I loved J. Ward for making this book into something exceptional and so much different from her old works. Jane is an epitome of women this day. She's strong but resilient. She deals with V with the way that leaving me gasp and shocked. I liked her spirit, though. And talking about V and Butch's relationship is very important for this review. I do think that they have some kind of passion, yet it's left vague that way because it's unlikely to happen.
Ward did it on purpose and I totally understand her. After what V has fought to be with the one he loves, he doesn't deserve this, he deserves his real happiness. I cried so hard for him, too. Ward never disappointed me, she always surprises me with her work and I adore her so much for that.

His falling for Jane is believable and makes sense as she's his intellectual equal and he respects her for it. Sh Opening Line: 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.
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.
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.
Jane is a no nonsense woman; strong, brilliant and forthright she's also head of the department and has an interest in genetics, so when Jane see's V's unusual heart and characteristic Vampire traits she's more than intrigued. Interestingly all the brothers feel V's injury and know instinctively that something is wrong. When they eventually find him the boys have to extract V from the hospital and cover up any evidence that he was ever there. This is a great scene as Phury, Rhage and Butch short out video monitors and alarms, fritz computer files and 'scrub' nurses minds.
To make things even more complicated V insists on kidnapping Jane so she can continue to care for him back at the mansion. Only allowing her to stay until V has recovered then she must be 'scrubbed' and released. Butch is sick from inhaling Lessers and after Jane witness's a healing session she assumes V and Butch are a couple. This doesn't bode well for V who keeps thinking "mine" whenever he looks at her.
Luckily he's able to perform certain acts in her dreams nice. Bella is having some complications with the pregnancy which in turn is making Zsadist a little crazy. John Mathew, Blay, Quinn and Lash continue their training and wait for 'the change.
The Lessers remain relatively quiet throughout our story until towards the end and then, wow! We also get flashbacks of Vishous in his father's war camp and discover why he got his tattoos. V's darker sexual tendencies are also explored and in a very touching scene he and Butch talk about their feelings for each other. Phury again plays a major role as we are set up brilliantly for the next book Lover Enshrined He's having some major issues with anger management and feelings towards his twin's wife which is causing him to overindulge in 'red smoke'.
Ultimately Phury sacrifices again for the good of others. This great book was a re-read for me and as you can tell a lot happens. Unfortunately I still had a hard time with the ending, it just doesn't sit right even knowing the outcome. Sigh Highly recommended for fans of the sexy yet troubled Black Dagger Brotherhood.
View all 33 comments. Vamps love. Third Person - Multiple Rating: Vishous came from a fearsome family legacy. With a tortured past, he closed his heart towards everything but eradicating the lessers. But an injury brought him to someone who made him experience something new. Jane Whitcomb was a human doctor that fixed his heart both literally and figuratively.
But being from a different world prevented them from being together especially whe Genre: But being from a different world prevented them from being together especially when he was fated for something else. Each of the Brothers in the series had something special about them that lure me in.
I like how distinctive they are and how accepting they are of each others. Theoretically Jane had operated on his heart, not his head, but he hadn't been right since he'd been on her table. What first caught my attention about V was his kinkiness - besides his special power. I also like how he had a dark past. I was hoping to get more of his kinky side but that didn't happened. There were mentions but hardly any actions of such situations.
She was his rhalman, his savior. I really like Jane as the heroine. She was strong, ambitious and won't take shit from anyone. And with strength, she still had compassion to make her likeable. Look what he had to offer Jane: I've always like how the books in the series had elaborate parallel plots.
In this one, I love the other story on John Matthew and Phury. However, I do feel their stories overshadowed V and Jane's. Lover Unbound is a story of two people overcoming their pasts and the sacrifices made for their future.
I'm not quite sure of one element in the ending, still I enjoyed this book overall. I love the little tidbits on the Scribe Virgin. It made me changed my opinion on her seeing her different side.

And he has a magic, glowing hand that can both heal people and electrocute them AND he can use it to incinerate cigarette butts into dusty oblivion. Um, okay! She swears a lot. And she smarts off to Vishous, which is a major turn on for him go figure.
So what happens when As far as romance novel heroes go, Vishous is a deviant. So what happens when a human and a vampire fall madly in love? Holy shit. But the last part completely fell apart for me sort of like one of those puking hangovers you get after a really wild night. And I hate to say it, but I was a bit underwhelmed by John Matthew this time around. And I'm glad yay! This is the story of V and Jane. Vishous has a dark side and doesn't do relationships They meet under not so great circumstances Will Jane fall under V's spell?
