Glad I took the plunge.5
Having been a fan of vampire novels since, well, forever, I have seen JR Ward’s work in bookstores and never picked up one of her books. Well, out came this box set and I thought, why not? Needless to say, I am so glad I took the plunge! The reading is intese and very sexy. I liked the action and pacing of the novels. This took me some time to get through, but I am now considering reading some of the novels again and that’s saying something! All I can say is that if you have not read JR Ward before, you might like it. I know I did. Also liked, too, Dead Sexy Vampire Erotica: Two Dark and Thirsty Stories.

A page turner, with some flaws4
I read the first four of the series of six so far. These books are truly page turners. You get sucked into the universe Ward created and care for most of the characters. The love interests are developed well (with occasional cheesy lines but you go along with it) and you can’t get enough of them.

On the flipside, here is why I did not give five stars:The “street” slang the brothers are speaking really irritated me, as it didn’t sound genuine at all. I live in New York and hear a fair amount of “street” slang, and it does not sound like this. (Questions ending with “…, true?” Who talks like that?) Also, I am not sure if Ms Ward knows what blunts are. Usually they are not made with rolling paper. True connosseurs of rap music, even gangsta rap, would probably find something better to listen to than D-12… Ms Ward needs a “street editor” if she wants to continue this, but also, why do centuries old vampires act like that anyway? I am not usually a romance genre reader, and it also bothered me a bit that every book seemed to follow a similar pattern in terms of the main love interests, and have a happy happy ending where most loose ends were tied.

Having said all this, I read four books in 6 days, so clearly I liked it.

Black Dagger Brotherhood Series5
This series of the Black Dagger Brotherhood by J. R. Ward is the best I have read. It is absolutely an adult read, but is acceptable for all adults. My daughter who is 39, my friends who range in age from 35 to 65, and myself all have read and reread this series. I am 70. I am totally in love with the great males in this series, and also their females. I cry with them and laugh with them. I have already pre-ordered the next book from Amazon, which should be about John Matthew. Try these books. You will be hooked, and if you order it from Amazon, you get a great price.
