Synopsis:
[from goodreads.com]

Willow knows she’s different from other girls, and not just because she loves tinkering with cars. Willow has a gift. She can look into the future and know people’s dreams and hopes, their sorrows and regrets, just by touching them. She has no idea where this power comes from. But the assassin, Alex, does. Gorgeous, mysterious Alex knows more about Willow than Willow herself does. He knows that her powers link to dark and dangerous forces, and that he's one of the few humans left who can fight them. When Alex finds himself falling in love with his sworn enemy, he discovers that nothing is as it seems, least of all good and evil. In the first book in an action-packed romantic trilogy, L. A. Weatherly sends readers on a thrill ride of a road trip — and depicts the human race at the brink of a future as catastrophic as it is deceptively beautiful.

Review:

Willow has been different her entire life and it’s not because she dresses differently or has a passion for cars.  With just a touch she can see a person’s future, their feelings, and their past… She may not know where her abilities come from but she’s come to accept them. But there is someone who knows where Willow’s powers come from. Alex is an assassin. Barely an adult himself, he’s on the hunt for Willow because he knows the damage her powers can cause. Willow isn’t just psychic; she’s half angel.  Angels may be impossibly beautiful but they are deadly. They’ve taken everything away from Alex and he won’t stop fighting until his last breath. But neither Willow nor Alex is prepared for the powerful attraction they feel towards each other. The two go on a very dangerous and action-packed road trip where they discover that things are never as they seem and human existence is in more trouble than either had previously thought.

While I've never really gotten excited about any of the "Angel" books that are being published, this one may change my mind. Thanks for the awesome review.

This was surprisingly a good angel book. I had my doubts. While the beginning started off with a bang, it slowed down in the middle. It got a little too lovey for me, but still a great book overall.

with all the angel books coming out, i was surprised that Weatherly took a unique approach to the whole heavenly angels. we usually consider angels to be good, to protect. but in this book...it's the total opposite. i'm glad that Alex realized to move past what Willow is in order to find happiness...so looking forward for part two :)
