    *****Many Spoilers*****

    Everything in this book is about romance and sappy love. Fast, foolish, strong and breathless, unconditional and unquestionable love.

    Of course there are some bad guys around (lessers and humans) and some bad things happen to good vampires. But all these unfortunate situations are used only to emphasize the romance. To emphasize the ways that Ruhn and Saxton as well as Peyton and Novo fall in love.

    I was wondering why Ward has decided to blend these two love stories together. Obviously she knows what she is doing, because actually these two love stories have many things in common.

    1. Both Saxton and Peyton are aristocrats

    2. Both Ruhn and Novo come from a less fortunate family. Ruhn’s family is a bit poorer than Novo’s. Both of their families are problematic for different reasons.

    3. Both Saxton and Peyton were trapped in unrequited love. They wanted people that they were in love with someone else.

    4. Both Saxton and Peyton see almost everyday the people that they used to love.

    5. Both Blay and Paradise are happily mated with Qhuinn and Craeg respectively. They don’t really think of their ex boyfriend/friend and their happiness breaks Saxton’s and Peyton’s heart nonstop.

    6. Both Saxton and Peyton have horrible inconsiderate fathers.

    7. Both Saxton and Novo are trapped in their past. Both need to let it go with some kind of ritual (

    ).

    Are Saxton, Peyton, Ruhn and Novo as I remember them from the previous books?

    NO, THEY ARE NOT!

    Do I care that Saxton, Peyton, Ruhn and Novo are not as I remember them from the previous books?

    NOT AT ALL!

    Let’s just say that the differences are the results of the characters’ personal growth or something like that. And let’s leave it at that.

    Saxton and Ruhn falling in love:

    P.S. Wrath I love you!

    Favorite Wrath’s quote:

    Hahaha. Awesome! You will understand when you get at this point in the book.

    This was supposed to be a review. Sorry, I just could not write anything more coherent.

    Oh well…Enjoy the book! It deserves it!

There wasn't a whole lot of action, which was fine with me. I hate the parts in this series with the Lessers. But there was a lot of getting to know you sweet and sometimes intense romance.

    I was happily surprised by how much I liked both Payton and Novo. I didn't particularly like either of them in the previous books. I completely fell in love with Ruhn, and I am so happy for Saxton! This was a very satisfying read that made me happy! Can't wait for what's next. Happy reading!

    This spin-off series of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, is still BDB....just with a new crew of warriors. But the veterans are still roaming the halls, and making appearances.

    Blood Fury gives us two romances - Peyton and Novo, two trainees in the brotherhood fighting program, who start off the book more as enemies, and it takes a bit for them to move past hate sex to --oh wait, I love you.

    This spin-off series of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, is still BDB....just with a new crew of warriors. But the veterans are still roaming the halls, and making appearances.

    Blood Fury gives us two romances - Peyton and Novo, two trainees in the brotherhood fighting program, who start off the book more as enemies, and it takes a bit for them to move past hate sex to --oh wait, I love you. Peyton had very intense, romantic feelings towards another trainee, Paradise, but if you have read this series, you know she got a HEA with another male. Peyton is still in love with her and has a hard time working with her on a daily basis. Novo is trying to prove herself as a fighter in this male dominated field, and when she gets injured, she feels like she has to prove herself even more. Peyton is always lurking in the background, and they start this hate/sex/lustful thing until their feelings turn much more romantic.

    The other couple, and the reason I really anticipated this book, is Saxton and Ruhn. Saxton is Wrath's solicitor, once lover of Blay, and has had a hard time moving past that break-up. Ruhn is Bitty's uncle. Readers of this series will remember Bitty, who is Rhage and Mary's adopted daughter. Ruhn moved into the brotherhood compound with Bitty, and has stayed around. He feels like he isn't doing enough to earn his keep (although the brotherhood expects nothing from him, and considers him family).

