Black Dagger Brotherhood - Dark Lover.

Dark Lover (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #1)Dark Lover by J.R. Ward

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I hate giving bad reviews, but really, this book just made me do it! I know there're a lot of fans of BDB out there and no offense, I'm just not one of them.


Someone recommended this book to me because I liked VA. I just got done with this book..I came here to see WHY people liked it. It was a freakin' waste of my time & money.

Vamp meets Girl. Girl gets horny. They have sex. Oh no, God forbid they talk. They have sex the first time they meet. It's not even a natural hook-up. It's a creepy tale where the emotionally compromised vamp feels all these new things like love and jealousy after shagging her. God knows why. There's no flirting, no emotional connection whatsoever and nothing leading up to the 'deed'. I still don't understand where the love & possessiveness came from. I'd understand if the author tried to categorize this book as erotica, but honestly, even the sex wasn't great.

All this wouldn't matter if there was a good story to it. But I got so bored. So SO bored. It's just my opinion but I would just like there to be a REASON for the romance, if there's any real romance at all. The chapters focusing on the relationship between Wrath and Beth just seemed like there was no real flow to it. I didn't feel their emotions grow. There was no smooth transition from one chapter to the next, it was abrupt.

Also, WHAT IS WITH THE CHARACTER NAMES?? Wrath? Rhage? Zsadist? Phury? Oh and I just looked up another one - Vishous. Um, hello? Wordplays? Couldn't she get more creative? Maybe there's a reason for these names, I just haven't bothered finding out. I couldn't finish the book.

I wasted an entire night trying to give it a shot.
