Angels Dawn by Komali da Silva

Angels DawnAngels Dawn by Komali da Silva
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was given this book to read and review by the author. When reading the blurb I thought it was something like a love triangle.
It was to a certain degree.

Komali Da Silva writes fluently and well, she brings out things in the characters that take you back and make you think a little

I just didn't expect what happened, what it turned out to be! I was flabbergasted. If I had known what this book was going to reveal towards the end, I wouldn't have chosen to read it, I'd have said to her "thank you, but its not my genre" instead, I was blinded by the blurb. I have to say though, I am glad I was! because the book gripped me, not right at the beginning, it was about half way through when the questions hung over Nat and Angelo, and what or who she was going to choose.

She loved Nat, but wasn't 'inlove' with him, but he was deeply in love with her. Angelo comes along and he takes her mind, emotions, but Angelo has a secret. Things get dark and woven into this story that I was taken totally by shock and surprise.

I would never in a zillion years have chosen to read this if I had know, then I would have missed out on a GREAT story. So this has taught me to look more closely to other genres similar I might enjoy just as much.
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?
