I've got to say, after Wrath and Beth's story, this is probably my favorite book in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series so far. First, Butch has always been one of my favorite characters as his life has been full of misery and now finally he found his purpose and he can be happy. Second, it's always lovely to read about someone more powerful and privileged helping and taking in someone who needs the help. Also, the whole war thing is getting more interesting book by book and although I hate to read the lessers point of views, it's getting intense and I absolutely love it. I can't wait to read the next book in the series and see who finds their mate next. ( )

I don't know why, but for some reason, the relationship in this one fell a little flat for me. There was some emotional conflict, but not as much as in the previous books. Yeah, there's a build-up from the last three books, but it just felt like Butch and Marissa get all lovey-dovey too quickly. And then it feels like they have disagreements just for the sake of it because the resolutions should have been clear from the outset.

What I most enjoyed about this installment was learning more about the world of the vampires and the progression Butch's story. Marissa got on my nerves. I liked the work she does for domestic abuse victims, but she could be very selfish at times. Butch is obviously going through some shit, but she wants her love for him to be a magic cure-all so he can be her house-husband. When she finally realizes her error here, it's like, "Well, duh."

I really loved Zsadist in this book because the progress he's made since his installment is so clear. He communicates with the class via email, he's learned ASL, and he seems so happy. The near-lack of Phury is obvious, and I'm both looking forward to his book and dreading it. I really like the bond that the women are making with each other, and I'm also excited to finally get to V's book soon. ( )

reading this was a bit of a chore. At times, I did get sucked into the storyline, but by and large the book felt long and tedious. I didn't care about the couple in this book at all.

The dialogue and language use is wearing me thin...

I will still probably keep going. These books often help snap me out of a slump just for the pure fun sexy factor. ( )

This book should be called " POOR Mr. X" a.k.a Mr. Xavier.

Psychotic as he was, he certainly did not deserve that end.
