Quiet Angel

Quiet Angel by Prescott Lane

We all have that someone we can’t forget, the summer it all began, and the sleepless nights wondering what went wrong. 

For Gage Montgomery, that someone is Layla Baxter. When he was 18, he took one look at the chocolate-haired bookworm with porcelain skin and knew his life would never be the same. But it all came crashing down when Layla suddenly and mysteriously disappeared from St. Simons Island -- leaving him with nothing but her angel wing pendent around his neck. For 12 long years, Gage couldn’t shake what happened, if he’s the one to blame, wondering where Layla might be. When their paths finally cross, he’s determined to get the answers he’s spent his life searching for -- and to get the girl, too. Quiet Angel is a story of hope, survival, and lost love made new again. 

“I missed you, too, but you were never far.” Gage touched his shirt with the wings inside. “You were always there.”


3.0 out of 5 stars decent romanceMarch 17, 2015
This review is from: Quiet Angel (Kindle Edition)
*I received this book free in exchange for an honest review*
This was a decent romance. Long lost childhood loves. Reconnecting, falling in love. The characters were well developed. You get a great feel for who they were and who they are now. They go through a lot of things to shape them and you get a great look at that part of their lives.

"Damn, that's a good line," Poppy said. "I mean, panty-dropping good. You should marry him, Layla."
The characters are fun and witty. To me, this is a 4 star romance. But....

There is 1 big reason I'm ranking this a 3 and not a 4.
1. Poppy stole the show. I found myself more interested in her than the characters at certain times. The whole back and forth should I shouldn't I, got to be boring after awhile and Poppy just defintely grabs your interest. I feel the author should just give Poppy her own book instead of putting so much of her in this one. It pulled me away from the romance.

I would have loved to see less supporting cast and more main characters. Though not a boring drag on story, it was tedious at times that no one could make up their mind. There is certainly a lot of emotional baggage that comes out in this story, saving it from getting a lower ranking. Like I said, it's definitely a 4 star read but I had to take a star away for the over use of supporting cast.
