Crescendo by Becca Fitzpatrick

Nora Grey's life is still far from perfect. Surviving an attempt on her life wasn't pleasant, but atleast she got a guardian angel out of it: a mysterious, magnetic, gorgeous guardian angel. But, despite his role in her life, Patch has been acting anything but angelic. He's more elusive than ever and even worse, he's started spending time with Nora's arch-enemy, Marcie Millar. 

Nora would have hardly noticed Scott Parnell, an old family friend who has moved back to town, if Path hadnt been acting so distant. Even with Scott's totally infuriating attitude Nora finds herself drawn to him - despite her lingering feeling that he's hiding something. 

Haunted by images of her murdered father, and questioning whether her nephilim bloodline has anything to do with his death, Nora puts herself increasingly in dangerous situations as she desperatly searches for answers. But maybe some things are better left buried, because the truth could destroy everything - and everyone - she trusts.

This book was addictive, one of the most addictive books I've read. Most of the times, I don't expect the second books of a series to be better than the first ones, but this one was better than the first one it was wow. I have to say the cliffhanger was just mean. In this book there was a constant "What's gonna happen next?" thought. But the cliffhanger, it was the biggest of all, it was a "What the hell is going to happen next?!" The worst part of the cliffhanger is that you don't have the answer to that question. What i really liked about this book was Nora. She was reckless and a reckless character always gives a great essence to the story. And Patch...oh god Patch. He is my main reason for reading the book, he is the perfect guy and you can't help to feel attracted to him. The plot was unbelievable, it had me hooked the whole time. This book really did exceed my expectations. I highly recommend it. But be sure to read book one first. Believe me, both of them are worth reading!
