Goodreads summary:

Nora should have known her life was far from perfect. Despite starting a relationship with her guardian angel, Patch (who, title aside, can be described as anything but angelic), and surviving an attempt on her life, things are not looking up. Patch is starting to pull away, and Nora can't figure out if it's for her best interest or if his interest has shifted to her arch-enemy Marcie Millar. Not to mention that Nora is haunted by images of her father and she becomes obsessed with finding out what really happened to him that night he left for Portland and never came home.

The farther Nora delves into the mystery of her father's death, the more she comes to question if her Nephilim blood line has something to do with it as well as why she seems to be in danger more than the average girl. Since Patch isn't answering her questions and seems to be standing in her way, she has to start finding the answers on her own. Relying too heavily on the fact that she has a guardian angel puts Nora at risk again and again. But can she really count on Patch, or is he hiding secrets darker than she can even imagine?


I loved it. I loved it, I loved it! As you can see this was very very close to a ten. But it that didn’t quite make it a ten because for me personally even though I hate comparing different book series and authors, some parts of the book felt similar to New Moon by Stephenie Meyer in the way that Nora felt, it was like she was having a Bella/Edward emotions thing in one.

In this book I thought that the character grew and with some came into their own, like Vee for example all you know about her in the first book is that she’s Nora’s best friend that is a bit chubby, has big boobs and liked to eat. But in this nook her character grew and I ended up really liking her.

Even though I thought that the ending was a really good way to end the book, I did shout at the book for a minute, while my mother gave me funny looks because I didn’t want it to end, I wanted to reads what happened next not get massive cliff hanger!

Becca did a fabulas job with the emotions that Nora was going through (even though it did sometimes get on my nerves) and reading it made me feel as if I was able to feel them myself. I didn’t really now what to expect from this book, I didn’t want to set my expectation to high because the first book was so good, but I loved it I just couldn’t get enough of Patch and Nora.
