BDB Week: Favorite Brother of Mine

Posted April 11, 2018 by Under the Covers Book Blog in Reading on the Dark Side, Under the Covers / 12 Comments

It should come as no surprise if you’ve been following our blog for any length of time that we love the Black Dagger Brotherhood series by J.R. Ward.  Release weeks for this series are kind of a big deal around here and THE THIEF is out this week so we thought it was the perfect time to celebrate our love affair with the Brothers.  Because we know you are probably tired (are you, really?) of listening to us wax poetic about our favorite book boyfriends (yes, there’s always a Brother in those lists) what better way than to invite some of our old and new blogger friends to talk about their favorites?

One of the wonderful things about this series is that we’ve met and bonded with so many wonderful people that we can call friends today because of our BDB love.  So lets hear it from our guest bloggers today!


There are over 15 books in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series, but the one book that I always go back to and reread over and over is Lover Eternal, and that’s all because of my favorite brother, Rhage. He’s hands-down the hottest of the boys, an incredible fighter, and an even better lover. He’s even got a badass beast within him – literally. But my favorite thing about Rhage? His love for his shellan, Mary.

“I will not fall in love with you,” she said. “I can’t let myself. I won’t.”
“That’s all right. I’ll love you enough for the both of us.”

Rhage fell in love with Mary from the very second he heard her voice. He worships the ground she walks on, and will do anything and everything to protect her. Even his beast loves her and is a total teddy bear only for Mary. Swoon. So if you haven’t had the chance to read Lover Eternal and fall in love with the BEST of the BDB boys, what are you waiting for?

An Ode to Vishous…

Oh, Vishous, how are you delicious?

Let me count the ways…

From your diamond eyes to your gloved hand,

Your dominance in and out of the bedroom you do demand.

You drink of the Goose and may seem gruff,

But that hidden tender side of yours is more than enough.

For you are forever in my mind when I put on mascara over my sink,

You have always been my favorite brother from whom I’d love to drink.

You can make me hot chocolate any time,

For I claim you as MINE!

Guys, this character.  This freaking character! What’s not to love about a smart, cursed, broody, Alpha male with this hidden heart he reserves for the people he loves?   His mix of dominance and brilliance always has me swooning like a schoolgirl watching the varsity football team practice and then when he goes and does nice things like brings birds to his mother? I go completely gaga.  Now you’ll have to go excuse me while I go read my favorite highlighted parts of Lover Unbound.  Thanks so much for having me, ladies! XO

Why John Matthew is my favorite brother:

Watching his journey from alone human (Lover Eternal) to the warrior he is now has been a heartbreaking journey.  Even when John was a weak human he had a need to protect, to shelter, to guard others. That need has grown as he has into rules to live by. He is loyal and protective of everyone he cares about and his shellan, Xhex is so lucky to have him. He fights hard and loves harder. John Matthew went from a human victim to a warrior who protects victims.

Top 7 Reasons Why I love Wrath, The Blind King:

1) His race revered him as its King but he despised his status.

2) He’s arrogant, intense, possessive and passionate.

3) He’s a strong leader, but also a fair and revolutionary King.

4) He’s 6’9″ & 275 pounds of pure hotness.

5) He’s still a badass even with his visual impairment.

6) He looks like Jason Momoa in my head.

7) He loves peaches.
