Verily, Ward, you hath redeemed thyself in mine eyes.

Lover Unleashed was disappointing for me on several levels. But I knew that, if Ward did it right, Tohrment's book had the potential to be the best installment to the series in a long time. I've wanted him to find peace and healing ever since that fateful scene at the end of Lover Awakened, but I knew it would take time. And now that his time has finally come, I'm pleased to say that Ward doesn't disappoint.

Just a fair warning: This book buttfucked me raw without lube (~*spoiler*~ pun intended) and destroyed my heart and sanity. My feelings are all over the place and I need to vent. Cursing, spoilers and inappropriate gifs ahead.

A year ago when Ward announced Tohr was next, I got so mad. It was too soon for him, it felt rushed, he wasn't ready, she was fucking him up, etc. And sadly, I still stand on that.

Thoughts Before Reading:

When will the WARDen give us Qhuinn’s/Blaylock’s story, dammit?!?!? I don’t give a @*#&$ about Tohr!? I want Qhuay!!!!

Thoughts After Reading:

This is me coughing up feathers after eating crow because Lover Reborn was sooo much better than I expected. It’s an emotional read that had me shedding serious tears and an a+wesome installment to the series!

And now that the Warden has officially announced on Facebook that Blay and Qhuin...more

Leteth it be known that on this day, March 31st, 2012, I solemnly vow that I shall never doubt the WARDen again!

So, now that that's out of the way, my thoughts on the book...

I wasn’t sure she could do it. Pffffft! Silly me.

I didn't think she could pull it off. *sigh* Whatever was I thinking?

With Lover Reborn, Ward partly redeems herself for last book. I can't say she's back to her old level though. To me, the book was a 4 star start and a 2 star finish. There were lots of okay moments, some very beautiful moments and some seriously contrived, idiotic and redundant moments. So I ended up with 3 stars.
Despite this I think this book came too soon and didn't do justice to Tohr, his needs, and his relationship with neither Wellsie or No'One. More on that later, I'm going to start with...more

"He waited for his conscience to start screaming.
He prepared himself for an overwhelming desolation that he had been with another female.
He was… ready for something, anything to cough up out of his chest—despair, anger, frustration.
All he got was the sense that what had just happened was the beginning, not an end."




Lover Reborn is a heartbreaking story, even though it has a happy end.
Watching Tohrment and his suffering, trying to let go of Wellsie... It was sad and beautiful at the same time,

Well Xcor and Layla might be hooking up.and than Quinn and Layla trying 2 get knock up. SMH. Anyways the book was awesome. All of JR Wards books are awesome. When Thor let go of his Wellsie that was so emotional. And opening his heart for Autumn was so beautiful. It had me crying.Can't wait for Quinn and Blay book. It's about time!!!!!! I know one thing John and Xhexania sure did have some very intensive sex. They both out did Thor and Autumn. Lmao!!!!

Well, I was a little worried about how this book (Tohr's story) might play out. Tohr has been in misery over losing his Wellsie for just over 15 months (has it only been 15 months? It seems so much longer...) Anyway, in this book he has to move on and get past his grief because Wellsie is (view spoiler)...more

Opening Line "The bastard's taking the bridge! He's mine!"

Wow, I honestly don’t know where to begin with this review. To say that this was good is an understatement. To say that it knocked me on my ass and left me a drained, emotional wreck, is far closer to the truth. Yup, LOVER REBORN did me in, talk about your gauntlet of emotions, I mean I expected some angst but jeez! I cried (I mean really cried) I laughed, I sighed, I swore, I groaned and I gasped but in the end I also smile...more

Normally I never curse in a review, but today I'm going to so I'm warning you now. This book pushed me over the edge- in good ways and bad, so an F bomb is appropriate at times. I'm also reviewing it spoiler free. My first spoiler-free review ever! See, there is a first time for everything.

*sigh* Where to begin?

I don't really have much juice left to write a full blown review. This book just kind of...drained me. Here are some thoughts that I'll share, however...

(Note that it's pretty much spoiler-free, in my opinion. Possible spoilers have been hidden behind spoiler tags.)

1) WRITING: The slang. ARGH, THE SLANG! No matter what ANYONE says or thinks (*coughs* JRW! *coughs*), "Pop-Tarting" is not a word that can be used interchangeably with jerking something upwards. Not at all. Also...more

5 TOHRMENT STARS

“Life was short, no matter how many days you were granted. And people were precious, each and every one, no matter how many you were lucky enough to have in your life. And love... love was worth dying for."



