Publisher's Summary

As the son of a serial killer, homicide detective Thomas “Veck” DelVecchio, Jr., grew up in the shadow of evil. Now, on the knife-edge between civic duty and blind retribution, he atones for the sins of his father - while fighting his inner demons. Assigned to monitor Veck is Internal Affairs officer Sophia Reilly, whose interest in him is both professional and arousingly personal. And Veck and Sophia have another link: Jim Heron, a mysterious stranger with too many answers... to questions that are deadly. When Veck and Sophia are drawn into the ultimate battle between good and evil, their fallen angel savior is the only thing that stands between them and eternal damnation.

    "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.

    Story
    "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.

    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!

    "An Envy of Other PNRs"

    Despite being more urban fantasy than paranormal romance, I enjoyed this book. Seven deadly sins. Seven souls to save. And I'm completely intrigued. This book is the first battle between a savior and a demon. It's far different from previous Ward books but still equally intense. I'm looking forward to continuing this series.
