The first book was a challenge to get into but now I‘m up to number 14 and don‘t see myself stopping until I‘m finished

It‘s such an exciting and fun world

Here are all my tabs @Woodchuc67 .. it‘s going to be a lengthy and extremely animated #bookclub discussion, on both our parts... can‘t wait to see and hear about what passages you have tabbed. It‘s amazing to finally have you on board with the BDB series — I‘ve been waiting and wanting to be able to talk about all these amazing stories and characters for years, as you undoubtedly already know 😉

A multilayered story featuring an amazing pair of star- crossed lovers - TrezLath, the shadow and Selena, the chosen. Have your tissues handy. You‘ll be laughing at Lassiter‘s antics too! The love between Trez and his brother iAm is palpable and extremely moving. All the 🌟‘s - brilliant once again J R Ward, you made me ugly cry 3 times and moved me in too many ways to count. 🧛‍♂️🖤🗡

CoverToCoverGirl @jackilynn agreed! I can‘t begin to imagine his story though 😂 it going to take a very special female... to put up with his shenanigans! 10mo
jackilynn @CoverToCoverGirl a very special one indeed because he is 98% full shenanigans lol. Can't wait to see what she is like though. 10mo

The snow is melting but the trails that I normally walk on are still icy and snow packed in places so this will be my #audiowalk route for the next few weeks.... so good to be able to get out and do my daily morning and evening walks again! Hello #spring! ❤️

#TuneIntoNovember #day18 #Shadow The shadows in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series are a sub type of vampires,the s‘Hisbe, that can walk in daylight and have other abilities that “normal” vampires don‘t. Trez & IAm are brothers who escaped the community they were born in because when they were children their parents basically sold Trez into marriage(slavery) to the royal princess, which he has no intention of honoring. Two of my fave characters.

Found this book the other day also at Kmart for $5. It's the only one of the series they had and I was so hoping it was the 1st one. But it's the 13th... the 13th! Why do they sell the 13th but not the 1st?! Just means I got some book shopping to do now though haha got 12 books to buy!

#RockInMay #day5 #ScenesFromAnItalianRestaurant This may be an odd choice, but one of the Shadows in this story, a black vampire, runs a very successful old school Italian restaurant in Caldwell, NY. There's quite a few scenes in an Italian restaurant in this book. I wish it was real, I'd definitely eat there!

Cinfhen Leave it to you to find a nice Italian restaurant run by vampires 🙌🏻💕🍕🇮🇹😀 (edited) 3y

Day 2 of #feistyfeb

Maybe too obvious or literal as a choice for #shadows 😂

This is the next book I need to read in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. I was keeping up so well, but now I'm a couple of years/books behind. 😞

Joybishoptx It's a lot of books! 3y

#feistyfeb #day2 #shadows Had NO clue how to interpret this one, so I'm going with a book called The Shadows. Trez & IAm are brothers, they're members of a race called S'Hsibe. Called Shadows, they worked as bodyguards before running their own restaurant. Sold by his parents to the Queen of their race, Trez has spent most of his life on the run but now his heart has been taken by another & he will fight to stay free for her.

sprainedbrain My pick too! 👍 3y
