What goodreads says:
When Alexis Ames is attacked by creatures that can’t be real, she decides it’s time she learns who she really is, with or without the help of her mother, who guards their family’s secrets closely. After meeting the inhumanly attractive, multi-talented Tristan Knight, however, Alexis retreats behind her façade of normalcy…until she discovers he’s not exactly normal either. Then their secrets begin to unravel.
Their union brings hope and promise to her family’s secret society, the Angels’ army, and to the future of mankind. But it also incites a dangerous pursuit by the enemy – Satan’s minions and Tristan’s creators. After all, Alexis and Tristan are a match made in Heaven and in Hell.

My opinion:

I recieved this book for reviewing as part of the Romancing your dark side Paranormal Book Tour and at the end of this post you can find out how to win your own copy.
This book was amazing, it was actually better than I expected :)
Alexis is an unusual girl, on one hand her and her mum are always moving around, and her mum doesn't look old enough to be it, she's a writer and a bit of an outsider, so when they move to Florida so that she can start college, Alexis just wants to be normal for once.
I can totally relate to Alexis as when I was at school I was a bit like her (except the moving around part, I only moved once)
And then Tristan walks into her life (and mine) first as a friend who might be a little stalkerishy at first, but turns out to be loyal, protective and sweet and totally gorgeous.
I loved how it wasn't instant love, yes there was attraction, but it wasn't I love you even if I've only known you for like 2 seconds. And even when they admitted the love they still had tons of issues.
But that's not all, as well as having their own issues they have family secrets, add to that, the fact that Alexis isn't told any of these secrets, well trouble is bound to happen.
The secondary characters such as Sophia and Owen are well written and interesting, especially Owen, he was so sweet I wanted to hug and squeeze him.
The whole plot and writing was really good and kept you on the edge, and the cliffhanger!!! I can't wait to read the second and third book.
So I give it 5 stars and hope to read the second book soon ;)
