About the Book:
The legacy of the Black Dagger Brotherhood continues in a spin-off series from the #1 New York Times bestselling author…
Paradise, blooded daughter of the king’s First Advisor, is ready to break free from the restrictive life of an aristocratic female. Her strategy? Join the Black Dagger Brotherhood’s training center program and learn to fight for herself, think for herself…be herself. It’s a good plan, until everything goes wrong. The schooling is unfathomably difficult, the other recruits feel more like enemies than allies, and it’s very clear that the Brother in charge, Butch O’Neal, a.k.a. the Dhestroyer, is having serious problems in his own life.
And that’s before she falls in love with a fellow classmate. Craeg, a common civilian, is nothing her father would ever want for her, but everything she could ask for in a male. As an act of violence threatens to tear apart the entire program, and the erotic pull between them grows irresistible, Paradise is tested in ways she never anticipated—and left wondering whether she’s strong enough to claim her own power…on the field, and off.
I have been a fan of the Black Dagger Brotherhood for a long time, and I was a bit concerned because spin-offs can be amazing or dull as paint drying.
This was ... AMAZING!!! I can see a whole new series begin created right before my eyes and I love it. JR Ward introduces us to a whole new crew in the Brotherhood's training program. Of course the one that stands out the most is Paradise, who we were introduced to in BDB. Plus, I can't forget to tell you about Craeg. I wasn't his biggest fan in the beginning, but there's more that meets the eye on this guy.
The one thing I did love is JR Ward didn't forget our guys. We get to see a few of the BDB's and I'm so thankful. Of course, you can't have the BDB Training Program with the Brothers.
Overall, this is a big 5 stars!! There's several twists in this one, and I can't wait to see what else is going to come from it.
