Summary: Saved by the angel sent to kill them, four half-angel boys are trained and employed as Heaven’s assassins. Jarrid and his nephilim brothers are raised as members of The Eternal Order, and must enforce Heaven’s laws by hunting down those who defy the Directorate.

His only shot at freedom is Ascension, but his employers won’t permit the ancient ritual. Then Jarrid learns a Renegade angel is in Detroit. Such a high-level take­down is the answer to his prayers—all the leverage he needs to Ascend.

For freedom, Jarrid is willing to do anything to lure his elusive enemy out of hiding.

Even use an innocent woman as bait.

News reporter Ionie Gifford has no clue an angel outlaw wants her dead. She agrees to help Jarrid, the enigmatic nephilim with penetrating silver eyes and a worship-worthy body, but only because he accepts her terms. He’s her all-access pass into the city’s supernatural underworld where she hopes to locate her mother’s killer.

Blind­sided by Ionie's beauty and tenacity, Jarrid soon finds the eternity-old glacier around his heart thawing. With duty and desire at war within him, he’s forced to make a choice—either save Ionie from the trap he snared and stay chained to Heaven, or allow her to become collateral damage.

Short Review:

This is definitely a must read. There is a whole array of supernatural characters, and humans know about them. So it's not a secret that there are beings who are "more" out there. I really liked the story of the Nephilim and each one of them was a very likeable character. Angel Bait is the story of how Jarrid uses Ionie as bait to catch a Renegade (fallen angel) in the hopes that the Directorate will take the limiter off of the Nephilim's Grace. What he didn't expect was to fall in love with her. What I liked about Jarrid and Ionie's relationship is that it can be pretty steamy, but there is an element of innocence to it too. I'm definitely looking forward to the next book in the Angel Assassins series.
