Angel after Dark by Kahlen Aymes ~ Blog Tour and Giveaway

**Angel After Dark Blurb

Dr. Angeline Hemming is a beautiful, sassy, no-nonsense type of girl who has risen from a 

difficult past to become one of Chicago’s most successful and respected criminal profilers. In 

exchange for free commercials to promote her favorite charitable causes, Angel answers calls 

and gives relationship advice on a Friday night radio program.

Alexander Avery is a gorgeous and successful corporate genius who doesn’t believe in love. 

When his girlfriend-of-convenience calls into Angel’s program, he is furious with the show’s 

host who doles out (what he considers) blind advice, without knowing all the facts… and he 

decides to give her a piece of his mind, and his side of the story!

When Angel informs Alex he’s the one in need of a much-deserved lesson, all hell breaks 

loose as these two type-A personalities battle it out for control over minds and hearts, and 

yes, in bed. Not only are they fighting each other at every turn, but they are also struggling to 

uphold the convictions they each live by.

It’s unclear who is stronger, but both must discover that to get what they desperately want, 

they may have to give a little… or a lot.


I wasn't really sure what to expect going into Angel After Dark, this was my first read by Kahlen Aymes, but I really enjoyed this one.  I loved the banter and chemistry between the two main characters and I also loved the secondary characters.  My only issue, and it's my own personal issue has nothing to do with Kathlen's writing style (which was flawless) or the story, is that it just ENDED.  Obviously, I should have checked to see if there would be more books, and the story did end with a HFN, I just don't know how many several book series I can invest myself in. It would have been nice to see Angel and Alex's story wrap up and then possibly a spin-off of one of the secondary characters.  Regardless, I gave Angel After Dark 4 Sexy, Sizzling Stars!

“At best, love is overrated. It’s a pipe-dream pumped into little girls’ minds by Disney movies and fairy tales.”

In Angel After Dark we meet our two main characters, Dr. Angeline Hemming and Alexander Avery, both of these two characters are alot alike in a way, being that they only used sex in the past to scratch an itch, so to speak.  They always been monogamous to their sexual partner at the time, but it was never about a relationship or happily ever after, it was all about fulfilling needs.  When Angel and Alex cross paths by chance in a hardware store there is an instant chemistry, but they never get the chance to act on it.  Months later when their paths cross again, fireworks explode.  Angel thinks Alex is arrogant and conceited, and Alex just can't believe the advice Angel is dishing out on her late night radio show (to his significant other at that), that his best-friend just happens to run.  So when Alex's friend sets up this blind meeting, the sparks really fly! What happens when two people with very independent personalities and relationship issues collide? Can two people with control issues relent to each other and find true happiness?

"I don't want you to lose yourself, honey.  I'm trying to find you.  To keep you with me."

Like I mentioned above this is my first book by Kahlen and it won't be my last.  Angel After Dark was sexy, mysterious, and intense......I would definite recommend it and now that I'm invested, of course I have to read the next book.  Hoping to see more of a true love story develop between Angel and Alex.

  1. The series is 3 books of Alex and Angel's story and spin offs would be their own series. (The second book is finished and in editing. It won't be very long... and you know at the end of book 1 where they stand with each other...) The start of the next chapter (book 2) begins something that could not be told in a chapter or two and so this seemed the logical place to break it. It does say on Amazon it's a series....) Thank you for your review and nice comments. xo
