    At Cincinnati QA event 6 April 2019 Four books announcement 1 2020 BD The Sinner Syn, Jo Early, Butch and Lassiter 2 December 2019 Where Winter Finds You Trez Selena 3 August 2019 Blood Truth BDB Legacy Boone 4 BDB legacy 2020 The Jackal about Rhage s half brotherIn details From J.R Ward s Facebook page The full transcript of the 2019 event for The Savior in Cincinnati, Ohio.Abbreviations that may be used HEA Happily Ever AfterSV Scribe Virgin WARNING Numerous SPOILERS ahead Q What is the next BDB hardcover book A The 2020 hardcover BDB book is The Sinner, featuring Sin and Jo Early Q What was the hardest book for you to write A The hardest story was Zsadist Emotionally, it was tough I ve always said that I d never re read Zsadist s book The other one was Blay and Qhuinn, but because it was a clusterf ck of what could go wrong, did Computers broke, files were lost I had to spend a lot of money on getting an expert to recover the lost files it just went on, and on Q What inspired you to write this series A I got fired from my first publisher I started by thinking, I d write like Nora Roberts, but the problem is, Nora Roberts writes like Nora Roberts already So, after I was fired, I had to reinvent myself Then after two weeks of thinking, I was out of the job I love and would maybe never get to do again, I tried writing some romantic suspense All of a sudden, there was this huge presence in my head, and he was like, My name is Wroth Which made no sense Then, there were all these people in my head, and I have no explanation for why they chose me, but, here we are Q When are we getting Adrian and Eddie from the Fallen Angels series back A So, in the last book of the Fallen Angels series they were sent off, by Lassiter, and I keep thinking, they re going to show up I ve been waiting for them But I think it s going to be in The Sinner Q Is the Fallen Angels series complete Is there any chance they ll be in the BDB series A Yes, they ll definitely be in the BDB world once Adrian and Eddie come Q At the end of The Savior, we saw JM and Zsadist eating the apple is it important that they shared the apple with Nalla A Yes, that is definitely significant, and also a Keep Reading Q There is a balance in the BDB world What does Lassiter have to give up to save Sarah A The true answer to that is, Lassiter ain t giving up sh t You know how the SV was all, There must be balance And all that sh t, but Lassiter doesn t give a sh t He wears leopard print tights, FFS general nods and agreement from everyone present Q On the back of Phury s neck, there s a symbol What does it look like A I don t think I can describe, and I don t have the talent necessary to draw it Maybe I ll have to get someone artistic to draw it Q Does Devina show up in the next book Devina was originally in the Fallen Angels series A Yes, Devina definitely shows up in The Sinner We know that the Omega has to end We know that Butch is the Dhestroyer are not ready for this she falls in love with Butch Yes, that s a big reveal, but I want to make it worth your time to come to this sh t Q There s images of the Old Language, but what does it sound like A Hmmmm That would be interesting I d like to do that for people who are interested in hearing it, but that s going to take some time Q I read Prisoner of Night, and I don t understand Do the BDB not know the others at the penal colony exist A The reason I want to write books like Dearest Ivy and Prisoner of Night is so I can focus the world I can t fit it all in the BDB books, so I m happy to write those e books so I can write details outside of the larger BDB books But, that means that sometimes, the timeline seems disjointed, or like things don t fit the bigger world Q Who is talking to Jane and Hannah on the other side of the Ouija board A It was the Scribe Virgin Q Is Jose de la Cruz Butch s police partner a wolfen A No, he s just a regular guy, a good Catholic boy But I d like to see him back in the BDB world Wouldn t you love to see what he thinks of it Q Have you been approached for a movie or TV Would you have control over casting A I get approached for movies and specials But, the writing is it for me So, as long as I could keep doing the books and the characters, I would do it Q Will we ever get of Butch and Manny s dad A In The Sinner, we will see of Butch, Manny, and Jo Early s father, Robert Brook, the douche Q Will JM ever find out that he was Darius A The Scribe Virgin had an agreement with Darius, that he gave a token of conscience Even though Lassiter is now in charge, the magic that rules the agreements is still in force And, that knowledge would destabilize the entire BDB world So, no, I don t think so Q When the Omega was speaking to Butch, and he says, Find your family was he talking about Manny and Jo A I don t think he was talking about Jo, Manny, and Robert