Glass Heart (Cold Kiss, #2)

Wren can do things that other people can only dream of. Make it snow on a clear, crisp day. Fly through an abandoned tunnel. Bring a paper bird to life.

Wren knows her abilities are tinged with danger--knows how easy it is to lose control--but she can't resist the intoxicating rush. And now that she has Gabriel by her side, someone who knows what she can do--what she "has" done--she finally feels free to be herself.

But as Wren explores the possibilities of her simmering powers, Gabriel starts pushing her away. Telling her to be careful. Telling her to "stop." The more he cautions her, the more determined Wren becomes to prove that she can handle things on her own. And by the time she realizes that Gabriel may be right, it could be too late to bring him back to her side.

Goodreads Summary

Glass Heart starts off a little after the first book. The premise of this plot is more about Wren’s powers than relationships. There is more of a focus on the paranormal aspect.  Wren is one of those teenagers where you say, "don't do this" and in retaliation they do it anyway. It gets her in trouble most of the time, but what really caught my eye was how patient Gabriel was. No matter what he loves Wren unconditionally, and they make a great power couple. Wren is more spontaneous while Gabriel keeps her in check, which is adorable. Just because this book focuses more on paranormal does not mean the romance isn't there, you'll definitely find some make out scenes.
The only critique I give is how slow the plot moved. I had to skim pages that didn't need to be in the book, it was very repetitive. Wren did sometimes get on my nerves... you just want to smack her for the decisions she made. Gabriel saves her from herself, so that makes it better. Honestly, I believe Gabriel steals the book. It's probably because I want him as a boyfriend and the romance is hot, but without him I don't think I'd like it as much.
If you liked the first book I would say read the second. It has its ups and downs, but you'll still love it. Wren and Gabriel are a strong couple and you'll always root for them no matter what. Her powers have started growing and in the end you'll want to know more about her. I'm picking up the third book and can't wait for it to come out!
