Series: Urban Seductions #10
Published by Ellora's Cave Genres: Paranormal
Sally is one powerful witch who now works as a Guardian—a protector of others with power from those that might hurt them or worse. Sally might now work to protect others, but it wasn’t so long ago that Sally thought she might have been lost to the dark side of power. What first seemed like just a small thing to help out became a strong addiction that almost stole her soul, and it would have without the help of her partner and best friend, Kyle.
Kyle has loved Sally for what seems like forever, and he will do anything to make sure she is safe. Even if that means risking himself in order to protect her, then sign him up. But what Kyle would really like to do is take their relationship to the next step, however Sally has never shown him in word or act that she sees him as anything other than her partner and friend. All that changes one night after Sally has a nightmare that seemed so real.
Just when Sally and Kyle are about to embark upon the new aspect of their relationship, they are needed to finish off their last mission and help expose who on the Council has decided to gain and use the darkest of magic for their own gain. Sally only knows of one way to set a trap, and it will expose her to the darkness in her, something that Kyle is not willing to accept at first. However, once the trap is set, it isn’t the darkness that will win the day, but the light and love between Sally and Kyle.
Two Guardians put their lives on the line to protect others all the time, yet it will be their love for each other that will protect the other in Guardian of My Soul. I wondered about Sally and Kyle’s relationship, since they first appeared in previous books. I knew they were close partners, but I wasn’t surprised when their relationship jumped to the next level with a heat that could have burned off the pages. I admit to siding with Kyle when Sally explained her trap, yet saw that it really was the only way to go. I loved watching as Sally and Kyle defined just what love really means and showed just what they would go through to save each other. Guardian of My Soul not only answered a mini arc of this series, but also proved that a bit of darkness just highlighted the bright light and love. It is a wonderful next chapter in a world that constantly has me wondering what will be next around the corner.
