Nobody's Angel (Earth Angels #1) by Stacy Gail

Investigative journalist Kendall Glynn is horrified when a friend and colleague signs off permanently during a live newscast, jabbing a pen into his jugular. Kendall's no expert, but judging by the strange white veil in the anchorman's eyes, she would swear he was a man possessed.

A descendant of the accursed Nephilim, Zeke Reece prowls San Francisco by night, keeping the city free from paranormal phenomena. But even he is no match for whatever malevolent force is behind a recent rash of murder-suicides. And when a beautiful tenacious reporter becomes the next target, Zeke has no choice but to stay close to her, until he can find the evil spirit and cross it over.

The closer Kendall gets to the truth, the more danger she's in. Fortunately, a sexy and mysterious masked stranger keeps swooping in to the rescue. Kendall's life depends on finding who or what is responsible for the killings, before it finds her.

3/5 stars 

Okay, I just have to get this out of the way....every time I read the name of the television station that Kendall works at, KPOW, I had to laugh.  I kept seeing it pop up in the air like in the old Batman series from the '60's.

 I'm not sure what I really felt about this book.  The concept is good, but I didn't care about the characters and don't think they interacted with each other enough to get to the point where their love was the forever kinda love.  I mean I guess dealing with crazy geists and puppet masters could bring on a stronger relationship, but I just didn't feel it.  I'm also confused about why he thinks he'd be killed for being a Nephilim but yet he goes out and brings attention to himself.  I think it was a good start to the series and I'll read the next just to see where it goes.  I would recommend it to somebody who wants a light fast paranormal romance.
