"This genre-bending third novel in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series...is a perfect fit for those who like fast-paced urban fantasy rich in both fury and poignancy." (Booklist)
These books are enjoyable but I was worried that by book 3 the theme would start to repeat. I was happily surprised by this book and really liked where the author is taking these characters.
The whole series is great to listen to, very entertaining. Very easy yo be sept away in the story. :)
The whole story!
His voice is wonderful
If you havent read this you are missing out!!!!
I would listen to this book again because I am sure there was something I missed.

Maybe, and that's saying something for me. I'm a voracious reader, but I very rarely re-read books, regardless of format. In over 30 years, the only books I've ever read more than once are "The Hobbit" and "LOTR" by Tolkein, "Jane Eyre" by Charlotte Bronte and "A Discovery of Witches" and "Shadow of Night" by Deborah Harkness (and I only re-read these last two for the sake of a book club discussion.) The character of Zhadist is what might lead me to re-read "Lover Awakened". He's very unique, and his story is one of absolute ruin to absolute redemption.
(( So sorry I mixed up my reviews)) Zsadist is one of my favorite characters and I just loved the way the story was written. JR has become one of my favorite authors
I can't compare it. She is an author who can write stories that connect but are not copies of the others. And that is a great in my book!
How Bella's love was able t save Zsadist from himself.
Before I was even finished with this book I was buying the 4th in series! I cant get enough of the is story! Thank goodness there is 10 books I don't know what I will do when it ends!
BEST BOOK EVER
Every moment we got to see into the past was great
He could use a lil bit more emotion and a few slang lessons!!!!!!!! He is just very flat sometimes! But the story is what keeps me listening!
Yes, i teared up a few times! I just love...love
I pray she keeps up the good work!
I'm an eclectic reader. I'm 5 foot 3 in, brown eyes and silver hair. The rest is subject to change.
Jim Frangione gives a wonderful performance. The story is quick paced and well done. You care about the characters. It is a bromance with some steamy sex scenes and that is what makes it a guilty pleasure.
A tad predictable but satisfactory and fulfilling
Where Melissa comes into her awareness of herself as an individual.
I am a 40ish woman with more interests than time but some of my favorite things are books, audio books and e-books. I have over 325 audio titles and have already listened to about 2/3rds of them. I drive over 25000 miles a year and my listening keeps me sane on the road.
Heartbreaking, Powerful, Redemption
Zsadist! He was this tortured creature.. barely recognizable as capable of human emotions and then he is unwillingly forced to face his past and seek something better. His journey is some of the most powerful and emotional writing I have encountered and it is my favorite book in the series, hands down.
Zsadist because it is such a hard character to portray. It could have felt uncomfortable if not performed so brilliantly.
I could barely stop. I listen on the road for work and I hated having to go into my appointments and stop listening. This is also the first book I listened to at home. I just didn't sleep until it was finished. Then I started it over.
This is a pivotal book in the series and it must be read in order.
