Someone - or something - is stalking Abby Marcheson. Luckily, she has her brother's hunky friend Seth to keep her safe. Abby falls easily into her protected life, with Seth constantly by her side, and when he asks her out on a date, she's eager to accept.
But Seth is much more than he seems. A Nephilim, a son of Angels with wings of his own, Seth is bound to spend his life hunting the Shemyaza, evil descendants of Angels. He's kept his wings hidden from Abby in order not to frighten her, but as her stalker becomes bolder, Seth begins to suspect that a Shem has Abby in its sights.…
As their flirtation escalates into full-blown passion, Seth is torn. Should he reveal his true nature to the beautiful, trusting Abby? Will she accept him, wings and all? Or will Abby flee her guardian angel and fall prey to the sinister force that wishes her harm?

I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
This could be the start of whole new series based around the good v dark Angels because there were quite a few Angels mentioned but I would only be more interested if they were narrated by a different person as GSC ruined the listen. She had a voice suited to the YA genre rather than adult fiction and for this reason I just couldn't treat it as a 'grown up' book even tho there were some sex scenes.
It was a pleasant enough listen but it was also one where you're constantly thinking "stupid move, stupid woman, stupid Angel, stupid stupid stupid" !! I just couldn't empathise with Abby and felt the characters were teenagers with phrases like "did you two bump uglies?" so for these reasons it just wasn't a book I could fall in love with either the characters or the plot.
Worth a credit? Debatable -yes it was a paranormal romance with tension and some love scenes but I just wasn't that emotionally committed to care - so it's a put it in your Wish List and wait for a sale book rather than a credit (change the narrator and all may have been different).
Love listening to audio books.
This book is a romantic, mystery and paranormal.
Seth is a descendant of angels called Nephilim, he fell in love once and lost that love. But was it true real love, she never knew his deepest secrets, he has never felt the need to be that honest. When a friend ask for his help to protect a woman named Abby, his deep need to protect and love her is unbearable, nothing will stand in his way, but his biggest fear is if she won't accept his Nephilim side. He's willing to give her all of him, is it going to be worth it?
Abby been in the worst kind of relationship you can imagine, with that man behind bars for trying to kill her and her family, she is trying to heal not only the physical scars but the emotional ones too. As her neighbor across the hall Seth is a temptation she can't resist and is willing to let the walls come down. But with someone trying to kill her all over again she doesn't want to risk losing him, so she does what she does best, runs.
Loved the story, but I just could not connect to the characters. Sorry.
