synopsis : Within the brotherhood, Rhage is the vampire with the strongest appetites.

I read the first book a year ago and I really enjoyed it ! The Black Dagger Brotherhood is a series about vampire warriors.

Fine. If I can’t have you, then you do the taking. Have all of me, part of me, a small piece, whatever you want. Just please, have something.


This one is about Rhage, one of these warriors. He is cursed and is forbidden to lose control over his emotions.
He meets Mary Luce, a woman who put her life on hold because she had cancer. Nowadays she is not really living, more surviving.

It was really entertaining ! Fast paced, witty and steamy, what more could we ask ?! This is the perfect summer read !
Rhage’s behavior changes the moment he meets Mary Luce. And she doesn’t make it easy for him ! Marie is so fierce and doesn’t want to be just another one night stand. A really convenient plot, but the change of behavior is really well explained, and not just for this book !

This book was a hell of a roller coaster of emotions ! Up and down, again and again and again ! I wasn’t able to imagine an happy ending for this story… and it destroyed my heart.

We got a glimpse of the next romance and I couldn’t be happier ! This one promises to be highly interesting !

I can’t remember if it was the same for the first book but in this one there’s a common plot with the third book, which is a good thing, for a series.

She smiled a little. “You are a manipulator”
“I like to think of myself more as an outcome engineer.


  • Rhage is cursed. In order to keep the beast at bay, he needs to have sex or fight. A lot. But he doesn’t feel anything anymore. That’s it, until he meets Mary who turns his world upside down !
  • Mary is stubborn. She doesn’t want to be just another girl in his life, another name to a never ending list !
    She tries her best to deal with the difficulties life is throwing at her !

4 stars

I really enjoyed it !
