Book Blurb ( from Goodreads)For Nora Grey, romance was not part of the plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how much her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her...until Patch comes along.

With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Nora is drawn to him against her better judgment, but after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure whom to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is, and to know more about her than her closest friends. She can't decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is far more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel.

For Nora is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen - and when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost her life.

I must start my review with an appertiser for this book....

"He spread his hands on the counter, just outside my hips. Tilting his head to one side, he moved closer. His scent , which was all damp dark earth, overwhelmed me............"You should go, " I breathed. "You should definitely go."
"Go here?' His mouth was on my shoulder . " Or here?". It moved up my neck.
"My brain couldn't process one logical thought. Patch's mouth was roaming north, up over my jaw , gently sucking at my skin....."

WOW!!!! I loved this book. I read twice ,2nd may 2010 and 3rd May 2010. Refreshing a male lead Character , Patch, who was flawed in so many ways but underneath was good. I can't look at Taco making the same way ever again. I loved the 'POW's'!!! I call a POW where the reader is blind sided, didn't see it coming.

Patch was a difficult character, full of secrets, mysterious, sexy and ultimately the saviour but no doubt also has his dark terrible secrets.
I just loved Patch and his personality, he just oozes it. He is a combination bad guy/good guy . At one stage I was yelling ''NOOOOOOOOOO!!!'' ,when I discovered Patch's motive.

It was refreshing to have interesting names in this book. Nora the female lead, Vee her best friend albeit you have to wonder sometimes about the title 'best friend'. I thought Nora's mum was a bit , "daft" through out this book , considering.

I love a good POW!!! and I think there is a great POW!! in this book. Becca Fitzpatrick has the reader ''brainwashed'' in this tale of a fallen, 'uber smexi' angel and a girl.

The book cover is a draw the tells alot before you open the book.

'Crescendo' ( sequel), will tell me just how bad Patch really is , current release date October 19 2010. I did have some unanswered questions at the end of the book, but that's what 'Crescendo' , is for.
"Crescendo" I can not literally wait for. When I finished this book I ran around in circles I wanted to read "Crescendo" that badly, but I must wait :(

"You smell good, too,” said Patch. 
"It’s called a shower.” I was staring straight ahead. When he didn’t answer, I turned sideways. “Soap. Shampoo. Hot water.”
"Naked. I know the drill." 
"Say 'provoking again. Your mouth looks provocative when you do."
 " Do you sleep naked?" he asked.

 "You possess other people's...bodies."
He accepted that statement with a nod.
Do you want to possess my body?"
I want to do a lot of things to your body, but that's not one of them."
"...I'm not good", he said, piercing me with eyes that absorbed all light but reflected none, "but I was worse."
