I give Sleeping Angel (Soul Connection Book 2) by Nikki Lynn Barrett, 4 stars.
I started this book thinking it seemed predictable and I knew what was going to happen. I could not have been more wrong! The story is so original, there is no way you will guess what is going on. I was so intrigued about the concepts in this book of souls and such. I cannot elaborate more without possibly giving things away, but I will say that I stopped and thought twice in some sections. The characters are great, too. All of them really grow throughout this book, not just the main ones. Plus you will see some from book one if you read it as well as a whole new cast of characters.
This book has romance, tragic grief, and the paranormal tossed in to the mix. It is a very powerful story that I could not put down. I believe it can be read as a standalone and I highly recommend it.
