Angles – Part 1 by Erin Lockwood **Review**




BLURB:

A compelling love story about Caralee, her best friend Teddy, and her new love interest, Sam. The intensity of Sam entering into Cara's life challenges her friendship with Teddy - which was forged long ago when they encountered a deranged gunman. Teddy will stop at nothing to protect Cara - even if it means keeping his long time business associate and once best friend far away from her.

This story is about friendship and relationship triangles, love and protection, love and understanding, and love vs true love

Review:
 Oh boy. The cover, not so good. The story, interesting, intriguing, and a situation I would hate to be in. This is a plot that you don't read about a lot. On one side, you have a best friend that is fighting for you; so you have the friendship you can depend on. One the other side, there's a third party and minds and hearts begin to crash and clash and rock the boat. However, there were a few twists that I didn't expect that kept me on my toes wondering how this story was going to end. I started out thinking I knew how this story was going to go from the synopsis but, this author really surprised me! This was a really good read that kept me guessing.

Excerpt:
By the time I get back to dancing with Dean, I feel something, someone, watching me. The feeling I felt before my speech is stronger now. There’s something consuming my surroundings—an invisible, sweltering blanket over me. As soon as I have the chance, I look around and try to find the source of this feeling—the burning eyes I can’t see, yet, but I sense are focused on me. The rising tensions as you watch the relationships progress

I casually scan the room between dips and twirls.

My breath catches. There they are—the eyes I’ve been searching for. A man, a gorgeous man, in a perfectly tailored suit is staring at me. It’s no mistake. Now that I see him, I know his eyes are the source of this feeling I’ve been having.

There are worse people to have stare at you. He might be a little older, but he’s very attractive. He wears his dark brown hair slicked and styled up and back. It looks soft enough to run my fingers through and short enough to create a little edge to it. His blackish gray suit blends in with his olive, tan skin. Every part of him is dark and smoky, except his eyes. His turquoise-blue eyes are so bright; they’re like headlights shining at me. A lighthouse warning me not to come too close or my boat will crash.  - Chapter 2


AUTHOR Bio and Links:

Erin Lockwood grew up in Castro Valley, California, and attended the University of Oregon where she graduated with a degree in journalism in 2003. From there, she moved to Denver, Colorado, and spent the next seven years searching for the love of her life and building the family of her dreams.

It wasn’t long until, with children starting preschool and more time on her hands, Erin refocused on her career, beginning with a successful entry into the world of residential real estate as a realtor. Free time was spent reading book after book—and binge-watching the subsequent films—in the New Adult genre. Hopelessly in love with her husband, she wrote him a short story for their fifth wedding anniversary. That’s when she discovered her tireless passion to share her experience of falling in love through fictional characters. That story evolved into the first novel in the Angles Trilogy.

Erin still lives in Denver with her husband, Phil, and their three children. They spend most of their summers and holidays on the beautiful island of Coronado where Erin and Phil wish to retire someday.
