Feeling Bookish

We haven't had a good book chat in a while and I feel that I am neglecting the "Stories" side of the blog, also, I do not have a picture ready yet of my latest knitting.

I have recently finished Covet, by J.R.Ward. This is my first time ready J.R. Ward and I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed it. Check out her webpage. Branching out in my fiction reading to things other than vampires, these fallen angels are just as captivating! Be warned if are sensitive to language, the book is PG 13. However, I  couldn't put it down. I downloaded it from my local library and put it on my iPad using Overdrive (see previous post on Overdrive here.

Now the authors website had a great description of the book, it is a story of fallen angels and how they are here among us to help those who are at a cross roads in their life. The main character Jim, nearly killed in an accident and in exchange for being sent back to his life he must help someone else. He is sent two fallen angels to help him. But things go south pretty quickly and Jim finds that helping his new friend (Vin)  isn't so easy after all, his friend is arrested for beating his ex-girlfriend (who by the way is one bad @#$ demon herself) and a single mother (Marie-Terese) on the run for her mafia boyfriend has turned to prostitution and is in need of turning her life around as well. Jim has to help them both see that they belong together while trying to rid Vin of his demon ex-girlfriend.  I don't want to give it all away, but it is quite good and I can't wait to read the next in the Fallen Angel series.
