Ward, for perpetuating the stereotype that most cops are violent idiots who were probably bullied at school and now take out all their rage on criminals, because a badge and ID card now legally allows them to. And while this Billy Riddle kid who almost raped Beth confesses his crime the moment this hilariously over-the-top depiction of a hard-nosed police officer threatens to whack him in the privates so hard that he'll be 'pissing sitting down for a week', what would have happened if it was a case of mistaken identity?
Butch would have egg on his face in the form of having his badge and gun taken away, and he'd probably be forced to pay out massively in compensation. When Butch finds Billy in the morgue later that afternoon, he threatens him and really physically abuses him. Grabbing him by the lapels, slamming him against the wall, slapping him around the head, and breaking his nose. Now, I'm not saying that Billy doesn't deserve this kind of punishment for his horrible crime, I'm just shocked that anyone would think any police investigation revolves around mercilessly beating up a suspect and apparently putting some of them in hospital!
You know that tense interrogation scene in The Dark Knight where Batman interviews The Joker and slams his head into the table and throws him around the room and shakes him and slams him against the wall? That's a cool scene, but it's complete and utter fantasy! Butch took that type of good cop bad cop routine and amplified it, and it's fucking ridiculous. Boy, we are in for a ride.
Now, let's look away from our human characters for a moment, and onto the vampires. First things first. The vampires all have absolutely ridiculous names. I mean it. Wrath is one of our main characters, and besides being described as what appears in my mind as the horrifying cross between Vegeta from Dragon Ball Z and Neo from The Matrix , he's at least… okay as a character. He's boring, but hey, we've got ridiculous names to talk about!
Tohrment 2. Rhage 3. Phury 4. Zsadist 5. Vishous These all sound like names a really crappy DJ or band or artist would give themselves. Speaking of that, there's mention of a band called 'Tomato Eater'. So, he's a tortured soul who enjoys pain. He's got tattoos and piercings all over the place, and he's heavily scarred because of his addiction to pain.
So surely his name should be Mhasokhist? Of course, Beth isn't just there to look pretty. No, she has connections to the vampires, in that her father Darius has just been killed off via a car bomb, and lo and behold, he's a vampire!
Her body is transitioning now she's come of age, I guess, and so the Black Dagger Brotherhood puts her under their protection.
She begins noticing something's off, and then… there was the mother of all awful vampire sex scenes. I'm no prude, but the writing was just hysterically awful, not erotic in the least. Ward seems obsessed with the shape of her characters' faces, with undulation and curvaceousness. Now, in this sex scene, Beth is rocked by a wave of lust when Wrath, a creepy looking guy dressed all in black leather, stalks into her apartment.
Normal people would tell him to get out, call the cops, you know, be a bit freaked out. Not Beth! No, she quite happily lets the weirdo chomp on his cigarillo which is not a sexy image in the least — it makes me think of some corrupt old oil baron , then close the distance between them, and yes, it all ends up in the bedroom. And if you thought the sex scenes in the Sookie Stackhouse books were bad Beth's breasts descriptively strain against her top, Wrath's John Thomas throbs like it has its own heartbeat, Beth's body undulates in a sexy wave If there was ever a time I wanted brain bleach, it was now.
I mean, for gods' sake, when Beth decides halfway through foreplay that she doesn't really want to have sex after almost being raped the night before, like Khal Drogo from A Game of Thrones , he grumpily says 'no' to her refusal and continues anyway because he lusts after her so much. And Beth just lets him! Dead sexy. Then there's a description of Wrath's abdominal muscles looking like someone had inserted paint-rollers underneath his skin.
Because home improvement is, need I remind you, dead sexy. Another bizarre choice was the security at a mechanic's workshop being 'tighter than a tick'. I understand that ticks do clamp down something awful on skin resulting in Mr. Tweezers meeting Mr. Tick , but that is a godawful comparison.
