    "I love this book"
    Where does Lover Eternal, The Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 2 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is the best thus far for me. I love the first book but I do not really care for the book #5. I love this because it shows the vunerable side of Rhage and how he tries his best to shield Mary. It shows her strengths as well as her ability to be docile to her man's need. I love the romantic scenes when he tries to hold back only to give in to his need desire and want.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Rhage is my favorite character because he is strong, bold, funny, romantic and loveable. But all in all he's a warrior willing to protect what's his.


    Have you listened to any of Jim Frangione’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I really am growing to love Jim Frangione. At first I did not like him but now I am getting to love his style and his cadence/voice.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Rhage wanted Mary and pushed himself away b/c he didnt want to hurt her. And denied himself pleasure!!


    Any additional comments?

    I love this book I am hoping the series doesnt let me down.

    When I clean, drive or exercise I listen to romance. The steamier the better but it must have a great story as well!

    "I love this book!"

    This is one of my favorite books in the series! I have been waiting for it to be released in Audio format and was not disapointed! Rhage is the type of guy that most women would love to be with. This story has action and romance. If you enjoy fiction with action and steamy romance this book is for you! JR Ward doesn't disapoint!

    "JR Ward Writer of Erotic Horror Fantasy"

    I see that people either love this series or they hate it. I'm thinking that they are only reading one book at a time, and not in order. If you Don't like Erotic Horror Fantasy. DON'T READ JR Ward books. I have read the first two of the "Fallen Angel" series and I'm hooked. That was the reason I started BDB. I am enjoying the BDB, but find the Fallen Angel series more to my liking so far. I'm up to book 4 in BDB and each one gives a different perspective of each member of the "Brotherhood". Erotic Horror Fantasy is not for everyone, and that is why I think it is important that you know what you are purchasing. I am enjoying the series so far and will continue. I am very much looking forward to the next "Fallen Angel"

    Was Lover Eternal, The Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 2 worth the listening time?

    of course. loved the story

    "Another home run!"

    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.

    Story
    "Love is the strangest thing"
    What did you love best about Lover Eternal, The Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 2?

    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.


    What other book might you compare Lover Eternal, The Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 2 to and why?

    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.


    What does Jim Frangione bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    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.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but because J.R.Ward has so much to say it is impossible to hear the audiobook in one session.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "A Good Read"
    What made the experience of listening to Lover Eternal, The Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 2 the most enjoyable?

    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.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Lover Eternal, The Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 2?

    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.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    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.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "A "campy" diversion!"

    This story starts off fine, but becomes lazy and disjointed halfway through. I began to feel like I was listening to the writer's notes strung together to haphazardly extend the story. It recovers by the end so all in all, this one was just, OK.
    The series is fun and I highly recommend it for a "campy" diversion that can be listened to in mixed company. I like listening to the BDB Series because in a lot of ways they remind me of the "campiness" of the once popular 60's television show "Batman". (So "silly" but I just couldn't stop watching it). Regarding the narration: Jim Frangione's dry dispassionate reading has a way of "growing" on you. He is not as distracting as some narrators of other books, but he certainly does not inspire the raw "sexiness" I think the stories hold. Listening to him is like listening to the character Jack from the once popular detective show "Dragnet." I think if you can get this one on sale, it is worth the listen.

    I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.

    Story
    "Brotherhood MMMMmmmmmm"
    Would you listen to Lover Eternal, The Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 2 again? Why?

    Yes, I have read it, listened to it and will listen to this series again, and again, and again!! It may be a year or two before I revisit all these lovely men in the brotherhood, but I always keep coming back to them. This had been a favorite series of mine for years.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If I had enough free time I would listen to the whole series without stopping.


    Any additional comments?

    This series is a fantasy vampire based series with violence, sexual content, bad language, bad behaviour, all these lovely men (vampires) with all types of problems, that happen to find that ONE special woman that changes everything. That makes them want to be the best, LOVE only her, and face whatever may come. It's not for everyone, but thats why there are so many books out there. In my opinion this is a great series and if you like this sort of thing I described, then I think you'll like this book

    "BEAUTY FALLS FOR THE BEAST"

    At the beginning, I honestly wasn't sure about this book, but it sure made up for in the end!! I really felt for Mary and not just because of her health complications. She is such a down to earth person who gives so much of herself and never seems to get anything in return...until she meets Rhage that is. Rhage on the other hand, is very tired of the habits he has had take up to keep his "inner beast", literally, at bay. However when he hears her voice for the first time, he and his beast seem to fall for her instantly, and only she seems to be able to tame him.

    I really loved Rhage and Mary's defying the odds story even more than the last I think, despite some cheesy moments, which I feel the narration played a big part in. The ending really got to me and through me for a loop, literally bringing tears to my eyes from the sacrifice that Rhage gives. It is very unexpected, but such a great ending!! I also loved how this set up the next book very well! The only way this book could have been better would be the narration (good not great), but despite that...so worth the credit! Next book!!
