The Black Dagger Brotherhood. Ah! There is so much I could write about this topic. Love this series! I discovered it late, so I had the benefit of reading the first five books back to back. Good times!
I remember the day I discovered J. R. Ward’s series. I’d gone to Borders in search of a new read with nothing specific in mind, so long as it involved the romance shelf. I ended up with the first two Brotherhood books, and I proceeded to the check-out line.
A rather cute, young male cashier scanned my books and his eyes widened. “Have you ever read J. R. Ward before?”
He was too cute for a snarky reply pointing out that I was buying book one in the series. “No.”
Both of his eyebrows shot to his hairline. He smiled at me the way a little boy smiles at an ant hill while holding a magnifying glass over it. Thick voice: “You’re in for it.”
Now, to this day I wonder just what he meant by that. Was he a fan trying to say the books are awesome, but ended up being inadvertently creepy? Or, was he just a brat referencing the hot content? Oh, well.
I’m sure we’re all in for it with Tohrment, heh. I can’t wait!
