I like Sylvia Day and I like angels.

Adrian Mitchell is the top angel, a powerful angel in charge of a special ops unit of Seraphim. His job is to kill fallen angels who are turned vampires. But although he has a job to do he messed up by falling in love with a mortal so his punishment is to love this same woman over and over again never reaching her in time before she dies.

However, he finally has her but she doesn’t remember her past or him for that matter.

This book really really reminded me of Dark Lover (Black Dagger Brotherhood #1) by J.R. Ward especially the ending.  Adrian meets the forbidden girl of his dreams over two hundred years ago so seeing her at the airport did a number on him and he instantly goes right for her.

Obviously the woman is completely oblivious of her past or even the danger of a future but she wants Adrian and throughout most of this book they do a lot of beating around the bush.

Here is what I didn’t like about the book . . .  the language during these scenes. Day uses such blunt words that I really couldn’t picture either character saying. It felt completely out of place and a bit forced. It was as if she was trying to add more of a shock factor but it really wasn’t needed. It seriously was not needed.

Other than that the story itself was well written. I was really involved in Adrian because he has so much control. Granted almost all leading strong rough men do but his control was different. It wasn’t I’m going to make you hate me and stay way from me control. But I want you around all the time I’m just not going to touch you.

Overall this book gets an 8 out of 10. Good read.
