Guardian by Heather Burch

Book Description:
Vigilance. The mission to safeguard Nikki Youngblood depends on the fragile alliance of two half-angel, half-human guardians, both struggling with intense feelings for the girl who has been assigned to their care. Mace, steadfast and deeply in love, wants to protect Nikki at all costs, while Raven's loyalty to Nikki finds him advocating for her independence and battling his own darker inclinations. At the same time, Nikki finds it harder and harder to choose between the two heavenly beings she may never have. Dangers intensify, and tensions between Mace and Raven flare as the purpose of their mission becomes clear. Can their defenses hold up to master manipulator Damon Vessler and the powerful secret he holds regarding Nikki's heritage? Can anyone protect Nikki from her true purpose and destiny?

My Thoughts:
Loved!  Guardian picks up right where Halflings leaves off.  Nikki is living with the halflings now and still struggling for her feelings for both Mace and Raven.  Both boys are on a mission from the Throne to protect her but the complications make working together nearly impossible.  Damon is still trying to manipulate Nikki and she is having to get used to her new powers.  But is there more to all of it than they know?
I couldn't wait to read this and it didn't disappoint.  Nikki is growing in her power and learning all she can.  Mace is still her guardian and support even if it hurts to be around and not really have her.  Raven still wants her and will protect her with his life.  Both boys are wonderful and I can understand her problem with having to choose!  The story line was great.  I loved getting to know the female halflings better and even Will.  Can't wait for the next one to be released!
I rate it a 5/5.  Great book but you will need to start with Haflings or you'll be kind of lost in this one.

Thank you to the publisher for the review copy of this book (via netgalley).  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
