Blurb from Goodreads: She’s seventeen. She’s snarky. She’s trouble…
It wasn’t nicking an expressive watch or diamond bracelet that landed Jona Montiniere in the clutches of the police. It was just a darn sweater. After a spectacular, failed escapade, she is forced to return to a mother who spurned her. Jona is furious about the judge’s decision—until she meets her mother’s companion. Gorgeous, provocative, and mysterious, Julian is everything her lonely heart desires. But then he awakens her mother from the dead with a simple touch.
Hunting for the truth in a strange new home, Jona unearths broken promises and bitter secrets. Soon she realizes she’ll once again lose someone she loves…unless she gives him a reason to stay. But how the hell do you keep an angel earthbound?
Review: So first I would like to thank the awesome author of this novel for giving me the chance to read and review her book. Thank you so much!!! Now for the actual review.
Jona was a different kind of heroine. She wasn't the perfect heroine that leads the ideal life, that never does anything wrong and is nice to everyone. Jona faced a lot in her life and she was just a snarky, girl that knows that life is unfair and that it's not all fun and games. Jona has an attitude and she makes mistakes but as a heroine she was amazingly well written and easy to relate to. She struggled with herself and what choices she had to make and even though at times she came off as just a rude kid, she was just a girl that closed herself off from the world to make sure she doesn't get hurt again. So when the judge makes go live with her mom well she is about to relive something she doesn't want to go back too.
That chages when she meets her mom's caretaker, the amazingly hot, gorgeous, out of this world guy a.k.a Julian. I loved him. Even though at times I really questioned what the whole deal was between him and her mom. He was a great guy though and he really cared about Jona. Really he was just the perfect hero and he also happened to know what to say to get on your nerves. This guy really knew how to get a girl angry and frustrated but in a good way.
I liked how the plot worked out and this was just a really cute read. It has meaning to it and a kickass heroine but at the same time it has the fluff that I love so much from a paranormal YA.
In short go get this book if you like paranormal romance you wont regret it. Piper Shelly once again did an amazing job with her novel.
I give this novel
