My favourite was Saxton and Ruhn! Saxton finally gets his very own love interest! Let me tell you Then there was Peyton and Novo. I will say that he does redeem himself eventually!
Novo, has some pretty heavy issues but when she finally knocks her walls down; she shines! JR Ward has managed to breathe life into a series I was starting to worry about!
View all 7 comments. Dec 29, Jen Davis rated it it was amazing. More focus on the romance. The main BDB books jump all over the place, from character to character, scene to scene.
It just happens between the two romances which equally carry the book. The secondary romance and I hesitate to call it that because it had equal page time was even better for me than the headlining love story.
In fact, he nearly bungles their friendship beyond repair when he confesses his feelings here and borks up a field exercise trying to play her knight in shining armor.
Still, there is something about Novo that draws him. She is tough as nails—reminds me of Xhex in a lot of ways—and she gives as good as she gets.
Of course, there is more to Novo than meets the eye. We learn all about the backstory that forced her to harden her heart, and everything about Peyton reminds her things left best forgotten.
They both think they can just indulge in something physical, but as each works through their individual and deep-rooted family issues, they realize they can finally have something more with each other.
I liked their romance well enough. This is a gentlemale of the highest order. He is crazy smart, loyal, and super-classy.
Then along comes Rhun. Rhun is in many ways the opposite of Saxton: But he has a lovely gentle heart. But together, these two are just so sweet!
They hit my happy buttons. But that was ok, because it gave us more time for the loving. The pace was fast, the sex was hot, and the ending satisfied.
Apr 05, Kat rated it it was amazing Shelves: It was pretty pitiful to see how sad Sax still is after all this time, and I was so pleased to see the joy he was able to find with Ruhn.
There were some interesting side plots going on in this one… families and humans trying to force their will on loved ones without their permission, and some really obnoxious secondary characters!

Blood Fury gives us two romances - Peyton and Novo, two trainees in the brotherhood fighting program, who start off the book more as enemies, and it takes a bit for them to move past hate sex to --oh wait, I love you.
Peyton had very intense, romantic feelings towards another trainee, Paradise, but if you have read this serie This spin-off series of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, is still BDB Peyton had very intense, romantic feelings towards another trainee, Paradise, but if you have read this series, you know she got a HEA with another male.
Peyton is still in love with her and has a hard time working with her on a daily basis. Novo is trying to prove herself as a fighter in this male dominated field, and when she gets injured, she feels like she has to prove herself even more.
The other couple, and the reason I really anticipated this book, is Saxton and Ruhn. Ruhn moved into the brotherhood compound with Bitty, and has stayed around.
As these two spend time together, they realize they have feelings for each other, something that really surprises Ruhn, as he has only had feelings for women in the past.
Ruhn has a dark, tortuous past, and that angsty torture still looms around him. He is super quiet and always down on himself.
I really enjoyed his pairing with Saxton. In lieu of a reply, Ruhn walked forward The male was aroused. Ruhn had not come here for a never-again, but rather for some more.
As the other male came to a halt with mere inches between their faces, Saxton had to smile a little. Ward splits page time pretty evenly for these two couples, and best of all, there are no other storylines to take away from these romances.
While Sax and Ruhn are fighting a land dispute, and Peyton and Novo are dealing with an injury, most of the page time is devoted to building up their romance and relationship.
V, Rhage and Wrath all make brief appearances yay! This is just a really fun addition to the series. Super sexy, a few laughs and two couples that I really enjoyed.
We even heard the distant screams of Assail down the corridor a few times. A sure sign that he is still suffering until his book comes out this spring.
Not sure about the release date though. Kerri just commented this: Nov 16, Debra added it Shelves: I ended up liking Peyton.
We knew from the start he was more than his rich, party-boy image. More watered down trainees Novo gets the same treatment Axe did in Blood Vow. Novo is a bad ass, has been since day one, but of course she has a deep dark secret.
She also has no back bone when it comes to her awful sister and mother. Peyton and Novo together? They would make good BFFs or even, if they get their act together, good partners in the field.
As far as their romance - not feeling it. Predictable, low on action, crappy editing, seems to be par for the course with the series.
But hey, thanks to the two main men being part of the glymera we were spared a lot of the ridiculous bro talk that peppers most of the BDB stories so props though there still were enough bad pop culture references.
