Rehvenge has always kept his distance from the Brotherhood even though his sister is married to a member, for he harbors a deadly secret that could make him a huge liability in their war against the lessers As plots within and outside of the Brotherhood threaten to reveal the truth about Rehvenge, he turns to the only source of light in his darkening world, Ehlena, a vampire untouched by the corruption that has its hold on him and the only thing standing between him and eternal destruction

surprising considering Rehv and the nasty business with his blackmailerIt s simple I don t think you should date anyone Rehv moved in even closer, until he could see the flecks of gold in her eyes But I m not just anyoneWow I think I ve found my new favorite BDB book Besides Z s, he will ALWAYS be 1 My first read was great, I loved it, but it didn t stand out from the others On my second read Amazing One of my favorite books EVER, not just the BDB It s totally surprising considering Rehv and the nasty business with his blackmailer, but I SOOO loved him I loved the whole book All the side characters were amazing except Lash, stupid moronic idiot who needs to DIE, ASAP Anyway D Loved it The storyWith most of the glymera dead or hidden, there is a fight for power in the vampire world between those who are left behind, and their main obstacle is their king, Wrath.Only four Brothers are left that are able to fight, which forces Wrath to get back on the streets and do some fighting on his own, even though it s forbidden because he is King.Rehvenge is approached by a council member who wants to eliminate Wrath.He has to deal with his club, his monthly visit to his blackmailer, his illness that needsandtreatments, and now he has to decide where his loyalties lie.One night at the clinic, waiting for his dopamine shots, he talks with his nurse, Ehlena She isn t afraid of Rehv like all the others are, and is intrigued by him, but she knows that they are from two totally different worlds, so she refuses him when his flirtations get too high.When Rehv s past and double life threaten the people he loves, he will be forced to make a difficult decisionAll I know is, life is too short not to come back here and be with you like this again Life is just too short, and I like being with you too much for me to give a crap about anything other than having another moment like this Rehvenge s chest swelled as he stared at her Ehlena Yeah Don t take this the wrong way She drew in a deep breath and he saw her bare shoulders tighten Okay I ll try not to You keep showing up here Being who you are There was a pause I m going to fall in love with youThe story Loved it It was dark, it was f ed up, emotional and full of surprises, with some action as well Just fantastic The Brotherhood was forced to make some changes, as well as Wrath We get to see into Rehv s universe, how it all works, and what he must do to protect his own.The battle in the end was great, left with a little cliffie for the next book.The characters Even though this is Rehv s book, this one is focused on twocouples, Wrath Beth and John Xhex They don t get THAT much page time, but they re there and we see their relationships progressing, some forward, some backwards Wrath Beth Wrath has been going out fighting alone, without anyone s knowledge, and that s something that will drive them apart when Beth finds out He is dealing with headaches and view spoiler loss of vision hide spoiler , and later on the attempt of murder by the council.Loved how it all went down, I felt bad for Wrath and his adapting to the inevitable, but in the end, it really worked John Xhex Ahh they have some tough times, those two John just goes through one bad thing after another, and in the end, he breaks It was so difficult to read, especially the scene view spoiler after she leaves him and he realises that he s always been alone and that he doesn t want anysuffering He pretty much turns emotionless, hide spoiler and I totally felt bad for him.Tohrment he s practically a living corpse He doesn t want to get better and live, even with all the support from his fellow Brothers, John and Lassiter The moment when he starts to wake up Loved it iAm and Trez I don t know if they ll have their books or not, but we did learnabout them in this book, and I really wouldn t mind readingehehehehheehMuhrder is mentioned as Xhex s ex, but if I remember correctly, there ll be someof him in one of the next booksThe cliffie It has nothing to do with the main couple, so don t worry, they get their HEA just fine It sof an intro into the next book, so my suggestion is, have Lover Mine prepared when you read this one You ll want to jump right at it after you re doneHe seemed so fragile as he gave himself up to her, and she realized that if anyone tried to hurt him, even though he