Summary:

Since man first walked the earth, the Angels of Moirai have watched over them. Born human, they are taught never to feel, never to become attached, and never to become emotionally compromised.
Eighteen-year-old Lila Kingston is haunted by dreams of a mysterious angel. Suddenly the dramas of her broken family and the snobby rich kids at her school fail in comparison to the challenges she must face.
Hailing from the Angels of Moirai, James Taylor has been entrusted with the fate of lives from around the world for over a thousand years. His sole purpose is to ensure every mortal follows their designated path, but when Lila puts that very purpose at risk, he must make a choice—a choice that ultimately leads to the devastating consequences of a love never meant to exist.
The choice was never easy. Those kind of choices never are…
Review:
*The publisher provided this book in exchange for an honest review through NetGalley.*
Eighteen-year-old Lila has been rejected by her parents and is currently dreaming about a  mysterious angel. She is shocked when she arrives to school one day and sees that angel standing in the parking lot.
James Taylor is an Angel of Moirar, he has been taught never to feel and only obey the Creator's ordeers, while assuring the fate of lives from around the world during over a thousand years. His only purpose is to assure that mortals follow their destiny. What he wasn't counting on was to fall in love with Lila, a mortal.
What will they do when their love wasn't supposed to happen?
This book has some problems in the begginning, despite the fact that the story has an enormous potencial it feels like it advances too quickly and there are some connective scenes missing. I love stories about love at first sight but this happenned way too quickly!
I'm not saying that the characthers are not interesting, because they are. Lila's familiar dynamic is all but normal and her mind is quite interesting, as it is discovering who James is and his story. I loved them and all the side characthers that make this story so beautiful.
The writing was ok, it had some repetitions where they weren't necessary but it wasn't anything very bad. The descriptions and the ambiance where very interesting and captivating.
I have to congratulate the author on her ability to mix several beliefs and create the Angels of Moirai!
Taking everything into account this book was good and the story too even though it had it's flaws so I'm planning on giving the next book a chance, I hope it will be better and I'm very curious to see what comes next for these two lovers.
This  is a good book to all YA fans who like books about angels and love! Give it a try because the story is very good and interesting!
