Review and Giveaway: The Sinner by J.R. Ward

I am super stoked to be sharing my thoughts on one of my favorite author's books today. I want to thank Simon and Schuster for sending me a copy of The Sinner for review. You all are amazing!  Author J.R. Ward is one of those auto-buy authors for me, you know the ones that as a reader as soon as their books are released you are there buying your copy, yep that's how it is for me with this spectacular author. She's also an amazing author to see in person, you will laugh so hard, so if you get the chance to hear her speak about her trust me! Anyway, below is my thoughts about her newest release The Sinner. 

 The Sinner by J. R. Ward
Publisher:  Gallery Books
Published: March 24th 2020
Format: Hardcover
Series: The Black Dagger Brotherhood
Pages: 496 pages
 Syn has kept his side hustle as a mercenary a secret from the Black Dagger Brotherhood. When he takes another hit job, he not only crosses the path of the vampire race’s new enemy, but also that of a half-breed in danger of dying during her transition. Jo Early has no idea what her true nature is, and when a mysterious man appears out of the darkness, she is torn between their erotic connection and the sense that something is very wrong.

Fate anointed Butch O’Neal as the Dhestroyer, the fulfiller of the prophecy that foresees the end of the Omega. As the war with the Lessening Society comes to a head, Butch gets an unexpected ally in Syn. But can he trust the male—or is the warrior with the bad past a deadly complication?

With time running out, Jo gets swept up in the fighting and must join with Syn and the Brotherhood against true evil. In the end, will love true prevail...or was the prophecy wrong all along?

First off I want to start this review by saying a huge thanks to this author for writing this whole series, in times like we are living right now, these books are the best stories to dive into and forget everything else around you. That's exactly what I did with The Sinner. I honestly squealed like a little girl when this one arrived. Then I stopped and thought about one of my best friends and how I knew she was going to kill me as soon as she found out I had my hands on this book lol. Just kidding, she might not actually kill me but...that's the kind of passion these books kindle though. Which isn't a bad thing! That's the kind of passion these books kindle though, she had been waiting to get her hands on this story. Once you finish one you can't wait to have the next and it's hard to wait. Though I try very patiently to wait each time. 

There are so many things I want to say about this book but I'm not sure where to start, I guess I'll just start with the writing itself and go from there. It's hard to actually describe how happy this book made me, it was so full of emotion. I love that about this series as well, J.R. Ward can write books that have you laughing one minute and holding your breath the other. I will say I have found a new favorite in this story, which I didn't think would happen because Z is my fav. But I'm getting ahead of myself here, back to the best part... the writing. I really don't know how she keeps up with everything in these books, so much happens the twists and turns, not that I'm complaining one bit, but I would love to know how she keeps track. I love the style in which she does tell her stories, they grab you and don't let you go even after you finish each book. They make you want to dive right back in and re-read the whole series. It doesn't leave you! Which makes them some of my favorite books of all time. 

  Now let's talk about characters, OMG let's talk about these characters. Funny, sexy, with dark pasts, families and all that goes with them being vampires! That's just a couple of words that I can come up with and honestly I have about a dozen more.  I love these characters. Syn has become a new favorite of mine! Like I said above I wasn't sure that would happen. I love Z! He's still my all-time favorite, but Syn and Butch are up there on the list now too. J.R. Ward knows how to create characters that make you fall in love with them just as much as their true love.  Honestly, she knows how to make you want to be their love!  That's one of those things she knows how to do best. That's one of those things that keeps us all coming back for more each and every time. I know for me I can't get enough of it. 

These books, including, The Sinner plays out in your head as you're reading them, like a movie that you star in. (Again, the best part!) I loved reading this book as I knew I would. If you couldn't already tell, I love this whole series. 

Oh, I have to mention two more things real quick, then I'm going to stop rattling on about this amazing author and her books. I must mention this cover, I think it's one of my favorites. The color is just perfect with the cover model OMG. I think when I opened this book standing at my mailbox I stood there staring for a little bit longer than I meant to. Whoever that model is WOW!  Her covers are always amazing and eye-catching but they really did an amazing job this time. 

Once this book was released I made sure I purchased the audiobook,  Jim Frangione has the perfect voice for these books, making us all love them even more than we already did! I listen and follow along as I read. I love doing this. Makes it come alive even more. If you have a chance to listen and read this book, do so! 

All in all, The Sinner is one of my favorite of the Black Dagger books. I loved this book, I'm pretty sure you already know that by now! Anyway, if you haven't read any of this series, what are you waiting for, get a copy today and start. If you have, let me know below your thoughts! I love hearing from you all.
