Okay, I admit it. I'm behind the curve.
I'm so far behind, I can barely *see* the curve.
But I cannot tell a lie. I started reading JR Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood series ... this weekend.
I've been hearing about the books for ages, of course. She's got fans all over the 'net. (Including my editor -- Sorry, Angie, for not listening to you sooner!) And all that positive buzz finally wore me down.
The good thing, of course, is that I've read the first three in quick succession, and can pick up Lover Revealed as soon as I want. There's something really great about reading several books in a series right in a row. Now, though, I'm almost wanting to postpone picking up the latest book because I know it will be a while before I can get the one after that.
Needless to say, I'm hooked. I loved the books, I loved the characters, I think I was brought to tears at least once in every book -- everything I'm looking for in a series to glom.
So if you're like me and haven't tried JR Ward yet, I highly recommend that you do. They're definitely books to Buy It (them) Now.
