[Review] - Lover Unleashed
Author: J.R. Ward
Series: Black Dagger Brotherhood
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: March 29, 2011
Summary: Payne, twin sister of Vishous, is cut from the same dark, warrior cloth as her brother: A fighter by nature, and a maverick when it comes to the traditional role of Chosen females, there is no place for her on the Far Side… and no role for her on the front lines of the war, either.
When she suffers a paralyzing injury, human surgeon Dr. Manuel Manello is called in to treat her as only he can- and he soon gets sucked into her dangerous, secret world. Although he never before believed in things that go bump in the night- like vampires- he finds himself more than willing to be seduced by the powerful female who marks both his body and his soul.
As the two find so much more than an erotic connection, the human and vampire worlds collide … just as a centuries old score catches up with Payne and puts both her love and her life in deadly jeopardy.
Thoughts: Originally I wasn't too excited that the next book would be about Payne and Manny. But they both grew on me and I ended up really liking them. I love that we got to see more about Vishous and Jane. They go through some serious stuff in this one. It's as much their book as it is Payne and Manny's. I know alot of fans love Blay and Qhuinn and I do too. But for this book I could of done without their story line. Qhuinn does have revelation in this book that I'm curious to see how it will play out. Xcor and his group were interesting as well, but I doesn't seem that they have any good intentions.
Lover Unleashed wasn't my favorite in the series, but I still loved the story. Definitely a good addition to the series.
Score: 4 Stars
