Between the pissed off creatures that want demon-hunter Lily Marks dead and the fallen angel who just...wants her, Lily is about ready to trade in forever for a comfy job in a cubicle farm.

The fact that she and Julian are civil to one another is enough to have her thrown out of the Sanctuary, but she can't shake her not-so-angelic stalker or how he brings her dangerously close to ecstasy.

Her forbidden relationship with Julian provides the perfect fuel for suspicion when a traitor is discovered to be working within the Sanctuary. Lily quickly finds herself hunted by well, everyone.

Her only hope is to discover the real traitor before she loses everything--and she'll need Julian's help. That is, if Julian is really there to help her...and not destroy her.

Yeah, being a Nephilim isn't everything it's cracked up to be.


When I bought this book I thought it was YA. When I heard it wasn't I just shrugged and figured I read it anyway, because I have to admit. I love Jennifer's writing.  So, yes I am briefly reviewing an adult book. 

I liked the characters for the most part. Lily was brave and stubborn, things I liked in a heroine and Julian is just yummy. The book starts out with them already knowing each other, were he provokes her and claimed she is turned on by him. Now I don't know about you, but if a guy said that to me I would be running for the hills.

Micheal doesn't know he is a Nephilim so when Lily knocks him out (after he tried to shoot her of course) she knows she is in some deep trouble. Not only does she save him, she has to train him as well. Only problem is Lily has the patience of an ant and wants to stab him in the eye with a spork. 

Down to the interesting bits now. I was expecting sex, it is in the romance genere, an adult book. But I didn't think there would be a lot. Or graphic (That is my opinion. Remember I am only 16. In my defense I bought it thinking it was a YA book) It is graphic and paints the picture in your mind.

All in all the story was interesting and I liked it. Like I said, I'm briefly reviewing this because we are a YA book blog.
