    Fantastic but rushed

    I have read all of JR Ward's books and I truly enjoy her writing style, character development, and storytelling ability. This was another great example of her work with one minor difference. The characters are supernatural and the plot is intriguing, but I felt the story was building for the first three quarters of the book and then very quickly we have a one to two chapter climax and wrap-up. I understand the idea of building intensity and interest, but this was too wham bam thank you ma'am. I felt like I got more of a bullet point ending, x character did this, y said that, z reacted in this way, and now life is coming to a partial cliffhanger ending. I wish the climax had been moved closers to the middle and fleshed out a little more. But I will read the next book and see if I get a different vibe.

    Amazing! Readers will LOVE it!

    I absolutely loved BLOOD KISS! This spin-off series of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series is just what the doctor ordered! The book is almost 400 pages, yet it was an unusually fast read. I couldn’t put it down! J.R. Ward goes back to her roots and brings us a story reminiscent of DARK LOVER. Since DARK LOVER was the first romance book I’d ever read, it was like coming home. I love the concept of a series around the warrior training program and loved getting to see some new faces. Paradise, daughter of Abalone, the King’s First Advisor was first introduced in THE KING (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #12) and had a few appearances in the last book, THE SHADOWS (#13). She was raised in the aristocracy of vampire society known as the glymera and has been greatly sheltered all her life. Paradise wants to find her own way and not be limited by the glymera’s misogynistic gender roles for females. She feels she can do that by joining the training program. It may not be the path for her, but it’s something she’s dreamed of doing. I really loved Paradise’s character. We’ve seen her polite and confidant but we don’t get to see the “real” her until BLOOD KISS. Her strength is astounding and she has a solid core of steel. She’s also loyal, kind and is an all-around badass female. I loved her. She is a brilliant character and a perfect fit for Craeg. And Craeg…*dreamy sigh* this male is amazing. He’s not from a rich family but he is strong, determined prideful and a bit stubborn. In many ways, he reminds me of Zsadist, John Matthew and Rehvenge. Craeg’s characteristics are similar to theirs but he is clearly his own character. He is also brilliantly crafted and was made for Paradise. Their romance was very steamy and I loved watching them both fall. Marissa and Butch also have a storyline in the book and it’s pretty serious. Some past and current issues are plaguing the couple and it takes a lot of strength, courage and determination in order to set things to rights. Vishous, as always, is by Butch’s side and brings his wisdom and overt sexiness to the story. Doc Jane and the rest of the medical staff have a few honorable mentions as well as Tohr and Rhage. The ladies of the mansion have a girls’ night and it is hilarious! And then there’s Lassiter who titillates and disgusts us with a few “unusual” apparel choices :) I’ll say it again, reading BLOOD KISS was like coming home again. It was so comforting and so wonderful. The entire book is amazing. I laughed several times as well as teared up at a few places and was left with feelings of peace and contentment. Readers will fall in love with this new series and be clamoring for more! Thank you J.R. Ward for bringing us all “home” again. ***I was gifted an eBook copy from the publisher via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review. All conclusions reached are my own***

    Awesome, as always!

    I buy any new book she writes as soon as possible! Wasn't sure what to expect in the Legacy series but I shouldn't have worried!

    Blood Kiss

    I love the BDB books and now the Legacy books. J. R. Ward creates an amazing world. Can’t wait to continue both series.
