First in the Angel Trilogy
Young Adult Fiction

From Goodreads:

Willow knows she’s different from other girls, and not just because she loves tinkering with cars. Willow has a gift. She can look into the future and know people’s dreams and hopes, their sorrows and regrets, just by touching them. She has no idea where this power comes from. But the assassin, Alex, does. Gorgeous, mysterious Alex knows more about Willow than Willow herself. He knows that her powers link to dark and dangerous forces, and that he’s one of the few humans left who can fight them. When Alex finds himself falling in love with his sworn enemy, he discovers that nothing is as it seems, least of all good and evil. In the first book in an action-packed, romantic trilogy, L..A. Weatherly sends readers on a thrill-ride of a road trip — and depicts the human race at the brink of a future as catastrophic as it is deceptively beautiful.

Opinion:

I knew this was a book for me when it started in Oklahoma. Okay, so not a wholly positive view of Oklahoma, but still any book that has my home state is aces for sure.

The writer is so in touch with Alex. This is one of the fully fleshed out male characters I’ve read in awhile. He is a kick-ass assassin and also a great boyfriend. He’s sweet and capable, a combination that makes for a fully rounded character that I might be a smidgen in love with myself.

Willow’s an awesome chick, that has style and mechanical skills. She is unpopular in high school, but she’s comfortable with that. She has self-confidence that comes with age and though she may only be seventeen she has seen a world of life with her mother’s debilitating issues.

Can get boring at times if you like constant action, but the romance that is the heart of the story is so sweet that if you like romance its perfect. The romance of the story is about healing and acceptance. It’s a romance that is more akin to adult romance. This is a melding of hearts not of lust.

Jonah believes all his strength is with the angels, but finds it’s inside himself instead.

I seriously want the second book right this second, but alas I’ll have to wait a year.

Loved this book!

Rating: 4.5/5
