Alexandra Jarvis is a homicide detective who is up against a serial killer unlike any she’s ever encountered and the last thing she needs is a new partner who is hellbent on getting in her way and under her skin at every turn. Aramael sentenced his own brother to eternal exile but now he’s back and only Aramael can stop him. This thrilling urban fantasy romance keeps readers glued to the pages with a fascinating world and lots of suspense. Both, the main characters and the supporting characters are strong, compelling and easily draw readers into this steady to fast paced plot. The suspense builds throughout and keeps readers on the edge of their seats with exciting and suspenseful events while surprising twists and betrayals keeps readers guessing. The author’s creative workings of the conflict between angels and fallen angels is fascinating and it creates a very intriguing world in which readers can easily become completely caught up in. There is some wonderfully delicious chemistry that sizzles between Alex and Aramael which creates lots of intense friction between the partners as they try to stop the serial killer but it also creates a lot of conflict and emotional turmoil for these two as well which keeps this relationship quite volatile throughout. I was completely caught up in this story so I was a bit disappointed that it has such a cliffhanger ending which means of course that I can’t wait to read the next one.
I enjoyed this well-written book. Homicide detective Alexandra Jarvis is tracking a serial killer and does not have time for the new partner she has been assigned. Aramael needs to work with Alex to find his brother, a fallen angel, while keeping Alex safe, too. This was an entertaining story and I look forward to reading more books by this author.
I received this as an ARC in exchange for an honest review. Alexandra Jarvis is a homicide cop in the middle of a serial murder case without a partner. Until now, that is. But this partner? Needs training, rubs her wrong, and has wings? No. No, he doesn't. No one has wings. That's her mother's crazy talking, and Alex refuses to go there. But there are so many strange things going on with this case. Nothing is the way it should be. Neither the killer nor Alex's partner seem quite human and that's not something she or her sanity can deal with. This is a really enjoyable book to read, and I really like Alex. Given her history, she is exactly the way you would expect her to be. Tough, yet still not sure of herself. And with her sanity in question, she deals with it in the way you would expect a cop to deal with it. By ignoring it. Jacob also is exactly what you would expect. Confused, obstinate, superior, and stubborn. The storyline progresses the way it should. My only complaint is a small one, being that at times it was mildly confusing when the story jumped between points of view. Otherwise, a great read and I can't wait for more, as this one leaves the reader hanging!
