REVIEW: Lover Eternal – A Black Dagger Brotherhood novel #2 by J.R. Ward

The Black Dagger Brotherhood series by J.R. Ward is one of my top 5 favorite series.  I really enjoy the soap opera version of badass vampires and the neat relationships they are thrown into.

J.R. Ward is brilliant and her imagination knows no bounds!  This book does the series justice.

Rhage is a brother who has been cursed by the Scribe Virgin.  If things get out of hand or his emotions go all amuck, he turns into this big dragon of a beast.  After meeting Mary, and fighting against the entire brotherhood with his decision to keep her close to his heart, he realizes that the beast within lusts after her as much as he.  They both want to claim her.  To make her theirs.

White narrowed eyes.  snarling jowls.  And the full set of fangs in its gaping mouth was right out of a fever nightmare.  Black blood ran down its chest like crude oil.  The beast lifted its muscled forelegs.  Jesus, those claws were like daggers.  made Freddie Krueger’s set of fun and games look like pipe cleaners.  But Rhage was in there.  Somewhere.

Mary is has a lot of interesting tidbits.  One in particular, she is a therapist for s suicide hotline.  This is where the character John Matthew is brought into the story.  We’ll come to him after the next book 🙂

Mary has cancer and struggling against her feelings for Rhage.  Moving into the brotherhood’s mansion, makes things a lot more interesting to say the least heh ..

Bella’s character is introduced in this book.  She is Mary’s neighbor.  When Bella realizes that John is really a pre-transitioned vampire, she contacts the brotherhood for their help.  Again .. more information after this book!

Reviews for this series can go on and on.  The books are in soap opera format.  There are many characters and relationships.  The stories branch off and give you glimpses into other scenes that are taking place alongside the main character’s.

Line of the book:

“You are a manipulator.” … “I like to think of myself more as an outcome engineer.”

This book has double thumbs up from me.

I recommend this book to ADULTS ONLY.  This second book in the Black Dagger Brotherhood is far more intense and descriptive.  Extreme violence and juicy intimate sex scenes.

Do not allow children or immature adults to read this book.  Duh, right?

~Happy reading!

Book of the day … Lover Eternal – A Black Dagger Brotherhood novel #2 by J.R. Ward

This book is about Rhage and Mary .. This is ony of my favorites out of all the “brothers” … New important characters are introduced .. and then we have Mary .. which totally rocks not only Rhage’s world but that of his family as well.

Excerpt One: From LOVER ETERNAL, and as promised for
Valentine’s Day, the scene in which Zsadist and his female, Bella, first meet.She has come to the Brotherhood’s training facility. JUST
REMEMBER… it’s Z, okay? So yeah, romance is… not exactly in the air. But an
erotic current sure is…

Bella leaned back against the wall in the corridor and
started braiding pieces of her hair, something she did when she was nervous.


She’d heard members of the Brotherhood were almost a separate species, but
she’d never thought that was true. Until now. Those two males were not just
colossal on a physical scale, they radiated dominance and aggression. Hell, they
made her brother look like an amateur in the hard-ass department and Rehvenge
was the toughest thing she’d ever come across. Continue reading
