Review: Envy by JR Ward

Envy (Fallen Angels, #3)Envy by J.R. Ward

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Oh.
Wow.
There’s a lot of hints of things in this that might be answered in Raptured, which I’m excited to read.

I loved the duality of the characters. Not Devina. She, eh, I could do without her constant innuendo. She honestly just annoys the crap out of me. I’d like to take that crystal dagger and just stab her between the eyes.

I’m confused on the angels, though, still. Not Eddie and Adrian. The others, like Colin and the like. What is their purpose? Why do we have to keep hearing about them?

Review: Crave by JR Ward

Crave (The Fallen Angels, #2)Crave by J.R. Ward

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I went straight from Covet to Crave, going “I have to know WTF is going on!!”

Well, I was left with a few more questions, but I did get some answers. Eddie and Ad have me going “Um, dudes?” a few times.

You know, for something I was told was a smut book, I expected more smut. I LOVED that there ended up being a baby at the end. And that she found closure for her brother. I don’t like that Devina won with Matthias, but Matthias was ready to die, in any way that he could. My heart broke for him at the end.

I’m liking Jim. He, honestly, reminds me A LOT of Butch, from The Black Dagger Brotherhood. Ad reminds me of V, and Eddie is reminding me of Hollywood, aka Rhage. It’s nice to see a version of them as angels. What’s weird is that I’m hoping that maybe, just maybe, a few of them will end up in the series. Trez did!

Review: Covet by JR Ward

Covet (The Fallen Angels, #1)Covet by J.R. Ward

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book sucked me in from the very beginning. It really helped that it’s set in the same city as The Black Dagger Brotherhood. I kept expecting to see Wrath show up or something. It was weird seeing “normal” names, so to speak.

I did spend most of the book, quite literally, saying out-loud: WTF is going on? I don’t know why. Just a few weird spots here and there.

I also expected more raunchy sex scenes. Like I said, I’ve read The Black Dagger Brotherhood before. I know the writing. Well, I didn’t get it, and well, it felt weird. Really weird.

The writing was GREAT. Like I said, I was sucked in from the very beginning, but I still was left going “What just happened?”
