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 attract ...more
Crave the 2nd book in the Fallen Angels series was better for me than book 1. First off it wasn't bogged down with info overload. I enjoyed the faster pace of this book. There was lots of action in this book too. Also I personally liked this couple better than book 1. Isaac Rothe our male love interest in this book( since each book has more than one hero, mainly Jim Heron) was absolutely yummy. A sexy black ops soldier, with a good heart, and a slow southern dra ...more
Oh my gosh! Look at how cute this grumpy goldfish is! I want him! He's my new spirit animal!
Anyway, I read this book and immediately started the next one, which I just finished, so I don't remember the deets on this one. I'll give you what I remember:
There was a guy,
then a bad guy,
That sums it up nicely.
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 m ...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
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
I didn't like it at all. I had to force myself tremendously to keep reading it. I kept expecting that it would get better at some point or at least more interesting, but it never did. I finally gave up during chapter 30. This book was an immensely let down.
I think this series is not for me. I am a huge HUGE fan of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series but these books are vastly different and don’t work for me.
I am not interested in the romance, I am not interested in the demons versus angels p ...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
So many things are still wrong with this series that I don't know even where to start.
FIRST :The paranormal aspect of the story
I know this series is supposed to be paranormal, but IMHO not enough importance is given to the paranormal characters. I always find myself craving ...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
I did figure out the twisty twist way b ...more
Crave almost sucks from the very word go. Let's start with the romant ...more
SERIOUSLY DID THAT JUST HAPPEN?!!!!!
Ok so starting off let me say I LOVE LOVE LOVE J.R. Ward!....but this series is a buzz kill. First is slow talking about Jim's past etc etc.
Then in comes Isaac!!! Wowza that man is sex on a stick!
And I'm thinking HAPPY HAPPY JOY JOY!!
Problem is that was the best part of the book was the few chapters where Grier and Isaac...ummm get to know each ot ...more
I can't stress enough how good this book/series is...I highly recommend Crave...it will leave you CRAVING for 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
I really had high hopes for this one going in. I really thought I was going to get some more steamy sex with Jim Heron, the blue collar angel with the wings and the cute little scruffy dog. But of course, we're on ...more
--Isaac is AWESOME! Big tough mean looking guy with a heart of gold...well, after he's done being a badass killer-face.
--Brutal! If you're askeered of rape scenes, you may want to skip a scene. It's a man who is violated, which I guess leaves more opportunity to be graphic about it? I know if it was a woman who had this done in such a descriptive way, there would be a reader revolt! I was a bit disturbed, so fair warning.
--Jim, OH JIM! You've just got to love him. He's ...more
Another soul is at the cross roads and up for grabs. Heaven is ahead by one soul, but Hell is up to bat and the first team (Heaven or Hell) to get a majority in seven skirmishes wins it all. With this second entry, Ward solidifies her new Fallen Angels series and get past some of the things that bothered me in the first book: Jim Herron, the sole entity ‘allowed’ to influence the soul’s decision, has definitely gotten his wing ...more
Not sure how this happened, but in this book I’m actually feeling compassion toward Devina. ...more
THIS IS HOW YOU DO IT THE WARDEN WAY!
This is a serious UPGRADE in the status of this series from the first book!
The Evil Devina (seriously, if not Angelina's face as Devina then whose?) has serioulsy upped the game. Oh how I love to hate you Devina, esp. after (view spoiler)[what you did to Jim in the bowels of HELL! (hide spoiler)] I can't wait for YOUR time to suffer.
Obviously. Unequivocally. Eternally.
Andrian and Eddie
Team A ...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
I really adored Isaac Rothe. His brute strength, ruthless skill as a XOps, his deadly percision and determination all while doing it with a quiet Southern gentle charm and impeccable manners to boot. Gah. His 'yes ma'am's and 'no ma'am's' just gave me major feels. I love this guy. I just wish his story with Grier got more focus in this. Their romance took a back seat in this and seemed more of a secondary arc which is a shame. The romance and steam in this is rather tepid which kind ...more

Other books in the series
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.”
