I just found out that JR Ward's new book is not a Black Dagger book. I quit reading her Black Dagger books a long time ago after she killed off an h (Wellsie I think) in a book that followed.

I really liked her old series written as Jessica Bird especially the awesome book, The Billionaire Next Door. I always hoped she would go back to that series. Her new book, a contemporary, is called The Bourbon Kings and after reading the excerpt I am intrigued. Too bad it's a hardbound book so if my library doesn't get it, I might have to wait a while.

Dont know if its true, but I've heard it's more along the lines of a Family Saga rather than Romance. If so, I think I'll pass. Will wait for reviews either way.

I stopped reading the BDB series about when you did, and agree wholeheartedly about her books written as Jessica Bird. Sadly, I doubt we'll see more from her under that pseudonym. If, as CG suspects, her latest is more a Family Saga I don't think she'll be pulling me back into her rank of fans.

On Goodreads it says the book's TV/film rights have already been optioned.

I just read this book a couple of weeks ago. Spectacularly bad! Embarrassingly so, IMO. When will I learn...

The writing was so sophomoric, had no depth and I don't even know who the main characters were or what they looked like.

I did really enjoy her books as Jessica Bird, but this was so incredibly disappointing. Nothing but a giant ad for products that most people will never be able to afford.

So sorry to hear that. I am passing on this one. There are too many other books to read. Thanks so much for sharing.
