Sitting there in the car, a part of me bitterly resented what she was doing to me. I knew it wasn’t her fault. But does she have to be so… alluring? I need to focus on something else besides the spot between her earlobe and neck. It looked so soft. Her lips were slightly parted as she looked out the window. I wanted to part them further with mine. I put both my hands on the steering wheel. I could not allow myself to let go until she was ou

    A Real Review of “The Girl”, July 27, 2012
    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: Guardians: The Girl (The Guardians Series, Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
    I purchased this book for my kindle and thought I was getting a great read. At first glance the quick summary offers the reader a glimpse into Lola’s world of Angels and how they are supposed to help save the world with the help of their “clue”, Emerson Baxter. (Emmy for short) When I first started reading I did not enjoy or like the way the author wrote but that was purely personal preference so I did NOT hold that against her and kept reading. As I continued reading Lola’s theory’s and ideas behind her Angels and her “Guardians”, I enjoyed it immensely, however as I continued I realized her main character is the girl in school that you almost feel sorry for and then realize she is a back stabbing bit%$. She’s a 15 year old girl who spent half the book complaining and crying and you just wanted to tell her yourself to grow the F@#% up. In addition to that she immediately fell in love with the main Angel Marcus, (still nothing crazy here) but Marcus completely ignored her and did not come across as feeling the same way until you read his version of the story (which was about 40% of the way through the book) and he just immediately falls in love with her at first glance, just like that. Eventually he tells her he loves her but he can’t be with her because he already has a girlfriend, I get the emotions the Author was trying to get across but trust me it does NOT work, you end up feeling sorry for the girlfriend (who starts to get portrayed as a “bad” person/Angel) and you get mad at Emmy for being that girl who steals away boyfriends. Not only that but the book is about how Emmy is supposed to save the world and throughout most of the book it’s her crying, UM HELLO BIGGER PICTURE HERE!!! Millions of lives are at stake, over oh the guy I like doesn’t want to be with me let me cry for the next century. Sometimes she’s wises up and she says “Ok I’m going to be an adult and realize I’m the key to saving the world and try not to screw everything up” and then she goes oh wait I’m in love with this Angel who I know has a girlfriend but I’m a home wrecker and ruins the entire thing AGAIN. Not only that but the Author tries to give Emmy a love interest and just when things start getting slightly more serious, she kills him off so as not to deal with the inevitable fight that would/should have happened.
    I ended up hating the main character and wishing Marcus would wise up and just stay with his Girlfriend.
    I haven’t completed the book yet, I am 80% of the way through it and trust me just finishing it is going to be hard enough. I liked all of the Authors ideas on her Angels and Guardians but her writing did not do it justice. Right now I HATE the book and do not see myself enjoying it any more than I’ve already tried. The Main Characters are horrible and I ended up Hating them and what would have been a lovely story of Angels Saving the World.
    I can’t tell if I’m biased or not and I have also read the reviews about other readers raving about the book, which I don’t know how they could when you put it up against a series such as Patricia Briggs or even Eileen Wilks. Even if you don’t compare other series to this one, it’s not worth purchasing it or reading it when there are so many other books out there with the same idea in mind and you wont end up hating the characters.

