    4 Strange Angels Stars A Million Miles Away Angel Interceptors 1 is the debut book of Elizabeth Corva and I must applaud her since this book took me by surprised on how much I was consumed with Jonathan and Jasmine s story I must warn readers there is a cliffhanger and no HEA What I think makes this book stands out from other rocker books is that Ms Corva took time in developing the storyline between Jonathan and Jasmine She did not rush into a typical storyline of a lead singer fall 4 Strange Angels Stars A Million Miles Away Angel Interceptors 1 is the debut book of Elizabeth Corva and I must applaud her since this book took me by surprised on how much I was consumed with Jonathan and Jasmine s story I must warn readers there is a cliffhanger and no HEA What I think makes this book stands out from other rocker books is that Ms Corva took time in developing the storyline between Jonathan and Jasmine She did not rush into a typical storyline of a lead singer falling in love with his die hard fangirl, Jasmine What Ms Corva did was something else She allowed readers to feel and get a perspective of what a naive shy teenage girl is thinking when it comes to love and crushes As an added bonus, the way Ms Corva described a rockstar lifestyle is as close to real that I would think it would be whether it be from drugs, strippers, groupies, sex, alcohol, money, love and jealousy.Posters plastered on the bedroom walls, every album and music articles written collected, and of course every song lyrics memorized. oh yeah, a poster of your favorite celebrity crush hanging above your headboard sounds familiar right Well any die hard fangirl can relate when it comes to their favorite musician or band You probably knew every tidbit ranging from their favorite food, birthday, and hobbies memorized As with any teenage girl can relate to, when you have a crush on your favorite celebrity, you would dream and fantasize meeting them Probably you even imagined him being your boyfriend Well that was the case for Jasmine Ashcroft when she meets her favorite band, Strange Angels and of course her favorite member, Jonathan Kit Fox When dreams become reality, when friendship crosses the line of possible romance, and when age and maturity levels are a major factor, blurred lines are crossed As with life, sometimes there comes a point when one realizes enough is enough and its best to walk away and to let the music fade out Jasmine Ashcroft, is 17 years old and loves music especially when it involves her favorite band Strange Angels As a die hard fan, she has collected everything her teenage hands can get on As with any crushes, she loves the lead singer, Jonathan Kit Fox He is her ultimate crush and dream man As a graduation gift from her step father, Nate, she got tickets to see their concert As luck would have it, Nate s employee, Marianne, will be accompanying Jasmine to the concert With Marianne s connection to the band, Jasmine was able to score backstage passes When Marianne was preoccupied with one of the other band members, a shy innocent Jasmine is shell shock when she finds herself alone in a room with Jonathan Call it fate, luck destiny or whatever, Jonathan,27, seeks out a friendship with Jasmine and eventually hires her as his personal assistant Although Jasmine is shy, naive, and innocent there was something that drew and attracted him to her They found friendship and bonded over their love of music Though they never crossed any romantic lines, Ms Corva will have you rooting and wanting them to get together I know many readers are turned off by the age difference but personally it really didn t bother So readers who feel Jonathan was too old to pursue her, don t worry, he didn t As much as you wanted Jonathan to see and take notice of Jasmine, I thought it wasn t right at the moment since Jasmine had a lot of growing up to do.What can I say about Jonathan without causing me to fangirl as well. I absolutely adored him He was the perfect balance of sweet, charming, and of course a little alpha male There were times I wanted him to pursue Jasmine but at the same time, I respected his decision that it wasn t right I truly felt that he cared deeply for Jasmine and walking away was the best thing for both them Overall, I really enjoyed reading A Million Miles Away It was a perfect tale of a young woman discovering who she is with a glimpse of rockstar life thrown into the mix Although the ending will break and twist your heart, I know its not the end for Jonathan and Jasmine If luck and fate worked its magic for these two to meet, then I truly believe their fates are meant to cross again in the future Jasmine and Jonathan are one of those couple who are meant to be together, and eventually they will find their way backReview on Behalf of Give Me Books Blog Elizabeth Corva

    My first thought after finishing A Million Miles Away was what a debut This book is the first in the Angel Interceptors Series by Elizabeth Corva and I just devoured it After reading the blur, I was super excited to get started on this one, and it definitely did not disappoint Books that incorporate music are some of my favorites, and this one was done wonderfully This book grabbed my attention from the very first page and I couldn t put it down I had a feeling I would like it, but I was su My first thought after finishing A Million Miles Away was what a debut This book is the first in the Angel Interceptors Series by Elizabeth Corva and I just devoured it After reading the blur, I was super excited to get started on this one, and it definitely did not disappoint Books that incorporate music are some of my favorites, and this one was done wonderfully This book grabbed my attention from the very first page and I couldn t put it down I had a feeling I would like it, but I was surprised at just how much I loved it in the end.Jasmine had a pretty tough childhood Her mother passed away when she was only 13 and she turned to music for an escape, something a lot of us can probably relate to She had a particularly strong connection with the band Strange Angels, specifically with the lead singer, Jonathan She turned to him and his music during difficult times, and was able to find the strength and escape she needed through their songs When we jump to 4 years later, She is still a huge fan She s living with her over protective step father, and she spends her free time daydreaming, as most teenagers do, of her forever celebrity crush At first glance, this might seem like a typical celebrity meets girl next door romance, but it s muchthan that There s no whirlwind romance or insta love here, it s all very slow developing and I enjoyed that immensely.There were a few things about Jasmine that bothered me One being the fact that she s supposed to be extremely put together and mature for her age, yet she comes over completely na ve at times One example being that she doesn t even know her social security number what She s in college I m pretty sure I had mine memorized before I hit middle school That, to me, seemed unrealistic But this is just one small example Her relationship with her step father was frustrating at times as well It s understandable that he would be extra protective, after having lost his wife, her mother, already, but to do things such as snapping at her about meeting her new employer whether he agrees with his lifestyle or not was a bit absurd She s an adult at this point in the story what parent questions their adult child s employer Other times, though, I really enjoyed their relationship Yes, he was extremely overbearing, but he gave her his support when it mattered, and he did always have her best interests at heart So I guess I ll forgive him.Overall, as I said, I really loved this story It does have a pretty big cliffhanger, so make sure you have book two on hand straight away It wasn t quite what I expected going in, but I was very pleasantly surprised I couldn t put it down, the writing flowed nicely, and I found myself wrapped up in Jasmine and Jon s story I would have loved to see a bitromance, but I also loved that things weren t rushed The romance junkie in me had her fingers crossed that we would getswoon worthy moments in the sequel I definitely recommend this one
