What author names her main characters, the members of the incredibly dark and dangerous black dagger brotherhood of vampire warriors And as if that isn't hilarious enough, Ward just doesn't get enough of superlatives to describe how extremely dangerous her vampires - a bunch of interchangeable Conans the Barbarian - actually are.
Allow me to quote: He was also a sex legend in the vampire world. Hollywood beautiful with the drive to rival a barnful of stallions. Females, vampire and human alike, would trample their own young to get at him. But when Rhage's beast came out everyone looked for shelter and took up praying.
BUT when you consider that Rhage is just one of the 6 brothers and there are actually 5 more Chippendales in line, waiting to be introduced in painful flowery language as well, let's just say I wasn't laughing anymore. Realization hit me; I actually paid 11 euro's for this trash, which was exactly what I paid for Let the Right One in as well.
And there you have it; there is no justice in this world. The problem with Dark Lover is that you might presume this is an entirely different book.
You may get lured in by this exciting sounding black dagger brotherhood of vampire warriors, erotically charged dark fantasy stuff and the fact that Dark Lover is a big fat Goodreads hype. However, what you see is not what you get; which is a silly written fluffy romance novel with large quantities of your typical fluffy romance novel sex think; celibate, big, bad and totally handsome vampire king falls head over heels in love with this super-gorgeous 25 year old chick and makes her orgasm a dozen of times for the FIRST TIME in her life.
I can imagine that Dark Lover can be fabulous escape-the-daily-grind material. So why don't you test yourself by reading the next part. If Wrath totally turns you on, I suggest you get your paws on this book asap! His hair was long and black, falling straight from a widow's peak.
Wraparound sunglasses hid eyes that no one had ever seen revealed. Shoulders were twice the size of most males. With a face that was both aristocratic and brutal, he looked like the king he was by birthright and the soldier he'd become by destiny. And that wave of menace rolling ahead of him was one hell of a calling card. As his cool hatred hit View all comments.

Any suggestions? Apr 11, Apr 13, Navessa rated it really liked it Shelves: Step Two: Create a Ragebeast Your male lead should be over six feet tall, have dark hair, tattoos and so much testosterone-inflated muscle that he has to walk through doors sideways.
The less he talks, the better. We just want someone who can bench press twice our body weight. If you really want to make us swoon, make him a prince too, or an uber-alpha, or a frigging king. That will fulfill the Princess Fantasy that half of us are infected with thanks to those assholes over at Disney. Step Three: Emotionally cripple the male.
Not until he sees your Mary Sue. When he finally lays eyes on her however, you can take that caveman frown and turn it upside down. Well, when she lays eyes on your beast of a male lead her va-jay-jay should turn into the river Nile. Step Four: The shmushing together of squishy bits Sex. Add it. Lots of it. On a bed, in the bathroom of a club, a stairwell, an alleyway, you get the drift.
Just know that the more you mix it up, the better. In fact, you can probably squeeze it in between your gymnastic-inspired sex scenes. Step Six: Climax, the literary kind Have the bad guy kidnap the heroine. Just before the villain can carry out these dastardly plans, have the hero save your Mary Sue. You want readers or not, lady? Step Seven: One plus of going light on the plotline like I suggested is that it makes it easy to wrap things up in a nice little bow.
I'm sure you're wondering "So why the four stars? Well, in my opinion, this author takes all the themes I've mentioned and does them well which makes for one entertaining and sexy read. Blog Facebook Twitter Instagram Pinterest Jul 20, Mel rated it liked it Recommended to Mel by: Amelia and Stav. I'm pleasantly surprised 3,5 stars. An interesting and unpredictable plot?
Not really. Romance and sex? At times the romance was almost sappy and the sex was good but I actually had expected it to be hotter it's quality people, not quantity! But despite all of the above: I understand the attraction of the books! I liked this book. I might even be on the verge of loving this book.
And I really liked Wrath. And I liked the rest of the boys. And I'm fascinated by Zsadist. And I want to read his book 3. So I'm buying book 2 about Rhage while I'm at it. And I heard book 4 is about Butch. And I want to read that too. Did I get addicted? But I think I might know why.
Cause doesn't every girl grow up fantasizing about a guy who is tough and cool but has a soft spot for you? Everybody's scared of him, except for you. Because he loves you. A lot. And no one else. Snapping somebody's neck while he's buying you flowers. View all 95 comments. Jul 29, Jessica Edwards rated it it was amazing Shelves: Before I continue with my review, I just want to say this. I fricking love this series!
