HALO by Alexendra Adornetto

Halo (Halo, #1)
Three angels- Gabriel, the warrior; Ivy, the healer; and Bethany, the youngest and most human- are sent by Heaven to bring good to a world falling under the influence of darkness. They must work hard to conceal their luminous glow, superhuman powers, and, most dangerous of all, their wings, all the while avoiding all human attachments.

Then Bethany meets Xavier Woods, and neither of them is able to resist the attraction between them. Gabriel and Ivy do everything in their power to intervene, but the bond between Xavier and Bethany seems too strong.

The angel’s mission is urgent, and dark forces are threatening. Will love ruin Bethany or save her? (GoodReads)

I actually enjoyed reading Halo. Maybe its because of angels that's why I love the book.. Oh well, halo didn't disappoint. It is a well crafted book (and I am really surprised that alexandra is just 18) that I really can't wait to finish it but at the same time wishing that those 500 pages will stretch longer.. Bethany, Gabriel, and Ivy are the angels in this book who has a mission to maintain peace and order on earth. But of course, the story plot focuses more on the love story of Bethany and Xavier (the human). But honestly, I really didn't feel the connection between bethany and xavier. I think that their romance were kinda rushed. It's like they've seen each other one day and then the next day, BAM! They are so in love that they can't function anymore without each other. I really didn't buy it. Maybe I am more interested with Gabriel because he is so so mysterious and gorgeous too! But nonetheless Halo is such a wondrous read that I found myself asking for more. Will definitely read HADES