    When there is a land dispute, Saxton has to make a lot of trips out to a house to try to get some paperwork in order, and Wrath sends Ruhn as Saxton's bodyguard in case danger breaks out. As these two spend time together, they realize they have feelings for each other, something that really surprises Ruhn, as he has only had feelings for women in the past. Ruhn has a dark, tortuous past, and that angsty torture still looms around him. He is super quiet and always down on himself. I really enjoyed his pairing with Saxton.

    Ward splits page time pretty evenly for these two couples, and best of all, there are no other storylines to take away from these romances. While Sax and Ruhn are fighting a land dispute, and Peyton and Novo are dealing with an injury, most of the page time is devoted to building up their romance and relationship. V, Rhage and Wrath all make brief appearances (yay!) but no other distractions take away from the two HEAs.

    This is just a really fun addition to the series. Super sexy, a few laughs and two couples that I really enjoyed. We even heard the distant screams of Assail down the corridor a few times. A sure sign that he is still suffering until his book comes out this spring.

    Oh what a happy day when I get to crack open a J.R. Ward book and get lost in the world she's created.  Honestly, it's a magical experience.  So as you can imagine I was more than excited to start reading BLOOD FURY but at the same time, I was a bit scared because the previous Ward book (BDB not BDL) left a little sour taste in my mouth.

    While I can't say that BLOOD FURY addresses any of my reservations about what happened in THE CHOSEN, it delivered a solid page-turning story that I couldn't help but be consumed by.  I picked this up one morning around Christmas time and I barely wanted to move and go be social with the family.  I had to read every chance I got and even when I didn't really have a chance.  I gobbled this up, all starry eyed and in love.

    First up we get the HEA for Novo and Peyton and this is one I've been anticipating from the very beginning of this series because they are SUCH opposites.  I was dying to see them clash together and it just seemed like it would make for some sizzling chemistry.  And boy, did it ever?!  The development of their relationship was perfectly paced for my liking and it also felt very much in character for both of them.  The great part being that they are both dealing with some immediate personal struggles and it was those struggles that I think facilitated how they came together.

    Novo is the tough chick of the group, I love that about her.  I was really happy that we got to see a completely different side of her in this book.  She was a tender, young girl and the past slapped her around pretty bad.  My heart immediately thawed to her and I really admired her strength even more than before.  It gave meaning to how she conducts herself now and it made it all that sweeter when she let Peyton in.

    And then of course there's Peyton.  I adore him.  Seriously.  Maybe he may not be the most popular guy for fans of this series but ohhhh how I love him.  He's done the best he can with the hand life dealt him.  And he's made plenty of mistakes.  But the fact he sees that and wants to make changes, that he takes criticism from his actions and turns things around... well again... it made me admire him too.

    I may even go as far as saying that Novo and Peyton are my favorite couple of the Legacy series so far!

    This book also has a secondary HEA.  Finally, Saxton gets his man.  And no, I don't mean Blay, lets not get crazy here.  But Saxton finds happiness and I was beyond excited that this was happening.  But I was also  scared that it wouldn't be good enough for him.  It would feel like a settling HEA.  Rest assured, there's no settling here!  Saxton and Ruhn are so perfect together!  I mean, I won't go into much detail about Saxton because I've been a fan for a while so lets focus on the unexpected for me here, Ruhn.

    Ruhn really stands out as the best and most unexpected part of this book.  He was the one I had no clue what we were really going to get.  And no clue how he was going to act around Saxton.  I fell in love with him from the very first time we get his POV.  There's a tenderness and innocence about him that you can't help but be drawn in by.  At the same time, there's so many layers to him that you get to slowly peel back and uncover.  The things that shaped him and made him who he is.  The small things that he finds joy in.  Gahhhh.  Where the Brothers are always larger than life, Ruhn is that sweet real life man that's perfectly broken.  I wasn't expecting him but he was a highlight for me.

    BLOOD FURY was a perfect addition to the Legacy series and another fun, all-consuming ride through the Black Dagger Brotherhood world.  I couldn't have wished for better.

