Interesting story about a Skin Worker in Las Vegas who involved herself in the work part time to pay for college while she was getting her degree and continued after graduation and acquiring her private eye's license because the money was so good. Her good friend and former Skin Worker (Rachael) came to town after blowing a fortune she inherited when her husband was killed. Her gambling problem left her in debt to the mob and she was facing the prospect of having to repay her debt on her back. T ...more

BUY STOCK IN KLEENEX!: The Black Dagger Brotherhood #8, Lover Mine

It’s finally my last review in this set of four series I downloaded—from now on it’s one at a time! J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood: Lover Mine was so emo I found myself mopping my face through a great deal of it! Oh, my John Matthew! Again with the warning—start this series at the beginning so you get the full effect!

Flashbacks abound again this go-round, mostly to Darius’ past when he first became a Brother, but his story e
I was thouroughly pleased when they put these books in groups. Becuase I'm a serious fan girl of the series and love rough and tough vampire men as much as the next vampire crazy, I've read all the books and feel a review for all of them is just a bit obsessive. But onto the good stuff. I love JR Ward's vampire series, and mostly for the fact that she does a good job of stripping the mystique of vampires and puts them into a new world that still intersects with our own reality. Though a lot of h ...more

Wards stories are incredible! I enjoyed the first four novels immensely. Novels 5 through 8 leaned a little towards long-winded, but enjoyable stories as well.

That being said, I find the fact checking of both her characters and her timelines to be in serious disrepair.
Also, her habit of shortening words to single syllables very annoying to the point where it interrupts the flow. The only time I want to lift my eyes from the page is to 'oh and ah', not to try to figure out what a 3 or 4 letter
This series is awesome, I read all the book from 1 to 11 and each book had me reading until I reached the end, i had to wait for 12 and have just ordered 13, dark, raunchy and not for the faint hearted. Each character is different and their all their stories are compelling. Must read for the secretly dirty :) and unconventional

omg, I have a new series love!!

I love Sherrilyn Kenyon and her Dark Hunters series. J. R. Wards BDB series is awesome too. It's more cut throat, and very fun to read! Very well worth reading!

Absolutely fantastic books. A must read.
4 amazing books

This serIes is amazing and erotic funny emotional and aggravating a all sometimes in the same book. My favorite is Rhevenge and John story. Love all the character.
Still loving the stories of the Black Dagger Brotherhood. I wish they'd given JR Ward a good editor, because the books have so much potential, if they had some copy work done. I didn't love book 7 as much as the others, just didn't buy the couple of Rehvenge and Ehlena as much as the others. That instalment dragged on a bit for me. I'm just confused HBO hasn't picked the series up. What a TV show these books would make.
This is probably one of my top three books in the series, along with Lover at Last and Dark Lover. I abso love John Matthew and Xhex together. They are 2nd to Quinn & Blay as my fav couple.

I read this series of books based on a review on pinterest. I enjoyed the ease at which you could read the series, I liked the character development and how easily you fell into the world of The Black Dagger Brotherhood. It isn't a book series to read if you are looking for something educational or informational, but it is delightful if you are looking for a fantasy romance style of books.
Absolutely loved this series - it got better with each book as the characters developed. I loved every line!!! Sad to say goodbye to the Brotherhood!!
Again, atrocious writing, interesting story arc. But I have the flu so it has been mindless reading for low energy days.
I was on a "trashy" novel kick, and this series foils the bill. Very much enjoyed the entire series!

There were a few slow places in each of the books, but they were excellent.
