I had gotten this as a Kindle freebie a long time ago.  Of course I didn’t know that this was the prequel of the Renegade Angels  series.  I read an ARC of book one last year and I when I started reading my ARC of book two I realized that this was the prequel and had been sitting on my Kindle app patiently waiting to be read.So I started it almost at the same time as I started reading A HUNGER SO WILD, and I have to say that I enjoyed it immensely because the characters in this short story are also part of that book.  I’m not sure if I would’ve cared as much for them without the background knowledge.

Having said that, this was a great little story.  Raze is one of the Fallen but he didn’t fall for his love of a woman.  He just enjoys sex…with anything female.  But a dead body at his doorstep puts a bad ending to a night of enjoyment for him and brings him to investigate in Chicago.

Chicago where he meets Kim and she is everything he thought he would never want.  But he can’t stay with her when there’s so much danger around him.  Theirs is not a HEA but a To Be Continued.  I can’t wait!

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.

I read this before starting the books and as you said, I didn’t care for the characters. It was interesting but… not griping 🙂
