Paradise wanted to become more than to find a mate and have children. She wanted to find her real self and to do that she was going to join the Brotherhood. Though she will find herself being distracted when she starts to fall for one of her classmates.
Blood Kiss is the first book to the series Black Dagger Legacy by J.R. Ward. I really, really liked this book. One reason being the character of Paradise. I thought it was really great that there was another woman going to fight with the brotherhood. There are several but they are easily outnumbered by the guys. Paradise grew up with money but that did not have her become selfish or cruel to those around her. I liked that she was kind but she had a backbone.
The second reason I really liked this book was that Butch and Marissa were another big part of the book. I really liked Butch’s character. He was still very rough around the edges but you had to love him and how he cared. He just didn’t show it that well. I also liked he was training the new recruits with V.
So there was definitely romance within the book. For Butch and Marissa it was a rekindling of their romance. Then there was Paradise and Craeg. Craeg fought to keep his distance but that wouldn’t stop what was happening between them.
The next book will be out in December so I have a little of a wait but when it comes out I know I will be reading it.
