After six years of “angels” coming out of the sky and taking people from her town, 16-year-old Riley Carver has just about had it living with the constant fear. When one decides to terrorize her in her own backyard, it’s the final straw. She takes her mother’s shotgun and shoots the thing. So it’s dead. Or … not? In place of the creature she shot, is a guy. A really hot guy. A really hot alive and breathing guy. Oh, and he’s totally naked.
Not sure what to do, she drags his unconscious body to the tool shed and ties him up. After all, he’s an angel and they have tricks. When he regains consciousness she’s all set to interrogate him about why the angels come to her town, and how to get back her best friend (and almost boyfriend) Chris, who was taken the year before. But it turns out the naked guy in her shed is just as confused about everything as she is.
He thinks it’s 1956.
Set in the deep south, OUTCAST is a story of love, trust, and coming of age. It’s also a story about the supernatural, a girl with a strange sense of humor who’s got wicked aim, a greaser from the 50’s, and an army of misfits coming together for one purpose: To kick some serious angel ass.
When I read the " A really hot guy. A really hot alive and breathing guy. Oh, and he’s totally naked." part in the book summary..I knew right there and then that I have to read this haha..did I just sound like total pervert? to say that I enjoyed reading Outcast would be an understatement. I freaking loved it from the first chapter to the last.
Outcast is pretty different from the previous angel-theme books I've read in the past, I mean.. the heroine didn't always shoot some angel guy..only to find him naked, then bound and gagged him right? I totally loved Riley for doing that! seriously..this is why I love reading books..you get to read some crazy things.
I loved Gabe, the naked angel guy whom Riley bound then gagged..(I'm kind of obsessed with that part :P..kinky!) I loved that the two of them didn't have this insta-love..it was nice to see their uhm captor-captive relationship blossoming to friendship then to something else.
Outcast is a very fun and intriguing read, I'm excited for more of Gabe and Riley..I don't know what to expect next with the way things ended in this book..but I'm pretty positive that the second book will be as good if not better than the first.
I highly recommend this to Paranormal-(naked)Angel loving readers. :D
