    Verily, Ward, you hath redeemed thyself in mine eyes.Lover Unleashed was disappointing for me on several levels But I knew that, if Ward did it right, Tohrment s book had the potential to be the best installment to the series in a long time I ve wanted him to find peace and healing ever since that fateful scene at the end of Lover Awakened, but I knew it would take time And now that his time has finally come, I m pleased to say that Ward doesn t disappoint.Tohrment No One I know a lot of people aren t happy that Tohrment doesn t get Wellsie back I m not happy about it, either But save for getting Wellsie back, I believe Tohr was dealt the best hand possible in Lover Reborn.Let me be frank I had very little faith that Ward could pull a romance like this off Seriously, Tohrment and Wellsie Probably one of the most romantic couples I ve ever come across in the PNR UF genre Their back story, the glimpses we see of their relationship in the first three books how can you possibly follow an act like that Some of the sentences in this are like an assault to the solar plexus There were scenes where I felt like I was chopping onions Suffice it to say I cried a lot while reading Tohr s story Man, Tohrment he just tears me apart Truly.As Tohr says himself, No One could never replace Wellsie but the emotional and physical connection between Tohr and No One is undeniable Tohr and No One have a lot in common each has been through a tremendous ordeal in their lifetime , they ve meant in the past and spent an entire year in each other s company, and No One is incredibly understanding and supportive of Tohr and his situation I don t think any other female could ve brought him back from the brink the way No One did.I didn t expect to like No One as much as I did I ve never really liked the Chosen women, and although No One isn t a Chosen, she s very similar to them But she is humble, kind, and, underneath the shield she s erected to protect herself, passionate Ward has surprised me before, and she definitely did in the case of No One s character The best part about the romance in this is how slow it builds One year passes from beginning to end of this installment, and Tohr doesn t give himself over to the possibility of loving another easily It isn t until near the end that he truly opens his heart to No One view spoiler But did you notice No bonding scent Save for a little show of possessiveness which I think could just be chalked up to the nature of a male vampire , Tohr didn t bond with No One I have to say that I liked this fact very much For me, that would ve discredited Tohr s love for his previous shellan as well as the bonds the other Brothers have with their shellans I don t think that the bonding thing should be taken lightly.Don t get me wrong I m glad he s in love with her and all, but I think him bonding with her would ve been too much I hope it doesn t come into play in future books hide spoiler

    Just a fair warning This book buttfucked me raw without lube spoiler pun intended and destroyed my heart and sanity My feelings are all over the place and I need to vent Cursing, spoilers and inappropriate gifs ahead.TORH NO ONESummary SEXSEXSEXSEXSEXSEXANGSTANGSTANGSTANGSTA year ago when Ward announced Tohr was next, I got so mad It was too soon for him, it felt rushed, he wasn t ready, she was fucking him up, etc And sadly, I still stand on that.And on that note, let me clarify something One thing is to accept someone you love died and to move on with your life and another is finding a new partner You don t need to fuck love someone else to move on in a healthy way I disagree completely with Ward here Tohr needed to find himself again, move on naturally, accept Wellsie was death AND THEN find someone else Not do both things at the same time.And honestly, Tohr was a douchebag to her for the most part He treated No One with no respect, insulted her and used her Grieving doesn t give you the right to act like that And also TOO MUCH SEX If you know me, you know that coming from me is huge.The whole seasons thing was a weak plot device to be able to squeeze a whole year worth development into one book, when each book usually covers like two weeks top We ve been getting Qhuay little by little over 5 books now, when that s exactly what Ward should have done with Tohr Autumn Reading their developtment in 4 5 different books and then getting their own book would have worked better and smoothly, IMO.But I guess Ward ran out of characters we currently care enough about to give a shit about a book with them as main characters She s got, what The Shadows, the BoB, Muhrder, Lassiter who she already stated needs to happen AFTER Tohr and, oh yeah Qhuay But I guess 4 books were not enough built up for themJM XHEXFirst of all, you need to know I m completely biased when it comes to these two They are my favorite m f couple Xhex can do no wrong in my eyes, I m her bitch and will always be I stan them so hard they should fucking adopt me.I read spoilers before reading the book and knew they had some problems At first I thought, so soon WTF But it made total sense In fact, I m glad this happened because someone had to make these warriors see women are than soft, obliging creatures they own.I still believe John is the worst and most selfish BFF someone could have, but he s one of the best boyfrands from the bunch of mated dudes we have in the series, IMO I have a love hate relationship with the handsome son of a bitch.XHEX and the oppresion of men Xhex was amazing, perfect, flaw free, better than your fave, best bias you can bias and the ultimate HBIC in this book AGAIN.She stand in front of the whole Brotherhood and called them an anachronistic group of