Review/Giveaway: Angel’s Dawn by Komali Da Silva
Posted by brriske
Dawn Huntington wants what every girl wants, a sweet sixteen birthday party with her friends, family, and some hot boys, but fate has other plans. On the night of Dawn’s sixteenth birthday, she witnesses a crime she can’t turn her back on, and the decisions she makes that night will change her life forever.
Never having been confronted with such violence, Dawn turns to a mysterious and beautiful boy named Angelo, only she can’t remember what happens that night. To make things more complicated, Dawn is in a relationship with Angelo’s complete opposite, Nate. Dawn doesn’t want to hurt Nate, yet she can’t shake her feelings for Angelo, even when she can’t help but feel he’s hiding something from her, and it could be something dark. Why is Angelo acting so weird around Bonita? Are they together? Are they really only friends?
Angelo may be trouble, but Dawn can’t ignore her feelings for him. Dawn is at a crossroads. Should she choose love? Or friendship? Once Dawn finally finds the courage to choose, she thinks the drama is over. But Dawn wasn’t expecting her choices to have such dire consequences.
Do you believe in love at first sight? But can one trust someone blindly? Can love overcome all the obstacles?
Is friendship just the beginning of love?
“Don’t cry, honey. Everything will be all right. You’re safe now,” Mom said to me and kissed my forehead. She was stronger than I thought because she was doing a good job of keeping herself calm. Dad, on the other hand, was showing his emotions. Tears were pouring down his face when he took my right hand in both of his.
Dad and I don’t do much talking, but we unfailingly understand what’s going on with each other and he instinctively feels it when I require his opinion. Yes, yes, you could call me a Daddy’s girl, and I wouldn’t deny it.
“Dad, please don’t cry. I’m alright. Mom, where’s Nate? I want to see him,” I whispered.
I was gifted this book by the author Komali Da Silva and Paranormal Romance and Authors that Rock fir my honest review.
Angels Dawn appears to be your typical teenage love triangle. Dawn, the high school cheerleader, dating Nate, the high school basketball player. They’ve been best friends since they were kids and had recently begun dating. She didn’t have romantic feelings for Nate. However, he was in love with Dawn and had been for awhile. Enter Angelo. Sparks fly between Angelo and Dawn. But Angelo is hiding something. A family secret.
I enjoyed this entire book. I was hooked from page one. This was a well written story. It kept me guessing as to what will happen next thrown in with a bit of ‘oh huh uh!’ I loved that even though this was another love triangle story it didn’t have the usual brainless, helpless female who didn’t even know she was pretty kind of cluelessness. Dawn was strong abs grounded with good friends and family. I can’t say I have a favorite character as I liked most of them.
There were a few typos but not bad enough to distract from the books awesomeness!! There was however a change in one if the characters that wasn’t addressed in this book but hopefully will in the next one.
The ending definitely left off on a cliff hanger. So it appears it will be a series. I personally cannot wait for the next book.
If I could give this book more than five fangs I would. So for now I give it a 5!
Angels Dawn could be read by young adults or older. I would definitely be recommending this book to friends. Fabulous job!!
