Review: Angel After Dark (After Dark #1) by Kahlen Aymes

Book one of the After Dark, Series

Dr. Angeline Hemming is a beautiful, sassy, no-nonsense type of girl who has risen from a difficult past to become one of Chicago’s most successful and respected criminal profilers. In exchange for free commercials to promote her favorite charitable causes, Angel answers calls and gives relationship advice on a Friday night radio program.

Alexander Avery is a gorgeous and successful corporate genius who doesn’t believe in love. When his girlfriend-of-convenience calls into Angel’s program, he is furious with the show’s host who doles out (what he considers) blind advice, without knowing all the facts… and he decides to give her a piece of his mind, and his side of the story!

When Angel informs Alex he’s the one in need of a much-deserved lesson, all hell breaks loose as these two type-A personalities battle it out for control over minds and hearts, and yes, in bed. Not only are they fighting each other at every turn, but they are also struggling to uphold the convictions they each live by.

It’s unclear who is stronger, but both must discover that to get what they desperately want, they may have to give a little… or a lot.

Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

What happens when two immovable forces meet each other? Run for your life and don’t get caught in between them! This is the first book in Kahlen Aymes, After Dark series.  It is the beginning of Angel and Alex’s story, a story of two dominating, controlling characters that find they are meant for each other.

Dr. Angeline Hemming is a determined female advocate that controls her life.  She is independent and self-sufficient and takes nothing from the males that want to be in her life.  She is also a beautiful, caring, loyal woman that will do anything for those she loves.  When she accidentally comes face to face with a beautiful man while shopping for paint the electricity is explosive between them but they don’t exchange a word, just looks.  Angel cannot believe the attraction she feels towards this mysterious man, a man that she will probably meet again. 

Alex cannot believe that he didn’t follow the beautiful woman out of the store and ask for her name and phone number.  She affected him in a way no other woman ever had and now she was gone.  When his best friend told him about a woman that was working for him at the radio station and told him how beautiful and smart she was, he thought he was exaggerating.  When his friend told him about how hot she was, Alex wanted nothing to do with it!  He didn’t believe him, until he heard her voice on the radio and listened to her explain and council the people that called in. Intrigued he wanted to meet this woman and would do whatever was necessary to get to know her. 

When the two meet Alex is blown away to discover that the beautiful woman he had met weeks ago was the beautiful woman standing in front of him.  Sparks fly and tempers blow, but the sexual tension overshadows everything.  Can Alex convince Angel that he is more than a playboy womanizer? Will Angel give him a chance?  Or will an evil destroy them, an evil they are unaware of?