I know i would You will just have to read it to find out What's it spell? Too late for that, Jane I gave you a chance to have it on your terms. She's human. That's such a shocker! And here I thought she was a sheep. The idea that you might only cripple the guy makes me feel a fuck of a lot better about leaving you here. View all 65 comments. Dec 01, Gaby rated it it was amazing Shelves: Chica, lo has hecho de nuevo. Caer en desgracia era un poco como enamorarse: Y de acuerdo con su limitada experiencia, el final de las dos cosas era igual de doloroso.
Este libro J. Luego entra en el panorama Jane , encendiendo en V sus mejores partes. Es mi personaje femenino favorito so far. Eso es a lo que yo llamo tener los pantalones puestos, carajo.
Ese par, Jane y Vishous, son el uno para el otro. Ahora, hablemos de las situaciones fuertes. De esas sobran en este libro.
Por primera vez en la vida estaba teniendo relaciones sexuales con alguien a quien amaba. Que por cierto, la Ward se bota con el sadomasoquismo. Y Phury, por los dioses, Phury. Sin ellas, estoy absolutamente sola. En serio, Ward tiene que controlarse con los sentimientos fuertes. View all 11 comments. It kinda pains me to only give this 3 stars. Maybe 3. I so loved the other books that I have read so far so maybe my expectations were way too high. Butch is still my favourite character and as I had just finished reading his story, maybe I should have taken a little break and read something in between.
I know, I need to get over myself on this! What to read next? That is the question! Feb 04, Daisiemae rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Recommended to Daisiemae by: My peeps here on Goodreads: From what I understand, this book created a lot of controversy I have read several reviews, and have seen posts crying out for JR Ward to re-write this book.
That Vishous was cheated out of a mate I am not one of those people. I really loved this book. Yes, it is not the easy happily ever after that we are used to, but dang Plus, I know that everything happens for a purpose with this series I am really trying not to spoil anything Honestly, I really never cared for Vishous before.
Personally, after reading this book I found that Vishous is probably the most tortured, misunderstood brother to date. The things he endured and the scars he bares because the the cruelty that was unleashed on him was unbearable Jane was perfect for him.
She is smart, sarcastic and sees Vishous as he is. I really loved them together, and once again the character development was well thought out.
They both changed, they grew together and I loved how their relationship developed. I am really curious to see what y'all thought of this one. Did you love it like me, or were you disappointed???
Feb 21, Kellie Maddox-Ward rated it it was amazing Shelves: Re- Read March V April V my man.. She is exactly what V needs! We learn about this in flashbacks throughout the story and learn many things about V that are never mentioned, like his background, family , tattoo's , his glowing hand , visions hint hint P. M, Blay and especially Qhuinn! Where is that going to go?? Mar 25, Exina rated it really liked it Shelves: Well, Vishous has issues.
Always had. He was brutally tortured and abused as a little child, sexually assaulted as a young man. Lately, he is plagued by a nightmare about his own death so he dreads to fall asleep. His abilities are in ruins: He is attracted to his best friend, Butch, Well, Vishous has issues.
He is attracted to his best friend, Butch, but as Butch had found his mate, Marissa, in the previous book, Lover Revealed , the unthinkable has become impossible for Vishous. Her mother forces him to be the Primale of the Chosens, a duty has to be done on behalf of his race. On the chessboard of his godforsaken life, the pieces were lined up, the play preordained.
Man, so many times in life you didn't get to pick your path because the way you went was decided for you. Free will was such bullshit. Therefore the fact that Vishous is a practically immortal vampire and Jane is a human is not the only obstacle between them.
Yet, she has become an empathetic, tolerant, strong-willed woman. I adore her wit and intelligence, but sadly you get not much of her personality, as in this book Vishous is the main character, not her. Her portrayal is not equally detailed as his.
My back. He finally finds acceptance and understanding, and goes through his transition. The story The focus is on Vishous and Jane. Instead of them, Vishous has to face an unexpected enemy. The way Ward prepares and runs the story of a character is outstanding.
It's a reread, so now I understand and enjoy all those little hints which have a strong significance regarding to the following books. The maze of links created between the characters is truly amazing.
Even though I'm not fully satisfied with the romance, the story is heartbreaking and highly erotic. Besides, the side characters' storylines are really engaging. Originally posted on my blog on February 22, My favorite quotes.

But my only complaint about this one was the ending. It was strange, jarring, and too abrupt. It was kind of weird to live their lives like THAT! I thought V deserved real happiness after all he had been through! The author made them look so pathetic!
When I was a little more than halfway through the stroy, I was thinking about giving this book 5 stars, but the last I thoroughly enjoyed this book. When I was a little more than halfway through the stroy, I was thinking about giving this book 5 stars, but the last quarter and the ending made me reduce the rating to 4 instead.

Just for V -5 Grey Goose Stars I can't do this review justice because there is so much going on in this book that anytime you want to say something, I think it would be a spoiler. JR Ward gave me so much about so many of the characters that my review would be so long that you would have to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner reading my review!!
