D JM and XhexJM and Xhex are naturally included in this installment since Xhex and Murhder were once lovers Surprisingly JM and Murhder get along fantastic which I found refreshing JM Xhex and Murhder all have their own interpersonal relationship dynamics with one another which I very much njoyed JM is having some troubles but you ll need to read about thoseI ll just say it s scary and very troublesome Between his troubles and his relationship with both Xhex and Murhder I have a whole new appreciation for JM I just have have to say I loved the scenes between JM Murhder Throe and his ShadowsThey re back and EVIL all I can say is yikes I can t say too much without giving anything away you need to read it LassiterOur favorite fallen Angel is once again in the thick of things As always he brings color to Fitness for Geeks: Real Science, Great Nutrition, and Good Health everything he s involved in Always a joy Final thoughts I lovedverything for the most part I was again nthralled and throughly njoyed this installment My only disappointment was that we didn t get any updates on Jo Early or Trez Therese Insanely good I have to admit it took me a few days to get into this story I have only read one other of the books in this series and I was having a bit of difficulty settling into the story and getting to know Cause Of Fear everyone But that soon disappeared and the magical storyteller finally got her way with meThis book floods the mind with so manymotions Tension anticipation happiness sorrow Your heart will feel like a roller coaster You will come out feeling a bit beat up but with a smile on your face But you truly will understand what the Brotherhood really means when you read this storyFor those that love a great paranormal read Ward takes us on a journey like none other Intensely romantic and straight up flipping steamy violent and gruesome heartbreaking and deep Her addictive writing tells a story like none other She has uickly become a favorite of mineIf you are looking for a novel that contains so much motion and imagery you will gasp cry and smile within the same chapter you have to check out this book She is just flat out an amazing storyteller you will not forgetcopy received for review considerationfull review Grief is a cold stream you acclimate to Friends we are seventeen books into this series there is barely anything I can possibly say that isn t spoilery But I will say that I have been reading this series since I was very young and I look forward to a new BDB book very single year and the Savior was no The Game of Love exception The basic premise of this series is that in the Black Dagger Brotherhood we follow a bunch of powerful vampires that are in anlite group that protects humans vampires angels and a bunch of other paranormal ntities and they all live in this big mansion and they all are one big family that s just saving the world And because we are seventeen books in ach book focuses on a new member or soon to be or maybe one day possibly becoming a member while an older member who has already had their own book has a side storyline going on as well This book focuses primarily on Murhder who has been talked about and hinted at for so very many books leading up to this one He was kicked out of the BDB back in the day and in this book we get to see why and what happened after he left Sadly it was very much based on miscommunication and I didn t love it very much The other star of this book is Sarah who I actually really did like I won t lie the instalove was real in this romance but I still just really njoyed it for some reason Plus Sarah who is a scientist trying to get to the bottom of a mysterious coverup that happened many years ago was fascinating and I loved the mystery and watching it unfold And the side storyline going on is about John Matthew who is sadly my least favorite brother And Xhex who is Jon Matthews partner is also one of my least favorite characters and I hated how she didn t speak up in this book and let someone lse take the blame for something Like it felt really bad and it really nsured their place as my least favorite couple in this world Also the bandage that was placed on the situation for the asiest fix The Lady in Pink ever Felt horrible Overall I just feel like this wasn t as strong of a book Like almost to the point that you could completely take out this book and it wouldn t impact the storyline whatsoever which is never a good feeling I am veryxcited for book Eyes eighteen but this one wasn tven close to being one of my favorite books Also that romantic haircut Lord please no never I know this review is really vague and I m sorry for that but if you re looking for a PNR romance filled with alpha vampires a lot of romance and a lot of sex I totally think you should give this series a try Also I am hoping we get of my favorite fallen angel in the next

