V. has always been my fave. - next to Wrath, so I was very glad that his story line was not simple or predictable. J.R. Ward came up with a sophisticated, compelling, heart-breaking storyline for V. I loved the surprise element regarding V's maternal lineage - that was awesome! JRW has always had multiple storylines on the go, and she presents them very well. This makes the book more interesting and lively. I thought V's love interest (the "Doc") was very well suited to him, and they just exploded! She's sassy and brilliant and not afraid to say her piece!
All in all I enjoyed this latest offer from JRW, and can't wait for Phury's story. A bit sad that the series is coming to an end - but then there's V's sister in the wings!
p.s: Glad he and Butch have cleared the air on that "thing" they had going. That was interesting!

Book 5 in JR Wards sexy Black Dagger Brotherhood series is all about Vishous and "Doc" Jane. It's another great addition and I really enjoyed witnessing V let his guard down and fall in love. I found him to be surprisingly considerate and gentle especially for someone who's into sadomasochism. His falling for Jane is believable and makes sense as she's his intellectual equal and he respects her for it. She's also one of the few (human or Vampire) able to put Vishous in his place. Their story is erotic, suspenseful and ultimately heartbreaking, with revelations and surprises galore. I would suggest however that newbie's read this series in order, to get the full affect and intricate back story.

LOVER UNBOUND sees everyone from previous books returning and there's a lot of growth involved within the story as a whole. As usual JR has several distinct plotlines running simultaneously and a host of secondary returning characters who continue to grow and evolve.

As we begin Vishous is having dirty thoughts about his roommate. Even though he's disgusted with himself he can't seem to stop wanting what he can't have, and watching Butch all lovey-dovey with his wife Marissa is driving him crazy. Good thing he has his S &M outfitted Penthouse and a list of females eager to be bound and dominated. Its while at his `love nest' that the Scribe Virgin makes an appearance blowing his mind with some life changing news and demanding that V become `Primale' (basically he must marry a harem of chosen females and propagate the declining vampire race) Not really V's cup of tea but that's the least of his problems as that very night sees him getting shot in the chest and taken to a human hospital where he's operated on by trauma surgeon Jane Whitcomb.

I am not going to waste my time repeating what the story is about, but I will say that I stumbled onto the BDB series by accident. I have been a major fan of Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter series, and thought I would give Ward's BDB a try.

Ward's BDB is just as addictive as Kenyon's DH, with just as much intensity and complexity, providing the reader a glimpse into the amazing world that both readers have created, with characters that are not perfect by any stretch of the imagination, but nevertheless easy to love.

I was just about to read Ward's latest, Lover Unbound, when I read the comments on Amazon.com's site. I was quite alarmed by the number of really negative comments of the book. Could the quality from be so drastic from the first four books? There were come really nasty comments, so I started to read LU with great caution.

Well, I have to say after finishing the book, I am happy to say, for me, the book was very satisfying and the negative comments were unfounded. The story stayed true to Ward's BDB, and perhaps the ending is not what you might expect (or want), it was not as horrible as some of the reviewers alluded to. The story was further developed in the area of the Scribe Virgin and her world.

The reason I give it four stars and not five is because I wished Ward had given Vishous and Jane more time, Lessening Society and Omega.

Nevertheless, I look forward to seeing how Ward develops the BDB - Phury, John Matthew, Qhinn, Blay, and perhaps another meeting with Manny.

Happy reading!

I finished the book last night and I have to say that I was suprised to have enjoyed it soo much since I had read everyones comments before hand. The ending works for me because I can't think of any other way they could have been together. Who knows I'm sure down the line it's going to come in handy for something. Can't wait to read Phury's book, the set up looks good.

I never felt like the book overshadowed anything because JR Ward has always written the stories with mulitiple storylines going on and I like that better than the standard two character storyline. I think we learn a lot about V's past and that helps the reader understand why he's the way he is. I'm also glad they "resolved" the Butch/V thing.

So overall I liked the story and what we've learned so far and can't wait for the next one. I think that instead of going into the story with your own expectations of what you want to happen, just enjoy it for what it is let it be. I would also recommend reading Tino Georgiou's masterpiece--The Fates--if you haven't read it yet.
