I love the world that J.R.Ward creates with her vampires, similar to ours, but by the third book, I felt as if something was missing. I'm not sure I like the candy-coated vampire that doesn't hunt humans. It takes out the scare factor that I love. I like not knowing if the vampire is going to kill her or make her his. However, I think that a lot of vampire romance books nowadays are going this way unfortunately, so I'll deal with it.
J.R.Ward does a great job with the pacing of the stories, making it very hard for me to put down the book I'm on. Her action scenes are great and her romance scenes are incredible, and it never really felt trashy as some romance novels I have read.
The reason why I gave it only 4 out of 5 stars is because I'm not entirely sure if something that has lived 300 years would love rap so heavily or talk the way they do. I suppose some would love the low frequencies of the music, I do enjoy a few songs myself, and many more when I was younger, but all of them? (I guess maybe if you lived over 300 years, you'd get sick of hearing classical over and over again?) And the way they talk annoyed me at some points, with their slang, but again, I suppose if you were a secret being you'd have to hide among people so you'd learn the slang also, its just no one uses the slang they do >.< I also hated their names, if you are going to be called something like Fury, don't spell it Phury. That was easily overlooked though because J.R.Ward used only the first initial most of the time, Zsadist was 'Z' and Vishous was 'V' a lot of the time so that didn't weight on me as much.
I did like the series, probably will buy the others in the future. They are fun reads and if you don't take it too seriously very enjoyable and easy reads (I can read one book in two days). I liked how she created endless antagonists and pretty much (as we saw with John Matthew) endless 'brothers' showing up one day with their birthmark so there will always be a story to write. A good series to get into with a promise of more to come.
Honestly, the only thing that bothered me with the writing was the acronyms and slang. The acronyms are in all books and I found that it disrupted my flow of reading. I had to stop at the acronym and try to figure out what it meant. After the first book I just started skipping them so I could keep my flow of reading going. It did irritate me, and that is why I rated the books four stars instead of five. I expected the acronyms in the cell phone texts, but not in their speech. And the slang, it did not fit the characters. I could accept it in the younger characters, but not in a two or three hundred year old vampire. Other than that I did enjoy the books and will continue to read them in paperback. I would recommend the books to a friend. I would also say that these books are very detailed in the sex scenes and should only be read by an adult. These books are not appropriate for youth.
