Bethany, an angel sent to Earth, and her mortal boyfriend, Xavier, have been to Hell and back. But now their love will be put to its highest test yet, as they defy Heavenly law and marry. They don't tell Beth's archangel siblings, Gabriel and Ivy, but the angels know soon enough, and punishment comes in a terrifying form: the Sevens, who are rogue angels bent on keeping Beth and Xavier apart, destroying Gabriel and Ivy, and darkening angelic power in the heavens.
The only way Bethany and Xavier can elude the Sevens is to hide in the open, and blend in with other mortals their own age. Gabriel and Ivy set them up at college, where they can't reveal their relationship, and where there is still danger around each corner. Will Bethany be called back to Heaven - for ever - and face leaving the love of her life? - via GoodReads
One of these days I’m going to learn that I don’t have to read everything or finish a series or even finish a book I’m not liking. One day. I’m unhealthily curious and want to know how things end up even when I’m not invested in the characters. If I remember correctly, in Heaven by Alexandra Adornetto I was looking for redemption for some pretty horrible shit that went down in Hades. Didn’t happen. Not even a little bit. Nope. Nadda.
Apparently when you’re a human who breaks the rules and doesn’t follow God and his law, you go to Hades and are left there to suffer for all eternity. When you’re an angel who goes against God’s laws for something you want it’s completely legit. This is how Adornetto’s logic works: if an angel walking the earth wants something bad enough it must be right or they wouldn’t feel that way, right? Oh wait. Bethany and Xavier’s relationship is so special it transcends all of Heaven’s and Earth’s laws.
I really don’t have anything nice to say about this book. The whole book is just pious drivel dressed up as young adult fiction. I’m sorry I wasted my time on this.
