About the book:
Redemption isn't a word Jim Heron knows much about - his specialty is revenge and, to him, sin is all relative. But everything changes when he becomes a fallen angel and is charged with saving the souls of seven people from the seven deadly sins. And failure is not an option. Vin Di Pietro long ago gave himself up to his business - until fate intervenes in the form of a tough-talking, Harley-riding, self-professed saviour, and a woman who makes him question his destiny. With an ancient evil ready to claim him, Vin has to work with a fallen angel not only to win his beloved over...but to redeem his very soul.
I picked up this book as i love the BDB boys. Although it is a completely different book to those so i wouldn't want to compare it, so that is the only reference i will make to my boys. This book is about Jim who has had a very chequered past , but then everything changes when he dies only to become a fallen angel with tasks that he must complete in order for the world as we know it to stay exactly the same as it has always been. We also meet Vin who is a business man only interested in money and how to get more everything in his life is about what he can buy and what he will get out of it until he meets Jim and goes out for a drink, then his life changes with one look from a very special woman. With Jim trying to save Vin from a destiny of evil in order to complete his first task, and that's when things start to get difficult.
I loved this book from the start Ward has an amazing way with words drawing you into the whole story line and captivating readers into always wanting more from her characters. Everything is always described in such a way that you always know whats going on, but want to find out what is going to happen next, what relationships are going to be formed and how they will pan out in the grand scheme of things. I will definitely be heading for the next book in this series as i find Wards work so compelling to read even if its not the first time you have read the book you will definitely want to re read it at a later date.
