A boy, a secret, a death.
I only wanted one thing: A good guy to love me.

Guess which one I got?
The thing I wanted: Her.
The thing I didn't want: To feel.
But here we are.
*** A Young Adult Paranormal Romance That is Not Your Typical Vampire Story. It's actually Not a Vampire Story at All. ***
Hope Walker always lived in Promise Land, the most boring town one could live. That was until the brooding and mysterious Samael Legions moved to town, and Hope's life took a thrilling and terrifying turn. Samael had always managed to keep his identity a secret. That was until Hope entered his life and changed everything. The young lovers find themselves balancing precariously on a cliff that's slowly giving away under their feet. If you're a fan of epic love, then you'll enjoy this captivating story of a love that defies logic.
Samael didn’t know how Hope would feel about the fact he had already met her parents. Actually, Dan and he had spent many hours together. Samael did it to keep Dan ignorant about what was truly going on around him. It was an added benefit that he got to hear all about Hope in the process.
Samael leaned on the doorframe and accidentally hit the doorbell. “Crap,” he whispered to himself. He had never been clumsy in his life, but she had knocked him totally off-kilter.
Hope slung the door open and took his breath away. She was yanking at her clothes with one hand and fussing with a strand of her hair with the other. Samael was rendered useless. The new feelings he was experiencing surged. He had to pull himself together, so he didn’t scare her off.

But she was.READ MORE
Samael gave her his uneven dazzling smile to hide his emotions.
“Hey, Angel. Do I get to come in, or are you going to keep running from me?” He winked, knowing his nerves couldn’t handle hearing no.
“I’m not running from you anymore.”
“I don’t know. You, little lady, are good at running. Are you going to ask me in?”
“Why don’t you come in?” Hope asked.
“You really should be careful who you invite into your home,” he warned as he stepped into the house.
“Why? Are you going to hurt me?” Hope asked, then sunk her teeth deep into her lip.
“Never, but some people are not as trustworthy.” Samael glared down at Hope. “When sin knocks, don’t answer.” He gripped both of her hands in his. It amazed him how one small touch from her could set his skin on fire.
“I’ll try to remember that,” Hope said.COLLAPSE

This book was awesome, great storyline, great characters. I thought he was a vampire, huh, fooled me. They had so many trials, mostly because of who & what he was, but their love overcame all. Lots of tears & tissues, some of it was really sad. Is there another, would love to see them complete their story. Absolutely loved it, wish there was more.
I really enjoyed this book. A great mystery and love story, with a surprise ending. Will be buying JM Worthington books. Five stars!
