Lover Unbound (Black Dagger Brotherhood #5)
The ruthless and brilliant brother Vishous possesses a destructive curse and a frightening ability to see the future. As a member of the Brotherhood, he has no interest in love or emotion, only the battle with the Lessening Society. But when a mortal injury puts him in the care of a human surgeon, Dr. Jane Whitcomb compels him to reveal his inner pain...more
This isn't a review, it's a rant and it's full of spoilers. There are plenty of reviews of this book all around and I don't feel like writing another one. BUT I do need to get this anger off my chest, so here I go...
First off, let me say that I was warned about the crappy ending of this book beforehand. I wasn't thrilled about it, but I was willing to give Ms. Ward the chance to prove me that she had pulled it off in a satisfying way when all was said and done. Well, she didn't... at least, not ...more
“When I want you to beg, I’ll tell you.” His tongue was warm and wet as it rode up her neck. “Now ask me what I’m going to do to you.”...more
She opened her mouth, but could only pant.
He tightened the hold on her hair. “Ask me. Say, ‘What are you going to do to me?’”
She swallowed. “What…what are you going to do to me?”
He wheeled her to one side, all the while keeping his hips tight to her ass. “You see that sink, Jane?”
“Yes…” Holy shit, she was going to orgasm—
“I’m going to bend you over that sink and
I had read and greatly enjoyed the first four volumes of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series, but after seeing many negative ratings and reviews for Lover Unbound, I procrastinated about reading it. Admittedly, it's predecessor, Lover Revealed, had probably been my least favorite of the series thus far, and somehow I allowed all the low ratings to influence me into thinking that Lover Unbound was the worst book in the series to date. Well, after finally reading it, nothin ...more
Vishous is now my favorite member of the brotherhood... TRUE!
“Terrific. A bisexual dominant vampire with kidnapping expertise.”
I loved Vishous, I loved Jane, I just LOVED this book!!!!!
Things have been ‘off’ with Vishous for a while now. His visions have dried up. He’s not sleeping well, having nightmares. And to top it off, he has feelings for his roommate, Butch, who is mated to Marissa. V copes by drinking Goose, and going to his penthouse for some fun.
His ‘birthday’ is coming up. T ...more
Tinged with sadness, overwhelmingly touching, out there heart thumping style falling in love, Family bond like no other, tears, pain, angst, soul bearing eternal love ~ Yes I just got a little bit more of my fix for the Brotherhood.
I'm pretty sure my reviews are becoming predictable with this series but I can't apologise. The black dagger stories grab, me, turn me upside down and back to front, ensure that I am helplessly in love and for several hours consume me. So with that bei ...more
The way that JR Ward wrote this book did it. She put so much love and effort into telling this man's story that you couldn't help but love him. I love h ...more
“I love you. And I'm going to keep loving you even after you don't know I exist.”
Vishous is officially my favorite brother. I couldn’t choose between him and Z but after rereading his book I felt that he deserved the first place.
He was always distant from the other brothers but he actually developed a deep relationship with his buddy Butch.I liked what was happening between them and V's inner monologues made me hurt for him.
During the whole book we get to know him bett ...more
~AWESOME, WITH AN UNCONVENTIONAL ENDING~
Book 5 in JR Wards sexy Black Dagger Brotherhood series is all about Vishous and "Doc" Jane. It's another great addition and I really enjoyed witnessing V let his guard down and fall in love. I found him to be surprisingly considerate and gentle especially for someone who's into sadomasochism. His falling for Jane is believable and makes sense as she's his intellectual equal and he respects her for it. Sh ...more
5 Wickedly Sexy.....VISHOUS stars
This is the fifth book in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series and in my opinion....the best one yet!!! This is the story of V and Jane.
Vishous has a dark side and doesn't do relationships....until he meets Dr. Jane. They meet under not so great circumstances....but the chemistry is instant and incredibly hot. Will Jane fall under V's spell? I know i would...LOL! You will just have to read it to find out...go look at my V pics in my review and you tell me you're ...more
Jane Whitcomb’s talents aren’t nearly as interesting. She’s a human. She’s an outstanding surgeon. She swears a lot. And she smarts off to Vishous, which is a major turn on for him (go figure).
So what happens when ...more
A lot of BDB series fans were unhappy with this book, but I loved it. I thought the relationship between warrior/brother Vishous and smart doc Jane was refreshing and incredibly sexy. The BDSM scenes were erotic, yet surprisingly sweet and tender. V is a total badass, and I love the way he and Butch sling teasing jibes and quips left and right at each other, yet there’s a deep, underlying respect and affection between them that adds a beautiful element to the story and ...more
I am not one of those people. I really loved this book. Yes, it is not the easy happily ever after that we are used to, but dang...it was still good.
Plus, I know that everything happens for a purpose with this series...there is a REAS ...more
“I believe there's a hand that guides us. It just isn't always a gentle one. Or one that seems fair at the time. But I dunno, I try to trust in it now. When I freak, I just try to... shit, I guess trust in it. Because at the end of the day, what else can you do? Choice only gets you so far. Reasoning and planning too. The rest... it's up to someon ...more
V....v...v... You + Jane + Bathroom scene =
I still loved this book but hated the ending...
V my man.. What’s doing?!
