Angel Eyes - Review

Angel Eyes by Shannon Dittemore

Goodreads Blurb
Once you’ve seen, you can’t unsee. Everything changes when you’ve looked at the world through . . .


Brielle’s a ballerina who went to the city to chase her dreams and found tragedy instead. She’s come home to shabby little Stratus, Oregon, to live with her grief and her guilt . . . and the incredible, numbing cold she can’t seem to shake.

Jake’s the new guy at school. The boy next door with burning hands and an unbelievable gift that targets him for corruption.

Something more than fate has brought them together. An evil bigger than both of them lurks in the shadows nearby, hiding in plain sight. Two angels stand guard, unsure what’s going to happen. And a beauty brighter than Jake or Brielle has ever seen is calling them to join the battle in a realm where all human choices start.

A realm that only angels and demons—and Brielle—can perceive.

My Review
I received this book from NetGalley from an honest review. It is a book about a girl name Brielle who returns home after a tragedy involving her friend Ali. Brielle blames herself and tries to go back to school and move on somewhat with her life. She meets Jake who is such a charming guy and moves in next door to her. She soon learns Jake isn't all that he seems and that Angels and Demons are real. She knows this because thanks to Jake she can now see them. 

This is such a delight to read. Brielle and Jake make a great couple. They grow into their relationship and make it very believable. You get to see Brielle not necessarily get over the tragedy but heal some from it with the help of Jake. Jake is a character you are sure to fall in love with. He has his own battles to fight but through it all he stay by Brielle's side to help her. 

The story is a smooth read. There really isn't any slow spots. You really get to see the characters and what makes them who they are. The battle scenes between the Angels and Demons are very good. It has a religious feel to the book but in my opinion it's not shoved down your throat or takes away from the story. It is very well written and the author does a great job keeping you guessing. Ali's tragedy comes back into play and I wasn't expecting it to be such a big part but it is. You even get to see the bad guys POV and it makes the story that much better. If you want to read a good book involving battle scenes, angels and demons, and one of the sweetest loves pick this one up.
