I love Ward and i love the BDB series and thought no way can it beat or be as good as the BDB and I truly didn't want to be disappointed but GOD was I EVER MORE WRONG than in that moment of crazy thinking. I said it before and I will say it again its J R Ward how can she be anything but AWESOME!
This story is classic Ward with the amazing characters that and beautiful settings that you honestly feel if you were close your eyes that you would see them or could feel them. This book was a such a surprise when it really should have been.
The characters were truly amazing and I made no attempt to hide my love for Jim. All the Character were beautifully written even Devina was eerily beautiful. MT was heartbreak but strong, Vin was hard but soft, complicated yet easy to relate to. I for some reason can't get past how much I loved Jim. I thought him to the be one of the best if not the best character I have ever read. As for Eddie and Adrian well its a little harder for me. My first impression of Eddie was I like him, he is solid and not very talkative but seems to be trust worthy. My impression for Adrian is I don't want to like him, I didn't trust him but part of me did. I liked him a lot. The only thing I didn't like and still don't like is that they lied to him and didn't tell him what he should have known and what he should know now. I'm not a fan of "NEED TO BASIS" stuff. I feel kind of bad not being more into the MT&V story line and being more into the Jim story line because it's not like it was heartwarming and wonderful because it was. I truly loved this book and can't wait for the next.
oh and a shout out to my TREZ god I love him too!!! I know I'm probably missing so many good points of this book and not covering everything i Should but yeah just read the book lol... ...more

I was truly amazed at how J R was able to pack so much into such a short story. She has yet to not amaze me with her writing. My heart jump right into the pages of her story and fell in love with main character because he was so fragile even though in so many ways he wasn't. I love how Claire opened herself to him and was so soft and loving with him. I recommend this book to anyone who loves J R Ward!!!!...more
I have tried to Avoid this review not because I didn't like book because I did. Or because i didn't like Butch because I love me some Butch. Fine I'llI have tried to Avoid this review not because I didn't like book because I did. Or because i didn't like Butch because I love me some Butch. Fine I'll just come right out and say it.... I HATE MARISSA!!!! Don't beat me up because I will say this I had more respect for her at the end of this book than I did before. I just couldn't connect with her she drove me insane. I'm happy for butch though truly I am but man could it have been V instead lol. I don't care someone else out there I know feels the same way I do. But truly I'm glad that V and Butch didn't hook up cause it would have been all wrong for Butch and for V both. But damn a girl can dream. I have to say it was really funny reading about V watching Butch with Marissa. Deep down I know that V does love Butch and may have been attracted to him since he doesn't have issues with being with men but it was In Love LOVE, and Rock on for Butch for knowing and admitting to feeling something as well maybe not at intense at V but still. Also Butch being taken and hurt by the Omega (let me at 'em let me at 'em) and V being able to heal him. I'm also glad that Butch could become one of them and feel that he truly belonged somewhere that was so easy to relate to. Now he had a purpose and he and V will be bound together by so many things. I love that we got a deeper look at V and Gifts as well as his taste for hard core BDSM. I have to say that had this story been all about Butch (which isn't the problem)and Marissa I don't know if I could have read the whole thing. ...more

