Publisher's Summary

The hot new novel in the Black Dagger Brotherhood by the number-one New York Times best-selling author.

John Matthew has come a long way since he was found living among humans, his vampire nature unknown. Taken in by The Brotherhood, no one could guess what his true history was-or his true identity.

Xhex has long steeled herself against the attraction to John Matthew. Until fate intervenes and she discovers that love, like destiny, is inevitable.

Keep chilled: listen to more titles in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series.

    "An Amazing Story!!"
    Where does Lover Mine rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is one of my favorites in this series thus far. The author has a mind blowing way of telling a story. She writes both male and female characters beautifully It has been awe-inspiring to watch characters grow and evolve. Her catchy descriptions and cool way of having the characters speak and think keep you laughing and intrigued. Ex. Plastic fantastic (my favorite!),hammering the hootch, cry baby emo, chickin' out, running man impression, little lesser and lady gaga gig. Just to name a few!!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Lash in this story it was awesome to see how he was deteriorating. And John Matthew for how he has been developing from the earlier books.


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

    He is an excellent narrator. Although it would be nice if they could use a woman for the female characters. It would make it even better.


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

    Lover of Mine


    Any additional comments?

    Yes! I look forward to the next books.

    "John Matthew gets his due"

    Yet again, JR Ward has crafted an award winning story of the BDB. Every book gets me primed for the next. This one was intense and emotional, and oh so incredibly good. What's not to love about John Matthew? This brother will completely steal your heart. Everything about him says he is a 'male of worth'. I loved it.

    I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.

    "John Matthew"

    John Matthew finally gets his girl. The one thing I do enjoy about this series is the continuing story of most of all the BDB characters. We keep riding along on this wave of intrigue, danger and lust. One book rolls right into the next and it's just awesome. It's a no brainer why I have to come back to this series and visit my favorite characters.

    "Overall, a good story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I've enjoyed the Black Dagger Brotherhood series, and enjoyed watching John Matthew's story develop in this sequel. To be honest, though, the constant sex is getting a bit boring, and I keep skipping over those sections to get to the rest of the story. It was interesting and titillating for the first few books, but by somewhere around book 4, I really was more interested in the stories than in the sexual exploits. I think the stories would be enhanced with more focus on events, actions, and interactions of characters outside of the bedroom.


    If you’ve listened to books by J. R. Ward before, how does this one compare?

    This was a decent read, compared to the other books, although I felt like there was more focus on the sex than on truly developing the characters. The stories are starting to feel a bit thin, and like they're more about who is going to have sex with whom, rather than truly exploring the essence of the characters.

    95% of the time, when I read, I read to escape. Even still, there has to be a basis of "believability" to the story-line.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Less filler


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    ...finally; meaning the story went on and on....just tell the stink'n story; quit stuffing it with filler!


    What about Jim Frangione’s performance did you like?

    Good


    Any additional comments?

    Lots of filler; I understand setting the scene but to go on and on and on and repeat and repeat and repeat is unnecessary.

    "Worn Out!"

    I loved these big tough guys in the beginning but by Book 8 it is too much of the same with too much of the same plot and dialogue. I have given up on the series.

    "I think I must be tired of the series"

    This one was not so great. I had trouble finishing it and that's even with fast forwarding through the sex scenes.

    The plot jumped around between three or four different story lines and was not difficult to follow, but it wasn't enjoyable the way it kept skipping around. The characters of John Matthew and Xhex weren't true to their characters in previous novels at all. A reviewer on Amazon said, "Complicated subplots" and it's true.

    Jim Frangione is a decent narrator but there were HUGE gaps in time when he read and a few times I could hear the director or someone else in the background. That was actually kinda cool in a way though.

    I think I'm going to stop listening to this series now. It's just not enjoyable to me anymore.

    "Limp storyline and awkward narrating"

    Let me first say that I was a HUGE fan of BDB before "Avenged." "Avenged" just seemed a little too sappy for me and "Mine" has followed right in its footsteps. Aside from the multiple plots (some of which didn't go anywhere, i.e. the haunted house, huh) between Quinn being completely out of character with Blaylock and Ward's attempt to sound cool by overdoing the slang that originally attracted me to this series, it took me FOREVER to get through this book. I don't discount the fact that it may have been Jim Frangione's narrating skills being completely unsuitable for this series. Frangione is a great narrator but not for the BDB. I even bought Vishous' story on sale (which I absolutely loved when I read) and didn't enjoy it because of Frangione. I think I'll wait to read Payne's story. Luckily I read a lot or this book may have killed BDB for me. I gave three stars because I see the potential in the written word but not the spoken one this time

    I like Jack Reacher style characters regardless of setting. Put them in outer space, in modern America, in a military setting, on an alien planet... no worries. Book has non moralistic vigilante-justice? Sign me up! (oh, I read urban fantasy, soft and hard sci-fi, trashy vampire and zombie novels too)

    "Best one in the series!"

    Okay... first thing, if you haven't read the rest of the series, do so now. And if you *have* read the rest of this series, you should be reading Lover Mine right now, not this review. Seriously. I'm not kidding. Go... now... get this book and read it.

    It's a great story, with great characters (though it's much much better if you've read the other books 'cause the characters are fully fleshed by this installment). If you like vampires, sex, drama, suspense, and butt-kicking justice, you'll like this book. Period.

    If you don't like any of that, you wouldn't have read any others in this series so won't be interested in reading this one either.

    Otherwise, if you liked any of the BDB books, this is, by far, the best of the bunch. The narration is excellent.

    "Exciting Series BDB from Book 1 - 8"

    I've never been interested in a vampire series until these books came out. I like everything about these books, and have a hard time picking a favorite. I have only bought the audio on the last two, but had to buy the books too. I have reread every book that is how much I enjoy this series. Kudos for J.D. Ward, looking forward to the 9th in the series and hopefully many more.