couldthan take care of himself, she would commit murder To protect him, she would kill.The conviction was as solid as the bones beneath her skin Even the powerful needed protection sometimesEhlena is a nurse who works at Havers clinic She s known Rehv for some time, but has always avoided him It takes one night of outrageous flirting from Rehv, and she can t get him out of her head.That of course, is not a good thing for Ehlena, because they re from totally different worlds, she is poor and looking after her sick father, while Rehv is rich, and part of the highest aristocracy.She doesn t want anything to do with him, but can t help but be worried when she realises his wounds are infected.After deciding to help him get better, even if it s something he doesn t want, she goes to his flat and they have dinner.Soon after that, they get closer and closer, and eventually fall in love 3She was lonely, too, and in the same way he was.Her emotional grid had the same footprint his did, Xhex s did, and Trez s and iAm s did Her feelings were surrounded by the disconnected void of someone separated from her tribe Living among others, but essentially apart from it all A shutout, a castaway, one who had been expelledShe goes to my list of favorite females from this series I really really liked her, and the surprising thing is, she s totally normal She isn t a kick ass, and doesn t have a personality that jumps out of a page, but I liked her for the person she was, and just by the fact that she and Rehv complement each other perfectly They are the same, both are lonely, and looking at life from the outside, both wanting somethingbut they know they can t get it.She constantly thinks she s not good enough for Rehv, and he does the same thing with her D Just have to say, my favorite scene with her is that quote just below her name, when she s all protective of Rehv Totally loved it, because he needs someone like that in his life, he s always done the protecting, and at a terrible cost The ending Well I kinda get that it would all be a shock and that a normal person would react that way, but still I felt worse for Rehv When she came to the Brotherhood mansion awesome She showed she had a stronger side of her character and what she was willing to do for RehvGod, there were not enough showers in the world for him to be clean enough to talk to Ehlena Not enough soap or bleach or steel wool As he pictured her in her pristine nurse s uniform, her strawberry blond hair back in a neat ponytail, her white shoes unscuffed, he knew that if he ever touched her he d stain her for lifeRehvenge has a dark secret that he must hide from everyone, and that costs him every month His blackmailer demands payment in rubies and sex in order to keep quiet.He hates the times when he has to whore himself for her silence, but he loves the fact that he can hurt her that way The monthly visits are slowly eating him away, making him sick, and Rehv s lost the will to live, he is indifferent to everything that happens to him, until he meets Ehlena.She wants to make him better, even though he has no intention of healing himself He is forced to take dopamine every day, to keep his other side from appearing, and that leaves him without any sense of touch or feeling in his body at all He starts a relationship with Ehlena, even though he can t have sex while he s on medication, but to pleasure her is enough for him.When there s a threat to those he loves, he is forced to make a tough callNo She couldn t see him like this Shit, she couldn t see him ever again He was filthy A filthy, dirty whore who let someone he hated touch him and suck on him and use him, and force him to do the same to herLove Him Definitely one of my favorite BDB characters For me, the whole thing with the princess was UBER disturbing It just feels like rape, and Rehv s the one being raped, even though he s the one doing the f cking.Terrible scenes, and afterwards when he breaks down the shower and everything So, so, so tough to read His moments with Ehlena are almost the only pure ones he has in his life, and he constantly feels like he ll contaminate her and make her dirty if she s with him.The dinner scene That was so lovely He was sweet and flirty and I just loved him there The smexy times were great even though there weren t that many between them Now, the tough scenes I cried a couple of times First when he made the tough decision That was so sad to read, view spoiler watching him saying goodbye hide spoiler And after that, the scene with the view spoiler bugs hide spoiler Oh My God Terrible The ending Yep cried a bit there too Very emotional So yeah Don t know whatto say except, I totally and utterly love Rehvenge 3I m not into that either Oh, not at all He was a whore with standards kinky crap was okay only if you were forced