Betrayal ~ M.L. Guida

Betrayal by M.L. Guida
3.5 stars

This one was a new twist on the world of Angels. Check out the Blurb.

Scythe must save his brother's soul before the next full moon, Heather is determined to prove her sister's innocence, but to do this, they must trust each other. Heather Bowen, a drug and alcohol counselor, has always been able to see auras, but now she's being haunted in her sleep by a red-eyed man who's peddling a psychotic drug to her clients.After her sister becomes his next victim, Heather is determined to prove her sister's innocence. Life as she knows it becomes more unpredictable when the new counselor, Scythe Angel, arrives. It doesn't take Heather more than a first meeting to determine this larger than life man is commanding, pushy, determined and downright sexy. However there's something about him she's not sure she can trust, no matter how she finds herself drawn to him. Scythe knows he can clear Heather's sister's name, but to do it he must confront his elusive and dangerous brother who seems to be bound to the dark side. With his own wings on the line, Scythe has to discover a way to save his brother's soul before it's too late. An arduous task for Scythe becomes even more complicated by his unearthly attraction to Heather. For both of them to succeed they will have to learn to trust each other or fail; losing everything they hold dear.

My Take: Heather is an Aura reading substance abuse counselor. My guess is you don't wanna try to hide things from the counselor who can see beneath the surface. As far as her character goes I found her kind of up and down. Mostly she's strong willed and detemined but she does let some strange man order her around which I found to be a little odd. 
Scythe is an interesting character. The Angel who helps guide your soul to Heaven, Hell or purgatory. He feels conflicted because of his uncontrollable draw to Heather and his duty to save his brother. Personally I feel like his brother is past redemption seeing as he has killed innocent people and ruined the lives of their families. But I guess if he was my brother maybe I'd be unable to give up to.
Overall it was an interesting story. If your in to bad ass Angels this one is for you.
