The brothers are back-the latest installment in J. R. Ward's sizzling #1New York Times bestselling series.
J. R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood novels have introduced readers to a "different, creative, dark, violent, and flat-out amazing" (All About Romance)world. Now, as the vampire warriors defend their race against their slayers, one male's loyalty to the Brotherhood will be tested-and his dangerous mixed blood revealed...
Rehvenge has always kept his distance from the Brotherhood-even though his sister is married to a member, for he harbors a deadly secret that could make him a huge liability in their war against the lessers. As plots within and outside of the Brotherhood threaten to reveal the truth about Rehvenge, he turns to the only source of light in his darkening world, Ehlena, a vampire untouched by the corruption that has its hold on him-and the only thing standing between him and eternal destruction.

Lover Unbound had good and OK points. I was not "in love" with Vishous and Jane's story like I was with Rhage and Zsadist's books. Vishous's background was heart breaking and I definately hate his father. The dynamic between The Scribe Virgin and Vishous was surprising, enlightening and difficult at times. Then there was the conversation with Butch about their attraction and deep friendship. I enjoyed these parts of the book and felt they continued to create a more detailed world of the Brotherhood.
Now let's get to Jane. She was strong, smart, driven; all the things I craved in a book heroine. I liked her relationship with Vishous. They were obviously meant to be together and I was all for them getting a HEA. I shed big sloppy tears over her fate even though I read other reviews and knew what was going to happen. Having said that, how it ended was just OK. It was slightly odd, but this was a paranormal book so nothing was off the table. I wasn't shocked, just thought "well that is different". As long as Vishous and Jane were happy in the end, I was fine with whatever JR Ward wrote. But I am still stuck on how you have sex with a ghost!
JR Ward did an excellent job of keeping me engaged with bits and pieces of other main characters giving more insight into their lives. That helped me continue reading when I wasn't 100% into Vishous and Jane's story. Overall it was good read and integral part of the Black Dagger Brotherbook series.
The chief attraction in the earlier books was fantastic romance, sex, and action. LEn barely delivers on the first 2 at all. We really don't care about Phury and Cormia as a couple. We're told they are attracted to each other but we don't FEEL it like we did with Wrath and Beth or Rhage and Mary.
I got more of a connection between John Matthew and Cormia and was starting to wonder if the book was going to have a major twist. There is a fair amount of action, but very little with Phury; he's off in the corner doped up.
JR attempts to portray the inner mind of an addict but why the hell this inner demon is portrayed as a 3rd rate vaudeville British actor attempting Tolkien is beyond me. I was pissed off after the first 2 PAGES of the damn book! It is ridiculous. Phury comes off as whiny, pathetic and a loser. All the other brothers from the past books are almost unrecognizable. Honestly, I'm not sure why I'm giving 2 stars except that I love the world JR created and I'm hoping the next book will be better.
So in a nutshell:
Story is great but the weaknesses, everybody being stupid, and the ailments has soured my enjoyment of this series. However, the author sure can spin a tale and make you fall in love with her characters. The question is...do you care enough to continue the series or quit especially when you know everything you complained about is only going to get worse. I just wish the author dropped everything I complained about and made her characters fallible but not stupid. So I suspect you are asking...continue or not.....yeah gonna get the next one. Gotta find out what happens next with Xhex...really love big Bad A chicks.
