Summary: (from goodreads) 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.

It's been a while since I read the previous book in the Fallen Angel series and let me tell you, as soon as I started reading Envy, all of those little feelings for my bad boy angels came right back. Oh, how I love those angels. (Sigh) If you have read any of the previous books in this series you know that it's about good vs. evil. Literally. The war between Devina and Jim and his badass fallen angel sidekicks Eddie and Adrian. There are 7 deadly sins and 7 souls that will be tested when they reach their crossroads and hopefully they make the right choice. The story picks up right after the second book left off. Jim and his boys are trying to figure out who the next soul is going to be. No one wants to tell them and I don’t think it's fair that Devina gets a head start by always knowing who the person is. Ugh! Good news is that Jim find a way and sets out to find this person. I don’t agree with the method since its playing with the devil, but my boy has to do what he has to do in order to win. So, who is our next soul? It’s the new detective in Caldwell PD, Thomas “Veck” DelVecchio, Jr.! You might remember him from Lover Unleashed. He has a little snippet there. Did I mention he's hot too? Oh, and Detective De La Cruz is back. Veck's dad is a famous serial killer and Veck is thinking that since he has his daddy's genes, he is just like him. But just because you have a short temper, it doesn’t mean you are a serial killer. Or does it? Hmmm… When Veck is being suspected of brutally attacking, a killer, Internal affairs officer, Sophia Reilly is assigned to monitor Veck. Little does she know that she and Veck will end up mixing "business with pleasure" and a little bit more than she bargained for. But when Veck is at his "crossroads", will he choose the correct path, or let his ideas of him being just like his father get to him?

I know some people disliked the way that J.R. Ward crossed some of the characters from BDB to The Fallen Angels series. Well, me personally, I thought it was brilliant. I am in love with both series and I just can't seem to get enough of both of them. Plus, who doesn’t like to read about The Brothers in between our long year breaks? I know I do. I totally recommend Envy and if you haven't started reading this series, I strongly recommend you do so, like now.
