Her idea of absolute heaven is a day filled with nothing but her computer, her dog and her coffee pot and the Brothers, of course.

Now, if you've been waiting for the return to the "glory days" of the BDB, the mostly couple- centered novels of books 1-5, you are not going to be any more pleased with this newest installment. There are at least four different character arcs, but when you remember that this book was originally supposed to come as a novella, you aren't surprised with the expanded stories of formerly minor characters. After all, the story of Qhuinn & Blaylock (like John Matthew & Xhex's) has been told in little bits & large chunks in previous installments. So this book is not so much about IF they would come together, as HOW they would come together.

And it's in this that you have to tip your hat to Ward completely. Very few romantica writers have both the publishing ability to warrant a major release whose book centers around two male characters, & as rabid as the fanbase is about their "Qhuay," this becomes one of those novels that seems impossible to write & still live up to the standards she's set for us in the previous ten novels. But Ward did it by showing us a side to a character that we all thought we knew so well: Qhuinn. He's what's driven their relationship to ruins, & in the end, he's the one that can make it whole. And by the end of "Lover At Last," you see Qhuinn so completely, that if you didn't understand why an "aristocratic gentlemale" like Blay would love the "tattooed orphan with a metal fetish," you not only understood, you were in completely in love with him too.

Which explains why the graphic scenes in this book could be most classified as "love scenes." One of the big questions about "LAL" was if Ward was going to bring this book's sex scenes to the same detailed level as her previous books. And she doesn't; but if anything, the story is better for it.

I'm not going to go in to detail about what the story was about as so many other reviews have done that. I will say as a fan of this series I was really happy with how this book played out. I thought Blay & Qhuinn's story was both heart breaking and then heart warming. I felt the autor did a good job of addressing the issue of "coming out" and exploring the ways those around you effect your ability to do so or not. We all knew the Brothers would accept this but the last chapter was just beautiful & left me with tears in my eyes. I think the main complaint I hear from other fans is the way the author has been weaving other characters into the stories. I think people need to come to terms with the fact that her style has changed and she is not going back to the first five books where a couple was the total focus. I for one am alright with that. Yes there was a lot going on w/ Assail, Xcor and Trez but the book was 600 pages long. There was enough time for Qhuinn & Blay & I liked the set up for the next stories. I don't want the series to end, I want more books so I think we need to learn of these new people. She let us get glimpses of almost all of the old characters in this book & I think she will continue this. I for one can't wait for the next installment.

I feel like I have been waiting for this book forever, and I have to wonder how much my hopes and expectations played a part in how I felt reading it. There were parts of it I really enjoyed; other parts left me frustrated; still others, left me scratching my head.

Anyone who has kept up with the series knows that Blay and Qhuinn are both completely in love with each other; and both feel like a relationship is completely impossible. After all, as the book begins, Blay is in a long-term relationship with Qhuinn's cousin Saxton. And Qhuinn has just gotten Layla pregnant. Not exactly a clear path to happiness. But Layla's pregnancy is a rocky one, and surprisingly, this is what begins to clear the path to a Qhuay pairing.

I don't want to spoil too much about the book, but I'll give you some broad strokes. I'll start with what didn't work for me. The biggest problem was the nature of the conflict between our heroes. Yes, there actually were some obstacles there at the beginning. But as the book progressed, I felt like the biggest thing standing between Qhuinn and Blay were... Qhuinn and Blay. If the two of them had been honest with each other in, say, Chapter 5 or so, there would have been little need for all of the angst that followed. Blay could have --and should have-- come clean about what was happening with Sax. Just as Qhuinn should have stopped playing the martyr and copped to his real feelings. (Just so you know, I blame Blay more than Qhuinn here.) It was overly prolonged and at times, even felt contrived.

Big issue number two: all the cut-scenes. I forgot how much these drove me crazy in the earlier books. Back then, it was all Lesser POV. Now, the scenes are divvied up between Assail, Trez, and --to a lesser extent-- the Band of Bastards.

I've read every BDB book, most of them more than once and I have loved each of them. The Band of Bastards storylines have never particularly appealed to me, they feel forced, like they really have no place in the book but the author wants to expand the cast of characters and does so by shoving them in. Now in this book we have yet another storyline being wedged in that really has no place within the book with Assail and Sola. We also have heavy focus on Trez and Iam although being as they have been a presence throughout the series this storyline fits in smoothly. The other 2 do not, it's like 3 seperate novels crammed into the pages of one book. I do understand that to keep the BDB franchise going that it has to expand to include other characters but it seems the author has lost the sublety in which she has introduced characters in the past, easing them into the storylines so that they become a natural part of the story. Now they are just randomly shoved in within seperate storylines of their own and the flow is not there. Even though the Band of Bastards characters have now been in 3 books I still can't bring myself to care about their story or be interested in it, they are a nuisance to the plot. I think she would have done better off to create their own series rather than shove them into this one. All of those additional characters and subplots takes away from the core story of Qhuinn and Blay, less than half the pages are actually about these two, I would have loved to seen their story fleshed out a bit more. What story there was about Qhuinn and Blay was excellent but there was just too much filler about unrelated storylines. All in all I was pretty dissappointed with this book as a whole, I ended up having to force myself to read each page there were so many parts I just wanted to skip.Read more ›

I don't know for sure, but she did drop the possibility of more stories involving the Bastards, though not specifically if they'd have a spin-off like the Angels.

This was okay for me...BUT...
It was noted later in the story that the rest of the drums were checked and no one was in them. Don't remember who was a part of that conversation though.
