Forbidden Angel by Megan D Martin

Forbidden Angel by Megan D Martin

 When captured by the Nazi's, Sarah finds herself in a concentration camp that not only brings her closer to death...but closer to love.

Sarah Brenner, a young Jewish woman, is terrified when she finds herself in the heat of a railcar bound for a work camp in Nazi Germany. For years she, along with her mother and sister, had hidden from the SS, but no one could hide forever. Her hatred for those who have enslaved them is ever-growing, especially when they arrive and she encounters the shockingly handsome Nazi doctor who can’t seem to keep his eyes—or hands—off her.

Aurel Rothstein is not your everyday concentration camp physician. The endless prisoners and lack of care he's allowed to give have made him numb to the work he so coveted. It isn’t until he comes face to face with a beautiful prisoner that his heart becomes involved with his job—a forbidden and fatal move to any Nazi.

When a vile soldier takes direct interest in Sarah, she will be forced to make a choice that will change her life forever: ignore the pull toward the handsome doctor or give in to the forbidden passion he awakens with only a look. Either way they both risk everything...

I received this book from the lovely Megan D Martin in return for a review on my blog. I was more than happy to do this, it's the first time I've been asked by an author to do a review :)

I remember first seeing this a while back when another author friend of mine read it. And honestly, I put it on my to-read list, but I wasn't sure about it. I have never read anything like this before so wasn't sure how I'd get on with it. But it was Megan asking me to do a review that got me to pick it up, and I'm so glad I did! I'm going to try not to go into too much detail here!

The book is great. I picked it up yesterday morning and didn't put it down until I'd finished! A wonderful love story in a horrific situation.

Megan goes into great detail of the surroundings of the camp, which really gets you a good feel for it. I remember feeling so sorry for everyone in the first chapter when Sarah is describing the bodies, the cannibalism, and the smell of the dead.

At first, reading the blurb I thought, 'how could anyone fall for someone like that? Where is this book going to take us?'. But after reading it, and understanding Aurel, and actually seeing what he done to help people, I totally knew the answers. Aurel was a doctor in a concentration camp. But he was different, different from the other guards, and other doctors.

I loved the characters of Sarah and Aurel, you could feel the passion between them. I particularly liked the bath scene. When you read it, you will know why ;)

The story tore you in so many directions. You feel so happy during parts of the story, sad during others, and anger during others. The character Ivo was so well written, I could have jumped into the book and pummelled him myself. What an awful, arrogant arse he seemed to be!

All in all, I think Megan done a great job with this story, and I am so glad I read it. Get it on your to-read list!!!
