In Nobody’s Angel we get Marc d’Alessio story. Marc, like the other Masters, has a lot of deep-rooted issues and guilt. These result in him not wanting to get close to a woman and staying away from dom/sub relationships. One night he rescues Angelina from an awful BDSM scene in the club while on DM duty. However, he immediately feels guilt over not getting there sooner. Angel left an impression on him, the first woman in a long while and he cannot keep her out of his thoughts. Angel though doesn’t remember much from that night (passing out after the drama) other than what she describes as a “dream hero”, a man straight out of her fantasy who made her feel safe again.
Some weeks later Marc and Angel meet again at a bar. Marc recognizes her immediately and realizes he still feels very protective of her and is completely attracted to her. However, he does not let on who he is and here the deception begins!! Angel does not remember Marc but picks up on words and feelings when with him that reminds her of her “dream hero”. Add to this the further complication of gorgeous Luke who has his own issues and also has feelings for Angel for very different reasons.
Nobody’s Angel is HOT and well written in the sense that you get that emotional connection with the characters and feel what they are going through.
I don’t want to go into the story further so as not to spoil it for anyone.
So why the reason for not knowing how many stars to give it..well…I really liked the story, loved all the characters but it was quite slow and repetitive at times. Without giving too much away the “subbie training sessions” started out really good but never got going, they were drawn out and repeated but never really got anywhere. Angel and Marc also seemed to “over-think” so much that it got a bit annoying. But I will say though that it was interesting to see the relationship evolve and the passion and the realization that Angel makes.
I am chuffed that I don’t have to wait for Adam’s book because his story intrigued me from Masters At Arms and the way this book ended has me wanting to know what is next!
