Dr. Angeline Hemming is a beautiful, sassy, no-nonsense type of girl who has risen from a difficult past to become one of Chicago’s most successful and respected criminal profilers. In exchange for free commercials to promote her favorite charitable causes, Angel answers calls and gives relationship advice on a Friday night radio program. Alexander Avery is a gorgeous and successful corporate genius who doesn’t believe in love. When his girlfriend-of-convenience calls into Angel’s program, he is furious with the show’s host who doles out (what he considers) blind advice, without knowing all the facts… and he decides to give her a piece of his mind, and his side of the story! When Angel informs Alex he’s the one in need of a much-deserved lesson, all hell breaks loose as these two type-A personalities battle it out for control over minds and hearts, and yes, in bed. Not only are they fighting each other at every turn, but they are also struggling to uphold the convictions they each live by. It’s unclear who is stronger, but both must discover that to get what they desperately want, they may have to give a little… or a lot.
I loved this story! It has everything I look for in a book: a clever storyline, well-written characters, an intelligent heroine and a high steam factor. And a HOT hero by the name of Alex. This is the first book I have read by Kahlen Aymes and I love her writing style! The main characters are not all good or bad, they are very human and the chemistry between Alex and Angel is fantastic.
Angel and Alex have a chance meeting at the beginning of the book but they really don’t get together until about midway though the story. Nothing felt rushed. I loved the way the author built a connection between them, and it made me as a reader feel connected to the characters. Alex is gorgeous and is used to treating women as objects until he meets Angel. But Alex really is a multidimensional character and not a bad guy. He just never felt an emotional connection to any of the women he was with. Angel is cautious at first with Alex but I loved how she really gave in to her emotions; Alex was very honest with her about his feelings towards her and really opened up to her. I mean, who can resist that?
Angel After Dark has a suspenseful subplot and while not exactly a cliffhanger, ends on an open-ended note. The sex is absolutely off the charts, and along with the great characters and supporting characters, makes for a delicious, hot read.
