Review: Angelic Avengers by Kaye Chambers

Angelic Avengers by Kaye Chambers

Book Description:
The road to hell is paved with heavenly desire-

Angelic Avengers, Book 1

Fetch a soul

? No problem. Quell a little shape shifter rebellion? Sh

e can do that, too. Just an

average day in the afterlife of Arabella -Bella- Morrison. Or, what she hopes will become an afterlife after restoring the cosmic

imbalance caused by her suicide over a love affair gone bad.

Protect a willful fallen angel? That takes a little more teamwork than she's accustomed to. Especially when the team includes Gray Devereau, a sexy, half-breed angel who's got an eye on her, in more ways than one. Their attraction could set fire to Heaven itself. Normally not a problem for Bella, but Gray-s sights are set on something more than a fly-by-night affair.
Save mankind from chaos? Bring it on. Let her heart trust a man enough to love again? It-ll be a cold day in hell
Warning: Sexy angels running amok. Heroine hell-bent on saving the world, the rules be damned. Hero bent on making her his, come hell or high water.
About the author: Kaye Chambers has led a wild life. With her college degree in hand, she set off on an adventure to find herself. She’s soaked in the hot springs in Iceland in the middle of a blizzard, sat on a volcano to watch the magic of the Northern lights, stood on the coast in the eye of a hurricane, and been awed by ruins of pagan temples. Somewhere along the way, she found herself along with her wonderfully supportive husband. Marriage, children, and life went in a different direction and her personal goals went with off in another.

Finally, she decided it was time to return to those goals she’d left behind when she began her adventure all those years ago. Writing. With the new laptop her husband gave her for the effort, she hunkered down and found a writing group. This small group of women took her in hand, helped build her confidence, and encouraged her to do what her heart wanted her to. Finally, she started pounding out pages. When it was done, she had no idea what to do with it.
So, she started entering contests. Then she started revising…and entering more contests. Encouraged by the comments, she started submitting it out to publishers and agents while turning her hand to other projects.
Making friends along the way, she’s beginning to see the results of her efforts. Come look into her Chamber of Secrets and share her vision of reality…

My Thoughts: I thought Angelic Avengers was a pretty good read. It was light, filled with humor and beautiful men...hehe. Arabella Morrison's mantra has been to not do anymore favors for angels. Arabella, who committed suicide after her fiance leaves her, has been paying off her "sin" by taking a job as the grim reaper.
Bella is contracted to harvests souls, keeps the local population of shifters in line, and - as she often gets talked into doing - does side jobs for the angels that pop in and out of her apartment. What she did not expect from one of her side jobs was to fall into a "relationship" with Mr. Gray Devereaux, half angel; become the guardian of a child whose mother was murdered by a rogue angel who is out to kill the child which in turn throws her into an engagement so that they can keep the child out of foster care. Oh and truly fall in love...NOT SO MUCH.

Bella holds a one-way ticket to hell because of her suicide. However, due to her living life on her terms and no one else's, you don't ever want her to cash in that ticket. Her relationship with Gray makes you smile, her friendships and banter with the angels are humorous and of course, do not forget Foras, the Devil's General who has always had a thing for Bella. Of course she never noticed. But between Foras and Gray, the testosterone level around her and that's just another thing Bellas has to deal with.

Angelic Avengers was well written and left me wanting more. Hopefully in the next installment of the series we will see more of Foras.
