Welcome to the world of the Angelheart Saga
Welcome to the website of YA author Annie Woods! This is the place to be if you’re looking for more information about the Angelheart Saga trilogy or about YA books in general.
This Friday I’m doing a shoutout for a perfect weekend-read, The Proposal and The Deed by Haley Rhoades. This is the first and second book in The Surrogate Series. These books are fun, fast and hot. Yes, hot! Definitely no YA books these ones...
The Proposal is such an enjoyable, fast and fun read! I read it cover to cover in one sitting basically.
Taylor, the main character, is such a lovable person. She’s definitely not flawless (a lot of booze and bad decisions…) but that makes her even more lovable. She’s fun, smart and bad-ass. Her background story is described so well that you can really relate to her struggle to find herself and build up her confidence again after getting out of an abusive relationship.
In the book we get to meet Taylor as she’s going for a reunion with her two best friends, the married couple Kennedy and Jackson. I loved Kennedy and Jackson never gave up on her and how supportive and protective they were of her.
One thing I totally adored in the book was the song references and the game “Song of the day”. So gonna start playing that game with my own family!
The Deed picks up right where The Proposal ends, with Taylor agreeing to be the surrogate mother of Kennedy’s and Jackson’s child.
In this book my heart reaches out to Taylor even more, I feel that she’s kind of letting her friends take advantage of her. I’m also getting a hunch that I might not like her friend Kennedy as much as I thought from the first book; I’m really eager to find out what will happen to their friendship in the next one!
This book started off a bit slower than The Proposal, and it is also longer, but the second half really took off with so much happening and intensity.
As for the hotness, there are some really sexually explicit scenes and talk in this book. Made me blush even though no one saw me reading it… For the next book, I wish for more scenes together with Mateo, Taylor’s new “friend”, though.
Now I’m eagerly awaiting the finale of this trilogy; so anxious to see what happens with the surrogate situation, how the friendship survives and what else Haley Rhoades has in store for the three of them!
