Goodreads Description 

Mels Carmichael, reporter for the Caldwell Courier Journal, gets the shock of her life when a man stumbles in front of her car outside the local cemetery. After the accident, his amnesia is just the kind of mystery she likes to solve, but she soon discovers they're over their heads with his past. Over their heads with passion, too ...As shadows walk the line between reality and another realm, and her lover's memory begins to come back, the two of them learn that nothing is truly dead and buried. Especially when you're trapped in a no-holds-barred war between angels and demons. With a soul on the line, and Mels's heart at risk, what in heaven - or in hell - will it take to save them both?

After reporter Mels Carmichael hits a disheveled man with her car
outside the local cemetery, she pays a visit to the stranger in the hospital. The only thing he remembers of his past is seeing a name written on a headstone: that of Jim Heron—a fallen angel charged with rescuing souls from the seven deadly sins. Now, as Mels struggles to help this mysterious stranger rediscover himself, Heron himself returns to prepare for a battle between good and evil.
Wow. This book was so impressive. I know I sound like a broken record by this point but holy shit. This was the Zsadist of the Fallen Angels. I didn't think feels could hit me like they did but holy fucking hell they hit. SPOILERS FROM PREVIOUS BOOKS READ AT YOUR OWN RISK.

This book is Matthias's second chance...and his second chance starts with getting hit by a car driven by his heroine. No, seriously. I can't make this shit up. Matthias feels a pull towards Mels and, as a reporter, she seeks to know the truth about this man she met. Weird shit starts to happen pretty quickly especially when Matthias find Jim and Adrian. So let's talk about them for a moment. Jim Heron you all know I'm in love with. This book makes my love run even deeper, especially the end. Hearts in fucking eyes, you guys. And Adrian...oh, my gosh Jim watch your back because ADRIAN is AMAZING!!! What he does at one point in this book is ridiculously beautiful. I just can't even with him. I cried. Yeah, yeah I cry in books but THIS was just on another level.

And Matthias? I really can't. He is my Fallen Angels Zsadist and I was SOBBING at points with how fucking beautiful his and Mels relationship is. It's not easy, it's not always pretty, but holy fucking hell did it kick me in the feels. Matthias has amnesia after the car accident and ya know, coming back from the dead. Because of this, he doesn't fully know his past but he knows it wasn't great. It comes back piece by piece and what he remembers he doesn't like, for obvious reasons. His devotion to Mels knowing he doesn't deserve her and can't be whole for her is just incredible. And her ability to accept him as is is just as incredible. It also totally turned me on how attracted she was to him, scars, limp, cane, and other disabilities included. It was SO swoony and how things concluded had me SOBBING something ugly. So not cute.

I am so engaged and in love with this series I cannot wait to see how it ends. The ending of this book was a complete shocker and holy shit I cannot wait to see how Jim handles the competition from here on out.

Backstage Pass
If you love broken heroes, strong women, and redemption...this book is for you.
