Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick
For Nora Grey, romance was not part of the plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how much her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her...until Patch comes along.
With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Nora is drawn to him against her better judgment, but after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure whom to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is, and to know more about her than her closest friends. She can't decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is far more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel.
For Nora is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen - and when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost her life.
This book was different in that there were no werewolves! Seriously, folks! My last few books were about werewolves and I had no idea that is what I picked. (I should be more proactive when I check out books. I go off other lists and am usually surprised with what is waiting for me at the library).
Instead of werewolves, we have fallen angels. Are they considered demons? Patch is the main bad-guy-fallen-in-love-with-the-person-he-is-to-kill-to-save-his-soul; Nora is the why-do-you-even-like-me girl.
There were a few surprising twists and I think I accidentally gave one away. SORRY.
