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!
During her non-reading time you can find her hanging with her rescue furr children named after book characters: Lizzie a beautiful cattle dog mix (Pound Pup), Cinder a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Pound Pup), and Minerva a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Foster Fail). Gathering with friends and family, attending conventions, watching movies/tv shows, rooting for the 49rs, and crocheting.