Brook He was trying to get Butch to come over to the dark side, like Darth Vader to Luke in Star Wars Q Would you ever consider writing Darius backstory A I would, but you have to realize, that would only be for fans that are really invested in the world It wouldn t appeal to new readers So, yes, I d like to but I m not sure if I ll get to Q Will we see of Assail s cousins A Yes, I love those ghost pepper eating Q I m confused because Phury was asking if someone could imagine Cormia abandoning her child, if she had one But, didn t we see them have Ahgony, and Zsadist showed up and sang for the baby A Yeah, but that was a flash forward about five years That question would be asked before they had Aghony The time line just hasn t caught up yet Q I cheered out loud when Sarah knew sign language When Butch was inducted, his name was Dehstroyer on the wall in the BDB cavern But when JM was inducted, his name, Tehrror, was not on the wall.A I think the thing to remember is that the BDB is evolving When Butch was inducted, that was a million years ago And, even though Dehstroyer isn t Butch s name, that he uses, that was what they did at the time They used the warrior name But now, they ve changed, and JM is also on the wall as Darius So, it seems like they used JM because that s who he is Q Was the raid on the Sanctuary 35 years ago or 75 years ago It appears in different books as 35 or 75 years A That was a copy editing error There are different places we could go after The Sinner, so, maybe there needs to be a past cannon, like the Insider s Guide, so we could clarify this stuff Things like, the relationship between Darius and Beth s mom But, it would be for hardcore readers, and they d have to understand that that doesn t end well But, yes, it was 75 years ago, not 35 Q With Sarah s background in immunology, could she solve the disease killing the Chosen A Yeah, I think that s a distinct possibility And maybe she could solve the blood issue, the one that Havers was never able to solve Q What s the hierarchy of the deities A Devina, Lassiter, SV, and the Omega Two good, two bad The question for me, since I think the Creator prefers balance, is what role is the Creator playing in the demise of the Omega With the SV out of it, will he have a hand in the exit of the Omega What s interesting to me, is that, at the end of the FA series, Devina was down and out She s smart And, she s had time to plan Because remember, time isn t the same for the deities It s going to be interesting to watch Q Do you know how the penal colony is going to be introduced A There s going to be another BDB Legacy book, called The Jackal It will feature Rhage s half brother and the penal colony, and will be out in August 2020 Q This question was hard to hear, but it sounded like they were asking why JR listens to rap vs other types of music A The music helps me see the books and the scenes I m a runner, and I love rap, and it really helps me focus Q Do we see Nate or any of the others in future books A Nate, Markcus, and Luchas all get books Q Why couldn t Nate tell that Lassiter s not a vampire Is there another connection we don t know about A Yes, and Keep Reading Q We get references to a lot of the fathers of the Brothers Why don t we hear about the warriors moms A One of the hard things is that the world is so large, it s challenging to tailor the stories and keep the books tight and focused I want to keep the focus back on the couple, so it s not so sprawling But that also means that other details get sacrificed Q Why did Devina leave those glowing footprints A The reason why she leaves the footprints, because as Throe gets sucked down into the hole, he gets stripped of all of his energy Devina needs to follow a trail up So what was glowing, and then faded, was the residue of the trail she followed up the hole Q With the scene with the apple, did you plan that it for it all to come full circle this references the original scene when Zsadist shares an apple with JM when he s new to the Brotherhood compound and then the newest scene in The Savior, where they offer the apple to Nalla A There have been several scenes and details that I didn t understand the importance of The damn coffins in the garage I mean, there s three John Deeres and some fertilizer and a stack of % coffins Vishous kept talking about the chained dogs That moment when Zsadist was on the bus, and pared that apple What I know to be true, is that if something keeps showing up, it must be important As I was getting ready to outline The Savior, I saw JM with a black dagger, peal that apple And it was crystal clear I don t like profound moments, I get tetchy at tender moments So, I m watching him pealing this apple, and I m like, what s he doing And then I realized, no, what s important is who is he giving it to Q When Vishous got scratched, and realized that the water helps that Why Is that important for later A I don t know Q I don t like the ebooks I prefer a book in my hand Is there any chance of a collection of those e books A The thing I m very cognizant of is the pricing of the books But, once I write the book, the rest is up to the publisher I d like to get things into the hands of the readers, but hard cover books gets expensive So, the e books lets me get the stories into the hands of the reader at a lower cost But, Simon Schuster is aware that people would love to have a compendium of those e books and they re working with me to make that happen Q Will there be firefighters A We re trying to fit it into the schedule, and we re hoping to announce something soon, perhaps for 2020 Q Xhex said that JM s grid is similar to Darius What does she think about that A There was a part where I felt like she was coaching JM, and I thought he was going to get it, but no, she didn t get him there Q I m confused by the names like Xhex, and s Ex I never know how to pronounce them, unless I hear you say them A Yeah, I think we need a pronunciation guide Q I love that the Brothers aren t perfect Are you ever going to stop writing them A Have you ever known a man that was perfect And, one of the things I was worried about was, what if they stop talking to me So, as long as they keep talking, I ll keep writing Q Who will be the first trainee to be inducted in the Brotherhood A That s a Keep Reading, because I don t know yet We re going to find out together Q Are the diamonds Lassiter gave to Mary and Sarah significant A Remember when Lassiter gave the diamonds to Mary, and he said a mother s tears are precious He has the ability to turn tears into diamonds Diamonds are forever, so the diamonds he gave to Sarah were a promise that she would live forever Q When will we get the hardcovers for the first books re released A I get a lot of people who ask that The thing is, there s a certain threshold that a book has to pass, in sales, for the publisher to consider re releasing a hardcover book All folks can do is keep asking And, I ll keep telling them folks are asking Q Pre trans are able to go out in the light Do the kids go to school A Not a traditional school You have to think about how kids were educated in the 1800s There s some things about the BDB world that haven t evolved So, they don t attend schools Q Is Fritz getting a book A No, that just wouldn t be interesting Q I want Lassiter to have his own, whole book Not just pieces of his story in other books A He does get a book, but it s going to be awhile Q Does your mom read your books And if so, which is her favorite book A I want you to know, my mom has never had biblical knowledge of a man I showed up in her mailbox but she loves the first one, she liked Dark Lover Q Have you ever considered posters, with models So we can really see what the Brothers look like A I have an idea I m thinking of commissioning a series of illustrations, of what the Brothers look like Q This is another question that was difficult to discern, but it seemed that the questioner was asking why the book covers don t always match the description of the character A The publisher has control of the covers, and they can get close, but they can t get the exact match Like, hair styles, or tattoos So they do their best Q Throughout the books, there s a theme of the humans being rats without tails But, they re getting together with humans, and the Queen was human Why are they still being disrespectful of the humans A You know, a lot of people have asked that question And I just don t have a good answer FIN

    AFTER READING SPOILERS AHEAD, BE WARNED It finally came to an end The war with Omega Everything.I did not expect Devina to be Omega s undoing Honestly, I didn t So she is the new enemy in Caldwell I can t wait for it Especially her storyline, it s so good If she is back that means that Eddie and Adrian, from the Fallen Angels series, are here around the corner I liked scenes with the Scribe Virgin and Omega It was nice to see their dynamic and Omega s statement that he would never harm Vishous even though he knew that Vishous presents a great danger for him I just hope that Scribe Virgin remembers that and tries to help and or redeem Lash The scene with SV, Wrath, Beth, and LW was, also, very emotional SV even stated that she was with his Queen from the beginning And if you think about, she herself said that she does not know the future, so she couldn t know that Beth will become the Queen But she knew that her father was Darius, and she respected him a lot It is a nice homage to their friendship.It s revealed that Devina is SV s and Omega s sister, which means that she is by extent an aunt to Lash I remember Ward saying during one of the signings that they are going to become a pair Uhm, how is