Zhubaal, is the Grim Reaper's fallen angel assistant. On his days off, he spends his time searching for the angel he lost a century ago. Her soul was reincarnated and given a second chance. Meanwhile Z is losing hope he will ever find her and fulfil the oath he made to her all those years ago. (For this alone I would read the book - a man who kept his promise). Yep, I'm loving Z for trying hard to keep his promise under all obstacles most of them female prancing their half naked bodies in front of him, but while he really didn't have a true physical reaction to many of them, in walks Vex.
The offspring of two fallen angels, Vex is an emim. In other words, beautiful, badass, hated by both sides and a wonder to behold. I love Vex. I want to be Vex when I grow up. Wait. I am a grown up. Dammit. I got screwed. Can we go back in time and turn me into Vex? Cause the woman seriously has some skills in heels and i want those like for real. Seriously. Ione worked her magic so I could truly see every action scene unfold before my eyes. And I really really do not want to wobble in heels, so please someone create the time machine thingy so I can be Vex.
When these two come together it is sweet, sexy, hot, steamy, a bit of innocence and refreshing. If I am Vex, Z's lips can wander wherever they like because that man has some natural talents. One of the best things I liked about the novella is that....wait for it....Z admits that he was wrong. Don't faint ladies. It is rare. We know this. We live it every day. It is highly unusual for a man to admit he was wrong, but in the perfect world of romance, they do it all the time. Which is why I am now in love with Zhubaal.
Zhubaal, fallen angel assistant to the Grim Reaper, has spent decades searching for the angel he loved and lost nearly a century ago. Not even her death can keep him from trying to find her, not when he knows she’s been given a second chance at life in a new body. But as time passes, he’s losing hope, and he wonders how much longer he can hold to the oath he swore to her so long ago…
As an emim, the wingless offspring of two fallen angels, Vex has always felt like a second-class citizen. But if she manages to secure a deal with the Grim Reaper — by any means necessary — she will have earned her place in the world. The only obstacle in the way of her plan is a sexy hardass called Z, who seems determined to thwart her at every turn. Soon it becomes clear that they have a powerful connection rooted in the past…but can any vow stand the test of time?
