PNR Review: Rapture: A Novel of the Fallen Angels [Hardcover]

I've finished "Rapture" the 4th book in her Fallen Angels series by J.R. Ward.

Product Description

Out of the wickedly inventive imagination of #1 New York Times bestselling author J.R. Ward comes a world where sin and salvation collide in a battle for the future of mankind — where a cynical fallen angel struggles against the seven deadly sins and a demon’s lure over seven chosen souls …

Mels Carmichael, reporter for the Caldwell 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 Mels’s heart at risk, what in Heaven — or in Hell — will it take to save them both?

My Review:

Matthias is given a second chance because Devina cheated.  He wakes up on Jim Heron's graveyard naked and cold as the day he was born.  He manages to stumble out of the graveyard right into the path of Mel Carmichael's car which sends him to the hospital with injuries and memory loss.

Mels Carmichael is the local newspaper reporter and she coping with the loss of her father and her awkward relationship with her mother.  She agrees to help Matthias in discovering who is really is.  Jim believes Mel is the one to save Matthias this time.

This is a darker series than her Black Dagger Brotherhood series with truly evil and vile villains.  I didn't really feel the connection between Mel and Matthias because mostly she just helped him with his investigation but they did share some steamy kisses though.