that going to work The main characters, Syn and Jo were interesting but at the same time, they felt like a secondary character At this point, I am sick of Butch and V and Rhage even Rhage was not featured a lot but still, he got the first book, then the second one, and then the continuation of the second one in the Legacy series, and now his half brother is getting a book with The Jackal Don t even get me started on Butch and V I just hope that their storylines are over for good On the other hand, I am okay with Qhuinn, Blay, Xcor, Layla, John Matthew, and Xhex being featured a lot Syn s talhman problem got resolved like it was nothing, which I didn t like It could be explained a little The parentage of Jo, Butch and Manny finally got explained They all have the same father and it is Robert Bluff he is dead and different mothers so that basically makes all of them half siblings and at the same time Wrath s cousins A side character who shined the brightest in this book was definitely Balthazar He is nice Regarding the next book, I honestly don t know I hope that it will be about Phury x Cormia having little Ahgony and it can be called The Primale Let s be honest, that is probably not happening For the end, I want to address just one thing I read some questions which were answered by Ward herself about Ehric and Evale sharing a mate I have read about polyamorous relationships between 2 guys and 1 girl, and to be honest, I did not have any complaints about it They are Cristina Rosales x Mark Blackthorn X Kieren from The Dark Artifices series by Cassandra Clare What is worth mentioning, none of them is related Ehric and Evale are fucking twins The idea of them sharing a mate, just because they are fucking twins is abhorrent I adore Ward, I do She is one of the most consistent authors in this genre IMO, but this I just can t fathom I hope that she or her Rice Krispies change her mind BEFORE RELEASE Jo Early Syn from the Band of BastardsBlack Dagger Brotherhood, Black Dagger Legacy Fallen Angels series reading order novella Fallen Angels book Black Dagger Legacy book Dark Lover BDB 1 Wrath Beth Pt 1 Lover Eternal BDB 2 Rhage Mary Pt 1 Lover Awakened BDB 3 Zsadist Bella Pt 1, Butch Marissa Pt 1 Lover Revealed BDB 4 Butch Marissa Pt 2, Vishous Pt 1 Lover Unbound BDB 5 Vishous Jane Pt 1 Lover Enshrined BDB 6 Phury Cormia Qhuinn Blay Pt 1 Father Mine BDB 6.5 Zsadist Bella Pt 2 The Story of Son BDB 6.6 Lover Avenged BDB 7 Rehvenge Ehlena Wrath Covet Fallen Angels 1 Lover Mine BDB 8 John Matthew Xhex Pt 1 Tohrment No One Pt 1 Crave Fallen Angels 2 Lover Unleashed BDB 9 Payne Manny Visous Jane Pt 2 Xcor Envy Fallen Angels 3 Lover Reborn BDB 10 Tohrment No One Autumn Pt 2 John Matthew Xhex Pt 2 Qhuinn Blay Pt 2 Xcor Layla Pt 1 Rapture Fallen Angels 4 Lover at Last BDB 11 Qhuinn Blay Pt 3 Xcor Layla Pt 2 Trez Selena Pt 1 Assail Sola Pt 1 Possession Fallen Angels 5 The King BDB 12 Wrath Beth Pt 2 Trez Selena Pt 2 Xcor Layla Pt 3 Assail Sola Pt 2 Immortal Fallen Angels 6 The Shadows BDB 13 iAm Catra Trez Selena Pt 3 Xcor Layla Pt 4 Assail Pt 1 Blood Kiss Legacy 1 Paradise Craeg Butch Marissa Pt 3 The Beast BDB 14 Rhage Mary Pt 2 Xcor Layla Pt 5 Assail Pt 2 Jo Pt 1 Blood Vow Legacy 2 Axe Elise Rhage Mary Pt 3 The Chosen BDB 15 Xcor Layla Pt 6 Qhuinn Blay Pt 4 Trez Tres Selena Pt 4 Vishous Pt 2 Blood Fury Legacy 3 Peyton Novo Saxton Ruhn Dearest Ivie BDB 15.5 The Thief BDB 16 Assail Sola Pt 3 Vishous Jane Pt 3, Jo Pt 2 Prisoner of Night BDB 16.5 The Savior BDB 17 Murhder Sarah JM Xhex Pt 3 Blood Truth Legacy 4 Boone Helania Syn Butch Where Winter Finds You A Caldwell Christmas BDB 17.5 Trez Tres Selena Pt 5 The Sinner BDB 18 Jo Syn

    Ok but this is literally the 4th 5th book with Butch being featured as the side story Nothing against the guy but good lord Ward He was just featured in the last Legacy book, and I know why he s being featured here but still Shuffle around a bit and give the other guys in the back some much needed page time Can we get some Phury, Tohr, Rehv up in here please Jesus And trigger happy Syn not meeting Jo before this huge missed opportunity btw makes me deeply nervous with the insta love template Ward keeps shoving in every book nowadays I iz officially scared ETA Since certain stans are feeling a certain way about my little ol review and want to jump in my comments and act a mess, let me repeat myself I don t GAF about Vutch or what team you are on Butch and V are eating up this series and I just don t care for it Periodt This isn t a survey but my opinion I want better storyline pacing and development and seeing other original BDB characters outside of V If that bothers you, keep scrolling Ward isn t paying you to act a whole fool on her behalf If you are over 50 and acting like this online, seek help Your mama didn t raise you to act this way over fictional vampires.

