From Booklist

Fallen angel Jim Heron must help a former fellow special ops soldier in his second outing, following Covet (2009). Since going AWOL from XOps, Isaac Rothe has been a marked man. He earns his money as an underground fighter, until he nearly kills a man in the ring and is arrested by the police. The arrest draws the attention of his former commander, the sinister Matthias, as well as Heron, who is determined to save Isaac from both Matthias and a deadly demon who wants Isaac’s soul. Isaac’s court-appointed attorney, the beautiful Grier Childe, is equally resolute in her efforts to help Isaac, even going so far as to post his bail. Sparks fly between the unlikely duo, resulting in a night of passion that shakes Isaac’s determination to flee the charges. After Grier has a frightening encounter with Matthias, Isaac realizes he must protect her, even as Heron urges him to run. The newest in Ward’s Fallen Angels series offers a sumptuous mix of danger and romance. --Kristine Huntley

J R Ward has found her groove in Crave. While I liked Covet, the first part of that novel was a little slow - not sure if Ms Ward was trying too hard to write differently from the BDB series. This time out she has her rhythm - the dialogue is snappy and the story moves quickly and smoothly (yes there is are brand names sprinkled throughout the book - but not as many as are in the BDB, and yes lots of swearing and slang, but it works, the only thing that doesn't is the typos - rather surprising- do people actually "proof" read these days or do they just use the "spell check"?). In any event, I really did enjoy this one much more than the first installment; Isaac and Grier are stronger characters and I enjoyed their story more than Marie-Terese and Vin. You learn more about Jim Heron in this installment and while his "earthly" sidekicks are an odd bunch of guys with lots of baggage (can't wait to find out more about them), they are princes compared to Nigel, Jim's "heavenly handler." This is not a 5 star for me, but a very solid 4 star and I think the series will get better and better given this installment.

As started in the first book in this series Covet, angel Jim Heron is the pawn between good and evil. After seven battles, where seven people's soul is at stake, the world will know if evil or goodness has prevailed. In Crave, we see battle number two. Isaac Rothe is a former XOps member, an extremely secretive organization that runs on intel and murder. No one leaves XOps without a bullet in their head, but Isaac has managed to escape - for now. Needing cash and to let out steam, he starts participating in illegal cage fights - until he is busted by the police. Thrown in jail, under his real name, is like a beacon to call his former boss, Matthias to him. He needs to get out pronto.

Jim owes Isaac a debt from their former XOps days and knows Matthias has thrown in the call to have Isaac taken out. Jim figures the least he can do is get Isaac out of the country - alive.

Attorney Grier Childe takes on public defender cases every so often, and the one she is handed is a doozy. Isaac is a mountain of pure muscle, and the very successful Grier can't help but set aside a little of her professionalism to drink in the sight of Isaac. Although beaten, and very rough around the edges, Grier likes what she sees.

With a brother dead from a drug overdose (who shows up as a ghost and felt very misplaced throughout the book), Grier feels the need to do something to save or protect Isaac from whatever he is running from. Isaac in turn feels the need to repay Grier for her kindness and cash to get him out of jail. But Isaac's dark world is about to descend upon them, and the light is far from the end of the tunnel.

The first half of Crave is so good! I became very excited, because for me, Covet (book one) left much to be desired.

Plot Summary: Newly minted angel Jim Heron is on a mission to save his next soul, and it appears that the target is his former black-ops comrade, Isaac Rothe. Isaac has been fighting in underground clubs to build up a bankroll, but his cover is blown when he's arrested in a raid. His public defender is Grier Childe, a top tier, ivy-league lawyer who takes charity cases every few months, and their physical attraction is immediate. When Grier posts Isaac's bail, he needs to flee to protect Grier from his former boss, but then he stays around to protect her instead.

(Fallen Angels: Book Two)

Oh, how I struggled with Crave. Normally I can blast through a J. R. Ward romance novel like a blowtorch through butter, but this one did not click with me on any level. For years now, I've heard readers grumble about her ultra-masculine heroes, but this is the first time that one of them really grated on my nerves. Isaac was the biggest, baddest, meat-head hero I've ever encountered, and I'm finally sending up the white flag. I surrender. I had a bad premonition within the first couple of pages, where it was all f-this and f-that, and sentences like this:

"As they approached, Jim's balls went tight when his green night-vision goggles picked up movement all over the place."

Okay, I get it, he's a MAN, but these kinds of mucho macho references are all over Crave like fleas on a dog. It was just too much, but I could have overlooked the alpha overload if the heroine hadn't pissed me off too. Grier reeks of wealth, class, and beauty, and we're also supposed to believe that's she's an angel on the inside.

Another soul is at the cross-roads and up for grabs in a cosmic winner-take-all between Heaven and Hell. With this second entry, Ward solidifies her new Fallen Angels series and get past some of the things that bothered me in the first book: Jim Herron, the sole entity `allowed' to influence the soul's decision, has definitely gotten his wings, and Jim's relationship with his crew - Adrian and Eddie - is beginning to gel, and there are not too many heavenly interventions - the angelic mentors didn't really grab me last time. Jim's nemesis also gains a great deal of depth with her 'help sessions' and 'her collections'.

Heaven is ahead by one soul, but Hell is up to bat and in Crave, Jim has more of a vested interest in this skirmish since several of the players are people from his not so distant human past as a black ops soldier. This when combined with the fact that I also liked the pairing for the romance better this time are also strong plusses in Crave's favor. Jim's former black ops comrade Isaac and lawyer Grier Childes both are solid characters and the intense attraction between them as they are thrown into danger together seems real - even though it is hard to imagine a HEA for a pair from such different worlds.

Crave is definitely darker than the Covet and there are some difficult to read moments when one of the characters is tortured and violated - and in the aftermath of that as well. I can see Ward's purpose in this, as it affects relationships between several characters, but it still was hard to take.

I guess the bottom line with Crave was that I enjoyed the immediate story of Isaac and Grier and thought that Crave effectively advanced the elements of the larger series arc.
