Lover at Last Book Cover Lover at Last
Black Dagger Brotherhood
J.R. Ward


Qhuinn, son of no one, is used to being on his own. Disavowed from his bloodline, shunned by the aristocracy, he has found an identity as a brutal fighter in the war against the Lessening Society. But his life is not complete. Even as the prospect of having a family of his own seems within reach, he is empty on the inside, his heart given to another....

Blay, after years of unrequited love, has moved on from his feelings for Qhuinn. And it’s about time: it seems Qhuinn has found his perfect match in a Chosen female, and they are going to have a young. It’s hard for Blay to see the new couple together, but building your life around a pipe dream is just a heartbreak waiting to happen. And Qhuinn needs to come to terms with some dark things before he can move forward…

Fate seems to have taken these vampire soldiers in different directions, but as the battle over the race’s throne intensifies, and new players on the scene in Caldwell create mortal danger for the Brotherhood, Qhuinn learns the true meaning of courage, and two hearts meant to be together finally become one. 

Foxy's Review:

Bev and I have made it to book 11!!! Only one more book to go until we are all caught up. Since we made it this far I think we earned our Daggerized names->
Bhev & Fhoxy

When I originally found out that LOVER AT LAST was a m/m book I had told Bhev that I would skip this book because it’s not a genre I read. But as I watched Qhuinn & Blay’s story unfold throughout all the books I began anticipating this one. While I enjoyed Team QB and Layla’s story I didn’t really care for the other side stories happening in this book. I think if this 600 page book would have focused more on those three vampires I would have easily given this book 5 stars but that wasn’t the case. Also QB had communication issues which could have easily been solved had they JUST talked with each other. 

I think Sam Smith’s song “Stay With Me” was written for QB.

Love, after all, was universal.
