date anyone Rehv moved in even closer, until he could see the flecks of gold in her eyes But I m not just anyoneWow I think I ve found my new favorite BDB book Besides Z s, he will ALWAYS be 1 My first read was great, I loved it, but it didn t stand out from the others On my second read Amazing One of my favorite books EVER, not just the BDB It s totally surprising considering Rehv and the nasty business with his blackmailer, but I SOOO loved him I loved the whole book All the side characters were amazing except Lash, stupid moronic idiot who needs to DIE, ASAP Anyway D Loved it The storyWith most of the glymera dead or hidden, there is a fight for power in the vampire world between those who are left behind, and their main obstacle is their king, Wrath.Only four Brothers are left that are able to fight, which forces Wrath to get back on the streets and do some fighting on his own, even though it s forbidden because he is King.Rehvenge is approached by a council member who wants to eliminate Wrath.He has to deal with his club, his monthly visit to his blackmailer, his illness that needs and treatments, and now he has to decide where his loyalties lie.One night at the clinic, waiting for his dopamine shots, he talks with his nurse, Ehlena She isn t afraid of Rehv like all the others are, and is intrigued by him, but she knows that they are from two totally different worlds, so she refuses him when his flirtations get too high.When Rehv s past and double life threaten the people he loves, he will be forced to make a difficult decisionAll I know is, life is too short not to come back here and be with you like this again Life is just too short, and I like being with you too much for me to give a crap about anything other than having another moment like this Rehvenge s chest swelled as he stared at her Ehlena Yeah Don t take this the wrong way She drew in a deep breath and he saw her bare shoulders tighten Okay I ll try not to You keep showing up here Being who you are There was a pause I m going to fall in love with youThe story Loved it It was dark, it was f ed up, emotional and full of surprises, with some action as well Just fantastic The Brotherhood was forced to make some changes, as well as Wrath We get to see into Rehv s universe, how it all works, and what he must do to protect his own.The battle in the end was great, left with a little cliffie for the next book.The characters Even though this is Rehv s book, this one is focused on two couples, Wrath Beth and John Xhex They don t get THAT much page time, but they re there and we see their relationships progressing, some forward, some backwards Wrath Beth Wrath has been going out fighting alone, without anyone s knowledge, and that s something that will drive them apart

SpoilersLover Avenged is the 7th book in the BDB series and it was a good read with tons going on I m going to keep this review short and sweet so I can get to my John Matthews book right away Rehvenge and Ehlena were both cute and likable I loved how playful, vulnerable, and tender Rehv was with Ehlena Ehlena was sweet but she did make me angry for a bit when she didn t stand by her man I get that he lied to her and she was hurt but it took her a whole month to come around A month was too long Rehv and Ehlena s relationship was a slow burn but had a nice build up as they spend time together but didn t have a ton of sex because of Rehv s sympath side No matter what you wear to me, you will always have diamonds on the soles of your shoes Rehv He seemed so fragile as he gave himself up to her, and she realized that if anyone tried to hurt him, even though he could than take care of himself, she would commit murder To protect him, she would kill The conviction was as solid as the bones beneath her skin Even the powerful needed protection sometimes EhlenaI have to say that sympath stuff was interesting but not very detailed, so I was left with some question There was too damn much Lash and the Lessers shit in this book I didn t give one rat s ass about them I was bored everything time they were on the pages I took a star off my rating for the overabundance of Lash Lessers We readers got our first taste of Payne and I m loving her I loved Wrath and Beth in this book Poor Wrath went fully blind and the way it was handled was both heartbreaking and beautiful Tohr was back and trying to slowly piece his life back together I was really upset with Tohr and the way he was with John Matthew for half this book He was just so closed off and it ripped JM s heart out Lassiter was great I loved all the funny ass interactions between Lassiter and all the brothers John Matthew really hit rock bottom in this book Not that I don t totally understand where he was coming from but it was sad to read especially the parts with him and Xhex I really loved getting to know Xhex in this book My heart broke for both her and JM And OMG when Xhex was taken by Lash I was flipping I know my John Matthew will get his woman back but damn I hate Lash Overall a great read that needed less Lash Below a few of my favorite quotes Oh, for fuck s sake, don t look at me like that Rhage recovered first I can t help it You re just so sexy in those baggy ass pants I got to get me a pair, cause nothing says hotness like wearing what looks like two Heftys stitched together at your racket and balls Lassiter nodded Totally craptastic Sign my sac up for some of that Tohr, Rhage, and Lassiter John Matthew was her well of soul, as the symphaths called it,or her pyrocant, to the vampires Her essential weakness Xhex Oh, man there s a marathon of Beaches running tomorrow night Can we go after ten so I can see it once all the way through Everyone in the room turned to the blond and black haired guy, who was propped in the corner, massive arms over his chest What, he said Look, it s not Mary Tyler Moore, kay So you can t give me shit Vishous, the one with the black glove on his hand, glared across the room It s worse than Mary Tyler Moore And to call you and idiot would be an insult to half wits around the world Are you kidding me Bette Midler rocks And I love the ocean Sue me Vishous glanced at the king You told me I could beat him You promised As soon as you come home, Wrath said as he got to his feet, we ll hang him up by his armpits in the gym and you can use him as a punching bag Thank you, baby Jesus Blond and Black shook his head I swear, one of these days I m going to leave As one, the Brothers all pointed to the open door and let silence speak for itself You guys suck Lassiter,Vishous, and Wrath Excellent, just excellent JR Ward is back with a vengeance For anyone who was disappointed with the previous two books in the BDB series, I urge you not to give up on it Lover Avenged is every bit as good a book as the first four of the series It s got everything that you could want, starting with an outstanding hero and heroine in nightclub owner drug lord Rehvenge and nurse Ehlena It s a testimony to the author