Publisher's Summary

"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.

    "Worth the wait"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Lover at Last to be better than the print version?

    No. But the reader does an amazing job of bringing the story to life.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I only put the book down when I had to go to work or sleep.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "J. R. Ward is an awesome author but...."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I do not believe my time was well spent. It was an uncomfortable read.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Once Burned by Jeaniene Frost


    Which character – as performed by Jim Frangione – was your favorite?

    Asal (sp)


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    I did not enjoy the latest book in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. I do not enjoy gay romance, consequently this book just did not do it for me. I LOVE the Black Dagger Brotherhood series; it's one of my favorite. I do hope J. R. Ward limits the number of same sex relationships in future books. I was very disappointed with the latest addition.

    "A love story on the scale of Romeo and Juliet"

    I have been putting off writing this review because I've been too busy listening, reading, and listening again to the story. Please know that I never do that. I don't usually eat left overs, do not watch movies more than once and hardly ever re-read a book. I am on my 3rd, back-to-back reading/listening to this one.

    I've read most of the other reviews here and I don't think I can add much to what has already been said, neither can I say it any more eloquently than others have already done.

    I am only going to add that this is an incredible love story. I am neither pro nor against homosexuality. I don't normally like it thrown in my face since I don't throw my sexuality into other people's faces. This love story is between two homosexual males but I think that no one, sentimental enough to read love stories, will find any fault in this one. The opposite is true. The subject is treated with such respect and understanding that it may open some of our eyes.

    OK...on to the good part (thought you were already there?)

    The Warden writes action packed novels. I love action books, action movies, etc. This one is PACKED with action. Both in the physical form and in the psychological. Breathless...this book leaves me breathless ... even after 3 readings.

    I don't think there are enough stars above to show how much I love this book. So here are a few more: *************************************************************************************!!!

    "Good But Disappointing"
    If you could sum up Lover at Last in three words, what would they be?

    Good But Disappointing


    Would you be willing to try another book from J. R. Ward? Why or why not?

    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.


    Which character – as performed by Jim Frangione – was your favorite?

    Wrath and Vishous


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Read the first books so you won't dislike the series

    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


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Lover at Last?

    the epilogue, it was a wonderful end to the story.

    Blay and Quhin danceing


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No , but it was a really good book,


    Any additional comments?

    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,

    "J R Ward does it again..."

    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.

    "Outstanding!"
    Any additional comments?

    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!

    "JR WARD DOES IT AGAIN"
    Where does Lover at Last rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Oh i have lots of favorites! I love Qhuinn so much. He is so tortured.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The ending...NO SPOILERS!!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    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!!!


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "Quinn and Blade"
    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.