I cannot express how much I love this series, this book was probably one of the reasons why I admire J. Ward so much. The series focuses on a society the "Black Dagger Brotherhood" of vampire warriors who live together and defend their race against de-souled humans called lessers. This series just had me wanting more and more. Literally, after finishing one book I couldn't wait to get my hands on the next, and Before I continue with my review, I just want to say this.
Literally, after finishing one book I couldn't wait to get my hands on the next, and I've never had that feeling before. Usually after reading a book, I take a break from the series, read something else then come back to it, but this series just had me hooked. I will admit this though, I'm not a huge fan of reading third person books, I'd rather read from the first person, but after reading Dark Lover, I got used to it after the first couple of chapters, and by Lover Awakened which is my favorite it didn't bother me at all.
The series as a whole is genius, like how did J. Ward do it? I had moments where I had to put the book down and gasp because of how the story was turning out. I'm embarrassed to say this because it takes a lot for me to swoon and get a reaction, but boy did I need to have a break from Lover at Last which is book I'd recommend this series to anybody, it has everything; Romance, action, vampires, and easy to like characters especially Zsadist.
You know what, I might read this series again. View all 13 comments. Feb 09, Kat Kennedy rated it it was ok Shelves: I originally wrote this review in a more innocent time. A time, if you can imagine, when I was a lot less cynical and a lot more likely to give books a break.
I complained about the content and nature of Wrath and Beth's relationship but let it slide because, hey it was just some light-hearted fun.
A couple of years ago I was at my mother's house when a large, terrify I originally wrote this review in a more innocent time. A couple of years ago I was at my mother's house when a large, terrifying spider began its battle charge toward me with murderous intent gleaming in its eyes witness accounts may vary In case you are unaware, I have a deep and unabidding terror of anything with more than six legs.
The spider racing toward me looked something like this: Nobody else at the scene of the event picks up details like I do Because she loves me presumably and to put a stop to my earsplitting girlie shrieks of "Kill it!
It is at this point that hundreds of small, though equally malevolent spider spawn emerged from the crushed remains of their mother, all equally intent on destroying me one little piece at a time.
I count this as the most traumatic moment of my life. I find it extremely ironic that it was a vacuum cleaner, the bane of my life, that rescued me that night while I jumped on the couch in a fit of apoplectic terror.
And it is with equal terror that I look upon the undead spawn that has filled the market since Dark Lover first emerged into the reading sphere. View all 51 comments. Shoulders were twice the size of most males'.
With a face that was both aristocratic and brutal, he looked like the king he was by birthright and the solider he'd become by destiny. We get the world building, the awesome characters, "Wrath was six feet, six inches of pure terror dressed in leather. We get the world building, the awesome characters, the terrible bad guys, and an amazing main couple! The story The Black Dagger Brotherhood is the only force between vampires and the evil lessers.
They are here to protect the vampire race, and lead them. Wrath is the only pure vampire left, he is their King, although he doesn't want to assume the role.
After one of his closest friends gets killed by the evil enemy, Wrath decides to honor his friend's request, and protect his daughter, Beth. Beth doesn't know who her parents are, or that she is part vampire, but after a scary huge guy enters her apartment, her life completely changes. She is drawn to him sexually how could she not be , and doesn't know what to believe when one of her cop friends accuses him of being a murderer.
Wrath wants Beth, even though he doesn't want to, but he needs to protect her, and when her change hits, she will need his blood to up her chances of survival. Will he be able to stay away from her? Will he be able to watch her mated with someone else without ripping his throat out? We'll see: DDD "He had her on the bed and under him in a flash of movement, and he pushed up her skirt and tore off her panties with vicious impatience. He didn't treat her blouse or bra any better.
There would be time to savor later. Now was all about raw sex. There is a huge dictionary with everything explained in detail, so it REALLY helps, even though all of it is explained in the book as well, but my suggestion is to read it BEFORE you get to the book, you will understand everything a lot better: They can eat food just like normal people, but need blood to survive and stay strong, and that blood has to be from a vampire. Well, at least for me: I love the way they talk, and swear, and act.
