Blurb:

We all have that someone we can’t forget, the summer it all began, and the

sleepless nights wondering what went wrong.

For Gage Montgomery, that someone is Layla Baxter. When he was 18, he took one

look at the chocolate-haired bookworm with porcelain skin and knew his life would

never be the same. But it all came crashing down when Layla suddenly and

mysteriously disappeared from St. Simons Island -- leaving him with nothing but her

angel wing pendent around his neck. For 12 long years, Gage couldn’t shake what

happened, if he’s the one to blame, wondering where Layla might be. When their

paths finally cross, he’s determined to get the answers he’s spent his life searching

for -- and to get the girl, too. Quiet Angel is a story of hope, survival, and lost love

made new again.

“I missed you, too, but you were never far.” Gage touched his shirt with the wings

inside. “You were always there.”

My Quiet Angel Review...

After reading Perfectly Broken and loving it, I jumped at the chance to read this book.  After reading it I did like it , but at times I liked the idea of the story more than the actual story.

Layla Turner shows up out of the blue and changes Gage Montgomery at the age of 18 then changes it dramatically again 12 years later.  Layla blows in and the two young teens fall in love but there is so many things that Gage doesn't know about Layla.  After falling in love Gage is ready to change his future for his new love, but doesn't get the chance once Layla disappears in the middle of the night.


Now 12 years later fate as intervened and brought these two back together but pasts hurts are hard to get over and Layla's past is coming to the forefront of her life.  Knowing that Gage has lost Layla once he moves mountains to make sure that he doesn't lose her again.
"Sorry I'm early.  I couldn't wait.  12 years is long enough."
Loving and protecting is a fine line when you keep the truth for protection and doing the right thing.  One thing that Layla hates are secrets.  Once she left her heart to protect him but when he does the same thing back she doesn't like it, which causes her to want to run again when Gage keeps protecting her.

Their love story was sweet.  The message of the book was good.  The spiritual undertone complemented this story.  However, the thing that held me back was everything was to perfect, too clean cut even the bad and sad elements of the story, which left me wanting more from this story.  In the end I did like it but my connection with the book was more superficial then I normally like when I emotionally connect with a book. 

3 Sweet Thumbs up!
