Welcome to our blog!
Amy and Jennifer ARE Seduced by Books. We’re both in our 30’s, moms, close friends, work together, and share many of the same interests including our love of reading. Amy grew up in Maryland and has been obsessed with Vampires for as long as she can remember. Jenn grew up in Florida and loves the furry, the fey, and the fangs, in that order. Currently we are both in Orlando, FL. When we can be pulled away from books, Amy loves to bake and Jenn loves to take pictures and scrap.
We decided to create a place where we could direct friends, and acquaintances for, book suggestions/recommendations (Jenn’s been known to talk to strangers on the train while traveling in NYC). Once we started out with a simple page, we evolved from there. Now we are sharing our book reviews, fun comments, recipes, and giveaways. We try to give reviews on new releases, pre-releases, and oldies but goodies that we read, or are reading. We’re going to be adding author interviews for established and up and coming authors soon.

Crave by J R Ward

Crave (Fallen Angels, Book 2)Seven deadly sins. Seven souls that must be saved. One more no-holds- barred battle between a fallen angel with a hardened heart and a demon with everything to lose. 

Isaac Rothe is a black ops soldier with a dark past and a grim future. The target of an assassin, he finds himself behind bars, his fate in the hands of his gorgeous public defender Grier Childe. His hot attraction to her can only lead to trouble-and that's before Jim Heron tells him his soul is in danger. Caught up in a wicked game with the demon who shadows Jim, Isaac must decide whether the soldier in him can believe that true love is the ultimate weapon against evil. (courtesy of Amazon)

I thoroughly enjoy J R Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood series, so you can imagine my excitement when she created a new series – The Fallen Angels.  This is the 2nd book in the series (Covet being the first). 

I felt this book started out a little slower than I anticipated, but it definitely picked up and took me on a twisting coaster ride.  Just when you are following along, you’re thrown a hard left that gives you that drop your stomach feeling and gets you in to find out where you’re going.  The battle for souls rolls on, this is the 2nd out of 7 and good can’t lose, can they?? 

Our lead character Grier is a hard core buttoned up female lawyer, who still wants to save any defendant she can.  On her latest pro bono case she gets match to a bad ass assassin, Isaac with a past to scare most woman off.  But that isn’t all our storyline – angels and demons must battle over who can be saved or pulled to the ‘dark side’.  A few things are a little over the top and partly wished it was a little shorter.  The story buttons up a little quicker than it took to get there.

  1. I love BDB too and this series just doesn't grab me. I'm not comparing the two - it's just that this series doesn't seem as focused. They aren't bad books just not must reads for me.

  2. Interesting review! I'm still undecided about if I want to read this book. I'll read a couple more reviews first. Thanks!
