Although this book didn't live up to the first, I still enjoyed it. I felt like we got to know the characters better. This series is very interesting and the use of suspense is good.
Bethany: Someone might hate me for saying this but Bethany seems to be getting stupider with time. At first it was cute but now it's just maddening. I wish that she wasn't marrying Xavier in a way because welll that could cause like a million problems! Maybe somewhere deep down she felt something for Jake Thorn.
Xavier: He is an amazing bf and he would protect her against everything. It take a real man to propose the way he did. He must really love Beth. He never gave up :')
Gabriel: I think he loves Molly but he doesn't want to lose his status as an archangel and infuriate Heavan. They would be soooo goood together though!
Ivy: She is the best big sister ever. She understand why Beth loves Xavier and the best thing is she's a strong woman.
Molly: She really loves Gab and they are so sweet. I wish that it would have worked out. But am I the only one that noticed that when they broke into hell... she was missing? Like where the hell was she? Did they just leave her behind and the motel or did I just miss something major.
Jake: He might have actually felt passion for Beth and at the end I think it was him rumbling the earth because he was mad at Xavier for his proposal and Berthany's approval.
Favourite/Memorable Lines and Moments:
" 'I was so wasted I don't remember a damn thing,' Lawson declared.
'I remember you tried to hook up with me,' replied a boy named Wesley in his lilting accent. He contorted his face into a grimace.
'Whatever... it was dark. You could do alot worse.'
'Not funny,' Wesley growled. 'Someone posted a picture on Facebook. What am I gonna tell Jess?'
'Tell her you couldn't resist Lawson's ripped body.' Xavier thumped his friend on the back as he sauntered past. 'He's really built from all those hours on the PlayStation.' "
" 'Oh, Bethany, relax. We're used to the PDAs by now.'
'Where did you learn that?' I asked curiously. I'd never heard Ivy use abbreviated colloquialisms. Her formal speech usually sounded so out of place in the modern world.
'I do spend time with young people, you know,' she said. 'I'm trying to be hip.'
Gabriel and I burst out laughing."
" 'But don't let them talk you into anything you don't feel comfortable with.'
'They're my friends.'
'So what?' He shrugged. 'If your friends walked off a cliff, would you do it too?'
'Why would they walk off a cliff?' I asked in alarm. 'Is someone having problems at home?' "
" When Xavier arrived he was dressed as a cowboy in faded jeans, tan boots and a checkered shirt. he even wore a leather cowboy hat.
'Trick or treat?' he said with a grin.
'No offence, but you don't look anything like Batman.'
'Aint no need to be nasty now ma'am,' Xavier said, adopting a heavy Texan accent. 'Are you ready to go? Our ride's awaitin' '
I laughed. 'You're going to keep this up all night aren't you?'
'Probably,' Xavier said. 'I'm driving you wild with desire aren't I?' My brother coughed to remind us of his presence."
"Larissa bared er teeth in a smile before grabbing a tight hold of my wrist and turning it upward. Her grip a cold and claw-like, but I tried not flinch. She held my wrist faceup as Elliott pressed something down on the inside. I braced myself to feel pain, but when I looked, he'd only left an inky imprint behind. It was a stamp of admittance in the form of a smiley face. "
" 'So what's with the Mary Sue outfit ?' Asia asked, plucking at the frilly sleeve of my dress. 'You got some fetish for Southern belles? It's very pure. That's what this is all about, right? But did you really have to dress her like she's twelve?'
'No one dressed me,' I snapped.
'Oh, how cute!' Asia threw me a scathing look. 'It talks.' "
"I wanted to reach out and take his face in my hands, to tell him that I was okay- trapped, lonely and miserable but otherwise unharmed."
" 'University of Alabama?' I asked. 'Molly and the girls have applied there. They want to be sorority sisters.'
'Another three years with Molly?' Xavier wrinkled his nose teasingly."
" 'I don't know what happened between you and Beth, but it can't be so bad.'
Xavier let out a short, humourless laugh and I guessed what he was thinking. He want to say, 'Well, Mom, my girlfriend was abducted by a demon ex-student of Bryce Hamilton and dragged into Hell on the back of a motorbike and right now we've got no idea how to bring back. So, yeah, actually it is that bad.' "
" 'Bethany's friend or not, this girl could make a preacher cuss.' "
" 'You won't handle anything.' Gabriel's tone was chilling. 'Is that clear? Control your raging testosterone for a minute and listen. I know you want Beth back- we all do- but acting like some comic-book hero isn't going to help.' "
" 'I just always imagine it would be with him,' I murmured almost to myself.
'I know,' Jake said, his voice drenched with exaggerated sympathy. 'And usually I'd be more than open to the prospect of a threesome, but under such circumstances I think it might be a little awkward.' '
" 'Michael wouldn't send us on a wild goose chase,' Ivy murmured. 'There must be something he wants us to do.'
'Or maybe he's just a douche.'
'Indeed,' said a disembodied voice behind them."
