This is the first book in the Fallen Angels series by JR Ward.
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 charged 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.
This book was pretty good. :)
I feel like I was not fair to this book - I was comparing it to the BDB the whole time - and it was falling short.
Now that I have finished the book and taken time to evaluate it on its' own merits - the book was good. I like the concept and I love the character of Jim Heron.
I love the writing style of J R Ward and her ability to weave a wonderful story and create memorable characters - and she did this with Covet.
I'm looking forward to the next installment in this new series - but I'm also hoping that this is not an end to the BDB.
I give Covet 4 out of 5 stars. :)
