Dark Lover (Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book #1) by J.R. Ward

Dark Lover (Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book #1) 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…

My review

rating: 5 of 5 stars
I knew when I picked this book up that it was going to be a good read as I had seen all of the wonderful reviews. But WOW! I loved this book.

There was an immediate connection to the characters. So much so that I was heartbroken over a death in the first couple of chapters. I was drawn into the Brotherhood and involved in the storyline right away.

I love the interaction between the brothers. The author did a fantastic job developing the individual characters as well as the relationship between them.

There were times when I chuckled, laughed out loud and even got teary eyed reading this book.

I am thrilled to say that I have #2 sitting right here and will be devouring it now.

View all my reviews.
