Heaven Help Her.

Bethany Church is an angel sent to Earth to keep dark forces at bay. Falling in love was never part of her mission, but the bond between Beth and her mortal boyfriend, Xavier Woods, is undeniably strong. But even Xavier’s love, and the care of her archangel siblings, Gabriel and Ivy, can’t keep Beth from being tricked into a motorcycle ride that ends up in Hell. There, the demon Jake Thorn bargains for Beth’s release back to Earth. But what he asks of her will destroy her, and quite possibly, her loved ones, as well.

The story that Alexandra Adornetto built in her New York Times – bestselling debut, Halo, comes alive in action-packed and unexpected ways, as angels battle demons, and the power of love is put to the test.

Quick Summary: Bethany is an angel who falls in love with Xavier, a human boy who shows he would do anything for her. When Bethany finds herself on a bike ride to hell she doesn’t know what to do.

First, I wanted to mention that Alexandra Adornetto was only 19 YEARS OLD when this was published! She worked on “Halo” when she was in high school and became published when she was 18. I think that’s incredible and considering how young se was when she wrote this, It is a good book, it just, in my opinion, reads quite young, with the writing style and the Romance, but it is kinda about a high school Romance so that makes sense.

Other than that, the story was as good as Halo. This book was as dark and twisted as Halo was sunny and light. The ending was totally believable to me, and I feel the author did a great job staying true to the characters.

I’m sorry, these reviews have been really short, but considering how long ago I read these books, I can’t be bothered to review them, the longer I hold of on doing these reviews, the more I just don’t feel like doing them, It’s not that I’m not enjoying writing these exactly, It’s more because I can’t hardly remember much about these books. But I hope you like theses reviews anyway. Have you read this series? What are your Thoughts on it? Let me know in the Comments!

The edge-of-your seat powerful conclusion to GHOST HOUSE. In the sequel to the page-turning GHOST HOUSE, Alexander Reade turns up at Sycamore High not remembering how he got there. But worse, he doesn’t remember Chloe Kennedy and believes he has come back to search for his lost love Isobel.

Chloe soon realizes that Alex needs her help surviving in the modern world. With his looks and the way he speaks, it’s as though he’s from another century. Which he is. In fact Alex has been dead for 157 years, but that doesn’t change how Chloe feels about him.

Chloe begins to experiences dreams that take her to a past life and realizes they are linked to Isobel. But when Isobel appears, Alex and Chloe must accept that the past and the present have collided. Chloe is being hunted by Isobel, who is just as vengeful as ever and out to destroy any bond between Alex and Chloe.

And she will do so – no matter the cost.

I really loved the first book – Ghost House – You can read my review HERE but this book was a let down. I waited 2 years for this and it felt rushed. I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t exactly love it. I takes a lot for me to focus on a book and for my mind to keep interested in a book, and this one didn’t keep my interest at all, so I really struggled to get through it. I thought it was really boring compared to the first book. This book was not what I expected. To be honest, I don’t actually remember that much about this book.

Compared to the first book this one was really lacking plot. The first book was so full of detail and suspense that I couldn’t wait to read the next one. So I was kinda disappointed when I was finally able to read it. It was great to see what had after the ending of the first but this one didn’t draw me in the same way the first did.

This was really short but I didn’t have much to say about this one! If you’re interested in this series though, definitely check out my review of Ghost House, I go more into detail there! Have you read this series? Let me know your thoughts in the comments!
