Okay, so I had to give this book almost 100%. The narrator is really good however there are times when the characters sound the same. Not a biggee though. However, this is my opinion and mine only. Now I'm not talking about this author being a classical author but what I want to stress is that this is the only author I've heard in this genre that speaks in today's venacular. Imagine using the word "conversate?" I don't think this word is correct. Whether it is or not, it's used perfectly. I love dialogue and the slang abbreviations. The narrator is excellent and the story adventurous and yes, steamy. I usually don't like a lot of "steamy" but honestly, she does it well. And sometimes I just want to get to the adventure so when I do I fast forward. This book is one of my favorites. An earlier book from this series I didn't like and absolutely wrote about it. Now, if you are uncomfortable with a man loving another man (not too deep, she does it well) don't listen.
No judgement, just letting you know.
Listen to the "Fallen Angels" series from this same author. She actually brought one character from this book into Fallen Angels.
As a matter of fact, depending on your listening mood, it's even better than this one because it's smoother, not as intense. HOWEVER, if you're in the mood for intensity, listen to the BD series. There's a few like the one about " If you want a steady adventure go to the Fallen Angels.
I didn't like "Lover Revealed" and wrote about it. This one however is a romantic, adventurous, manly-man vampire book. Loved it.
This is one of my favorite series. I love the story lines. I love how you get to know each person in the book. I just kept coming back for every book. I want more !
I loved this book the most out of the entire series!
I absoultely love JR WARD!
First audiobook, first review...and first disappointment. Maybe it'll get better, the more books I listen to or maybe, after having read all of Wards' books, I have a "voice" I've put to these books that is not being lived up to. Whatever the issue is, this reader was distracting throughout due to the speed of his reading , how bad he sounded speaking the slang that's prevelent throughout and how weird it was, every single time, he altered his voice to read the female parts. The story was odd too - there was so little of the book that dealt with Payne and Manuel I felt cheated at the end. I will read any and everything J.R. Ward puts out, but this won't go into the reread, er, relisten category though.
I have so enjoyed this series I have had to start it all over again since this is the last book so far in this series. Lover Unleashed is yet another book that keeps you reading/listening non-stop. This series will take you away into another realm, I highly recommend all of the BDB books.
Personally I liked the book. Yes, there was a lot about the Vishious, Jane & Butch trio but I didn't mind. I like when the other Brothers are involved in each others books. Payne and Manny relationship could have been developed more but as a whole I like that the book didn't just focus on one couple. I am not jumping the JR Ward ship. I can't wait to see where she takes the next book with Payne & Manny, Quinn and the new characters.
I am not a BDB finatic, but I really, really enjoy the characters and the books. (When I read the boods, I am fascinated by the characters. When I am not reading one of the books, I move on with my life.) Have you ever read a book where you feel kind of depressed because it ended before you were ready to let go of the new "friends" you made? JR Ward makes their personalities and life real, not just stories about people. Well, as real as Vampires and Lessers can be. Unfortunately this book is a wattered down version of those characters. I feel like "Lover Unleashed" killed my friends. They are just ghostly images of the real thing. I am currious to understand the conditions the author was under to turn out a book so lacking compared to her other books. JR Ward! I demand a re-write! Like kids playing kick ball in the street, I am calling a "DO OVER!". Until then, I will look forward to the newest book in the "Fallen Angel" series. I do have other friends, you know...
This books should have been called Vicious part 2, because that is pretty much what it was. This was all about V and Jane it seemed like Manny and Payne took a backseat in this story and to be perfectly honest, reading his book was about as exciting as reading Phurry's book.
I have to be honest, I was even more upset with the way it seems J.R. is leading us with the B & Q storyline. I'm not liking the way this is going and I think that it's going to be a very big disappointment. I'm worried about the next book now. My advice....skip paying for this book. Borrow it from a friend. Check it out from the library. Just don't waste your money.
I have waited on pins and needles for another book in this series to finally come out. Once again, I wasn't disappointed. It was totally absorbing from beginning to end, it was hot, made me hot, and kept me in a fantasy world where the desire to have a Black Daggar Brother for your very own becomes a reality you can only imagine after reading just one book in the series. Every book in the series can stand on it's own, but watch out, they are addicting and leave you aching for more! I totally love the Black Dagger Brotherhood series...can't wait for the next one! The narrator is excellent...100% love him...he is the best of the best for this series and pulls you into this fantasy world where you will not be able to sleep from thinking and wishing you were actually there! This series is my absolute all time favorite! And that says a lot!
