As that it did fall flat in laces When it was good it was awesome But there were times where it became a bit of a snoozefest too I am still a die hard BDB fan and will keep faithfully following this series as long as JR Ward keeps writing it It really does amaze me how her mind works and is able to come up with such an original storyline There have been a few duds in this series but this isn t one of them I think Ward may be getting her groove back babies Kronk must have
pulled the lever because this was a fun rideOkay not that fun Because the lever because this was a fun rideOkay not that fun Because as is the custom everyone is going to be dying and saying tearful goodbyes to their loved ones and such but we can know that it s all going to turn out okay Usually cough Trez got screwed coughThis book focuses on John Matthew and Murhder Yes it s spelled correctly and don t act surprised There s Rhage and huinn and Tohrment and Vishous and Rehvengeand I just need to say JR Ward utting a fucking extra H in a name doesn t make the name better It just makes the letter H worse Is there supposed to be a thing with vampires and silent 4 stars The Savior is the 17th book of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series and it s one I ve been waiting on for uite a while The elusive male who used to be a brother Murhder As always there are other characters who have a huge StoryBranding: Creating Stand-Out Brands Through The Power of Story part in the book and in this book the secondary storyline was that of John Matthew and Xhex which makes sense since Murhder and Xhex have history Murhder is the only member of the BDB to ever be expelled The rumor is he went insane but the you get to know Murhder and what happened him the you realize he s not as crazy as expected Jeez you go rogue once and slaughter a bunch of humans after they torture your girlfriend and suddenly you re a leaper Murhder is compelled to come back to Caldwell to save someone And he needs the help of the brotherhood to do it Through this rescue mission he meets Dr Sarah Watkins Sarah has just learned something that has her uestioning everything in her life andast relationship Now she is trying to make things right and to do that she finds herself on her very own rescue mission I loved watching Sarah and Murhder together and seeing their relationship build There was no
"shortage of sexy "of sexy which is always nice What I really loved in this story was the bromance that Murhder and JM had going on Every scene they were in together had me smiling huge Overall I liked this book a lot It wasn t my favorite BDB book but it was a great addition to the series I love this group of characters and I ll never grow tired of reading about them The one thing I found off about this one is that there was zero mention of Syn or Jo Early and it s been confirmed that book number 18 will be their book It seemed strange to me Also it will be heavy on Butch and Lassiter so you know it s going to be loads of fun I can t wait to jump into The Sinner next year when it s release.

YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A NOVEL THAT CONTAINS SOare looking for a novel that contains so emotion and imagery you will gasp cry and smile within the same chapter you have to check out this book She is just flat out an amazing storyteller you will not forgetcopy received for review considerationfull review 2 unexciting could have been better stars Ok first of all I didn t hate this I was just overall bored with itSecond I actually liked the couple I was one of the few who had reservations about Murhder getting his book right now honestly he could have never gotten a story and I would have been fine with it shrugs But Ward did a retty decent job in addressing all the sordid historyloose strings with this character and fleshing him out I ended up liking him He was a nice combination of fierce loyal brave selfless self deprecating funny and vulnerable His vulnerability is what honestly saved him from being repetitive and a cliche Brother Sarah Watkins made a nice heroine I really enjoyed her too Her entrance into Murhder s world Fantastic Edge of my seat Now what didn t work The Lignin Biodegradation pacing It was absolute shit It dragged inarts it didn t need to and went super fast in Pure Chance places that needed to be betteraced out Prime example the hero and heroine s relationship for starters The warp speed romantic arcs in short time frames for storylines that have no business being uick has become a thing for Ward recently And I honestly don t understand why I ve been calling this out for some time now and I m tired of repeating myself Stop having your characters fall in love in 2 days time spanIt s nonsense Especially in a complex world like the BDB universe where there are so many outside factors that The Lady and the Lionheart play into it Especially with aairing where one half is human That s the biggest issue for me here Sarah being so uick to adapting to the Vampire world and wanting to stay all because she has a lonely life was a little too uick and convenient for me The fact that she had zero hesitation in wanting to walk away from her human life to be with Murhder after knowing him for a span of 24 hours In the venerable history of the Black Dagger Brotherhood only one male has ever been expelled but Murhder’s insanity gave the Brothers no choice Haunted by visions of a female he could not save he nonetheless returns to Caldwell on a mission to right the wrong that ruined him However he is not repared for what he must face in ,
S just ludicrous It felt like I was reading a novella rather than a full length story and that s not good Let your characters fall in love gradually lease Ward no longer believes in slow burn or something I shouldn t even have to be saying this I get it s PR but I d like a little realism when it comes to dealing with 2 conflicting worldsspecies m kay It s not so easy to adapt and adjust like Sarah did in here all because she was so fascinated by them And I m not saying I didn t like the
Fact That We Didn Tthat we didn t the typical overused OMG you have fangs You re a monster GET AWAY cliche reaction I actually liked that she didn t balk and freak out like expected But what would have helped and made the love story believable and have better footing is if we saw her spending time with Murhder before saying ILY A slow gradual rogression would have been nice Give me at least 2 3 freaking weeks I don t get why Ward is getting so stingy with the timeline And you want the BDB world to catch up with the Fallen Angel timeline The rate we are going we will have to wait for another 20 books for Adrian and Eddie to show up Just saying Or maybe I have it backwards Whatever I just know that for a full length 400 A (kinda) Country Christmas page book these stories have no business or reason to only cover 2 4 days These aren t novellas so what s the hurry Especially when you are dealing with full redemption arcs coughTheChosencough and big reveals It just stunts and undermines the HEA and character growth IMO And it sucks because Murhder and Sarah actually had chemistry But Ward mucked it up for a rushed convoluted messy resolution And don t even get me started on that ridiculous hand fasted last minute immortality loophole for Sarah at the very end view spoiler A magic diamond Really THAT S IT hide spoiler When I first met Murhder inrevious books in the series I immediately became intrigued with the vampire who was being labeled as insane I expected a very dark character who was going to give some of the other Brother s tortured stories a run for their money Unfortunately Murhder s story turned out to be a lot lighter of a read than I anticipated I did enjoy the story it just didn t reach the epic heights that I thought it would I know better than to ut expectations on any book but in this case I had thus I was bound to be somewhat disappointed The story for me didn t start getting really good until about 30% into it I realize we needed a bit of history on Sarah and her work life etc I found it to be boring though and I was eager to get to where her and Murhder would meet and start engaging with each other The other couple that layed a big art in this instalment was John and Xhex In the ast they weren t my favourite couple but I must say I loved how they fit into this storyline and I actually fell in love with them after this bookAll in all this was a great addition to the BDB series My main complaint with this book Is uest for redemptionDr Sarah Watkins researcher at a biomedical firm is struggling with the loss of her fellow scientist fiancé When the FBI starts asking about his death she uestions what really happened and soon learns the terrible truth Her firm is conducting inhumane experiments in secret and the man she thought she knew an. ,
