"Ridley Heller thought her life would be perfect and trouble-free once she had Bo back. Unfortunately, she couldn’t have been more wrong. Learning Bo’s true identity has left them with their most difficult decision yet. They have two options. One, they can run away together and spend eternity looking over their shoulder, hiding from both God and Sebastian. Or, two, they can find a way to kill Sebastian. Ridley feels like there’s really only one choice, but killing Sebastian has a major down side for her—it will leave Bo mortal and her a vampire. She’ll be doomed to walk the earth alone for all eternity.

What will they choose? And who will have to die in order to see their goal accomplished? Find out in the exciting conclusion of the Blood Like Poison series, To Kill An Angel."

My Thoughts:

It is no secret that Leighton is one of my favorite authors and this book just solidified that fact even more. This is the first paranormal series I have read from her and now I am itching to get my hands on some more. She just knows how to tell a great story, simple as that. From page one I was absorbed and I finished this book in a matter of hours. 

Ridley has come a very long way from the girl we met in the first book. She has become so strong and she is willing to do anything for those she loves. In the first book she came across as a bit weak and timid and clearly caught up in things way over her head, now she faces these things head on and is willing to deal with whatever necessary to stay a part of Bo’s life. I really came to love her character over the course of this book. 

I fell in love with Bo in the first book, but there was just something really spectacular about him in this book. He seemed to open up a bit more and he wasn’t as reserved as he once was. This really added just something extra to his personality. He didn’t spend time trying to stay away from Ridley and has accepted that he makes her life better not worse. He wasn’t as broody and we really got to see his lighter side. I loved him when he was joking and witty. 

The romance between Ridley and Bo is taken to new levels in this book. It began as very innocent and sweet, but now it is so much more. It is still sweet, but it is also fiery and passionate. It is strikingly clear how much they love one another and their devotion is just something I loved reading about. 

I think my favorite thing about this series is the way Leighton took two of my favorite paranormal creatures and combined them into one world seemingly effortlessly. She took vampires and angels and somehow wove them together. I loved how she combined the two histories. When authors try to do this, it doesn’t always work so well for the story, but with this series it just made it better. 

I am so very glad I finally got around to reading this series because I really loved it. Leighton wrapped up the series really well and I adored the ending. *sigh* This is a series I would definitely love to relive again.
