Honestly, when I started this book I thought it was a contemporary book. After reading the synopsis, it read (to me at least) as a contemp. book about a woman unable to conceive and a new love that helps her heal...Or something along those lines. What I did NOT expect was a book about heaven and hell, shape-shifters, angels, demons and a vampire thrown in for good measure. However, that did not faze me and I continued on with my reading.
Now although the story was okay, I have to say that the writing did not appeal to me. I did not like it at all. It seemed very amaturish. And to be completely truthfull I did not like the main character. She was so damned annoying! As well as being whiny and childish. From this story we are told that she is about twenty-seven or twenty eight. But in one plotline she goes to a dance, kisses someone, the person takes off and the next day she tells her best friend (after crying all night,mind you) "he kissed me and left and I will never go to that party again". This is a friend's party she's been going to annually. I mean really dude.How old ARE you?! That's what I will expect my high school teen-aged daughter to come home and tell me when she goes to a party.
And throughout the book a lot of what happens does not ring true. I know, I know...It's supposed to be UF or whatever, but there were A LOT of coincidences in this book, too many if you ask me, too many to be plausible.
I did give it a 2.5 rating because I did want to know what happened in the end, andit did capture my imagination somewhat, but not enough.
