Seven deadly sins. Seven souls that must be saved. One more no-holds-barred battle between Jim Heron, a fallen angel with a hardened heart, and a demon with everything to lose.
Isaac Rothe is a black-ops soldier with a dark past and a grim future. The target of an assassin, he finds himself behind bars, his fate in the hands of his gorgeous public defender, Grier Childe. His hot attraction to her is a totally wrong-place-wrong-time kind of thing - and that’s before Jim Heron tells him his soul is in danger. Caught up in a wicked game with the demon who shadows Jim, Isaac must decide whether the soldier in him can believe that true love is the ultimate weapon against evil....

Totally addicted to Audible.
Not what I expected but I could not stop listening and have to have others of this series.
I like Jack Reacher style characters regardless of setting. Put them in outer space, in modern America, in a military setting, on an alien planet... no worries. Book has non moralistic vigilante-justice? Sign me up! (oh, I read urban fantasy, soft and hard sci-fi, trashy vampire and zombie novels too)
It is about the same quality as Covet. It is not bad - but certainly is not the Black Dagger Brotherhood stories, not even close (and if you haven't read them, go get them now, all of them.)
There is some sex, but it's kind of short and has little tension/build-up and is more ho-hum than thrilling.
The story is wrapped up independently, but the characters are the same and there is little recapping so you probably should read them in order. The narrator seems to distinguish the male characters better in this book than he did in Covet.
I'm not sure if I'll read the next in the series or not - it's so close to bordering on average that the price of the audiobook when it comes out will probably be the deciding factor, more so than the story itself.
Looking for similar stories? Jeaniene Frost's Night Huntress books are similar. Moning's Fever series is good too, but involves dark fairies instead of vampires.
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
I love JR Ward and this series did not let me down. I love the storyline and if your a fan I think you'll like these too.
O Day of days when we can read! The reader and the book, either without the other is naught. Ralph Waldo Emerson. I Love to read, a great time for me is curling up with a great book!!!
J.R. has delivered another good one. Can't wait to read the rest of the series
What else can I say except..."It's J.R. Ward!!!" Those of us who love the BDB will love this as well. I was WELL pleased with the new series.
Great story line and the narrator really brought the story to life. There is a lot of sexual situations that would not be suitable for under teen aged. But over all it was a really great book
I'm not sure why there have been negative reviews of Eric Dove. I think he does a great job with the different voices.
If you liked the first in this series, you'll not be disappointed in this one. The action continues! Davina is bad, bad, bad.
Looking forward to the next in the series!