into it Fuck the consensual shit V and his mate were into Yeah, cuz that was just wrong.Christ, he was beneath herMy favorite quotes from other charactersGod, how he hated the lonely look on her face You can t know how sorry I am Beth reached up and touched his jaw I hear it in your voice He took her hand and placed it over his heart I m nothing without you Not true She stepped out of his hold You are the king No matter who your shellan is, you are everything You know, he said, this is why I love you so much Her tone was heartbreakingly warm What do you mean You don t ask me to go inside because it s cold You just want to make it easier for me to be where I want to stand You re okay, Qhuinn, you know that You re tight She clapped him on the shoulder, then headed for her office thinking the king had been smart in the choice of ahstrux nohstrum for John Qhuinn was a perverted fucker, but he was a straight up killer, and she was glad he was the one watching her boy.Watching John Matthew, she meant.Because he wasn t her boy In the slightest Just as Xhex winced and went to leave, he looked up into the security camera Whether he knew it was there or whether that was just where his eyes ended up, it was hard to know.Shit His face was grim, his jaw set hard, his stare soulless in a way that saddened her.Xhex tried not to see the change in him for what it was and failed She had done this to him Maybe she wasn t the only reason he d turned to stone, but she was a big part of it.He looked away.She turned away As he got to the door, he looked at her for the first time view spoiler since she d left him in her bed hide spoiler There was no flicker of recognition or memory or anything in his face The blue stare that had once sparkled was now opaque John Her voice cracked slightly I m really sorry With deliberate care, he extended his middle finger at her and leftI was worried you weren t coming home, Tohr said loudly.Qhuinn and Blay halted Rhage and Lassiter shut up Mary s and Rhoda s voices filled the void.John barely paused as he signed, This isn t home It s a house And I need a place to stay.Off to the left, a glowing Oscar statue of a guy stood tall in combats, his blond and black hair making him look like an eighties headbanger looking for a backup band Lassiter the fallen angel didn t seem any less fierce than the Brothers, however Maybe it was his piercings Or the fact that his eyes were all white Fuck it, the guy s vibe was just hard coreI want Lassiter s book ASAP

    Excellent, just excellent JR Ward is back with a vengeance For anyone who was disappointed with the previous two books in the BDB series, I urge you not to give up on it Lover Avenged is every bit as good a book as the first four of the series It s got everything that you could want, starting with an outstanding hero and heroine in nightclub owner drug lord Rehvenge and nurse Ehlena It s a testimony to the author s writing skills that she can make a drug lord, mobster pimp into one of he Excellent, just excellent JR Ward is back with a vengeance For anyone who was disappointed with the previous two books in the BDB series, I urge you not to give up on it Lover Avenged is every bit as good a book as the first four of the series It s got everything that you could want, starting with an outstanding hero and heroine in nightclub owner drug lord Rehvenge and nurse Ehlena It s a testimony to the author s writing skills that she can make a drug lord, mobster pimp into one of her most endearing heroes ever I absolutely adored Rehvenge, and I never thought I would say that His character has always been so so for me But now that JR Ward has fleshed out his character, and we learn the WHY of who he is and why he s done the things he has, I just could not resist him I totally fell for the mohawked, sable fur wearing hardass with a heart of gold By the end of the book, he proved that he truly was a male of worth.As for Ehlena, well, she may be my favorite heroine of the whole series She was brave, compassionate, a caregiver for her mentally sick father, and most of all, forgiving I wanted her to have everything I thought she deserved And she took no crap from Rehvenge But when she broke up with him it just about killed me, and I wasn t too happy with her It was funny because when they first started out she didn t think she was good enough for him, but at the end the tables turned and Rehvenge insisted he wasn t good enough for her Clearly these two belonged together and were perfect for each other They are one of my favorite couples of the entire series.And Ward brought the romance back Not with just Ehlena and Rehvenge, but as an added bonus the reader gets a renewed romance between Wrath and Beth And both romances were sexy and super hot no skimping on the details either Whew, Beth and Wrath had one scene