Review: Lover Unleashed by J.R. Ward

Released: March 29, 2011
Publisher: NAL Hardcover
Rated: Adult
Buy Lover Unleashed

Payne, twin sister of Vishous, is cut from the same dark, seductive cloth as her brother. Imprisoned for eons by their mother, the Scribe Virgin, she finally frees herself-only to face a devastating injury. Manuel Manello, M.D., is drafted by the Brotherhood to save her as only he can-but when the human surgeon and the vampire warrior meet, their two worlds collide in the face of their undeniable passion. With so much working against them, can love prove stronger than the birthright and the biology that separates them?

What I thought:

I was feeling like this series was needing to unwind soon, I enjoyed the last three books fairly well, but they didn't really seem to advance the story much.  After reading this one, it feels like a fresh start.  The story was great, we got to see more of our favorite characters in better detail and the new added storyline with Xcor was great.  I think this will keep readers entertained until the series is wrapped up.

I liked Payne and Manny.  But after reading the previous books with Payne I was expecting a more kickass chick.  While she wasn't a docile chosen, she wasn't the badass I thought her to be when sparring with Wrath either. The romance for Payne and Manny seemed very weak compared to others in the series.  While it wasn't completely disappointing, it didn't get me worked up either.  I remember reading the first one and thinking it was something I couldn't talk to my mom about... not so much with this one.

There seems to be a few loose ends from the previous books that I would have liked to see something happen with, one being Lash.

There was one bit grievance with this book that had me cringing and grinding my teeth everytime I came upon it.  Elongated words (Annnnnnnnd, for example).  All over the place.  I don't recall this in any of the other books, but it was overused and down right annoying by the time I finished the book.  I'm hoping that these are fewer and farther between in the next book.

Great review! The elongated word thing would bug me as well - especially if it is used quite a lot! I haven't read this author yet, but have really been wanting to!

Aimee said...

April, her books are worth it! It was only this one and she must have been on some kind of kick!

I still have some catching up to do on this series so it'll be awhile before I get to this one, but I'm glad it was good! Even with the annoying elongated words.
