Archangel's Kiss  - Nalini Singh, Justine Eyre
Likes: * Elena and Raphael clearly love each other and the chemistry is so there. They still have to work on getting to know each other and trusting and actually building a real relationship. Kudos to the author for not making love solve everything.* Elena is kind of a badass but she also knows when to shut her mouth. She also has to work and train hard. She's not naturally good at everything. In other words, she's a very realistic and well-developed character.* The racy bits were well-written and non-gratuitous.* The slow reveal of Elena's traumatic memories as she was recalling more and more was really well done. I felt like I got to know her backstory better in an engaging way.* Audiobook version - the narrator does a good job differentiating between people.Liked less:* The pacing got a little bogged down for me, especially with the mystery plotline. When the reveal happened, I felt a little let down.* I was also able to call Lijuan's surprise before it happened.
