“SOMEBODY’S ANGEL was full of healing, heartbreak, love and family.  It took me low, it broke my heart, it picked me back up and let me see hope. ” ~Under the Covers

Kallypso Masters has a way at breaking down her characters, splitting them open for all of us to see their deepest issues.  We’ve known Marc had some things he hadn’t worked through in his past that were interfering with his relationship with Angelina.  We started to see that in the previous book, but to see the extent of how broken their relationship really was in this book broke my heart.

I have come to care for these characters truly as if they were real, and a big part of this book was like hitting a wall.  I felt Angelina’s pain at not getting through to Marc.  At not getting him to open up to her and let her help him.  It was almost too much to read.  Then Marc seeks help and he does find the root of his problems, which unearths a lot of family secrets buried many years ago.

The feeling of family is strong in this book, and that is my absolute favorite part of this book.  The parent/son and sibling relationship with the d’Alessio’s, the family bond that Marc (and Angelina) have with the Masters at Arms people and the family bond formed between Marc and Angelina.  And how family will be there for you no matter what.

It was hard for me to read about Marc’s “treatment” because I wasn’t happy to see him in that place.  But it brightened my heart once we passed that part and we were able to find some healing.  Things, as usual, aren’t tied neatly with a bow.  But that’s real, and life takes constant work.  Serious issues don’t magically go away.

SOMEBODY’S ANGEL was full of healing, heartbreak, love and family.  It took me low, it broke my heart, it picked me back up and let me see hope.  And let me feel love.  That love, that bond, that deeper thread that connects the characters in this series and shows me they can all help each other.  And although this wasn’t my favorite book in this series, it was still overflowing with emotion.

I can’t wait for Luke’s story.  Loving the setup and what the author is letting us glimpse into what happens after the ending of NOBODY’S ANGEL.  Anxiously awaiting!  As usual.

About Kallypso Masters

Kallypso Masters writes emotional, realistic Romance novels with dominant males (for the most part) and the strong women who can bring them to their knees. She also has brought many readers to their knees—having them experience the stories right along with her characters in the Rescue Me series. Kally knows that Happily Ever After takes maintenance, so her couples don’t solve all their problems and disappear at “the end” of their Romance, but will continue to work on real problems in their relationships in later books in the series.
Kally has been writing full-time since May 2011 and Somebody’s Angel is her fifth book in the series, preceded by Masters at Arms & Nobody’s Angel (#1 and #2), Nobody’s Hero (#3); and Nobody’s Perfect (#4).
Kally lives in rural Kentucky and has been married for 30-1/2 years to the man who provided her own Happily Ever After. They have two adult children, one adorable grandson, and a rescued dog and cat.
Kally enjoys meeting readers at national romance-novel conventions, book signings, and informal gatherings (restaurants, airports, bookstores, wherever!), as well as in online groups (including Facebook’s “The Rescue Me Series Open Discussion” secret group—to join, send a friend request to Karla Montague (https://www.facebook.com/karla.montague.1) on Facebook. For kinkier conversation, Kally also invites you to Fetlife’s “Rescue Me! Series Discussion Group.” She also does live online chats. She hopes to meet you in her future travels! If you meet her face to face, be sure to ask for a Kally’s friend button!

I’m on book two of the series and have been so touched by these characters I love them all. I take every minute free I have to read them as I can’t get enough. I’ve had these books downloaded for awhile and could kick myself for not getting to them sooner. Kallypso is an awesome writer and is now on my list of favorites authors. Thanks for giving us these wonderful people to care about and fall for.
