Goodreads Description 

A man and a woman tread the lines of danger, desire, and deliverance in the new novel of the Fallen Angels from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series.

As the son of a serial killer, homicide detective Thomas "Veck" DelVecchio, Jr., grew up in the shadow of evil. Now, on the knife-edge between civic duty and blind retribution, he atones for the sins of his father- while fighting his inner demons. Assigned to monitor Veck is Internal Affairs officer Sophia Reilly, whose interest in him is both professional and arousingly personal. And Veck and Sophia have another link: Jim Heron, a mysterious stranger with too many answers... to questions that are deadly. When Veck and Sophia are drawn into the ultimate battle between good and evil, their fallen angel savior is the only thing that stands between them and eternal damnation.
This series continues to impress me and hold me by the proverbial balls. I cannot get enough of this series and the next book is no exception. In the battle for good against evil, I can safely say I'm more than a little in love with one Jim Heron. Swoon fucking swoon, my friends. This guy is an angel fighting off the devil herself and he just does it so well...and very sexily. Is that a word? No matter. He is drop dead fucking sexy as he does his damnedest to save people. Adrian and Eddie are also hot as hell not to mention smart, protective, and brave. This trio of man candy are more than just pretty faces and this book really brought their storyline to the forefront for me. I felt like I became way more invested in Jim and his journey than the main couple. I loved Jim in the previous books, don't get me wrong, but this book really solidified how much I love him and his storyline.

The main focus in this part of the game is Veck aka Thomas DelVecchio, Jr, son of an infamous serial killer on death row. Devina is up to old tricks as she has again broken the rules, I won't give you the details, you'll have to read it. Veck struggles with his inner anger and how to deal with his father's awful legacy. He meets Sophia Reilly under...circumstances...and they end up having to be partners. Their attraction to one another is off the charts, as always. What I loved about this book was that while Sophia frustrated me at times because after she makes strides with Veck and get *ahem* intimate, she shuts down immediately. This was something I could understand but it still was frustrating at times to read. But I GET IT so I can't be too harsh. If I were in her shoes I'd be doing the same thing! Veck has his own personal demons for obvious reasons but I looooved how absolutely tender and vulnerable he was with Sophia. He really let down his guard especially with how crazy his past has been. Their relationship was super fun to read about, particularly when Victoria's Secret was involved.

The plot thickens immensely in that Devina seems to be manipulating the playing field even more than before. It's so infuriating!!!! But of course, makes for great reading. I absolutely love this series. I can't wait to read more about Jim and the game and that bitch Devina.
