      SpoilersBlah this book was just okay for me. I didn't really care for the love story part of this book. Veck the hero was likable. The heroine Reilly on the other hand I couldn't stand. The whole book she tells Veck that he can trust her and tell her anything. Then when a bad guy sets Veck up she believes the bad guy. She turns her back on Veck when he needs her most. She not only breaks up with him, without a reason she helps try to build a legal case against him with the aim of putting him in [...]

      Really!? How did I not know earlier that the hero of this book was going to be Thomas “Veck” DelVecchio, Jr from Lover UnleashedGah, how awesome is this? I love the crossover. This must mean we'll also get to see his partnerJose del la Cruz, yippee. Endless possibilities here; Butch sightings, Lessers, The Band of Bastards (Throe) and the subsequent headaches leftover from his scrubbing. The year long wait for Tohr's book just got a little easier! You rock warden.*Confirmation given at Ward' [...]

      Despite a few slow parts, I found this latest Fallen Angels book very entertaining. And you know who (I think) is the most entertaining character of this whole series? Devina! She's soooo evil, she soooo bad--that she's good! (And I find her much more interesting than Ward's BDB villain, the Omega.) I'm really getting into her twisted relationship with the 'savior' Jim, and how she desires him so much, and how he seems to have the upper hand with her and is using her weakness for him against her [...]

      I didn't care much for Detective DelVecchio when JR Ward introduced him in Lover Unleashed. In fact, I wondered what the hell his side-story was even doing in that book, since it had little or no relation to anything else in the storyline. Obviously, the plan was drive Black Dagger Brotherhood fans to the Fallen Angel series and I think the idea was kind of off-putting. I would have read this book anyway, but I hated the idea that Ward stuffed its set-up into LU a novel that was already fracture [...]

      Caldwell is the PNR/UF version of Sunnydale (from Buffy, just in case you live under a rock!), all the supernatural shit goes down there! You have a Brotherhood of vampires and now we are battling demons to make sure Hell doesn't come bubbling up. Sounds like a crappy place to live, you are likely to either be killed by the Omega or have your soul destroyed by a demon; however, the payoff may just be worth it, Caldwell also seems to be the centre of the hot-man-universe packed full of gorgeous m [...]

      This book had so much of what I love about JR Ward’s books. I like how she writes male protagonists and their interactions with each other. Ward has an interesting idea on the urban fantasy world, she makes it fun to read. I did feel it was too long, I ended up skimming some parts and felt I did not miss anything. Normally I really enjoy different points of view, Wards seems to do this well in her BDB series but the switches from Nigel, to Colin, to Sophia, to Veck and back and forth seemed to [...]

      Rating Clarification: 1.5 StarsDashed Hopes.After readingCrave (book 2)I thought I was done with this series for good but I decided to give it another final attempt. Well, it didn't pay off. I didn't dislike Envy, but I didn't like it either. I just wasn't into it, I wasn't interested. Besides I have never been interested in police/detective/crime plots, not in books or movies or TV series; that genre is simply not my cup of tea. The only parts of the books I could manage to rise some curiosity [...]

      Ugh . . . I need a witness! It can be quietly, in your own mind as to not upset your J.R. Ward group 'friends", or to keep the obvious from your lips but can someone please back me up!!Ward's faux ghetto diatribes have become the most annoying thing since parachute pants. Hammer was not badass for strutting around in 25 yards of fabric and J.R. Ward's characters are not fiercer for trying to sound like they're "Straight Outta Compton", leave that to NWA, m'kay!Here are some examples:CPDers - rea [...]

      Veck is back and he’s made a lasting impression on me!!We are first introduced to homicide detective Thomas “Veck” DelVecchio Jr. in Lover Unleashed as Jose de la Cruz’s new partner. While I wasn’t too keen on him in Lover Unleashed, I found that I loved him in Envy!What I love about JR Ward is the fact that she’s able to create complicated running plots throughout her series. In one book, there are soo many character arcs and POVs that I’m surprised that I’m not confused by it a [...]

    10. Katie on said:

      All though Envy was my least favorite so far of the Fallen Angels series, it still held my undivided attention throughout the entire book and I still finished it in 2 nights, and it definitely was still a 4 star book. Whatever Ward does, whatever twists and turns she puts within the plots that we as readers do not want to see or agree with, no matter what, the woman can create a great hero. Envy like the others in the series, has heros in abundance. Let's start with who is supposed to be our mai [...]

      4.5 stars! I really enjoyed this installment in the Fallen Angels series! I absolutely LOVED Veck and Reilly. They were attracted to each other from the get-go and didn't fight that attractioney just went with it. Of course, there's always a hurdle to get over, and they had a big one (or rather, Reilly, did), but it all worked out in the end, and they were just the sweetest frickin' couple. Loved the epilogue. Jim, of course, was once again awesome in this book. He is doing his work in stride, b [...]

    12. Mel on said:

      PAUSEDThis had me rolling my eyes constantly. The, smart tough woman who holds her own in a man's world and the guy who 'respects the hell out of her' for it. Ward's clichés are getting tiresome! (Meanwhile he's the typical self torturing hero and if she were a guy I'd say she was thinking with her dick). I'll probably read this eventually despite the shameless Envy book promotion stunt Ward pulled in Lover Unleashed (and the fact that I wasn't too crazy about Crave) . I don't like being manipu [...]

    13. Sharon ∞❥ is an emotional book junkie ❥∞ on said:

      I keep going back and forth between a 3.5 and 4 star rating, so I just went with the 4. It's not a great book but the series is getting better with each book and the ongoing background story is more and more interesting. In this book, we have Thomas DelVecchio Jr aka Veck, who finds himself in a wooded area with a serial killer who has been attacked. The problem is he can't remember if he was the one who attacked him since that's the reason he went there. Enters Sophia Reilly, Internal Affairs, [...]

