The Black Dagger Brotherhood Series - Welcome home boys!

The UPS man was generous today and dropped off the first six books in the Black Dagger Brotherhood Series a whole day early..Yeah! I finally followed the advice of many a twitter and book blogger friend and dived into the BDB series. I also loved reading peoples reviews of Lover Mine and re-enactments and recreations of scenes from the books - if people love the series that much to use action figures to express their feelings I can't go wrong right? (check out Mandi at Smexy Books, Fiction Vixen, and Katiebabs blogs if you missed it) So before I go into book hibernation mode and go read all these books my wolfies and I wanted to show them off with a little wine and chocolate. I was wondering if you you guys have read the BDB series and what's your favorite and least favorite books. What other series would you compare these books too? Favorite and least favorite characters? Any particular books I should have kleenex for or not read in public?

Thanks for the book advice and I'll see you in a few days!!

Books 1-3 are awesome, books 4 & 5 were meh, 6 was better, and book 7 Lover Mine, is the awesome-st of 'em all. You might want to quit after Phury's or V's story, but hang in there for Lover Mine.

I've read up to Lover Unbound (I know, I know, shame on me) and so far my favorites are Lover Awakened and Dark Lover. Enjoy!

Wendy said...

Nice! Rhage's book is best ever! Enjoy!

Bella said...

Like you, I'm just now starting this series and am still on book 1. I've heard so much about Lover Mine that I'm looking forward to finally getting there too :)

Pamela in ATX said...

Hooray!!!! soak so excited for you to embark on your BDB Journey!!!! There are soooo many flavors of Brothers to choose from, I won't tell you who my favorites are except that her latest book, Lover Mine #8 is worth some of those very few dips in the storyline (coughcoughPhury'sbookcoughcough). Just, wow, the series is back on fiiiiire.
Enjoy and please share with us your thoughts as you travel along!!

My favorite was Z and Bella,then Rhage & Mary - dragon boy! I confess I didn't read Butch's story. Loved Vichous, Not a big fan of Phury's story. I had never liked Rev but I loved his bk (the most recent one) and I am reading Lover Mine right now....oh Qhuinn & Blay..........

Bookie said...

My favorite was Z's book and my least favorite was Phury's. I haven't read Lover Mine yet but I will hopefully get to it soon. These books are so addictive!

Heather (DarklyReading) said...

Thanks for all the book advice gals! These books have high expectations to live up to - I'm excited to check them out - so far Wrath seems pretty yummy 6 foot 9 and wrapped in muscle and leather - yum!

Cherry said...

I just have to share with you my favourite book in the series... which is Lover Awakened! And my favourite brother is Zhadist, of course! The series I think of as the "arch rival" of BDB is Dark Hunter and my favourite DH book is Dance With The Devil with my favourite DH, Zarek! :)

My Favorite Black Dagger Brotherhood Book Is Dark Lover. Wrath Is My Favorite Brother And That Book Was The Introduction To This Awesome Series. Right Now I Am About Half Way Through Reading Lover Unbound. This Past Saturday I Bought The Black Dagger Brotherhood An Insider's Guide So All I Have Left To get Is Lover Mine. In My Opinion I Think You Will Love This Series. The Black Dagger Brotherhood Is Like Lara Adrain's Midnight Breed Series Which I Love Just A Bit More Than This Series. I Don't Have A Least favorite Book In The Series At The Moment. Favorite Character Is Wrath ANd My Least Favorite Character Is Havers Who Is Not Really A Pivotal Character But He Just Aggravates Me. As For Needing Kleenex I Have Not Had That Problem So Far. Mind You I Have Been Know To Cry At Commercials So It's Not That I Am Not Sensitive Or That There Have Not Been Any Sad Parts To This Series So Far It Is Just That Those Parts Were not Enough To Make Me Cry. I Think You Could Read Them In Public But I Think Reading Them All Snuggled Up In Bed Is Better....^_^.

Congrats on getting the books! I love love love this series. That last one I read in this series is Lover Enshrined, but I do have Lover Avenged somewhere in one of my millions of boxes of books. haha.

I read these books in public all the time, as I can't go to work without a book to read on my breaks. The way I look at it, if someone has something to say they're going to have to try really hard, because I'm good at ignoring people while I'm immersed in a book :)

Dani from Brazil said...

Oh, how I envy you... So much happy reading to do.. *sigh*
All BDB books are great. I can't believe you haven't read them yet!!!
The first one is always special, book 2 is the one that will make you finish that Kleenex box. Book 3 has the best story and torturded hero ever. It's impossible to choose a favorite Brother.
BTW: The right picture for the series has chocolate and bacon, not chocolate and wine... =)

Melissa said...

Right now my fave story was Zadist's (Lover Awakened). Have a lot of fun reading these. Are you inspired to do a toy review as well? ;)

Missie said...

Okay Heather, now I'm jealous! I just got all these books on my Kindle, but looking at your shiny, sexy box is making me wish I got the hard copies! *sighs*

Heather (DarklyReading) said...

@Cherry -I haven't read Dark Hunter either..another series to add to the tbr

@Skyla - thx for all the BDB advice - good to know I won't being tearing up in public :D

@Jenni - yeah taking work breaks and reading - I love doing that too

Leontine said...

Oh my, that picture is the fantasy of any PNR lover!! I loved the first three books and took out the hankies for various reasons. Enjoy, have fun with the Warriors and their Shellan's.

PS: Did you already read the part in DL where Wrath's bed bounces against the wall...very hawt sexing!!

ErotRomReader (Janna) said...

Wow, nice pic! Wine, chocolate AND hot books! What more does a girl need? ;)
I'm still a BDB virgin, but maybe not for long - when I look at that pic of yours it starts to itch, lol! :D

Tricia said...

I love how the wolfies are protecting the brothers :) My favorite book was Z and Bella's and you will definitely need tissues for it!

Rebecca @ DSB said...

Have a ball Heather. I'll be very surprised if you don't love some of these books to death. I have a soft spot for Dark Lover, book one, but book three is a perennial fan favorite too.