Here is my condensed version. I forgot to mention another work Kinky V and Jane meet when he is shot and she is the trauma surgeon who saves his life. He can't stay in the hospital and risk exposure. His brothers come to rescue him but V can't leave without her and so Jane is kidnapped to take care of V till he recovers.
It's risky bringing her back to the Mansion, but her memory will be erased when the time comes. But before she return to her life, their love story develops out of talking and trusting.
V, never trusting or loving anyone besides Butch, finds out what he has been missing his whole life and her name is Jane. We get the background of why V is the way he is. His story is heartbreaking and evil. What he endured until he transitioned would break anyone.
Jane's life was lacking in love- the one person Jane loved the most, died as a child. She is alone in life and all she has is her profession.
How these 2 come together is beautiful, loving, emotional and very, very steamy!! I know I sound like a broken record with my reviews of this series but each book has topped the one before it!!!
This book gave us so much on John Matthews, Blay and Qhuinn Butch and V and their connection, their bromance, their love!!! I am the first to tell you that I would have never, ever, wanted to read about Vampires, but as one lovely lady told me, you need to go outside your comfort zone, and give it a try.
I love when I am so completely knocked off my socks and if you have not read this series, you are truly missing out!!
My suggestion is to read this series, this book and here is why Do I Love V Oops I forgot that Christy has dibs on V View all 52 comments.
My favorite of the series so far!! Butch's book, Lover Revealed , was such a disappointment, I was hesitant to continue the series, but I loved V so much, I needed to find out if he got a heroine worthy of him! Well the other half of the bromance got his due and J. Jane and V No back and forth with Jane, she lays it all out there, stands her ground, but once she was in, she was in I loved that about her!
For all that he went through in his life, he finally got the happiness he was so deserving of. Not only did this book offer up a great pairing with Jane and V, we got more John John, John, John. This guy breaks my heart, but good things are on the horizon for him, I can feel it.
John, Blay and Qhuinn I also enjoyed the part Phury played in this book and how it will transition into his own story. It feel like the author hit her stride with this book. The product endorsements were still there, but not nearly as much as with the first 4 books in the series, it gets annoying after a while.
She seemed to focus more on the main characters and didn't go on endlessly about the villains, the writing was much better! Hopefully this will continue throughout the series. I'm looking forward to Phury's book, but the one I can't wait to get to is John's!!
Please make it good for me J. View all 40 comments. Nov 27, Debra rated it really liked it Shelves: Don't get me wrong, I loved Vishous and Jane's storyline and I thought they made a perfect couple with Jane being one of the few women, strong and determined enough to stand up to someone like V. And V's past was just so heartbreaking But I wasn't that big a fan of all the side stories, particularly the one of Phury and Cormia, so I might take a break for a while before continuing with the rest of the series.
Still, this series is one of the best and most addictive I've read lately and I would highly recommend all paranormal romance lovers to give it a try! His one and only priority was keeping her alive and healthy and safe, and the strength with which he held that directive made him feel whole. He was who he was because of her. It was infinite. View all 31 comments. Oct 19, Shurrn rated it really liked it Shelves: Love, tears, suspense, laugher, sex Yet another emotional powerhouse from the Black Dagger Brotherhood Series.
The story of Vishous is beautiful and heartbreaking. Let's start by saying that I was a fairly unimpressed by the previous book, Lover Revealed you can read my review here.
What it boiled down to was that Marissa aka Mrs. Buzzkillington left a bad taste in my mouth. She was weak-willed, whiny, and spoiled And totally killed my enjoyment of the book So I was beyond thrilled w Love, tears, suspense, laugher, sex So I was beyond thrilled when we got to meet Dr.
Jane Witcomb. JANE was an outstanding addition to the series ; she was a strong, smart, foul-mouthed surgeon, and I couldn't be happier about the fact that we have a tough as nails heroine in this book. I thought that Jane was the perfect match for Vishous.
They're both highly intelligent, voracious readers, had crappy parents, and Jane was really the only person besides Butch who could put V in his place. Jane, you're cool.
His life is at a crossroads, and until he finds his path, he'll continue to be blind to the future. He's haunted by his nightmares. He's barely sleeping, and by the end of the last book he was quickly losing his mind. The flashbacks of V's youth at the Warrior camp were wonderfully well-incorporated into the overall story.
We finally learned the origin of his tattoos as well as his cursed hand. Hell, talk about Parent Issues. I wasn't surprised to hear about the ruthless nature of Bloodletter, but the fact that the Scribe Virgin is V's mother came as a bit of a shock.
Ward's ability to maintain multiple elaborate plot-lines for secondary and tertiary characters while maintaining focus on the main couple in each book Big things were happening in the Brotherhood outside of Vishous and Jane's story PHURY stepped into the spotlight a bit more. We hadn't seen or heard much out of him since Zsadist's story in Book Three. He's gone a little off the rails, like he had some sort of personality transplant.
