Fallen Angels Book 1
Author: J.R. Ward
Narrated by: Eric G. Dove
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.
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.

Let me start by saying " I love J.R.Ward ", but I had to make an effort to finish this book, I don't know if it was the narrator, or just the book, but I did finished it, and I'm going to listen to the next one, some times you just have to give a series a chance, and I'm going to do it just for the love I have for the BDB books.

I was hesitant to purchase this book. I love the Black Dagger Brotherhood books and I was afraid that this one would leave me disappointed. The storyline seemed too different for me to maintain interest as strongly as I do for the BDB books. I was very wrong! I had a very difficult time finding stopping points and kept finding reasons to keep listening "just a little longer...". It also nicely correlates to the BDB books and gives you glimpses of characters familiar if you have read that series. Overall, I'm very glad that its in my library!

I am very glad I read "Covet" before it came to Audible. As always, J. R. Ward delivers an action-packed sexy story with an interesting premise and intriguing characters. I was thrilled that two of the brothers made appearances and I liked getting to know characters who only had a minor role in the BDB books.
I was extremely disappointed when I discovered that Jim Frangione wasn't the narrator. Eric Dove's rather unemotional narration really detracted from the story. He gave Vin diPietro a strange accent that made me squirm with discomfort every time Vin talked. Because of this, it took me well over a month to listen to the entire book.
If you are already a J. R. Ward fan, the lack-luster narration probably won't scare you away, but if this is the first audio book you've experienced by J. R. Ward, I highly recommend that you read her Black Dagger Brotherhood series before reading Covet.
