Review: Quiet Angel by Prescott Angel

Quiet Angel
Kindle Edition, 296 pages
Published by self-published
Release Date: February 24th 2015

We all have that someone we can’t forget, the summer it all began, and the sleepless nights wondering what went wrong.

For Gage Montgomery, that someone is Layla Baxter. When he was 18, he took one look at the chocolate-haired bookworm with porcelain skin and knew his life would never be the same. But it all came crashing down when Layla suddenly and mysteriously disappeared from St. Simons Island -- leaving him with nothing but her angel wing pendent around his neck. For 12 long years, Gage couldn’t shake what happened, if he’s the one to blame, wondering where Layla might be. When their paths finally cross, he’s determined to get the answers he’s spent his life searching for -- and to get the girl, too. Quiet Angel is a story of hope, survival, and lost love made new again.

“I missed you, too, but you were never far.” Gage touched his shirt with the wings inside. “You were always there.”
Reese's Review:
 I received a copy of Quiet Angel for an honest review.

Quiet Angel talks about two peoples first love and their second chance at it twelve years later.

Gage and Layla had one summer on a beach. One summer was all it took for them to fall for each other, and then Layla disappeared and Gage never knew what happened to her. Twelve years later they meet again at an airport and Gage knows he’s not letter her go again. The story Quiet Angel goes over why Layla left and her dark past as well as what she has been building for herself since she was with Gage all those summers ago. Layla and Gage have an instant love connection that can’t be denied and as they story goes on and they deal with each others’ insecurities they grow together as a couple.

I wanted to like this book, but it fell short for me. I didn’t like how the story would switch from perspective to perspective within a paragraph and the characters seemed a little dry to me. The first sentence about Gage thinking about his abs was the start of a downward cycle for me. I mean who thinks like that? The writing style really wasn’t for me. I couldn’t tell a lot of the time if the author was describing the setting or if the characters were.

Overall this book wasn’t for me. I wasn’t a huge fan of the religious aspects of the book and how Layla saw an “angel” as more of a fact and less paranormal. It just became too much and wasn’t for me at all.

Prescott Lane is the author of First Position and her new release, Perfectly Broken. She is originally from Little Rock, Arkansas, and graduated from Centenary College with a degree in sociology. She went on to receive her MSW from Tulane University, after which she worked with developmentally delayed and disabled children. She married her college sweetheart, and they currently live in New Orleans with their two children and two crazy dogs. Prescott started writing at the age of five, and sold her first story about a talking turtle to her father for a quarter. She later turned to writing romance novels because there aren't enough happily ever afters in real life.
