Ok, climbing off the soap box now…
Bottom line – I think you might like this book – check it out (links are below for you)!
