This is the 3rd in a series called Black Dagger Brotherhood. I bought all 5 available now. When I got hold of the first book, I almost didn't want to go on reading it. There's an excess of 'Hs' in this book. The hero of this particular book is Zsadist. I'm suprised he doesn't have an 'H' in his name. It was getting on my nerves, these extra 'Hs'. I would cringe every time I get to another excess of 'H'. It's all over.

But, when I tuned out the extra 'H' (how many times have I said that?) I found that the book is truly enjoyable read. I couldn't get enough of the story.

Back to our hero, Zsadist. He's broken, but he fell in love, and he tries to improve himself. Who can resist that? He's not super-handsome, but he's built. I guess there would be no point in reading romance book if there just like your everyday males with love-handles and pouchy stomach. They're always going to be rippled tummy, and in excellent, fuckable physical shape. This hero is no different. When he's finally 'improved', it's beautiful to see him caring and gentle.B

I think the last book I have read in the series in Hard Eight. I picked this one from a library sale for 10 dollars. I sat on it for half a year before listening to it. I love the series, and each book never ever failed to make me laugh. I stopped because I got too busy. It wasn't really a choice, but more like it just happened.

Sure enough, it entertained me very much. I listened to it while driving my kids to school. Pretty soon, my 9-year old got into it, I would wait for him to listen to the story. There wasn't much x-rated part, so it's alright.

I laught at Lola's antics. This is the book where Stephanie decided to stop being a bounty hunter...and what fun time I had with my son listening to her story.
