Review of J.R Ward Lover Mine


Lover Mine - J.R Ward - John Matthew's story:

Having grown up in the human system unaware of his vampire nature having to fend for himself and being the victim of abuse, its been a tough long road for John. It hasn't been any easier since his transition however still mute and fighting his inner demons hes at the brotherhood compound but feels more alone then ever.
But when Lash johns enemy kidnaps his love Xhex he knows he has to step up to save her and get her back or die trying.

My Opinion:

J.R Ward keeps getting better! She is an amazing author who always leaves me wanting more. I could not get enough of this book and its totally Ironic that even though John can't talk his voice was the loudest.
There is so much going on in this book - John and his mission against Lash to save the woman he loves. Tohr and his history with Darius as well as how these 3 males all play a part in Xhex's life.
In past books I've found myself skipping the finer details to get to the awesome parts, not in this book however the finer details were what made the story so important.
I was so thrilled to see John become his own man and fight his inner demons he has the perfect partner in Xhex strong yet understanding.
I loved the switch within the book between past and present it was awesome to learn more about Darius since we didn't know all that much because he died in book one..

I also found it heart breaking hearing about the conception of Xhex but heart warming to read about how Darius and Tohr rescued her. John and Xhex definitely have more in common then we see at first glance

There was so much love and angst in this book! I totally adored the kick ass vibe it had.. and will Bley and Quhinn ever get it together the waiting is killing me!!! lol.

Couldn't agree more! The BDB series is one of my favorites and I have a soft spot in my heart for each one of those sexy vamps. I've always found John so alluring though, maybe its because he can't speak and therefore his actions are always twice as loud. Either way, the romance is always hott!

Lover Mine feels like the end of the Brotherhood stories. Yes-John isn't technically a Brother, but those of us who have read from the beginning know that he is the reincarnation of Darius--and Darius/John's story has been the over arching story of the Black Dagger Brotherhood. From Dark Lover-where Darius 'introduced' Beth and Wrath to Lover Avenged where Xhex-John's fated mate-was kidnapped, Darius/John has been a critical component to the books. So on one hand I'm sorry to see the story end. On the other hand, it's actually a relief that John's angst has come to (hopefully) an end, and he's married to his gal.
