Title: Angel’s Halo by Terri Anne Browning
Rating: 4/5 ⭐️’s & 2.5/5 🌟’s
Total Rating: 6.5/10
Synopsis: Creswell Springs was a small town in Trinity Count, California. Population 1,500—maybe. It’s a quiet town, with small town values. Its greatest income is the University just outside of the town limits… and the revenue the local Motorcycle Club brings in.
Being part of the MC that was Angel’s Halo was exactly like being part of a family. A scary, powerful, crazy family. It was also like its own society. There are rules, just as there are in every family, every society. But only breaking one of their rules will leave you in a broken, blood pile on the floor…
No one touches Raven Hannigan.
I was the MC’s only weakness. Or so my father use to tell me as I was growing up. Mad Max Hannigan was once Angel’s Halos’ president. He made the rules and everyone was expected to follow them or come face to fist with the enforcer…
I have spent my life in the middle of the MC. I knew the rules—the penalties for breaking those rules. So I knew what would happen to him if I let him break the golden rule… But I loved him, like I have never loved anyone or anything before. I thought my love would protect him.
Of course it hadn’t. When our secret was discovered he was beaten.
So I shouldn’t blame him for leaving me…
As the enforcer I knew the consequences. Knew exactly what was in store for me when Raven’s family found out that I had dared to break my MC’s unforgivable rule. I loved her, so it didn’t matter to me. When her oldest brother delivered my punishment I didn’t scream. Didn’t groan. I took it like the man my MC had made me, and would have done it over and over again if that was what it took to be able to call Raven Hannigan mine.
But then my past reared its ugly head and I had a choice to make. One that I have only lived to regret.
Taking on the job as Angel’s Halos’ new president was my second chance. But… would my secrets destroy everything Raven and I once had?
Review: First of all, right before I get into the review I do want to say that I’m changing up my rating system. The way it’ll be set up: the first rating will be the ol’ school rating of 5/5 stars (⭐️), so just your average review. But I feel like anything can fall into the 4/5 rating and the 5/5 may seem amazing but really it was just written well or I want everyone to read it and the 3/5 may seem ehh but it’s actually pretty good just not quite there. So I want to add mega stars (🌟). Basically like bonus points. So I may feel like a book deserves the 4/5 stars but not quite the 5/5 stars cuz that’s technically 100%. Anyway, the mega stars adds to the original rating. So basically I’m just doing a 10/10 star rating (like in IMDb). So a 6.5/10 is actually pretty good for a rating.
Sorry if it confusing but just think of it like an IMDb rating and forget my complicated explanation. Now, on to the review!
Real Review: I keep saying this about books lately but it’s pretty easier to entertain me. Give me a decent book and I’ll love it as long as it didn’t bore me at any point. This book though, I love! Well almost haha. The things about this book, I love the relationships and the heartbreak (I sound like a masochist) and how the characters handled it. There was also some development so the ball kept on rolling.
I never once got bored in this story but I do have to point out something rather annoying.
The POVs. Oh my goodness, they change so darn much I’m surprised we didn’t get a POV from every character mentioned in the book. There were about 6 or 7 different POVs throughout the book. First I was a little turned off by that (I don’t mean sexually, duh) because I felt like there could’ve been a whole book written on these 2 specific POVs rather than just getting a taste of what is going on with this relationship. I warmed up to it after a bit but then other POVs just started adding up that by the end of the book I was going to tear my hair out. The book is meant to be about the two main characters yet suddenly it became about everyone. Now I wouldn’t mind that if the synopsis gave us a little insight to these character like they did with the 2 main characters but oh well. I may be overreacting but those are my thoughts.
So this story ended up becoming more of a movie than a general book due to all the POV changes. That’s not bad but kind of annoying when you just want to read what happens between the two main characters and don’t really care for the others’ POV at the moment.
I still recommend reading this series. I’m going to start on book 2 (🤞🏻🤞🏻 it won’t have too many POVs but highly doubt it) but if you’ve read this then let me know what you think about it.
I keep forgetting this but here is the link to get this for ebook. Get it while you can cuz it’s discounted (free) at the moment:
Until next time lovelies.