s writing skills that she can make a drug lord, mobster pimp into one of her most endearing heroes ever I absolutely adored Rehvenge, and I never thought I would say that His character has always been so so for me But now that JR Ward has fleshed out his character, and we learn the WHY of who he is and why he s done the things he has, I just could not resist him I totally fell for the mohawked, sable fur wearing hardass with a heart of gold By the end of the book, he proved that he truly was a male of worth.As for Ehlena, well, she may be my favorite heroine of the whole series She was brave, compassionate, a caregiver for her mentally sick father, and most of all, forgiving I wanted her to have everything I thought she deserved And she took no crap from Rehvenge But when she broke up with him it just about killed me, and I wasn t too happy with her It was funny because when they first started out she didn t think she was good enough for him, but at the end the tables turned and Rehvenge insisted he wasn t good enough for her Clearly these two belonged together and were perfect for each other They are one of my favorite couples of the entire series.And Ward brought the romance back Not with just Ehlena and Rehvenge, but as an added bonus the reader gets a renewed romance between Wrath and Beth And both romances were sexy and super hot no skimping on the details either Whew, Beth and Wrath had one scene that took them under the desk and across the floor And Rehvenge well, he was one generous lover is all I can say without giving away spoilers For fans of Lora Leigh s Breeds series, you ll be interested to know that there s some common ground between Rehvenge and the Breeds About the plot it s pretty simple It starts out four months after the previous book, and Wrath is secretly fighting again, while dealing with an increased loss in his vision Being the King, fighting s a big no no, but the ranks of the Brotherhood are depleted with Tohr gone and Phury involved with the Chosen And the lessers have been on a raid all summer, killing and stealing from the glymera, and it looks like they re making serious inroads in their war with the vampires So Wrath is keeping secrets, which isn t good for his marriage And when Beth finds out she s mad about the lying, and that places a serious strain on their relationship Add to that a plot to get rid of as in kill and replace the King by some of the glymera, and it s no wonder Wrath has one giant headache all the time.Then we have nightclub owner, drug lord, and secret half breed sympath Rehvenge, brother of Bella, who s married to the Brother Zsadist Rehvenge s identity as part sympath is a closely guarded secret and it comes with a host of medical complications in order to suppress that side of him if it s revealed he could be banished to a colony for these sociopaths Rehvenge is getting blackmailed from a couple of people who know his true identity, and one of them wants him to go in on a plot to murder Wrath Although they re not exactly friends, can he do that to Wrath and the Brothers Then Rehv meets a nurse at Dr Havers clinic, the beautiful Ehlena, and sparks start to fly Rehv is so drawn to her, but he can t be honest with her If she finds out who what he is and what he has to do once a month with the vile scorpion princess one of the most disgusting villains ever straight out of a Stephen King horror novel , she would be repulsed When it looks like destiny is leading Rehv on a clear path that can t include Ehlena, will he be strong enough to give up the one woman who brings light and hope to his increasingly lonely life Fans of the series will be happy to know that almost all the characters have at least a cameo appearance, except I don t recall Marissa or Cormia mentioned except in passing But no matter, all the Brothers are back, with their wisecracks and idiosyncrasies, including Tohr, who finally looks like he ll be getting his act together I loved the interaction between Tohr and Lassiter, the fallen angel who helped rescue him and sticks around a while with the Brothers He has some of the funniest moments in the book his fascination with The Mary Tyler Moore Show and the Bette Midler movie Beaches and the brothers reaction to that had me laughing out loud There also is a mention of the character of Muhrder, who has a connection to Xhex which I m sure we ll hear about , a brief reappearance of Payne who has an encounter with Wrath , Lash who s back with a vengeance and is crucial to the plot and an adorable new character, George.There is lots of humor in the book, which helps relieve some of the tension that builds up in the plot I laughed out loud many times for example, when Butch called Wrath Rapunzel due to his long hair , or when Wrath questioned the effectiveness of a bullet proof vest he was wearing because of how light it was, and V suggested he strap a garage door, or maybe a car, to his chest There were LOTS of moments like that, and clearly, the brothers have not lost their sense of humor.We also get to see where the series is headed with the new blood John Matthew, Quinn, and Blay John Matthew and his obsession, tough girl Xhex finally hook up, but sadly, it s not all it could be These two have a lot of growing up to do, because they spend most of their time in the book hurting themselves and each other There s way than meets the eye with Xhex though, and the author gives us just a hint about her troubled past She was a hard character to love, especially when she hurt John Matthew I wanted to scratch her eyes out But then as and of her background was revealed, I felt sorry for her and all that she went through in her life She is a big part of the plot in this book, and because of where the story takes her, I m sure she will be in the next book Her situation and her relationship with John is clearly left unresolved.This is a very long book over 500 pages , but it moves along so fluidly you won t notice the length There were no spots where I was tempted to skip passages I wanted to read every detail, although some were very gory What Xhex does to some creep who murdered his girlfriend yuk There s quite a few plots going at one time, yet it never gets confusing Frustrating, sometimes, when Ward leaves you hanging to switch to another plot just as things are heating up romantically with one of the couples, but that just makes you want to read faster And the conclusion You ll think maybe JR Ward had a little help from Stephen King, is all I ll say My, what an imagination.As you can see, I loved this book This ranks right up there with my favorites of the series, and I think Ward is in the groove again I found this one extremely hard to put down, didn t want it to end, yet had to know the ending Wrath and Rehvenge struggle with but finally accept their destinies, and it helps that they each have their true loves by their sides I can t wait to see where JR Ward takes us with this series there s lots to tell 5 Big Stars
