Tess used to spend more hours than she'd care to admit playing her favorite computer game, using the nickname Angel. She could pretend her life was different, and she could pretend Arion was just a friend. But a girl needs more to keep her warm at night than pixels, and she traded her virtual heaven for a real-life hell. Now she's on the run from a past she won't talk about, and the only place she has to go is the doorstep of the friend she's never actually met. When Angel disappeared from their nightly games, it nearly destroyed Arion. He threw himself into work and women, but he can't help knowing the one-night stands will never compare to the angel who haunts his dreams. At first, when she shows up soaking wet and scared-shitless on his doorstep, he thinks his prayers have been answered. But the more Arion tries to keep Angel close, the more her fear drives her away. If they are ever going to have a chance for a future, they'll first have to deal with the past that hasn't forgotten her any more than she's forgotten it-and Arion will have to learn how to let her go.
No One's Angel is a New Adult (NA) Contemporary Romance about a girl learning to fight back and a boy learning how to let go. It is recommended for mature audiences only due to language and sexual content (HEA ending and cliffhanger free).

I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
This book was simply great... Great storyline, great action, great drama, and great smex... Really smart idea of building the chemistry between the characters before the book even began... as they built a relationship online... (they were gamers)... A gamer myself... I can relate to how easily this could be done...
Anyway... I love how these two characters who really don't know each other, find themselves and each other in a sense over the whole course of the story... The ending was perfect too... Even the bad guy was perfect for this story... a bit of realism...
Narration was perfect... superb in fact... No too characters sounded alike... it was great..
I will definitely look for more from this author and narrator...
A good credit, sale or buy....
"Enough angst to fill mosh-pits" is a quote from the book that basically sums up the entire book. Overall I liked the book, but if angst were sugar I'd be in a diabetic coma. Because it was good enough for me to want to hear the ending I put up with it, but all the angst had me thinking "when will this end" very often.
Use books for escape- typically avoid nonfiction. Enjoy action-romance, espionage/military, sci-fi. Skilled writing is most important.
A young woman, Tess, disappears from an online gaming world, which haunts her online flirt, Axle. After a year, Tess unexpectedly appears on Axle's doorstep to escape her abusive, drug dealing boyfriend. The two admit to each other that their longtime, online relationship was more than a friendship as they work through a number of misunderstandings and uncertainties; meanwhile, Tess's ex hunts her.
The plot works, but the writing's grammatical errors are cringe worthy. Neither the plot nor character are particularly original and some of the similes are awkward - even unintentionally funny. Even so, the author demonstrates originality in her writing voice and certainly has potential. She should continue to write, but needs to employ a competent copy editor.
The reader is talented, but the production is poor, i.e. awkward silences, echos, etc. Still, the problems are only mildly distracting.
This is one of the best narrated stories that I have ever listened to! It is a well written love story like none other I've listened to.
It's the plot of the story that's interesting. A love that's true.