    14. Sabrina on said:

      2 stars. This one started strong, but then veered into angry and just plain weird territory with Adrian, Eddie, and Jim all having nervous breakdowns every five pages. I keep thinking - um, there are supposed to be at least four more books in the series right? I'm not sure what Ward is going to do with the rest of them because everyone seems to be losing their shit right here. Yes, I get these are supremely unhappy people, but Ward always feels the need to ratchet it up a notch with scene upon s [...]

      Great series! I loved getting to know Veck better and watching him slay his demons. Can't wait to read Matthias' story!Full review to come

    16. Duchess Nicole on said:

      Major series game changers happen in this one!This heroine, Riley, started out fine but pissed me off later when she doesn't trust her man the point that he gets into really, really big trouble because she's such a suspicious *****. Veck, the hero, has both a good and an evil side that he has unknowingly kept in check his entire life. He's big and scaryd I LOVE big and scary. He's also very, very alone. He instantly feels this consuming attraction for Riley. He wants and needs a partner for life [...]

    17. Lynn on said:

      Okay, I know I have 4 stars down, but I'd really give this book about 3.5 stars. I enjoyed reading it, but there were parts of the books that I did not enjoy as much as "Vech's" storyline. Also, I am finding this series is becoming formularic (sp?). One thing I did find interesting were the Brotherhood references through out the book. Also, JR has not lost her talent at writing great sex scenes for her characters. In fact, she does a great job in one scene leaving her characters and readers hang [...]

    18. Keri on said:

      WHAT an Awesome read!!!! 5+ stars!! I love this series. Our game continues of good vs evil or in this case Jim vs Devina. Now that Jim has discovered Devina's weakness for him, he is determined to exploit that to the fullest to win the game of keeping the souls of mankind and heaven out of the devil's hands. Jim's soul to save is Thomas “Veck” DelVecchio, Jr. We met Veck in a prior BDB book. His dad is a prolific serial killer and is due to be put to death in about a week. Everyone has been [...]

      4.5 Envy Stars! These are not your typical Angels, these Angels have Fallen. And, I adore them all. They drive the book/series for me. Veck I adored, Sophia what she had going for her was that she was NOT a damsel in distress. I loved that a lot.

    20. Gwen (The Gwendolyn Reading Method) on said:

      Kinda liked book 1, eh on book 2, but book 3 I've been struggling through STRUGGLING through, I just have no interest in going further so, sadly, DNF.

    21. valee on said:

      3.5 STARS . I just wish we had the half stars system workingThings I likedThis book was way better than the previous 2. Book 1 I almost didn't finish it. Book 2 was a bit better but I still could have go on without having read it and I wouldn't feel like I had regret it. NOW THIS BOOK was just superior. The plot was way more interesting, even though the characters were almost the same. The romance between the main character definitely exceeded my expectations. I really liked them, not a couple I [...]

    22. Mandi Schreiner on said:

      Wow - I liked it!! Surprised me because I'm not a huge fan of the first two. I actually almost didn't read this one but thanks to some GR friends I took a chance.Nice romance! Sexy menage. Drama! A hero that has angst and lots of issues.A JR Ward heroine I actually liked!So I def rec this one. Kind of excited for bk 4 ;)

    23. Once Upon a Twilight on said:

      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 re [...]

    24. Laura on said:

      There are good books and then there are good books, and without fail, J.R. Ward's books, for me, seem to all fall into the latter category.After going through a bit of a dry spell with recent books, I was nervous about starting Envy, but within minutes of reading it, I knew my apprehension was unnecessary. Ward's writing has a way of literally taking me out of my "realistic" world, dropping me into Caldwell where I forget about important things like feeding myself, sleeping, etc.I loved this boo [...]

      Thomas DelVecchio Jr IS MINE!!!!!Wow, what a ride this book was! I love the fact that we first met Veck in Lover Unleashed but to tell you the truth I didn't think much of him then. He didn't excite me at all and I had no crazy major interest in reading this book, other than I wanted more Jim and Adrian and Eddy.Veck is the son of a notorious serial killer who is now serving a sentence in jail for crimes he committed long ago. He has lived his whole life with the stigma and he carries himself a [...]

      I actually liked Envy and thought that it was best of Ward's Fallen Angel books so far, but for some reason I just am not inspired to do a full-fledged review. Here are some thoughts though.I generally like Ward's style and the slang, product as nouns, and F-bombs work for her big bad-A males, but way too many characters here spout BDBisms - even the heroine has this 'voice'.It was nice that there wasn't so much of the torture, the book is still dark, just not so graphic. I really enjoyed the ro [...]

      After losing my first attempt at writing this review, I will now try and retype all my witty comments – but you all know that my first version was better, Murphy’s Law I’m afraid.J. R Ward is a word smith beyond compare. Her writing is continuously flawless, convincing, unpredictable and thoroughly enjoyable. I would rate her in the top two authors I would inspire to write like (if I had a lick of talent). Her writing style is so acutely meshed with what I love in a book that I have seriou [...]

    28. Ann on said:

      As a JRW fan, if her name's on it, I buy it. Envy, IMO, is about the same as the first 2 bks in this seriesokay; maybe I'd go so far as to say good, just not great. Her early harlequin bks that are now being re-released are cute stories, but her Black Dagger Brotherhood series is where she really shines. I liked that Veck, among others, was brought over into this story from Lover Unleased, JRW's lastest BDB bk, and that the setting is in the same town - Caldwell. Similar in that way to Covet. As [...]
