Providence Review

Providence #1
by Jamie McGuire





What they say: Struggling with her father's death, Nina meets Jared Ryel, presumably by chance. However it soon becomes clear that he knows more about her than even close friends. When her father's former associates begin following her in the dark, Nina learns that her father was not the man she thought he was, but a thief who stole from demons. In searching for the truth behind her father's death, she stumbles upon something she never expected, and something Hell wants, that only she holds the key for. Jared risks everything to keep the women he was born to save, by sharing the secret he was sworn to protect.

What I say: For some unknown reason I thought Providence was about zombies, but I clearly got the wrong book, because it really isn't. The lack of zombies aside, Providence is an interesting read, but not necessarily one of my fav's. I think this is because I didn't really find myself engaging with the characters. But I did like Providence, I just didn't love it.

Jamie McGuire writes great male leads. Alpha's are SO her thing, but I didn't really like Jared all that much. He took his stalker tendencies too far for me and I couldn't get past some of his mistruths or lies. It's not all bad thought because I did like how supportive he was of Nina and their romance was kinda sweet (when I got past the Bella and Edward-like parts).


I wasn't always sure of Nina, but once the plot began to develop I found myself warming towards her. I felt her annoyance at all the lies almost everybody seemed to tell her. 

Even though I wasn't the biggest fan of the first section of the book, I am intrigued by what happens next and I do like Jamie McGuire's writing style. It sort of pains me that I didn't love this one.



3 - 3.5 Stars in my Sky!
