Summery: Kissed by an angel is about a grill named Ivy. Ivy's mother is just getting remarried to the richest guy in the town, who's son is in the very popular crowd. Ivy meets Tristan, I'm not going to say much and spoil it but Ivy has a thing for angel statues. She's not a church religion loving person she just likes the idea that angels are watching over her, which is huge with the book. They, Tristan and Ivy, date and fall in love but on one night driving to a restaurant there's an accident and Tristan dies but isn't gone for good, he becomes and angel. He's not sure what he's supposed to do, as no angel really is. Ivy has a hard time copping with Tristan's death but finds comfort in her stepbrother and friends. But something is wrong. Someone is out to get Ivy and she doesn't no why. Tristan figures this out as well and wants to save Ivy and let her know that he's there. It's a mystery mixed with a love story.
I probably read this book about 2 years ago but I remember really liking it. One of my best friends mom's, who loves to read, actually saw me with this and she was reading it at the same time so we discussed it. (I love discussing books with physical in-person people) It wasn't really weired because she is kind of an easy person to talk to a relate with. Anyway we both loved it. The plot was good. If you don't like total romance stories than this could be a book for you because it has a lot of mystery and suspense to it. It was a bittersweet book that I liked a lot. I admit to falling in love with Tristan, not the type of guy I would normally go for in real life or a book but his character was very sincere, and just a good character. I like Ivy, she was another really good character/person. She's one of those people at school who, if you need one word to describe them, would be nice and loyal, ok so that's two words but they really describe her. The other characters are also good. But Tristan was my all time favorite in this book. The plot was good and kept me reading not through the night but I still finished in about a week. There were lots of surprises at the end some good some bad. Overall I did enjoy it but the end was bittersweet for me, more bitter than sweet. What's really exciting is there's going to be another book in the series! I really hope in this book I get the ending I wanted so bad!I will definitely read it again! A really good angel book!
