So, perhaps I am destined to dislike the first books in JR Ward series. I wasn't crazy about the first BDB book, but they got so much better. I'm hoping that is true for this series as well. There was really a lot of stuff going on in this book and yet at the same time it felt like pages and pages passed without anything interesting taking place. I was bored and I truly struggled to finish it. I did like Jim and that seems to be a plus as I believe the story follows him in the other books. I also was rather intrigued by Adrian and Eddie. Dog was a fun addition as well. On the flip side I didn't care at all about Vin or Marie-Terese and I didn't really feel anything between them.
