Summary from Goodreads:
Hope Fairmont is a normal teenage girl. She attends public school, gets good grades, has a normal best friend…sort of normal…and works as a janitor at the local hospital. Unfortunately, that’s where the ruse ends. Oh, sure, she might be tidying up hospital rooms here and there, but Hope is also using a gift she hides from everyone in order to heal any patients who might need her, which, in her mind is everyone.

She and her father may have been able to keep her healing gift a secret for most of her life, but there are others out there who know who Hope really is and what her gift for healing is truly meant to accomplish. Hope’s life spirals out of control when two, handsome young men mysteriously appear, claiming they must protect her from a demon god determined to end her life before she can fulfill her destiny.

Jennifer's Review

The story follows Hope who has a power to heal.  She works at the hospital where her father is the chief surgeon. Hope's father desperately wants her to keep her gift a secret but he does let her help at the hospital. Being able to heal and help people makes Hope happy - it was nice to see how much she truly wanted help others.  Two mysterious boys arrive at Hope's school and then the story really takes off with some great twists and turns. The book delves into Japanese mythology which I really enjoyed. I have always been a fan of Greek mythology so getting insight in the Japanese mythology was new and fresh to me. 

The characters:  
Hope - main character, the story is told from her point of view, she's selfless, really enjoys helping and healing others, has a good relationship with her dad and best friend, never has had any interest in boys till Tie and Victor enter the picture.
Hope’s potential romantic interests are Tie and Victor:
Tie is cocky and self-assured. Almost too much but we quickly figure that some of it is a front. 
Victor is more serious, reserved and sweet.  
I liked both of them but I am glad this did not turn out to be a love triangle as I think Tie is clearly the one who is meant for Hope. I am hoping that Victor comes to his senses and finds love elsewhere. Hint hint: Angie! 
Angie - Hope's best friend. She was funny and had some really good one liners.  Very well done friendship. 
Hope's father- dedicated and really supported Hope's gift. 

The ending:
Well its a cliffhanger! In summary the story gripped me enough that I am interested in reading book two.

An unforgettable new series from acclaimed author Katie McGarry about taking risks, opening your heart and ending up in a place you never imagined possible.
 Seventeen-year-old Emily likes her life the way it is: doting parents, good friends, good school in a safe neighborhood. Sure, she's curious about her biological father—the one who chose life in a motorcycle club, the Reign of Terror, over being a parent—but that doesn't mean she wants to be a part of his world. But when a reluctant visit turns to an extended summer vacation among relatives she never knew she had, one thing becomes clear: nothing is what it seems. Not the club, not her secret-keeping father and not Oz, a guy with suck-me-in blue eyes who can help her understand them both. Oz wants one thing: to join the Reign of Terror. They're the good guys. They protect people. They're…family. And while Emily—the gorgeous and sheltered daughter of the club's most respected member—is in town, he's gonna prove it to her. So when her father asks him to keep her safe from a rival club with a score to settle, Oz knows it's his shot at his dream. What he doesn't count on is that Emily just might turn that dream upside down. No one wants them to be together. But sometimes the right person is the one you least expect, and the road you fear the most is the one that leads you home.
