Book description from Goodreads:
Nothing much happens in the sleepy town of Venus Cove. But everything changes when three angels are sent from heaven to protect the town against the gathering forces of darkness: Gabriel, the warrior; Ivy, the healer; and Bethany, a teenage girl who is the least experienced of the trio. They work hard to conceal their true identity and, most of all, their wings.
But the mission is threatened when the youngest angel, Bethany, is sent to high school and falls in love with the handsome school captain, Xavier Woods. Will she defy the laws of Heaven by loving him? Things come to a head when the angels realize they are not the only supernatural power in Venus Cove. There′s a new kid in town and he′s charming, seductive and deadly. Worst of all, he′s after Beth.
Beth, her brother and sister are sent down to earth in human form, but still have wings. Her brother and sister are very unsocial so when it comes to making friends in this new town they see no need in it, that is not why they are there. Beth on the other hand wants to experience everything human as much as possible and doesn't see the harm of a friend or two, so as to not surprise when she goes to school she makes a new friend, Molly, that her family doesn't seem to happy about. Along the way she meets Xaiver who is very friendly, but wont let anyone love him because he lost someone who he loved very deeply. All the girls have tried. But, he seems interested in Beth, it isn't until Molly has a party and Beth need saving that they start to form something that they would not have thought on Heaven or earth would be their everything, power unbelievable, love that only Our Father knows.
If I linger on some things in this book that upsets me then I wouldn't like it so much, but they are just small things and it's mainly just because that I, myself, am a Christian so I see a Angel getting drunk I'm just like, what the the world?! But, thoughts things don't matter so much as the whole plot and the end REALLY makes up for anything upsetting or so on.
My Rating: 4 out of 5
There is mild language, and few kissing scenes but they do not get descriptive.
There is also talk about sex and well *spoiler* (the kinda lay in bed naked together)
Also use of alcohol and mention of people looking drugged.
