From Goodreads: Vampire hunter Elena Deveraux knows she is the best- but she does not know if even she is good enough for this job. Hired by the dangerously beautiful archangel Raphael, a being so lethal that no mortal wants his attention, Elena knows failure is not an option—even if the task is impossible.
Because this time, it’s not a wayward vamp she has to track. It’s an archangel gone bad.
The job will put Elena in the midst of a killing spree like no other—and pull her to the razor’s edge of passion. Even if the hunt does not destroy her, succumbing to Raphael’s seductive touch just might. For when archangels play, mortals break

First Thought when Finished: As I said on Twitter “Dang it all to Heck but now I feel the need to read these back to back”.
What I Loved: I am going to say it–I may be in denial (Amanda I may need to change my answer) about not liking Angel based Romance series. I have actually read quite a few in the last year that I really loved and this is no exception. Seriously, I shouldn’t have loved this book–first it is more of a UF than a PNR and it is about Angels. However, I totally loved it despite both of things. I loved that the UF part is more like J. Frost type (a couple together) and the Angel part was just Fan-FREAKING-tastic world building. LOVED LOVED LOVED it!
What I Liked: I am really liking getting to know all the characters (there are a quite a few) in little bits and pieces. Though I already have a slight crush on Jason so I want to know more!
What made me go huh?: Nothing really since I think my one little hangup is dealt with in book 2.
Audio Review: Narrated by Justine Eyre, this wasn’t my favorite audiobook but it wasn’t bad either. It just felt a little rushed at times while she was reading. That is sometimes not the narrator but a time constraint.
Final Thought: I highly recommend this book to anyone who isn’t in denial (and even if you are) about loving Angel based books 🙂
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.
