Summary:

The first novel of J. R. Ward's New York Times bestselling Black Dagger Brotherhood series features a unique take on vampire lore and heavy doses of sensuality.

    JR Ward is one of those writers that grabs me on some emotional level that I can't explain. Her Black Dagger Series is terrific and I wanted to listen on audio format . But the books have so many characters I wondered if a single reader could do it justice. I was especially worried since the reader was male and I don't always like how men do female voices. Well it works. The first in the series, Dark Lover introduces this interesting world, with a new twist on the vampire genre. As those who read the books know, it is a somewhat violent world at times. But the characters are well drawn and the whole thing grabs me by the throat. My only complaint is that SA doesn't carry all the books in To-Rent format!

    this book was extremly good! it was suspenful, eroctic and thrilling. im downloading the second book right away and am so excited there are a total of 11 books in ther series. Not a fan of the narrator tho, didnt do the best job. just seemed like he was reading the book and not putting much life in the characters. but the book was still amazing!
