Synopsis from Amazon.co.uk
I met someone who changed everything. Matthias. My autistic sister’s guardian angel. Honest. Inspiring. Funny. Hot. And immortal. That was the problem. What could I do? I did what any other girl would do – I fell in love with him. Zoe’s sister darts in front of cars. Her brother’s a pothead. Her parents are so overwhelmed; they don’t see Zoe lost in her broken life. Zoe escapes the only way she knows how: partying. Matthias, a guardian sent from Heaven, watches over Zoe’s autistic sister. After Zoe is convinced he’s legit, angel and lost girl come together in a love that changes destiny. But Heaven on Earth can’t last forever.
This is the first book I’ve ever read by Jennifer Laurens and I was blown away by how great it was. The story is mainly about Zoe, she’s fed up with her troubled life since her autistic sister Abria was born, and has turned to drink and partying to escape from it all. Then a handsome guy starts popping up around Abria anytime she’s in trouble, and Zoe comes to realise she’s seeing an angel. She slowly starts falling in love with him, and he with her, but how can they be together when he’s an angel, and she’s mortal?
I have to admit, this story gripped me from the first page and I couldn’t put it down until I was finished with it. The story was realistic, and evolved really well, drawing me in and making me feel for the characters. I enjoyed reading the romance evolving, as well as Zoe growing up and becoming a woman. I’ll be honest, I don’t believe in heaven or God, so I was a little apprehensive about that aspect of the story, but it was beautifully written and enjoyable to read. I’d really recommend this to anyone who enjoys YA books, you won’t regret it, and I can’t wait for the follow up book!
