WIR | Dark Lover by J R Ward (part 1)

January 6, 2014 While I'm Reading (WIR) 12

Every Monday I bring you a chance to relive a favorite book with quick glimpses at my reactions and predictions While I’m Reading (WIR).I’m listening to Dark Lover, so instead of page numbers for my reactions I have the time (as of the end of the quote). Within each sound recording is the section that resulted in the reactions below it. My reactions are copied from some of my bookmarks while reading (not all of them, because I go a little overboard). So if you just want reactions, listen. But if you’ve read it and want to know exactly what part am I at, enjoy the clips.

*I didn’t get to listen as much as I would have liked, but this is a good into to the book*

LOL! I can’t imagine any scenario where that would go over well.

Oh please! Chauvinist pig!

Ok – that I did not see coming. I predict that his daughter will be changed as an act of grief in his memory now.

About time she thought about the cops. And I get not wanting to leave the house, but call at least!

Should have seen that coming. This is how her path will cross with the vampires.

Good lord! Tell him! She’s gonna be one of those chicks I want to shake for making dumb decisions, isn’t she?

I think he’s actually a decent guy and cares about her. Or maybe that’s just hopeful thinking… Either way she should tell him.

Uh-oh! Is the throwing star going to get linked back to him? And the brotherhood will think he’s the killer? Would that matter to them?

You don’t have to decipher it, Wrath. That’s his daughter and he’s begging you to take care of her.

      Oh wow, what a paranormal romance to start with! I’m not finished yet, but it’s had it’s ups and downs for me. I think as my first encounter I would have found it cheesy at first too LOL. I do think it’s going to end up being one of those series that I have to devour though!

      I’m glad it turned out to be a win! So far I’m enjoying it 🙂 as for listening, this probably isn’t the best series to say you must listen to Audiobooks as Jim is not the best narrator by a long shot. Thankfully, he’s also far from the worst!

      I’m on the fence about Jim right now. I think I would be frustrated if I bought the book, but since I borrowed it from a friend, I’m a little more willing to overlook him and hope I’ll fall in love. We’ll see.

    It’s been a long time since I re-listen, but I remember my original reaction, while I loved the book, I though Jim left a lot to be desired..LOL
    Now, I’d would be devastated if they were to switch narrators…I LOVE HIM..LOL
    I have to comeback later and listen to the clips 🙂

      It’s great how narrators can really grow on you. I’m on the fence about Jim at the moment. I don’t dislike him, but I’m not feeling that he’s making the book yet either.
