Summery:Bethany, an angel sent to Earth, and her mortal boyfriend, Xavier, have been to Hell and back. But now their love will be put to its highest test yet, as they defy Heavenly law and marry. They don’t tell Beth’s archangel siblings, Gabriel and Ivy, but the angels know soon enough, and punishment comes in a terrifying form: the Sevens, who are rogue angels bent on keeping Beth and Xavier apart, destroying Gabriel and Ivy, and darkening angelic power in the heavens.

The only way Bethany and can elude the Sevens is to hide in the open, and blend in with other mortals their own age. Gabriel and Ivy set them up at college, where they can’t reveal their relationship, and where there is still danger around each corner. Will Bethany be called back to Heaven – forever – and face leaving the love of her life?




Heaven is my least favorite of the series, i just felt like it dragged on a little long, but when things started to get really interesting it was rushed. Heaven is the third book in the Halo series. Bethany is an angel sent to earth to protect it from evil, but she falls in love with a boy named Xavier. There lives are always in danger from hell to even heaven, Fate seems to always tear them apart. The Halo series is a lovely cute book about love and fighting for it. Not everyone is gonna like this series, if you’re not into the whole lovely dovey romance books, and yes some parts can get a little cheesy. My favorite of the series was Hades. I loved the whole darkness twist it took. But heaven was really predictable for the most parts.

Heaven starts off with Bethany and Xavier, they get married after they think it’s all over after freeing Bethany from Jake in hell. The heavens didn’t agree and sent the sevens after them. Getting married is going against the Angels laws. In each book they are always getting torn apart and battling against fate to be together. The ending of the book really disappointed me. I just wanted more. the series starts off great but heaven it just goes down from there. Some parts where just to boring. i wanted more of the action. Some parts even confused me like Molly’s boyfriend, Beth and Xavier go in hiding at a collage under different names, but at one point he calls name by there real names…Maybe a writers mistake? i don’t know. I also would’ve liked more of the story on Molly and her boyfriend. It also would of been nice if Molly and Gabe got together..that was the most disappointing thing in this whole freaking series. They hint to it but noting ever happens.

I do really love the covers! that’s what originally got me to read the series, and Heaven is really pretty. My Favorite is the first book Halo and the Hades cover was just freaking Awesome. I still enjoyed the series but just wasn’t my favorite. it was an okay read to say the least.
