What do you say about an author who knows how to keep you on the edge of your seat. I read all 600 pages in one day, and then I had to get the audiobook so I could listen to Jim Frangione tell the story like no one else could. Unlike the other books in this series, you don't know what the outcome will be. There are so many twists and turns that everything you thought about the vampire couples is turned upside down.
I have been fascinated with the BDB since I read Lover Avenged. The book was so good that I had to go to the first book and read them all. There has always been a flow that I could count on. The inevitable was almost predictable. Not true with Lover Reborn. I spent the entire time I was reading on the verge of tears, tears of happiness and tears of sorrow. Ms. Ward has created characters that become real. They are strong, yet vulnerable. You get invested in their flaws, tragedies, and happiness. Even the bad guys are not really the bad guys, just different, with different points of view.
Don't get me wrong, I hope that Wrath and his men always win in the end, but I had to take a step back and consider Xcor and his men's feelings. This did not happen before. The Lessening Society was always wrong, always bad, and I always wanted them to lose the fight.
Please don't make this book your first taste of the Black Dagger Brotherhood. Start from Dark Lover and work your way through the series. You won't be sorry, and everything will make more sense.
Overall, I like the Rock Chicks, but this heroine is the most irritating person I ever read about. How many times does someone have to tell her she matters before she believes it. I realize that there are really people like this in the world, people that have been put down all their lives, but please, this is a romance book. No one put her down to make her this way, she just assumes that she is boring and unattractive. I wanted to strangle her. I almost gave up on this book, but figured that I needed to finish to keep going with the series.
Love this author. Ms Harper mixes just the right amount of sex, suspense, humor, and love to make me want to sit up and yell...MORE. Amanda Ronconi reads with such ease that I want her to read all the humorous books I listen to. Thanks for another great one.
Story line was weak, and the reader wasn't that strong either. If you're looking for a nice book to listen to on a lazy Sunday afternoon, this is it. Not very stressful or exciting, just OK. I do like a bit more suspense and erotic sex in my wolves, but you can't win them all. I'll try the next in the series to see if it gets any better.
Molly Harper has another hit. Laughing out loud became a habit as I was listening to this book. People kept looking at me like I was a nut job. The story has just the right amount of humor and insight to make it believeable. Amanda Ronconi has this author down pat. Thanks for the fun Molly.
I expected better from this author. Story dragged and I didn't like the reader. I had to force myself to finish this book. I think Ms. Cole needs to get back to basics. I think sex is great in a book, but there has to be a reason that it is relevant. I felt that Lothaire was a wining child at times, the story dwells too much on his bad past. If I were looking for a sexy, strong vampire hero, it wouldn't be him, he would make me crazy.
Patricia Briggs and Holter Graham are the dynamic duo. First class writing coupled with an outstanding narration. I look forward to the next chapter in Charles and Anna's world.
