5 Stars for the very sexy wolf.

Good Lord... Dare I say that I like Rayce more than Julian? I can't believe it but Rayce is some kind of badass. I knew that he would be from the previous books.

Lila was a bit meh for me. To be an angel, she was a bit of a pud. I did not like her character much. I felt like Rayce could do way better. I mean, she was better by the end but still not my favorite. She has been on the run since she was released fro
Mindy Lou's Book Review
Lila is a fallen angel who we first learn about in book 2 of the series. She was betrayed by the Leo, the twin that was born to rule the light when he gave her feather to a madman. That madman was able to catch her later and imprisoned her along with other paranormals. In book 2, they were freed and Lila has been on the run ever since.

Luke, the twin that was born to rule the dark, sent Rayce to hunt down Lila and bring her to him. Rayce is a werewolf who Luke saved from being consumed by his be

4.5 - "Didn't I tell you... you'll always be my angel." Stars!

Cynthia Eden’s books always take me to my reading happy place, Broken Angel is the fourth book in her fast-paced, paranormal Bad Things Series.

Shifter Rayce Lovell has figured in the series from the beginning, being one of the Lord of the Darks enforcers, he has been by Luke’s side at most of the pivotal plot points that have occurred across the previous three books so far, but the author was quick to highlight Rayce’s overprotective
♥ WishfulMiss ♥
Loved this one! Both Lila and Rayce were amazing characters and perfect for each other. For a few minutes, I thought Lila would prove tstl but thank god she saw the light and stayed true to Rayce (and showed she wasn’t as naive as people assumed!)

Rayce was hands down my favorite character! He was selfless, brave, committed and loyal. So he was a little crazy, no biggie. He was that way for his one and only so I totes approved.

This is 100% safe.

Wow!! That was one hell of a HOT ride! the book was literally on FIRE! the chemistry like OMG blazing and so damn romantic.. AWW!!! This was my first book by Cynthia Eden and it just sealed my fate as a faithful follower of her. This book was awesome. I want to say that it was too short for me but it was packed and well-written. When it was hot, it was so darn freaking HOT, I actually shifted my reading position more than a few times. When it was sweet, omg, I'm not shy to admit that I was swoon ...more

I've enjoyed seeing Rayce throughout this series and indeed he's been essential to numerous plot twists but by giving him his own true love the author has fulfilled all my expectations. Finally we see him doing that which he excells at, hunting and his prey just happens to have a pivotal role in a long awaited plan. Oh I'd like to say more but in this world controlled by two powerful Lords it's always possible to make a deal but sometimes the outcome isn't quite worth the price!

É mais 3.5 estrelas mas arredondo pela imaginação.

O início da história de Rayce e Lila já começou há 2 livros atrás, daí que aqui, tenha perdido um bocado aquele impacto/surpresa inicial, de ver os protagonistas conhecerem-se e onde tudo começa.

O que acho cada vez mais engraçado é Luke e Leo, os gémeos, oh pá, são cá uns giraços e a forma como entram nos enredos é o máximo. Aqu

Broken Angel is book four in the Bad Things series and this time we get to see Rayce meet his match. Lila didn’t have a great introduction to this world or to her newly formed feelings. Pain and terror has been much of what she has experienced, but Rayce is determined to show her more. Sent after her to bring her to Luke and keep her safe, soon feelings become involved and tough choices need to be made. This was thrilling, exciting and in some places nail biting. I loved every second of it and c ...more

Review posted on Got Fiction?

In this fourth book in Cynthia Eden’s Bad Things series, we have Lila the fallen angel, and Rayce, Luke’s werewolf friend, and tracker. He’s been tasked to find this fallen angel, and bring her to Luke. If you’ve been following my reviews of this series, you’ll know Luke is considered the Lord of the Dark, meaning he has control over all dark things (i.e. vampires, werewolves, etc). His twin Leo is the Lord of the Light, and he controls all good things. But as we’ve

Finished, review to come.

And finally...we review!!

The reason why this book gets 3 stars, is because I was not feeling it. It took me 6 days to finish. And I ploughed through it, in that at times, I had to dig deep and continue reading. I don't know why, and yet all the other 3 books went very fast.

