ANGEL by L.A. Weatherly
In a world where angels are beyond redemption, Alex thinks he's found one that might deserve mercy. Alex is a ruthless assassin - of angels. Forget everything you've heard about them before. Angels are not benign celestial creatures, but fierce stalkers whose irresistible force allows them to feed off humans, draining them of their vitality until there is barely anything left. As far as Alex is concerned, the only good angel is a dead angel...until he meets Willow. She may look like a normal teenager but Willow is no ordinary girl. Half-angel, half-human, Willow may hold the key to defeating the evil angels. But as the hunter and the hunted embark on an epic and dangerous journey and Willow learns the dark and terrifying secrets of her past, Alex finds himself drawn to Willow...with devastating consequences. Eoin Colfer reinvented the fairy, Stephenie Meyer reinvented the vampire, L.A. Weatherly reinvents the angel! This is a heart-pounding, knuckle-whitening, paranormal romance action-adventure for fans of the "Twilight" series. This is the first in a devastating new trilogy. (Goodreads)

I enjoyed reading it when I finally got into the story. The first few chapters were slow going for me. As the story progressed and Willow finally met Alex, things became much more interesting. Willow finds herself in a precarious situation. She finds that she possesses more than one secret that will make her a wanted woman. She is a unique young lady with an interesting family life.

Alex is the usual tall, dark, and handsome love interest. He is interested in Willow for reasons that she does not know, and quite possibly, does not want to know. He finds himself questioning things that he has been raised to never question.

By the end of the story, I was hooked. I look forward to the following books in this trilogy. L. A. Weatherly wrote an intriguing fantasy that will change the way you think about angels.
