I was going between 2 and 3 stars, but 2 star, "It was okay", it is.

I enjoyed this more than I wanted to, but too many things irritated me. This book was free, also, on Amazon, so I don't feel as let down by it.

The Bad:
•Repetitive sentences. Sometimes in the same paragraph. It seemed Taylor (author) wanted to get across an idea, but forgot she said it the same way just 2 seconds ago. Happened often.
•"Oh, look! This thing just happened! How strange!!! I bet this isn't important, I will brush it off," thing. This is one of my peeves when reading. It's like the author thinks they're tricking us into a twist that we can't see coming...when in actuality it's like seeing the plot device in the distance on the 15 fwy from L.A. to Las Vegas.

The Good:
Overall story was fun. Angels are a different topic for me to read about so it hasn't been overdone yet for me.
•Liked Alex despite me hating when fictional men have "rippling abs" (oh, please) ;)
•Enjoyed some of the descriptive writing. ( )

Angels. When you hear word spoken a certain image comes to mind, does it not? White robes, flowing hair, glowing auras. All of these things are what I used to think of as well. Now? Well after reading Branded my image of angels is much different. Vengeful, cold and calculated angels pop into my head now. Ones with eyes like deep wells and fury in their hearts. Thank you Keary Taylor! Thank you. This is how I want my angels. It's refreshing to see that they are not as perfect as they seem to be.

To say that I loved Jessica as a character is a huge understatement. I didn't just love her, I felt like I was a part of her. It went far beyond our similar first names. No, what I loved about Jessica was much deeper than that. She was so strong-willed, so brave. Despite the nightmares that plague her restless sleep, Jessica was able to lead a mainly normal life. She even went so far as to shut herself off from the world. It was her ability to be so stoic that truly impressed me and drew me in.

As for the story itself, well it is of course amazing! The two men that enter Jessica's life are wholly different from one another and mirror the emotions warring within her. In an effort not to spoil this book for all of you, since I know I will convince you to go and read it, I won't go to far into Jessica's relationships. Suffice it to say that both men are completely delicious, and both have their strong points. The ending? Absolutely stunning. Again, I won't ruin it, but if you don't like the ending I'm not sure we can be friends.

I'm kidding. Mostly.

Final thoughts? Branded is a one of a kind novel that I will never forget reading! I recommend it to all those out there who might be a little skeptical of angels as characters. This will put a whole new spin on your image of them. A solid novel, Branded is sure to become one of your new favorites this year. ( )

Interesting. A different take on angels for sure and while I figured out one 'twist' pretty quickly, I didn't see the other 'twist' playing out the way it did. I thought the love between Alex and Jessica was off-like maybe it wasn't developed enough or something. I don't know, but I just didn't buy it. ( )

Interesting but predictable. ( )

Wow! I'd rate this six stars!

I loved this book! I couldn't get enough. I completely related to this character. The world I fell into was so simple, and yet so much was going on in Jessica's mind and so much was happening to her. I loved Alex. I enjoyed the relationship that Jessica had with her neighbor Sal. Everything was just so realistic. But there was the constant threat of danger. What would happen every time Jessica fell asleep. Anticipation made me what to keep reading. I never would have guessed at the ending. I loved it! Best angel story I've ever read.
My only wish, and if the author ever reads this review, is that the author do a bit sprucing up. Cut every adverb after said. And cut the overuse of the word despite and a few other redundancies. These little things didn't detract from the story, but an avid readers would find them tedious.
But still. Loved the story. I will attack all the author's works and devour them. ( )
