Hello everyone, welcome to our Meet the Boys of the Black Dagger Brotherhood event, where this March we celebrate J.R. Ward’s seriously hot and deadly, vampire warriors.

I first entered into the world of the Black Dagger Brotherhood on my holidays last June. After many, many, many, many (you get the idea!) enthusiastic recommendations from fellow reviewers Vickie and Gemma, I downloaded the first three onto my Kindle.

I’m personally always a bit nervous about reading books people have recommended because they really, really love them, and you may get that moment when you pick them up and think…¬†‘Huh? What’s all the fuss about?’ Thankfully I didn’t get that moment! And like Vickie and Gemma before me, I fell I love with those BDB boys. My journey and our shared enthusiasm on Twitter also encouraged both Rebecca and Melanie to pick up the series too.

It’s taken me nine months, reading them around my normal review schedule, but I’ve now read them all, leading up to the much anticipated release of Lover At Last.… God, I so can’t wait to pick it up!!

Now don’t get me wrong, this series has its quirks. The names for starters – Vishous, Zsadist, Payne, Tohrment – they’re pretty awful and they’re spelt wrong *shudder*. Then there’s the language, if I had a swear jar for every time the word ‘shitkickers’ is mentioned I think it would have paid for me to buy the entire series all over again! And don’t get me started on the acronyms…

But, niggles aside, pretty much all the books have been un-put-downable. Pacy, well written, dark, with characters that totally absorb you, many a night I found myself reading much later than I planned desperate to find out what happened next.

I hope you enjoy the reviews, I will also be pulling in Gemma and Vickie and some of the other BCC ladies for a couple of fun discussion posts along the way too…. it wouldn’t be right without them now would it! For those of you not into the series (I don’t believe you exist ūüėČ ), don’t worry we’ll still be posting normal reviews throughout the month too.

~ Laura xoxo

I’d like to win this book because I have yet to read it and I enjoy J R Ward’s books. Thank you so much for the awesome giveaway!


heather March 1, 2013 at 10:27 am

I have heard great things about this series. I would love to win it to see if it lices up to all the hype,plus this would get my friend off my back about how I need to read it. LOL


Gemma March 1, 2013 at 11:28 am

Ooh, this would give you the motivation to read the previous books first which is a must. The series is amazing! I even have a countdown calendar till it comes out.


Lee March 1, 2013 at 11:22 am

This is one of those series that I’ve been meaning to read. It gets so much love that I’m a bit embarrassed that I haven’t read it yet! Thanks for the giveaway!


Carol Ordonha March 1, 2013 at 2:04 pm

I have to win because I have back at Brazil all of them in Portuguese, and now I have to have them in the UK version xD


Karis March 1, 2013 at 2:58 pm

I would love to win because I have been waiting for this book for ages.


Myra Wilson March 1, 2013 at 3:23 pm

Would love to read this book


kara-karina March 1, 2013 at 3:40 pm

Entered as karina sz****yi.
I’d like to win Lover at Last because I would like to see some kind of resolution between the boys – they torture each other too much and way unnecessarily! ūüėČ I also really enjoy this series!


Ailsa March 1, 2013 at 4:48 pm

I’d love to win because I’ve been waiting for the last several books to see what happens between Blay & Qhuinn. I’m super excited that we’re finally getting their story, I’ve liked seeing things gradually develop over the last few books.


Donna @ Book Passion for Life March 1, 2013 at 5:59 pm

Aw, I still haven’t started this series (even though I own the first few) so I’d love to win to add to my collection. Thanks for the chance!


Traci March 1, 2013 at 7:03 pm

I, too, cringe at the names, and the constant naming of Brand Names and “shitkickers” and all of that….and yet they are like CANDY. I can’t put them down. Would love to win this one! Thanks!


Laura March 2, 2013 at 8:12 am

They are like candy lol, so addictive despite the cheesy flaws! ūüėČ


Lucy Poulter March 1, 2013 at 7:24 pm

I would love to win as I REALLY need a great new book to get my teeth into, and this one sounds perfect and right up my street! :)


Sarah Docherty March 1, 2013 at 8:25 pm

I need to read the next book, but don’t have much money, this would save me trying to hunt it down in the library!


Elizabeth @ Nightmare on Bookstreet March 1, 2013 at 10:59 pm



Laura March 2, 2013 at 8:13 am

We’re going to have a discussion over the brothers later in the month, you should stop by for that ūüėČ


Laura March 2, 2013 at 8:15 am

Good luck everyone! For all of you who haven’t started the series I would recommend you start with Dark Lover the first in the series first and reading through as these book wouldn’t really work read out of order.


Lesley March 2, 2013 at 7:01 pm

I love the BDB series, some books more than other though, in particular I love and have reread Zsadist’s book far too many times to mention my copy looks completly dog eared!

I’m counting down the days to the next book:)


michael March 2, 2013 at 8:12 pm

I would love to win because I have been waiting for this book for a long time.


Solange March 3, 2013 at 3:54 am

I would love to win because I haven’t read a good book in ages


Louise B March 3, 2013 at 3:33 pm

I have been waiting for this one for sooooo long!! FINALLY it’s going to happen… you guys know what I mean ūüėČ


alcee clayborne March 3, 2013 at 4:19 pm

I have been reading this series since it first started and have been waiting and waiting for qhuinn and blays story


Donna Barton March 3, 2013 at 10:12 pm

You haven’t really enjoyed reading until reading the BDB!!!! Their Awesome!!!!!


Anonymous March 4, 2013 at 11:59 pm

They really are still the best books around!


