Summary from Goodreads:
He’ll destroy everything
and everyone to save her…including himself.
Easton doesn’t believe in love. He
believes in death. Darkness. Sin. As a reaper for Hell, it’s all he’s known for
more than four hundred years. So when he gets slapped with the job of training
the boss’s daughter, an angel that knows nothing but joy, he knows he’s in for
a world of trouble.
Though he’s made it clear he wants
nothing to do with her outside of work, Gwen will do whatever it takes to get
close to the dark and wounded reaper—even taint her angelic image and become a
reaper herself. But in all her planning, she forgot to factor in one thing—how
far the demons Easton doomed to Hell will go for revenge.
When the dangers of the Hell
threaten Gwen, Easton will destroy everything and everyone to save her. But as
the darkness closes in, will he be able to save himself?
“What do you want, Gwen?” he whispered.
I stared at his chest, breathing hard, heart beating a frantic
rhythm. “I want to touch you. And I don’t want you to stop me.”
He hesitated, but when I ran my fingers over the criss-cross
pattern of raised white scars that slashed across his ribs, he didn’t stop me.
“Are these from when you were alive?”
He tensed, but allowed me
to keep exploring him.
I looked up. “Why did you keep them?”
His eyes searched mine. A muscle in his jaw flexed. “So I would never forget how I
got them, why I’m here…what I lost.”
“They’re beautiful,” I whispered.
He closed his eyes and exhaled harshly. He was struggling,
fighting some internal battle to give me this, to accept joy in return.
I resisted the sudden, overwhelming urge to close the space
between us, to press my lips to his. Something so simple, and yet it felt
bigger than the two of us put together. That should have scared me. If I gave
in to such urges, I could be cast out, stripped of everything that made me my father’s daughter. But it
didn’t scare me. It exhilarated me. In the back of my mind I could hear Sky’s
Aren’t you tempted? Gwen, what if you fall?
I was. I wanted it with every fiber of this body. Every part of me
felt jittery with want and anticipation. The sweet, addictive desire rolling
off him told me he wanted it, too. Easton reached up and touched my chin, his
fingers like a magnet drawing me in.
“I’m about to kiss you, Red,” he said, voice rough. “You should
probably stop me.”

scattered in a wave of glittery particles around us. Fear flooded her eyes and
she took a step back.

don’t look like an angel. That’s all.”