The terminology is also a really big problem in this book. The reader occasionally gets vampire-specific lingo, such as shellan and doggan. If you're curious as to what they mean, well, basically a shellan is the permanent partner of a vampire, and bonded to them for eternity. A doggan is a servant of a higher-ranking vampire. And since the vampires in this book all seem to be rich, princely bad boys, they happily ignore their wives and make sure Fritz the butler knows his place every once in a while.
However, the most major problem that The Black Dagger Brotherhood has in this regard is that those terms are not defined in the slightest. I had to go 'well I guess since shellans are kind of like wives then Admittedly, TBDB has an interesting take on the vampire mythos. Rather than the Black Dagger Brotherhood feeding from humans to sate their appetites, they actually feed off each other.
Human blood is their equivalent of junk food, in fact. It fills you up, but not for long. Being exposed to sunlight results in second and third degree burns before turning into ashes, and the vampires even have their own religion, where the Scribe Virgin is the embodiment of good, and the Omega is the embodiment of evil who creates soulless 'Lessers'.
Interesting, but there are still some incredibly flawed things about this book. I also remember sitting back whilst reading this book and realising just how much of a sausage fest it was. There are more than 10 men featured as protagonists, antagonists, or deuteragonists, and barely 5 female characters.
Now, this isn't too much of a problem. I don't demand that the books I read have an equal balance of the sexes, it's just that the female characters are awfully written here, like some of them were just an afterthought. Beth is attractive and has no common sense whatsoever. I don't care that she and Wrath are fated to be together, but you do not let some creep come into your apartment and have his way with you because you're rocked by feelings of lust. The other female characters are underdeveloped wives, or prostitutes who wind up murdered.
There's a smidgen of back-story to one of them, whose name is Mary, but otherwise, they're just cheap trollops who are there to dress provocatively and get killed for it. I barely got to know Wellsie or Marissa, two of the 'wives' of our main vampire characters, because there's little to no background information about them.
Wellsie is pregnant and deeply in love with her mate. That's it. Marissa is mated to Wrath but breaks up with him when he gets serious with Beth and then her brother Havers is all like: The pacing in this novel is also a major problem. Things seem to happen much too fast.
Stuff like character relations, discovering vital plot information, getting over the shock of something And then we get distracted away from the main plot to focus on inane shit like Beth and Wrath having sex, Marissa and Butch having sex, and over the course of twenty or so bloody pages near the end, we have Wrath and Beth getting married.
You know. Let's forget about this serial killer and his lackey, Billy Riddle. Let's get married in an impromptu ceremony, even though we didn't know each other from Adam two weeks ago! The ending is also as clumsy as Bambi trying to walk across that frozen pond. Far too much happens in the course of those pages, and there are several fake-outs which really got on my nerves. One of the Brotherhood is supposed to have betrayed them all, then oh no he didn't actually.
One of the villains is killed, but the other one escapes after shooting one of our heroes and setting his dogs pit-bull terriers, since of course that ugly stereotype will never go away on another. Then there's a long and convoluted scene in the hospital, and a rather desperate grab for a sequel in the form of a certain character being resurrected from the dead.
So, awful pacing plus badly-written sex plus terribly-written female characters in the middle of a complete sausage fest of vampires and humans who are ridiculous archetypes served to make this book a really bad experience for me. I'm told that this is just the first book in a fairly good series, and the fans even agree that this book is hardly liquid gold, but I do not care enough to get the sequels, based on this.
I may give TV shows a three episode litmus test before dropping them in case they do turn out to be amazing , but I am much less forgiving with book series.

I am getting sick of the these great fighters that remind me of want to be thugs with their slang and cars and rap music.
But to redeem them she tosses in leather? Not to mention a blind hero who can smell how the heroine looks????? Anywho I give it 25 more pages. Oh did anyone else skip the parts of Mr. X I just can't stand them No screw it I'm done. View all 26 comments. Think of every bad vampire clichee you've ever heard of and now apply that to a book - you've just thought of Dark Lover by JR Ward.
