5 Stars! Gena Showalter did it again!

A wingless angel and a girl tormented by demons. Is there redemption?

"BEAUTY AWAKENED" pulled me in from the very first page and consumed me to the last. I'm in love with the Sent Ones “Angels of the Dark”. Gena Showalter is an amazing author and knows how to tell a story that keeps you entertained and intrigued. What we get with “Beauty Awakened” is positive thinking, action, sexual tension and a little humor in this book.

The healing Koldo teaches Nicola and Laila is all about the power of positive thinking and if you think negative thoughts then those thoughts will start to bring you down. “You speak what you believe, and you believe you’re doomed. If there’s one thing I’ve learned throughout the years, it’s that what you believe is the impetus for your entire life.”

The sexual tension is just right between the main characters and we get one full on sex scene. It takes a talented author to write a romance book with only one actual sex scene and keep it sexy and Gena nailed it! We also get to see a lot of Axel in this book. While Axel acts extremely immature “he adds the comic relief in this book”, you can't help but laugh at his crazy antics and the absurd things that come out of his mouth. We also get an appearance/snippet of William from the "Lords of the Underworld” series.

In this Angel series I noticed while there is a love story the "heat" has been turned down a bit. Can't say that I don't enjoy it. A refreshing change so that you get more of the love story and the bonding of the Sent One and his mate.
Koldo....I love the thought of this big, bad warrior being "brought to heel" but a tiny fragile woman. One who shows him true strength using love, forgiveness, and respect. He might have been sent to protect her and help her heal but as anyone who loves knows, love heals all who feel and cherish that love.
Nicola, admire the fact with all that she has been through she can still find the beauty in life and the world. Her twin, Laila, is giving up and yet she won't let it drag her down or give up on her sister. From the sounds of what Koldo is physically most folks would probably run the other way yet all she could see was his beauty and heart. (Slight nod at the "don't judge a book by it's cover" lesson there Mz. Showalter?)
Now there were some very interesting things revealed about other characters we found in the LOTU series...William the Ever Randy, who would have thought that would be his secret? (Won't spill the beans on the grounds that's something that you need to discover for yourself, and what it does to your perception of William) Axel...who is he and just what is his deal? Also the sighting of Kane in NYC...what is that foreshadowing...more Lords visiting this series?
So yes, this more a story of the angst of falling in love and trying to be worthy of the love than a hot romance with action.

Traumatized angel/sickly human, all kinds of preachy you reap what you sow, let go hate message. Small flashes or mentions of char from Lords of Underworld

Beauty Awakened is book two in the "Angels of the Dark" series and I am in love with this story. Gena Showalter is a queen in writing such riveting paranormal romance novels, and Beauty Awakened is no different. There was something so much more tangible about this book that just gravitated towards this reader. I deeply loved the development of this series so far and for those who are solid fans of the "Lords of the Underworld" series than this trilogy is a must read for you because it is connected to the same world although a bit different. For those new to the "Angels of the Dark" series, it's about archangels that work for the "Almighty" and fight demons to save humans and innocents from their evil machinations.

In Beauty Awakened, we have our hero, Koldo, whose life was rough. He was raised partly by his mother who abused him as a child and tore his wings from his back and then he was sent to live with his father who was just as cruel but more manipulative and evil. Koldo was forced to participate in actions he abhorred but had no choice in. Now he is working with Zacharael's Army, the only one without wings but he does have other abilities like "flashing" from different locations in a blink of an eye. While on a mission, he is sent to a hospital which is where he sees Nicola Lane and he is fascinated and wants to know her but he doesn't fully comprehend the feelings he has for Nicola, only that they are something he has never felt before.

You speak what you believe, and you believe you’re doomed. If there’s one thing I’ve learned throughout the years, it’s that what you believe is the impetus for your entire life

Nicola Lane is in the hospital because her sister is dying from a poison that can't be stopped. Nicola's family was killed by a drunk driver, and her sister is all she has left. But Nicola herself has special abilities, she can see the demons that torment them. But when she meets Koldo, she is fascinated by this brawny tough man that has a heart of gold and honest to a fault and innocent in the way of romantic entanglements. She doesn't know if she can trust him, but she knows the truth when he tells her of the poison in her body and how she must fight it. Soon Koldo and Nicola join forces, and there is some powerful chemistry between these two damaged hearts but they will have to fight a great enemy to find their HEA.

Beauty Awakened is a breathtakingly bold romance that will captivate the hearts of its readers. I was immediately pulled into this book and I never wanted to leave this story. It was magnificent and so beautifully told. In Beauty Awakened, we have a story that brings together a hero who is also a virgin, but so naive about relationships. He doesn't fully understand about intimacy and love but he knows its there and he wants it with Nicola. He knows what he is feeling for her is more powerful than anything he has ever experienced in his life previous. Of course, he has a lot of emotional growth he develops because he has never truly known love and acceptance, the kind that he received from Nicola who is all about love and acceptance. Nicola herself has her own growth and learning curves too, she has issues with trust but together these two pack a punch. I love how willing and open they are in the relationship, that they don't fight too much what they are feeling for each other.

The conflict that we see in the story is an outside force and we some different evil forces that are coming against Zacharael's army, Koldo and Nicola. I adored how Koldo and Nicola fight together to overcome the evil against them including Koldo's father who was believed to be dead. But what occurs in the last half of the story is AWESOMESAUCE!! I love how committed Koldo and Nicola are to each other and the different ways we see them sacrifice for each other. We see how much they are willing to sacrifice to help one another and this is what real love is all about and I love that Gena Showalter shows this in her storytelling.

Overall I found Beauty Awakened to be a beautifully portrayed romance that delves into a world of demons and angels, of sacrifice and true intimacy between two people..... AN AWE INSPIRED ROMANCE ( )
