#BookReview :: Guardian Angel (Undercover Series #2) by Ruchi Singh

Check out the Book

My Review:

Security Officer Nikhil Mahajan was at the wrong place at the wrong time. When a bomb blast gives the miscreants the opportunity to abduct him, Nikhil is left at the mercy of a group of people who have no mercy.  Ayesha is given the duty of nursing a man back to health so that he can be tortured and interrogated. With Rehaan and Khala keeping a close eye on her, all the while planning her wedding, Ayesha has no choice but to nurse the stranger in her basement. What turns do their journeys take? And does fate have other plans for them?

At 130 odd pages, Guardian Angel is a quick read. Once I had the opportunity, I finished this book in one sitting. The book is more of an adventure than anything else. On one hand we have Nikhil, who is injured and captured. On the other hand, we have Ayesha who has a wedding coming up and the duty of caring for a complete stranger. The story concentrates on their adventure as they try to navigate the hand that they have been dealt. I like the fact that the author hasn’t tried to force a romance from the beginning. The first part of the story helps build the core of the characters that we are being told about. There’s action and drama that helps build up a reader’s interest in the book. Romance comes in second and entertains the readers further in a different way. For once, I did like the fact that the girl takes some initiative as well. The author has kept the romance light and sexy.

I loved the character of Ayesha. She is a girl who knows what she wants and ready to do what it takes to get what she wants. She is a character that I liked because of all that she represents – she is brave, smart and sexy. I wish that there was more action in the book that involved her. From all that we know about her in the book, it would have just been like a cherry on the cake if she had a bit more action part in the book. This is probably the only point where I can nitpick about the book.

Though this is the second book in the Undercover Series, this book can be read as a standalone. I have not read the first book, The Bodyguard, and though there are some mentions of characters from the first book, the author has provided enough information to satisfy the readers. In fact, she has gone ahead and made me feel so curious about one particular character that it makes me want to pick up The Bodyguard.

All in all, the book offers interesting characters, drama, action and romance – everything a romantic suspense should be.
