and what happened him, theyou realize he s not as crazy as expectedJeez, you go rogue once and slaughter a bunch of humans after they torture your girlfriend, and suddenly you re a leaperMurhder 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 questioning everything in her life and past 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 time 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 released One of my favorite black dagger brotherhood books of all time Let me start by saying that I know this book has been reviewed many times and theirs mixed reviews ,but for me it was everything I wanted murhder s book to be My review will be my thoughts and feelings only, since most reviews already told the plot I have wanted murhder to get his redemption and to be brought back into fold he was one of my faves and what he did so many years ago was nothing that any of the warriors would have do One of my favorite black dagger brotherhood books of all time Let me start by saying that I know this book has been reviewed many times and theirs mixed reviews ,but for me it was everything I wanted murhder s book to be My review will be my thoughts and feelings only, since most reviews already told the plot I have wanted murhder to get his redemption and to be brought back into fold he was one of my faves and what he did so many years ago was nothing that any of the warriors would have done and what the sympath s did to him was awful This book as with all of ward s books is a rollercoaster ride and always leaves me mentally and emotionally wiped out But this one in particular had me crying on and off alot,so many emotional moment s and with characters that always feel like family to me I love the snark and humor and the storytelling is f king stellar And even after all these years and so many books later every time one of these men of worth get their happy ending I cry like a little b tch And murhders story was no exception And every time they do the induction ceremony it still sends chills though me and I can feel the joy and love and unity of these brothers,it s deep I can t get enough of this series What a beautiful f king mind ward has, to have so many stories in her head and the ability to bring them to life Now that s a thing of beauty Until next time luv s Grief is a cold stream you acclimate toFriends, we are seventeen books into this series, there is barely anything I can possibly say that isn t spoilery But I will say that I have been reading this series since I was very young, and I look forward to a new BDB book every single year, and the Savior was no exception The basic premise of this series is that in the Black Dagger Brotherhood we follow a bunch of powerful vampires, that are in an elite group that protects humans, vampGrief is a cold stream you acclimate toFriends, we are seventeen books into this series, there is barely anything I can possibly say that isn t spoilery But I will say that I have been reading this series since I was very young, and I look forward to a new BDB book every single year, and the Savior was no exception The basic premise of this series is that in the Black Dagger Brotherhood we follow a bunch of powerful vampires, that are in an elite group that protects humans, vampires, angels, and a bunch of other paranormal entities, and they all live in this big mansion, and they all are one big family that s just saving the world And, because we are seventeen books in, each book focuses on a new member or soon to be or maybe one day possibly becoming a member , while an older member who has already had their own book has a side storyline going on as well This book focuses primarily on Murhder, who has been talked about and hinted at for so very many books leading up to this one He was kicked out of the BDB back in the day, and in this book we get to see why and what happened after he left Sadly, it was very much based on miscommunication, and I didn t love it very much The other star of this book is Sarah, who I actually really did like I won t lie, the instalove was real in this romance, but I still just really enjoyed it for some reason Plus, Sarah, who is a scientist, trying to get to the bottom of a mysterious coverup that happened many years ago, was fascinating, and I loved the mystery and watching it unfold And the side storyline going on is about John Matthew, who is sadly my least favorite brother And Xhex, who is Jon Matthews partner, is also one of my least favorite characters, and I hated how she didn t speak up in this book and let someone else take the blame for something Like, it felt really bad, and it really ensured their place as my least favorite couple in this world Also, the bandage that was placed on the situation for the easiest fix ever Felt horrible Overall, I just feel like this wasn t as strong of a book Like, almost to the point that you could completely take out this book and it wouldn t impact the storyline whatsoever, which is never a good feeling I am very excited for book eighteen, but this one wasn t even close to being one of my favorite books Also, that romantic haircut Lord, please, no, never I know this review is really vague, and I m sorry for that, but if you re looking for a PNR romance, filled with alpha vampires, a lot of romance, and a lot of sex, I totally think you should give this series a try Also, I am hoping we getof my favorite fallen angel in the next one, because the world deservesLassiter, and I also hope to seeof my favorite literary cat Blog Instagram Twitter Tumblr Youtube TwitchContent and Trigger Warnings

getting her groove back, babies Kronk must have pulled the lever because this was a fun ride.Okay, not that fun Because, yeah, 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 cough This book focuses on John Matthew and Murhder Yes, it s spelled correctly, a 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

Usually cough Trez got screwed cough This book focuses on John Matthew and Murhder Yes, it s spelled correctly, and don t act surprised There s Rhage, and Qhuinn, and Tohrment, and Vishous, and Rehvenge.and, I just need to say, JR Ward, putting 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 consonants Just stop Or, if this helps make thingsclear just stohp.Okay, that s been said And, let s face it it needed to be said.So, Murhder is the ex lover of John Matthew s mate, Xhex sigh I just pronounce this in my head like the letter X Is that right Xhex s mother is mated to John Matthew s adopted father, so I guess this makes it a step brother step sister romance Except the parents got together after the kids did, so less creepy, right It s not like a red neck family reunion slash singles mixer So, it s okay Still, the water is a little muddy.Obviously we can handle a little muddiness.Murhder has been mentioned in past books as a member of the Black Dagger Brotherhood who went crazy and got kicked out For the past 20 years he has been living in a Bed Breakfast Inn, in the attic Acting as their ghost.Um okay Everyone needs a hobby I mean, I would have picked painting or maybe spent some time in therapy, but pretending to be a ghost in a haunted hotel works too I guess.Aww, who s a cute little ghost You are Murhder is also obviously a sexy ghost vampire too because when he meets up with a human scientist chick, she is totally wanting to get into his sheet.But, their love is forbidden blah blah blahPlus, you know he s crazy and all.Anyway Lots of drama ensues.Speaking of crazy, my favorite angel, Lassiter makes his appearance in exactly the way we would expect from him Lassiter, the fallen angel had come into the roomand he was wearing gold lame on his golden body Which wouldn t exactly have been a problem, except Are those assless chaps Sarah asked, or am I seeing things wrongMan, I love that guy Also when he says, who s your daddy So awesome 4.5 Murhder Is Back Stars Murhder and SarahMurhder is back Murhder s is the only Brother to ever get