I will never understand Goodreads ratings, because this book is just ridiculously eye-roll inducing. I should have quit while I was ahead - the fact that our female lead protagonist nearly gets raped in a back alley in the first chapter of the book should have been warning enough of what was to come.
Then came the most ridiculous scene with our lead male protagnonis Think of every bad vampire clichee you've ever heard of and now apply that to a book - you've just thought of Dark Lover by JR Ward.
Then came the most ridiculous scene with our lead male protagnonist, the badass, sunglass-wearing, "hardcore rap" listening vampire Wrath.
Yes, my first instinct when a burly looking male stranger breaks into my apartment is not to call the cops, but to have instant unprotected sex with him. That's just what I would do.
And of course, it would be the best sex of my life. Then came the names of the vampires in the Brotherhood. Because nothing says "don't mess with me" like phonetically spelled names. I'm not making this up, those are really their names.
The Bad Guys are so evil and twisted, and the vampires are all-powerful. There's a big build-up to a show down, which lasts all of about 2 minutes in an anti-climactic let-down. Let's face it, this book is a sorry excuse of raunchy sex scenes strung together by a poor semblance of a plot. The characters are poorly developed - read, not at all - and are essentially 2 dimensional entities that react solely on lust and anger, it seems.
Oh and don't get me started on the wedding! How can such a well-educated woman write a book where all the female characters are essentially brain-dead washcloths, apparently only put on this planet to have sex with? It pissed me off. Oh well, some people should just stick to being lawyers, and not writers. I cannot believe it's been so highly recommended to me. Lowest common denominator reading if you ask me. If you're looking for paranormal or urban fantasy of any kind of substance, stay away from this series.
I've put off reading this book for years because I could not handle their ridiculous names: Ew, WHY! This book was every single romance trope thrown into a bottle and shaken to the point of cluster fuck.
Oh, and with some weird as shit Vampire lore sprinkled on top. Super intimidating, asshole, extremely delicious in bed, must-remove-panties-as-soon-as-possible "gorgeous" hero? Long black hair in a widow's peak, only wears leather, insanely massive.
At one point she describes his shoulders as big as a beam. Um, is he a giant? Like, let me keep describing to you how pretty she is , magnet to all men but only feels sexual tingles for one, loses her brain the moment she meets hero, "I just want to help", heroine. Instant, all consuming lust. Devoted, mistreated, heartbroken, unrequited lover of hero who is ditched for new love.
Array of secondary characters that I think we are supposed to love? But that I honestly just saw there to remind us of just how pretty Beth is. Did I mention that she is gorgeous? Well, she is!
Okay, I must stop myself now because I'm trying to keep this short. Just a few other quick issues I have. Extremely inappropriate sex scenes: This is a romance. There is no need to rush it. I only made it through two sex scenes but, damn.
They were bad. The first is two nights after Beth is almost raped. Wrath breaks into her house, in the middle of the night oh, and let me just say this is after breaking in the night before and terrifying the shit out of her and after a few moments of utter terror Beth is hit with a wave of intense, I-cannot-stop-myself lust and they proceed to rip each others clothes off and bone.
Of course, Wrath is telling himself the whole time that this is a horrible idea. But alas, the dick wants what the dick wants. The second one is after Beth has a complete mental break down about finding out she and he is a vampire.
She's terrified. She's running. She's screaming. She's fighting like a feral animal. She's sobbing. Their boning. Wait, what? Oh, sex will help her feel better. Every and all characters are over the top and suck: Honestly, what is even the point of the other characters? Pretty much the only original vampire lore that JR Ward stuck with was that the sun is a big no-no. What is the point of being a vampire if you don't drink from humans.
What is the point of being in hiding from humans if they have nothing to worry about?! It's like she threw in any and everything that came into her head. Wrath is blind, but don't worry he can smell what Beth looks like. Ew, what the fuck? Do the vamp have powers? Oh, do they. JR Ward is giving them out like candy, and absolutely none of them are explained. The world building is terrible, everything goes and absolutely nothing is explained.
