Review: Dark Lover- by J.R. Ward



In the shadows of the night in Caldwell, New York, there's a deadly turf war going on between vampires and their slayers. There also exists a secret band of brothers like no other - six vampire warriors, defenders of their race. Among them, none relishes killing their enemies more than Wrath, the leader of the Black Dagger Brotherhood...

The only purebred vampire left on the planet, Wrath has a score to settle with the slayers who murdered his parents centuries ago. But when one of his most trusted fighters is killed- orphaning a half-breed daughter unaware of her heritage or her fate - Wrath must usher the beautiful female into the world of the undead…

Racked by a restlessness in her body that wasn't there before, Beth Randall is helpless against the dangerously sexy man who comes to her at night with shadows in his eyes. His tales of brotherhood and blood frighten her. But his touch ignites a dawning hunger that threatens to consume them both...

Dark Lover is the first novel in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series by J.R. Ward. I must sheepishly admit that I've had this sitting on my shelf for months. The whole time I've heard nothing but wonderful things about this series, yet I still didn't pick it up. Stupid. I LOVED this book. All of the characters in it have me totally smitten. I want to be as wonderfully strong as Beth, and I would be happy having any of the the Brothers...well probably, since I have only read book one, I reserve the right to change my mind. This was a steamy read, without going overboard at all. Mystery, fighting, sex, love, leather. I'm sold!

Glad you liked it! I LOVE this series so much and Wrath and Beth are definitely up there on my favorite list. V of course is at the very top. I really hope you like the rest of the series. Not every book in the series is my favorite but they are all a necessary read.
