    "Loved it!"

    I love the entire Black Dagger Series. I think the narrator does an amazing job with all of the voices he does....any there are many voices. He is so good that you forget it is one person reading the story to you. I do love the individual stories of all the brothers. Great book, great series, great narrator and great author.....what more could you ask for...keep up the good work...love it đź’‹

    "Boring and overwritten"
    What would have made Lover Enshrined better?

    I have loved this series until I started reading this book. Usually I do not put my Kindle down when the story is good. This book I had to force myself to finish.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    The next in this series . I am hoping this book was a fluke and the series will still capture my interest.

    Story
    "A ROMANCE THAT IS ACTUALLY A STORY WITH DEPTH!"
    If you could sum up Lover Enshrined in three words, what would they be?

    Author can write! Okay thats three words but what I mean is "JR Ward knows how to write a story!"


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Hard to pick...so I won't


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

    I think the narrator it good at making the characters individuals.


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

    I wouldn't make a movie it would ruin the book(s)


    Any additional comments?

    I read some of the reviews and got a bit scared I would not enjoy this book as much as the others but I have to say I am glad I didn't let my fear stop me. I love that JR Ward actually builds a story, each book has added more and more to the story. It is not just hot and heavy sex but actually has substance, not saying there is no sex but rather that is not the only thing her books are about. You get to know and understand the world the characters live in, their friends, families and coworkers, making the story have depths. I love reading romance stories that have substance and this book along with the others that I have read, give me that. I think reading them in order is really important as they help you understand the whole picture.

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

    Yes, if you are reading the series it will uncover and explain new characters.


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

    This book goes more into the other characters in the series. Giving you a taste of each one, but it did make me lust for more love scenes. This book was definitely not as much of a romance as the others.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The teaser between Blay and Quinn


    Any additional comments?

    This book overall was good. It's uncovered new characters and answer questions about old characters. The Arthur prepares you for new series of books to come. But this book has less romance than the other books, leaving you for lusting for more romance.

    If you could sum up Lover Enshrined in three words, what would they be?

    Dark, Soul Searching, Hauntingly Fantastic


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Phury was a great male lead. His whole journey is so sad and seems like the whole world is against him. Too many times I wanted to reach out and hug him


    What about Jim Frangione’s performance did you like?

    The performance was great, engaging and soothing.


    Any additional comments?

    I hated that Phury''s journey was so raw and depressing but he came out on the other side a better man and that is the mark of a true hero. I loved it

    Story
    "Second Time is a Charm"

    When I first read this Black Dagger Brotherhood book a few years back, I did not like it nearly as much as the others. Recently, I decided to LISTEN to it and BOY am I glad I did. The complexity of Phury's struggle, the number of events that transpire to evolve in future BDB books, Jim Frangione's excellent narration and feel for the brothers, the dramatic change in the whole Chosen system and the ultimate battle between good and evil are at their best in this book. I was not wild about Cormia (the female focus) but that's a small price to pay for such a rich and complex tale. No sense in going into great detail...it's a fabulous listen.

    "The smarmiest volume yet!"
    What disappointed you about Lover Enshrined?

    Coitus interruptus (sp) three times?? Really? Phury's Wizard was soooo tiresome after about his second appearance.


    Spoiler alert!!!



    The sunshine and butterflies ending with the Chosen at Revenge's camp a month later, fighting to use the vacuum? Puh-LEEZ.

    Phury's Wizard got pretty tiresome.


    Would you ever listen to anything by J. R. Ward again?

    Yes. I plan to finish the series. This one filled in the story.


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

    At least one of the "almost" love scenes between Phury and Cormia.

    "Wonderful Series"
    What made the experience of listening to Lover Enshrined the most enjoyable?

    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!

    Story
    "A lot going on"
    What made the experience of listening to Lover Enshrined the most enjoyable?

    The narrator really makes this story. For some reason this story wasn't quite as interesting as some of the other books. Without the narrator I would have never tried another on of J.R.Ward books.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Corrines transformation. She always want to be an individual and she gets her chance and helps others also get there's. The least interesting was Phury's addiction. I'm glad he gets a hold of it.


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

    Yes, I have heard Frangione narration, and he makes the series, because his voice brings dimension to the story.


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

    The moment that I thought was important was when Quinn was made John Matthews protector and his life was spared after supposedly killing Lash.


    Any additional comments?

    The Best Vampire series.

    "Love it"
    Would you listen to Lover Enshrined again? Why?

    Yes. Great story but twisted in a way, keeps you on the edge of every chapter


    What did you like best about this story?

    How it's not from one person perspective.


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

    All, he changes his voice just slightly when he's talking for different characters. He does a great job.


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

    I laughed and cried, I noticed that if the character was upset and emotional that I was too.
