What Members Thought

This may be the third time I've read Dark Lover, but it's the first time I've listened to the audio version. While I love the Black Dagger Brotherhood and will continue on with my audio re-read (for now), I am not impressed with the narration. Some narrators perform a book, while others simply read it. Unfortunately, the narrator, Jim Frangione, does little more than read the book when I was really hoping that he would add more depth and emotion into the world. I was expecting a great Southie ac ...more

So...I've concluded I'm just not a vamp person. Give me any other kind of paranormal and I'm down with it, but vampires? Meh. I will admit, there were some parts to this story that were intriguing, and I found the story to be a nice, welcome distraction. I really enjoyed the brothers interactions (especially their fondness for hip hop), but I wish Beth had been just a bit tougher. I didn't feel like she was fully developed as a character, whereas Wellsie, the other shellan in the storyline so fa ...more

After being attacked by a thug in an alleyway Beth has to come to terms with a new menacing presence in her life. She gets thro ...more
After reading Lover Reborn and attending the J.R. Ward signing in Cinci last weekend I had an overwhelming desire to re-read this series; especially after I started a book that couldn't really hold my attention. So I started this book when I got home from work yesterday afternoon, stayed up most the night reading and spent the day finishing it. I think I liked this book even better the second time around. This series and the Brothers are made of awesome. Well except for phuckin Phury. He can suc ...more

I could not get past the ridiculous names of every single character in this book, or that the author seems to think that once you've glommed onto a "good" word or concept, you should use it A LOT. Just Oy. I've never picked up another book by this author.

Yes, I realize I'm one of the three people on the planet who hated this book, but there it is.
