About the Book:
Teen angel, Persephone, is the only one in all of Heaven who can’t sing. In fact, her name literally means “Voice of Destruction.” So diving down one of Heaven’s portals, straight into singer Taylor Hamilton’s bedroom, seems like a good idea at the time. Maybe, just maybe, he can help. Plus, he is sooo cute!
While it can be fun swooning over a mortal, it can also be frustrating. Angels aren’t supposed to fall for mortals. Then there’s Taylor’s guardian angel, who is ready to sabotage the budding romance at every turn. Will Persephone learn to sing before Heaven calls her back? And, most importantly, can love prevail for an angel who has fallen head-over-wings for a mortal?

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This book is precisely what it looks like. It is a light, clean romance about a teenage angel falling to earth to be with a mortal boy. The romance is sweet and perfectly clean. There are a couple of very chaste kisses that happen. The characters are a bit shallow, but generally likeable. The plot is predictable yet still enjoyable.
I would have liked to see the writing and the characters a little more developed. While the feel of the book was very light and breezy, it almost felt under-developed. Almost. I still enjoyed the story quite a bit and I plan on reading more of Molly’s work.
If you are looking for something light, clean, and fun, this is a good choice. This is a good book to read on an afternoon when you just want a feel-good story. This book will appeal to tween and teen readers.
The Cover: So adorable! I love the colors and the placement of the girl. The title design is perfect for the book, too.
