Since the accident that nearly took her life, Chloe suffers from acute agoraphobia. Living alone above her family's bookstore, she spends restless nights terrified by strange visions . . . until a mysterious stranger appears and offers her salvation. Chloe is drawn to the ethereal, gorgeous Nathaniel-but her haunted soul warns her there is more to him than meets the eye.
An archangel who roams Earth collecting souls of the newly departed, Nathanial is the sole witness to the accident that should have taken Chloe's life. Seduced by the purity of her soul, he defies Providence by saving her life. But his attempt at kindness marks Chloe for damnation, and makes her an unwitting pawn in a game of unholy ambition. Now together they must fight the demons of Hell itself-for a love that defies the boundaries of Heaven and Earth.

Meet Chloe: bookstore owner, lives above in one of the apartments, never leaves the building. She was in an accident and ever since has horrible dreams about a stranger killing people. Her anxiety has gone off the charts and she really can't go past the deck of her building. She hires a lady named Neve who becomes a good friend and confidant to Chloe.
I can't really give you much more description besides that because the book does not give physical descriptions of the characters. I really don't think I missed that info. That is usually something I remember and sparks my imagination. It was lacking in this story. Where as there was way too much info for other things that were kind of hard to follow. Or it wasn't captivating enough for me to want to understand.
The plot was two fold: The plot plot, the actual situation or enemy they have to "fight", is really slow to come to fruition. The romantic plot is way too fast for me.
Overall I liked it enough to finish but in the long run this was not for me. Grammatically and structurally the writing was sound. It was a unique plot but I just felt like something was missing. However, I will likely read the next in the series to see what happens from here.
