Winged - L.M. Pruitt I didn't know what to think going into this book. Especially when I realized it was another angel book, and I had just finished 2 others; one mediocre and one decent. But I freaking loved it for some unknown reason. And that makes me happy :-) I guess I was going through an angel kick when I signed up to be on all these tours. ANd I wasn't sure I was going to even get a chance to read this one, but boy am I glad I did.Joanne's life sucked. Well, ok maybe it wasn't horrible, it was just, stifling. So when she dies doing something terribly heroic, she jumps at the chance to become a Winged, human not quite angels, that help battle demons. But there is pretty intensive training involved. With the Archangels. Who of course are sexy. And she manages to catch their eye on day one. But not in the best of ways.And that's when things get interesting. Pruitt has a way of taking you on a journey, that you think is predictable, then spins it and you have no clue where it is going. Then you are settled in a peaceful blanket of familiarity again and just when you get comfortable, some jerk comes along and steals your blanket. What an ass.And the sex ... *fans self* is very hot. And OH MY GOSH she wasn't a virgin? What is this world coming to? I'll tell you, more relate-able characters, that's what.I really don't want to say any more about the book, for fear of giving things away. While I wouldn't call the twists HUGE, they are part of what made the book fun for me. And I want it to be fun for you too.