the Black Dagger Brotherhood series and it s one I ve been waiting on for uite a while The Math Basics 6 elusive male who used to be a brother Murhder As always there are other characters who have a huge part in the book and in this book the secondary storyline was that of John Matthew and Xhex which makes sense since Murhder and Xhex have history Murhder is the only member of the BDB tover be Voyage to the Underworld (Star Wars Missions, expelled The rumor is he went insane but the you get to know Murhder and what happened him the you realize he s not as crazy asxpected Jeez you go rogue once and slaughter a bunch of humans after they torture your girlfriend and suddenly you re a leaper Murhder is compelled to come back to Caldwell to save someone And he needs the help of the brotherhood to do it Through this rescue mission he meets Dr Sarah Watkins Sarah has One of my favorite black dagger brotherhood books of all time Let me start by saying that I know this book has been reviewed many times and theirs mixed reviews but for me it was The First Ghost everything I wanted murhder s book to be My review will be my thoughts and feelings only since most reviews already told the plot I have wanted murhder to get his redemption and to be brought back into fold he was one of my faves and what he did so many years ago was nothing that any of the warriors would have done and what the sympath s did to him was awful This book as with all of ward s books is a rollercoaster ride and always leaves me mentally andmotionally wiped out But this one in particular had me crying on and off alotso many motional moment s and with characters that always feel like family to me I love the snark and humor and the storytelling is f king stellar And ven after all these years and so many books later Simple Numbers, Straight Talk, Big Profits!: 4 Keys to Unlock Your Business Potential every time one of these men of worth get their happynding I cry like a little b tch And murhders story was no xception And very time they do the induction ceremony it still sends chills though me and I can feel the joy and love and unity of these brothersit s deep I can t get Humanism enough of this series What a beautiful f king mind ward has to have so many stories in her head and the ability to bring them to life Now that s a thing of beauty Until next time luv s 2 unexciting could have been better stars Ok first of all I didn t hate this I was just overall bored with itSecond I actually liked the couple I was one of the few who had reservations about Murhder getting his book right now honestly he could have never gotten a story and I would have been fine with it shrugs But Ward did a pretty decent job in addressing all the sordid historyloose strings with this character and fleshing him out Inded up liking him He was a nice combination of fierce loyal brave selfless self deprecating funny and vulnerable His vulnerability is what honestly saved him from being repetitive and a cliche Brother Sarah Watkins made a nice heroine I really Smokin' Hot enjoyed her too Herntrance into Murhder s world Fantastic Edge of my seat Now what didn t work The pacing It was absolute shit It dragged in parts it didn t need to and went super fast in places that needed to be better paced out Prime Placing Memory example the hero and heroine s relationship for starters The warp speed romantic arcs in short time frames for storylines that have no business being uick has become a thing for Ward recently And I honestly don t understand why I ve been calling this out for some time now and I m tired of repeating myself Stop having your characters fall in love in 2 days time spanIt s nonsense Especially in a complex world like the BDB universe where there are so many outside factors that play into it Especially with a pairing where one half is human That s the biggest issue for me here Sarah being so uick to adapting to the Vampire world and wanting to stay all because she has a lonely life was a little too uick and convenient for me The fact that she had zero hesitation in wanting to walk away from her human life to be with Murhder after knowing him for a span of 24 hours is just ludicrous It felt like I was reading a novella rather than a full length story and that s not good Let your characters fall in love gradually please Ward no longer believes in slow burn or something I shouldn tven have to be saying this I get it s PR but I d like a little realism when it comes to dealing with 2 conflicting worldsspecies m kay It s not so asy to adapt and adjust like Sarah did in here all because she was so fascinated by them And I m not saying I didn t like the fact that we didn

"freak out like "out like But what would have helped and made the love story believable and have better footing is if we saw her spending time with Murhder before saying ILY A slow gradual progression would have been nice Give me at least 2 3 freaking weeks I don t get why Ward is getting so stingy with the timeline And you want the BDB world to catch up with the Fallen Angel timeline The rate we are going we will have to wait for another 20 books for Adrian and Eddie to show up Just saying Or maybe I have it backwards Whatever I just know that for a full length 400 page book these stories have no business or reason to only cover 2 4 days These aren t novellas so what s the hurry Especially when you are dealing with full redemption arcs coughTheChosencough and big reveals It just stunts and undermines the HEA and character growth IMO And it sucks because Murhder and Sarah actually had chemistry But Ward mucked it up for a rushed convoluted messy resolution And don t ven get me started on that ridiculous hand fasted last minute immortality loophole for Sarah at the very nd view spoiler A magic diamond Really THAT S IT hide spoiler 5 I can t get nough of the BDB world starsSoooo Murhder Who is this guyBasically when Sarah the clueless sad lonely betrayed human girl met Murhder she was obviously Wanton Nights enthralled and impressed and she had or less three uestions for him1 Who are you We came to rescue the boy the man said in a hoarse voice He s been here too long Are you with the government We re private actors But we ll keep him safe I swear to it No harm isver going to fall upon him if I m around It was my vow to his mahmen 2 What are you Vampire Now he looked at her