her relationship with her deceased fianc and his role in something unethical Now, she s determined to make things right with her own investigation and rescue mission.Naturally things don t go as planned JM and XhexJM and Xhex are naturally included in this installment since Xhex and Murhder were once lovers Surprisingly JM and Murhder get along fantastic which I found refreshing JM, Xhex, and Murhder all have their own interpersonal relationship dynamics with one another which I very much enjoyed JM is having some troubles, but, you ll need to read about those.I ll just say it s scary and very troublesome Between his troubles and his relationship with both Xhex and Murhder, I have a whole new appreciation for JM I just have have to say I loved the scenes between JM Murhder Throe and his ShadowsThey re back and E.V.I.L all I can say is yikes I can t say too much without giving anything away, you need to read it LassiterOur favorite fallen Angel is once again in the thick of things As always, he brings color to everything he s involved in Always a joy Final thoughts I loved everything for the most part, I was again enthralled and throughly enjoyed this installment My only disappointment was that we didn t get any updates on Jo Early or Trez Therese When I first met Murhder in previous 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 put expectations on any book but in When I first met

that I thought it would I know better than to put 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 played a big part in this instalment was John and Xhex In the past they weren t my favourite couple but I must say I loved how they fit into this storyline, and I actually fellin love with them after this book All in all, this was a great addition to the BDB series My main complaint with this book was that it did fall flat in places 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 2 unexciting could have been better starsOk first of all I didn t hate this I was just overall bored with it.Second, 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 pretty decent job in addressing all the sordid history loose strings with this character and fleshing him outI ended up liking him He was a nice combin2 unexciting could have been

honestly he could have never gotten a story and I would have been fine with it shrugs But Ward did a pretty decent job in addressing all the sordid history loose strings with this character and fleshing him outI 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 pacing It was absolute shit It dragged in parts it didn t need to, and went super fast in places that needed to be better paced 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 quick 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 span.It s nonsense Especially in a complex world like the BDB universe where there are so many outside factors that play into it Especially with a pairing where one half is human That s the biggest issue for me here Sarah being so quick to adapting to the Vampire world and wanting to stay all because she has a lonely life was a little too quick 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 is 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 please 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 littlerealism when it comes to dealing with 2 conflicting worlds species, 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 t get 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 storybelievable and have better footing is if we saw her spendingtime with Murhder before saying ILY A slow gradual progression 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 20books 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 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 That just screamed incredibly lazy to me But back to the pacing, the fact that the hero and heroine took a while to meet then jumped in so quickly with both feet with declarations and sex thatgivesyouseriouswhiplash, made the rest of the story really lag and drag for me It took me 2 weeks to finish this There was no excitement, adrenaline, sense of urgency in this story Aside from the BioMed rescue scene, which was probably the only exciting thing out of this whole story, everything else was very stale, tired, predictable and repetitive Which is rare for a BDB book The whole JM Xhex side plot especially seemed like recycled rehashed forced drama that was as obvious as Blue s Clues I m sorry but we all knew John wasn t going to die and his sudden wave of where do I belong crisis seemed old We ve already been through this drama in 2 other books with him This arc just felt very tired and unoriginal.What I did enjoy Devina s return for one which covered about 2 pages Finaaaaaaally The crazy bitch is back I m officially scared for everyone in that mansion This character is terrifying and I hope Ward doesn t handicap her capabilities I know I m going to be eating my words by saying that but yeah, I need that excitement back I m also excited and curious to see what s in store for our new post trans character Nate His situation and how he was discovered was heartbreaking I m so glad he has Sarah and Murhder now He needs that solid footing And can I just say I m relieved we have a couple who aren t moving into the damn mansion Cause I swear.Ward s really been pushing it Terrific installment Sarah was a great shellan, and I loved the fact that this one had tight pacing and read something like a thriller for the first part of it There were scenes were she was trying to figure out what was going on at BioMed, and Muhrder was trying to find the secret laboratory, and the pacing was just superb This one featured quite a few scenes with JM one of my favorites and Xhex another of my favorites and while some of the conflict was maybe less intense than it needed Terrific installment Sarah was a great shellan, and I loved the fact that this one had

it needed to be, I thought the stuff as we ramped up towards the end and something that happened near the beginning involving Throe was super It tied in Sarah and Murhder in a great way, and just made everything come together I also really liked Murhder a lotthan I thought I would based on previous books The issues with his personality were explained in a way that worked and he would up really growing on me And the scenes with Nate So great Other great notes saw a bit of Phury Boone You re quite a formal dude, and I can t remember you ever talking before, but that was a cool Easter egg Lassiter, I completely love you when you re being serious like you were here Xcor and Bal sorry I m going to fail on the spelling on this one continue to grow on me Overall this was a very strong
