Goodreads Blurb: How does a girl choose between the one who steals her heart and the one who owns her soul?
Matt and Emily were created for a specific job. Raised and trained as the ultimate angel/warrior team, they are sent down to save, defend, judge and forgive, depending on the 'life' they've been assigned. What they don't realize is that the power of human emotions, such as love, anger, passion and fear can take over even the best of souls, causing them to make mistakes and follow paths that lead to confusion and heartache.
When the reason for their training is finally revealed, the angel/warrior team find themselves thrust into a world they know nothing about. Matt takes over the life of Daniel, a young man with a great deal of baggage. Emily becomes Liz, a girl living in a remote village who relies on nothing more than her own strength to survive. A violent storm erupts one night, and framed in the window of Liz's establishment is a frightening face. Let in by the soul of a Good Samaritan, the two visitors bring with them a past full of secrets that could literally change an angel's path and a warrior's plans.
From murder to redemption, this angel/warrior team must find a way to keep the faith they have in each other in a world that's ripping them apart.

My Review:
I love this cover! This marble angel statue, while it's acutally a real angel, and this heart-shape in cracks... Someone really thought this through, so I am giving credit and kudos for that!
The story was... a little confusing at first, but just because you don't know the reason the characters ended up there, but then the topic gets 'dismissed' for now and the story is told in retrospect. I love retrospect and flashbacks! so I was totally up for that. And, oh boy, that was some story! It had everything from 'ridiculous' fate over confusion and a lot of humor to true love, more or less dark secrets, justice, rebellion and broken hearts.
Personally, although I thought this whole fate-thing is a little overdone in literature nowadays, it didn't bother me here because this was actually set up as a story of faith, angels and God's interference. Since fate is definitively a part of that, you can't really grumble about how this story started out. However, I still thought it was good that it was only the beginning, and then the characters made their own choices and determined the course of events to follow, because I am not Christian - or religious at all, for that matter -, and I'd usually avoid stories that are too hung up on God/religion/faith in anything other than yourself. Thus, I especially liked how the angel/warrior team turned out in the end, because they're not the same as when they were send down to earth, Emily way more so than Matt. Those second lives they had to live had a huge impact on them, farther shaped they personalities - and kind of rips them apart.
But this first book was only their first life on earth, and it was hinted that the second would be the one that explained the beginning, the whole conflict, properly, so I am looking forward to this!

Quotes I liked:

“I mean...your words are really the only things that are rightfully yours. Who else would know them better?”

“I never understood men. You boys long for freedom and then spend the rest of your lives looking for someone to take care of you and give you the things you didn't want in the first place. I hope to never have a son. I would have to hit him over the head, and beg the good Lord to take him back and insert a brain.