Love that: It's hard to keep up in the beginning, but with them having such unusual names, you'll have no problem remembering who's who: The BDB guys are uber-interesting, and we meet some characters from the vampire nobility, as well as some humans that will appear later: The bad guys, Mr. D The sex - It's pretty hot, with lots of sex scenes, even though i admit it gets hotter in the next books: He was like no man she'd ever come across before.
And her body knew it just as clearly as her mind did. She realises how extraordinary he is, and falls in love with the fierce vampire King: As a human, Beth is pretty weak physically, and has no sex urges, until she sees Wrath: D Oh man and what a way to discover them ahahahhahahah Those two can't get enough of each other, even though it isn't rational, but when it comes to mates and their connection D So, even though she is weak physically, as a characters she is fantastic, strong, willing to fight for Wrath and standing by him when he needed it.
Just loved her: And when she comforted Rhage, that was one of my favorite scenes in the book: His blood is the strongest, and that's why he was needed to help Beth through her transition. The attraction was a surprise, but one Wrath couldn't avoid. He wants Beth like no other before, and even though he fights it all the way, he knows he wants to mark her and make her his leelan.
He is King, but doesn't feel worthy of the title. He has a sad history, and the way his parents died But soon he will have to make a choice, because the Brotherhood will not survive without strong leadership, and the lessers are growing more and more powerful by the day. I just have to say, Wrath is HUGE and badass and pretty cold at the beginning, but we get to see him "melt" and show more and more of his emotions, and that ending with Beth, OMG!
He was a jerk a few times ahahhah but the poor guy's people skills are like ZERO ahahhahhah: DD Some of my fav scenes were with Wrath and Fritz: You're just too mean to find a grave and lie down. I'm not a total savage. Flipped the gold lighter shut. But I guess I'll settle for quantity until I find her. Life just sucks, doesn't it? May 01, Ren Puspita rated it really liked it Shelves: Thanks for all friends and people who have like this review and commenting.
Allright, this is the first book that start my love for BDB series, and when I know this book will be translated a year ago at February , I'm excited!! Waiting months later, no news Waiting next months later, still no news And then at July, the publisher said that their try so hard to translated this books!
Yeaaah, I'm waitiiiiiing Waiting, and waiting, they said this book wll be published at November, and then they decide to decline until December I'm still waiting And then they said again, they decline it until March this year!!
Alright, still I'm waiting, and then when the cover for translated version is coming up: I'm speechless and said: Ward know about this cover, she will go ballistic!! For the publisher in this case, GPU: Thanks to make our dream ruined! It doesn't matter if you said that the story is great, the story is good. Yes, I know about that!
But what with people that don't know about BDB? They always buy a book based it cover! Did you know what they're thinking when see this book at bookstore?
They will think this is a book with "WTF Cover"!! Ahh, dunno if I want to buy this translated version or not! There are people said that the model at the cover look alike Keanu Reeves!!
No way, at last Keanu is sooo much better!! Cut that crappy hair! I'll buy this book to know about the translated version, because my friends said this book lack of romance..
Then, it make me more curious. Which I'm not do it. Dec 18, Elle rated it it was ok Recommends it for: The seriously randy. Recommended to Elle by: The general GoodReads population. It's your fault.
All you Goodreaders. I was sucked in by the high ratings for this series. And the fact that I couldn't go anywhere on GR without this little red paperback popping up and waving at me.
Love me. I'm totally worth it' blah blaaahh. Where were the characters??? Where were they? WHY were they? I could not for the life of me identify who was who and why they were there. And WHY did they fall in love? Are you, J. Ward, trying to sell me this idea of love-at-first- It's your fault.
Ward, trying to sell me this idea of love-at-first-sight-but-first-I'm-going-to-shag-him-senseless-to-be-sure, again???? Don't misunderstand me Goodreaders. I'm not adverse to filth on paper. Sex is brilliant.
It's fun. I wish I had more of it. But surely there has to be more than just sex and filth to a good romance? I need suspense. I need the romance to develop.
Goddammit I need a heads-up before the clothes come off. I will not continue with this series. I will, however, keep this little red book on the bottom shelf should the need for quick filth arise in future. But I doubt it.

Beth is such a fabulous character - perfect queen material She had fangs. She leaned in, prodded them a little. Eating with those puppies was going to take some getting used to, she thought. On impulse, she brought up her hands, turned her fingers into claws. Some of the quotes I loved in this book: I mean, is it a dick thing with you all? Do you wear that leather to turn each other on? I am so invested in the series that I am unable to keep away from anything BDB First reviewed in Third or fourth time I have read this book I am so totally addicted to the Black Dagger Brotherhood Series And yes, I will read it again and again and again!!!!!!