This the second book in the Series where we meet Mary Luce , John Mathew and Bella, and we really get a sense of who Rhage is. What was so funny to be was that Rhage was painted as a Big time Womanizer and I never really saw that maybe when I reread I will but did totally see the who being so beautiful thing and why the brothers call him Hollywood. In the first book I saw the funny haa haa antics of a while and crazy guy and wasn't sure if he would or could be more than that. I knew about the beast but had no idea how much it hurt him I thought it almost to cruel of the scribe virgin and honestly it made me very angry with her. Actually I'm more angry with her than not in most all of the books. I loved how Rhage Picked on Vishous and Butch. Oh and Mary geez where do start with Mary she is amazing and strong and kind and loving. And becomes one of the most important people in that house. My heart broke when she told Rhage she was dying and it broke again when he gave her up to save her life. I loved how the brothers stood behind him and gave him the time he needed with her after he let them know she was dying and you feel how much they hurt for him. And for as mad at the scribe as I was I so excited when she burst through the doors and found Rhage and how funny and cute and great it was to know the fear he felt then the joy. Now John Mathew I liked him from the very beginning. I loved how Thor too him in and how he felt whole almost knowing who he was. But I didn't like how he and Mary just never talked acknowledged each other after that. And still don't really... That's also the same about Beth and him. I mean it seemed like a big deal when every time John Matthew saw Beth that he would pass out or something and now there's nothing. And Zadist and Bella OH my GOD!!! and that Creepy Nasty Mr. O.... This book lived up the first one no doubt... ...more
Zadist is the Most Complicated Character that have ever read Followed up Closely by Vishous but still his pain and Torment is so heart breaking I thinZadist is the Most Complicated Character that have ever read Followed up Closely by Vishous but still his pain and Torment is so heart breaking I think I cried the minute I opened the book. I know this book is listed at ROMANCE but it's just so much more than that. I hate that Bella was taken and treated the way she was buy Mr. O but I also think that It helped Zadist Connect to Bella even more. God they had such a great love story. It was so hard to see the Dark eyed Zadist fighting to break free but so rewarding to see that he did. I also loved being able to see the interaction between Z and his brother Phury. I am going to feel bad for saying this but I'm glad that Phury has issues because I was stating to worry about him not having any issues. I also loved that we get to see the others and the stories keep moving but I HATE HATE HATE what happened to Wellsie...GRRR... and really Vishous what's up with him? The Butch Drink this thing? HMMM doesn't anyone else but me love how Weird those two are? Oh and Mary god I love Mary!!! ...more
I wish that I could write a Review that would justify how amazing I thought this book to be and the series with it. I had no Idea about and never hearI wish that I could write a Review that would justify how amazing I thought this book to be and the series with it. I had no Idea about and never heard a word or whisper about J.R. Ward and her books. I was in a Walden's and was just browsing and this red paperback book caught my eye. I didn't get it down just looked at it for minute(this part is to me a testament of how great the series is)and this stranger to me came up and said oh it's so worth reading. So I bought it.
I won't lie it did set in my desk at work forever because the first part of the book even though I loved it was very slow and I couldn't get into it. I was thinking to myself that the stranger who said it was worth it, was crazy. But because I had paid for it I decided I am going to read this.
I took it home forced myself through the first little bit (by little bit I mean the first half of the first chapter) and fell in love with a world that I'm happy I could indulge in and a to be a honest an bit sad that I am not a part of and that it's not real. I see what I'm saying and it sounds crazy right but honestly what is a good book if not something that makes you feel so strongly. That you would have these outrageous beyond life characters that your heart would break and beat and jump with. In my opinion it takes a great author to do that. (I truly believe I have found one)
Beth and Wrath, first off his name is Wrath how hot is that, second he is total hot Alpha Male and Beth well I just feel the sun sets and rises with her. She is my Second Favorite Female so Far specially with how she got all crazy this my man I will kill you if you touch him when he was hurt. It was so very awesome to so see the girl rescue the guy and with such force.
And oh my god the brothers whoa FAN ME NOW!!! I loved them all Even Zadist who is my 3rd Favorite Brother. They just have that OH WOW above and beyond dark, pain, strong, alpha WHOO WAAA. Even Butch who well I have to admit he is pretty freaking awesome to be a human in that world and still be kicking. (LOL I hope that makes sense if not I'm sorry it's just the way my brain works) I don't really want to talk about the other brother that much and how I feel about them till I get to book for them. So I will leave my review as this... Even though I had trouble getting through the first half of the first chapter the rest of the book cleared any doubt in my mind that this book is a 5 STAR book. A True MUST READ!!! ...more

The description on the back of the book sounded right up my alley. It for the most part was, except something didn't really fit for me. I loved the characters, so it wasn't that. I don't know I wish I could narrow it down but I can't. All I can say is that the book on a whole disappointed me. Still thought give it a try because there were funny moments and even cute ones. This book may work for you, and I could have just read it at a bad time. ...more
This was a cute read, the hero and the heroine were definitely to very great characters. I liked John enough to be happy he ended up with Claire. But This was a cute read, the hero and the heroine were definitely to very great characters. I liked John enough to be happy he ended up with Claire. But throughout the book I was completely captivated by Claire, her evil moments made the entire book for me. I liked that this book had a somewhat more realistic outlook on time truly needed to fall in love. They ended up getting I think about 9 days when usually in stories like this they only get 2 or 3. But of course there were some things I had a few issues with. I didn't like how there was just to much happening to Claire I mean really, at first it was cute in a wow she had a bad day kind of way. Then after that the issues got bigger and it wasn't very believable I mean I found myself starting to not care that she was being hurt. But all in all it was a cute read not really greatly remember except for Claire and her Evil Moments. ...more

The dialog between the two was a little lacking as well. The premise of the book was wonderful and was fully expecting a great story. It had a happily ever after which was good but I just couldn't bring myself to care....more

IThis was a fun and fast read, witty and steamy, perfect for rainy day or if you looking for a humor filled read that doesn't need a lot of thinking.

I don' t really know but about a year ago or maybe more I put this book down marking my spot on page 176... I never picked it back up... It stayed in my shelf and collected dust. I had every intention of finishing it. I even bought book number 3 that I now won't be reading. It couldn't hold my interest. I thought I would struggle with it some because it was hard for me to finish book number 4 of her first dragon series but I didn't think I wouldn't finish it. I hate that I'm not but every time I try to pick it up to read it I get disgusted by how much I'm really just not wanting to. I hope that May and Gabriel (who I was excited for in book 1) find happiness. I know they will but I just can't care anymore. I find that very sad too...
I give it a one star because I really just don't think its right to rate a book you can't finish with anything higher. ...more