Bitty, Rhage and Mary are there too, and of course Wrath, but the book kept a tight focus on the two main storylines. Full review to come Two complete love stories in one book!
Ward always had a lot going on her her books. Several threads that continues through several books. I absolutely loved both!
I hate the parts in this series with the Lessers. But there was a lot of getting to know you sweet and sometimes intense romance. I was happily surprised by how much I liked both Payton and Novo.
I completely fell in love with Ruhn, and I am so happy for Saxton! This was a very satisfying read that made me happy!

But Omg I want you so much, where have you been all my life? I kept waiting to see 3. I was hoping they would drag me in and make me fall for them like the previous 2 couples.
The main issue for me was I felt nothing was done to show me why these 2 belonged together. No new path was turned, no new insight was given, no new layer was shown or explored.
Together as a couple and apart as individual characters. For Novo in particular. What makes her different? Why makes her unique outside of her personal tragedy?
I felt her whole persona was built around the burden she carried around like a shroud and nothing else was given or explored. But what makes her vulnerable?
Outside of her past trauma. What makes her tick? Besides enjoying rough sex and loving to fight. There is a distinct difference between the two.
But everything was shallow beats. I still know nothing new about Novo besides her not liking emotional stuff and enjoying fighting.
And it was distracting. That sure as hell was strange to me. Yes, there are extenuating circumstances to why that happens so late but it still felt incredibly off.
I felt this character and the pairing were sitting ducks through the majority of the book where nothing happens besides one incident out in the field and they either bicker and argue or have rough awkward sex.
Since the heroine stubbornly insists on keeping up the emotional roadblocks this leads to a hurried deluge of poured out emotions in the very end.
No matter how many times it was said. Which by the way, is such a pet peeve of mine. Why do authors do this?
I really wish Ward would ease up on that. The last few chapters in her books now read more like fanfic where everyone is shitting rainbows and unicorns in expressing their endless love.
The humor was definitely there though. The writing was fine. Even the dialogue felt very deja vu. I kept fighting the urge to skim their scenes.
This was much better. I honestly wish these 2 got their own solo book in a perfect world or longer scenes that were uninterrupted. This is how you give a fan fave character a long-awaited payoff.
But did I enjoy them? So some things were rushed or skipped over to fit within the shorter page count. I was expecting that.
I would have definitely liked more sex scenes or at least one long one. And Ruhn never having a relationship with a man before seemed to not phase him at all which I personally felt was pushing it.
He seemed a little too comfortable and open about his attraction to Saxton a little quickly which was a little hard to swallow considering how he was raised in rural South with conservative civilian parents.
But given what a gentle, kind, compassionate sweetheart he is I gave this a pass. I felt this arc would have been more amazing to see play out in the BDB books and unfold slowly.
Ruhn is so wonderful and exactly what Sax deserved. I loved this character so much that he got his own bookshelf named after him.
How big and strong he is in physical build but how quiet, shy and hesitant he is about himself and how to express himself.
I found that so endearing and fucking adorable. I melted right along with Saxton. I loved the dynamic between these two, the vulnerability on both sides for different reasons.
The reaching out and giving and taking. Their dinner dates were so cute. Like I said, I could read a whole book about them and then some.
I gobbled up all their scenes and found myself wishing for more. Not amazing like I wanted it to be but it was decent. I still think this series is more successful where the recent BDB books are now floundering.
This spin-off series is more focused, tighter, cleaner and not drowning in 10 different POVs. And the fact that this focused strictly on 2 couples and balanced fairly?
I just wish Ward would stop playing it safe with the love scenes. I really hope she continues the Legacy series after the next book.
I think it would be a totally missed opportunity to end it so soon IMO. And this a totally random side note, but I really love the character names.
Even the secondary characters have cool names that always give me pause. I liked what little I learned about this new character.
Just please, no more Bodyguard tropes? You know, how it was originally supposed to be and how it was initially marketed?
And this author definitely has that kind of pull and she knows it. A small spin-off series does not need to be hardcover.
Not some lame ass "this series is too expensive for readers" excuse. As if cost was ever an issue with your other hardcover series, Ward?
View all 5 comments. Jan 10, Stumble rated it did not like it Shelves: I am so frustrated right now. But this series feels like reading the same male and female character over and over again.
