This has to be the third best Black Dagger Brotherhood yet – ok maybe I’m a little bias because this is Payne and Manny’s book and there is a TON of V - - - you know how I love V! He’s one of my favorite brothers. .
Ward is shockingly amazing as she continues to weave this world of the Black Dagger Brotherhood. She’s going strong and captivates her audience.
Payne – I kinda want to be Payne – she is the hard as nails fighter with a soft center. It’s the perfect combination next to Xhex (who I really want to be). The bad ass girls are definitely in the ranks.
As Payne and Manny’s story unfolds, V and Jane and Butch (can’t leave out Butch) are challenged to work out some huge kinks. Until V can come to terms with himself, his twin can’t be happy. The story takes a big focus on V and smaller on Payne. Emotions roller coaster with Jane and V; Payne and Manny manage to steam it up; and some how, we’re caught right in the middle where we want to be. Could we have had more Payne? Maybe, but honestly I think there is more to come. While Wrath, Rhage, Z and V had over the top action, we know the last 3 previous books have shown our more emotional brothers. This book, meshes them together. If you’re looking for a spoiler about Blay and Quinn, let’s just say, their saga continues…
Ward knocks me over again as she manages to get so much into a book less than 500 pages. The story runs like a well-oiled machine, given the number of situations Ward normally has going on in the books and the switch back and forth, this one is done over the top the best. As a mom of boy/girl twins, I loved the Payne/V relationship.
If you have never read the series, jump up and get to the store to find Dark Lover – Book 1 in the series. You will not be disappointed. If you are just waiting for your copy of Lover Unleashed to arrive, when it gets there, rip open the package, close and lock your door, and read on! Ward’s announced the next book, I’ll say it’s not Blay and Quinn L But I’m hoping with the new characters in this book, it grabs the action again….
