For Nora Grey, romance was not part of the plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how much her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her...until Patch comes along.Review: This book first caught my attention because 1- it's about a fallen angel, and 2- the girl's name is Nora. Angels are awesome (usually), but c'mon, how may books do you read that have a Nora in them? It instantly became a must read for me.
With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Nora is drawn to him against her better judgment, but after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure whom to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is, and to know more about her than her closest friends. She can't decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is far more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel.
For Nora is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen - and when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost her life.
This story is very captivating. It follows Nora Grey, a regular run-of-the-mill teenager girl with an angel problem. Make that one angel, a fallen one, named Patch. Against everything she knows, Nora finds herself falling for Patch, and the whole kit-and-caboodle of fallen angel drama that comes with him. But nevermind that little obstacle!
Nora suddenly finds herself smack-dab in the middle of an ancient battle between angels and the fallen. But in the end, it all comes down to whether or not she can throw away all she knows for the boy with the crooked smile who captured her heart.
Plus, the cover art is just mad wicked!
