This was a frustrating read for me. I loved the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. So when this came out I was so excited. Don't get me wrong, overall I liked the book. It wasn't the best ever, but it was ok.
The part that frustrated me about this book is that I got so involved in the new hires and the whole Craeg and Paradise story, that anytime it got interrupted I was so annoyed!
***Don't be fooled, this book is only half about their love story. The other half is about Butch and Marissa. I thought we already heard their story, why was SO much of this book about them?! I think J.R. Ward could had made this book a little bit more focused on the new love birds, instead of the problems of the old birds.

If you liked the Black Dagger series, you'll want to read this so go ahead and add it to your cart =)

Growing up, orphaned Josephine didn't know who or what she was - just that she was "bad", an outcast with strange powers. Protecting her baby brother, Thaddeus, became her entire life. The day he was taken away began Jo's transition from angry girl...to would-be superhero...to enchanting villain.

The first Chapter in this book isn't that great, so please get through it and after its over and it moves on to Ruin's part of the book, its smooth sailing from then on out.
I think he is a much more likable character, so starting off with Josephine and her bad attitude is a serious turn off to be hit with it right out of the gate.
Like I said, get through that boring first bit and you'll love the rest =)

I LOVED this book. One of the best in the Immortals after Dark series. I have criticized some of the other books in the series, so don't think I'm just blowing smoke. I do love the series and the author so I've heard them all. But seriously, this one is one of the best.

I do love the narrator, but his "female" voice...drives me insane. Other than that he is fantastic.

To everyone who knows him, West Ashby has always been that guy: the cocky, popular, way-too-handsome-for-his-own-good football god who led Lawton High to the state championships. But while West may be big man on campus on the outside, on the inside he's battling the grief that comes with watching his father slowly die of cancer.

I love all the others and this one has started off amazing, as usual! =)

You'll fall in love wih Maggie and West, just like I did. Nothing more to say, just add it to your cart and get started.

I cannot wait to hear all the other boys stories. Gunnar's will obviously be hilarious. Nash's will be full of hope. And Brady's will be some epic love story that will melt us all.

I've listened to every book in this series. I love and adore Abbi Glines and her writing.
There isn't too much mystery involved like a Gllian Flynn novel, but Abbi knows her audience. She understands what we come to her for and she delivers.

As with her other stories in this series, there is a set of lovers who are making their ways back into each others lives.

It's a easy read / listen. There is a good story and a happy ending.
Just enjoy this sweet treat Abbi has given us and add it to your cart =)

Shaw Landon loved Rule Archer from the moment she laid eyes on him. Rule is everything a straight-A pre-med student like Shaw shouldn't want - and the only person she's never tried to please. She isn't afraid of his scary piercings and tattoos or his wild attitude. Though she knows that Rule is wrong for her, her heart just won't listen.

Luke Boone doesn't know exactly what his uncle Rust is involved in, but he wants in on it - the cars, the money, the women. And it looks like he's finally getting his wish. When Rust hands him the managerial keys to the garage, they come with a second set - one that opens up the door to tons of cash and opportunity. Though it's not exactly legal, Luke's never been one to worry about that sort of thing. Especially when it puts him behind the wheel of a Porsche 911 and onto the radar of a gorgeous socialite named Rain.

I really liked the story of Luke and Rain. The narrators did a fabulous job of reading this tale.
The book was very well written, of course, the author being one of my favorites.
Just like Burying Water though, this book is almost a stressful read. You want to know what happens, but you know it's a complicated set up, so it's stressful to figure out how it will end.
It's well worth a credit :)

Every story has two sides, and in this new book the epic love story between Kiera and Kellan is shown through his eyes. All Kellan Kyle needs is his guitar and some clean sheets of paper. Growing up in a house that was far from a home, he learned a hard lesson: You're worthless. Now his life is comfortably filled with passionate music, loyal bandmates, and fast women...until he meets her.

Get ready for an intense read if you take on this series! This author has a way of bringing the characters to life. To where you love them, hate them and seriously start to care for them.... as if they are real!

Loved this book in Kellen's point of view. While reading Kiera's side in the 1st three, I always wondered what Kellen was doing when he was out, where he went, what was going on in his head. And come to find out, he was so emotional and invested in her! I almost wanted to strangle our little Kiera after hearing his side of the story. But isn't that what a good author does...make you care so much that you want to strangle an imaginary character?!
Get this book - but totally read the other three too! Worth the credit!

She was determined to never again inflict that kind of pain on anyone, especially the soulful, talented man who held her heart. But life offers new challenges for every relationship, and when Kiera’s love is put to the ultimate test, will it survive? Love is easy...trust is hard.

Loved, loved, loved book 1.
Book 2 didn't disappoint as a follow up :)
This is the authors best trilogy. Have read the other and it was good, but this one was great. Spectacular. Wonderfully delightful.
The narrator was fantastic as Kiera again and I love her other voices. Her Australian accent is delightful and her performance of Griffin is the best! Griffin is my favorite character in the whole series. Comic relief is always the best :) I giggle whenever his lines are delivered.
I've listened to this series three times now, and am patiently waiting for the release of book 4, from Kellen's view point.
Read this side of the story 1st... You won't be disappointed!

As a child, Landon Lucas Maxfield believed his life was perfect and looked forward to a future filled with promise - until tragedy tore his family apart and made him doubt everything he ever believed. All he wanted was to leave the past behind. When he met Jacqueline Wallace, his desire to be everything she needed came so easy.… As easy as it could be for a man who learned that the soul is breakable and that everything you hoped for could be ripped away in a heartbeat.

This is a beautifully written book in Lucas/ Landon's point of view. The companion book was amazing and I read it first, but there is so much more detail to the story that comes out in this version. I loved hearing about his adolescence spent on the beach :)
The narrator is awesome. Sometimes they don't match up with the tone/ feel of the book, but this one absolutely does :)
