    "A soul worth saving"

    This is one of my favorites in this series so far, you have got to pay attention. I liked our characters from the beginning and love that Delvecchio was introduced to us J R Ward fans awhile ago through the BDB series. Jim and "The Boys" our Fallen Angels are just a handful on their own. I said "ah haw" a lot while listening to this book. Nothing is held back in this battle of good and evil. Never boring.

    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.

    When I clean, drive or exercise I listen to romance. The steamier the better but it must have a great story as well!

    "Can never go wrong with JR Ward"

    I love this series and JR Ward doesn't disappoint with this newest addition. It leaves you with the sense that although you may not be perfect, you may not be evil. It left me with a feeling of hope and happiness with the world.

    "Not what I expected!"

    I love JR Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood and the Fallen Angel series, but what is with all the homosexual content?!?! I don't spend money on these books to get into the head of a gay angel...this is just too much for me. I hope JR Ward reconsiders the direction of the Fallen Angel series. The book is well written in typical JR Ward style with all kinds of twists and turns. I am just left with an icky tastes as the gay characters leave me turned-off!

    Story
    "Another Marvelous Entry to Series"

    He was the son of one of the most notorious serial killers, and whether that had decided his career choice, homicide detective Thomas “Veck” DelVecchio, Jr. had grown up in the shadow of evil. Today, he balances between good and evil as he tracks another vicious serial killer, and battles his subconscious to arrest, saving the state the bother of a long trial, or just kill the slime himself. After tracking him down, Veck seemed to blackout then found his quarry mangled beneath his feet. Veck was totally confused but did the right thing and called 911 – not sure whether he had ripped the man apart or not.

    Assigned to monitor Veck is Internal Affairs officer Sophia Reilly, who is fighting her professionalism with the fact that she finds Veck blindingly sensual. While both fight a damaging professional attraction, another complication enters into the mix; Jim Heron, a mysterious stranger with another agenda that has Veck teetering on the edge of eternal damnation unless Heron can help him make the right decision.

    Once again, Ms. Ward has penned another delicious entry into her Fallen Angels series as angel Jim Heron fights for souls in a contest of good vs. evil. So much is at stake and the action and story is fast and palatable keeping the reader/listener on the edge of their seat. The good people, angels and humans are wonderful, and the evil forces are chilling and very sinister. Ward is a master at this game and the plotting, writing, characterizations, and the twists and turns were as always amazingly good.

    Having a vast library of Audible tomes, I must also congratulate the narrator Eric Dove on a fabulous job of mastering all the voices involved and the pacing of the telling of this story. This was again a most fantastic listening experience to the fabulous writing of Ms. J.R. Ward. Outstanding!

    I like to read but don't really have a specific style of book that I go for. I love to read books that are in sets.