    This review is from: Guardians: The Girl (The Guardians Series, Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
    When I downloaded this book to my Kindle I was expecting a girl who was unsure but would step up and be ready to save the world. What I got was a girl who cried for more than half the book and it was mostly because she was in love with someone else’s boyfriend. At the beginning I was slightly irritated with Emmy more due to the fact that she was like “I’m a loser and I’ll be this way for all my life and poor pitiful me.” That is the impression I received from her so I really wanted her to be the kind of character to shake it off and be a badass chick. That happened maybe three times when she would stand up for something other than her nonexistent relationship with Marcus. This was from her POV the first 40% of the book or so.
    I will definitely admit to enjoying her version and explanation of Heaven and Hell. It was unique and intriguing along with all the rules that went along with it. However this and the Save the World mission seemed unimportant because Emmy was constantly focused on Marcus. Love at first sight and obsession followed soon after. This is when I started to like her character even less than I did to begin with. They are all supposed to find this map and the thing that everyone is focused on is her and Marcus. He has a girlfriend who is a warrior-esque Guardian and that seems to just not filter into her brain for reasons unknown. Not only that but Marcus is a character that is unlikable at the very beginning and through to the end. We get to see from his POV and he’s just as stupid as she is.
    I love you ever since I first saw you, but I made a promise to be with my girlfriend. So I still love you but I can’t be with you; although I will gaze at you from afar and act like a jealous boyfriend. The author also makes Ameana seem like the “angel” of the group. She wasn’t the most pleasant Guardian to be around but she made her seem like a major bitch which understandable seeing as how this girl she’s supposed to protect is trying to steal her boyfriend. Also when Emmy seems to be getting over Marcus and there is another love interest involved she kills off the character. That would have been a good adventure and we readers could stop seeing her cry and whine over Marcus in almost every single page. I will say that there WERE times when Emmy would stand up for something and be total badass; however it mostly happened when it came to her feelings with Marcus. This was also a fast paced book. So fast that after she received her injuries we don’t know what happened or if they healed. Like when she got punched and her eye was swollen shut, how in the hell did she hide this from her mother? Unexplained.
    Basically this book was made to seem interesting and I don’t understand all the five star reviews because it wasn’t good. A whiny selfish lead character who is supposed to help save the world although all her focus is on a guy she loves within the first second of seeing him. Said guy is a manipulative unfocused indecisive ass who says one thing and means another; while lying to his team and withholding information. This book was 20% save the world the other 80% a book about a mopey girl with issues who has more important things to worry about than finding the map. I finished it and I didn’t enjoy it all, I thought it would get better but no good came of it. If you buy this book instead of getting it for free like I did good luck to you; and don’t forget that you can get a refund within a week I believe.

    Marcus you dolt! Get your Rah back!! (Loved this book), May 1, 2012
    This review is from: Guardians: The Girl (The Guardians Series, Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
    So I’ve been having an Angel detox for 3 months. I’ve read so many in the last year that I couldn’t stomach much more God vs. Satan, Fallen Angels, White Angels, Good versus Evil Etc. I started one more, a traditionally published popular one at that, and I couldn’t take it. Same old, same old. I had to put it away and start another paranormal genre.

    So when I started Guardians I had middling expectations. However, what I read, even in the first few pages was the biggest shocking wow I’ve experienced in a long while. Guardians is an amazing read!

    The story is complete in the following ways. There are great fun characters. There’s a hormonally emotional teen girl at the centre. The gimmicks of snaps, ports, samson string, holders, and runners are well planned. The lore and dictionary of angel terms is so different and new to anything I’ve ever read. The dialogue is quick-witted and unique and the romance isn’t anything I expected at all. This is a book that has been thoroughly planned, right down to the tiny intricate details and my hat goes off to Lola for it, she’s written something exceptional.

    At the end of Part 1, I absolutely felt my heart go out to Emmy. She’s 15 and so obsessively in love. We all remember what that was like, right? I remember being completely nuts about a guy and I cycled for 2 miles to go past his house every night just to see if he was in! Hmm! Anyway!

    Emmy can never have what she wants. And there’s the twist. She doesn’t get it entirely and her life becomes unbearable. The pure emotions that pour out of this girl are heart breaking and nothing can change what has happened. In addition, she’s not only responsible for saving the world but a possible conduit to ending it also. Pressure!

    At the end of Part 2, I wanted to wring the Guardian leader Marcus’ neck for being such a dolt! Get your Rah back, I was shouting! Then you realise that his life isn’t easy either. The others in his group are turning against him and the dangers and enemies are doubling, tripling around him, Emmy, and the Guardians to such intensity that…

    Part Three just didn’t stop. I literally turned page after page barely breathing. The action was electric and so fast paced it changed into a thriller at break-neck speed.

    Lola, I really hope you can write the second book quickly because I feel like I’m standing in mid-air wondering what’s going to happen next. Will the Guardians prevail? Will the evil turn on her Mum? Will they …? Won’t they…? Argh!!! See what I mean!

    Guardians: The Girl astounded me. There’s no comparison to anything I’ve read about angels before and if you like angel books such as Hush, Hush, Fallen or Halo then … two words. READ IT!
