Lover Unleashed

Lover Unleashed
Black Dagger Brotherhood
J.R. Ward


Payne, twin sister of the Black Dagger Brother Vishous, suffers a devastating injury, and brilliant human surgeon Manuel Manello is called in to save her. Their attraction is instant, and as powerful as it is dangerous. But as human and vampire worlds collide, a centuries- old score catches up with Payne and puts both her love and her life in jeopardy.


Foxy’s Review:

Ms. Ward sure knows how to write forbidden romance and the proof is in this series. For those who haven’t read any books from this series keep in mind these vampires always have insta love. Insta-love is something I hate but for some reason it doesn’t bother me in this series. Go figure.

How do you eat an elephant? One bit at a time. This series is a beast. I started at the end of April working my way through it. Spending each weekend reading one book from this series with my book twin, Bev. We’ve spent a lot of time bonding over the Triple D threat -> deliciously descriptive dongs.

I love that we got glimpses of Qhuinn and Blay. When Bev and I started reading these books I informed her that I’m not a m/m reader and I will most likely skip book 11. FORGET THAT…I’m jonesing for their book now. One more book before we FINALLY get their love story.

I wasn’t sure if I’d like Manny and Payne’s love story since Manny wasn’t one of the brothers but instead a human. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. Overall, for the series, I’ve given all the books at least 4 stars even though some books I really didn’t care for (Butch, Phury and Rehv) because there were other stories going on within the book that brought the rating up for me. Had it just been the main story the book would have gotten a lower rating.

FORBIDDEN ROMANCE -> ‘After all, you can’t help who you fall for.’
