I love the Brothers and I look forward to the books, but this one was not up to par. It seemed forced. Reaching for a story line. She took the characters out of character. Broke Black dagger rules..... I am over the new love stories of added characters... Please start telling us what is going on with the "real" brothers that we fell in love with but never get to hear about anymore. This was truly boring. And stop adding everyone to the brotherhood.
That there girl
Fantastic finish to a story that needed to be told!
But you can't read an entire series, more then once I might add, and shy away from characters who you love just because it's gay. I kept avoiding the book, not sure I could handle this one. But my OCD got the best of me. I can't skip one in a series, the world might end. Besides, these are all my boys. Ward did the subject and the characters justice. In the end we can't help who we love, it just simply is. As soon as I started reading I was glad I did. Well done.
One day I was staring at the ceiling thinking about the black dagger brotherhood books and a thought came to me! J. R Ward should do a book about Quinn and Blay. So I wrote her an email begging her to make this happen....to find out she already is. I was so excited for this book...who cares if it involves homosexuality... This book meet my expectations and it's one of my favorites. Still no book will ever beat Lover Awakened with Z and Bella.
When I found out the author finally was going to write Q & B's story I was so excited (Aside from Rhage, Butch & V's stories, this was the one I most looked forward to...something about forbidden & unrequited love that had me yearning for a happily ever after). It had been years since I read this series and I wanted to get reacquainted with the characters again so I reread all the books again, in like a WEEK! No small feat. I felt jipped. Not only was too much time spent on new characters, which we don't even get much resolution for those stories...just a set up for another book, but the all that rejection & pushing away by Blay and him just being "over it" was irritating. I had imagined an entirely different chain of events. I liked Saxton's character but having Blay so changed by another lover kind of takes away from the dynamic of what draws you into their story. I did however like that we got to see Qhuinn open up emotionally. I guess what I had hoped for was in previous books Qhuinn was like this sex god, so when I thought of Blay finally getting what he wanted I imagined Blay as the shy virgin type and Qhuinn as the strong possessive teacher type. But in this story it's almost the opposite. I would have liked it to end with an actual mating ceremony, not just a dance. Although, I do look forward to Trez & Selena and Assail & Sola's stories. And I'm really intrigued with Xcor & Layla...will they find their own happily ever after, cus it's hard to imagine, with him being the "enemy".
Loved the book! It was about time these two got together.
She did it again!!! Great book with a great twist!! Can't wait for the next ones!!!
