My Rating

Nora Grey's life is still far from perfect. Surviving an attempt on her life wasn't pleasant, but at least she got a guardian angel out of it. A mysterious, magnetic, gorgeous guardian angel. But despite his role in her life, Patch has been acting anything but angelic. He's more elusive than ever (if that's possible) and what's worse, he seems to be spending time with Nora's archenemy, Marcie Millar.

Nora would have hardly noticed Scott Parnell, an old family friend who has moved back to town, if Patch hadn't been acting so distant. Even with Scott's totally infuriating attitude, Nora finds herself drawn to him - despite her lingering feelings that he is hiding something.

If that weren't enough, Nora is haunted by images of her murdered father, and comes to question whether her Nephilim bloodline has anything to do with his death. Desperate to figure out what happened, she puts herself in increasingly dangerous situations to get the answer. But maybe some things are better left buried, because the truth could destroy everything - and everyone - she trusts.

 “Don’t ever leave me.” I told Patch.
“You’re mine, Angel, you have me forever.”

Everything had come into focus: his smooth words, his black, glinting eyes, his broad experience with lies, seduction, women. I’d fallen in love with the devil.- Nora

In the beginning, Nora professes her love for Patch and she thinks that he's freaked out and leaves. But actually he had a reason for leaving. And then pretty much the rest of the book Patch spends mostly with Marcie, he ex-friend and enemy. Marcie has made her life miserable, but at least Nora defends herself and doesn't just take it. So Nora & I were wondering the whole time what was he doing with Marcie. It looked like they were dating, which he could do since Nora and he broke up, but still I was so mad that in the middle I stopped reading, I read another book, then I read a few reviews of it & decided to give it another try and I finished it. I didn’t want to give up on it but I felt like there was nothing happening but Patch pissing me off with Marcie, but it picked up right after I started reading again.

The relationship between Nora and Patch was very abstract since book one. They didn’t say they loved each other but they showed it. That is why I was skeptical about continuing the series. They haven’t really had time to be together because of everything always going wrong, which would be fine if I knew how Patch felt about Nora. I already know how she felt because the book is in her point of view. There was also a surprising twist in the end that I did not see coming, the Black Hand was someone I didn’t expect. The ending was also a cliffhanger, and I think I’m going to have to read the next ones because the ending was so good that I need to know what happens next. It might be the best book yet.  


  1. I haven't read the second book yet, but I've read the first one. I thought it was pretty good, and I hope I enjoy the second one as much as you did. Great review! :)

    1. Thanks! I'm having some problems getting into this series. I think it was all the hype around it. I thought is was going to be much better.