Drugs, booze, women, asshole of a father, blablabla. Like, are you serious? My biggest gripe howeve Rant incoming. My biggest gripe however is with Saxton and Ruhn.
However, why does Ward make a big deal of Ruhn feeling out of place, awkward, afraid of being thrown out of the house if he as much as breathes wrong, and then not resolve it?
Why does nobody notice, other than Saxton, in passing, a few times? Why not make it a part of them getting to know each other? Ruhn has already got impeccable manners, why not teach him about when to use which fork so the guy can feel comfortable at the table?
Why is no one asking him what he would like to do for a living and then help the guy? And teach him to read!
These things drives me NUTS. Also, Saxton was the one breaking it off with Blay and Ward makes it sound like it was the other way around, which is annoying as fuck.
Wrath reads like a caricature of himself. And he is so fucking rude and full of shit all the time, these last few books especially. I liked that Manny took a front seat instead of Jane, for once.
But he does not, at all, read like that in his own book. All the characters have the same vernacular and the same kind of inner dialogue, especially the guys.
He still reads as original and the same, thank god. But its as if Ward has given up on really exploring characters and their development, which is a shame.
Jun 28, Angelika rated it liked it Shelves: Goodreads should delete this feature. Lip service resulting in sales. There are group discussions for the people who want to share their thoughts and hopes and speculations.
By far the best of the three Legacy books. The characters developed, grew within reason and proportion. The perspective given made sense and overall it was a good read.
Jan 09, Under the Covers Book Blog rated it really liked it. I received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review.
This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. Oh what a happy day when I get to crack open a J.
While I c I received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review. I picked this up one morning around Christmas time and I barely wanted to move and go be social with the family.
I gobbled this up, all starry eyed and in love. I was dying to see them clash together and it just seemed like it would make for some sizzling chemistry.
And boy, did it ever?! The development of their relationship was perfectly paced for my liking and it also felt very much in character for both of them.
The great part being that they are both dealing with some immediate personal struggles and it was those struggles that I think facilitated how they came together.
Novo is the tough chick of the group, I love that about her. I was really happy that we got to see a completely different side of her in this book.
She was a tender, young girl and the past slapped her around pretty bad. My heart immediately thawed to her and I really admired her strength even more than before.
It gave meaning to how she conducts herself now and it made it all that sweeter when she let Peyton in. Maybe he may not be the most popular guy for fans of this series but ohhhh how I love him.
But the fact he sees that and wants to make changes, that he takes criticism from his actions and turns things around I may even go as far as saying that Novo and Peyton are my favorite couple of the Legacy series so far!
This book also has a secondary HEA. Finally, Saxton gets his man. But Saxton finds happiness and I was beyond excited that this was happening.
It would feel like a settling HEA. Saxton and Ruhn are so perfect together! Ruhn really stands out as the best and most unexpected part of this book.
He was the one I had no clue what we were really going to get. And no clue how he was going to act around Saxton. I fell in love with him from the very first time we get his POV.
The things that shaped him and made him who he is. The small things that he finds joy in. Subscribe to our blog by email! Blood Fury had not one, but two romances I thoroughly enjoyed.
Novo, however, writes Peyton off as a rich, shallow playboy, normal for the aristocratic glymera. Also, it seems Peyton does nothing but moon over Paradise, another member in their training team.
Yet, when Novo is injured Peyton is the one who stays by her side and for some reason she allows it, wants his presence even.
He also realizes he needs to play things just right with her as he senses her need to keep others at a distance. I loved that he took this all into consideration while being there for her exactly when she needed him.
Their romance was hot and touching, and I loved every minute! However, a situation pairs Ruhn and Saxton together, and his heart is once again awakened.
Just what I needed after reading two underwhelming stories, and it really made Ms. A copy was kindly provided by Ballantine Books in exchange for an honest review.
View all 4 comments. Novo and Peyton find themselves grudgingly attracted to one another, neither wants anything to do with romance especially with each other.
Novo has baggage and past hurts that makes her keep Peyton at arms length, but, eventually she learns that Payton is not all fluff and has actual feelings, feelings for her that she no longer has the desire to deny.
We see a much different side to Saxton when he becomes a true bonded male and his mate is hurt Whats that saying about expectations lead to disappointment?????????
Is that the correct saying???? Peyton made me laugh, Novo made me sad, she reminded me of Xhex just a softer version.