What is a shellan? What is a doggen? Well, my friends you're going to have to use the powers of observation to figure that one out because like everything else - this isn't explained. In the beginning Mr. X has no powers, then all the sudden he does. Because JR Ward just felt like it.
That is literally the explanation that is given. Reading this book feels like there was no outline at all. It was just written as it came into her head.
It's choppy, badly written and there are no rules. Every world, even fantasy ones, has to have rules!! Dark Lover is all types of trying too hard. No wait, I did know. I was once again tricked by a GR hype that I am baffled by. Ugh, don't waste your time on this. If you want a PR with badass female characters, a unique and super interesting world, an outlined plot, swoon-worthy men, and hilarious and endearing moments read the Guild Hunter series by Nalini Singh.
Not this shit. Never this shit. View all 40 comments. I am obviously the minority here. I found it hard to take seriously. Secondly, the way Wrath is described as having long hair and wearing tight leather all the time…nope. Literally every time his tight leather pants or long flowing hair was mentioned it was like someone threw a bucket of cold water over my head. It was so distractingly unattractive to me it pulled me out of the story every time.
But not this. Lastly, there were just WAY too many subplots and different points of view to keep track of. Honestly this is one of the things I dislike about paranormal romances in general- there is too much non-romance related stuff going on. And I get it. I get that the author wants to set up this completely new world with lots of different characters and drama.
But I just found it boring. Obviously LOTS of people really loved this book. Which I find interesting and confusing. On to the next!

It's like How did that person get through more than 10 pages of this author's prose and Normally I don't rate books I can't finish, but I'm doing that now to prevent the Goodreads recommendation algorithm from recommending similar books. No sarcasm here. I would truly like to know.
For science. What were they even thinking. What was I thinking. Looking back, now that I've read some of it, it's like of course I would have hated this book no matter what, but since it was a book club pick, I gave it the benefit of the doubt, which was a lot more than it deserved.
The writing is Wrath Vishous Rhage Tohrment Phury Zsadist These alone would have made me quit the book right on the spot, but you know, since this was a book club pick, I gritted my teeth and toughed it out. Made it all the way through the first chapter and that was as far as I could go.
And that was with great effort and even greater perseverance because the writing is hilariously bad. It's the kind of bad that would be okay if it were satire or a parody, but this book is neither. So it's just bad. View all 19 comments. And I have no idea why. Why the hype over this series?
Oh you have. Is your medicine cabinet empty?? R 93, people on Goodreads have read this book. Far FAR away. Because clearly their library needs an over-due make over. I really wanted to like this book. Hot Vampires, a secret underworld, way glowing rabid fan-girl reviews, what's not to like about that?
Instead I was treated to more of the same formula: The twist of course is that this good girl is actually half-vampire. The writing is extremely formulaic, and f I really wanted to like this book. The writing is extremely formulaic, and follows a typical horror novel plot line: There are bad cops, good cops, and human allies who might actually be enemies. We have some really wonderful baby powder scented villains no, I'm not joking who are trying to kill all the honorable vampires. X as he's called is the most one dimensional villain that I've ever read.
His scenes are really quite disgusting. I think that all the book covered just a week, a week and a half and it was a really small time frame for all those things that happened..
Wrath's and Beth's love was very beautiful but too rushed X was a really ugly and evil person Who's Butch??? Don't ask!!! Butch is a long story, you have to find out all about him by yourselves!!! No, i won't stop reading their adventures and i think that it was a little difficult for me this book because it was the first of the series and it worked as an introduction to this unknown world I can not wait to find out more about them and i'm really wondering about Zsadist!!!
He is so complicated!!! Also, i really liked that this kind of vampires weren't killing another human being without a reason Every one of them had his own woman, his Shellan, and they were feeding themselves from her Their laws and rules were really nice and intriguing!!! I want to learn more about them!!! After the writing of my review, i was searching for quotes to post in here, and i really think that the Greek translation of this book was awful!!!