Rayce goes after Lila. Lila is actually turning into a demon. So, the book is about Rayce saving her from Kale, a new enemy. I think what I like about every book, is that there is a brand new enemy for

Can you say AMAZING?! Well let me tell you, Ms. Eden does not disappoint with the 4th book in her BAD THINGS series! Even though each of these books can be read as a stand alone, it is better to have read the first 3 to clear up about some of the characters. This series centers around 2 brothers, Luke and Leo. Luke is the leader for what is considered the "bad" paranormal and Leo the leader of the "good" paranormal. So you are introduced to both Rayce and Lila in the previous book. Lila was betr ...more

Rayce is one of my favorite characters in the Bad Things series. From the moment he saw Lila, he’s been protective of her. He’s strong and fierce. Add in his unwavering loyalty to Luke, he’s awesome. I love how he wants to protect Lila and make things better for her.

Lila was a bit soft to my opinion, but that’s how you’d expect an angel who feels too much and to have known only pain to be like. I figure, Cynthia Eden did a great job with her character in portraying an angel who was betrayed, had

Update 2017

I'm sad to say that unfortunately my wish isn't granted. Lila is a meh (I don't have any other words to describe her).

Hot and nearly perfect.

But in my opinion, I think Luke is the star of this book. Luke is so damn perfect!

I absolutely adore Rayce <3 Please don't let Lila be weak like Rose. I hope Lila will turn into a badass woman who is not afraid to kill.

"Broken Angel" by Cynthia Eden. Book 4 in the Bad Things series.

Loving this series and this new addition about Rayce and Lila was just as excellent as all the rest. Rayce is a werewolf and he was introduced in the series right from book 1 "The Devil in Disguise" and he's shown up in all the other books so far, helping tie all the books in the series together. Lila is a fallen angel and she was introduced back in book 2 "On the Prowl". In book 2, Rayce helps save Lila when she and some other para

Still a great series!

What does an angel become when they fall? A demon, of course! At least that's what happens to Lila after she is rescued from the evil Simon in On the Prowl. Only Lila doesn't know that because, apparently, it virtually never happens. So, after she regains her freedom from Simon she takes off rather than attempting to return to heaven. Luke sends Rayce, a rogue werewolf and sort of friend, to track her and bring her back. This plan suits Rayce just fine because his inner beas

Why am I surprised that I loved this book? I really shouldn't be. Cynthia Eden always writes a great story. This was no different. The characters, plot, suspense, action, sexy time, and writing were all phenomenal. Rayce is a seriously bad ass werewolf and Lila is a sweet and innocent Angel. You certainly wouldn't think that these two would go together but believe it or not they go together perfectly. The plot was both sweet and intense and the chemistry between Lila and Rayce was off the charts ...more

I loved this one. I think of the others before this, this was second or third best. I really love the way Msg. Eden writes. I almost feel like I know everyone once you get into the stories. She really fleshed out all the people pretty well. Anyways do tread this book if you haven't read the ones before this one or you may not understand what they refer to in places and you won't really get everyone. Off to read the last book. Wonderful fun series.

I loved this book and couldn’t put it down until I finished. What is Lila becoming? Who is Kale and why does he think Lila belongs to hm? Rayce was summoned to get her for Luke ( the Lord of the Dark). But Rayce has fallen for his Angel ( Lila). I was emotional on this book and cried too. Will she become dangerous? This whole series is great. You’ll definitely want to get this book. Loved getting both POV, a very happy ever after and no cliffhanger. I highly recommend this book.

I love Cynthia Eden's Bad Things series - great twists - memorable characters - emotion and humour. This one is Lila & Rayce (my favourite werewolf). The plot thickens with regard to Leo - maybe the good twin or Lord of the Light isn't as "good" as we once thought.

Looking forward to Book 5 - Heart of Stone.

A werewolf sent to find and bring back a fallen angel but not everything goes to plan - love gets in the way. And when a major battle is near the end two beings sacrifice the ultimate undertaking of their very lives in the name of love.

Best one yet! This was so good - I just live Rayce. Can I say I love Luke - he has to be one of the most meddling characters I’ve read in a long time. “ I lie about many things. It’s part of my charm” oh Luke you are just awesome. Ok back to Rayce and Lila - I’m so glad they had their HEA on to the next book. 4 down and 2 to go. I’m just itching to read the 6th book - Leo’s. Thank you again Cynthia for writing such fantastic character and books.
