Time Warp Tuesday! Travel back to 4/26/2014 • Dark Lover by @JRWard1 (4.5 stars)
(click the banner to see all my TWT post)
This week I’m jumping back to 2014. The majority of my friends had read about these sexy vampires so I jumped on the bandwagon just a little late. Last April Ms. Ward released The King which happens to be a book about the same character from book one, Dark Lover. WRATH!
I’ve read the eleven books leading up to The King and plan to read it soon. The newest book, The Shadows, was released last month. One thing I know is I don’t want to fall too far behind or it will take me a long time to catch up.
On April 26, 2014, I read Dark Lover by JR Ward. It was the start of Beverly from Reading is Sexy and me conquering this series. We spent the summer reading one book, from the series, each weekend. Which is no small task because each book is between 400 to 500 pages.

**4.5 BITE ME stars**
The Black Dagger Brotherhood series is NOT your teen daughter’s Twilight books. The PG version of vampires will NOT be found in the following pages. The Brotherhood is NOT teenager vampires but instead men who aren’t afraid to protect what is rightfully theirs. They don’t shy away from sex and marking a woman as their own.
DARK LOVER is Wrath’s story.
W – warrior
R – ruler
A – alpha
T – the King
H – honor