that took them under the desk and across the floor And Rehvenge well, he was one generous lover is all I can say without giving away spoilers For fans of Lora Leigh s Breeds series, you ll be interested to know that there s some common ground between Rehvenge and the Breeds About the plot it s pretty simple It starts out four months after the previous book, and Wrath is secretly fighting again, while dealing with an increased loss in his vision Being the King, fighting s a big no no, but the ranks of the Brotherhood are depleted with Tohr gone and Phury involved with the Chosen And the lessers have been on a raid all summer, killing and stealing from the glymera, and it looks like they re making serious inroads in their war with the vampires So Wrath is keeping secrets, which isn t good for his marriage And when Beth finds out she s mad about the lying, and that places a serious strain on their relationship Add to that a plot to get rid of as in kill and replace the King by some of the glymera, and it s no wonder Wrath has one giant headache all the time.Then we have nightclub owner, drug lord, and secret half breed sympath Rehvenge, brother of Bella, who s married to the Brother Zsadist Rehvenge s identity as part sympath is a closely guarded secret and it comes with a host of medical complications in order to suppress that side of him if it s revealed he could be banished to a colony for these sociopaths Rehvenge is getting blackmailed from a couple of people who know his true identity, and one of them wants him to go in on a plot to murder Wrath Although they re not exactly friends, can he do that to Wrath and the Brothers Then Rehv meets a nurse at Dr Havers clinic, the beautiful Ehlena, and sparks start to fly Rehv is so drawn to her, but he can t be honest with her If she finds out who what he is and what he has to do once a month with the vile scorpion princess one of the most disgusting villains ever straight out of a Stephen King horror novel , she would be repulsed When it looks like destiny is leading Rehv on a clear path that can t include Ehlena, will he be strong enough to give up the one woman who brings light and hope to his increasingly lonely life Fans of the series will be happy to know that almost all the characters have at least a cameo appearance, except I don t recall Marissa or Cormia mentioned except in passing But no matter, all the Brothers are back, with their wisecracks and idiosyncrasies, including Tohr, who finally looks like he ll be getting his act together I loved the interaction between Tohr and Lassiter, the fallen angel who helped rescue him and sticks around a while with the Brothers He has some of the funniest moments in the book his fascination with The Mary Tyler Moore Show and the Bette Midler movie Beaches and the brothers reaction to that had me laughing out loud There also is a mention of the character of Muhrder, who has a connection to Xhex which I m sure we ll hearabout , a brief reappearance of Payne who has an encounter with Wrath , Lash who s back with a vengeance and is crucial to the plot and an adorable new character, George.There is lots of humor in the book, which helps relieve some of the tension that builds up in the plot I laughed out loud many times for example, when Butch called Wrath Rapunzel due to his long hair , or when Wrath questioned the effectiveness of a bullet proof vest he was wearing because of how light it was, and V suggested he strap a garage door, or maybe a car, to his chest There were LOTS of moments like that, and clearly, the brothers have not lost their sense of humor.We also get to see where the series is headed with the new blood John Matthew, Quinn, and Blay John Matthew and his obsession, tough girl Xhex finally hook up, but sadly, it s not all it could be These two have a lot of growing up to do, because they spend most of their time in the book hurting themselves and each other There s waythan meets the eye with Xhex though, and the author gives us just a hint about her troubled past She was a hard character to love, especially when she hurt John Matthew I wanted to scratch her eyes out But then asandof her background was revealed, I felt sorry for her and all that she went through in her life She is a big part of the plot in this book, and because of where the story takes her, I m sure she will be in the next book Her situation and her relationship with John is clearly left unresolved.This is a very long book over 500 pages , but it moves along so fluidly you won t notice the length There were no spots where I was tempted to skip passages I wanted to read every detail, although some were very gory What Xhex does to some creep who murdered his girlfriend yuk There s quite a few plots going at one time, yet it never gets confusing Frustrating, sometimes, when Ward