Dawn Huntington wants what every girl wants, a sweet sixteen birthday party with her friends, family, and some hot boys, but fate has other plans. On the night of Dawn's sixteenth birthday, she witnesses a crime she can't turn her back on, and the decisions she makes that night will change her life forever.
Never having been confronted with such violence, Dawn turns to a mysterious and beautiful boy named Angelo, only she can't remember what happens that night. To make things more complicated, Dawn is in a relationship with Angelo's complete opposite, Nate. Dawn doesn't want to hurt Nate, yet she can't shake her feelings for Angelo, even when she can't help but feel he's hiding something from her, and it could be something dark. Why is Angelo acting so weird around Bonita? Are they together? Are they really only friends?
Angelo may be trouble, but Dawn can't ignore her feelings for him. Dawn is at a crossroads. Should she choose love? Or friendship? Once Dawn finally finds the courage to choose, she thinks the drama is over. But Dawn wasn't expecting her choices to have such dire consequences.
Do you believe in love at first sight? But can one trust someone blindly? Can love overcome all the obstacles?
Is friendship just the beginning of love?
I love Komali Da Silva's writing!!! She is very talented. The story flowed well for the most part, and I enjoyed getting to know Dawn.
Her secondary characters were well developed and I loved them as well. Of course, who wouldn't like Asima? She's loyal, supernatural, and full of spunk.
Nate even had a special place in my heart. I felt really bad for the guy. He went through so much in this book.
Jan was a little harder to like, but I came around eventually.
Bonita, there are just no words. None.
I really wanted to like Angelo, but even though he's a good guy, it's disappointing how everything with him worked itself out. I don't think he should have even entered Dawn's life.
As for the incident that happened at the beginning of the book, I thought more would be explained as the story went on, but no. I had hoped for more information there.
Overall, I loved the book. I felt the author should have clarified some things a little more before the end of the book, but otherwise it was a fantastic four star read!
THE EAGERLY AWAITED SEQUEL TO
She should've known better than to hope her life could be normal after losing her best friend Nate. It’s hard enough to deal with the loss but now she “sees” him everywhere. Add that to meeting Gabe, the new guy who sends her heart racing and Dawn is certainly spinning. It’s almost enough to make her forget the demons that lurk in the shadows.
Unfortunately the many distractions aren’t enough to purge Angelo from her broken heart. Her hopes of ever being with him again have been dashed. He’s moving farther away and there is nothing she can do to stop it.Soon the demons Dawn wanted to forget about will remind her of their presence and she’ll have to abandon everything else. Not only is her life in danger, but the lives of everyone around her as well.
I was so excited to read the sequel to Angel's Dawn. I really wanted to know what was going to happen to Dawn and what secrets would be revealed.
I still haven't jumped aboard team Angelo, no matter what his situation is. Pietro becomes a more prominent and likable character in this installment.
In this sequel, Asima, Dawn and Aunt Meg travel to Italy for a month to get away from all the problems in their hometown in Florida.
Enter, Gabe. He's cocky, fun, and cares about Dawn even if she isn't really looking for anyone after everything in book one happened. You learn who he is, and even though I didn't think she should go for him, especially once she discovers his secret, he was my favorite guy.
Dawn went through so much in this book, it was hard not to relate to her. She gave me tears several times.
There were a few twists and turns I hadn't expected. I liked that about this book. The author did explain more of the storyline in this book, but I still wanted more. I guess I will have to wait for the final book in the trilogy!
Overall, this book gets four glittery stars for a solid read!
