    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!

    What made the experience of listening to Envy: A Novel of the Fallen Angels the most enjoyable?

    These stories, are just wonderful!


    What other book might you compare Envy: A Novel of the Fallen Angels to and why?

    Can't really, nothing is too close except maybe Jeanine Frost's books.


    Have you listened to any of Eric G Dove’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not listened to any other ones.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It was really good

    "Great Series"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    J.R. Ward's Fallen Angels series is very good. I expected it to be funnier after reading The Blackdagger Brotherhood, where the angel is hilarious.

    "Cops, romance and serial killers.How cool!!!"
    What made the experience of listening to Envy: A Novel of the Fallen Angels the most enjoyable?

    Eric Dove gets better with every book.


    What other book might you compare Envy: A Novel of the Fallen Angels to and why?

    It was nice to see a cameo of Thor, the vampire from BDB.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I do love the cave scene when Vec had to choose between saving a killer and his partner. The whole book was my favorit scene.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    It was painful to think Vec was so tormented by his identity that he felt compelled to cover up the mirrors in his home.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm so glad I can listen these books while I'm working.

    "not for everyone, especially me"
    What disappointed you about Envy: A Novel of the Fallen Angels?

    after listening to a Nora Roberts book, i now get all kinds of romance recommendations from Audible. i didn't realize "Envy" is just that. i can't stand anything about it. same old formula - brooding law-enforcement/bad-boy - with a paranormal twist.


    What could J. R. Ward have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    i don't like the narrator at all.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Eric G Dove’s performances?

    no


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment. i thought it would be a good story, not romance formula.

    "Couldn't put it down!"

    I wasn't sure I would like a book about angles saving the souls of humans, but I LOVED it. The author did a great job with character development which allowed me to truely engage with each and everyone of them.

    I am planning on reading the entire series. I really enjoyed Eric Dove's narration.

    "Did Not Get It !"
    Would you try another book from J. R. Ward and/or Eric G Dove?

    I listened to all the Black Dagger Brotherhood and loved them that is why I tried this series


    What was most disappointing about J. R. Ward’s story?

    Out of a 14 hour book I probably started to put it together about the last hour just to hard to follow


    Have you listened to any of Eric G Dove’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I had no problem with him was great


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment

    "Still a good series"

    I have loved this series from the beginning, but for some reason this one just didnt hold my attention as well. Certain sections seemed to drag out. I am looking forward to getting the next one. I love JR's books, cant wait till the new Brotherhood book.