leaves you hanging to switch to another plot just as things are heating up romantically with one of the couples, but that just makes you want to read faster And the conclusion You ll think maybe JR Ward had a little help from Stephen King, is all I ll say My, what an imagination.As you can see, I loved this book This ranks right up there with my favorites of the series, and I think Ward is in the groove again I found this one extremely hard to put down, didn t want it to end, yet had to know the ending Wrath and Rehvenge struggle with but finally accept their destinies, and it helps that they each have their true loves by their sides I can t wait to see where JR Ward takes us with this series there s lotsto tell 5 Big Stars

    I don t even know where to begin with this review Like so many of Ward s other books, this book consumed my thoughts Even when I wasn t reading it, I was pondering the interactions between the characters, hoping for the best, and dreading the worst that I felt was coming I don t know how the WARDen does it, but my love for this series and her writing grows evenall consuming with each book I do know that she understands the power of evoking emotions in the reader I can t read any of he I don t even know where to begin with this review Like so many of Ward s other books, this book consumed my thoughts Even when I wasn t reading it, I was pondering the interactions between the characters, hoping for the best, and dreading the worst that I felt was coming I don t know how the WARDen does it, but my love for this series and her writing grows evenall consuming with each book I do know that she understands the power of evoking emotions in the reader I can t read any of her books without getting my emotions involved in the process.I loved Rehv before I read this book I love him evenafter reading this book Rehv is a great example of why antiheroes are so compelling to me He is a mass of contradictions and not predictable in the least He is so sexy, so powerful, yet so vulnerable at the same time He s no boy scout, but his does have honor and duty He sacrificed himself again and again for those that he loved, even allowing some of them to think the worst of him Inside he bore his loneliness like a burden he felt he deserved I was glad that he had two families, his mother and sister, and Xhex, Trez, and i.am I didn t like the drugs, the violence, and the prostitution, but I could understand why Rehv and Xhex inhabited that dark world They felt that this was the only place they belonged Fortunately Rehv also has the tether of his family, although he has to live a lie for many, many years Xhex doesn t even have that The sympaths were as fascinating I thought they would be Even though this book delved into that world, I d be perfectly happy to readabout them They manage to exude a menace that jumps off the page as I read about them.Like most outstanding books, the scenes were vivid like a movie in my mind I love the realism mixed with magic and the supernatural I am in awe of the WARDen s imagination She has taken an hip upscale urban motif, mixed with the culture and world of an ancient race, and created several love and relationship stories and put them all together into a delicious confection that is this book But it s the three dimensional characters that really seduce me Even the casual characters manage to grab my notice and my interest I am so glad that Rehv found Ehlena It was great seeing such a tough, isolated guy fall so hard and fast and give his heart away The interactions between Rehv and Ehlena was sweet and romantic, but erotic at the same time He really knows how to treat a woman with tenderness, to cherish her as though she is the only woman in the world At times, I was worried that Ehlena didn t deserve his love and devotion, but she proved true and worthy of it Ehlena is one tough, steadfast woman Just what Rehv needs And Rhev is what she needs as well My heart can rest in peace that Rehv does have the love and acceptance he always secretly yearned for I am happy that he has a deep, loving relationship with Bella, and is like a brother to the Brotherhood It was also nice to seeof Wrath and Beth interacting As they were the first couple, some of my memories have faded So reading about their relationship and how it has remained deep and true was really great What the WARDen has done with Wrath was so well executed and felt right although some might feel that it was a dark way to go.John Matthew is at a really dark point in this book, and I vacillated between despair and rage at what he is doing to himself But I am so excited to read his book when it comes out I wish it was coming out sooner I can t wait to see him come into his own and claim his shellan in Xhex.Xhex is my girl I love the woman She is all over it I enjoyed