I liked how Jim could tell who was an angel or demon by their lack of a shadow. She lives in the South her family. One of my favorite things about reading this book was picking out all the things from J. She was afraid that he was the same thing all over again as the man she’d made a mistake over, but I feel that she recognized the essential character of Vin, and that’s what drew her to him. I could totally see why he had that. Sep 29, Mandi Schreiner rated it liked it.

Ward does a great job knitting the plot threads together and coming up with a complex but coherent story. Even rhetorical questions should end with a question mark, but although I initially thought she did this because her male characters in particular were so alpha their questions were more like statements, this quirk has extended to a minor beta character and actual requests for information by the main characters.

To top it all off this series takes place in the same world as J. One moment he was standing at a jobsite, the next he was dead. Marie- Terese lives as a lady of the night, running from a past filled with violence, never staying in one place for too long. Ward 1st October

Covet by J. R. Ward

Ward for trying to do something different and tackle the whole Heaven versus Hell theme. One extra thing — I strongly implore Ms Ward to get a couple of beta readers. I loved seeing her son, Robbie, in this book.

Seems like a far stretch, but overall you get caught up in the lives of those Coet is trying to influence, so the story eventually falls into place. She doesn’t let me down. Here, she shows her feelings to Jim: Jim’s first assignment is Vin DiPietro, a man driven by avarice, the need to have more and more better and better. Devina interacts with Jim and his sidekicks as she tries to pollute their souls and drag them to the dark side. Interesting new series by J. I will concede that the latter BDB books are urban fantasyish, but I still consider them primarily paranormal romance.


Duke Phillips is a city road worker by day and a nightclub bouncer at night. He is the SOS — his mission. In the series opener, Ward sets up the good-versus-bad mythology of this world and then goes on to introduce the cast of characters. It almost makes up for the raging Syphilis.

Sometimes one member of the couple is a chosen mortal, but sometimes not. You actually saw me.

REVIEW: Covet by J.R. Ward

I am sinful of lust. Be open to something different, and I think that will help. Her kid was also too perfect. Jim shares the spotlight as the main lead with Vin, who was the one you see change from a cold, ruthless businessman to a man in need of understanding and love.

What I was kind of ‘meh’ about: If he succeeds, good prevails. Ward, but not quite as captivating as her BDB series.

Each book takes place within a very short time frame a day or twoand each succeeding book begins just cofet after the previous one, so the good-vs. Not only are his predictions frightening, but he knows things about her that she has tried to keep secret. I also liked the whole Mary Magdalene comparison–nice touch.

Trez – amazing in this book as he was in Lover Avenged. One was the switching back and forth between the three leads; Jim, Vin and Marie-Terese, when one part would be going, it was like someone threw a stop sign in front of your face and jumped to another POV.

The hero for the next book, Crave, is briefly mentioned in this book From the one sentence description I have a feeling I will like him better.

REVIEW: Covet by J. R. Ward (Fallen Angels, Book 1)

Ward is great at depicting relationships between men that seem authentic at least to me. This series starts out with a darkness that has only started creeping into the last few BDB books.


Gina is a girl who likes the lifestyle of a sex worker. When he woke up, he had a choice to make Seven mortals will be selected, each of whom is guilty of one of the seven deadly sins one per book. He shall have seven chances to save the world and he must not fail, because the one person he loved most in this world, her life would have been for naught. I really enjoyed the book and was usually eager to get back to it when I had to put it down, but for some reason, I didn’t quite come away from it with that “Wow!

This is obvious right away, with the strong narrative focus on Jim Heron, who is the main protagonist, although not the romantic hero.

REVIEW: Covet by J.R. Ward | SF Signal

Ward did it well. The winning side of the game will be the one with the most number of souls. His personality totally turned around – what happened to him? And, of covt, he’s a great lover. First up is Vin DiPietro, a businessman guilty of huge quantities of avarice.

At the cost of my immortal soul lol. Granted, not as good as BDB but a nice change of pace while still enjoying J. Only the most recent posts pop up on the HOME page. They all work for Vin diPietro, self-made self-assured millionaire who we first seeing buying the perfect engagement from a top jewellers for his perfect woman, Devina Avale, to complete his ssynopsis life. I also liked Marie-Therese.

First, there was too much background information, but non of it relevant. Ward and I think she is a super talented author.

Trez, one of Rehvenge’s former right-hand men, is the owner of the club where Marie-Terese works.
