A SACRED OATH
A FALLEN ANGEL
A FORBIDDEN LOVE
Romance was not part of Nora Grey's plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how hard her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her. Not until Patch comes along. With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Patch draws Nora to him against her better judgment.
But after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure whom to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is and seems to know more about her than her closest friends. She can't decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is way more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel.
For she is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen - and, when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost Nora her life.
For explanation on this multi-parted rant, go to Part #1.
I despair for humanity when I think about the fact people like this guy. People fantasize about this class-A douche-bag. People swoon and sigh at his name. People need their heads checked, pronto. Because can any of you seriously tell me that in RL you'll want someone like this?!
He, on purpose, tries to make Nora fail a school assignment (which was then conveniently forgotten and never mention again). Every time they meet, he acts like an asshole, and not in a likable way. He forces her against walls again and again and doesn't stop when she tells him to (RAPIST! RAPIST! HELP!), stalks her (even if he's not the stalker), tries to scare her to death (in the literal sense of the word), always laughs at her, always mean, always tries to get a rise out of her.
And for Pete's sake, the only reason he got close to her was to convince her to effing kill herself for him, so he could execute his plans. W.T.F.
WHAT ARE HIS REDEEMING FEATURES!? ANYONE!? A morbidly curious part of me seriously want to know what you can possibly see in this guy (and don't tell me he gets better, because that sure af doesn't excuse anything). Honestly, people, there is nothing likable about him. I hated his creepy guts.
And then, he wants me to believe he cares for Nora? After she accused him of following and breaking into her house and he was completely unaffected by it, even though he knew he didn't do it so someone must've? At the very least, he should worry someone would kill her before he could convince her to do it herself!
