What goodreads says:
Angels are all around us: beautiful, awe-inspiring, irresistible.
Ordinary mortals yearn to catch a glimpse of one of these stunning beings and thousands flock to The Church of Angels to feel their healing touch.
But what if their potent magnetism isn't what it seems?
Willow knows she's different from other girls. And not just because she loves tinkering around with cars.
Willow has a gift. She can look into people's futures, know their dreams, their hopes and their regrets, just by touching them. But she has no idea where she gets this power from.
Until she meets Alex…
Alex is one of the few who know the truth about angels. He knows Willow's secret and is on a mission to stop her.
The dark forces within Willow make her dangerous – and irresistible.
In spite of himself, Alex finds he is falling in love with his sworn enemy.

My opinion:

I've read this book as part of the The Book Nerd Choice of the month of October, yes I know I'm behind for once in my life as I've finished it on the second to last day of the month but I have gone back to studying so I haven't had much time sigh....
But now for the book. Generally speaking Angelic books bring me deception, as either it's a human girl falling for an angel who happens to be a warrior swoops her away with his amazing looks and wings, whereas the female is annoying; or even worse the angel isn't a warrior at all.
But this book was amazing, true the angels weren't exactly warriors, but they weren't the epitome of goodness.
Willow is a great protagonist and her development and how she comes to accept who and what she truly ism is realistic inside the fact that this is a paranormal book were talking about.
Alex, sigh what about him, he's the male character, he's completely human (or at least I think so) but also strong young boy who has suffered allot in life and who's main goal is to destroy the angels.
The angels are the main antagonists in this book, particularly Raziel who has his own secret (although I suspected it half way through the book)
I loved how the love in between Alex and Willow develops slowly and how they both learn to accept that there is good things and bad things about each other.
And I was really sad about Cully.
My only problem with this book was the jumping in between characters POV, but apart from that excellent choice Jean^^
So I give it 4 stars.
So tomorrow I'll finish the BNC for Halloween:

And in November:
