    Guilty Pleasures by Laurell K. Hamilton (sbrew1)
    sbrew1: I love this series. Laurel K. Hamilton starts out with a heroin that gets corrupted along the way and you feel like you get corrupted right along with the character. Very erotic after you get to the third book in the series.

I really liked this book: both the action-oriented parts and the romance plot-line are well developped (it sure packs some hot&sexy scenes) and, in the end, there's quite a shocking turn of events...I didn't see that coming at all!
That said, it's just me or the story-line is similar to the one in the BDB series?! Since I only read half of the first book (Dark Lover) more than a year ago I could be wrong but now I'm really itching to pick it up again!

BTW I'm particularly looking forward to Tegan' story: he definitely caught my attention with his dark past and his I-don't-care-about-anything/anyone attitude...! ( )

Et sted mellem 3 og 4 stjerner - jeg er ikke helt sikkert.
Jeg kan godt forstå, den bliver sammenlignet med Black Dagger Brotherhood, for der er godt nok mange ligheder, men samtidig synes jeg Lara Adrian formår at skabe sin egen historie. Jeg er vild med baggrundshistorien for vampyrerne og jeg synes der er nogle spændende personer med. Desuden er Lara Adrian ikke bange for at være lidt hård ved personerne og det er klart et plus. Jeg regner bestemt med at læse videre i serien og lære lidt om de andre mænd :P ( )

DNF at 44%

Just fucking reading Black Dagger Brotherhood. That may have gone to pieces eventually, but at least it started out coherent. This makes zero sense and honestly had next to no plot.

EDIT: OH AND THEY HAD NO PERSONALITY TOO