His lovesick thoughts about Bella are leading to some seriously self-destructive behavior. I enjoy the tortured hero trope as much as the next girl, but the knowledge that they're always on the verge of a train-wreck doesn't get me excited to read the next book. I will read Lover Enshrined. I'm curious to see how this Primale thing is going to play out Expecting a several-hundred year old virgin to sexually service 40ish other virgins seems like a disaster waiting to happen an intriguing conflict.
We got to see much more of the the Scribe Virgin's domain through the eyes of Cormia; Phury's new Mate And I suppose we'll see and hear more about them both in the next book. My weak heroine alarm bells are ringing though Partly because he is so complex; his back story alone would be infinitely interesting even without the whole Darius connection which we get to shed a little more light on in the course of this story. In addition, view spoiler [ John's transition hit, so he's one of the big boys now yay!
I'm glad that Zsadist has taken a special interest in John. And I'm glad that Z revealed his sole knowledge of the attack which has left John so emotionally scarred.
However, I wish Z would tell John that he's not alone. He would really benefit from hearing that a Male he respects has suffered the same kind of abuse and is still a Warrior.
Though I am beginning to grasp some of her motives. LESSERS Considering the fact that view spoiler [a lesser popped up just in time to kill Jane as though we all didn't know what was coming when they kept mentioning the minivan next door we really didn't see much from the Omega or the Lessers.
There was plenty to focus on without input from the undead slayer society hide spoiler ] I know that the frequency with which the author chooses to focus on the POV of the Lessers is a point of contention among fans of the series.
Personally, I enjoy reading the twisted personalities of Mr. O and Mr. I find that the dichotomy between the Brotherhood and the Lessers provides depth to the series. I was really able to believe the feelings of desperate loss from Jane I actually got a little misty-eyed. So we were suffering through the Breakup V was a mess. Jane was a mess. The Brotherhood was all on edge.
Then Phury steps up and volunteers to be the Primale in V's place. Wrath approves of the change. So does the Scribe Virgin. So Vishous rushes over to Jane's house He restores her memories of him.
We have this touching reunion. Then reality sets in How can a human and a vampire stay together? Vishous can't walk away from the Brotherhood. Jane can't walk away from being a surgeon. Neither can walk away from their love Then Jane has a revelation!
She'll be chief surgeon for the Brotherhood. They'll stay in the compound together. Its a win - win! Everything is going to work out for these two! Vishous Watches His Mate Die. He tries to use his hand to resurrect her. The Scribe Virgin stops him. She turns Jane's body into a bust made of ash.
She's gone. Vishous is alone. A few days later, Vishous has his psychic curse back. Jose Saramago. Luna Miguel. Mary Higgins Clark. Juan Gomez-Jurado. Shannon Kirk. Gregg Hurwitz.

Soon, Vishous has brought the unwitting human back to the Brotherhood lair, where she returns his feelings, opening up a potentially cataclysmic conflict—Vishous is, against his will, destined to become the Primale, a warrior with multiple vampire wives who's meant to ensure the survival of the species.
Ward has by now become an expert at fleshing out the stories of her supporting characters—each with his or her own novel—without overpowering the central story, and while the romance between Vishous and Whitcomb is genre-typical, Ward isn't afraid to break with convention in challenging, gratifying ways. Though not recommended for newcomers to Ward's universe or romance traditionalists, this fix will give Brotherhood addicts a powerful rush.

If you dislike a book written from a dual POV, then you'll hate this book for its written from four or five different POVs. There were times you can't tell immediately who's talking.
This gives you more than whiplash. I thought this would be a book with Vishous and Jane as the main characters with the other brothers and their mates making appearances. You're given all of their POVs at different times and their roles are as major as Vishous. I was left confused, unhappy and downright angry after reading this book. This book left me with plenty of unanswered questions with no feeling of satisfaction.
What cost did Vishous and Jane pay and why was their cost so high? Nothing was resolved for Phury and Cormia and you're left not really caring what happens with them. John's story has been drawn out entirely too long.
I won't read more books hoping Darius would return. Does John or Beth really need him? And, how did the Directrix get away with her actions right under the nose of the Scribe Virgin? The Scribe Virgin is not the end all - there is one more powerful. Yeah, right? How did Vishous' twin get overlooked all this time? Just something to dangle, enticing you to keep reading the series. After rereading Father Mine, I'm finished with this series unless other books are put on sale. Disappointment describes how I'm left feeling about this book and the series.
Rhevenge has been a favorite of mine in earlier books. This time, he gets his own story. Loved loved loved it. Elhena's character is very realistic, and the perfect foil in many ways to the series storylines. She's a nurse, a caregiver, and a woman struggling to handle the cards dealt to her with some dignity.
