Millennia ago, he fell from heaven for her.  Can he face her without falling again?

Fascinated with ancient civilizations, seventeen-year-old Mia Crawford dreams of becoming an archaeologist. She also
dreams of wings--soft and silent like snow--and somebody trying to steal them.

When a horrible creature appears out of thin air and attacks her,
she knows Michael Fontaine is involved, though he claims to know nothing about it. Secretive and aloof, Michael evokes feelings in Mia that she doesn’t understand. Images of another time and place haunt her. She recognizes them—but not from any textbook.

In search of the truth, Mia discovers a past life of forbidden love, jealousy and revenge that tore an angel from Heaven and sent her to an early grave. Now that her soul has returned, does she
have a chance at loving that angel again? Or will an age-old nemesis destroy them both?

Ancient history is only the beginning.

My Thoughts:
I loved this book! If you're a fan of Romance, than you must read The Watcher- it's busting with it!

Mia was a great narrator and a very relatable heroine. I really enjoyed experiencing the story through her point of view.

Michael...well I fell pretty hard for this man. He's an angelic, masculine beauty about him, that appealed to both Mia and I haha. Although I should admit that I was frustrated with him through a good portion of The Watcher. I understand why he remained mysterious and distanced himself from Mia, for her own protection, but I kind of wanted to encourage Mia to grab hold of him and shake him down for answers.

The chemistry and romance between these two was electrifying and LITERALLY spans many centuries and lifetimes. I was so jealous of the relationship and emotions these two share for each other, and Lisa does a great job of creating such sweet, tender and steamy moments, between these two, that warmed my heart.

I really loved Damiel as well! He has that Damon/Wes quality about him, he's definitely been labelled the resident bad boy, but he has many layers to him. And you just want to be the one to redeem him! haha.

The pacing of the plot was great and well thought out, and the ending leaves an opening for more but gives you enough resolution that you want to throw your kindle/book against the wall. Kindles everywhere are thanking you Lisa! haha

The only complaint I have is that I thought it was kind of in poor taste for Mia and her friends to continue their plans to go to the movies (you have to read the book to understand my meaning behind this).

Romance fans read this book, you won't be disappointed!

Happy Reading!!!
