I met someone who changed everything. Matthias. My autistic sister's guardian angel. Honest. Inspiring. Funny. Hot. And immortal. That was the problem. What could I do? I did what any other girl would do-I fell in love with him. Zoe's sister darts in front of cars. Her brother's a pothead. Her parents are so overwhelmed; they don't see Zoe lost in her broken life. Zoe escapes the only way she knows how: partying. Matthias, a guardian sent from Heaven, watches over Zoe's autistic sister. After Zoe is convinced he's legit, angel and lost girl come together in a love that changes destiny. But Heaven on Earth can't last forever.

     Heavenly. The title says all that I feel about this book. It was simply amazing. Jennifer Laurens writing style kept me hooked till the very end. It was absolutely AMAZING. The characters kept you drawn to the story. Each making you think of something new. Heavenly was both suspenseful and romantic. If YOU HAVEN'T read it yet I suggest you pick it up right away.

     First lets talk characters. The two main characters are Zoe and Matthias. Matthias is the guardian angel of Zoe's autistic sister. But after a couple more visits Zoe falls in love with him. Zoe is an independent person. She is just your average teenage girl. and she loves to party and has that one BFF. Zoe's story follows her life after meeting Matthias for the first time . After Zoe meets him everything becomes a 100 MPH bullet train. Matthias is an angel if you haven't caught on by now. He died in the roaring twenty's which means he uses words like "bearcat" . He has an interesting story about his past which will have you entranced . He is a nice guy and has changed after his crazy life before "angel-dome". The story of these two will have you craving for more. Especially after that ending.
     The writing style of Jeniffer Laurens was amazing. I loved the way she wrote. She had descriptive aspects but they weren't overly descriptive. Each character was uniques in their own way. The main character Zoe developed the most in the story. She went from almost hating her sister to developing a new love for her.  Each character had its own voice. The writing style of Jennifer Laurens is suspenseful and even leaves you thinking what happened next days after finishing the book.
     Overall Heavenly was an awesome read. I loved the way it was written, the characters , and the story in all. The idea was original and I hadn't read a book like it before. There is nothing to compare Heavenly to. It added romance, suspense, and action to make an absolutely amazing read and something I will talk about forever.I am starving for Penitence and will read it soon.
