Book Blurb: Taken From Goodreads

How does a girl choose between the one who steals her heart and the one who owns her soul?

Matt and Emily were created for a specific job. Raised and trained as the ultimate angel/warrior team, they are sent down to save, defend, judge and forgive, depending on the 'life' they've been assigned. What they don't realize is that the power of human emotions, such as love, anger, passion and fear can take over even the best of souls, causing them to make mistakes and follow paths that lead to confusion and heartache.

When the reason for their training is finally revealed, the angel/warrior team find themselves thrust into a world they know nothing about. Matt takes over the life of Daniel, a young man with a great deal of baggage. Emily becomes Liz, a girl living in a remote village who relies on nothing more than her own strength to survive. A violent storm erupts one night, and framed in the window of Liz's establishment is a frightening face. Let in by the soul of a Good Samaritan, the two visitors bring with them a past full of secrets that could literally change an angel's path and a warrior's plans.


From murder to redemption, this angel/warrior team must find a way to keep the faith they have in each other in a world that's ripping them apart.


BOOK REVIEW:







‘Until Next Time’, was a very surprising read. Amy has done a wonderful job of bringing a very original take to the Angel genre. It was quite an amazing read in parts. I really felt quite taken in by the story and the emotion.
Matt and Emily are soul mates in Heaven. Matt has trained to be a warrior, well a warrior Angel, for the good side and Emily is an Angel. Both Matt and Emily go down to earth and lose the memory of who they are in Heaven. They are on an assignment of sorts to learn about human behaviour and why humans lose hope and other human emotions. Kind of like they have to live being human to understand it, to be able to inform the Archangels when they are brought back upstairs. So they go down as a clean slate and they go into the shell of Liz and Daniel’s bodies. They get Liz and Daniel’s memories, their lives. Although in Heaven they know each other, they do not have memory of each other on Earth.  They find each other and a story plays out. There is the possibility that they will each find somebody else and fall in love with a human as they have no memory of each other.
The story takes the reader between Heaven and Earth. I loved the Archangels playing cards..hehe!! Mark and his sayings that he was working on that would one day be used and quoted by people around the world.
Liz and Faith have a pub in 1800’s Dublin. Faith is a wonderful character. She knows how to talk the talk. Liz has dreams/nightmares where it appears like she dies or is dying and her body is covered in wounds. When she awakens , her wounds will heal . Faith is there for Liz when she goes through these sessions. She doesn’t understand them, but she is there for Liz.
Enter one stormy night Jason and Charles, who are the most gorgeous characters. Liz finds herself attracted to Jason, and Charles is totally lost, falling deep for Faith.
The foursome leave Dublin.  Charles and Jason have secrets and Faith is not impressed. She wants answers and she will get them, because Faith is a determined girl. The story then takes the reader back to Dublin, but a different side of Dublin for Charles and Jason to reveal the skeletons to the girls that are in their closets.

Boy, are there skeletons in those closets!!
I loved the ending to this book.  I thought it was quite beautiful and sad. It’s not your typical boy meets girl story. Jason is such an appealing character and Charles is a great guy. I would like to understand Matt more. I know he is Emily’s soul mate but my heart felt the pull more towards Jason.
Amy has written a wonderful book with great characters you can’t help love .
The one thing that hit home when reading this book was my own mortality and who would be waiting for me.
