Review: Saving Angel by J.I. Weil

Saving Angel by J.I. Weil 
A Divisa Series
Book 1

I couldn’t help but wonder what my life would be like if we had never moved to the ho-dunk town of Spring Valley, Illinois. Sure the internet service is splotchy, there is nothing but miles of wheat fields, and I probably wouldn’t be faced with death at every corner.

My only neighbor in this god forsaken town is…well, there really is only one to describe him—hot as hell. With his sinful dark looks, unusually silver eyes, and kissable lips, there is something about him that is more than meets the eye.

Of course I am determined to find out.

Chase Winters might be drool-worthy, but he is also insufferable, arrogant and…in short a d-bag. Our relationship is anything but love at first sight. Not even close. There is something weird about the family living next door.

What I hadn’t expected to find is an underworld of trouble.

Chase and his cousins Lexi and Travis are Divisa—half-demon, half-human. Getting them angry is hardly in my best interest, not if I want to live.

As it turns out, that might be the least of my problems. I’ve been tagged by Hell.

Now every ugly, nasty being from hades is on my trail. I have suddenly became a magnet for demon disaster, and the only way I am getting out of this alive is by putting my life in the demon spawn’s hands.

One wrong decision and my butt is toast.


Saving Angel started off pretty well. You meet Angel who has moved away from Tuscan to live with her mother after her father has been sent to jail. And then of course there is the mysterious boy who lives next door and his friendly cousin who only wants a friend. Angel has dealt with a lot of crap throughout her life and the fact that she lives next to spawns of evil just makes it even worse.

I loved Angel with her spunk and no crap attitude, how she didn't throw pity parties for herself or the ironic meaning behind her name. After reading further and learning the paranormal feature behind the series, I look back and laugh at when Angel and Chase first met. Little did she know that Chase was a half-demon and that her "pure" name was hysterical. The best part was how she responded to his reaction. 

Chase is a snarky alpha male who wants nothing to do with Angel. He pushes her away, yet he can't keep away from her himself for "unknown" reasons. They are up and down in whether they are friends, more than friends, or nothing at all. It really throws you through a loop. Angel and Chase were either fighting of wanting to make out. This was really a love-hate relationship.

I really enjoyed this book and immediately bought the second book in the Divisa Series.

Rating: 5/5
