Thoughts by Leisha: Five Stars!
Blood Kiss is the first book in a new spin off series, Black Dagger Legacy, by JR Ward.
Blood Kiss reminded me of how the Black Dagger Brotherhood books started out. (Not that I’m complaining of how they are now! I wait, rather impatiently for each new book!) You get an HEA and the glimpses into the Brothers lives are wonderful! Just enough of them to get me over the hump until the next book is released!
Since Black Dagger Legacy is a spin off to JR Ward’s popular Black Dagger Brotherhood series, it is highly recommended you read the Black Dagger Brotherhood series before you start the Legacy series. And then begin this series after you read, The Shadows.
About Blood Kiss:
“Paradise, blooded daughter of the king’s First Advisor, is ready to break free from the restrictive life of an aristocratic female. Her strategy? Join the Black Dagger Brotherhood’s training center program and learn to fight for herself, think for herself…be herself. It’s a good plan, until everything goes wrong. The schooling is unfathomably difficult, the other recruits feel more like enemies than allies, and it’s very clear that the Brother in charge, Butch O’Neal, a.k.a. theDhestroyer, is having serious problems in his own life.
And that’s before she falls in love with a fellow classmate. Craeg, a common civilian, is nothing her father would ever want for her, but everything she could ask for in a male. As an act of violence threatens to tear apart the entire program, and the erotic pull between them grows irresistible, Paradise is tested in ways she never anticipated–and left wondering whether she’s strong enough to claim her own power…on the field, and off.”
