"The hottest collection of studs in romance" (New York Times best-selling author Angela Knight) returns as number-one New York Times best-selling author J. R. Ward brings together two of the most beloved people in the Black Dagger Brotherhood world - at last....
Qhuinn, son of no one, is used to being on his own. Disavowed from his bloodline, shunned by the aristocracy, he has finally found an identity as one of the most brutal fighters in the war against the Lessening Society. But his life is not complete. Even as the prospect of having a family of his own seems to be within reach, he is empty on the inside, his heart given to another....
Blay, after years of unrequited love, has moved on from his feelings for Qhuinn. And it's about time: The male has found his perfect match in a Chosen female, and they are going to have a young - just as Qhuinn has always wanted for himself. It's hard to see the new couple together, but building your life around a pipe dream is just a heartbreak waiting to happen. As he's learned firsthand.
Fate seems to have taken these vampire soldiers in different directions...but as the battle over the race's throne intensifies, and new players on the scene in Caldwell create mortal danger for the Brotherhood, Qhuinn finally learns the true definition of courage, and two hearts who are meant to be together...finally become one.

Gimme a good story and I'm happy!
So YES! Jim Frangione is my car BFF. It's impossible for me to be in my car for any length of time without him reading me a Black Dagger Brotherhood story!
Nothing comes to mind. Qhuinn & Blay were the first m/m couple for me, so I don't have a lot of experience with this type of romance. That said, I love knowing that love is love and attraction is attraction, regardless of the participants' gender.
He really brings these characters to life! Even the shellans. He hits the nail on the head every time. I love his voice, his inflections, his tone.
Only if you read from Book 1 -5. It would be hard to keep up if you don't know the key players. I am not talking the two main characters either but the 'many'!
I could not put this thing down. I could barely sleep just like the first books! It was NOT an overly romantic, too detail dive into the main couple's relationship. It was many stories but not too many to get confused. They intersect when you least expect it. It is great to revisit the characters I know and they were just like I remembered them. Here's my snip: new characters-interesting, pace-quick, transitions-great , the romance-high, sex-hot, the slang-duh, forbidden relationships-everywhere, the formal dialect & class snobbery-still there!, suspense-lots, lessers-less!! Seriously it is great to be back to looking forward to the next release.
He is AWESOME!
There is a surprise person in here that shows up and I can't imagine anyone would have predicted!
So many books...so little time! :)
Ahhh...the suspense!! Finally Lover At Last is here, and Blay and Qhuinn finally have their chance...or do they? Where does one start in reviewing this book!?!? Lover At Last has frustrating, suspenseful, intense, romantic, sad, and happy moments to name a few, and new characters and possible love interests!?!? J.R. Ward has a way of filling her book with OMG moments, and she definitely doesn't hold back in here.
Qhuinn and Blay have literally had their ups and downs, but as Qhuinn jumps in and attempts to save the day yet again, his near death experience serves as a much needed wake up call. As Qhuinn finally realizes what he wants, is it too late? If only people could speak their mind from the beginning!!
Yes...it is a bit predictable, but I thought it was so worth listening to, and I am very interested to see where the stories continue to go!! Trez, Assail, Xcor, and Layla...so many stories going on...not to mention the next book is going to focus on Wrath...there is a lot more coming!! Now until the next book...only a year away! Hope patience pays off!! ;)
Power, loyalty, honesty.
J.R. Ward's writing style. She never gives in to the easy answers and is straight forward in her writing. Powerful ideas elegantly expressed. I also like the odd phrases she makes up to describe actions in progress.
I'm not sure Jim was comfortable with the reading in this story...paused where there were none and had unique twists of phrase but his timber and voice were good.
Hold on to your undies ladies...if you wear 'em!
Lover at last is a worthy addition to the black dagger brotherhood series and brings the story full circle about a plot issue that developed in the very beginning of the series. It's a satisfying read.
Believer in what you can't see
Yes, I don't know how she does it, but J.R. Ward out does herself with every additional book in this series. Wow.
My all time favorite in this series is Rhage, but in this book it is Blah. Blah has taken a lot of rejection from Quinn and it was nice that he finally received the love he deserve from both his parents and Quinn.
He brings a great depth to this series. He brings a lot of how the characters feel and who they are through his narrations. Great with the male characters and brings strength to the female characters.
Yes it is, but no I didn't. There is no way I could sit 23 hours straight and do nothing else, but the story was so good that the time just flew.
I highly recommend this series.
I've been waiting since Book 4 for a the Quinn & Blay story, and I can say I wasn't disappointed. Well done, and fully fleshed out.
This book like many others in the series is not just about the principles but those that surround them, and even introduction of new characters. Ward has outdone herself again.
Love this series but I feel so many storylines have been dropped and would make the series much better. The narrator is awful PLEASE change him! Not sure if I would continue the series because I am excited for the next book or just to see what the next book might involve.
Quinn and Blay FINALLY get together!
Ummmmmmm, Quinn and Blay. Ok, I like that future stotylines were incorporated to continue the series. But mostly, yeah, Quinn and Blay. I'm totally hetero but have been rooting for these two for a while now!
When Quinn lost his virginity to Blay. It wasn't about the sex, it was about Quinn giving the only thing of value he had left to Blay.
Say something about yourself!
I love the Blackdagger brotherhood series. All the characters are so complex and interesting. I was very excited to see that we will finally find out what will happen with Quinn and Blay.
I am very pleased with how it all turned out. The only reason I gave it three stars is because it's so long and I found myself being confused about certain storylines. I ended up jumping around and skipping chapters. I even surfed the Internet for spoilers!! Perhaps in the future I should look for the abridged version.
If you're inpatient like me and just want to know what happens with Quinn and Blay I would suggest searching for spoilers. I may regret this for future books but I just couldn't Stay focused on the other storylines.
No. But the reader does an amazing job of bringing the story to life.
I love all the characters in the BDB world. Although, I was amazed at how she was able to make me love Quinn and Blay a little more.
I only put the book down when I had to go to work or sleep.
J. R. Ward does an amazing job of telling a love story about two males. I did not think of the story as being about to males but two people in love. Two people who deserved to be in love. Great job J.R. Ward fan for life.
