Review: Covet

I have to admit that I have been in love with J.R. Ward ever since her first book came out.  She brought a breath of fresh air to the vampire genre that was sorely needed.  So needless to say, I was excited when the first book of her new series made it to my doorstep.

COVET is the first book in her Fallen Angels series.  It is based the concept that God and the Devil are playing a game similar to football with the lives of humans and the big guys are getting bored with the game.  Both sides had to agree on one player (the quarterback) who will be helping others who are the crossroads between good and evil.  Jim, who is the quarterback, is a man that done great evil in the past yet is also capable of great good.  He comes into the life of Vin who has come decisions to make. 

I really enjoyed this book.  It starts off with a bang then slows down for a bit while all the players are introduced.  Then the story starts to romp along.  Well worth reading and I give it a 3.5 out of 5.  I would have rated it higher except for that slowdown.
