What's a girl to do when meeting The One means she's cursed to die a horrible death?
Life hasn't been easy on sixteen-year-old Emma Conner, so a new start in New York may be just the change she needs. But the posh Upper East Side prep school she has to attend? Not so much. Friendly faces are few and far between, except for one that she's irresistibly drawn to—Brendan Salinger, the guy with the rock-star good looks and the richest kid in school, who might just be her very own white knight.
But even when Brendan inexplicably turns cold, Emma can't stop staring. Ever since she laid eyes on him, strange things have been happening. Streetlamps go out wherever she walks, and Emma's been having the oddest dreams: visions of herself in past lives—visions that warn her to stay away from Brendan. Or else.

I really enjoyed this book, just like I knew I would. Although the book blurb made it sound like Fallen without the angels something that had been done before, I still wanted to chance it and see what all the hype was about from the other reviewers. So I recieved my copy and began reading it as soon as I could. It was one book I could not put down. There were many things I liked about the book. One of the big things I loved was Emma's sense of humor and sarcastic nature. It reminded me of myself. I also loved the love story. Their love is so real and magical (no pun intended) and Schultz defintely made Brendan swoon-worthy. This brings me to another point. Although romance played a huge role in this book, Schultz does not over do it and they are not instantly in love. There is a kind of "run around" in the initial stages of the relationship and I appreciated that. I love a good fight for the one you truly love. As for things I didn't like, there wasn't many, just one small thing.... With me being an English minor, I caught a few editing mistakes, but I'll just say that was due to it being an ebook ARC.
Overall, I give this **** (4 out of 5)
