Good But Disappointing
Yes, I would try another book. The series is good but the last few books have not been as good as the beginning books in this series. The Warden seems to be lacking something in this book, in that it seems she gave in to popular demand of putting the two leading characters together. While I completely believe that Blay is in love with Qhuinn at no point do I believe that Qhuinn has the same undying love for Blay. A fling, a phase, perhaps a deep friendship that he is confused about but never the love The Warden writes about. The new characters she brings in on this book are interesting and I can see where it will lead to some interesting situations.
Wrath and Vishous
Read the first books so you won't dislike the series
JR Ward delivered on this one. For some reason Lover Reborn didn't do it but wow Lover At Last had me hanging on every word. Can't wait for the next book!!
I love to read. I love all genres but romance in particular. The hotter and steamy and sexier book is the more I want to read it.
lots of stories
the epilogue, it was a wonderful end to the story.
Blay and Quhin danceing
No , but it was a really good book,
I went in to this book with some hesitation, due to the fact the two main lovers are males, and while I love them as a couple I did not know if ready for thier love scene. but JR Ward is wonderful in her story telling , and it wsa better than I expected,
I've long awaited this storyline. I think that Ward played out the scenes wonderfully and I was so excited about Quinns joining the brotherhood AND the finding of his brother. The epilogue was touching although I do wish that there was a bit more detailing.
Civil War Nut LH
I was looking forward to this story for a long time and it was wonderful! I love all the books of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, but this one was special. I was interested to see how the author would handle an exclusively gay story. At its heart, it's a love story, pure and simple, but with an erotic kick (like the other BDB books). If you're a first-time reader of this series, you might want to take them in order as I believe it makes them easier to follow. (Other story lines are woven into each book.) This is definitely a MUST HAVE!
It ranks very high. i have all of this series on audio and I love them all. Jim Frangione is AMAZING and I don't think anyone else could read this series the way he does.
Oh i have lots of favorites! I love Qhuinn so much. He is so tortured.
The ending...NO SPOILERS!!
Yes there was but I have a strict NO SPOILER policy. It involved a male, a female and someone else. ALl I can say. I actually CRIED!!!
Also the end made me cry.
Ok and one other part made me cry. They all had to do with Qhuinn!!!
This book wsa a little long in the fact that it seemed to repeat itself a lot. The secondary stories and characters were not as gripping as books past. Half the time, I had no clue who they were talking about b/c i was so focused on the main characters. This is very unusaly for JR Warden books in this series. I love this series and do not mean to take anything away from this book. it was still amazing.
Like all of J.R. Wards book, you are going to experience the full range of emotions. I laughed through most of the book. Of course, there were also many tears.
In many ways, this book provided closet to the interaction between Quinn and Blade. While I am not into M/M story lines, this book is good! It had the passion and excitement of all of J.R. Wards books. Blade and Quinn are very hot characters. In addition, the new supporting characters were wonderful. I am eager for the next book.
Average. My 2nd least favorite of all the Black Dagger brotherhood books.
Quinn... complex yet fun.
...would not make a movie of this book.
Waiting for the next book. I miss the themes of the first five books... those were so hot!!!!
This book ranks among the best books I've listened to in four years
The pace, the story line, the passion and the narrator
Yes, he is my favorite narrator bar none. So much so, I am currently listening to a new author I found by tracking the books he has performed.
This is the first book where I was so wrapped up that I had a visceral reaction during the conflict scenes. My pulse was racing and I was bereft. Odd, but definitely notable! Between the author and the narrator...I was there!
Oh dear reader I was one of many who waited with baited breath and saved a credit just to wait for the “pre-order” link to appear for this novel. Once it did, I eagerly pre-ordered the book, set my alarm and woke up with its chime to download my new present to myself only to find I was nervous about pressing play. “What if it’s horrible? What if it doesn’t live up to my expectations?” Let me assure you all of this anxiety was truly wasted. Lover at Last is absolutely brilliant! Given the main characters of the book are not your “typical” M/F roles, please do not let this deter you from this download. The love story of Quinn and Blaylock has been building for some time, and true fans of the BDB series would not dare skip over this book simply because of a matter of a gender shift in the main characters sexual preference.
Lover at Last takes you to places in your imagination you did not expect to go. One minute you may be vacuuming you living room while listening to your audio book and the next you will find yourself sitting down on the edge of your couch in tears pleading the Quinn to just tell him. From the listener’s point of view there are too many favorable and emotional scenes to pick a favorite and too many raw emotions from both Quinn and Blay to not want to step in be their therapist.
JR Ward also sets up ambitions side stories with Layla and Score, (such a tender moment when he disarms himself to approach her) the shadow brothers Trez and the laid back IAM and Assail with his possible love interest Marisol. The Lessening society even seems to have some new tricks up their powdery smelling sleeves. I know many readers are looking forward to a particular couple in the next book, but I am hoping to still hear about them all even if only one is the focal point.
WARNING: For those of you who want to jump into this series, Lover at Last is not the place to do so. I plead with you to go back and listen to the earlier audiobooks to get your background primed and ready. Stepping in at this point would be like attending a family reunion with so much drama unfolding and you have no idea what is going on until afterwards when someone has to explain everything to you.
