Celestrial Beginnings by Rebekah Daniels
Being a descendant of a fallen angel, nephilim Malachi Starkman, is all about his duty in protecting mankind and preventing Satan’s army from growing any further. He leads a squad of talented warriors on this quest to preserve humanity, but as leader, he feels every aspect is his responsibility. After centuries of fighting, he is starting to feel burned out, and wondering if this is his sole purpose on Earth.
Local teacher, Trinity Bradshaw, has been trying to move on from her turbulent past but it doesn’t seem to want to let her go. Therefore, when a deliciously handsome man with alluring eyes says he wants to help her, she cannot say no. So many obstacles stand between the two, but neither of them seem to be able to walk away from the other. Will they find common ground or will she just be a liability in his quest to destroy the one that has plagued him for years?
Review by Paulina Woods
Celestial Beginnings has many elements that I love; angels, demons and sex but when I first started reading; I almost gave up because it read like sunday school. I know that many books need to have a set up so I kept reading hoping it stopped, it did. Holy crap I went from sunday school to hot steamy sex. No break, no warning and no way to catch myself . I was confused. After that first shock I couldn't put the book down if my life depended on it. I loved how the characters played off of each other and the relationships were so real. Fights, laughs, insecurities, love, hate, etc.
Malachi has been fighting along side his squad to keep mankind safe for centuries. Constantly fighting the taint of evil he has also helped the people on his squad stay true. Trinity is a photography teacher who loves to teach her students her passion. When they meet it's an explosion of steam. Serious steam that had me fanning myself and blushing, good thing I was in my room alone.
The thing I couldn't understand was why some of the relationships didn't work like they should. Trinity loved her sister, lived next door and was always over, until they day she met Malachi in the flesh. After that her sister actually got sick, really sick and she didn't even realize it. Malachi has no forgiveness for a man he has known for centuries.
At the end of the book I had more questions than answers and they were mostly about Malachi and Trinity. I have mild hope for this series. I will be on the look out for the next one.
