My Musings: My rating: 5 of 5 stars
It’s been almost a year since I discovered the Black Dagger Brotherhood and while it’s been awhile since since I read these books, this is still hands down my favorite series…ever.
I am totally in love with the Brothers. Most ALL of the Brothers. But Vishous…ohhhh Vishous…how I love you!!! Hands down my favorite character…ever.
I was totally shocked at how much I loved this book. At first I wasn’t sure I was going to like this or where the author was going to go with V’s bisexual tendencies towards Butch. At the time I hesitated, but being a brother I had to give him more time. When he was completely kinked out in leather with some anonymous leather clad woman chained down to a table, I thought oh boy, not sure I like where this is going. But it was still too early to write him off as not my thing. I am so glad I gave him a third chance.
This one played out in a way I never saw coming. I absolutely loved watching V, dominant, arrogant, beautiful, damaged, definitely intense vampire fall for Jane. I loved the way he just saw her, while barely conscious, and just takes her. She so didn’t seem like his type!
And Jane, I really liked Jane. I rarely like the female in romance novels; they are always irritating and whinny. Especially when they find themselves in situations like these. Jane was great. She was a strong, independent, doctor who handled whatever situation as best she could…without whining.
I just loved watching the relationship develop between these two. The sexual tension between these two is terrific. When they explode, they definitely explode. Oh what an explosion! Totally hot. I loved it. This is one of the only books that actually made me oooh and ahhh, laugh and cry…out loud! I actually yelled out loud with tears at one point. I’m just not that animated of a person. It was so embarrassing!
I highly recommend all the Black Dagger Brotherhood books to everyone. But V’s book if a definite must read. With John Mathew’s book coming out, it might just be time to read them again.
