As to why...the book is very well written, but, just like when I read the first book (Kiss of Midnight), I kept comparing the characters and world-building to JR Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood. Believe me, I wish I didn't. I know there are definite differences between the two series, but...I can't seem to stop the comparisons from leeching out of my brain. For example:
It was Gideon, resident computer genius and right-hand man to Lucan, the Order's venerable leader. Gideon had the compound wired tight inside and out...And there's some part of my brain wondering if 'Gideon' has a goatee and smokes...
I've come to the conclusion that reading both series at the same time just isn't working for me, but I've heard so many good things about the Midnight Breed series that I don't want to give up on it. So, I'm putting it on hold until I finally hit the wall with the BDB or the series ends (whichever comes first :) Although...I am thinking of trying to finish Kiss of Crimson over the Christmas holiday period.
So, have you ever read a series that just merges in your mind with another? And, if so, what do you do to separate them?
