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.
Know all the "still a better love story than Twilight" jokes? They won't work here.
I don't need fingers to count the amount of times he was even remotely nice to her because there wasn't any. The total sum of their proper conversations will probably amount to -1.
I had a physical reaction to this inconceivable "romance".
After all you've read, in this part and the four leading to it, can you imagine how shocked I was to learn that Patch apparently cared for Nora? Even loved her? Even before he entered her life? Dude, just no.
In all seriousness, all you girls--and boys-- out there, I beg you, don't go looking for a "relationship" like this. This is borderline abusive. Never go for a guy who makes a sport of hurting you. Never go for someone who would ignore your "no"s. You are worth so much more than this. Unless you're Vee.
