    "LOVED IT!!"

    I didn't think I would love any story as much as Zsadist and Bella's story until John Matthew and Xhex. This whole story blew me away. I even liked the creative way Murhder was introduced. Blay and Saxton are a much better match than Blay and Quinn and I'm glad that the pairing wasn't forced simply because of proximity. I'll looking forward to Payne and Manny's story.

    I was hanging on Jim Frangione's every word as always.

    "Everything I hoped for"

    I bought the book to read but I'd been waiting too long for this book. Being too busy to sit down and read I went and bought the audio as well and I'm very pleased. This book was everything I'd hoped it would be, and more.

    "Loved it!!!"

    Once again J.R. Ward delivers an addicting story that is sexy, heart-wrenching and action packed. I loved the Darius twist. I will be re-reading the entire series all over again!

    "Lover Mine.. best of series"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook. Its intense, heart wreching, lovely, and sexy. Several questions are answered and some existing storylines continue.

    Xhex and John's story is the most complete and heart warming love story of the series so far.

    "Another great story in the series"

    I always wanted John Matthew to have a pretty, warm, nurturing, feminen love interest so I have to admit I wasn't thrilled at the prospect of the bulked up Xhex with the mannish haircut as a potential partner for John. I knew J. R. Ward would have a high hurdle to leap in order for me to accept this pairing. Well, she flew over it with room to spare--and then some. Not only did I accept Xhex and John as a potential couple, I came to earnestly root for them to find some way to be together.

    In this book, Ward interjects flashbacks of Darius's history with Tohrment and includes a seemingly unconnected story of paranormal investigators in South Carolina between sections of the main storyline and then finds a way to connect all the seemingly unrelated storylines. We don't get all the relevant information we are interested in and one glaringly obvious aspect of who John is never gets specifically revealed, but the story reveals and resolves a satisfying amount of information. My main complaint is that it should have been twice as long and contained more of everyone and everything! OK, so that isn't practical... but waiting another year for more of the story is going to be tohrture!

    One point for those to whom it matters, there is a subplot involving Blay and his love for Qhuin and Blay's initial involvement with Saxton, Qhuin's male cousin. I've always really liked Blay and have wanted good things for him, but never thought Qhuin was one of them. His emotional journey is well handled and while his sexuality isn't in any way concealed, the scenes are never more explicit than I could handle. Generally, I prefer my romance between a male and a female but find I do care enough about Blay to follow him as far as Ward took it. Still, I'm not hoping for a whole book dedicated to a Blay and Qhuin coupling.

    Lover Mine is a welcome continuation of the series in Ward's incomparable prose style and worth every minute.

    JR Ward is the best, and this book is one of her best. I love the narrator, he's perfect for this series.

    "Sexy, Steamy Vampires"
    Would you listen to Lover Mine again? Why?

    yes
    Because when I find a series that I enjoy, I know that I will always come back to it to get the same enjoyment all over again. Good Books are timeless, you never get enough.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    No favorite characters..........well, I take that back, they are all my favorites.


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

    Yes, I love his voice, it isn't monotonous so I stay awake to listen.


    Any additional comments?

    I've listened to this series out of order, but that doesn't seem to affect the story any. I love series like that because you never know when you find just one and it is part 3 or something. You always get a full story in each part, not really dependent on the others to make it whole

    "Gay Porn"

    While I jumped into this series in the middle, I was floored by the language and the homosexual content, and language. I imagine I will be painted a homophobic for my comments but I still reserve the right to choose my entertainment content. The constant use of offensive language, poorly developed plot and derivative urban prattle are not my idea of a good read, or listen. I wish, wish someone in the 47 reviews had mentioned the language or content.. Sorry JR Ward I thought I would like your work.. Nope.
