Lover Unleashed By J.R. Ward Review

Lover Unleashed (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #9)Lover Unleashed by J.R. Ward

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

._._Epic Sexual Healing_._.

**In this review, some small spoilers may occur along with some offensive language if you haven‘t ventured into the BDB world**

Lover Unleashed is the 9th book of J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood series. This one is focused on Payne and Manny, and simultaneously gives us the much needed fix of lady wood given by the smokin’ hot members of the Brotherhood.

Payne is twin sister to Vishous. Not only do they share the same, most unlikely, parents, they share a dark side and the tormented feeling of never fitting in to any of the vampire worlds. While Vishous and Payne have an instant bond over the fucked-upness of their long lives, they also butt heads when things get tough right off the bat. Payne gets a paralyzing injury which brings the brilliant surgeon, Dr. Manual Manello, back into the BDB world. Payne and Manny have a case of love and lust at first sight. Vishous immediately gets into his balls to the walls mood feeling overprotective. First off with how his Jane idolizes his mad surgeon skills and, secondly, paralyzed Payne wanting use of her legs back just so she can jump the handsome healer. While V deals with his worsening issues that he never healed from in his book, Payne gets an unexpected method of healing from Manny allowing her to walk again and pulling her from her stuck in a dark pit hopeless mood. For once in her life, Payne gets her first glimpse of happiness, but it doesn’t come easy. Manny can’t help falling just as hard as Payne does, but he feels his own kind of emptiness and misery. knowing that he’ll just be discarded when Payne is fully out of the paralyzed woods. Payne and her Healer go through smoldering and complicated rough patches giving us BDB readers that much needed heated encounters and soulful longing.

Even though the spotlight is mostly on Payne and Manny’s healing lovefest, we get a deeper glimpse into the mind of my favorite brother, V. And where there’s V there’s Butch. Their interactions, even through intense scenes, are entertaining and hot. We also get some peaks at what’s doin’ with Qhuinn and the self implicated mind fuck he’s got himself running on since he rejected Blay out of fear. Back to our lead, Payne has a past enemy from the Old Country coming back in the picture. The Old Country band of bastards leak some new kind of badass sexyness that is entirely different from our much loved Brothers. Their agenda is about to turn the BDB world upside down.

Lover Unleashed was a great addition to the BDB world. It definitely has its own new flavor given the focus is on a strong, lethal and sexy female lead. The female version of V? Hell yes, it’s almost too much sexy in one gene pool. I only wish there was more of her in the book than there was. I could have done without the Jose de la Cruz stuff, but I know it serves its purpose in future books. Payne and her healer’s love affair is an intense and captivating one, just like all the other BDB couples. Payne on her own has some killer lines. One of my favorite lines of the book, delivered to Vishous was… “Yes, I am in love with him. And if you try to dissuade me by the fact that I have not lived yet enough to judge, I say unto you… fuck off. I need not know the world to realize my heart’s desire.” Let me tell ya, a woman who says “unto” and “fuck off” in the same sentence is perfection to me. Definitely a girl I want to kick it with. Last but not least, L.U. is filled with that primal grunted word that we can’t get enough of.. “Mine” and now we can add the way Payne huskily says “Healer” to that list if sexy words. Tooo hot. Loved this book as much as I loved the rest of them and Payne is by far my favorite female in the incredible world of BDB.

Vampire Academy Goodies

The Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead has been one of my favorite series for awhile. Some people might be getting sick of the whole vampire genre, but, really, what's to get sick of when it's done right? The VA series might be over, but, luckily, we have a spinoff series heading our way. Bloodlines is set to hit shelves August 23.

Old news out of the way, a few of my regular online hangouts have been letting me know the VA series is getting its own graphic novel. Yea baby! Since there's been not much set in stone when it comes to the development of the movie, this is a very welcome bit of news. This is one of those series that will be stunning visually whether it be on film or drawn up. I came across this picture (on Richelle's facebook page) that Arcane Vault has been working on to get released in August.

Freakin' delicious, right?

Here is the cover to the VA graphic novel.

And a wicked piece fan art for the icing on the cake..

"Would you take that straw out of your looks like you're sucking on a.. **cough cough cough**"

This movie trailer, "Crazy, Stupid, Love", had me at Ryan Gosling. As if that wasn't enough the rest of the cast is made up of Steve Carrell, Emma Stone and Marissa Tomei. Sizzling and genius casting if you ask me. Not only does it look funny, it seems to have a hint of a dark side and some much needed heart.

Lookin' Forward

MTV is giving Teen Wolf a reboot. However, only thing that is similar is the title and this version is a series not a movie. This version seems darker and sexier with a nod to the Vampire Diaries style and I'm lovin' it. Only bad news is, it doesn't premier until June 5th.

A release closer by that I'm stoked for is the remake of Arthur with Russel Brand and Rachel Mirrien. I just love his mannerism and the pairing seems entertaining and endearing. Oh yes.. and I just love him.. tight trousers and all lol. It opens April 8.

Will you give either movie or show a watch?

PS .. Don't forget the fourth instalment to the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare came out this week. Can't wait to dig into that shadowhunter goodness when I've paced myself through Lover Unleashed.

Thor the God of thunder is striking

There's more than a handful of superhero movies coming our way this year.Marvel's "Thor" is one I can get down with. Natalie Portman is usually the hot lil number in her movies, but she's out-hotted by Chris Hemsworth. I could definitely see him fitting the roles of some of the paranormal romance series characters. Thor hits theaters May 6.

Afterlife by Claudia Gray Review

Afterlife (Evernight, #4)Afterlife by Claudia Gray

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

>>3.5 Stars<<

**Spoilers for the previous books. Spoiler free for this one**

Afterlife is the final book in the Evernight series by Claudia Gray.

In the previous book, Hourglass, we were left with Bianca dying and turning into a wraith and Lucas was brutally murdered turned into a vampire by Charity, Balthazar’s psycho vampire sister. Poor Bianca and Lucas just can’t catch a break. They seem to have triple the amount of problems that fellow starcrossed lovers, Romeo and Juliet, had. Even though Bianca is a wraith, she has special abilities that set her apart from the rest of her kind, allowing her to interact with everything in the world like she could when she was alive. She battles with herself over if she should kill Lucas before he wakes up in his new vampire body. But when she can’t do it, whether it be out of weakness, selfishness or just undying love, he wakes and still finds himself as in love with Bianca as he was when he was human. Seeing through the eyes of the monster that Lucas has been taught to hate and kill his whole life changes his view on everything. He struggles immensely with his bloodlust and the urge to drink dry anyone with a beating heart. Afterlife is all about Bianca and Lucas coping with their afterlives and the adjustments to keep their undying love going, even when it seems all forces in the universe are out to kill them or rip them apart by any means.

Afterlife was a good closing book for the Evernight series. It wasn’t highly exciting, but it stays true to the usual flow and atmosphere of the rest of the series. We get more insight into all the supporting characters and, with a throw back to the previous books, some good bonding happens between our lovable group of misfits, making the final book stronger and more memorable. I really liked this series. It had a great starcrossed lover style that takes the series to the next step with lots of paranormal goodies. Some final twists were added, ends were neatly tied and I found myself satisfied with how it all turned out and hopefully you will be also
