Review: Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick

To be blunt I am not a Twilight fan, to be brutally honest Twilight wrecked vampires for me, now every other author seems to follow Stephanie Myers' over the top love theme and vampires. When I was recommended this book I was not so wisely told that this novel would make Stephanie Myer jealous, then once the plot was explained how this was an ANGEL book I was intrigued and it now seems that we are entering an angel era, since quite a few angel books are coming out. I have come to like angel books because in most they are portrayed as pure and innocent making them seem like victims to mere mortals.

At times I am into sappy romance books and today was it so this book is not going to have a harsh review which what I've seen from other readers it is getting.

Nora Grey's life is still far from perfect. Surviving an attempt on her life wasn't pleasant, but at least she got a guardian angel out of it: a mysterious, magnetic, gorgeous guardian angel. But, despite his role in her life, Patch has been acting anything but angelic. He's more elusive than ever and even worse, he's started spending time with Nora's arch-enemy, Marcie Millar. 

Nora would have hardly noticed Scott Parnell, an old family friend who has moved back to town, if Patch hadnt been acting so distant. Even with Scott's totally infuriating attitude Nora finds herself drawn to him - despite her lingering feeling that he's hiding something. 

Haunted by images of her murdered father, and questioning whether her nephilim bloodline has anything to do with his death, Nora puts herself increasingly in dangerous situations as she desperately searches for answers. But maybe some things are better left buried, because the truth could destroy everything - and everyone - she trusts.

For any other sappy romantics and angel lovers this is a must read!
