Book Review - Envy by J.R. Ward

Envy (Fallen Angels, #3)
by J.R. Ward
Published 2011
480 Pages

In this book, we meet Thomas “Veck” DelVecchio, a police detective, who has struggled his entire life with issues surrounding his identity. Veck is the son of a serial killer, and when those around him begin to question his stability, we are privy to the undercurrents that are influencing his thoughts, behavior, and actions. And although the fallen angel, Jim Heron, has Veck in his sights, he ruminates over the murder of a young girl—a picture he cannot seem to get out of his mind. 

Will the intoxicated, motorcycle riding, sex indulging fallen angels be able to keep Jim on track? He isn't particularly fond of his new role. But all hope is not lost… yet.

I wasn’t as enthralled with this story. Still, it had its moments, and as the series develops we’re getting a better understanding of Jim and the other angels on Earth. I enjoyed the brief moments with the angels in charge—their world is described so vividly, that I would love a series just about them! Overall, a good read!
