Review:   Blood Fury by J. R. Ward

J. R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood books are like chocolate chip cookies – they are really good and no matter how many you have had, you always want more.

I had heard some positive buzz about the book at the time the book was published in 2016, so when I saw a deal price on this book last year I bought it and it entered my ever towering TBR list.
