The Watchers: They were angels who lived among men millennia ago, fascinated by a fledgling human race. But when they couldn’t resist temptation, their offspring became cursed into a half existence—soulless magical beings who live for pleasure. Now these fallen angels are being hunted by the very same race their fathers once revered.

Cade was ordered to claim her for his clan. She was becoming one of them—a Watcher, soon to reach her full power—and she didn’t even realize it. Yet the moment he saw her, he knew he could never share her. Maddie was his. No matter what demons lurk in her past, no matter how much she tries to deny her body’s burning need for his, he will claim her for himself. And together they will face the battle that is brewing…

Good paranormal romance, and could turn out to be a good series. I’m not sure how many she’s planning to write, but as long as she doesn’t drag it out too long, I might be into this series. I’ve tried to get into the fallen angel/nephilim thing with other books, but this is the first time I’ve really enjoyed that part of it. Nash gives it the history something like that would require. She throws in her own quirks, which make the book feel like something new. That was really nice. I like Cade a lot, and I sort of wish she’d stretched the romance between him and Maddie out during the series. I imagine the other members of Cade’s clan will all have their chance to fall in love. I have to say I am anticipating that for Artur. He needs to get his shit together.

Anyway, there’s not too much to say. The characters are good. I connected with the characters enough to feel distress when there was conflict. I definitely want more of Cade and Maddie, but I’m also eager to get a little more of the other characters.  There’s a couple of nice twists. I really enjoyed the way everything was slowly revealed in Maddie’s dreams. Overall, Nash has built a good world with a couple of good characters and the potential for a good paranormal series. Bravo!

Prude Filter: This book contains profanity, sexual content, and violence. I suggest 18 and up.
