Gr’s Summary 

Decades after being banished from Heaven for saving a life he shouldn’t have, Lash is given a chance to redeem himself. His mission: protect Naomi Duran, a young woman who has lost her faith. The assignment proves to be anything but simple when his superiors, the Archangels, withhold key information about Naomi and refuse to restore Lash’s powers. When an unexpected source reveals centuries-old secrets, his trust is shaken to the core, and he begins to doubt those whom he had once considered to be his greatest allies. 

Determined to avoid anything that would risk his chances of returning to Heaven, Lash struggles with the greatest obstacle of all—his growing feelings for Naomi. But when her life is threatened by an unknown source, Lash questions the wisdom of the Archangels and his ability to keep her safe. 

Soon, Lash will have to choose where to place his faith—in the home he has fought so hard to regain or in the forbidden love he can’t bear to lose. 

The Way I See It 

Archangels, Guardian Angels, and Bears, OH MY!  I LOVED LASH!!  I already knew I was going to like it cause...Y’all know how much I LOVE Angels!!  What I didn’t know was that I would LOVE LASH!  There is a lot of mystery and twists and turns...Lash kept me guessing, and the answers I received flew me to the moon!  Ms. Castillo knows how to paint a picture with words, it was an awesome experience.

L-ucifer, has a plan he will deceive and manipulate to achieve his dark goal.  He has gained so much strength by corrupting souls.  It's going to take an army, and courage to defeat this evil power.

A-ttraction, so sudden and so strange, both were drawn to each other inexplicably.  A past has a way of impacting, and finding its way to the present.

S-hrouded, truths will reveal themselves, boundaries will be crossed, fists will fly, and two worlds will collide.  When the dust settles, what was once broken can begin to heal.

H-EA, does not come with out pain.  There are many sacrifices and so much loss and heartbreak.  It will take all of their love and faith to defeat what's to come.

One of the many things I enjoyed about Lash was Naomi’s wonderful grandmother, and the amazing family dynamic they shared. There are some questions left unanswered, and I’m dying to know and read more! Definitely going to follow Ms. Castillo’s work.  I’m a huge fan of these colorful characters, and want to get to know them better.  For an Angelic NA Paranormal read with a twist I recommend Lash!!

My Fav’s 

He is a good guy with a rebellious side, and he's crazy sexy!!  So swoony, I love his personality, and the way he loves his family.  I’m looking forward to reading future interactions he has with his “family."   Will the events that transpire during Ms. Castillo’s story “change” the way he views and treats them, in the book to come?  I have to say this and it’s going to sound a little cryptic, but you know I’m very hush hush when it comes to spoilers...I don’ t blame Lash for any of his mistakes...I support him 100%

We all know she is special, and beautiful seeing her lively interactions with her family we understand why.  She has a beautiful soul that bears a lot of pain, yet she glows from within gracing everyone she touches.  She is smart, fun, funny, hardworking, and generally all around awesome!  No brainer, why she’s on my Fav’s!
