Ah yes, how sweet it is to be back with the Black Dagger Brotherhood. It was with some anticipation (understatement) that I cracked open the 489 pages I'd waited almost a year on, and it was with baited breathe that I began. Wondering exactly what direction JR Ward was going to take this 9th instalment in? Well I can tell you that with this one she does not disappoint, giving us fans exactly what we've been waiting for and then some.
Starting where LOVER MINE left off and with her usual flair (the first 4 words will have you smiling) we get; multiple POV's, evolving story lines, arse-kicking action and major injuries to most of the Brotherhood! We revisit past characters (Jose Del la Cruz) while being introduced to new ones, including (among others) the intriguing `Band of B@stards'. This group of 6 is around to stay and with them comes an endless supply of future story possibilities.
With blasts of tension, humour, romance and way erotic love scenes we witness a couple of characters fall apart, see unrequited love, get major hints of things to come, and while laughing with Rhage and Fritz in the billiards room we also worry about the future of the King. Even though our main love story here is not as dominant as in past books, I have no complaints as Ward manages to include and give us moments with each and every member of the Brotherhood mansion in one way or another. And while I ached for Qhuinn and Blay, then there was V. And oh the V. True?
As much as this is pegged as Payne and Manny's book LOVER UNLEASHED really belongs to Vishous and isn't it great (understatement) to be back in his, intricate, messed up, dirty mind.Read more ›
I listened to the last three audiobooks in the series in quick succession. Because the last two ended on cliff-hangers, I could not wait to find out what happened next!
At the conclusion of Lover Mine, Wrath and Payne were sparring and she appeared to have broken her back. This book picks up right where we left off, and The Scribe Virgin allows Wrath to bring Payne to the "other side" to the Brotherhood's mansion. There was a feeling of excitement for me while listening to this because Wrath (being blind) does not know that Payne is the twin sister of Vishous. There is anticipation as Doc Jane is summoned to examine Payne, and she takes one look at Payne's face and realizes she is looking into the face of someone with the same features as her Hellren, Vishous.
Ahhhhh, Vishous! He is one of my favourite bad boys. He figures prominently in this book because he is Payne's twin.
Doc Jane soon realizes that the damage to Payne's spine is beyond the scope of her expertise and that there is only one person that can help Payne: Manuel "Manny" Manello. But how will Doc Jane be able to persuade the doctor to come with her?
The reunion between Doc Jane and Manny is pretty emotional. Let's not forget that Manny thought that Doc Jane was dead and that he also admitted that he had feelings for her. Well, she did die but not in the way that he thinks she did. And she still lives but not in the "normal" fashion. Understandably, Manny is confused and angry with Jane.Read more ›
One suggestion, read Lover Unleashed BEFORE you start "Envy" in Ward's Fallen Angels series. The main character in Envy is not only introduced in Lover Unleashed but Envy revolves around a situation which actually originates in this book. I found Envy more difficult to get into than I would have if I had read Lover Unleashed first. Not sure why they did not reverse the order of publication but such is the publishing business.
I love how the relationships in this series don't always end happily ever after once a specific couple's book is finished. I love that their characters/relationships continue to develop and play a role in the main storyline as the series continues. It keeps the readers intrigued and it keeps the series from becoming stagnant and boring.