misogynists , and very rightly so She is greatly needed in this misogynist vamp society You re mated and suddenly all the males look at your mate for approval to let you do shit Horrible dej v of women not being allowed to open their own bank accounts for example without their husband s signed permission shudders I love the Brothers but they need to work on their close minded view of females ASAP Btw, during all her ordeal against the oppression of testosterone, where the fuck was Payne AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO NOTICED THIS BS The only female Xhex who seems to EVEN care about this general chauvinist behavior is constantly described as manly and masculine Why can t feminine women notice this and FIGHT AGAINST IT, too Are Marissa, Mary, Ehlhenhah, Cormia, Bella or Beth grateful and content their mates let them get outta the mansion and do appropriate work for women Marissa thinking I m so lucky, Butch is old fashioned but he never complained about me working made me want to punch her in the face You may not see it, but that s classic fucked up thinking for women in regards of their rights in society according to men She is grateful her husband allows her to do as she pleases Bitch, please That thought should not exist in the first fucking place And don t get me started on the needing bullshit Servicing , my ass.LAYLAJ R Ward has ruined this character for me, verily I can no longer stand to see her getting any kind of attention from any male, at all My blood literally boils and I want to smack her It s irrational at this point.She possesses not a single redeeming quality IMO You may be thinking, but she s selfless and lives to service the warriors If that is the case, let me direct you to my previous point Layla is the worse example of women embracing chauvinism Examples Providing blood to males of worth was all that was left of her calling All that she had in her life Let us do what we must For the future Those are just a few of the little pearls of wisdom she presented us with in this book Qhuinn has been educating her for months to see life is much than just servicing men and wanting cock, and yet she s still thinking exactly the same Qhuinn, sts but yo wasting yor time, bud.Plus, is she dumb No, seriously I m actually asking this for real She s been in the mansion for a few years now, right She must know everyone who lives there, right Plus, she s been hunting for a mate so she must know all the males, right And yet, she mistakes Xcor and Throe for BDB Warriors She didn t notice anything shaddy when Throe called her in the middle of no fucking where Or when she never saw them in the mansion after weeks of waiting She so conviently never asked anyone about the warrior she had fed, either And then, when she finds out who they truly are she faints, she is in distress, she can t believe they fooled her Oh poor, poor victim of the cruel system Note my sarcasm, please.She s already started to bond with Xcor pretty hardcorely, too and the first backbone she shows is to betray him and help them TO KILL HIM She s so worried about getting her servicing job taken from her, she s ready to sell her mum if needed Not even once did she try to convince them of some way out for the male she s already fallen for I m sorry, I can t respect her She s selfish, she wants wants wants and doesn t think of consecuences or other people s needs feelings She s so selfish she wants a baby to feel better, FFS Conclusion XCOR BoB LAYLAMostly Meh I m sad Ward is going to use this pontentially awesome HEA storyline in Xcor and Layla, tbh The BoB started a bit zzZZzz but after Xcor betrayed Throe things picked up pace and turned interesting.The gay undertones between Xcor Throe, Zypher Throe, everyone Throe were greatly appreciated Throe is the glue keeping the Bastards together, everyone is his bitch DI m also thinking ex Aristocrat Throe and Super Aristocra Saxton could be fun to read QHUINNDuring the first half of the book, Qhuinn s angst was so beautiful my heart ached for him I m not ashamed to admit I ugly cried when he got recognition from the Brothers.He is, however, a fucking dumbass Can t deny the truth I love him, and bless his heart but he duuuumb He needs to grow so much to be able to reach Blay And don t get me started on what a coward he is Honestly, I m mad at JRW for doing this to Qhuay Not with Qhuinn.She made Qhuinn hold back his feelings because he thought he was not good enough for so long, and then she made him have a kid on a whim and change his mind about holding back with Blay on another She spent 4 books building up his character, layer after layer, and it was so good And then idk, she went on crack And ruined it all in a 30 secs decision Just WTF Plus, maybe this is just me but Since he is aware of his feelings for Blay now, shouldn t he be concerned about not hurting him Sure, he believes Blay has moved on and no longer cares about him convenient plot device n 56730367 but when you love someone you obsess over silly things, such as, oh idk, I know Blay has moved on, but I used to hurt him with my whoring around Maybe this still bothers him even when he s happily mated with someone else and I should do something about it Talk about not knowing how to properly pine for a person Talk about dumbasses plot devices.QHUINN LAYLA BFFsWhenever Qhuinn called Layla baby girl or touched her in any way, I got so mad at some point I realized I was projecting on Blay and getting all jealous and possessive If I were Blay, after being mated, I couldn t stand the thought of that bitch anywhere near us Sorry, could never work for me Even when Blay is a fucking saint, I can t see it realistic for him to accept her in the middle of their marriage, especially after being hurt by Qhuinn s slutty behavior for years Blay is flaw free, but his confidence is touching rock bottom when it comes to Qhuinn There has to be an issue about this between them or I call BS.But back at the unpleasant subject that are Qhuinn and Layla I guess Ward was aiming at awww they are BFFs, how qt is that but sorry, couldn t go there with them Even Layla thinking she was over him sounded hollow and fake to my ears It just didn t make sense with the rest of her behavior She s pretty much the same after months of discovering the world and yet she has realized her feelings for Qhuinn weren t real Bitch please anyone else THE BIG OH NO, YOU DIDN THDY JRW HFDY doesn t even start covering it She went there She fucking went there.Already bonded Layla and Bonded for 3 Books at least Qhuinn decided the solution to all their issues was to have a kid together Bringing a child to the world like it is a business transaction is not right The way she manipulated him into this was disturbing, too You re my only hope, and I yours For someone playing so dumb about certain things such as traitors she was verily must cunning in convincing Qhuinn She knew exactly what to say to use his issues and weak points against him Let us do what we must For the future Oh yeah, the whole vampire race depends on you two Now go populate the earth I knew Qhuinn was a weak coward see his relationship with Blay for examples but my god, he went from I will NEVER have sex with her to prevent that Fade vision to happen to A child sounds like a fantastic idea and that Face vision assures it will happen in less than 0.30 secs blinks a few times in confusion Also 1 No One could barely talk when the needing hit her while Layla had a whole conversation with Qhuinn 2 Layla had been to the other side but not enough to get a free pass on the needing triggering 3 She decided to risk it and not freak out like the rest of the females just in case Pfff please.And hey, WHERE THE FUCK WAS PHURY WHEN THIS TRAIN WRECH HAPPENED They had isolated No One and still, it seemed a porn movie was being filmed in the mansion while she was through her needing And yet, when Qhuinn takes needing Layla to his room, no one seems to notice or care enough to says OH WAIT SOMEONE IS DEFLOWERING A MOST VERILY SACRED CHOOSEN DURING HER NEEDING, DANGER, DANGER, PREGGO TIMES, DANGER In vampire age, Qhuinn is a fucking kid How come no one stopped them from making this huuuuge mistake Even Qhuinn thought Phury was going to kill him and yet, Phury was no where to be seeing Not before, not during, not after Perhaps Ward is holding those precious moment for the next book I should have been glad they were awkward as fuck after it and clearly not in lurv , but my god, this is such a huge mess I can t even rejoice in the little mercies And I m assuming some people will be mad at Qhuinn for caring so much about her after it, but come on, IF this had to happen, he d be an even bigger asshole if he didn t act like this now, tbh.I still don t undertand WHY Ward went there I can t see anyone being pleased with this Qhuinn Layla fans Legit question Do they really exist Oh so romantic, they share a kid while they mate someone else FRUSTRATED AND PISSED Layla stans My girl deserves respect and a male who worshippes only her FRUSTRATED AND PISSED Qhuay fans Oh please, do I have to explain this one FRUSTRATED AND ROYALLY PISSED.Conclusion FUTURE DAUGHTERXhex But why would they want a young That shit was crazy town There s a good reason why Xhex is my fave Only shade of light in this mess is how IMO Ward showed the whole thing as something negative The undertone was something along the lines of look at these two lost souls making a decision for the most fucked up of reasons That s the only tiny positive thing on all this.This child is going to come to this world and be taken care of by a girl who lives in a fantasy world, unable to take care of herself, selfish and delusional and with a daddy so full of his own issues he s nowhere near ready for any kind of responsability And hey, congrats Your step dad is Xcor Woohoo I wish the kid wouldn t exist Well, scratch that I wish Layla and her needing didn t exist But Qhuinn s daughter Sorry to say, I m the biggest fucking sap in the world and I already love her She s fault free and part of Qhuinn noregrets comeatmebroBLAYBlaylock is, with Xhex, my favorite character At this point I m only invested in his happiness and fuck the world He deserves only the very best, and maybe at this point some people believe Qhuinn doesn t match that description big surprise here , but Blay wants him and I want Blay to be happy, so I m still pinning hard for Qhuay to happen I m surprised At how awful this felt. As that fucking chandelier twinkled overhead, Blay said roughly, I m still in love with him GPOY of me while reading this scene He broke my heart so much I don t think I ll ever recover from it He is my most dearest character ever And what s happening to him is so unfair, in so many levels Maybe he s the character with the least tragic past or lesser issues, but my god, life is fucking him up royally over and over When is it going to be enough for Ward s standard of tortured men Even when he gets his man, he ll have to share him with someone else How fucking fair is that For him, for Layla or for us If he d been able to, he d have jumped up and torn that goddamn cocksucking light fixture off the goddamn cocksucking ceiling If that didn t cover perfectly well the general sentiment I don t know what could Blay losing it was so liberating It was like I was losing it with him About fucking time, too SAXTONSaxton is a fucking saint My creys This male of