The third book in the series tells the story of the vampire Zsadist, a former blood slave with a violent past. When he meets Bella, Zsadist thinks her human love could be his path to salvation. Then Bella is kidnapped, and Zsadist will stop at nothing to get her back.
Listen to another Black Dagger Brotherhood chiller.

Say something about yourself!
J.R Ward keeps the hits rolling. If you have gotten to book 3 then you know why! The plots are awesome, the characters are awesome, and the love scenes are hot!
Believer in what you can't see
I have already listened to it again. This series is better when you read and listen to it at the same time.
That Zsadist was able to get beyond his past and learned to love and care for others.
Frangione's fits the storyline and brings out the characters emotions and personality very well.
Yes, it made me very upset that Zsadist was so abused. I never understand how anyone get their jollies out of hurting someone that badly and actually believe themselves to be so important. Pathetic.
A very emotional and disturbing book. I love that J.R.Ward is so thorough with her stories. You will never feel shorted by her books.
Another intense story waiting to draw you into their world
Jim Frangione's voice and performance is a good match for the depth of this story.
It was hard to unplug and return to my everyday life.
I am relieved there are so many books in this series!
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.
