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.

    "jumps around to much"
    Would you try another book from J. R. Ward and/or Jim Frangione?

    yes, but this one jumped around to much, hard to keep up with the storyline.


    Has Lover at Last turned you off from other books in this genre?

    possibly


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Jim Frangione?

    yes


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    would have been nice to kinda know the premise earlier on...seems to take forever to get to the point of the book, other than its about Quinn.

    "Don't miss this series!"
    Where does Lover at Last rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I rank the J. R. Ward Black Dagger Brotherhood series as some of the best audio books you can own! I love each and every story in the series and can't wait to hear what happens next! I would rank these books at the top of my list for "re-listen"!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    It is so hard to pick just one character as my favorite, but if I really have to choose it would be King Wrath! In each and every book he has been a powerful, strong, driving force to the brothers. But if you really get into the books, you will find yourself pulling for each and every brother in the series. Even the supporting characters find a place in your heart.


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

    Always Wrath! His voice seems to come to life when he reads as the king.


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

    I have to admit. I didn't know how I would feel listening to the love scenes between two men. Ms. Ward did an excellent job with all the love scenes, and I found myself wanting these two, ( Qhuinn & Blaylock), to get together. The other part that got to me was when Layla goes out to the meadow and Xcor comes to see her. I am hoping he can somehow get out of the wrong side of life and get together with Layla.


    Any additional comments?

    If you buy these books, start from the first book and work your way through. They are well worth the price and will not disappoint you in any way!

    "Amazing! Totally worth it!"
    What made the experience of listening to Lover at Last the most enjoyable?

    I appreciate how J.R. Ward incorporated new characters and they all have a meaning and a part to add to the story line in a way that makes sense. I can't wait to find out what happens with Asale and Sola! What happens to Luke, and Leila, Trez and Selena! I really hope there is a book 12 and that is comes out soon!

    "Great Story!"
    Would you listen to Lover at Last again? Why?

    Since reading the book, I have listened to it 3 times! Growth is growth and love is love. For me this story has it all. Admittedly, I was somewhat apprehensive about guy on guy action, but all of that is second or maybe third to the story. Ward does a great job of making you want to see these two come together.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The best about this story is how Ward weaves the main story with the inter mingling's of the stories of the others. She has a way of keeping you informed that life is happening around the main character story.


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

    I like Jim Frangione's performance. For me, his voice seems well suited for this series.


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

    Ward makes you laugh and cry and cheer. A miracle happens and a strong love blooms.


    Any additional comments?

    While you can understand the book without reading the entire series. . . its oh so much better to read the series from the beginning. It allows you to grow with the brotherhood as they grow and evolve.

    Wish there was a follow up book, just to follow up on all the characters. I think another one is coming out. These vampires are hot!

    When it comes to books, I don't think fiction always as to be fiction, especially in the grip of a gifted writer.

    "I SWOON FOR BDB, true? AWESOME..WORTH THE WAIT!"

    I don't think I have the words. There isn't another series out that truly compares to this one. It's an epic saga dream for the paranormal fan … and it really is EPIC! This edition (book 11) was worth every one of the seconds I watched the clock tick down until it was available. I'm sure I would have paid twice as much. Blay and Qhuinn FINALLY! If you had to stop and read this before hitting download, you my friend are going to need a plan! I suggest… count your money, get a full nights rest, then download book 1. You might as well be prepared to glue your ear buds in. I advise you to pace yourself, because you will not want it to end…. even eleven books later.

    "It just keeps getting better!"
    What made the experience of listening to Lover at Last the most enjoyable?

    By the time I got to the 11th book in this series it felt like all the Brothers were good friends and my emotional attachments to them made this one of the most enjoyable book in the series.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I'm going to go with the obvious, Quinn. Especially because he save the life of my favorite Brother.


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

    He did the whole series and I think he was an excellent choice. He, like the author, keep it pretty consistent.


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

    First time in all my life I ever got hot over a male on male sex scene. Maybe it is because this love affair had been building for several books. Truthfully all the books in this series made me laugh and cry.


    Any additional comments?

    Such a great series and so well written. The writing style is fresh and different for this genre, she has a real solid point of view and every character is super cool. You know I can't say that every series that I have read, by whoever, continually puts out a good product after 11 books but I can surely say this about The Black Dagger Brotherhood. I can't wait for the next book in the series.

    "What's all the fuss about and high ratings?"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    My personal belief is the book is way too long, story line since beginning of series has bogged down with the last 3 books.As far as the sex, way too much description of each and every act by the consenting partners no matter if is male with male or male with female. Give me a break, this is a adult series and as such we don't have to read about each and every movement or breath a human body makes during intimate relationships, please enough is enough.The narrator is wonderful hope he is never replaced. Will give the next book in the series a try, but should it follow along the same footsteps as this book it will be the end of the line for me with this series.


    What could J. R. Ward have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Way less sex, fewer story lines and more development of the story which deals with the many problems the brothers are facing that threatens their race.


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

    Yes. Never disappointed by his performance.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Lover at Last?

    Too many to list.

    "It's about time"

    I have been following this series since the beginning. I have been rooting for Blay and Quinn for quite sometime. I spent have the book yelling in my head at the characters and the rest laughing. I don't want to say that the book was funny because it wasn't. It was just the giggling little girl thing. I loved this book and if you like this series you will love this book. my only question is... What happens next.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    When the Blackdagger Brotherhood was recommended to me I thought I would not J.R. Ward's Fallen Angels series is very good. I expected it to be funnier after reading The Blackdagger Brotherhood, where the angel is hilarious.like it, based on title alone. I couldn't be more wrong! I instantly fell in love with the books!