worth deserves a good, long, thick cock handsome, flawless male to service him for life.The fact that it was him who suggested Qhuinn should get some recognition for his brave actions was such a neat move I can t wait for Saxton and Qhuinn to have a stronger family bond sapAnd yet Why the fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu did he stop Blay when he tried to storm out the room Maybe he was headed to Qhuinn s room to stop that madness from happening Am I the only one who yelled NOOOOOOOOO BLAY SAXTONBLAY BUTT FUCKED SAXTON WITHOUT LUBE Sorry, I had to say it For a moment it was like reading a yaoi comic, where men always have self lubricating bottoms Hopefully this was an out of the moment thing and Ward knows this is not the norm for future references Or maybe she pulls a gay vamps can self lubricate themselves at will poker face You never know Still, not enough details I know, none HEAs don t get sex screen time, but hey, someone remembers that sympath bitch and Rehv Hmmm yeah.MY DEAREST QHUAY CHEST HURTS I m actually so disappointed in Ward I used to believe in her I trusted her 100% But she s been dragging out their story for too long and adding ridiculous plot devices to hold them back Don t bullshit me any with they aren t ready They are and they were You made Torh be ready and stuffed a whole year into a book to make it happen, so STFU and give us Qhuay already Onto fangirling comments Qhuinn s physical reaction when his stare met Blay s was so intense I forgot to breath for a moment.And I guess we re going for full circles here First Blay told Qhuinn he loved him and Qhuinn didn t hear him very convenient and now Qhuinn told Blay he loved him, and very conveniently again, Ward used John s self centered character to mistake the tone and who Qhuinn was talking to, to cockblock Qhuay ONCE AGAIN.There has been so much cock blocking between these two, I m glad they are both males or they wouldn t know what a penis looks like any at this point.When Qhuinn was injured, they were so heartbreaking, so clearly in pain and longing for each other It s exaclty what I needed But then, Blay believes that angsty tear is because Qhuinn is in pain and is about to leave, Qhuinn calls his name and he ignores him You love someone, and no matter how much that person rejected you, if they call you like that in a moment of need being hurt, you turn around and see what they want No, seriously, stop with the stupid cock blocking And yet, when Jane is like wtf at Blay, another cock block happens with Saxton holding him back outside the room Can we please be done with the delay already Those are just weak, weak, weak excuses And I m tired of them I ve seen lots of people discussing what those two things that had to happen for Qhuay to be ready were, and my two cents are Blay s reaction to Qhuinn Layla during her needing, and Qhuinn realizing life is too short and you can lose your loved ones in a moment.WHO IS NEXTDuh As Blay started to straighten, like a message had been received, Qhuinn thought That s right, buddy Our future has come Side Note Qhuinn, you stupid fuck, you just got a girl pregnant and NOW you decide to go after Blay EDIT March 31 2012 THEIR TIME HAS COME 2013 NEXT BDB HARDCOVER..BLAY QHUINN Note The gifs posted here keep getting exceeded bandwidth with too many views omg guise What are y all doing __

    Spoilers are hidden The quick and the dead are all the same.Everyone s just looking for home LASSITER Hear ye Hear ye Leteth it be known that on this day, March 31st, 2012, I solemnly vow that I shall never doubt the WARDen again So, now that that s out of the way, my thoughts on the book I wasn t sure she could do it Pffffft Silly me I didn t think she could pull it off sigh Whatever was I thinking And had I had actually considered skipping this book and not reading it at all Yes, yes I had hangs head in shame In fact, I ve spent the past year angsting and fretting and worried and crying and angry and over what That Wellsie would be replaced That the whole Wellsie can t move on until you do storyline would feel too contrived That I d have to sit through Qhuay drama than any human being should be forced to endure Yes, in fact, I worried about all of those things and much, much , but like I told my Goodreads friends in the JR WARD BLACK DAGGER BROTHERHOOD GROUP, never, ever, will I doubt the WARDen again Okay, let s get down to businessspoiler thoughts Tohr and Autumn and their story view spoiler I honestly wasn t sure what to think about No One because we d never been given enough of her character to form any real impressions I m thrilled to say that I think she s all kinds of awesome I loved that she didn t try to hide behind her mistakes, that she came out, faced them, admitted to them, and did everything she could to make things right.And Tohr what a male of worth Amazing, honorable, hot But wow I felt so much pain for him The WARDen did a great job, I think, of showing that it was not easy for him to let go That it tore him apart to even think about it In this one book I was able to feel what he d been living for the past years since Wellsie s death, and I needed to feel those emotions in order to buy this story This was a tough one for me, because I was very upset, very worried about Wellsie being replaced, worried that it would be a they were never meant to be couple but I think the WARDen did a fantastic job of handling a difficult subject and she did it with compassion, understanding, and a great deal of love and respect all the way around That s not to say that I m not sad still Even after I finished the book, I cried for Tohr and Wellsie, and their baby, Tohrment, son of Tohrment, and for all that had been taken from them I m truly not sure if I ll ever be okay with it, but it is what it is hide spoiler

