Ahhhhhhhhh, it has been a while since I've read an angels & demons book. But I sure did love this one, all the Anya in us needs a Dommiel!


I seriously love a good PNR read and it has been a while since I've considered an angels and demon one. I can say that Darkest Heart definitely took the cake as my favorite angel/demon book. And this was a first time read for Juliette Cross, and I'm a fan. I know that this is part of a series (or something, not exactly sure) and as usual, I haven't read the first one yet nor do I know how many books we can expect in this series. But I'm also curious to know if the next book will be about Anya and Dommiel, I'm kind of hoping so. I haven't read a PNR series where it was all standalones, so I'll definitely be begging for more Dommiel and Anya.

One thing is for certain, Dommiel has easily become one of my favorite heroes or maybe anti-heroes? The demon that you'll absolutely fall in love with. Plus, his darker side is downright alluring and sexy!

Besides the amazing job that Juliette did with the world-building, Anya and Dommiel had such great character development. And you'll be completely captivated by their story the entire time. I loved that they both weren't a tell-all from the beginning, as the story unfolds, their layers peel away and they're both opening up more to each other. With Dommiel being a high demon, he definitely surprised me the most with his caring and softer side towards Anya and the few that he's loyal to. I loved his fiercprotectiveness towards her.

And Anya, not only being an angel but a warrior as well. Teaming up with a demon on a mission of sort to find Uriel, an archangel, was the last thing she wanted, but something she needed. She despises demons and there's nothing about Dommiel that appeals to her until she finally meets him face to face. I loved how snarky and confident he got with her. You can tell that pleasing the ladies isn't an issue for him. It's exciting and intriguing to see these two dance around their feelings, the chemistry is so strong and you'll be wanting them to give in from the very beginning. They're just absolutely hot together, steaminess for days, people. Don't you even worry about THAT.

Darkest Heart has definitely been added to my #RSFave list and I'll be looking out for the next book in this series! Plus, there are quite a few side characters that I'm dying to know the story of. Juliette, you've gained a new fan, please don't make us wait forever!

“You’re the original light , Anya. Brighter than them all.”

“I can’t let him take you where I can’t find you.”

“I burn for you, angel.” Sweeping closer, I whispered, “And by the look on your face and the speeding of your pulse, you burn for me, too.”
