By J.R. Ward
Rating: 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟🌟(4.7/5 stars)
Hello, my fellow book-loving adventurers; we’re about to jump headfirst into the wild and wonderful world of the J.R. Wards Black Dagger Brotherhood Lover Revealed.
In the fourth installment of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series, our protagonist, Butch, a former cop, finds himself thrust into the vampire world. His life takes a turn that even his wildest dreams (or nightmares) couldn’t have predicted. Somehow, he finds himself entangled in the vampire world’s web of politics, romance, and fang-tastic adventures. To read book 3, Lover Awakened, click here ==>Lover Awakened Book Review.
And then there’s Marissa. Sweet, delicate Marissa who’s been sheltered from the world like a prized piece of art. But don’t let that fool you – she’s got a backbone as strong as a vampire’s thirst for blood. Her journey from timid damsel to kick-ass heroine is nothing short of inspiring.
My Thoughts on the Book
Butch’s journey of self-discovery is as entertaining as it is eyebrow-raising. And let’s not forget the mesmerizing world-building – Ward’s version of the vampire society is so intricate. Between Butch’s discovery, fights, and the undeniable attraction between him and the vampire Marissa, you’ll flip pages or Lover Revealed faster than a vamp on a Red Bull binge. Their chemistry is so red hot it could melt the icecaps – and let’s be honest, that might not be the worst thing for the planet right now.
Now, let’s talk about the vampires themselves. Wrath, Rhage, Vishous, and the gang are back, and they’re just as brooding and sexy as ever. These guys are the Avengers of the vampire world. If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like if superheroes had a knack for perfectly timed one-liners and bickering like a dysfunctional family, wonder no more.
The camaraderie among these guys is the stuff of legends. The banter between characters is so quick-witted you’ll be flipping pages. And let’s not forget the action. From daring rescues to epic battles, “Lover Revealed” keeps you on the edge of your seat – or bed, if you’re reading in the comfort of your boudoir – and rooting for the characters.
The Warden ~ The Plot Queen
But the real star of the show? The author, J.R. Ward’s writing style. It’s like she took the sass of a stand-up comedian, the heat of a romance novelist, and the imagination of a fantasy writer and threw them all into a blender (probably while wearing a leather jacket, naturally). The result is a cocktail of humor, heart, and hunky vampires that goes down smoother than a well-aged bourbon.
The book was long, well they all are. The books are so amazing that I can’t get to the end fast enough; however, The Black Dagger Brotherhood series generally consists of longer books, which might be a con for readers who prefer shorter reads.
“Darkness will never take me…because I have you. Light of my life, Marissa. That’s what you are.”
Lover Revealed is a page-turner that will make you question your allegiance to the sun (who needs daylight when you have these vampires?), and have you wondering if it’s possible to have a torrid love affair with a fictional character. With its heart-pounding action, jaw-dropping romance, and more testosterone than a lumberjack convention, this book is a must-read for anyone who’s ever looked at a vampire and thought, “You know, I bet he’d look great in leather pants.”
So, Black Dagger Brotherhood fanatics, if you’re ready to read a book that is equal parts thrilling and tantalizing, “Lover Revealed” is that book you won’t soon forget.
Cheers to Ward for revealing more than just love in this gem of a book! 🍷📚🩸