    5 stars Paranormal Vampire UF RomanceThoughts Before Reading When will the WARDen give us Qhuinn s Blaylock s story, dammit I don t give a about Tohr I want Qhuay Thoughts After Reading This is me coughing up feathers after eating crow because Lover Reborn was sooo much better than I expected It s an emotional read that had me shedding serious tears and an a wesome installment to the series And now that the Warden has officially announced on Facebook that Blay and Qhuinn are the next BDB hardcover release slated for 2013 faints Seriously, somebody better have a stash of smelling salts handy

    With Lover Reborn, Ward partly redeems herself for last book I can t say she s back to her old level though To me, the book was a 4 star start and a 2 star finish There were lots of okay moments, some very beautiful moments and some seriously contrived, idiotic and redundant moments So I ended up with 3 stars Despite this I think this book came too soon and didn t do justice to Tohr, his needs, and his relationship with neither Wellsie or No One More on that later, I m going to start with the good The fab The first 50% of the book. Honestly I was pleasantly surprised After the disappointment that was Lover Unleashed, I wasn t expecting much, so I started reading with a you better show me what you ve got attitude But my reserve and cynicism slowly but surely changed to interest Then engagement And then finally I was back to where I was with the old BDB books holding my breath, ooh ing and aah ing and giggling.Contrary to my expectations Ward excelled in the low action parts The quiet moments, the beautiful scenes of platonic intimacy, the gradual change in the feelings of characters It was all wonderfully done I never expected for Ward to make Tohr and No One even remotely interesting but she did than that she made it so that for the first half of the book I didn t doubt their connection Those two just worked together The way their relationship evolved in the first half of the book from hostility to truce, to acknowledging their similarities, to tentative companionship, to a true connection it just made sense Tohr and No One together made sense Without taking anything away from what Tohr had with Wellsie Tohr s feelings of guilt and remorse, his contradictory thoughts and physical responses there were some beautiful scenes in there Lassiter and Qhuinn Each time I got to read a POV of one of these boys, I got a smile on my face The interesting Assail Ward dubbed him Tha Shit so my expectations were high I can t say he met them, but his story line is certainly promising The Band of Bastards After the sap out in last book, I was dreading Xcor and BoB scenes, but turns out they re still interesting and edgy Of course, it s clear that all them bad boys are just darlings inside, but for now I m resolved to enjoy their moral ambiguity Oh, and I m really curious about those unnamed cousins The missed opportunity Xhex and No One s relationship There was one scene of importance between Xhex and No One And, beautiful as it was, it wasn t enough Not only do I think that one conversation can t rekindle a mother daughter relationship especially for two people who have never had a normal relationship in their lives , but the fact is here we have two strong, smart females, with a difficult past who are going to difficult times and this is what we get Such a waste The meh The second half of the book There were just too many obvious plot devices Tohr having to come to talk to No One while in her needing , inconsistencies two needings being handled completely differently and huh moments Qhuinn and Xcor fist fighting while fully armed, Payne s magic hand being completely overlooked in heavy medical situations I know it s little things but it adds up to being very annoying I don t want to feel like my intelligence is insulted while I m reading a book The JM Xhex story line I was afraid those two would become for Lover Reborn what V and Jane were for Lover Unleashed a contrived story line with out of character actions, solely created to add to the drama.Well it wasn t that bad First of all it was wonderful to be in JM s head again, and the sex was HOT Further especially in the beginning, I could relate to both characters both to their rational and irrational behavior But as their story line progressed, the way Xhex and JM handled their problems made no sense at all Also as annoying as the V Jane, subplot was, at least it weaved into the main plot It wasn t the case for JM and Xhex To me, this made that at a certain point their story line not only felt silly, but also completely redundant The second part of the Tohr No One story line The first half of the love plot was so beautifully done that I was rooting for them despite my initial reservations They had an undeniable connection which was based as much on their current dynamics as their shared history together I was really curious how this connection would gradually grow into full blown love Well it didn t I felt like their relationship made a huge leap, which wasn t founded in the way interacted Everything which made their connection promising in the first half, was gone in the most part of the second Tohr and No One s relationship was based on openness They talked They related That s what brought them together they were friends before lovers That companionship was absent in the last part I understand the need for drama and angst, but it didn t make the falling in love part believable The bad The premise of the love plot Wellsie being stuck in the In Between didn t make sense at all Not only did it go against