Angel by C.A. Bell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
::..Reviewed for Red's Midnight Readers..::
I was kindly provided with an ARC in exchange for an honest review. I have given it 5 stars.
I am a big fan of C.A. Bell and will pretty much read everything she puts in front of me and this was no exception. The blurb was incredibly intriguing and I couldn't wait to dive in.
We meet Angel, a whore at Chateau Rouge but she is tired or being used and wants out, however she is the property of Papa and he won't let her go without a fight.
Cue Felix, an artist from England who might just be her saviour.
Whilst I was reading Angel I was getting a Titanic meets the Moulin Rouge kind of vibe and I couldn't shake this sense of deja vu but I did find the story rather quite interesting. I couldn't put it down as things unraveled .
I was expecting something a little.... darker but I think that is because there is deviant in me that would have preferred darker elements to this story.
My heart broke for poor Angel, trapped in a life of being used and abused by anyone willing to pay for the privilege, so when we were introduced to Felix I hoped he would help free her from this life of misery and debauchery. Watching her grow from a weak character to someone who finally stood up for herself was great to read and I was right there with her, rooting for her.
It was a gripping, well written great read that you should definitely one click it.
What lies behind the door to Chateau Rouge is all that Angel knows – sex, drugs, abuse, and treachery. But when Felix, an artist from England, enters into her tiny world, he opens her eyes to what life could really be, and now, Angel wants out. There’s just one problem. There’s no way on earth the owner, Grand Papa, will ever let her leave Chateau Rouge. She is his. His possession. His whore. His Angel.
Angel has a choice to make. Does she finally stand up to the man who has taken so much from her? Or does she give up true love through fear of what lies outside the walls of Chateau Rouge – freedom.
