So predictable and cheezy
no, his voice grates on me
they are all lame
No comparison to any of Anne Rice's or Charlaine Harris' books
Absolutely not! I have read multiple authors of this genre and thoroughly enjoyed them. This book grinded on my very being.
Yes, while I was not impressed with the reading, I thought it was more the awful writing that made this a poor book.
None were impressive
This was so poor, it is hard to describe it. Men...immortal, fantasy, just the genre or however you want to classify and lure a person to read this dribble...DO NOT go around calling each other "my brothah"; at least not in this world. I find it stupid and insulting. If I save just one person from reading this book, I have accomplished much!!
Even though he isn't the main character in this book. I still really like Butch. He's a guy I'd love to go out for a beer (or a scotch) and hang out with. No nonsense, and funny.
With his gravelly voice, Jim Frangione is probably the best suited to read these books. He manages the female voices without sounding squeaky or fake.
Yes. In fact, I downloaded it as soon as I'd finished Dark Lover
J. R. Ward's love scenes between Bella and Rhage are believable for a couple who care deeply about one another. No gratuitous panting and fabric rending.
love to read. when i cant read, i listen to them instead:)
love the story but they should have picked another person to narrate. there is too much slang and the guy idk he just wasnt a good fit for this read.
of course. loved the story
This booked touched me. The relationship between Mary and Rage is complicated one but at the end they make it all worth it.
I cried so much in many parts of this book. The mixture of tenderness and hot hot love makes this book a must.
I love how the author is developing, in each book, the characters that are part of the brotherhood. I can't wait to read the next one.
Before I decided to review the Lover Eternal (Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 2) audiobook I look up the review standings .. on Amazon there are a total of there are 550 reviews in which 393 give this book 5 stars. I was told the books got better well I am sorry the best I can do is ½ star - now there will be 10 people ranking this books with only 1 star.
This is the 2nd installment of the BDB Series and my last, as with the 1st book I found that it too had a terrible plot, the writing was awful - I think a 13 year old wrote the book - REALLY "juicy curses"? It was riddled with lame and silly dialog; seriously what adult male says "You feelin' me, brother?" or "you gotta hook me". Or what guys comments about another guys outfit; "that brother looks good in his Armani suit" - REALLY??
As for the audio part that too was awful.
I do have a couple of positive comments - I purchased this book on sale and the best part of the audio version - the long dead space between the chapters.
Anyone that had any character to his voice. Anyone that could use the punctuation while reading. Jim Frangione is monotone!! and he rambles. It's very frustrating listening to this guy talk.
Find someone that knows how to read.
Believer in what you can't see
Everything, I love the whole plot between Rhage and Mary. I love how Rhage learns to care about Mary and sacrifice all he could so that she would live even if it would mean she would never know him again. LOVE THIS STORY. MY FAVORITE IN THE SERIES.
The only one that I like as much as this one was Lover Unbound. I find the devotion between the brothers and their human lovers both wonderful and heart wrenching. Both brothers had to find that woman that soften their hearts and allowed them to think about someone else.
The power and the strength behind the brothers lives. You hear the mannerisms and the attitudes of each of the characters. Frangione brings life to the stories, but the stories can stand alone too.
Yes, but because J.R.Ward has so much to say it is impossible to hear the audiobook in one session.
This was the second Vampire series that I feel in love with, right after the Dark Series written by Christine Feehan. This series is on the serious side. It has its humor, but some of the storylines can get pretty deep and disturbing.
This second installment of the Black Dagger Brotherhood was richer and even more interesting then the first book. In fact I liked it better than the first. Rhage is cursed by the Scribe Virgin to turn into a dragon/godzilla like creature when he gets to worked up. It was intended to teach him to control himself. The beast made things really interesting.
The most memorable moment for me in the book was Mary running to Rhage and finally admitting she wasn't okay instead of trying to keep up the fascade that she was in control and handling everything on her own.
The narrator mispronounced quite a few words. The one that irritates me most is rifled. I do like his voice however because it is easy to listen to so much can be forgiven.
The most moving part of the book was when Rhage kissed and touched all the scars from the various procedures Mary had because of her previous bout of luekemia. She is one battlescarred and tough lady to have endured what she has.
This is one of my favorite books in the series. I have read all of them in paperback and now I'm going back and buying my favorites in audible so I can listen to them on my smart phone while I walk.

Overall I'd say I enjoyed this story. It's not the best I've experienced but certainly far from the worst. This is one of those times when I think if I had actually read the story, I would have enjoyed it more with the voices my own imagination would have come up with. I do have to say that the reader (Luke Daniels) is acceptable for the most part but his voice for one of the angels was distracting for me (he sounded like Jack Nicholson, really...Jack Nicholson an angel?) and he often spoke far too slowly for many of the male characters. Apart from that though he was fairly believable. I'm definitely interested in looking up some of the subsequent stories in this series.
