Three angels are sent by Heaven to bring good to a world falling under the influence of Darkness: Gabriel, the warrior; Ivy, the healer; and Bethany, the youngest and most human. They work hard to conceal there luminous glow, there superhuman powers, and there wings. Then Bethany meets Xavier Woods, and the two are unable to resist there attraction to one another. But the angels' mission is urgent, and dark forces are threatening. Will love ruin Bethany or save her?
The Storyline: I actually read half of this book last summer but I stopped reading it and I couldn't remember why. Now I remember. It isn't like the book is awful it just isn't my thing. So basically three angles come to Earth to promote goodness and get rid of forces of darkness. It sounds interesting right? Well along the way Bethany falls in love and does other things from pure pressure from her friends. Maybe it is just me but I would have thought that angles were more perfect and knew right from wrong since they were from Heaven. Once Bethany does fall in love with Xavier, and he loves her, he is kind of the stereotypical boyfriend. He play lots of sports, he is the school vice president and he is over protective of Bethany. It got annoying. I couldn't even find the real plot because I thought they were supposed to be helping the people and trying to bring goodness to the Earth. I don't think Bethany was doing that, plus the only thing they ever talked about was her and Xavier. That was practically the plot with mentions of things like church and goodness.
The Writing Style: It was fine nothing spectacular but it didn't have grammar mistakes from what I could tell.
The Pace of the Book: The beginning is kind of interesting, but then she starts going to school and she falls in love and to me it got annoying and boring.
The Girls: Bethany is annoying and not a heroine she depends way to much on either her older brother or Xavier. She is Clingy. Her friends are stereotypical high school girls. They gossip, they talk about boys and clothes, nothing special.
The Boys: Xavier is the stereotypical boyfriend and they only guy bedsides Gabriel the first half of the book. Later they introduce a new guy Jake and he makes all the wronge choices and brakes all the school rules.
Other Stuff: Ok I am sorry if I am making the book sound really bad. It wasn't the worst book I have ever read. I just don't need to read more romance books. If you like romance books you would enjoy this, It is just not my kind of book.
Hope everyone is having a good weekend!!
