Β Forbidden fruit is always the sweetest…

…and no one knows that better than Sammy Divine, High Prince of Darkness. Once an angel, now cast down, Sammy’s out to prove he’s not the only angel who can be led into temptation…

Hope Henderson’s sister has disappeared without a trace, and Hope will do anything to find her–even make a deal with the Devil. An ancient text holds the key to unspeakable power, and it’s the Archangel Gabriel’s job to make sure it stays hidden, even if he has to become human to do it. Lives, love and the fate of the world hang in the balance, as Hope and Gabriel learn that when passion’s involved, it may be impossible to withstand a devil named desire.

First Thought When Finished: I *heart* Sammy! (Somehow it feels a little wrong to say that LOL)

What I Loved: To be honest, I wasn’t sure how I would feel about Gabe. I love Gabe and Sammy’s brotherly banter but I wasn’t sure I could see him as a love interest. Boy was I wrong! I loved Gabe as a leading man. I thought he was just yummy to the extreme (breaking out my 80s lingo). He just radiated the “fall in love with me” vibe that I love in my leading men. His journey from angel to man in love was an interesting twist in this world. I also loved Sammy’s side story. It is fun seeing Sammy as a dad and his son is just the perfect one to bring out Sammy’s soft side.

What I Liked: Though I didn’t love Hope, I did like how clearly loyal she was to her sister, Charity (who I can’t wait to learn more about). I liked that Hope was willing to do almost anything to get Charity back and keep her safe. Hope had so many spot-on reactions to her circumstances that at times I felt like she deserved a break. I think the chemistry between her and Gabe was a little rushed but by the end I was really liking them as a couple.

What made me go huh?: I felt the love story was a little rushed but by the end I was rooting for Gabe and Hope.

Final Thought: Great edition to the series!

  1. Aaah! I'm gone for not even a week and you get a facelift! Lol. I love the look though, even if it shocked me when I first clicked out of my Google Reader! 

    P.S. Voted for you for IBBA. Here's hoping you get to go! πŸ™‚

    • thegeekyblogger

       Awww thank you πŸ™‚

      You didn't miss much—I was down for a week while I moved to WordPress πŸ™‚  It was a lot of fun πŸ™‚

  2. OMG! Love the blog look!! Wanna do mine? πŸ˜€ *flutters eyelashes*

    I agree about this book. I loved it… Sammy and Gabe! The romance did feel rushed but it still worked in the end. 

    • thegeekyblogger

       hehe you are a goof (and way better at graphics)!

      Yep Sammy and Gabe were the highlight for me.  The end *sigh*

  3. LOL- Nice cover…:D

    Love the new layout and the new look, your little Felicia at the top is fun…:D Was it easy switching to WordPress?

    • thegeekyblogger

       It wasn't as bad as I thought….

      There is some little things that need to be done to make it fully functional (as of yet) but it wasn't that bad.  I wish I would have done it years ago though LOL

  4. OMGosh, Felicia!!! You're blog is SOOOO cute! I absolutely LOVE it!! I really need to just switch to WordPress. Every time I see a new blog it's all I can think of. It's just so amazing! 

    Yeah, I think I may like this book for the sheer fact that it's PNR and I kinda expect the rushed relationship. I do hate when they do it, though. I don't believe in the whole love at first sight thing, so that's usually when it gets under my skin. But the cover *pets cover* it's so pretty!!

    ps. I'm so glad you're blog is back up! *huggles*

    • thegeekyblogger

      It wasn't so much insta love but it was nothing, nothing, and then BAM!  Though it also made me love the book because they took time with their individual stories πŸ™‚  Plus I love me some Sammy and he was in this one quite a bit!


      It is so nice to be back πŸ™‚

    • thegeekyblogger

       LOL Yep there was no easy way to get everything to direct over πŸ™  I am thinking of starting a phone tree for the next person that moves platforms!  Then we all just call each other LOL

      • A few months ago I came across a blog I had just forgotten since it did not show up in my dashboard, my memory is horrid πŸ˜‰
         But I am back now 

        • thegeekyblogger

           Mine is too!  I will forget things until they are right in front of my face πŸ™‚

  5. As if the cover wasn't enough to convince me that I must read this book! Brotherly banter is the best!

    P.S. Turns out that I am still getting e-mails from the old feed, so I'm gonna unsubscribe from the new one because that one sends me an e-mail every time there is a new post and the old one just sends me one email with all the posts included. πŸ™‚

    • thegeekyblogger

       AWESOME!  I did switch over my feedburner so I was HOPING that picked up πŸ™‚ 

      Oh and the brother banter is awesome.  What Gabe does for Sammy in the end will just warm your little heart!

    • thegeekyblogger

       I think you would like them.  I haven't read the "parent" series to this one but Nicki shows up in these books!

  6. I think I would really like this series, I'll have to add it to the ever-growing list. I mean just look at that cover! He wants me to pet him. Wait. No. Read him. He wants me to read him:) Obviously. Love when I'm not sure about a hero initially and he turns out to be amazing!

    • thegeekyblogger

       LOL Yes it does yell to be petted!  Since Sammy is on the front of all his books they are all just as delectable πŸ™‚
