Anything, including making a deal with an enemy angel.
Raffe is a warrior who lies broken and wingless on the street. After eons of fighting his own battles, he finds himself being rescued from a desperate situation by a half-starved teenage girl.
Traveling through a dark and twisted Northern California, they have only each other to rely on for survival. Together, they journey toward the angels’ stronghold in San Francisco where she’ll risk everything to rescue her sister and he’ll put himself at the mercy of his greatest enemies for the chance to be made whole again.
SLAMMED (SLAMMED #1)

This was the very first book I read by Colleen Hoover and she immediately won me over. I think Will was one of the first boys on my “Swoony Book Boyfriends” shelf in Goodreads. Hoover writes characters that don’t always have it easy and don’t always do the right thing…they are human. But she also does it in a way that has you rooting for them regardless of what happens – at least it was this way for me. If you enjoy New Adult with a swoony boy who writes slam poetry (Yes, there is lovely poetry), definitely check out this series as well as the other books Colleen has since written.
