Synopsis: “Angels aren’t supposed to fall in love, especially with each other. But for the record, you were worth it.” Grace Tate is a Protection Angel and Vampire Hunter, and she has always followed the rules. But some rules are made to be broken… Until now the fight against evil has been simple, and falling in love was never part of the plan. So what happens when it’s beyond Grace’s control, and when she least expects it she falls for the wrong person? All hell breaks loose, that’s what. At Hopetown Valley High, not everything is as it seems, and the one person Grace thought was her enemy becomes her most important ally. Blood will be shed, lives will be lost and friendships will be tested. It all comes down to one decision, and when Grace tries to save all those dear to her, she realizes not everyone can be—or wants to be—saved.
Review: Grace is a protection angel. She stands up for what she believes in and will protect the ones that she loves no matter what. Angels aren't supposed to fall in love though...and there are consequences! Grace must choose what side she will fight for, who she loves, and how to keep everyone safe The whole tone of this book seemed very young, even for YA. But, that doesn't mean that I didn't enjoy portions about the story myself. My biggest gripes with this particular book had to do with goal, motivation, conflict, and believable plot points. Grace came off as much too immature for an angel who had been in existence for centuries. I thought she made a lot of bad decisions and she was very self-centered. I liked her loyalty to Charlotte and her brother but she brought Josh into her world for very selfish reasons and everything that happened with him was her fault. They had this insta-love that I didn't really get into. I felt like they moved way too fast and had this eternal love after only one week. However, as soon as Grace changed, she suddenly had resurfacing feelings for Seth and she was now stuck in a love triangle. Josh. He is ecstatic to have Grace share his feelings and she gives up everything to be with him. She pulls him into her world and he comforts her when she needs him the most. As soon as his world is turned upside down, Grace pretty much abandons him and he is left heart-broken and forever changed. However, his feelings for her have never wavered, no matter how angry he is. Seth is the bad boy but he isn't as terrible as he lets everyone believe. Everything he did was because of his love for Grace and when she changed he finally saw his chance to be with her. She wants so badly to be with Josh but when Seth begins to pursue her, she sees a different side of him, one from long ago. Archer came across as bratty and self-centered. I did not like his character very much. Charlotte was an easily likable character. While everything they have ever known says they can’t be together, they have an attraction to one another that can’t be explained. Archer is very protective of Grace and he is a very loyal friend and brother. Charlotte is sweet and caring but she is holding a secret that will change everything.
