Vampire hunter Elena Deveraux knows she is the best- but she does not know if even she is good enough for this job. Hired by the dangerously beautiful archangel Raphael, a being so lethal that no mortal wants his attention, Elena knows failure is not an option—even if the task is impossible. Because this time, it’s not a wayward vamp she has to track. It’s an archangel gone bad. The job will put Elena in the midst of a killing spree like no other—and pull her to the razor’s edge of passion. Even if the hunt does not destroy her, succumbing to Raphael’s seductive touch just might. For when archangels play, mortals break.I’ve been meaning to read this book for quite some time now. It’s on my 5 Books Reading Challenge so I was able to knock some reading challenge books out with this one. Woo hoo!
We’re six months strong this year as a book club and I’m thrilled with that. We’ve had 100% attendance and we’re about 90% participation but getting better. Gone are the days of nobody reading the books and still showing up to book club. Woo hoo! This month, we met up at Black Angus at the Del Amo Mall because well, the book is set in New York and we were going for the whole New York Steakhouse vibes..and it worked well for us. B Nice, Lilo and I got steak (very good steak) and Tash got ribs (wasn’t a huge fan of them) and we had a really great discussion. Thanks to Tasha for putting a great discussion together for us.

Hero: It was unanimous. We all ended up loving Rafael but it was hard to like him in the beginning. We all enjoyed the change that came over him throughout the course of the book.
Heroine: We all loved Elena. She freaking rocked. She was so bad ass and strong that you couldn’t help but love her or want to be her as was the case with me. Someone should dress up as her for Halloween. That would be dope!
Story: It was slow going in the beginning for Lilo, B Nice and myself but it picked up in a major way and we all ended up liking the book and world as a whole. Tasha flat out loved the book and is already on Book 3 in the series. She’s completely sold on all things Guild Hunter. I’m jealous.
Most Memorable Scene: Hmm, we didn’t talk about this but for me the most memorable scene was probably when Elena shot and injured Rafael and was so worried about him afterward. That was the turning point for her, I thought. She was so Team Rafael after that.
Pimp Worthy: Yes. We would definitely pimp this out to anyone and everyone.
Back to You (Coming Home #2) by Jessica Scott
July is America’s birthday so we chose a military romance to discuss next month. It’s a new to everyone but me author and I’m excited to see how everyone likes this book. Holly loved it and cried so I know that I’m going to be a hot mess. I can’t wait.
