5 out of 5 stars
5 stars – I loved it!

Fane is done having someone own her and is determined to get out of Hell. When an angel is captured, she knows this might be her only chance at freedom. Together these two flee, but now both Heaven and Hell is after them. 

“Don’t tell me that the upstanding Angel lusts for this filthy Demon.”

Well hot damn, this was a wonderful enemies to lovers story. As soon as I saw this beautiful cover I knew I had to read it and it was totally worth the time. Fane is a demon who is determined to finally be free. She is tough, sassy, and has a soft heart. I loved her and her snark from the very beginning. Mihr is a proud, protective, and set in his ways angel who doesn’t know how to deal with Fane. He starts off as a stuffy angel but by the end he is a sweetheart that will do anything for Fane. 

On top of two great main characters, this story also had an awesome and adorable pet! I loved the hellcat and how Mihr accidentally bonded with it. It was just adorable seeing them interact and Mihr slowly fell in love with her. Also, I was surprised by how much I liked Fane’s friends in this one. Basically, all the characters were wonderfully written and just really fun to read about. 

Overall, Fane and Mihr’s story has been wonderful so far and I can’t get enough of these two. I am going to jump right into the next book because I need to know how their story ends. 

Trigger Warning: brief on page rape and dismemberment of an angel right at beginning; references to an abusive ex and almost rape.