I hope the next one to be better!!! View all 14 comments. I will have to say that even though there is a lot of cheese first sex scene has a man ripping off his shirt and all the buttons flying everywhere and the author seriously used the word shit-kickers multiple times, it was a lot of fun. But, I can totally see why this series is a love or hate thing. First there are Uber Alpha Males, the brotherhood is full of extra testosterone and men that think of women as good 3.
First there are Uber Alpha Males, the brotherhood is full of extra testosterone and men that think of women as good for two things food and sex. For the price of admission, you get a splitting headache, a nearly irresistible urge to commit murder, and an inferiority complex.
Little did he know she is everything he never knew he wanted or needed. We are introduced to the rest of the cast of brothers and each seems to have their own cross or curse to bear. Each one has a name that indicates they are in the brotherhood like Wrath, Phury, Visschious, Wrage and Zsadist.
It looks like there are even some fun bromance things happening and I do love a good bromance. Take three, turn your ringer off, and sleep. View all 19 comments. I'm going to keep this short and to the point. I cannot wait to learn more about these complex Vampires and their back stories. I am literally kicking myself in the bum for not starting these sooner. Wrath and Beth were absolutely wonderful.
I loved that Beth was a smart, fierce, and take no crap type of heroine. It was definitely a breath of fresh air to not have to just ignore the heroine and focus on the man candy. I cannot wait to start th I'm going to keep this short and to the point.
I cannot wait to start the next book which I believe is about Rhage whom I am in love with just from this book. It should be great. To sum it up: View all 50 comments.
X y los restrictors, todo se me ha quedado un poco cojo. View all 5 comments. Apart from the beginning that was cliche filled, I adore the rest of the book. To be honest I expected more from this book, I've heard so much about this author, and am disappointed with what I found. The writing is actually great, I adore it, multiple POVs, same goes for the world building. I love all the characters in this book, can't wait for more of them, especially Butch's story, he better get one.
The plot is great 3. The plot is great but not original, I've read something like it before, but still I love the way the author portrayed this story. The romance is major instant love, cliche filled but still fun to read. Different standard than for other books. Paranormal Romance is my choice of guilty pleasure when I feel the need for something ultra-light although the last tries were more of a punishment than pleasure.
This one was entertaining, sexy The love story is pathetic, another instalove between a mortal female and a sex god vampire. At least he had an interesting background story. What I liked was the brotherhood. I could feel the chemistry between the mem 2.
I could feel the chemistry between the members and I enjoyed their exchange of lines. I found some of the characters to be interesting and I am willing to read more about them. There are many POVs, too many I would say. Still, something different as all the other books I read from this genre were 1st person narrative. I think that sometimes reading a decent book right after reading something that you really liked can dampen your feelings about the current read a bit.
Since I just read Halfway to the Grave and Some Girls Bite and enjoyed both of those books, this one fell a little flat for me. Obviously, only having a story with Beth and Wr 2. Obviously, only having a story with Beth and Wrath would have been silly, but I just didn't find myself caring about the rest of the story outside of the actual mating.
I enjoyed the book enough to want to continue on with the series and really look forward to book 3, since Zsadist fascinates me. He seems like a hardass needing to be turned. Overall, the series is better than the first book lets on. If you're unsure how to feel after reading book 1, I'd at least give book 2 a shot.
If you like that one, chances are you'll end up enjoying the series like I did. If you don't like that one, this would be the place to quit out then.

For some reason I stopped reading this series before the ninth book. I don't remember the reason, though. Dark Lover is a decent beginning of the series, so you could say it does its job pretty well. If you are into paranormal romances featuring vampires who have their own deity of sorts and an enemy creepy enough to I may read this again some time in the future. If you are into paranormal romances featuring vampires who have their own deity of sorts and an enemy creepy enough to be taken seriously, you are able to accept the rules of the world as far as the behaviour of the characters goes, you might like this story.
