I really enjoyed this book. I read it quite awhile ago, and the relationship between Bethany and Xavier as well as the 'family' that Bethany, Ivy, and Gabriel create are still very memorable. The descriptions of the town, and the way the angels feel a pull towards human passions were super interesting to read. I thought this book was age appropriate, without being juvenile. :) If you enjoy long, slower paced stories this book won't disappoint. If you want a short, 'to the point' read you might want to pass it by. I loved it! Can't wait to read the sequel. Just released August 30th!
