This is a paranormal romantic read full of angels, demons, and everything in-between. With crazy ups and thrilling lows, this page-turner is a FIVE STAR read.
Humans worked so hard to hang on to life, when in the grand scheme, the thing they valued so much was nothing more than a grain of sand in the sea of eternity.
Gwen is an angel of joy, spreading her healing touch wherever she goes. When she meets Easton, a Hell’s reaper, she wants to spread her magic touch to him as well. But Easton is broken, shattered, and unfixable. He’s been traveling to and from Hell for half a century and he can’t be fixed. His only fear now? Gwen. He’s deathly afraid of tainting her with his darkness. But will Gwen stay away? Or is she just too stubborn for her own good?
One look at him should have sent me running in the other direction, but when he lifted his gaze, his strange violet eyes connected with mine. Something in me flickered to life. The void inside pulsed, pushing me forward.
It is no secret that I’m a paranormal addict. I love all things otherworldly. When the impossible comes to life on my pages. So when I picked up this book to read, I was fairly certain it would be a winner with me. Angels, reapers, and a trip to a Hell full of horrors and demons? Wicked fun to read!
The love story was fairly predictable in the beginning. I knew who would be involved before they even met. That is probably because of the style of the book. You will be reading through two perspectives. Gwen and Easton. Therefore, as a reader, it is obvious where the romance of this story will be. But that being said, it was NOT obvious on the HOW. The rules made it clear that Gwen was forbidden from wanting anything. As an angel, her job was to spread joy. Nothing more and nothing less. So it was really interesting to see how it all developed.
My emotions went on a roller coaster ride with this novel. I had my ups where I was silently giggling. I had moments of shock where ‘I didn’t see that coming’ moments struck me. I was rooting for my main couple. And I even had moments of sadness. I didn’t cry. I didn’t!
I think that this book is appropriately titled. It is always awesome when the reader can see where the title comes from. It fits this darker paranormal romance perfectly. With most romances you just know that it will end with a happily ever after and with this one it was really interesting to read because it was a huge question mark on just how that would happen that at points you didn’t think it would!
All in all, it was a very entertaining read.
“I’ll always save you, Gwen,” he said, without hesitation. “As long as I have you, I mean.”
I would recommend this to the romance lovers. If you enjoy a great page-turner full of forbidden love…then this is a book for you. Enjoy, I know I did.
The earth rumbled, cutting off Sky’s words. The chatter filling the coffee shop quieted. Black tendrils of fear curled through the room like smoke. Sky turned to me, eyes wide, and just like that the world around us lit up in an explosion of glass and flames.
