Book Review: Rapture – J.R. Ward

Rapture (The Fallen Angels, #4)
Mels Carmichael, reporter for the Cadwell Courier Journal, gets the shock of her life when a man stumbles in front of her car outside the local cemetery.  After the accident, his amnesia is just the kind of mystery she likes to solve, but she soon discovers they’re in over their heads with his past.  Over their heads with passion too.  As shadows walk the line between reality and another realm, and her lover’s memory begins to come back, the two of them learn that nothing is truly dead and buried.  Especially when you’re trapped in a no-holds-barred war between angels and demons.  With a soul on the line, and Mel’s heart at risk, what in Heaven—or in Hell—will it take to save them both?

3/5 stars (liked it)
I can always count on J.R. Ward to give me a book that will be steamy.  This book has Mathias, a character from the previous book, except this time he has amnesia and a woman in his life.  So Jim & Devina get a re-do on his soul, although the last one does count.  I thought the book was a little repetitive in terms of how the other books have been.  Also seems like all the male characters are about the same in her books.  Although she does know how to write steamy scenes.  Overall a good book and the ending with Devina and Jim surprised me a little bit.  I will definitely keep reading these books.