I thought I couldn't possibly love this series more and I'm convinced I'm becoming annoyingly predictable with my black dagger five star ratings, but quite frankly I just can't help myself. 'Lover reborn' had all the usual ingredients dished out in one well written book, action...more

“God, I miss you,” he said in a voice that cracked. “Every night. Every day…”

Even though Tohr’s shellan has been gone for a while, it still hasn’t gotten any easier for the brother. He is heartbroken, devastated, all he can do is fight the lessers, fight to avenge his shellans death. That’s all he has the strength for.

We meet No’One in book 8 (JM and Xhex’s book) She is Xhex’s mahmen, and she has been staying on this side to try to form a connection with her daughter....more

There aren’t spoilers present, but I’m still warning you to read at your own risk.

Tohr - No one deserves a happily ever after more than he does. His grief is potent and moving, causing me to tear up as expected. I love that Ward took this one slow. It was needed for the type of distance Tohr had to travel.

No ‘One - To be honest, I wasn’t expecting much from No ‘One but I have to say that I enjoyed reading about her genteel spirit and quiet strength. She has her own past to outrun so Tohr and h...more

We are now on the tenth Black Dagger Brotherhood book and I still love this series as much as I did when I started Dark Lover, for me this series never gets old. When I first started reading though I never though Tohrment would need a book of his own, he already had his shellan, Wellsie, but shit happens and Tohr is now drowning in his own grief, which is not only killing himself, but is preventing Wellsie and...more

Initial thoughts – For those who don’t know, I love the BDB. These are my boys. For me, Lover Reborn is so much better than the previous book, Lover Unleashed. The romance, the smexy times, the supporting characters, we have much to talk about. Let’s get to it.

Tohr/No’One/Lassiter

Oh boy. Well, let’s get right to Wellsie. First let me say, while I was sad Wellsie died, I was not one of those people who was overly devastated. Just so you know where I am coming from. But I WAS concerned about how J...more

I will admit I had no faith whatsoever in this read. The brothers show so much love for their Shellans and Tohr has been missing Whelsie so much that I never thought to see him falling all over again in love with someone else could really be possible.

I'm just so happy I was wrong! This has been an amazing read and the series went back to what it used to be at the beginning. I was getting so freaking bored of the Lessers, so this new enemy (which IMHO isn't really the enemy) was great! Everything...more
Jen (Red Hot Books)
I'll tell you what: JR Ward gave me my money's worth with Lover Reborn. A far cry from the anemic Lover Unleashed, this book is massive in scale. It brought me back to the characters I care about. It gives the primary romance the attention it is due, and weaves in subplots that interest me. Ward revisits old relationships and lays the groundwork for new ones. She made me laugh; She made me cry; She made me curse. She took me on a journey and made me glad to be back in Caldwell.

I wasn't happy wit...more

In V's words "Fan-fucking-tastic!"

An emotional roller coaster ride that had me tearing up one minute and laughing the next.

Loved the connection between No'One and Tohr, it was something that was built slowly, raw emotions out there for the taking. Not to mention the heat between them, YOWZA!

Tohr's loss serves as the catalyst for his struggling brothers...
The BDB rallies behind their king, their cause, and each other...
Man, destiny sucked ass. It just had to barge in and piss all over everyone's rose garden.
And now it was taking a shit in the other flower beds.
Before we get started, I want to make sure I sing several praises of this book, because it was not all fun for me...

There was a lot more laughter and witty dialogue from the Brotherhood in this Novel. that kind of easy ban...more

This was a roller coaster of a ride for me....my emotions were all over the place. One minute I am sad and near tears, than I am laughing, than I am mad as hell!! I was on the fence about it being too soon for Tohr to move on but it worked beautifully.

{{Beware I'm trying to do this spoiler free but use your discretion}}

So, we finally get to Tohr's book...The Brother that lost his beloved mate and almost lost his life grieving and dealing with all the denial and all the heartbreak...did J.R. Ward do it justice? I say yes...for the most part.

I notched it down a half star just because I felt some of the things were way too harsh! And it wasn't just Tohr, JM had some really harsh words too but Tohr went too far for me. And I felt re...more
