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.

    "Outstanding as always"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I don't know how she does it, but J.R. Ward out does herself with every additional book in this series. Wow.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    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.


    What does Jim Frangione bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    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.


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

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend this series.

    "Excellent Continuation"

    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.

    Where does Lover at Last rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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.

    "if you are homophobic don't listen!"
    What made the experience of listening to Lover at Last the most enjoyable?

    Quinn and Blay FINALLY get together!


    What did you like best about this story?

    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!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    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.

    "Just to long for the Inpatient!!!"

    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.

    "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.

    Story
    "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

    JR Ward delivered on this one. For some reason Lover Reborn didn't do it but wow Lover At Last had me hanging on every word. Can't wait for the next book!!