Later in the series, the names go crazy but there's nothing too distracting about these. I enjoyed the place this book ended up at, and I'm definitely going to read more in the series. Ward's female characters drive me completely and utterly bonkers, but the seething hormonal and scarred Brotherhood should be good fun.

Damn if I know how to rate this one! To make it fair and square I'll settle for a 3! View all 3 comments. Using my kindest words, I can only say that I liked this story. But I had high expectations from this book, since it has many good reviews and high ratings. Honestly, I have read much better paranormal romances. I had prepared myself for quite a ride!
I just don't understand how this book has ended up being 1st in ma Using my kindest words, I can only say that I liked this story. I just don't understand how this book has ended up being 1st in many lists. I liked the world setting a lot. Beth, the main female character, wasn't annoying. She was neither too weak nor the type that tries to look strong by killing and hitting stuff.
I could not. I can see why so many may love Wrath I didn't like him! He thinks he is strong. They just jumped each other! I don't buy instant love easily and this one didn't manage to win me over. Among the many male characters in this book, my favorite was Butch which surprised the hell out of me.
I actually preferred the human male to the vampire one in a book! I actually forgot Wrath's name and had to look it up to write this review. That certainly speaks for itself, and I did NOT like the way wrath treated the one single woman who had always been at his side before Beth's arrival.
Also, there were many Pop culture references and slang that I found very annoying. It's like the author doesn't expect to have any readers from different countries or cultures.
I did not love the book as much as my 'paranormal romance friends', it had too much in the terms of traditional paranormal romance subplot for me BUT did enjoy it quite a bit. Wrath is a king of sorts among his kind, followed by a band of loyal brothers, all powerful and all troubled in their own way. He must lead them against a war of vampire hunters, while honoring his promise to protect a friends daughter as she "transforms.
She was half-blood and didn't know about her father until the beginning of the story. Ward developed her own version of vampire; here they do not feed off of people, but off others vampires instead for nourishment as human blood is too weak for them. The writer is talented and does make it easy to keep reading. She employs the shifting third-person point of view instead of the traditional first-person that's used in most Urban Fantasies and some Paranormal Romances.
I prefer the first-person point of view more but she makes it work here. The book was at it's best especially at the beginning when everything tragic was happening, it was all getting established and there were plenty of obstacles. It started losing my interest a little as it went from an extraordinary beginning to a typical paranormal-romance center. Thought the sex scenes were a little too numerous sometimes but for the most part the passion part was hot enough. I dug most of the characters.
I didn't like the change for Darius at the very end, and from the description I just didn't see Wrath as attractive and he didn't do anything for me. Some of the brothers were fun though, and my favorites were - surprisingly, the human Butch and the butler Fritch sp?
I think the characters DO hold a lot of potential for becoming as addicting as many of the fans state, they just didn't make it in my heart yet with this book. Not bad characters but I didn't fall in love with anyone so far. Wish to continue the series to see how everything progresses, it's a creatively structured world. I may grow more into it with continuing books. Just have to get my hands on the second and see.
With how easily I become addicted to series, this is a strong possibility. The hardest books to review are the 3 star ones. They aren't great, but they aren't bad either. They're just there hovering in the middle trying to get our attention. Dark Lover is the first book in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. A Vampire brotherhood that protects and fights for their own kind. It does take a while to get into this book.
The first half is sex. Just sex. Though very hot sex, but still just sex! The second half we start to differentiate between the brothers and the storylin The hardest books to review are the 3 star ones. The second half we start to differentiate between the brothers and the storyline begins to show its head - between sex of course. The plot itself isn't anything too complicated or deep. It's the beginning of a series that has potential to be pretty cool. But this first book was nothing to write home about.
It's more of an introduction than anything else. We're introduced to Ward's vampire lore which is pretty interesting and somewhat unique. The world she built is very convincing. It shows that she put some effort into it - except maybe for the names; they are awful!!