Sarah March 5, 2013 at 12:44 am

I’m not a huge fan of the sections written from the Lessers point of view but I love the boys of the BDB! I can’t wait to read Blay and Quinn’s story, I think it’s one of my most anticipated romance books ever :)


Jillian DeMarco March 5, 2013 at 12:55 am

JR Ward is one of my FAVORITE authors!!! I haven’t been able to afford to get any new books… and would just LOVE hers!!


Jillian DeMarco March 5, 2013 at 1:12 am

oops…. I just saw this was UK only :( I live in the US. bummer!!! Sorry!!


Angela Fitzgerald March 5, 2013 at 8:02 am

I would love to win this book. I just began reading the series. My friend had the first four books of the series and she gave them to me. I love the series so far and I would love to get more books to the series. I have been trying to get my hands on as many books as possible since I’ve been spending day and night at the hospital with my mom who’s sick with cancer. I’m not allowed to have my phone in her room. If I could I would listen to an audio book or something. I have been entering giveaway after giveaway trying to win books and accumulate as many books as I can. I am especially hoping to win the box of books because that would tie me over for awhile. I have never heard any of the authors except Cat Adams but I’ve never read anything by her. Don’t be surprised if you don’t see my name a lot. I think I will be reading a lot (as if I don’t :) for quite awhile so I need books. I love reading, even books for the younger gender, YA books, but I especially love urban and paranormal fantasy books.


Lorraine Powell March 5, 2013 at 2:03 pm

Why do I want to win? Because I spend far too much on buying books – not that this is likely to stop, but you can never have too many books, right? Free ones are a total bonus! (And this sounds like a fab series!)


Anonymous March 5, 2013 at 9:53 pm

I had to laugh about the ‘shitkickers’ overkill. I so agree! I con’t even know what they look like. And the language of the ‘brothers’ is at times over the top at times to me. But I’m still a devoted addict and I figure I deserve a copy of Lover at Last too. I’ve been waiting for Quinn’s story forever.


Jen Bell March 6, 2013 at 11:44 am

Love all types of books! Would love to have the chance to read this


Kevin Dooley March 6, 2013 at 7:44 pm

I really need to start stocking up on books to read during the upcoming summer and this book will make a worthy addition!


sj wesley March 6, 2013 at 7:57 pm

because I am a book geek…and proud!


Amanda Wakefield March 6, 2013 at 8:41 pm

Just love reading and winning books is so exciting, a real treat!


Lani Nash March 6, 2013 at 9:37 pm

I need some good books to read, this is why I would like to win.


kristy brown March 6, 2013 at 11:03 pm

I’d love to read this book as my friend has just suggested the author to me and it looks like a good read!


Annamarie Riddiford March 6, 2013 at 11:09 pm

I’d love to win, thank you x


Lindsey Jones March 7, 2013 at 9:40 am

I’d love to win because it looks like good read.


Texas Book Lover March 7, 2013 at 1:31 pm

The BDB is my absolute favorite series. It is what jump started my love of reading and I have been waiting for this particular book for what seems like forever. So I would be ecstatic win a copy of Lover At Last.

Thanks so much!


Neil Lumbers March 7, 2013 at 3:11 pm

I would like to win, because my partner and i like to read to each other.
she loves these books…


Jodie March 9, 2013 at 4:32 am

I have been seeing these books everywhere but I have yet to start reading this series. I really want to try it out but I have been so busy reading everything else I can get my hands on I just have not had the chance to buy them. Sad I know. I love to read, It is my passion and I’m a weirdo and feel it’s important to be able to hold the book in my hand and also support the author by buying the books. Which I then enjoy displaying my book collection throughout my house. So if I win, I will have to go buy the previous books in this series before reading and reviewing the giveaway. Fingers crossed! X


Samra March 9, 2013 at 11:41 pm

I was trying to get to this book for a while, but I failed. So I would really like to win so I can finaly read it. :)


Deanna Postell March 10, 2013 at 11:06 pm

I love JR WARD,!


Karen G March 14, 2013 at 12:27 pm

I am addicted to the series…I love JR Ward and all the BDB boys, but this is the story I have been waiting for!


Samina March 14, 2013 at 9:42 pm

I’d like to know what the fuss is all about. I don’t know why people seem to love BDB books so much


Joanna W. March 20, 2013 at 4:44 am

I might killover if I was to win Lover at Last. I absolutely love the WARDen’s BDB world. Every Brother;s story has been the BOMB, but I’m especially anxious for LaL because Qhuay has been five years in the making, and their time is finally here. The wait has been killing me. I so want to know how things are going to pan out for everyone. =D


Joanna W. March 20, 2013 at 10:19 pm

Oopsy… Just realized this was UK only, so please ignore my entries (from US). Sorry about tha t- Thanks anyway!


Katia March 21, 2013 at 1:44 pm

I would love to win this book because it’s been on the top of my to-read list.


Tracey Peach March 21, 2013 at 3:22 pm

It sounds like a brilliant book xxx


Clare Perquin March 21, 2013 at 8:50 pm

I just love to read!


Amanda J March 21, 2013 at 9:59 pm

Love this series, can’t wait to read lover at last.


Victoria March 22, 2013 at 7:11 pm

I would love to win as I really want to read this book. Sounds fantastic.


Solange March 23, 2013 at 10:54 pm

I’d love to win because it looks like a great read.


Vikki @ V's Book Life March 24, 2013 at 5:04 pm

Because it’s Blay and Quinn.

Duh ūüėČ

That is all.


Chris Bails March 24, 2013 at 8:55 pm

I am dying for this book. I love the brothers, especially Vishous. Plus I think Blah and Quinn and gonna be the hottest thing together. It is gonna burn the pages of this book. I love M/M storylines. Two guys together is hot and even hotter I’d they are sexy.


andrea miles March 25, 2013 at 7:59 am

It sounds right up my street


Mary Ann Woods March 25, 2013 at 11:18 am
