This book is a must have for any fan of the WARDen's Black Dagger Brotherhood series. She starts the book off with a brand new novella about Z, Bella and Nalla then she follows that up with dossier's of each brother she has written a book about. She shares her craft secrets with you about how each story came about. She has included reader question and answers, a section for writers, and even the original proposal she submitted.

This book is extremely well put together and a great addition to my bookshelf.

This Insider's Guide to J.R Ward's ever-growing Black Dagger Brotherhood series is a compilation of deleted scenes, Q&As, interviews, and of course the beautiful and romantic short story Father Mine.

Father Mine picks up on the story of Zsadist and Bella, who were first introduced as a couple in Lover Awakened, after the birth of their daughter Nalla. Zsadist struggles with his dark past and his confused emotions, finding it difficult to connect with his wife and daughter.

The interviews between Ward and each of her characters are very entertaining, providing a window into their thoughts and how things have changed as time in the series progresses.

Some of the content is deeply interesting, and some is just plain funny. It is exactly the kind of thing fans of the series will enjoy

This book contains a short story "Father Mine" about Zsadist and Bella. Another interesting part is the dossiers of each brother. The author tells how she created the world of the Black Dagger Brotherhood and the problems she had with each book. There is also a portion with deleted scenes and comedic excerpts from her books. It just makes me want to re-read the whole series.

Originally i had no desire to own this, it's one of those things i thought i would never enjoy after reading the novels...but i actually loved it once i picked it up and thumbed through it. i went through the entire thing the day i got it and it is absolutely fantastic! you get attached to the boys reading the books, and the things they come up with in this are so hilarious...and i really loved the short story about Bella and Zsadist - it really keeps you updated with their lives after the baby is born, very sweet.

Anybody who loves the shenanigans of the brotherhood would thoroughly enjoy this extra stuff!

This review is just for the short story, Father Mine, as I did not read the whole thing. JR Ward is one of my favorite authors. Over the last couple of years, I've discovered that I prefer character driven stories and I think JR Ward is one of the best in that aspect. Her characters are beautifully written and have so much depth that I just get sucked into the story. Zsadist has always been my favorite and reading his struggles concerning Nalla and Bella was heartbreaking. It was so uplifting to finish it and realize he will eventually be OK. If you had no intentions of getting this guide, get it just to read Father Mine.

I mainly got this for "Father Mine." Z is back on the self-pity train. Thankfully he got off it and this was a sweet story.

The rest is a good compendium of the first six books. I enjoyed the deleted scenes. Very nice collection for fans of the series.

If you're a J.R. Ward fan you must read this Insiders Guide. The novella about Z and Bella are worth it if that all you read. But delving into the minds of the Brothers, Shellans and J.R. herself are just the icing on the Vampire Cake.

This book is a great companion to the BDB series. Containing a novella of Z and Bella, as well as more informaton on the Brothers, this book is a way for new readers to familiarize themselves with the Brothers and their stories. It also shows how things came to be with the books and each storyline.
