His only mission now is to stay alive and make it home to Angel, if he can find an ally among the enemy.

Angel’s Hero by Liz Borino had the potential to be a suspenseful tale filled with love and drama, but unfortunately it fell short of the mark. Angel and Jordan were a happily married couple who also worked for the military. Angel was a CIA agent and Jordan was an Army Captain. While on a mission in Afghanistan, Jordan was captured and killed; at least that’s the news that was delivered to Angel.

The story became convoluted, at times confusing and hard to follow.  Angel’s Hero jumped from POW rescue mission, to Jordan’s capture to Angel’s attempt at discovering the truth behind the capture and reputed death.

Insinuating himself in Angel’s life was General Troy Hart. Presuming to be a friend and assist him in finding Jordan, Hart wanted to be invaluable. Nefarious motives, Hart was up to no good. It bothered me that I felt Angel falling for his charm while professing to be in love with his husband, especially since he never bought the story he was dead.

I enjoyed the characters of Angel and Jordan, sweet romance and flirtatious, but I would have liked more complexity in their story and portrayal. At times I found the writing too simplistic, lacking depth.

A cliffhanger ending that will hopefully be answered in Angel’s Truth.
