Violet Eden is dreading her seventeenth birthday dinner. After all, it’s hard to get too excited about the day that marks the anniversary of your mother’s death. The one bright spot is that Lincoln will be there. Sexy, mature and aloof, he is Violet’s idea of perfection. But why does he seem so reluctant to be anything more than a friend?
After he gives her the world’s most incredible kiss – and then abandons her on her front doorstep – Violet is determined to get some answers. But nothing could have prepared her for Lincoln’s explanation: he is Grigori – part angel and part human – and Violet is his eternal partner.
Without warning, Violet’s world is turned upside down. She never believed in God, let alone angels. But there’s no denying the strange changes in her body … and her feelings for Lincoln. Suddenly, she can’t stand to be around him. Luckily, Phoenix, an exiled angel, has come into her life. He’s intense and enigmatic, but at least he never lied to her.
As Violet gets caught up in an ancient battle between dark and light, she must choose her path. The wrong choice could cost not only her life, but her eternity…

I don't know whether I love these books more because of the amazing story, a wonderfully easy read, or the fact that the author is Australian. Either way, I love them. EMPOWER HURRY UP AND BE RELEASED SO I CAN BUY YOU. (2013)
I've never truly been one for books that have abit of religion based facts mixed in with the story but this had just enough to give an interesting background to the angels that are discussed through out the, book. The situations were very unpredictable for me, as it didn't have me already knowing wh...
I was hooked from early on with this, the authors way of writing was different to other young adult authors. Maybe it was the fact that Violet was turning seventeen right at the start and therefore we had none of the sometimes annoying sixteen year old stuff that is in others.That being said, Violet...
