Our choices seal our fate. Hannah Reed is about to learn just how important one little decision can be.
Hannah's plans for a nice, quiet senior year of high school are rapidly disintegrating. It all starts when she innocently bursts in on Ethan Flynn in the change room of the clothing store where she works. Ethan's presence in Hannah's world is subtle but constant, and when he saves her life, they become linked by the workings of an ancient society and Ethan's sworn duty to protect Hannah. Working together to figure out what destiny wants with Hannah, the two of them stumble on a baffling mystery that leaves even Ethan questioning what is in store for her future. With Ethan's help, Hannah learns there is far more to this life, to her life, than she ever realized. As they attempt to untangle Hannah's unique past and emerging abilities, an unknown danger from Ethan's past looms ever closer. While racing to put together the pieces of the puzzle before it's too late, Hannah wrestles with the idea that she is anything but average, and that perhaps she is also more to Ethan than just a job.

(I received a digital copy of this book for free. Thanks to author Rebecca Weller.) This was a YA paranormal/fantasy story with a touch of romance. Hannah was an interesting character, and I liked Ethan also, even if they were a little bit clueless when it came to their love lives. I actually felt quite sorry for Ryan though as it seemed like nobody wanted to go out with him. The storyline in this was about Hannah meeting Ethan and starting a friendship with him, and slowly discovering that he was hiding some massive secrets from her. We got a bit of action, some unusual happenings, and a bit of romance too, and I liked the little twists we got thrown towards the end. The ending to this was pretty good, and it will be interesting to see where the story goes from here. 7 out of 10
Reviewed by Rosie Malezer for Readers' Favorite Hleo is the first book in the Hleo series by Rebecca Weller. Seventeen-year-old Hannah Reed helps her boss, Carmen, clean up East Halton’s clothing store, The Patch, at closing time. While checking that all stock had been removed from the change rooms, Hannah inadvertently walks in on semi-naked Ethan Flynn, who hadn’t realized the store had closed its doors for the night. Hannah is aghast when she discovers Ethan has just enrolled at her school, where she is about to complete her senior year. While the female students fruitlessly throw themselves at the handsome new student, Ethan only has eyes for Hannah. When unexplained attempts are suddenly made on her life, Hannah feels both relieved and uneasy that Ethan always seems to be there to save her. Then she witnesses him murder a man before her very eyes. While trying to flee, she learns that Ethan is no ordinary boy and that she is no ordinary girl. Hannah will soon make a decision that will either save or destroy the earth and Ethan has been sent to protect her at all costs. For he is a Hleo – one of the many supernatural bodyguards whose job it is to protect those who are exceptional. Hannah now needs to figure out what monumental action on her part will make such a difference to the future of mankind, while trying to rein in her feelings for Ethan and determining the role of another new face in town, Adam, whose smile lights up any room ... if she can survive the frequent assassination attempts on her life. Wow. Just wow. Rebecca Weller’s incredibly imaginative and action-packed tale kept me hanging on every single word. Hleo is a total whirlwind of adventure and an emotional roller-coaster ride. The main character had lived a normal, ordinary life for seventeen years before being thrown into a life of danger, carnage and fear. Hannah’s determination to make sense of what is going on around her, especially in the middle of trying to find out who her biological parents are, is impressive. I very much enjoyed the special bonds within Hannah’s close friendship circle, with typical teenage girls wanting to know ‘all the goss’ every single time Hannah is seen with Ethan or Adam. Although the story is paranormal in nature, each of the characters is presented as realistic and easy to engage with. Hleo is, without a doubt, one of the best young adult fiction books I have ever read. I look forward to the next book in the series and recommend this book to readers who enjoy fast-paced action, adventure, humor and suspense in a romantic thriller.
