Author; J R Ward
Release Date; October 29th 2009
I think it’s pretty clear, based on the raunchy cover, that this book is NOT YA, however since I haven’t been doing many reviews lately as I haven’t been reading much YA recently (due to midterms, but also because I have been wrapped up in the phenomena that is J R Ward), I decided I would do a review on Covet, a campaign series to J R Ward’s popular Black Dagger Brotherhood series.
In the last two weeks I have read all seven of her BDB books (including the insiders guide), and when I finished I just had to read Covet. I’ve heard mixed things about this book from reviews on goodreads, but I always have to checkout a book for myself regardless of negative reviews. And boy am I glad I did. This book was very different from the BDB series however it doesn’t disappoint for its sizzling scenes, and rough-around-the-edges characters.
The plot was original, and complex, I was surprised with the ending. There is a bit of a cliffhanger, which I usually hate, but I know the wait will be worth it for the next book. The start was a bit slow, takes about 52 pages to get gripping but from then on its all cylinders blazing.
I liked the main characters. Despite Marie-Terese umm…occupation, and the rough life she has lived, I found myself relating to her character although we have nothing in common, on the surface that it. I loved Vin; he was strong and protective and disturbed, which all make for a good read. Adrian and Eddie were a hoot, and I hope there in the next one!
I definitely recommend this read to all fans of the BDB series, and anyone looking for a paranormal romance/mystery/supernatural read. FANTASTIC!
