Heaven Help Her.
Bethany Church is an angel sent to Earth to keep dark forces at bay. Falling in love was never part of her mission, but the bond between Beth and her mortal boyfriend, Xavier Woods, is undeniably strong. But even Xavier’s love, and the care of her archangel siblings, Gabriel and Ivy, can’t keep Beth from being tricked into a motorcycle ride that ends up in Hell. There, the demon Jake Thorn bargains for Beth’s release back to Earth. But what he asks of her will destroy her, and quite possibly, her loved ones, as well.
OK first let me start out by saying I will always give a book a chance. Sometimes it may take me a little longer to read a book because I'm not 100% committed. But I will always finish it. I know there have been mixed reviews about this series and I too have had very mixed feelings about this series from the beginning. Some parts are better than others, but like I said I always have to finish the book. I think it's the goody goody aspect of the characters which I just don't find believable, at least not in this day and age. But then again Angels are supposed to be beings that humans just can't understand right. Anyway on to the book. We find that Jake comes back and kidnaps Beth and takes her to hell where his plan is to get Bethany to be his princess in the underworld. Of course she doesn't want to because she is in love with Xavier. Well throughout the book she projects herself from Hades to where Xavier is and follows on their journey on finding her in hades. They are in search of a portal and first need to go through a possessed nun and an archangel who they don't know if he wants to or doesn't want to help them. Lucifer just wants to bring on the Apocalypse but he's not really in the book that much. It's more about Jake's obsession with Bethany. Again mixed reviews, some parts were better than others.
