BLACK DAGGERHOOD FANS WILL UNDERSTAND!!

So this happened in January!

Last month we had the opportunity for me (Jenny) to read for the first time and for Gitte to re-read along with me, some of her all-time favourite books so we could discuss once I’d finished.

When reading a book to review we always like to spend time discussing our current read, then discuss at length what to read next – you know depending on mood etc.…. As I was travelling and would be in and out of contact it was going to be difficult to sort out our next read, and so it was agreed that as I  would have a lot of downtime hanging around airports and flying I would FINALLY start the Black Dagger Brotherhood series.

This is a series I’ve been dying to read for years and one Gitte has nagged me to read for the same amount of time. So, I did…and OMG! I am in LOVE with these books. I managed to read 3 as I couldn’t stop (and Gitte wouldn’t let me stop) until I read Z’s book. NOW I KNOW WHAT SHE IS TALKING ABOUT!

I’ve loved every book so far, but bloody hell…Z’s book!  He is the ultimate alpha male! There was one scene where I thought I was going to faint! Those of you who have read it will know what I’m talking about, and those of you that haven’t, well…it’s one of the most frustratingly HOTTEST FAN YOURSELF scenes I’ve read. Talk about flooding your lady basement! WOW!

When Gitte told me these books were completely addictive and like no other she was spot on! I get it now! I understand why she’s always so bloody excited every time a new book is announced/released. Yup, I completely feel her nutty excitement now! Now I feel like I can share in her excitement. Whenever she reads a new book in the series and I ask her how it was, she always starts with “bloody hell I wish you had read these so you could feel how I do right now” well now I’m beginning to, and I can somewhat share in her excitement even if I’m not up to book 17 like she is! If you want to know anything BDB related, Gitte is your woman! She lives and breathes this series and is always up to chat to fellow BDB fans new and old!  Check out her latest review (spoiler free, of course) for The Thief (Book 16) and don’t forget to check out our Black Dagger Brotherhood Series reading order.

**Currently Reading**
THE SON & HIS HOPE by PEPPER WINTERS

Oh wow, the prologue had us in tears – this book is going to be emotional! This is Jacob’s book, Ren and Della son from The Ribbon Duet, one of our top reads from 2018, and oh the emotion…we’re already feeling this book deep in our souls! Jacob casts such a lonely figure – torn between finding himself and living up to a promise he can’t break. Pass the tissues!

“Things you should know about me from the very beginning:
I was born to true love, witnessed the destruction it causes and vowed never to let such agony happen to me. I am not a story-teller like my father. I am not a writer like my mother. I am just a son—their son.
I am happy being alone.
And that is all I ever want to be.”

The Son and His Hope is available to pre-order Releasing 12th Feb Ebook 

BROKEN by NICOLA HAKEN – 5 Star Read
MM emotional love story

“Stay with me, Theodore,” he murmurs. “No matter how hard I push, stay with me. Believe in me.”

A moving, sad, hopeful and beautiful MM love story that really touched our hearts. Nicola Haken’s writing was sublime, perfectly executed with so much depth and honesty that took our breath away. Many times, we’re told a character is ‘broken’ yet we don’t experience it. Well, we experienced each powerful moment in Broken, a story we won’t be forgetting in a hurry.

This is our first book by Nicola Haken, and we were completely slayed by James and Theo’s powerful, emotional, intense, sincere and upfront story. A heavy, yet incredibly rewarding read in which Nicola Haken perfectly captured a love story that was as beautiful as it was painful, all done without romanticising James’ mental illness, instead, writing his character with heartbreaking honesty and sensitivity.

THE THIEF (Black Dagger Brotherhood #16) by J.R. WARD
Paranormal – gripping and passionate vampire series.

‘She missed the man she shouldn’t have ever had as if he were a piece of her soul, left behind. But that was the way of it. Destiny was such a thief.’

I’ve really been looking forward to Assail and Sola’s story and as always happens; I inhaled every word as the world was shut out. Whilst yes I loved it, I did feel Sola and Assail took a secondary seat to a new twist in the ongoing saga and the fight which my beloved vampires continue to face.

This is book sixteen, so I’m not going to go into story details in this review, you’re either on this journey or you’re not and the diehard’s like me will know what I am on about.  So many twists and turns, suspense and angst via the numerous ongoing storylines that make up the whole epic-ness that is the Black Dagger Brotherhood. I can never get enough.  Murhder’s story is now next and I’m counting the days because…MURHDER!!!!!!

Just finished – Review to come
NOT A HERO (Sons of the Survivalist #1) by CHERISE SINCLAIR

Romantic Suspense Drama – standalone in a series each about a different character.

In the Alaska wilderness, four streetwise boys became men—and brothers

Now the crazy ex-military survivalist who plucked Gabriel and three other boys from an abusive foster care home has died. But the sarge leaves them a final mission–to revive the dying town of Rescue.

In this first book we meet Gabe, and he’s finding his own peace…with the quiet young woman who seems to have no past. She’s adorable and caring and so very lost. But how can he trust someone who lies to him with every breath she takes?
