Ramatel’s Vow by Joel Crofoot

Summary

Seventy generations ago, the angel Ramatel was cast into hell for sleeping with human women. Now he has returned to earth, harboring a vendetta against God, only to find himself strapped with a beautiful young apprentice. Will his grudge stop him from letting something good into his life?

Clara has been given a second chance to save her soul by working with her chauvinistic mentor who has antiquated ideas of gender roles. She bucks his authority at every chance, until she has to face the very situation that killed her the first time. Does she have what it takes to face her fear?

Characters

Ramatel is a tortured soul. Despite this he is also a bit of a romantic. He considers himself ugly (due to the scars he acquired while in Hell). Clara is an interesting character. She is feisty and stubborn. Ramatel thinks she is there to clean but she is actually there to fight! It was so awesome to see Michael and Jahi from the first book back again – and Gabriel, of course. Although Ramatel was very well developed I felt there was something about Clara that just didn’t…work.

Plot

This is a paranormal romance. For sure chock full of sexual tension and I loved Ramatel. I was choked up a few times from the emotional scenes but as the book went on it eventually became repetitive. They kept making the same mistakes over and over. I get this was to show they are alike, but it was kind of irritating when it just kept happening. I actually started to resent Clara a little because of her reactions to Ramatel. It was like she was PURPOSEFULLY trying to misunderstand.

That being said the secondary plot was interesting! I loved the twist and what came of it. For sure kept me interested. I read it over the weekend and was great to pick up and read through.

Overall

A great romantic novels. Well worth the read if you’ve read the first one. Even if you haven’t, I still enjoyed it and would recommend it! There is a lot jam packed into the epilogue at the end. I think it was the longest chapter in the book. I think the author was trying to set up the next few books but it was a little overwhelming – so be warned. Despite the few drawbacks of this book I still loved it.

Virtually zero errors, easy to read, and great flow. The setting and characters were well set up and depicted. There was a good balance between the mystery surrounding Clara and the other secondary plot…which I won’t go into detail on.

It was a really enjoyable book! A little repetitive on the romantic relationships side and Clara felt a little off throughout the book, but well worth the read just for Ramatel! Can’t wait for the next one!

I received a copy in exchange of an honest review.
