But the mission is threatened when the youngest angel, Bethany, is sent to high school and falls in love with the handsome school captain, Xavier Woods. Will she defy the laws of Heaven by loving him? Things come to a head when the angels realize they are not the only supernatural power in Venus Cove. There′s a new kid in town and he′s charming, seductive and deadly. Worst of all, he′s after Beth.
There are many mixed reviews on this book so I tried to read it without thinking of the reviews I've read. Yes there is religion in the book (it is about angels after all) but I did not find it preachy or annoying, perhaps because I was raised in a Catholic home I understood what they were talking about and did not mind it. I did not really like Bethany's character, she seemed a bit clingy and immature, but it is understandable as she is new to the world. I enjoyed the book and it was one of those I thought about when I was not reading so I can say it held my attention with a firm grip. Oddly enough it was not the main guy I was interested in reading about, but rather I loved reading about Bethany's "brother" Gabriel. Talk about swoon-worthy, he's a strong angel warrior (what's not to like?) I am looking forward to the next book!
I give this book 3.5 owls!
