I received an ARC of this book with the option of leaving an honest review.

4.5 stars rounded up to 5.

At first, I wasn't too sure about Isabelle as a protagonist because she came across as a spoiled brat; however, as I learned more about her, she grew on me. Ezekiel did have a tendency to come across as a self-righteous and arrogant ass, and Isabelle made it her mission to knock him down a few pegs.

Thank you to NetGalley for my ARC in exchange for my honest review.

Let me start by saying that this is definitely not a YA novel, it is NA or adult and I thinks that it's misclassified on several sites.  Also, this is not a polished, perfected novel, it has not been edited by professionals and there are some mistakes and at times it makes it rough to read and seem somewhat silly.  However, I don't read books looking for perfection, especially books by new authors; if the book holds my attention and entertains me without me having to stop and reread and or reword it to do so I am happy. 

The author clearly states that her heroine is a snarky, bad-mouthed female and she is, but at times she carries it a little too far. Ezekiel is an angel, who...
