Dark Lover  - J.R. Ward I am glad that I finally took the opportunity to read this; it's been on my recommendations list for what seems like ever, but I kept putting it off. I really wish I hadn't though. The first book in any series (or any good one anyways) has a lot of world building involved, which I know some don't like because it can sometimes take away from the plot. But in Dark Lover there was a nice balance between world building with the story of Wrath and Beth. And can I just say I love Butch and really want to see some more of Z. He is a total bad a*$ (as are all of the Brothers!) it seems but well, I've always liked the bad boys! LOL! Can't wait to get my hands on Book 2 and beyond!
