Highly recommend this to anyone who likes Redemption, reformed males, realistically happy endings, amazing heroines, and a plot that actually is key to the romance.

I'm not one for synopsises in reviews so I shall get straight to the reviewing. AMAZING. This book was truly a story of the redemption of a lost man. It chilled me. The prose is simple. I wouldn’t call this a literary masterpiece,however, it is an emotional masterpiece. It is beyond touching. There's some magic to these words. People were mad about the lack of romance, however, this series is called the black dagger brotherhood. It is a tale of each brother as they turn into a man, as they are redeemed. And redemption is about more than just romance and sex. That would be beyond shallow. Idk how many reformed rake books I have read where a woman alone saved the rake helping him realize there is no need to avenge whatever sad thing in his life happened. They get dull, boring, because in the real word healing is a lot more, it is about everyone around you, everyone, not just sexing up your girl. And it was the perfect alpha male story, he was a alpha male YET not a domineering bitch to her. It was true protection with out oppression. The sex scenes in my opinion were above reproach. The sex was not just some carnal affair, it was healing. Sex is often just written as this explicit and damn near sinful act, however, this book showed sex as healing and restorative. I can't give this book higher accolades, the only thing i didn't particularly care for was Zsadist's brother. However all i can say is Brava Ward. Brava.
