Envy by J.R. Ward
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Synopsis ~ "Seven deadly sins. Seven souls to save. And a man and a woman treading the lines of danger, desire and deliverance ...As the son of a serial killer, homicide detective Thomas 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. Hired to monitor Veck is Internal Affairs officer Sophia Reilly, whose interest in Veck is both professional and arousingly personal. But Veck and Sophia have a common interest. He's Jim Herron, a mysterious stranger enlisted to save the soul of a killer's latest victim, one precariously hovering between heaven and hell. Before Herron's job is done, Veck and Sophia will be inexorably drawn into a battle of good against evil, where the risk is nothing less than total damnation."
I'll start by saying I love how J.R. Ward has connected this Fallen Angels series with Black Dagger Brotherhood, her other series. I was so happy to see Veck is a main character, I wanted to get to know him more after Lover Unleashed.He is such a complex and confused man.
Overall I loved this book just like I have loved everyone of J.R. Ward's book's, she is an amazing writer. Most her main characters are men and she has their dialogue down to a T. I forget that it's actually a woman that has written these books.
I'm three books into this series and I still can't figure out who 'Dog' is.. He is obviously not an ordinary dog and Jim knows that... The question is Who is he???
One of my favourite quotes out of this book:
“[Devina] “You know, Adrian, you ever get bored with being a Goody Two-shoes, you could come over to my side.”
“Because you have cookies, right.”
Those black eyes returned to his own. “And so much more.”
“Well, I’m on a diet. Sorry—but thanks for the invite.”