    Amazing book and story This is the story of Syn and Jo It s also a story of war and despair And a story of hope and love.It s hard to dive into the review and only tell you bits and pieces of the story So let me just say that this is yet one piece of the entire series that makes it so freaking addictive Syn is a soft hearted guy deep down He has not always been a good person and he recognizes his faults But when he and Jo meet, he recognizes something inside Some thing pure and wholesome that makes him look at the world differently Yearning for something he doesn t believe he deserves.I don t want to spoil this awesome read for you What I will say is that Ward has an amazing imagination and a talent beyond anyone in this genre.The Sinner is gruesome but very bad ass at the same time Full of love and appreciation for each other, these characters are just a perfect example of true friendship They truly are brothers and a wonderful blend of family.An amazing story of caring, compassion, and a deep connected love An explosive story you simply cannot miss 5 Fabulous Hot Stars copy received for review considerationfull review

    There s always something a little magical when I crack open a new book in JR Ward s Black Dagger Brotherhood series Recently we ve been blessed with extra little peeks into Caldwell and the BDB with the Legacy books and a sweet bonus book at Christmas But there s nothing better than 500 pages of solid BDB time.Anyone that s stayed current knows that The Sinner is the book where the war with the Omega and the Lessening Society comes to a head It s also brings to the forefront one of the Band of Bastards, Syn, and a character that s been on the periphery for quite a while, Jo Early Jo s family history has been the source of endless conversations between BDB fans and the payoff in The Sinner for them is one of the things that I loved about the book We also know that Butch The Dhestroyer is the key to taking down the Omega And, in case you re thinking the title is self explanatory, you ll find that it s much bigger than one character, with a handful of people taking center stage, making the book for me an Urban Fantasy novel rather than pure paranormal romance which I ve always loved about this series Butch s story arc has been racing towards its end for a while He s been around a lot lately, featuring prominently in a couple of the Legacy books He s my favorite character, so no complaints from me I loved his banter with V and, importantly, how easy it was for him to express how much he loves his BFF That really stood out in The Sinner because Butch, who knows he s vital to destroying the Omega, is in the dark on how his confrontation with the with the Scribe Virgin s evil twin will play out I loved seeing him so emotionally vulnerable as it s such a contradiction when compared with his strong, warrior persona.Jo Early barged right in and became my favorite female character It s so weird when we consider that chronologically Jo is just a few years younger than Beth With their shared background given away at birth, journalism, isolation from most people you d think they d be so similar But Ward introduced us to Beth over 15 years ago and, naturally, she s a representation of that time Since then, women have really risen up and confronted the misogyny that we face day to day Jo is written with that in mind, in a subtle way, leaving me cheering for her on every time she took a male to task She s strong, funny, and sure of herself I loved everything about her Then, we have Syn We last saw him in Blood Truth and he scared the bejesus out of lots of people I didn t find him as scary in The Sinner, which is good because he s meant to be the romantic hero We get a brief look into his formative years compared to others like Xcor and Zsadist whose backstory filled the pages of their books , and some understanding of who Syn is While Jo was wonderfully written, Syn felt a little underdeveloped for me There are things about him that didn t feel fully explained, which left me with questions That said, I loved his romance with Jo and how his love for her made him take a hard look at how he was living his life Sharing the pages of The Sinner are two other characters the woman who lured Throe into the book in The Savior I won t give her name in case you don t know and Mr F, a newly inducted Lesser Surprisingly, Mr F s POV stands out as a unique voice compared to the other Lessers we ve heard from in the past He shows readers what it s like to be a new inductee, unsure of his role after the abusive initiation ceremony I thought that was a