Covet is a tantalizing novel that will leave you wanting for more. In J.R. Ward's first installment of her Fallen Angels series she takes the term Angel to a whole new level making the characters cocky, arrogant, tough talking S.O.B's that take on the world and try to save it from the seven deadly sins.
Jim Heron becomes a fallen angel and is charged with saving seven people from the seven deadly sins. His first act is his hardest while he tries to learn the ropes of what it takes to be an angel and get vengeance on demons and their actions against humans. A tough talking biker who is used to getting revenge and killing for a living has to turn a new leaf and play for the good guys, but that doesn't mean he has to change his attitude and the way he lives one bit.
When he runs into his first human to save, Vincent di Pietro, he realizes he has his work cut out for him. Vin is just as hard-ass as he is, except he's got the money to back himself for his actions, and self-proclaimed "better then you" attitude. Jim tries to help Vin decide his destiny and which path is right for him to go down, including making him question the very woman whom he's with. With evil ready to take his soul, Jim has to work with Vin to help save himself from the pits of hell and help him redeem his very soul.
Ward keeps you holding on from the very beginning. There is a lot of action and suspense in this story as you read about Jim Heron and follow as he grows as a Fallen Angel. Just like her BDB books, she will have you wanting more in this new series and falling in love with the Angels. J.R. Ward's ability to make you feel like you personally know her characters is undeniable, and keeps you holding on with each steamy sex scene. She is without a doubt an exceptionally talented writer when it comes to Paranormal Romance, and will make you blush.
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.
