Covet (Novel of the Fallen Angels #1)- J.R Ward

Synopsis:

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 charged 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. And 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.

Review:

I really enjoyed this book.  I thought that the storyline was original and well thought out.  There were only a couple things that I wish were different: 1.  It took me over 40 pages to get into it and I really had to push myself, but once I did, I was hooked.  2.  There really wasn’t any clear descriptions of the characters (if there was, I totally missed it) which made it very hard to picture anyone.

Keep in mind this is only the first book so I am only going off what I have read so far…the formula for this SEEMS to be that each book will be a new set of characters, except for the main fallen angels and demons.  I don’t know how I feel about that since you spend an entire book falling for the “victim/s”, for lack of a better word, only to leave them behind in the end.

It is a relatively fast paced book which makes it an easy read although it is long (at least to me it was…it took me 2 days to finish), 482 pages.

I would recommend to adults who like paranormal/fallen angel/supernatural romance books.  There is pervasive language and sex.
