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.

    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.

    "HOT SEXY STORY"
    If you could sum up Lover at Last in three words, what would they be?

    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.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    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.

    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.

    "It was good, not great..."
    Where does Lover at Last rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Average. My 2nd least favorite of all the Black Dagger brotherhood books.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Quinn... complex yet fun.


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

    Clear audio


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

    ...would not make a movie of this book.


    Any additional comments?

    Waiting for the next book. I miss the themes of the first five books... those were so hot!!!!

    "Listened to the book over and over"
    Where does Lover at Last rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book ranks among the best books I've listened to in four years


    What did you like best about this story?

    The pace, the story line, the passion and the narrator


    Have you listened to any of Jim Frangione’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, he is my favorite narrator bar none. So much so, I am currently listening to a new author I found by tracking the books he has performed.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This is the first book where I was so wrapped up that I had a visceral reaction during the conflict scenes. My pulse was racing and I was bereft. Odd, but definitely notable! Between the author and the narrator...I was there!


    Any additional comments?

    Wow

    Story
    "By Jove She's Done It!"

    Oh dear reader I was one of many who waited with baited breath and saved a credit just to wait for the “pre-order” link to appear for this novel. Once it did, I eagerly pre-ordered the book, set my alarm and woke up with its chime to download my new present to myself only to find I was nervous about pressing play. “What if it’s horrible? What if it doesn’t live up to my expectations?” Let me assure you all of this anxiety was truly wasted. Lover at Last is absolutely brilliant! Given the main characters of the book are not your “typical” M/F roles, please do not let this deter you from this download. The love story of Quinn and Blaylock has been building for some time, and true fans of the BDB series would not dare skip over this book simply because of a matter of a gender shift in the main characters sexual preference.
    Lover at Last takes you to places in your imagination you did not expect to go. One minute you may be vacuuming you living room while listening to your audio book and the next you will find yourself sitting down on the edge of your couch in tears pleading the Quinn to just tell him. From the listener’s point of view there are too many favorable and emotional scenes to pick a favorite and too many raw emotions from both Quinn and Blay to not want to step in be their therapist.
    JR Ward also sets up ambitions side stories with Layla and Score, (such a tender moment when he disarms himself to approach her) the shadow brothers Trez and the laid back IAM and Assail with his possible love interest Marisol. The Lessening society even seems to have some new tricks up their powdery smelling sleeves. I know many readers are looking forward to a particular couple in the next book, but I am hoping to still hear about them all even if only one is the focal point.
    WARNING: For those of you who want to jump into this series, Lover at Last is not the place to do so. I plead with you to go back and listen to the earlier audiobooks to get your background primed and ready. Stepping in at this point would be like attending a family reunion with so much drama unfolding and you have no idea what is going on until afterwards when someone has to explain everything to you.

    "This book was 100% for the fans"
    Would you listen to Lover at Last again? Why?

    I liked the way Ms Ward connected the previous books and also opened the story for a few more books. I was afraid that she was getting tired of the Black Dagger Brotherhood's series.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was sexy, romantic and open. Ms Ward was not afraid of write about two men love.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Blay met Qhuinn at the bar.


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

    It is never too late to start a new life.


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you Ms Ward, this book made me fall in love with the Brotherhood again.

    I love books, but busy mom that doesnt have time to read them. So having audible has been a blessing to me. Shower or car listening is great

    "Finally!"

    I had been waiting for this one to come out and now am waiting inpatiently for the next one.

    I've enjoyed all the B.D.B. books, there are times of surprise, times of laughter, and always enjoyable love.

    When I started this series I was doing it to fill in time waiting for another book I like, but after each one I had to continue onto the next, always wanting more. So I definitely would suggest this book to others, ecspecially if you were/are a Twilight series fan.

    The best part of this book for me was that J.R. Ward, took such risk in this one. There's been much contraversey in the news lately about theses subjects(I won't ruine it for you on what it is) and I was so glad to see someone express the the loving side of it. And it was great to have the diversity.

    Thank you J.R. Ward!
