Lover Unleashed (Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 9) - J.R. Ward Payne, blooded sister of the Black Dagger Brother Vishous, son of the Bloodletter. Okay so don’t hate me but this is my least favorite of the bunch. Here’s why, I just don’t feel very connected to Manny or Payne. I have such an emotional connection with all the brothers and yes, we are running out of brothers and I know Ward has to add in “fresh blood” so to speak. I’ll say this, I was much more interested in Jane and V’s story.

Also after re-reading I am thinking that we are all so primed from the last two books for Qhuinn and Blay that unless it’s more about them we aren’t interested? Don’t get me wrong there is A LOT in Lover Unleashed to get excited about (see below) but compared to previous books……meh.

Now the good stuff, a list of my favorite moments. Hopefully not to spoilery.
