Michael’s Passion is a quick and easy read. The relatively fast pace and subtle plot twists easily hold the readers interest. The author skillfully mixes well known angelic lore and familiar names with a unique plot and imaginative secondary characters. Further, Michael and Gabriel, though clearly super-angels, are equally conflicted and have notable weaknesses. I was worried Michael and Gabriel would be typical, untouchable heroes. Luckily, that is not the case; in fact, the complete opposite is true. Michael’s apathetic attitude and Gabriel’s self-deprecating thoughts make the two compelling and entertaining to read about.
The characterization of Jahi, the unusual demon Michael encounters, was by far the best aspect of this book. Jahi is a slave turned demon whore who uses her powers of seduction to steal human souls. Jahi is relatively fed up with her current lifestyle and only sees her job as a means to an end; she easily finds solace in Michael to avoid her abusive superior. Jahi could easily have been drawn as predictable and unimaginative; fortunately, the author does a great job making Jahi not only multi-dimensional, but empowering as well. Forced into an unwanted sex-slave relationship with her superior, Agares, Jahi is happy Michael wants to protect her; however, she is equally cautious about his angel status and wonders about his true intentions. Though the two have clear chemistry, Jahi holds back, not wanting to jump from one type of slavery to another. Jahi’s characterization was realistic and liberating. It was a nice surprise to see the main female have a salacious past but refuse to let that define her. I thoroughly enjoyed that the author refrained from making Jahi just another ‘damsel in distress’ that falls head over heels for the gorgeous, hero-like angel.
Though much of the characterization and plotting is unique, the book is still riddled with allusions to beautiful people and perfectly sculpted muscles as is typical of the genre. On the other hand, the sexual scenes were tastefully written and genuinely added to the plot. Generally speaking, I really have few complaints about this book.
Michael’s Passion is a quick read that many fans of the genre will enjoy. The author expertly combines believable romance with interesting paranormal characters to create a satisfying storyline. This book has a conclusive ending, but many elements are left open, leaving one excitedly anticipating the sequel. Michael's Passion clearly earns 4 out of 4 stars. A quick warning: the book contains mature content including sexual situations and strong language and therefore may not be appropriate for everyone. I would caution those who are easily offended by such matters, especially when they directly involve angels and spiritual teachings, to refrain from reading this book.

I'm glad to hear you liked the sequel, I am definitely going to be reading that one next!

The matching with Jahi, a devil of a whore, creates quite an antithesis of a situation, the resolution of which will be interesting to find out.Looks like this is a totally a complex novel. The review is masterful, as well.
