The Girl (Guardians, #1)


 The Girl By Lola St. Vil
Kindle Edition, 218 pages
Published January 9th 2012 by Amazon Digital Services
After his death,
Marcus found the love of his life...

Unfortunately it's not his sexy, telekinetic angel girlfriend --- it's Emmy Baxter... a human.

Emmy - a bookish, witty student - is rescued by six teenaged angels with powers, called Guardians. They've been sent to elicit the secret from her before the demons can. Emmy later learns that her name is the only clue to locating a sought-after bridge that for centuries, Evil has plotted to destroy; this would in turn bring about the end of humanity.

Things get worse when Emmy falls madly in love with Marcus, the well-intentioned but obstinate leader of the Guardians. He eventually confesses that he is in love with her as well. Unfortunately, Marcus has been warned by his clairvoyant and omniscient guide that should he and Emmy get together, the mission will fail and humanity will perish.
My Splurge: Rating-1 star
Okay, um, uh, no.
So here's the thing to two main characters are cheaters. Both of them. Two-timers. They were the only characters in the book I hated. I liked the antagonists more than I liked them.
Emmy (main girl) has an immediate, utter and irreversible love for Marcus (main guy). She is obsessed but he has a girl friend so she try's (and fails miserably) at trying to stay away from him. Then she ends up kissing him. Oh my. I feel really bad for Marcus's girl friend. I understand her anger and everyone is ganging up against her. I mean come on! She's one one who's being cheated on and she STAYS FAITHFUL TO HIM!!!
Then, of course, Marcus go's to Emmy in her bedroom (not like that guys) and tells her that they should be together. Of course, like any sane girl, she asks if he'd break up with his girl friend. He says no, that he'll just date the two of them. At the same time.
She's all like 'okay. cool. totes. that fine.'
THEN near the end of the book Reese, who has apparently had a thing for her forever, confesses his love to her and they make out. She gives him an angel hickey (glowing hair) Marcus finds out and gets all jealous. omg, dude,....really? You have a freaking girlfriend, run back to her. BE FAITHFUL for crying out loud -_-
Then...Reese thinking that Emmy be faithful to him, saves her, and ends up dying for her. I wanted to kil - kick something.

So yeah. No idea why this got such good ratings.
