Imagine discovering that your boyfriend was out to kill you—and that the annoying boy from school was your guardian angel. Rae Davenport has already lost her mother. The only thing keeping her sane is her new boyfriend, Andrei—that is, until she finds out that he wants to kill her. Andrei is a devil, and he wants to use Rae as a sacrifice to get back into Heaven. The only one who can save her is Logan, her guardian angel. He’s only annoyed her in the past, but now he will be her savior.
Excuse me! You can't just stop there, Brea Essex!
This was a beautiful story - from the very beginning to the very end, so much so that I was disappointed when I was finished reading, because I wanted more.
Raena has just lost her mum and now lives with her late mother's best friend Geneva and husband Shane. She meets Andrei and is smitten by his charm straight away, yet things turn a bit sour. And that's where Logan comes in - the guy from school who's is more like a pain in the butt, but turns out to be the guy she can rely on.
So where do I start? First of all, YA is not my genre really, but once again, I was proven wrong by having been hesitant. It's a great story. The characters are well developed, the reader can relate to each of them and their feelings. The scenes are nicely set that as a reader I had no trouble following. And the subject "angels" is subtle and believable for those readers like me, who are still at odds with "paranormal".
Bottom line, a wonderful read. I truly enjoyed it!
