I really enjoyed this book and I'm not really sure why exactly. Kyrian had a lot to do with it - I'm a big fan of tortured (no pun intended), wounded heroes and a big part of my enjoyment of both of the first 2 Dark Hunter books has been looking back at Julian and Kyrian's history. How they ended up as they did.
My heart broke for Kyrian at his wife's betrayal and much as the first book there was so much pain - he held himself back because he feared getting hurt again.
The heroine of the story?? Well, she was OK, I guess - but for me it was all about Kyrian. Yes, this book was just as cheesy as the first - if I have to hear the words laved, nibbled and savoured I'll fricking scream (and not in a good way). I mean "he made sweet love to her with his hand" seriously??? It was like bad porn in places (not that I know what good porn is), but I stuck with it, because I wanted to see Kyrian get his happily ever after. And yes, I have already downloaded Night Embrace, it may not be the Black Dagger Brotherhood, but the Dark Hunters are all good in their own way.