    I still really enjoyed this installment, but I have to be honest and say that this was my least favorite in this spinoff series thus far! I love Novo, I love Ruhn, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Saxton with the sum of my being, but I honestly dislike Peyton. And, like, look at the cover… he’s probably the main character of this book, even though he shares the spotlight with the three others.

    But before I even get into this review

    for miscarrying, talk of abortion, death of a child, and thoughts of suicide. The BDB world always has erotic sex scenes, violence, gore, abuse, killing, and war themes in general, but this book put a heavy emphasis on every mother’s worst fear: losing a child. I have never been pregnant, and it was still very hard for me to read. I was crying so very much while reading some of this book, so please use caution.

    This is book three in a spinoff series to

    which is publishing its sixteenth book in 2018. It’s a huge series that I love with all my heart, but I completely understand that it’s quite the task to catch up to be able to read this series.

    In the

    we follow a bunch of powerful vampires, that are in an elite group that protects humans, vampires, angels, and a bunch of other paranormal entities, and they all live in this big mansion, and they all are one big family that’s just saving the world. Well, in this series,

    , we get to see a younger generation of recruits, trying to join the elite protection force.

    Okay, so

    is Paradise and Craeg's story,

    is Axe and Elise’s story, and

    is Novo and Peyton’s story. Which leaves only Boone’s story, and he is such a man of mystery, and I’m so excited!

    Peyton is the typical rich and stuck up vampire, with royal blood running through his veins. Novo is the tough girl, who distances herself and won’t allow anyone to get through her defenses. Yet, Novo has always had a soft spot for Peyton, no matter how much she tries to ignore her feelings. Unfortunately, Peyton still believes he is in love with Paradise, but he quickly realizes he doesn’t know the first thing about loving anyone, including himself.

    Okay, so I said above that I’m not the biggest Peyton fan. He just makes everything so much harder for himself. And he makes so many insensitive jokes about suicide that honestly made me want to DNF the book every time I read one, and I’ve never felt that way about a JR Ward book ever. He also kept comparing so many girls, and borderline shaming them because of their appearances and being “too girly.” I hated being inside his head for most of this book. And obviously he gets way better the closer you get to the end of the book, but it was a long journey and it took me ten days to finish this book because of it, where normally I can’t put down any book set in this world.

    But, Lord, help me, I almost converted to liking Peyton because chapter thirty-three was so damn good. JR Ward writes the best sex scenes, I swear to God. And I honestly want a whole book just about the Keys and all the “activities” that go on in that club

    But Novo’s journey was beautiful, and heart wrenching, and completely perfect in every way. Reading her story was a joy and I give JR Ward all the credit in the world for telling this tale. Novo also had some very authentic panic attacks and anxiety representation, too, on top of seeing her deal with trauma and grief and the impact that everything had on her and everyone around her. I loved seeing her as a main protagonist.

    Novo is also dealing with the pressure of her sister, who is seemingly perfect, getting married, and wanting a very human-like ceremony that she insists Novo be a part of! Novo does make one sort of gross comment about feminism at one of these wedding events, and it’s important to state and not make excuses for what she said, but I’m just going to try to ignore it. But I love how Novo completely tears typical beauty standards to shreds in this book, and shows that being strong and surviving is one of the most beautiful things in this world. I love Novo and I can’t wait to see more of her in the BDB world.

    Okay, Saxton and Ruhn! LORD, HELP ME. Okay, first off, perfection. They are perfection. Like, they are five stars. No, six stars. No, ALL THE STARS! If you guys go back and read my previous BDB reviews, you will know I shipped Blay with Saxton very, very much. Blaylock is my favorite little cinnamon roll, and I will protect him at all costs. Also, Qhuinn is easily my least favorite brother and my least favorite character in the BDB world. Like, he almost ruined

    for me completely. But anyways, I went into this book scared that I wasn’t going to like Saxton and Ruhn together, especially with how Saxton was feeling at the start of this book. Boy, was I wrong. I love them both so much.

