What a great paranormal romance. This was my first time reading this author and I have to say I am now a big fan. This story was action packed and emotionally intense. I'm a sucker for the tortured hero story line and Phenex was a great example of how well it can be done.
The story begins when Sofia, a human, is looking for a missing friend. She goes in to a nightclub unaware that it is a club for vampires. While looking for her friend she runs into Phenex, the beautiful and mysterious singer of the club. Phenex was the Angel of Song before he fell from heaven. After thousands of years as a high lord in hell Phenex is now working as an assassin for the angels. Sofia witnesses a violent vampire act and lands herself in the middle of a vampire war. For some reason Sofia and Phenex are drawn to each other and Phenex finds himself volunteering to protect her.
What follows next is an exciting adventure and a touching romance. Phenex has suffered for many years over his choice to fall. His character is filled with grief and guilt and he hides his despair behind isolation and having a difficult personality. The author does a great job of unfolding and developing the relationship between Sofia and Phenex. Her characters are well written and you could feel Phenex's overwhelming pain as he comes to term with his past & all he had lost.
If you are a fan of paranormal romances I highly recommend this one. It is fast paced and has a unique story line as well as a wonderful romance and some sexy scenes.
The road to Hell is paved with good intentions. At least, that's how it seems to Sofia Rivera when her attempt to help a friend ends in a blood-soaked confrontation with creatures that aren't even supposed to exist. With a group of rogue vampires determined not to leave a single witness to their violence hot on her heels, Sofia finds herself saddled with an immortal bodyguard—Phenex, the fallen Angel of Song.
While the vampire king roots out the corruption threatening to take down his underworld kingdom, Sofia will have to deal with a fallen angel whose dark beauty is often at odds with his ornery nature. Slowly, Sofia and Phenex give in to the strange attraction neither can deny. And as the darkness closes in around them, Phenex begins to wonder whether even the wickedest Fallen might find his own happyending...and his heart.