getting perspective on her emotions and her thoughts Her loyalty to Rhev is unquestionable, and I know there isto learn about that, as well as her past I felt her sorrow as she tried to push JM away although she clearly loves and is as drawn to him as he is to her The next book in the series is going to be awesome as we see what transpires with Xhex and JM and follow along from how things ended in this book.The whole Lash situation promises to grow evenenthralling At first I dismissed him as an immature bully But he is proving to be a formidable antagonist The way things will go down with him is going to be something else He s evil as all get out, but he s a fascinating character I think he will definitely prove to be the supervillain in this series And boy did he go there at the end of this book Let s just say it s going to be on in the next book.It was nice seeing the other brothers, but like the greedy BDB fan that I am, I wantedof them Short stories about other brothers and their shellans, please I miss Marissa and Cormia Haven t seen much of them lately More Butch, V, and Jane too How about Rhage and Mary updates.Ah, I never get enough of these books Let this be a warning to you Do not read these books if you want a life outside of the Black Dagger Brotherhood Not that I m complaining, mind you

On the surface, Rehv was a selfish, opportunistic and manipulative character In the past, he showed how he sacrificed for the ones he cared, but in this book we get to see yet another side of him Seeing his vulnerabilities made him lovable The thing was, it wasn t that she wanted to change everything She just wanted something for herself, something that made her know she was alive. I like how responsible Ehlena was, not only with her profession but also her family She was under a lot of pressure, yet she managed to always put others first However, there were times when I thought she was naive and judgmentalJohn Matthew was her well of soul, as the symphaths called it, or her pyrocant, to the vampires Her essential weaknessBesides Rehv and Ehlena, Wrath Beth, and John Matthew Xhex were the secondary stories Wrath s issue was a good sub plot to show his worth as the King And Xhex surprised me I never liked her before, but her vulnerability made me sympathize with her Lover Avenged is a story of a couple in two different worlds that fight for what they believe in With how the story ended, I m definitely looking forward to the next book.Standalone Books in the series Must be read in order Forreviews reveals giveaways visit

    Rehvenge or Rehv and EhlenaEhlena Yeah Don t take this the wrong way She drew in a deep breath and he saw her bare shoulders tighten Okay I ll try not to You keep showing up here Being who you are There was a pause I m going to fall in love with youEhlena is a sweet, humble nurse who lives with her old and unable to help himself father She is a good nurse dedicated to her job at Haver s clinic and her patients She is a good daughter who stands by her sick father an Rehvenge or Rehv and EhlenaEhlena Yeah Don t take this the wrong way She drew in a deep breath and he saw her bare shoulders tighten Okay I ll try not to You keep showing up here Being who you are There was a pause I m going to fall in love with youEhlena is a sweet, humble nurse who lives with her old and unable to help himself father She is a good nurse dedicated to her job at Haver s clinic and her patients She is a good daughter who stands by her sick father and spends most of the money that she earns for his care She is also a very poor girl who is not part of the glymera.Rehvenge is the owner of the most famous vampire club and the brother of Bella A crime boss and a drug lord He is a badass boy with a mohawk and amethyst eyes.And with a big bad secret He is half Symphath he has the ability and desire to manipulate emotions in others , which is not a good thing and he needs to keep himself calm in order to be able to operate daily Moreover Rehvenge is part of the Glymera and he is rich So, Ehlena and Rehvenge have really nothing in common except Rehvenge s frequent visits to the clinic in order to get antibiotics and medicines in large quantities Rehvenge thinks that he does not deserve her And probably he doesn t, because Ehlena will lose her job and her dignity because of him And because he never tells her the whole truth.Ehlena thinks that she does not deserve him And she couldn t bewrong, because she will save him permanently And because she will be the brotherhood s special nurse and a valuable asset for all the warriors.Book cover Yes I am totally biased I adore all Paul Marron s book covers although I love himas LOTHAIRE As a result this book cover is my favorite in the series so far.Kick start for the next book view spoiler What happened to Xhex hide spoiler
