I love me some Roth =D
Loved this book! I love how different this book is from everything else I have read. I loved the paranormalness to it and how the world they live in works. The storyline was wonderful and kept me sucked in the whole time, especially with all the plot twists. I knew this book was funny, but I forgot just how funny until I read it a second time. Layla is a wonderful main character. She's strong, determined, caring, and funny. It was really easy to empathize with her and want the best for her. Zayne is a good character as well. I enjoyed learning about his and Layla's relationship, with it's many ups and downs. Roth on the other hand is just completely wonderful. He is easily my favorite JLA character, which is saying something seeing as how many characters she actually has. He is also one of my all time favorite characters out of everything I have read. He is absolutely hilarious! The relationship he has with Layla is complicated, but highly entertaining yet sweet and cute at times. I definitely recommend this book to people who like angel/demon type paranormal books with a side of romance.
The book is ok to read. I recommend it to read on a boring afternoon.
