Homicide detective Thomas DelVecchio, Jr has a sordid past, but not one of his own making. His father was a serial killer, and he has spent his life trying to atone for the sins of his family.

Sophia Reilly is an Internal Affairs officer assigned to DelVecchio, or "Veck", as he is sometimes called. Yet her professional interest in monitoring his activities may be eclipsed by her lust for him.

The third link in this drama is a mysterious stranger, Jim Heron, a man with a lot of answers to some very deadly questions. In the battle between justice and vengeance, this fallen angel of sorts is the only breaker between them and the hell that awaits.

J.R. Ward is the pen name for Jessica Rowley Pell Bird, the one used for her paranormal romance series. Her maiden name Jessica Bird is used for romance novels. Her relationship with writing began when she was a young girl, scribbling thoughts and musings in her diaries along with short stories. Before she went to college, she wrote her first romance novel. Continuing to write during school, she majored in art history, concentrating on the medieval period. Later, she received a law degree and was employed in healthcare administration. After becoming married, her husband encouraged her to publish her work. She enjoys writing series novels which tie together characters of previous stories.

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.

    " "Envy" has been my favorite from The Fallen Angels series. In kept me intrigued all the time and I loved the love story!!! I liked how J.R.Ward is merging the Black Dagger Brotherhood and the Fallen Angels series together. It was interesting getting to know Nigel, Colin and Devina better. This book had a little bit of everything...heart-breaking loss, friendship, action, HOT romance and true love in every form!!! Loved it!!!!! "

    " The best one yet in the series. Veck is addictive. "

    " 3rd book in the series with a strong central romance as always. I love J.R. Ward's writng style. I found it interesting that this angel/demon series crossed over slightly with her vampire series. Some cool developments in the overarching series regardng Jim and Sissy and Devina. Makes me wonder if she has something planned for Adrian, too. "

    " I had been looking forward to this book for a while. I really like Jim, and while I find a lot of the plot lines rather predictable, I enjoy reading the stories. Having said that though, I was disappointed. I don't know if it's because I had such high expectations, but this book was really ho-hum. I skimmed or outright skipped about the middle third of the book it was so boring. The end was well done (although the whole Jim getting out of the deal with Devina because "he lied" seemed rather simple), the beginning was OK, but the middle.... Gah. I did enjoy the more active role Colin took and I enjoyed that he and Nigel were featured more. I'll keep reading the series, because I'd like to see how this all works out, but I'm not looking forward to Mathias in the next book, since I didn't care for him all that much in the first place. On the other hand if JR Ward can make him likable, she'll have proven herself an amazing author. "
