Crave, much better then the first book.

Crave by author J.R. Ward is the second novel in her Fallen Angels series. The first novel, Covet, was too slow for me, but this book is MUCH better!

I am a HUGE fan of Ward. I LOVE her vampire series, Black Dagger Brotherhood. (V, come rescue me anytime my man) I almost gave up on this series but I wanted to give it one more try. I am glad I did. The book did drag a bit in areas, but it was leaps and bounds better then the first one.

Book Description:
Seven deadly sins. Seven souls that must be saved. One more no-holds- barred battle between a fallen angel with a hardened heart and a demon with everything to lose.

Isaac Rothe is a black ops soldier with a dark past and a grim future. The target of an assassin, he finds himself behind bars, his fate in the hands of his gorgeous public defender Grier Childe. His hot attraction to her can only lead to trouble-and that's before Jim Heron tells him his soul is in danger. Caught up in a wicked game with the demon who shadows Jim, Isaac must decide whether the soldier in him can believe that true love is the ultimate weapon against evil.

It's angles vs. demons in a game whose outcome decides the fate of humanity. Can good triumph in the end? Thats what we are waiting to find out. There were strange rules placed on the game they are playing, I found it a little difficult to understand. It's never clearly written what qualifies as "cheating". :(

Sexy men fighting for the good of mankind. I love it. Action and adventure round out the story. I could have used a little more in the romance department and maybe a bit less focus on the side characters. But, thats just me and my addiction. lol

Overall the book is above average, with still a little more to be desired in up coming books.
Getting 3 and 1/2 sheep. :)


  1. Could this one be read without having read the first book? Covet was a DNF for me - I was shocked!

  2. Well its kinda explained better in the first book. How the game works and all that. Intro to the main players you will see over and over.
    But that being said, you MAY be able to just do this one. I would suggest a quick read of the first. But if you can't then just go to this one. :)
    lol hope that helped!

  3. Another author I should really give a try.

  4. glad to hear this one was better cause I was luke warm on the first one. I just didn't connect to the hero. I plan on giving this one a try.

    @McPig, you haven't read the Blackdagger Brotherhood books? OMG Get Lover Mine, now!!! .

  5. @McPig yeah you NEED to get her BDB series asap! Like right now. lol SOOOOOOOO good. You will NOT be disappointed. :)
