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....

No, but his narration was great!
Who really uses the word resplendent? This adjective is better suited for use in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series.
I like that the people from the 1st in the series continue on to this book. So it is like the 1st in the series just continues on.
Jim was of course my favorite character in the book, but lets not forget his side kicks!
He does a very good job of changing his voice so you know who is talking.
If I had the time to sit for the book I would have listened from beginning to end in one sitting.
The narrater for this was so good! You can tell the difference in characters and the voices do not all run together. Made the whole experience really enjoyable!
Ward writing style is predictable but in a good way. You know what you are getting when you read one of her books. There is lots of internal struggle and self-loathing with redemption at the end of the tunnel. Don???t get me wrong, this book is worth the read and I enjoyed it. The male characters are strong, protective, hard, and damaged and for the most part so are the female characters in their own way. I like that the men might be doing the whole cave man protective thing that most women outwardly shun but inwardly love but it is the women that end up doing just as much of the saving.
The series gets better with each book. I love how JR takes everyday trials and shows how the devil who is dressed up to look like every man's fantasy. How she puts temptation in front of you .
The second in Ms. Ward's Fallen Angel series and it didn't fail to please.
Jim Heron, now a full angel after his death at the end of book one and his success in saving the first of the seven souls, turns his attention to Boston and the second soul that hangs in the balance.
Issac Roth was once a member of the special ops team that Jim worked with, and his death has been ordered by Mathias, the man in charge of the team. An order that has come about due to Issac trying to leave the fold. In his attempt to earn money and also stay under the radar, Issac has been working as a fighter in the underground rings.
But a raid and his subsequent arrest brings him into contact with attorney Grier Childe, who volunteers x amount of hours each month, pro-bono, as a public defender.
But Grier isn't alone as the beautiful, intelligent woman is often accompanied by someone only she can see - the ghost of her dead brother.
Jim doesn't know, for certain, which soul he's meant to save, but one thing is certain. He's determined not to let Mathias kill Issac, or anyone else caught up in this situation. And if that wasn't difficult enough, Devina is still around, ready to throw a spanner in the works the first chance she gets.
A sensual, well written book that mixes urban fantasy, erotic romance, and paranormal romance.
As a narrator, Mr. Dove works very well for this book, and I look forward to listening to the third in the series.
I might just be suffering from one of the seven deadly sins - Greed. I cannot stop reading these books and I want them to come out sooner!!
I'm really enjoying them. It's nice to have a male-narrated supernatural story. Also, J.R.'s writing style is very natural. I can picture people having these conversations (if the paranormal really existed). Plus, the sense of humor of the characters has me laughing out loud. I wish I was as witty as them!
This one is a bit more graphic than the first, so beware if you can't handle graphic violence.
Narration is great.
I thought you couldn't surpass the Black Dagger Series, but you have. Excellent. Narrator is perfect and does an excellent job with all the voices. Do not miss this series. Can't wait for the next book!
Loved this! I also loved the way she discretely blends this world in with her other series (Blackdagger Brotherhood Series) which I totally recommend you get your hands on. The narrator did an amazing job and can’t help but fall in love with the male characters. Totally enjoyed and cannot wait for her next instalment.
J. R. Ward writes this genre so perfectly...the tone, the characters, the plot is so...masculine and so wonderfully male. I don't know how else to describe the writing. I actually had to go to the website to discover J.R. Ward's gender!
I loved the first book, Covet, and I am totally hooked on Jim Heron's mission, as well as his character. And what a great villian in that Devina! Wow! Love that shape shifting and stillettos.
Such a terrific plot with the angels, demons, souls and special-ops. So cool! I cannot wait until September!
