Covet by J.R. Ward
Redemption isn't a word Jim Heron knows much about-his specialty is revenge, and to him, sin is all relative. But everything changes when he becomes a fallen angel and is charge with saving the souls of seven people from the seven deadly sins. And failure is not an option. Vin DiPietro long ago sold his soul to his business, and he's good with that-until fate intervenes in the form of a tough- talking, Harley-riding, self-professed savior. But then he meets a woman who will make him question his destiny, his sanity, and his heart-and he has to work with a fallen angel to win her over and redeem his own soul.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Being a big fan of Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood series, I started reading this book with high expectations. I am happy to say that I was not disappointed.
The first book in a new series which has some similarities to the BDB series was a definite 'stay up all night and read' book. The premise of the book -- angels versus demons in a final deciding battle to rule -- is an interesting one.
Jim Heron is the one chosen by both sides to be the 'quarterback' in this final game. He has enough good and evil in him to satisfy both sides.
I love the fact that the Fallen Angels are big bad Harley riders (one of the similarities to BDB).
I can not wait to see where Ms. Ward takes this series. I will be waiting none to patiently for the next in the series to see how she is going to carry on the storyline!
