It's been four months since Alex gave everything to save Jessica. Life should be perfect; she has Alex, she's been freed of the nightmares, and most of all - she's alive. But some things have changed, some things haven't. That's the problem. Alex still hasn't asked "the question". Jessica can't see the reason why, and it's tearing her apart. He's keeping something from her.
Alex isn't the only one who has changed though. Something is different about Jessica, but she doesn't understand what's happened. She just knows something's wrong, that she feels different than she used to, on a skin deep level. And it may keep her and Alex apart. Forever.
But while Alex and Jessica struggle to stay together, Cole is not about to be forgotten. There are a few things he didn't tell Jessica, about his past and her future. There are reasons why he came after her, reasons that are tied to his history that is darker than she could have ever realized.

I enjoyed this book. I found it engaging and yes a bit formulaic but sometimes the formula works, right? I'd consider it light reading. The story weaves around the characters and drew me in. It's not the next great novel probably more on par with twilight than Tolkien but in my opinion there is a place for reading just to enjoy. I listened to this and the other out now in this series at 1.25 speed and was able to maintain the story with no problem. Not sure if that is a good or bad sign but for me it means I can enjoy it trickling into my head without the need to have deep thoughts about the content or story. Personally when I just want to veg that is the sweet spot as far as I am concerned.
The book provides a glimpse into an alt universe where angels decide the fate of man and Angels include both the heavenly and devilish. Of course it has a base in a love story with intrigue. Good guy vs bad guy. Lots of misunderstandings and miscommunications. Inner dialogue that is self centered. And in the end the good guy ... Oops I'll leave that for you to discover.
loved it as much as the first, found the pronunciation to be difficult again though and unfortunately this narrator is really bad with British accents.
