Another 2018 catch up, I know I should probably let it go and just focus on the 2019 catch up, but I am still in stubborn mode, lol.
Welcome to round two of the battle of good vs. evil, where angels and demons are battling for seven souls for mankind. In this book we meet age fighter Issac and his public defender Grier. They are an odd couple, but the romance part of the book starts out strong the way you expect things to be in JR Ward books. Sadly for me that is where the book kind of stayed. It stuttered and for me didn’t really reach it’s full potential.
So is it good or bad?
That doesn’t mean it is a bad book, it isn’t. I enjoyed it and I enjoyed it enough that I will likely read the third book when I get to it on my TBR list. It just fell a little short for me compared to what I have gotten from other JR Ward books. It feels a little bit like she took the easy way out on some things and rather then digging into the meat of certain aspects. The plot could go so much deeper and in places where it should it really just doesn’t.
Aside from that the editor kind of fell down on the job on this one. I am not perfect with my grammar at all and I know that. So when I catch multiple issues, you know it is a little bad (Lol). I always feel a little cheated when you can clearly see an editor missed things, because they get paid not to miss things.
