Ravings of a Book Junkie

An avid reader, if books were sustenance I'd be fat as a hog. I mainly read dark urban fantasies, but like to mix things up book-wise, just never enough time to read all the books I want to read!

Lover Awakened (Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 3)

Lover Awakened - J.R. Ward Excellent book, imo!
