Description: 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 and even worse, he's started spending time with Nora's arch-enemy, 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 feeling that he's hiding something. 

Haunted by images of her murdered father, and questioning whether her nephilim bloodline has anything to do with his death, Nora puts herself increasingly in dangerous situations as she desperately searches for answers. But maybe some things are better left buried, because the truth could destroy everything - and everyone - she trusts.

Review: This book was amazing. It took me on an emotional roller coaster. The first book was great and laying down the ground work for the characters. In this book I got so emotionally invested in them, and I just couldn't handle all the ups and downs. I was so hooked on this book because I needed to find out what was going to happen in the end. 

Patch is more mysterious then ever in this book and I loved it. He had so many secrets in this book that he was hiding from Nora, and I found myself reading just to know what those secrets were.

Nora and Vee were there usual selves in this book. I found Vee a little better in this book, and she didn't get under my skin as much as the last book. 

A big reveal happens in this book and becomes a game changer. It sets up the third installment perfectly. There is also a huge cliffhanger at the end of this book, and it left me shocked. The next book cant come out fast enough.