everything Ward has said and published about Wellsie on her old boards, there used to be a scene of Wellsie talking to Tohr about being in the Fade , but the fact that it was Tohr s task to let her go so she could be at peace goes against the basics of Ward s world The world in where mated vampires devote their lives to their shellans Tohr is mated to Wellsie for 200 years and he is supposed to just get over it within 1,5 years Is he not supposed to mourn Also why was Wellsie sent to the In Between right off the bat if it s a case of prolonged mourning that s not allowed In that case Tohr wasn t even allowed a mourning period of a millisecond.The ugly Layla It almost feels like revenge to combine the words Layla and ugly, because if I hear one time how unearthly beautiful and perfect she is, I ll break something This girl must be one of the most annoying characters in PNR history And no I m not just saying that because of her Qhuinn hang up She is just poorly characterized We are supposed to root for her happiness and feel sorry for her sorrow I just want to knock some sense into her No she isn t naive and she isn t strong She is self serving, dumb and pig headed Her actions in the book spoke volumes I m already pissed that she s going to fuck up Xcor s book view spoiler The kid Apparently Layla s stupidity was contagious The joint decision because sorry people however stupid and unfounded, at the end it was that a joint decision was made on a whim and had me going QHUINN, WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU THINKING I m pissed because I wanted Qhuinn and Blay to start out their relationship with just each other They had enough problems as it is Alas, no such thing hide spoiler

    3.5 Letting Go Stars SpoilersFirst read 2014Reread 4 9 2017 I need this, he said, as if speaking to himself Yes, you do You are so gaunt that I ache for you Except he was going to stop this, she thought as his stare grew dull And she knew why She is welcome in this space, No One said Bring your shellan unto your mind Let her take my place Tohr and AutumnLover Reborn, the 10th book in the BDB series was an emotional read for me I have loved Tohr since book one I also loved his mate Wellsie I thought they were so cute together and that they had a strong connection So I was very heartbroken when Wellsie got shot and killed while pregnant with Tohr s son I mean I cried my eyes out when she died The pain Tohr felt was so realistic that I ached So when I heard Tohr was getting his own book and a new love I was happy and worried I was happy that he would get a HEA as he so deserved it, but worried that the new love wouldn t hold a candle to Wellsie or the love him and his dead mate had I have no problem with widow love stories as long as the new love doesn t feel like a consolation prize I don t want to hurt you, he said, feeling like he wanted to return the favor You won t I know you are still in love with your mate, and I do not blame you What you had with her is a once in a lifetime love What about you I have no need or desire to take her place And I accept you just as you are, in any fashion you choose to come to me Or not, if that is the way it must be Tohr cursed as a part of his pain unexpectedly eased That isn t fair to you Tohr and Autumn You feel something for me, she said, kicking her chin up I know it s not love, but you feel I feel sorry for you That s where I m at Because you re just a victim You re no one but a victim who likes to suffer Even if I could fall in love with you, there s nothing about you to get truly attached to You re just a ghost who s not really here any than I am And in our case, two wrongs do not make a right Autumn and TohrIn this book I had mixed feelings about Tohr and Autumn No One While Tohr suffered and I felt bad for him I felt worst for Autumn It was horrible that he was pushed into moving on I understand that if Torh didn t let go of Wellsie, she would be stuck in the In between but forcing Tohr into a relationship felt wrong Most of the time I felt like Tohr was using Autumn For months he would sleep in bed with her but not under the covers and he wouldn t hold her He would touch her and get her off and jack off but wouldn t let her touch him He never wanted to see her naked, and he didn t ever really spend time with her or talk to her Then when he moved on to full sex he still held himself back Not as bad as before the sex and there were times when he would let his walls down letting Autumn in a little It was still painful to read I felt that Autumn was second place to his dead mate Hell at one point he told Autumn that he was using her to get Wellsie to the Fade and that he still loves his dead mate Oh, yeah Well, brace yourself, you re really not going to like my next conclusion I m beginning to think you re with me to punish yourself She recoiled so sharply, her neck cracked again I most certainly am not What better way to steep yourself in misery than to be with a male who loves someone else That is not why I m with you How would you know, Autumn You ve been making a martyr out of yourself for centuries You ve been a servant, a maid, a laundress and you ve been fucking me for the last few months which brings us back to my point about clinical insanity How dare you judge my inner convictions, she hissed You know nothing of what I think or feel Bullshit You re in love with me He pivoted to face her and put up his palm to stop her commenting Don t bother denying it you tell me in your sleep every day So let s build a case You clearly like to punish yourself And you know damn well the only reason I m with you is to get Wellsie out of the In Between So don t I just fit your pattern to a T Tohr and