Review by: Emily Piland on Jan. 26, 2013 :
Tiffany King is a brilliant author with amazing detail! I was hooked from the first paragraph to the first book of the Saving Angels series. Tiffany King's 'Meant To Be' is a story of celestial beings born as humans to be guides and protectors to save the forgotten souls of the world from being lost forever to evil. This is a story of a life of heartache, death, discovering friendships, finding lost family and not to mention, finding the man of her dreams. So, if you're looking for an exciting, adventurous and love filled book that will consume you, this is the book for you!

Mmm. If you liked Halo, you'll probably like this book. I didn't and I'm sorry to say that I was very disappointed in this book after so many of my friends loved it. I can see why people might like it - idealised love can be intoxicating - but I felt it was very niave and in particular have the following concerns. If these things don't bother you, you may well love it.

I feel that the theme of someone else completing you, of not being whole or able to cope without them is something that gives a very unhealthy message, especially to young people. A healthy love relationship is between two whole people. A woman does not need a man to complete her. This kind of dependancy on another person is not something we should encourage. It disempowers woman, and is the sort of attitude that woman's liberation sought to overcome back in the seventies. Sigh! Was it all for nothing?

I know this is a fantasy, but really good fantasy illuminates reality and highlights truth, whereas the message here is that there is one perfect person for us out there, and this idea neither true nor helpful. Yes, when in the throws of first lust, it feels like that, but in this book this idea is virtually the whole theme.

The truth is that lust is instantaneous but love isn't. The boy of our dreams is not real and if we keep looking for him, we'll be disappointed, or we'll marry the one we think is our ideal and at some point the reality hits with ground shaking results. Isn't this a better message for young people?

Add to that, there are scenes that don't move the story forward and could have been cut entirely and the story moves so slowly that I was skimming large sections waiting to find out why these people were like this ie so debilitated when apart, and the answer when it comes wasn't very satisfying or believable. The main character was good, but the love interest was too perfect to be real. The bad guy was very one dimensional and I really couldn't see his motivation for what he was doing. There were also punctuation mistakes and a lot of the writing could have been much better.

I congratulate the author on getting her work out there, but I would like to see the author try a more healthy theme.

'Meant to Be' is a one of those stories that eases you in then sucks you up and leaves you wanting more. I found the characters great. I mean, really, who hasn't felt like an outcast at one point in their lives. It's easy to imagine what Krista is going through even if you don't have overwhelmingly strong emotions that cause you to puke in public. The fact that she's had the same dream every night for as long as she can remember makes you wonder what it's all about. Enter some new characters and the stage is set for letting us know what in the world is happening to this poor girl. This story had some great twists and kept me entertained which is what I'm looking for when I'm reading a book. I can't wait to see what Tiffany King comes up with for the sequel to this story. This book gets a great five stars from me.

Review by: Andrea Thompson on May 15, 2011 :
Meant to Be is a great debut for author Tiffany King. The story has great characters. Krista is very relatable and endearing. As teens, many of us felt as if every feeling and emotion was on display. But for Krista, that's a reality. She is the kind of character you can't help but love. Mark is the handsome and noble young man that many of us wish we had known in high school. He was totally swoon-worthy. There are the great sidekicks, Shawn and Sam, that are a lot of fun to read.

In addition to great characters, Meant to Be had a nicely developed, well paced storyline. I had gone in thinking the book was only a love story, but about halfway through, I was caught by surprise. I found myself suspensefully reading, frantically trying to find the answers to the questions forming in my mind. What is the connection that binds Krista and Mark? What is this unseen force trying to tear them apart. I literally flew through the last half of the book trying to find the answers to those questions. That to me is the mark of a truly great book. I HAD to know the answers.

Tiffany King has a great way with descriptive writing. She is able to set the scene and emotions without being too wordy and bogging the flow. Every time Krista became overwhelmed, I became flustered as well. When King described the climate, I almost felt I needed to clean myself of the salt and sand of Santa Cruz, California. I am looking forward to reading many more books by Tiffany King.

I absolutely loved it. The character of Krista was adorable. It was impossible not to like her, and even more impossible not to root for her all the way. The story was well-organized and structured. Well done Tiffany!

Was very excited to read this book after reading the blurb for it. It didn't disappoint!
Though there were a few editing errors (as an editor I'm more likely to note these however) they did not detract from the story itself.
