The BookWhisperer's Rating: 

Easton doesn’t believe in love. He believes in Death. Darkness. Sin. As a reaper for Hell, it’s all he’s known for over four hundred years. When he gets slapped with the job of training the boss’s daughter, an angel who 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 would do anything to get closer to the dark and wounded reaper—even taint her angelic image and join the ranks of her father’s team of reapers. But in all her planning, she forgot to factor in one thing—how far the demons Easton doomed to hell would go to get revenge.

When the dangers of the Hell threaten Gwen, Easton will do whatever it takes to save her. But as the darkness closes in on them both, will he be able to save himself?

Oh, I loved this book!  Such a wonderful story between a dark reaper and pure angel.  I loved this book so much that I want to read the first two books and learn more about the other characters that I met in this book. 

The moment Easton meets Gwen (or Red as he calls her), he is slightly captivated by her.  Something about her purity drives her through his mind constantly and after Scouts mistake on a poor soul named Tyler, Red joins Easton to track down his soul in Hell and set Tyler’s eternity straight.  However, it not an easy task to go to Hell and retrieve a soul.  Throughout the mission, Easton learns just how amazing Red is and Red learns Easton’s tortured past and the goodness that still lies inside. 

Reading Easton’s growing feelings for Red was my favorite part about this book.  His straight-out dislike for her that leads to him pushing her away and then turns into his consuming want for her.  How Red crawled under his skin and how protective he became of her was perfect. 

I also enjoyed how Fuller painted the world of Heaven and Hell.  Her Hell was such a savage place full of just terrible scenes that not even reapers could handle.  All of it was so fantastic!