Autumn You got that right I ve been using you, and the only person it s working for is you God knows it s gotten me nowhere The good news is that this whole thing he gestured back and forth between them is going to give you a terrific excuse to torture yourself even longer Oh, don t bother with the denials That symphath was your fault I m your fault The weight of the world is all your fault, because you enjoy being the victim tohr and AutumnAs much as I loved Tohr I felt he did Autumn wrong for a lot of their relationship Maybe J R Ward should have waited until Tohr had mourned longer before he moved on with someone else I tried to be understanding because Tohr and Wellsie had such a strong love, and were mated for 200 years, but I felt like Autumn really got kicked around Then I felt so bad for Tohr being forced to move on when he loved his dead mate so much that I couldn t even be mad at him for being a dick But here is the thing Tohr had moments with Autumn where I felt he may have really been falling for her Those moments were almost at the end of the book so I kinda wished we would have got to see of that for me to know if Autumn is second place or truly loved I guess I will just have to see how their relationship plays out in future books I know this much as far as I could tell he never bonded with Autumn There was no talk of bonding scent, no super possessiveness I just don t know I wanted for Tohr who suffered so damn much This isn t an apology This is about waking up and reaching for you and wishing you were next to me It s about ordering extra food for you, and then remembering that you re not around to feed it to It s about the fact that even as I was packing up my dead mate s clothes, I had you in my mind, too It wasn t just Wellsie, Autumn, and I think I knew that after your needing and that s why I snapped I spent a day and a half sitting on my ass, staring into the dark, trying to figure this all out and I don t know I guess I finally found the courage to be really fucking honest with myself Because it s hard when you ve loved one person with everything you ve got, and she s gone, and someone else comes and treads all over her territory in your heart He put his hand up to his chest and struck at his sternum This was hers and hers alone Forever Or at least so I thought but shit didn t work out that way, and then you came along and circle be damned, I don t want to be finished with you Tohr Tohr started to weep properly, his sobs exploding out of his chest Reaching for Autumn, he held his hand forward, beckoning to her, because in this moment of letting go, after this seemingly endless, painful journey, along which she and she alone had joined him, he d never felt closer to anyone Even his Wellsie TohrJohn and Xhex were having some issues in this book I hated them going through that I love John and Xhex as a couple and it made me sad for them Although I knew they would make it their love was to strong not too I loved Lassiter in this book I felt he really shined Wrath got shot in this book and almost died and I was losing my shit I was so pissed at Xcor in this book, but then he turned around and did some growing and I started to like him again I don t know what it is about Xcor that draws me in If anyone else would have tried to kill my Wrath I would have hated them for life But with Xcor I found myself forgiving him I loved Layla and Xcor s response to meeting each other Qhuinn and Blay s book is next and I don t know how I feel about it I love Blay but I have always been a little mad at Qhuinn for being a coward and not being with Blay Man, this angel crap it s so fucking hard to influence anything I ve never had a problem with free will before, but for shit s sake, I wish I could just I Dream of Jeannie you to where you need to be As Tohr winced, the angel muttered, It s okay, though We ll get you there somehow Actually, I m cringing at the vision of you in a pink harem costume Hey, I have a great ass, I ll have you know Lassiter and Tohr Wow, she breathed I know, right Hung like a horse If you re really nice and you live through this I ll promise not to tell V About my size She laughed a little No, that you assumed I d look at you in any fashion other than professionally Jane and Lassiter

    He waited for his conscience to start screaming.He prepared himself for an overwhelming desolation that he had been with another female.He was ready for something, anything to cough up out of his chest despair, anger, frustration.All he got was the sense that what had just happened was the beginning, not an end Lover Reborn is a heartbreaking story, even though it has a happy end.Watching Tohrment and his suffering, trying to let go of Wellsie It was sad and beautiful at the same time, because of what he found with No One It was a slow romance, full of sadness, but I loved it all the same.This one definitely goes to one of my favorites from this series The storyThe only thing keeping Tohr alive is his obsession with avenging his wife s murder He is focused only on killing lessers, and is getting weaker and weaker as the days go by, because he s stopped eating and feeding.Lassiter is the only one that can get to Tohr, and he s doing whatever he can to help him, because he s here on a mission to free Wellsie from the In Between.After seeing how Tohr reacts to No One, he gets a brilliant idea to get those two together DIt works, in a way, but at the cost of both Tohr s and No One s feelings.They will have to get over their pasts, and make a new future for themselves I don t want to hurt you, he said, feeling like he wanted to return the favor You won t I know you are still in love with your mate, and I do not blame you What you