Book Review-Dark Lover by JR Ward
Pretty much a let down for me! The first half of the book was gloomy, depressing and dark, focusing on the fact that Wrath is a cold and heartless killer so there was no warmth to his relationship with Beth. She was just content to let a stranger break into her house, scare her to death and have sex with her-something that really hacks me off in a book. I hate this lack of reality in these first encounters! If some guy is breaking into my house I'm grabbing a baseball bat and calling the police, however good looking he is!!! It took so long to introduce the brothers, the only thing that kept me interested was the amusing butler. It wasn't helped by having the worst bad guy in the world-Mr X, who was like some kind of Dick Dastardly cartoon character lurking in the shadows! When you get to the later stages Butch and the brothers are much more interesting to read about and it improves a lot but still, the big showdown at the end was pretty poor on the scary ass front! I've been told that the other books in the series are much better-lets hope so!
