Lover Unleashed (Black Dagger Brotherhood #9) Review

Lover Unleashed (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #9)
Few authors give readers such a “powerful rush”* as #1 New York Times bestselling author J.R. Ward does in her phenomenal books of the Black Dagger Brotherhood. Now she returns to that fiercely intoxicating world in a new novel of a woman’s journey from terrifying enslavement to an erotic rapture that proves equally dangerous…

Payne, twin sister of Vishous, is cut from the same dark, warrior cloth as her brother: A fighter by nature, and a maverick when it comes to the traditional role of Chosen females, there is no place for her on the Far Side… and no role for her on the front lines of the war, either.

When she suffers a paralyzing injury, human surgeon Dr. Manuel Manello is called in to treat her as only he can- and he soon gets sucked into her dangerous, secret world. Although he never before believed in things that go bump in the night- like vampires- he finds himself more than willing to be seduced by the powerful female who marks both his body and his soul.

As the two find so much more than an erotic connection, the human and vampire worlds collide … just as a centuries old score catches up with Payne and puts both her love and her life in deadly jeopardy.

Lisa's Review - 4 out of 5 stars

Payne was introduced to us in the last Black Dagger Brotherhood as the sister of Vishous, and in this book we see the pair of them have to come to terms with discovering their sibling and especially on Vishous' side, see him deal with having a sister that had been kept away from him for the most of his life. With this we see the struggles they both go through to accept each other into their lives.

With Payne suffering badly from an accident that has mostly paralyzed her, the Brothers have no choice but to call in Doc Jane's old boss, Manny, to heal her, much to the disgust of V.

When Payne was introduced to the book I didn't really warm to her, and to be honest I found it difficult throughout the whole of this book. I am not really the biggest fan of Manny's either, so I thought I would struggle to get through this book. But by the end of the book, I felt better about them both than I did at the start, and although it most definitely wasn't my favourite out of the whole series, it wasn't terrible.

I liked the fact that in this book things start to get deeper and we really get into the inner depths of the Brothers and the rest of the people living in the Brotherhood mansion. These books are not just about fighting a war anymore, they are going deep into the core of the feelings of the vampires. I already love them all, but it is really starting to delve into the hearts of them, from the pain of being dealt blows from the Scribe Virgin, to the joys of really understanding what it is like to be a mated vampire.

I think there is more to come from Manny and Payne before these books come to an end, purely on the way Manny reacted to Payne, I think there is a bit more to be told about that doctor!
