    "Not a Brotherhood book"

    I was disappointed in this book. I love all the Black Daggar Brotherhood books...and wanted to love this new series too...but it falls far too short. I had to force myself to finish this one. The ending is unfufilling, leaving out details of the main battle for us to wonder about. The main character is a loaner whos only relationship is with a dog. Perhaps it's just that I have been spoiled by the sexy, funny, brave and wise-cracking brothers.

    Story
    "Definitely not the Black Dagger Brotherhood!"

    I just didn't care for this book. I love JR Ward's Black Daggar Brotherhood books and assumed this would be similar (in a good way). Everything I love about that series is missing in this one - tough guys and messed-up relationships. I didn't realize that was what I liked about it until it was missing.

    I had to force myself to get past the first few chapters. They were really confusing and lacked any kind of story line. She introduced so many characters and random background information that it became annoying to try to follow. By the time she returned to a character I had already forgotten what their situation was. It was even difficult to figure out who the main characters were.

    The books are less about the development of a relationship between two people and more about Jim and his role in the battle over good and evil. Ward needs to choose a story line and focus on it. I personally prefer the focus on relationships and having the other aspects of the book to help develop that story line.

    I doubt I will be getting another book from this series, but I might give it one more shot. It is possible that this book was so awkward because Ward was trying to establish the new series.

    "Not a fan"

    I was thouroughly disappointed with this book. The characters were cliched, the writing was mediocre at best, and the plot was predictable. I won't be reading any more in the series.

    "Great Fun!"

    This is totally different from the BDB. It's lighter. I enjoyed it very much. I will be getting the sequel.

    I've been an Audible addict since 2001. I like fantasy, intrigue, detective mysteries, love stories (not soft porn), and books with a Christian theme (and yes I know some don't think that fits with my love of fantasy). Since my husband retired I have less time to listen, but I always get through at least 4 books a month! I love to stock up during sales!!!

    "could be great but..."

    This could be a great series but the vulgar language gets in the way. I am not a prude - I have no problem with language that adds to the story line or forms a particular character's identity. But this author uses vulgar language for no reason - it adds nothing and simply makes the book difficult to listen to. Sad if you ask me because like I said this could be an great series.

    "Just bad"

    How many cliches can you fit in one book? Add some laughable sex scenes and this is the result. The narrator did the best he could with what he had to work with.

    "Not for me"

    Can I just say - I LOVE J.R. Ward??!! Unfortunately Covet was not for me. Give me more of the Black Dagger Brotherhood anyday but this 7 deadly sins Caldwell spin-off left me feeling like I needed to go to confession or risk the fate of the world!

    "Unexpected"

    Really enjoyable, I didn't know what to expect but was very pleased. J.R. Ward is such a good writer.
