~ Under the Covers
I’ve had a bit of a bumpy ride with my beloved Black Dagger Brotherhood series this year. And honestly, I wasn’t sure how I felt about the release of this book because it felt a bit too soon for me to read this HEA. How could J.R. Ward make me think it was the right thing? But I went into this book with an open mind and let it take me on a ride. And I’m happy that I did.
If you haven’t read THE SHADOWS, you may want to skip reading this review as it may be a little spoilery but I’ll try to keep it as spoiler free as possible. This is the HEA for Trez and Selena, with a twist. We’ve seen that twist coming in the past few books and I personally wasn’t on board with it. And then I kept comparing this to Tohr and I just couldn’t wrap my head around why this was happening now. But let’s put those feelings aside. It took me a while to feel like WHERE WINTER FINDS YOU hits a stride. At first it was a tad slow to get into but I think I realized that it was delivering what it was supposed to. A sweet Christmas story. It has winter charm and it may even be a little mushy feeling. It fit the HEA really well.
While this story is not without some plot holes, I think I was so happy with how I enjoyed the HEA that I overlooked those. I was also expecting this to be a novella but it was a full length book basically. It focuses on the main love story without going too much on the sidelines with extras.
I think longtime fans of the BDB will find this story delivers on the sweet romance that Trez deserves and it brings it about in a way that felt natural and right. I was happy with the end result. It is also my favorite HEA and BDB book of this year so I think I really needed that boost of love for the series. It’s left me excited to read THE SINNER. Who’s ready for more BDB?

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
