Book Description/Synopsis:

“I will not tolerate him touching you, looking at you, breathing any air you breathe.” He kissed her hard and pulled her into his body as his desire burned. “You’re mine.”

Powerful, half-angel Thea faces the scrutiny of the Angel Realm and is beginning to realize that angels are nothing like how they are depicted in the human world. She is intrigued to hear information about her family and pursues the history that has been hidden to her for so long. As Thea tries to get the answers she needs, her faith in Cam is shaken when truths about him are revealed.

Power angel Cam is concerned when he realizes the Angel Realm has plans for Thea he wasn’t made aware of. He fights to keep her close and protect her from the challenges she faces. However, when the pressures on their relationship bear down, he teeters on the edge of a darkness that could cause her to walk away from him forever.

Ruined by Power is the second book in the Empire of Angels series, a paranormal alpha angel romance series. If you’re a fan of alpha heroes, powerful heroines, paranormal worlds and destined mates, start with the first book, Claimed By Power.

About the end: This book is a continuation of Cam and Thea’s story and there is cliff-hanger at the end.

Sexual scenes and strong language included. Not suitable for readers under 18.

Jennifer’s Review:

*I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review*

Ruined by Power picks up right where Claimed by Power left off with Thea arriving in the Angel Realm. And boy oh boy it’s one hot entrance.

Thea is adjusting to a new place, new people, and basically an entirely new way of life. She needs Cam for support, but he’s dealing with his own issues and an assignment that’s putting a lot of pressure on him.

A place that should bring them closer as mates is slowly tearing them apart. Nothing is happening like either  of them thought it would and neither have control of any of it.

Thea’s learning more about her past, her mother, and herself.   And Cam’s losing himself a little at a time as he battles his way through the Legion demons.

As the story progresses you’ll see the tribulations of love and also its strengths, but beware… the ending… definitely an OMG type of cliffhanger!

On a side note:  there’s so much miscommunication and the sex is sometimes used like a weapon or maybe even a bandage… only destroying or healing, not just for the love and passion it once was. It was too much at times.

Review of Claimed By Power (Empire of Angels #1) by Zoey Ellis

“I trained you to protect yourself.”

 

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Book Length (Est.): 188 Pages

Book Description/Synopsis:  

Not all angels are angelic…

Thea Robinson has never needed anyone’s charity. Sure, her impoverished existence isn’t desired by most, but her ability to manipulate people’s emotions helps her to blend into the shadows of an unforgiving city. When hideous creatures threaten her life, a surly but gorgeous stranger shows up revealing a world she didn’t know existed. She refuses to put up with his rude, arrogant attitude, but how do you dismiss a warrior angel? And does she really want to when his stormy gaze sends delicious thrills straight to her core?

Cam is one of the most ruthless Power angels in the fight against evil. His devotion to kill demons has made him a celebrated warrior in the Angel Realm, even though his motivation stems from grief. When he is assigned to train and protect a half-angel just coming into her abilities, his rage is unparalleled. Until he realizes Thea isn’t like any others. She stirs a carnal passion in him that he can’t shake. He never counted on her being so beautiful… so fierce… so most definitely his.

Jennifer’s Review: 

*I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review*

Thea knows she can manipulate people’s emotions, it’s saved her on more than one occasion, but that doesn’t mean she understands how she’s able to do it. When Cam confronts her and tells her what she is she’s extremely hostile with him. She’s a survivor; always doing whatever it takes. Cam wants her to be a warrior; something she’s not entirely sure she’s capable of, at least not by herself.

Cam is a demon killing angel. He’s a warrior. And when he gets his new assignment, training, he isn’t too thrilled at the prospect. After meeting Thea he’ll discover she’ll drive him insane, push his boundaries, make him want to renig on a vow, and ultimately make him do anything to have her beside him.

Their connection is destined. Their bond tight. Now if only those pesky human emotions didn’t hinder everything.

Claimed by Power has a few passionate moments, some semi-intense battle moments, and a whole lot of girlie attitude. It did seem to kind of fall flat for me in spots, but I have hope that Empire of Angels #2 will dig a little deeper into the characters and develop into something even better.