I have become so obsessed with this series I don't remember even being so into a series like this Wrath making me pick his book up again!!!!!
I loved it even more than the previous times Wrath and Beth are just an amazing couple I hope that the new book coming out in will have more about them I wanted to finish it and go onto the next one. I was totally hooked.
Set in modern day Caldwell, New York a war is going on between vampires and Wrath, the last purebred vampire is king and leader of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, a group of vampire warriors fighting the evil Lessing Society, which is bent on eradicating vampires. He has been asked by his closest friend, Darius who is murdered by the lesser, to look after Beth, his half human daughter. Beth has never had a serious relationship and longs for some excitement in her life.
She becomes totally enthralled with Wrath. He seduces her on their first meeting and enters a sensual world that she never could imagine existed. The sex scenes are so erotic and sensual and sizzling HOT…. We meet the vampire warriors…. I loved the way the characters were named…. You are taken on an exhilarating ride filled with fast action, sensual romance and a vampire world you have never seen before. You lose yourself in this dark and exciting world and you want to discover everything in it.
To help understand some of the terms and dialogue in the story, a glossary helps you the descriptions. I recommend the books are read in the series reading order. View all 28 comments. Picture of Wrath Wanting to get an image of Wrath in those leather pants, I visited photo bucket and this is what I found.
While there are no leather pants, I thought he was perfect: This is my first "ad Picture of Wrath This is my first "adult" vampire read. I've stayed away from this genre thinking how on earth could I like a hero who drinks blood?!
The thought has never been appealing and actually was kind of a turn off. But with the push from my GR friends I caved and took the plunge. All I can say is WOW, I have really been missing out! I loved this book!
He was such a loner, guarding his feelings and deeper emotions.
But when he fell, he fell hard! I particularly enjoyed his first feelings of jealousy…. For the price of admission, you get a splitting headache, a nearly irresistible urge to commit murder, and an inferiority complex….
My ultimate goal is to become his leelan! This man is one of the sexiest I've read! I love alpha warrior heroes and this book is filled with sexy, male testosterone. Some were a little scary; some were a lot scary!
But they all were fascinating! I also met the enemy, the lessers, and hope their entire race will be obliterated! It was an intense; erotic, emotional read with just enough laugh out loud moments to make this near perfect. I am intrigued by this band of brothers and can't wait for more! The Black Dagger Brotherhood is one of my top ten favorites series of- all- times. There is just something about this series that made me fall in love from book one. No matter how many times I read these stories they never get old.
Dark Lover does an amazing job of laying out this new and exciting paranormal world. The Black Dagger Brotherhood world is a kick ass world filled with kick ass dark heroes that steal your heart and melt your panties. Each brother is sexy, unique, intriguing, and totally amazing in their own way. Dark Lover is Wrath's book. With his failing eye sight, dark past, and his insecurities about being able to lead his people Wrath has refused to ascend the throne.
He instead serves his people by being a warrior, and killing lessers, until Beth. Wrath was surly, closed off, and at times an asshole. But Wrath was a multifaceted character. He was also loyal, sweet, caring, and sexy as hell. Beth Randall Thought she was a normal boring everyday human, til a sexy tall dark "man" shows up, rocks her world and tells her she is half vampire.
Beth was sweet, understanding, supportive, but she was also sassy, independent, and didn't let people walk on her. Beth had a lot thrown at her but she handled it well. Beth was a great mate for Wrath. You're just going to walk up to her and say, 'Hey, I know you've never seen me before, but I'm your dad.
Oh, and guess what? You've won the evolutionary lottery: You're a vampire. Let's go to Disneyland! And I don't know how to keep you safe enough. I don't know how the hell to - " "We'll figure it out," she said. The bigger and badder they are the harder they fall and Wrath fell hard and fast for Beth. The Black Dagger Brotherhood series promises tons of thrills and chills. Ward takes you deep into her intense, dark world of vampires and holds you captive until her last breathless word Sure to satisfy lovers of vampire romance everywhere.

Pure, raw, animal chemistry. Whatever he had, she wanted. His voice was low, a deep rumble in his solid chest. He had the sliver of an accent, but she couldn't place it.
