Saved by the angel sent to kill them, four half-angel boys are trained and employed as Heaven’s assassins. Jarrid and his nephilim brothers are raised as members of The Eternal Order, and must enforce Heaven’s laws by hunting down those who defy the Directorate. His only shot at freedom is Ascension, but his employers won’t permit the ancient ritual. Then Jarrid learns a Renegade angel is in Detroit. Such a high-level takedown is the answer to his prayers—all the leverage he needs to Ascend. For freedom, Jarrid is willing to do anything to lure his elusive enemy out of hiding. Even use an innocent woman as bait. News reporter Ionie Gifford has no clue an angel outlaw wants her dead. She agrees to help Jarrid, the enigmatic nephilim with penetrating silver eyes and a worship-worthy body, but only because he accepts her terms. He’s her all-access pass into the city’s supernatural underworld where she hopes to locate her mother’s killer.
Blindsided by Ionie's beauty and tenacity, Jarrid soon finds the eternity-old glacier around his heart thawing. With duty and desire at war within him, he’s forced to make a choice—either save Ionie from the trap he snared and stay chained to Heaven, or allow her to become collateral damage.
The book is totally a sassy, saucy and sexy romance. The story is told in very delicate and breathtaking. I like the pacing of the book, I cant believe I can finish the book, and this is quite important for me as a reader. The characters might be one of the reason the story so compelling and interesting. I can never get tired of the romance, including some heart-racing romance with thrilling scenes. I was like begging for more, and even it's paranormal or urban, it is still as good as any other romance books. I'm looking forward the author's new work in future.
