Heaven by Alexandra Adornetto

Saturday, September 29, 2012
Only sixteen when she started the series, Ally Adornetto knows how teen hearts beat, and this long-awaited conclusion is certain to be her most popular book yet.
Bethany, an angel sent to Earth, and her mortal boyfriend, Xavier, have been to Hell and back. But now their love will be put to its highest test yet, as they defy Heavenly law and marry. They don’t tell Beth’s archangel siblings, Gabriel and Ivy, but the angels know soon enough, and punishment comes in a terrifying form: the Sevens, who are rogue angels bent on keeping Beth and Xavier apart, destroying Gabriel and Ivy, and darkening angelic power in the heavens.
The only way Bethany and can elude the Sevens is to hide in the open, and blend in with other mortals their own age. Gabriel and Ivy set them up at college, where they can’t reveal their relationship, and where there is still danger around each corner. Will Bethany be called back to Heaven – forever – and face leaving the love of her life?

Goodreads Summary

For readers who enjoyed the first two books, this one will be a treat.  Bethany and Xavier have been working to stay together and keep their love alive despite all odds.  When they decide to marry, the have crossed a line that no angel has crossed before.  Bethany is in immediate danger and the book follows her attempts to remain with her love and stay alive.  With the Sevens, a group of angels who hate the idea of Bethany and Xavier together, hot on her trail, Bethany must make quick decisions to remain on top. 

The characters were so much fun in this book.  They truly feel like real people; the only character who started to get annoying was Bethany.  She defies heavenly law when she marries and then continues to put her friends in danger.  She is more than a little whiny halfway through the book.  However, a reader who enjoyed this book previously will likely not mind a few dramatics.  Xavier is sweet in his constant love for Bethany.  He sticks with his true love no matter the cost.  Gabriel and Ivy displayed bravery and love when they decide to help Bethany in any way they can.  However, it isn't really up to Bethany, she may be recalled and forced to leave Xavier.

Between the high action and desperate love, this book is sure to be a fast read despite it's long length.  Heaven is recommended to young adult readers.

    This is sitting on my bedside table and I intend to get to it after I read RIFT (Cremer). I love Bethanny & I'm not sure if I'm ready to get annoyed by her. LOL