brilliant way to end wrap up the Lessers role in the series As for the woman , she s a welcome new adversary, bringing a touch of humanity and vulnerability to her evilness As for the overall story it s a welcome addition to the series and a turning point The romance arc was much sweeter than I expected and totally realistic in the BDB world quick bonding, etc There s an incredibly slow build up of the overall plot which I think is Ward s signature but it doesn t work as well in The Sinner compared to other books in the series There were parts of the story that dragged and while I didn t skip over anything, it frequently took me out of the book Questions we ve all had for a while are answered without too much fanfare and, the like many of the recent books in the series, the ending is explosive and, for me, quite surprising I loved getting to know the Band of Bastards a little and I m definitely stoked to see where the series goes from here.Thank you to Gallery Books for an advanced copy in exchange for honest feedback.

    I just finished The Sinner and I found it to be a fresh yet an incredibly nostalgic throwback to the writing and feel of the very first books of the Black Dagger Brotherhood books I am finding it almost an impossibility to write a spoiler free review and still being able to covey just how much I know fans are going to love this.So, a few bullets points will be shared instead Butch V Perfection with a few tears.Syn Jo a slow burn with an unexpected innocence.An alliance that confuses and amazes.A glimpse at love.Out with the old and in with the new I used a ton of post it notes to mark pages and highlight quotes, but after I went back and read the passages well, guys I would never rob anyone of the pleasure of experiencing The Sinner for the first time I will end in saying I am in love with this series than ever before and I can t wait to see what comes next in the BDB world A new dawn is coming and I am ready for it.5 STARS TanjaReleases March 24th ARC provided by the publisher Follow me on Twitter Facebook Pinterest BookBabblers Instagram

    3 5 OK I didn t hate this book but I still haven t received make up sex for the last two bombsBDB is somewhat on the path to recovery, hopefully This would have been a 4 star rating but I can t excuse the final scene with Butch and Vishous Words and phrases that need to be retired Hello Just stop It s not a good look Well what do you know this was over used in Blood Truth and it s even annoying now R8 Just say your car after it s established that Butch is driving V s car Further, why is Butch driving V s car He has at least 2 of his own And what happened to the Escalade Fritz finally couldn t get all the cum stains out We get JRW loves cars but I mean when does it stop Spoilers below, I m not hiding my review First off, a message to every single reader that continues to complain about Butch and Vishous claiming the storyline in every book 1 That is not true Neither of them were in The Savior but for V written as an unprovoked asshole for like four sentences And Butch was referred to as the stocky one next to V 2 Butch had a limited role in Blood Truth But let s not forget he s in charge of the Training Program and Black Dagger Legacy books are completely focused on the trainees.3 In The Sinner, the newest book, in this lukewarm version of BDB thanks a bunch Gallery Books , Butch and Vishous are maybe 30% of the storyline The rest of the book is 50% Syn Jo 14% the Omega 5% Devina and, 1% the Dhestroyer Prophecy manifested So why are Butch and V part of the subplot Well this book was supposed to be DEHSTROYER PROPHECY MANIFESTED Butch is the DHESTROYER Vishous is Butch s healer Remember Light and Dark Savior and Sinner Go back and reread Lover Revealed This wasn t just another Butch and Vishous book And don t worry if you hate them, they won t be around for a while, if ever again JRW writes what the majority wants and there be a lot of V haters out there This should have been Butch s book or better yet, this should have been the 900 page BDB book Don t try and tell me, JRW, it is the price point Nopers many books are that long and the price stays the same And all your loyal readers that are still following through the molasses of vague romances and ghostwritten submissions would all pay for a brick Readers have been waiting 10 years for this showdown between Butch and the Omega We have been waiting at least 5 years for Jo to come around and finally learn how she, Butch, and Manny are all related All of it fell flat There was no tension, besides Vishous being told to take a seat and drink orange