had with her is a once in a lifetime love What about you I have no need or desire to take her place And I accept you just as you are, in any fashion you choose to come to me Or not, if that is the way it must be The story The previous book was pretty much insta love, and this one is as far from insta love as you can get.Very slow in the romance part, and I prefer it that way, otherwise it wouldn t be believable It took Tohr a lot of time to find himself again, and that s great, as I said, totally believable This book is really about letting go of the loved ones, and moving on with life, and it was done wonderfully, it was difficult and heartbreaking, so very sad, but beautiful in the end.There was some action here, but not much A couple of intense scenes, especially the ambush one.The characters will be spoilerish Lassiter He has a big role in this one yay , an angel sent to Earth to redeem himself, he has to free Wellsie from the In Between, and for that, he has to make Tohr move on with his life and let her go.Of course, that isn t as easy as it sounds, because Tohr s suffering is too great, he loved her too much to let her go.Lassiter doesn t really do compassion, he doesn t care about anyone, but he forms a friendship with Tohr, and by the end of it, he s willing to do whatever it takes to see Tohr and No One have a happy end.What he did at the end of the book 3 I knew I loved him for a reason 3 And I can t wait for him to get his own book, I just know that it s going to be amazing 3Xhex John They go through a tough time here, mostly because they didn t know what they got into when they got mated, and it takes than just being in love to make a life with someone.John is overprotective of Xhex, and after she gets hurt, he basically forbids her to go out in the field.Well, I don t have to say anything about how that turned out DDXhex is a trained killer, she can hold her own, but the Brotherhood stands by John on this one, so she leaves the mansion and goes back to her previous line of work with Trez.It was really hard to see them unhappy, and I seriously didn t know how it could get better, but I m glad how it all worked out, and how John realised he has to change his thinking when it comes to Xhex and her fighting with the Brotherhood.The Band of Bastards I still don t like them They are just totally boring to me and I d rather skip all the scenes with them BUT ok, what happened with them We learn some about Throe, why exactly did he join the Bastards, and he falls in love in this book Whatever Xcor is making some devious plans on overtaking the throne and killing Wrath He too falls in love in this book Whatever.They have and orgy that I just didn t find sexy to read AT ALL In fact, I don t think I liked any of the sex scenes from them since they first showed up No thank you for me Big no thank you.Assail He s the new vampire drug lord Have no idea if he ll be good or bad, but he s interesting Doesn t get on my nerves at all and I actually wanted to read scenes with him good sign Layla Well, she falls in love in this book too I d like to care, but I really don t I shudder to think how I ll get through her book when the time comes I hope there will be a LOT of side characters A LOT In fact, I could do with a novella A very short one Why torture us with a whole book Especially since the main guy is gonna be view spoiler Xcor pukes hide spoiler

    big satisfied sigh Well, I was a little worried about how this book Tohr s story might play out Tohr has been in misery over losing his Wellsie for just over 15 months has it only been 15 months It seems so much longer Anyway, in this book he has to move on and get past his grief because Wellsie is view spoiler stuck in the In Between a kind of purgatory, and she s not in The Fade , the happy place where vampires go when they die If Tohr doesn t snap to it, Wellsie and their unborn son wiill cease to exist no Fade for them hide spoiler

    Update lowered to 1 star because I got reminded about how disappointed I am in the wreck that is Tohr s storyVery disappointed And I m a HUGE JR Ward fan I was really looking forward to Tohr s story If anyone deserved a happy ending it s Tohr BUT.What the hell This book is 2 stars because I love JR s writing style, the other characters that we follow, their continued development But for the main couple of the story, I d give this something close to 1 star It s that bad Here are all the things I don t like about this book 1 Tohr is a complete dick Not nice at all I m not going to argue about whether or not he should have been allowed to fall in love again in the first place kinda puts in question the whole Bonded Male thing , but if you re gonna fall, then FALL And know what you want, damn it 2 The cover that is NOT how Tohr looks Not based on all the descriptions in all of the books I mean, it s a nice looking guy on the cover, but still 3 The Heroine Complete waste of space No One yep, that about summarizes her personality Autumn huh don t really know why that would fit She s totally meh No wonder Tohr can t decide whether he wants her or not JR is great at writing compelling heroines WTF 4 The interactions love story between the not so great H and the really awful h as you can imagine, there was really nothing there I don t believe they re in love for a second And that scene at the end I don t buy the sudden desperation Tohr has for her Just can t picture it I always pre order Ms Ward s books, buy them at full price 17 down the toilet This one made me hesitate on buying her books ever after I now wince and torture myself before clicking the button on any of her work I guess even the best authors can trip up I m sorry, but I really don t get this one.
