Eden didn't expect Az.
Not his saunter down the beach toward her. Not his unbelievable pick up line. Not the instant, undeniable connection. And not his wings.
So long happily-ever-after.
Now trapped between life and death, cursed to spread chaos with her every touch, Eden could be the key in the eternal struggle between heaven and hell. All because she gave her heart to one of the Fallen, an angel cast out of heaven.
She may lose everything she ever had. She may be betrayed by those she loves most. But Eden will not be a pawn in anyone else's game. Her heart is her own.
And that's only the beginning of the end. (Goodreads)
I picked this book up thinking, "Wow, this is exactly the kind of thing I'll enjoy!" I mean, angels, romance, strange immortals, well, those are things I generally really find fun in a book. And then I started reading. And I honestly couldn't get into this book at all. I really hate to say this, but I don't know why I bothered finishing it. By halfway through, I knew it wasn't going to get any better. I just have a hard time putting a book down. It's like I'm failing it or something :) Anyhow, I really had no connection with any of the characters, felt like the explanations for the Siders, and their random "touch" were not explained at all, and well, just really couldn't get into it. And a few times I wanted to just tell the characters to stop fighting--that they just needed to grow up a bit. (Okay, yeah, I know, they're teens, but they were acting much younger...) Anyhow, yeah, just really not my kind of book. Not at all interested in seeing what happens in the next books either. I hate writing reviews like this, but honestly, I definitely should have just put this one down and read something else.
Anyone else have trouble putting down a book they're not enjoying? Can you put it aside easily?
