Crave (Fallen Angels #2)
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 attrac...more
CRAVE is book #2 in the anticipated Fallen Angels series and while this still aint no Black Dagger Brotherhood with this instalment the WARDen seems to have at least found her groove, and I feel way more invested in the series as a whole now then I did after reading Covet, although I’m still not in love with it (does that make sense?)
Continuing 4 days after the end of COVET, Fallen Angel Jim Heron finds himself in familiar territory as t...more
This quote from the first page was my favorite passage and sums up the entire book rather nicely.
But that was life: Nobody got a guided tour to their own theme park. You had to hop on the rides as they presented themselves, never knowing whether you would like the one you were in line for...or if the bastard was going to make you throw up your corn dog and your cotton candy all over the place.
Although I really enjoyed it, Crave didn't quite live up to...more
Don’t flip to the back to read the Lover Unleashed excerpt and don’t read Crave simply to spot Brother cameos. Read it because you love J.R. Ward’s writing style and you want to support her.
Now, where do I even start? I thought Covet was a great rea...more
Hands down, Crave is better than the first book in this heart pounding series. Where Covet was an introduction to the other side of Caldwell, Crave is established and brings the jaw drop and goose bumps. The Warden offers up a writing style all her own and some of the greatest leading men, these guys make being good “oh so bad”.
Jim Heron is to the save the world by saving seven souls. He is up against a WICKED biatch. She would make you welcome the antichrist wi...more

Anyways, this was a great second book in the series and although I did like Covet a bit more, I really liked this one. I think I liked Covet more because I found myself more attached to Vin and Marie-Terese. I liked Isaac, but I found that Grier could be annoying sometime...more
I didn't really enjoy the first story in this series because I had such high expectations coming off her Black Dagger Brotherhood series, so when I started this book I was expecting it to be pretty crappy - but I am happy to admit that I was wrong.
J.R. Ward is such a wordsmith! I cant put into words how brilliant she is.
I felt like I was on a rollercoaster ride with this book, totally floored agai...more
However, Crave was definitley one of the "ups" in our relationship. I loved the dynamics between Grier and Isaac. They actually reminded me a little of Butch and Marissa (who, HELLO, are my favorite BDB couple!). I just wish there had been MORE to their relati...more
Mon avis en français : http://betweendandr.blogspot.com/2013...
J’attendais cette suite d’Anges Déchus avec beaucoup d’impatience. En effet, j’avais adoré le premier tome, Convoitise et j’avais hâte de retrouver Jim et ses acolytes pour une nouvelle mission. Je dois dire que je n’ai pas été déçue.
L’histoire débute deux jours après les événements du tome 1. Jim, Adrian et Eddie quittent Caldwell pour se rendre à Boston. C’est là-bas que Ji...more
The series definitly redeems itself with this book :) lol even though some of the answers I was looking for (the religious reasoning or waht not) were still lacking. I'm getting the feeling this is more romance/suspense than "paranormal". Despite all that... this is one of my favorite books :) Jim gets a little bit of background behind him and you find yourself admiring him and rooting for him. Adrian and Edward get a dark side yet show that tender brotherly loyalty towards eachoth...more
Jim Heron is the "quarterback" in the game between good and evil, Heaven and Hell, or angels and demons if you will. The object of the game is to decide who will rule the world. There will be seven people at a crossroads in their life whom Jim and his fellow angels, Adrian Vogel and Eddie Blackhawk, need to intervene. They need to identify and help guide...more
Okay, I know I'm not sticking strictly to my reading list by venturing off and reading Crave . But I've stopped and started this book over and over again and suddenly felt compelled to finally finish it.
I hate, hate, hate, though, writing a bad review on a book by an author I absolutely adore. It makes me cringe and want to hide. It's a completely rotten feeling and really difficult to do. But I have to be honest with my feelings and my reviews. And I'm sure many of you will think I...more
The plot was OK, not really original and just mildly entertaining. The romance was a little off, even when the hero and the heroine seemed to be really complex and interesting characters, you never really get the chance to know or understand them. Actually, the story unfolds in just a couple of days , and seriously, who falls head over heels in love in no more than 72 hours? That's just ridi...more
İlk kitaba nazaran ikili ilişkiler açısından zayıftı. Karakterler arasında filizlenen aşk olayını yazarın diğer kitaplarında daha yoğun hissediyorsunuz ,crave bu yönden zayıf kalmış. Hikayeyi jim ve devina arasında çekişme açısından incelersek iyiydi. Tahmin ettiğim gibi her kitapta bir taraf kazanacak ve bu taraf herzaman jim olmayacak. yazar bu durumu ne kadar devam ettirebilecek bakalım. Devinanın kurnazlığı akıllara zarar yalnız :D jim bi...more
I found Isaac who is a ex- special ops soldier turned bare knuckle fighter to be very likable from the start, he has the whole bad boy southern gentleman charm going for him, hes a gentle giant of a man, even though he is rough around the edges.
The heroine Grier, is very privileged, classy lady she is the attorney assigned to Isaac. She is beautiful, but carries her o...more
The darker, more gruesome side to the final war of good versus evil is shown in Crave. It was difficult to get through the unimaginable suff...more
Okay first things first - I ain't read Black Dagger Brotherhood yet and I know JR Ward is loved for that and that many reviewers who read this series after BDB gave this four stars in comparison. But I've got to say as a new reader to Ward I am in love with her writing and this series.
Her heroes and heroines are so compelling. The story is layered and nuanced and the characters are really powerful.
I adore Jim but oh my god I fell for Isaac in this one. He's so ho...more
The 2nd Battle – The 2nd soul to save. The next installment of the Fallen Angel series becomes personal for Jim Herron. But, again, is he trying to save the right soul? J.R. Ward again brings you on a journey between heaven and hell pitting the angels and demons against each other with the winner coming one step closer to utter domination.
At the end of Covet, we found Jim in the Heavens with Nigel, dead, again. But, this time he unders...more
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.

wanted someone to change and believed they could, they were in control of their life. Not you. And you could throw yourself against the wall of their choices until you were black-and-blue and dizzy as hell, but unless they decided to take a different road, the outcome wasn’t going to be what you wanted.”
