Synopsis

A man and a woman tread the lines of danger, desire, and deliverance in the new novel of the Fallen Angels from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series.

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.

...Ward’s usual slang is ever present in Envy but sometimes it doesn’t fit the character that is using it.

I was engrossed in this book and loved Veck, and if you’re a fan of Ward’s style of writing, it’s a must-read.

If you are familiar with J.R. Ward, you know she throws in a lot of smart-ass humor and the lovin’ is back to being hot. I also found this particular book in the series to be quite emotional.

... I’m just not that into this style of non-paranormal, paranormal romance and that made the story drag for me in places.

...I hope Ward spices it up a bit with the next few. It seems that this series has fallen into a pattern of Good fallen angel fights bad demon and at the end it works in either’s favour!

I was pleasantly (okay, shockingly) surprised by how much I enjoyed ‘Envy’. Maybe it’s that I’m going into this series with slightly lowered expectations now, but I really think the Warden is hitting her stride.
