Angel, by Jamie Canosa

ANGEL Release Day!!!
Jade's story began in: Falling to Pieces Suffering the bitter tongues of her alcoholic mother and cruel boyfriend, Jade struggles just to look at herself in the mirror. She hates her life, her insecurities, her ineptitudes, but most of all . . . Jade hates herself. She wants nothing more than to disappear, and everyone seems happy to let her. Until Kiernan Parks moves back into town. 

Jade’s been crushing on him ever since kindergarten, when his family moved away. But now he’s back, and looking better than ever. 
Hiding is a way of life for Jade, but Kiernan insists on uncovering the real girl he’s sees trapped inside her. On drawing her out of her shell, and showing her that she is someone worthy of love. 

Together, they fight back the darkness she’s living in. But when they finally step into the light, will the secret Kiernan’s been trying to keep buried destroy Jade, once and for all? 

For some people, happy endings are a fairytale. Now, it's Caulder's turn in: Angel We all hide from the people around us. Strangers, acquaintances, friends, even family only see the parts of ourselves we want them to see. We conceal the cracks and flaws beneath the polished surface we put on display. Because we think we need to. Because we think people won't like us if they see who we really are. Because our egos demand it.

We hide because we're proud. We hide because we're insecure. 

But mostly . . . I hid because I was afraid.
**Warning: Contains Spoilers! Meant to be read AFTER Falling to Pieces.

My thoughts: I loved this book. I had no idea all that was going on behind the scenes of "Falling to Pieces." Caulder is a wonderful character. I liked the interaction with his brother but I LOVED the interaction with Jade. What a beautiful story. I will, of course, be going nuts waiting for the next book in the series!

Thanks for stopping by!
