Covet by JR Ward is the first book in her new Fallen Angel series. From the back cover.~
Redemption isn’t a work 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 has surrendered himself to his business-until fate intervenes in the form of a tough-talking, Harley-riding, self-professed savior, and a woman who makes him question his destiny. With an ancient evil ready to claim him, Vin has to work with a fallen angel not only to win his beloved over…but to redeem his very soul.
I had been waiting for Covet to come out for months. JR Ward is one of my all-time favorite writers and I couldn’t wait to read her newest series. I really liked Covet and look forward to the rest of the books in this series. I will say that for me, it seemed to start out a little slow and felt a bit scattered in the beginning. However, once I got into the story a bit more, I really loved it. Jim is probably one of my most favorite characters she has ever written (Z is my favorite ever). I also loved Eddie, Adrian, and Dog. I really didn’t love some of the other characters in the book. Marie-Terese wasn’t really as strong as I expected her to be, especially for someone who will do anything to protect her son. Vin was a bit unlikeable at the beginning of the book, but he got better as the book progressed and he met Marie-Terese. The Warden gives the reader a little bit of everything with Covet, including romance, love, evil, and redemption.
There are seven book scheduled for the Fallen Angel series. Jim must help save the souls of seven people from the seven deadly sins. Crave is the second book in the series and the release date is scheduled for October 2010.
