More like 3.5 stars. I really like the world of the book with its unique take on angels and vampires. I liked the main character, Elena, and Raphael was alright. I'm not into super-arrogant menfolk though it was fun to see Elena take him down a notch or two. Sometimes the characters' actions felt a little random to me so that took away from it a little. Also, maybe this is because I listened to it, but certain words or phrases were repeated a little too much. I did like the ending though I think it got drawn out a bit because I knew what had happened before the characters did. Overall, a fun romp and I am interested to see what happens with the main couple. I'm also hoping to learn more about Elena's past which had many intriguing references throughout this book.
