ANGEL EYES

Brielle’s a ballerina who went to the city to chase her dreams and found tragedy instead. She’s come home to shabby little Stratus, Oregon, to live with her grief and her guilt . . . and the incredible, numbing cold she can’t seem to shake.

Jake’s the new guy at school. The boy next door with burning hands and an unbelievable gift that targets him for corruption.

Something more than fate has brought them together. An evil bigger than both of them lurks in the shadows nearby, hiding in plain sight. Two angels stand guard, unsure what’s going to happen. And a beauty brighter than Jake or Brielle has ever seen is calling them to join the battle in a realm where all human choices start.

A realm that only angels and demons—and Brielle—can perceive.

(MY THOUGHTS)
  Angel Eyes is a beautiful novel. Shannon Dittemore is truly a gifted writer. She’s reminded me that God is exciting. With so many Christian books being boring, Dittemore’s Angel Eyes was like a refreshing, cool drink of water. Dittemore also gave me a beautiful romance with Brielle and Jake. I love the way Jake cherishes Brielle. His love for her came from the heart with caring and tenderness, and Jake always treats Brielle with respected and praised her for being her own individual and independent self in making her choices. But with the cliffhanger ending that Dittemore left me hanging with Jake and Brielle's relationship, I have a feeling Jake's faith and love for Brielle is going to be put to the test in the sequel Broken Wings. I also really enjoyed Angel Eyes being told from Brielle, Jake's guardian angel Canaan, and the demon Damien's point of view, and the last chapter starts the sequel off in Jack's point of view. I have always loved when an author does this, it makes the story a more intriguing read for me. And I love Jake's character, especially when Brielle says, he’s HOT! (literally) I'm really going to enjoy Jake's perspective: seeing his feelings and how he thinks in Broken Wings.

Brielle's seventeen and a ballerina. She’s been away from home for the last two years at an art school in the city. After the murder of Ali, her best friend at the art school, Brielle comes back home to a small town life and her father. But now she lives in coldness, the coldness of guilt and unable to forgive herself for not protecting her friend. She saw the bruises on Ali and she didn't tell anyone. And when Ali's boyfriend escapes from jail, she fears for her own life now, too. Brielle knows what she saw and she’s ready to tell the truth even if it’s too late to save her best friend's life, because it’s not too late for justice. But does Brielle really know the truth? And when she does see the truth, will she have enough love to believe, or will she choose her hate?

Jake is the new guy who's moved next door to Brielle. He is definitely hot in more ways than one, and how many strong, gorgeous guys are willing to wear a tutu just to spend more time with a girl? I love the way Brielle and Jake meet. There's nothing like a girl beating her chest like a gorilla and howling to impress the new hot guy in town. Works every time. Except Brielle didn't know the new guy was watching her, and when Jake gets caught laughing at her, Brielle gives him a lot of altitude. But Jake is willing to take Brielle's altitude and much more…including her heart.

Angel Eyes is about evil, hate, forgiveness, but it’s also about the gift of love and the truth of that love setting you free. I recommend Angel Eyes as a beautiful, heart-moving read.