juice The Fallen Angels BDB crossover has been teased for 6 years Devina does show up But why Here s what s crackin with this book First and foremost this was a missed opportunity of magnanimous proportions At least it reads like JRW actually wrote the book and gave the ghostwriters some time off But honestly, the readers deserved way better This was a series Each book built upon the next Everything was interconnected Now we are in the generation of standalone editions They fit with the series but, meh, you don t have to be a real fan to know what s going I love info dumps for the new readers Syn and Jo Was this insta love It was the slowest one if it was but who cares This is PARANORMAL ROMANCE Mating bonds are a trope That s why they are insta loves and why I love them Had this been a true insta love we would have had way development between them Remember the OG BDB days when couples were really fleshed out in one book It s because they got together fast Syn and Jo spend ALOT of time doing the same things over and over Run from the police Eat Have vague random sex Keep secrets It was tedious They don t even bond for real until she transitions which was a hot mess She goes full on change in the middle of the street Then Syn fucks her in the back of the mobile clinic while Manny drives Also Did we need an almost verbatim Twilight scene Say it Vampire I was waiting for Syn to sparkle.Jo This bitch doesn t find out she s a half vamp until page 380 500 She doesn t transition until page 450 500 Syn Ok here we go again The Curious Case of Murhder, this time it s Syn JRW kept telling the fans how she needed a trigger warning for this book Syn had such a horrible life and it was awful to write Really Did you accidentally delete that whole part of the story and forget Just like the timeline is forgotten and Lyft s are a thing even though it s 2011 in BDB land Ok so yeah Syn s tiny flashbacks were weak We were told his backstory was worse than Z and Vishous Nope It s like JRW chickened out AGAIN She did it with V and his kink, Murhder and his crazy, and Syn and his we dont know why his eyes glow red Syn even tried to tell V that he had a horrible father growing up All the damn stars to Vishous He straight up tells Syn Bloodletter, try again One last WTH with Syn Homeboy can t get off but as soon as Jo becomes vamp he can blow his load That s like the virgin heroine rockin her mans world the first time she has sex.Butch and Manny They ve known that they are brothers for at least two years like three They don t act like they are really friends But they are both HYPER ASS PROTECTIVE of Jo after meeting her for like five minutes Okkkkk And after all this waiting to find out who their dad is we are told he died 10 years ago WHAT Butch and Vishous Butch has this bad feeling that V is the one the Omega wants to kill so V is forced to stay on lockdown at the mansion Like he s in time out with the babies He s not even allowed to go out for the final showdown when Butch has to take on the Omega What Scribe Virgin and Omega What the hell are we even doing Now they are twins Like real brother and sister First we are told that she will die when the Omega does, wrong Then the Omega says well V is my blood and your children were never to be harmed, I m not that evil Ergo, V didn t need to be on lockdown Devina She started off good ol Devina Violent and beautiful Props for getting to Butch the way she did But at the end of the book WTF Ward The prophecy wasn t fulfilled IMO Remember that riddle we ve all had to read over and over and scratch our head about, clearly it was a red herring The Demon Queen became a soft marshmallow by the time she intervened And that stupid ending with her and Lassiter Whatever Wrath Such a cornball scene Just give the dude his eyesight back all ready SEX sex in BDB isn t the same It s vague We were given graphic sex scenes back in the day We know what each of the OG Brothers dicks looks, feels, and tastes like Now we get info about Jo s socks than what Syn is doing to her Smut is reduced to a lot of oral sex and finger banging but my definition is far explicit than the acts in the books Again, thank you Gallery Books Butch and Marissa had a perfect opportunity for a great blow job scene yet it was fade to black I know I m missing some other stuff that bugged me I was at least entertained with this book Prob had to do with Butch and V having page time Although I am pissed that JRW promised a shower scene, again nope It s so obvious Butch wants a piece of V He s constantly referring to his roommate at home and brings up V s kinks whenever he can.