    Saxton and Ruhn’s story gets started when Wrath assigns Ruhn protect and look out for Saxton, while Saxton is settling a property battle for a nice vampire widow that lives next door to Blay’s parents in the country. Saxton is very openly out, where Ruhn is learning and processing that he has attraction and feelings for a man for the first time.

    Ruhn hasn’t had an easy life what so ever, and you learn all about his backstory in this book, but he is always there for his niece, Bitty, and for the rest of the brothers, too. He is so happy when Wrath asks him to be Saxton’s body guard, because he can finally feel like he is earning his keep. But things quickly progress at the country house, for the better and for the scary. I will be honest and say their relationship did feel a little instalove-y, and there wasn't that much build up to make it super believable, but I loved Saxton and Ruhn’s love story, and I can’t wait to see so much more of them.

    And I have a very strong suspicion that this won’t be the last we see on Minnie and her grandchildren, either!

    I’m almost to the point where I can just say point blank that I like these Black Dagger Legacy books more than current incarnation of the core series. Why? More focus on the romance. The main BDB books jump all over the place, from character to character, scene to scene. There have always been parts I’ve wanted to skim to get back to the romance, but with the spinoff books, it’s all romance; there’s nothing to skim.

    I’m almost to the point where I can just say point blank that I like these Black Dagger Legacy books more than current incarnation of the core series. Why? More focus on the romance. The main BDB books jump all over the place, from character to character, scene to scene. There have always been parts I’ve wanted to skim to get back to the romance, but with the spinoff books, it’s all romance; there’s nothing to skim.

    That’s not to say there’s no jumping around here… there is. It just happens between the two romances which equally carry the book. The blurb may be all about Peyton and Novo, but this is every bit as much about Saxton and Rhun, and frankly, it’s all the better for it. The secondary romance (and I hesitate to call it that because it had equal page time) was even better for me than the headlining love story.

    You probably remember Peyton as the rich, party-boy BFF to Paradise, the heroine in Blood Kiss. He wasn’t very happy about his friend’s HEA with Craeg because he thought he was in love with her. In fact, he nearly bungles their friendship beyond repair when he confesses his feelings here and borks up a field exercise trying to play her knight in shining armor. Still, there is something about Novo that draws him. She is tough as nails–reminds me of Xhex in a lot of ways–and she gives as good as she gets.

    Of course, there is more to Novo than meets the eye. We learn all about the backstory that forced her to harden her heart, and everything about Peyton reminds her things left best forgotten. They both think they can just indulge in something physical, but as each works through their individual and deep-rooted family issues, they realize they can finally have something more with each other.

    I liked their romance well enough. I still didn’t love Peyton, despite the progress he makes in his journey. But there are some super-hot moments between them and neither character dies, so that’s always a plus in a Ward book.

    I had way more investment in Saxton’s story. The poor dude was crushed when Blay dumped him and he’s still nursing a broken heart made worse by the fact that he has to see his ex living the good life, in love, every day. This is a gentlemale of the highest order. He is crazy smart, loyal, and super-classy. He’s just so sad.

    Then along comes Rhun. Admittedly, I forgot who he was for a moment, but ultimately got the reminder that he’s Bitty’s uncle who has come to live at the mansion since Rhage and Mary adopted the girl. Rhun is in many ways the opposite of Saxton: big, quiet, illiterate. But he has a lovely gentle heart. He’s never been attracted to a guy before, so his growing feelings for Saxton are confusing. But together, these two are just so sweet! They hit my happy buttons. My only complaint is that they didn’t have their own book.

    There are glimpses and shout-outs to most of the main characters in the BDB world, but it doesn’t really move any major arc. But that was ok, because it gave us more time for the loving. The pace was fast, the sex was hot, and the ending satisfied.

    Mhore please.
