Meant to Be (The Saving Angels book 1) By: Tiffany King

 
Krista Miller feels like she has lived her entire life in a glass box with her every emotion on display. She can’t help feeling like a defect as her sensitivities have made her socially inept and without any real friends; the one exception being the boy that visits her each night in her dreams.

Krista’s emotions are put to the test when a move to California triggers a devastating change to her fantasy world. The nightly comfort that the boy provides has now become a recurring nightmare as he is taken from her by an unseen force.

Struggling to appear normal, Krista enrolls in a new school and finds it to be nothing like she thought. Her new life is sent spiraling out of control from a strange connection with a boy, Mark, who claims to know all her secrets.

As Krista begins to explore the emotions that Mark evokes in her, secrets about their mysterious past and their predestined purpose threatens to separate them just when they have found each other.
 
"You are the only thing that matters," he continued as he raised my hand to his chest and placed it over his heart. "Can't you feel what you do to me?"
 

 
 Meant to Be is capturing from the first page.  At first, I thought Krista was flipping nuts! I mean, seriously, who the heck dreams the same dream every night, and has radical emotions that make them vomit at the drop of a hat? But, all of the oddness that came when getting to know her character played beautifully into the unfolding mystery of who, or better yet, what they are.
 
You'd think that since this is an angel book, that it would be the same ol' same ol'. BUT Tiffany took the regular old angel story and threw it completely out the window.  While there is the standard Divine creationism in it, this book has a different aspect of what angels are created for, and what their purpose is in human existence.
 
As the storyline progressed, I became enraptured in all of the characters different quirks and emotional history.  Tiffany King created her characters to the point where you get a complete sense of who he/she is, without any deviations.  As they learned and grew throughout the story, I found my self learning and growing along with them. The farther into the story I travelled, the more enraptured in the mystery I became.
 
The entire book is one giant, consistent, incline to the unexpected and explosive precipice.  The ending completely knocked my socks off and has me craving even more! While some authors throw everything out there for the readers in the first book of a series, Tiffany only gives you one slice of the pie, which leaves room for more shocking and intriguing plots and discoveries will no irritating fillers needed. Tiffany King is definitely an author to look out for, and I encourage everyone to buy her books.
