Publisher's Summary

Redemption isn't a word Jim Heron knows much about - his specialty is revenge, and to him, sin is all relative. But everything changes when he becomes a fallen angel and is charged with saving the souls of seven people from the seven deadly sins.

Vin diPietro long ago sold his soul to his business, and he's good with that - until fate intervenes in the form of a tough-talking Harley-riding, self-professed savior. But then he meets a woman who will make him question his destiny, his sanity, and his heart - and he has to work with a fallen angel to win her over and redeem his own soul.

    "I stayed with it to the end"

    I stayed with it to the end, but I'm a bit ashamed to say so. Lots of improbable overcharged sex and crazy fantasy religious/demonic interactions. If you're looking for escapism, this one will do it.

    "somewhat simplistic"

    every time I started thinking this was a 5 star book, it got booring or tiresome or tedius. I liked the characters most of the time ... It was just a relief to finally get to the end

    "J R Ward's talents to captivate seem neverending.."

    After reading the entire Black Dagger Series, I decided to listen to the Fallen Angels. Much to my delight, J R Ward does not disappoint. I can say with conviction that I am addicted to her characters and hope that she keeps them coming. This modern day science fiction-thriller offers superbly real moral and ethical dilemmas that exist in a world too close to our own.

    "Covet by J.R. Ward"

    I download books to listen to while I work. I have listened to some great books but this is my favorite of all so far. It is an orginal story line the keeps you engaged in the story chapter after chapter! I can't wait for the sequel!

    "The story line started out ....."

    The Story line started out rough.. I wasn't sure what to expect.... this is so different from her first books BDD. The reader after a little while actual grows on you and these Demons are well.. Just listen. Take your time enjoy the ride and what a ride it is. :)

    "Covet"

    Very different from but just as intriguing as Ward's Black Daggar Brotherhood. The mention of Phury and Rhevenge gave a silent nod to Ward's loyal readers. Using Caldwell, NY as the back drop again in this series gives the reader a feeling of going home. Jim Heron is abad boy "warrior" from another realm and one that will be just as compelling as Black Dagger Warrior Rhage.

    "Great Listen!"

    I didn't read a single thing about this book before I bought it. It looked good and everyone had been talking about it so why not? This book was not at all what I expected--it was much more. J.R. Ward does it again with her brilliant writing. She knows just how to lighten a situation by her clever metaphors and witty writing. I wonder what book two will have in store for us!

    "Fallen Angel book 1"

    I kept an open mind when listening to this book. I think J.R. Ward did a great job with the new series, it's not the Black Dagger Brotherhood, but i will take what i can get. I'm currently listening to book 2 of this series, and hope it's just as interesting as book 1.

    "My first JR Ward"

    This is my first experience with JR Ward. This is the first book, in a series (I don't know how many) however I found the characters and the story very intriguing. Yes there is good and evil in all of us. I felt the narrator did an excellent job. I look forward to the next book in this series. Many other people who reviewed this talked of another series by this author. I will defiantly, consider getting that series as well.
