review || ANGEL'S HALO : RECLAIMED { release blitz } by Terri Anne Browning

Anna Henson | January 12, 2016 | Contemporary Romance
Angel's Halo MC, book 4


Felicity Bolton finally feels like she has moved on with her life. She misses her friends and family back in Creswell Springs, but now she has new friends—a new family. She has found the peace that she lost the night she lost her unborn child. She would do anything to protect her newfound family, even if that meant facing the devil himself. 

The minute Jet Hannigan walks back into her life that’s exactly what she has to do. 

Jet Hannigan is officially a free man. With his parole lifted he can finally do what he's been aching to do, go after the only woman who will ever own his heart. He's known where she is for months and has been impatiently waiting for the day he could reclaim her. What he wasn't excepting was to have to pull out the big guns and blackmail her into returning to Creswell Springs with him. With everything going on with Flick's boss, and the media circus surrounding the chaos, Jet thought the safest place for her was home where he and his brothers could protect her.

Instead he brings her home to a war zone.

Finally, Jet and Felicia...

While I read most of this series for more Raven and Bash (book one stopped on a little bit of a cliff where their story was involved, and their story was continued to be told through the series -- makes sense as the big rule of this MC is "No one touches Raven" and the one person who did, was 'punished', and eventually still won her over, was Bash), it was also Felicia's leaving that had me reading scouring through the next books. Flick and Jet's story was one that was built up and up and up throughout the series, until finally their HEA was told in this book, ANGEL'S HALO: RECLAIMED.

So while I felt that all of the books held the same character development and plot line, the writing was extremely consistent... this one is getting the 5-star because it wrapped up a line that started at the beginning, and tied up some other lines in the process (not all the Hannigans are doubled up though...).

Putting Jet and Flick aside for a moment... I definitely felt that Hawk shined in this story. His protectiveness and big-brother-ness for Raven and Flick was great -- even when he battled that with Flick. But it was his relationship with Gracie, and the line with Gracie in this book that definitely stood out the most for me. If you didn't fully care for Hawk before, this book will definitely do it for you.

Jet and Flick certainly had a lot of past and trust to work out, but their story was definitely one worth waiting for. However, thinking back on the book, I did feel that a lot of the story was them apart. We get a lot of the other storylines and Felicity with her "rocker family", but I wish we had a little bit more with her and Jet. And then there's the big moment in their past that essentially broke them the first time around -- while it's talked about, I wish everything went into more depth. As it was, it almost felt like an oversight, or something that wasn't meant to hold a ton of importance.

Now I just have to know... does Colt (& Kelli? Or maybe there'll be a plot twist and it'll be Quinn......??) get a story? What about Raider? I hope we learn sooner than later.

I absolutely loved Raven and Bash's story. Raven was the daughter of Angel's Halo MC's now-deceased president, but with her older brothers around, she's still the club princess -- not that she acts entitled. I found her to be extremely down to earth for her life style. Was she rough around the edges? Sure, but that was the way she'd grown up. She didn't take anything from anyone -- and she wasn't afraid to punch the person out who dared to call her something she was not. The club had one major rule, and that was that no one was to touch Raven -- Bash dared to, and he certainly paid the price for that. But he left, and in doing so, left Raven behind. Now he's back to take the interim president position... 

And Raven can't quite keep away.

I loved these two. This was a sweet-ish second chance romance with side stories from other Hannigan family members and their friends. I enjoyed getting to know everyone and while I do prefer minimal view point changes, I felt that it worked well in this (and the subsequent) book(s).

Next up? Willa and Spider! This one wasn't my favorite of the bunch, but it wasn't necessarily lacking -- Willa just was a bit this or that for me. I enjoyed her friendship with Bash and the semi-feud, if you will, between her and Raven was just... It simply felt a bit young at times (the disagreement) -- but then again, there were multiple times throughout the series that Raven acted extremely young.

So yes, I was reading mainly for Bash and Raven insights, but I was pleasantly surprised at the way Spider took over the pages. I enjoyed reading about their past (the book starts 'four years ago') and watching them jump the hurdles, allowing them to be together now. Their pasts, as well as Willa's sister and of course the whole Willa-Bash-Raven non-thing, was a big driver of the story, but I felt it was set up well and was easy to get lost in.

Another Hannigan! This time we have Hawk with Gracie. Gracie has been a presence on the pages for a while, and her quiet nature was one that definitely paired well with Hawk. I enjoyed her from the moment we 'met'. As for Hawk? I love all these Hannigans, so that's just that. I love his protective nature -- loved it with his sister, really love it with Gracie. Because of her past and the reason she came to be around, he knows better than to treat her like a club sheep -- but more than that, he finds himself actually wanting her, and with that, wants to do the correct thing.

I truly loved Hawk. He may be my favorite Hannigan brother -- Jet's pretty up there, too, though. And let's be honest, we see some pretty sweet sides to Spider in this book, too (not that he's a Hannigan, but...).
