Oh, Black Dagger Brotherhood, how I love thee. Let me count the ways.

#1) Large Hot Guys in Leather - Um, enough said.

#2) Strong, Capable Women - Every BDB story in the series features a woman who not only has effectively handled her own trials and adversities, but when faced with helping her love through his as well, she welcomes the burden. This story was no different. Marissa is shunned among her own and dissed by Butch, the human man that she likes. Yet, when he is severely injured, she doesn't think twice about staying by his side 24/7 until he is better. He is rough; she is refined. He is experienced; she is beyond virginal. She persevered through their differences to find their similarities - their common goals. I want to be like that.

#3) Exciting Stories - Each book features a different brother and his story of how he came to be one. All of them have experienced tragedy in unspeakable ways. Butch is a little different, however, He hasn't been around for hundreds of years like the others - only 37. He's not a vampire. He doesn't have any special powers or abilities. But, he does have the heart of a warrior and the desire to protect those he cares about with his life. This makes for an incredible story with great action scenes, just like the others.

#4) Friendships That Span Time - Although these guys aren't really "brothers," they may as well be. Wrath, Vishous, Rhage, Phury, Zsadist and Tohrment would sacrifice themselves in a New York minute if it meant saving one of their own. And, when Butch joins the group and starts his awesome "bromance" with Vishous, he adopts that attitude as well. He has a special relationship with V - they are the epitome of best friends. And, that makes this particular book extra good.

#5) Large, Hot Guys in Leather - I know I mentioned it once before, but it was worth mentioning again. :)
