The Twilight series is the series that got me back into reading BIG time but J.R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood is the series that got me into the Paranormal genre big time. No sparkily vampires here! It's best to start at the beginning of the series. Each book builds off of the book before it. Z and Bella's story is my FAVORITE one to date. Kind of a vampire "Beauty and the Beast." Check out this series! I'll leave you with my ALL TIME FAVORITE quote from this book.
“I was dead until you found me, though I breathed. I was sightless, though I could see. And then you came...and I was awakened.”
