Book Review: Covet (Fallen Angels #1) by JR Ward

Redemption isn’t a word Jim Heron knows much about—his specialty, both personally and professionally, 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. His weapon: the power of love. His enemy: the darkest of evil. And failure is not an option.

Vincent Di Pietro 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 will make 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.

This is the first book in JR Ward's new Fallen Angels series.  It was a little weak, as was Dark Lover, Ward's first Black Dagger Brotherhood Book.  I like the fallen angel premise.  I like the fact that this series is also set in Caldwell, like the Black Dagger Brotherhood.  I like the crossover of minor characters between the two series.  I like Jim and I like his angel "mentors."  I DON'T like reading about a prostitute with a big heart.  If I was in the mood for that, I'd go rent Pretty Woman.  I'm going to give the next book in this series a try, just because I enjoy the Black Dagger Brotherhood so much and because I feel 95% sure Ward won't feature a prostitute as the protagnonist in the next installment. 

Just One Gripe:
The plot was a tad predictable.

The Best Thing About This Book:
Hmm, I'd  have to say Jim.  I like him a lot!

Appropriate for a younger audience:
No, no, no!
