Of course, I would recommmend this to a friend. The BDB story is so much more than just one book in the series. While, yes, the primary focus of LAL is Blaylock and Quhinn, there is so much more going on than just a gay male romance novel. Yes, it is a gay male romance novel. If you are not comfortable with M/M love stories, than this likely isn't for you.
What JR Ward excels at in this story, is character! She has an undeniable talent for making her characters sympathetic and believable. The story weaves multiple points of view and characters from previous stories.
If you read and love the BDB stories, there is much in this book that moves the story along. minor characters in this book are developed and we see more of the Shadows and other vampires outside the Brotherhood. The BDB world is definitely expanding to create more content for future novels. (yippee)
Jim Frangione IS the voice of the Black Dagger Brotherhood. I cannot even read the printed book without hearing his voice in my head as Rhage or Butch. He does an excellent job of differentiating the characters.
LAL Will have a follow-up book DUH! The secondary storylines (Assail and Tres) leave off in the middle! The next book will likely be about one of these males.
LAL is a love story, and if you are a reader of the BDB series, then you know that JR Ward writes like a man, especially when writing from a male point of view. You also know that her male characters are dominant, instinctual, animalistic, aggressive, physical, fierce fighters. You also know that her characters express their emotions physically and her writing is VERY descriptive in intimate situations. She does not back away from Blay and Quhinn because they are male. She gives as much attention to our boys as she did to any of the previous couples.