V is such a dude… I love him, not as in a “want to strip him naked and do inappropriate things to him” way like I do with Z, but as in a let’s share some Goose (also my fav!) and listen to rap, while watching sports kind of way …
This book tells the Story of V and a very stubborn, cocky, smart-ass, smart, sexy Doc Jane. She’s kinda like a female ve ...more
“We don’t? Then explain why you’re in my wonder-fucking-land.”
This book made me smile, made me swoon, warmed my heart, made me sad, and made me sob shoulder shaking tears......... Why???
“He was six feet, six inches tall and built like a brick shithouse.”
He's a genius who would rival Einstein, he's sexually experienced in the extreme...in ALL areas imaginable and I mean ALL. He has particular needs in order to quench his appetite.....to achieve orgasm and satisfy his bloo ...more
I can't do this review justice because there is so much going on in this book that anytime you want to say something, I think it would be a spoiler. JR Ward gave me so much about so many of the characters that my review would be so long that you would have to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner reading my review!! Here is my condensed version.
Hot, Dangerous, Sexy, Dominant, His Body, His Eyes, Tattoos, Bisexual, Intelligent, Technology Wiz, Smart Ass- some of the words ...more
♡ 4.5 STARS. ♡
"Falling into ruin was a bit like falling in love: Both descents stripped you bare and left you as you were at your core."
Although I really enjoyed Vishous and Jane's story, I didn't love this book as much as some of the previous parts in the series. Don't get me wrong, I loved Vishous and Jane's storyline and I thought they made a perfect couple with Jane being one of the few women, strong and determined enough to stand up to someone like V. And V's past was just so heartbreaki ...more
5 Vee-licious Stars!! My favorite of the series so far!!
Butch's book, Lover Revealed, was such a disappointment, I was hesitant to continue the series, but I loved V so much, I needed to find out if he got a heroine worthy of him! Well the other half of the bromance got his due and J.R Ward hit it OUT OF THE PARK in Lover Unbound!!
Jane and V...a match made in Brotherhood heaven!! No back and forth with Jane, she lays it all out there, stands her ground, but once she was in, she was in...and b ...more
IT'S VISHOUS TIME !!!!!!! ❤❤❤❤❤
TIME TO SHINE MY BROTHER
and not that sparkly diamond skin....like some other vampires we know...Vishous has a hand that glows that can heal you or annihilate you....Your choice....
I had NO idea what to expect going into V's book. It threw me for a loop. I even found myself back tracking and rereading what I just read....
What the F was happening?
So....to sum it up the best I can....frankly this is th ...more
Second Read November 2014 : 3.5 stars
Weird. Before this series re-read, I didn't expect to like Butch's book less than I did the first time, and V's book more than I did before. That turned out to be a complete switcheroo. I didn't end up down-rating Butch's book, but I decided to raise my rating on V's. I think I was so annoyed with Jane's "solution" in this book the first time I read it, that it hampered my enjoyment of the outcome. Now that I've gotten used t ...more
I read this book in one sitting. I wanted to love this book, instead I loved it and kinda...disliked it.
First things first....
1) multiple storyline and continuing arcs. I adore the way JR Ward juggles the storylines. We have Vishous' story front and center, we have John's ongoing arc and then we have the beginnings of Phury's story. She slides from one to the other effortlessly and keeps them so interesting that I'd didn't skip impatiently over one to get to the others ...more
Let's start by saying that I was a fairly unimpressed by the previous book, Lover Revealed (you can read my review here). What it boiled down to was that Marissa (aka Mrs. Buzzkillington) left a bad taste in my mouth. She was weak-willed, whiny, and spoiled... And totally killed my enjoyment of the book...
So I was beyond thrilled w ...more
V is my type of swoon worthy male. He knows the right thing to say the ladies. "I love you. And I'm going to keep loving you even after you don't know I exist."
The two top Vampires in this series for me are Rhage and V who both share something in common: they are in love with humans. That gives me hope that I could find a BRB and live HAPPILY EVER AFTER. As long as my husband doesn't mind.
I'm glad that Ms. Ward didn't take the easy way out and give Jane the same fate ...more
And that's a good thing because Vishous is an extremely intriguing character indeed. One with a very extensive, shocking and often heart breaking back story.
In my opinion the transition of the series from PNR to UF is already apparent in this book. The story is layered, told from many perspectives and the romance doesn't overshadow the action. And even ...more
The sex was kinky as shit! The black candles, the gags, and the restraints, yeah...who wouldn’t jump in like Jane did when V aske ...more
First thing first, Lover Unbound didn’t have any lesser pov chapters, which was PLUS!! I was getting tired of those baby powder scented heartless creatures and I enjoyed the break because we get more of Phury and John in this book.
This book sheds light on Vischous’ past, his parents, his upbringing, his sexuality and his future. Vischous has been a pretty complex character since book one. He sees the future, he has special power in his hand, he owns a penthouse which is his playroom and he has s ...more
I went into Lover Unbound knowing that many readers hold this book as their favorite in the series so far, with Vishous being the Brother they “love” the most. Needless to say, I had high hopes for this book. I was expecting a repeat of what I went through reading Lover Awakened (Z’s story). This book kinda fell short for me. I liked it, but there was also so much about it that I simply could not get past. To be honest, I’m completely on the fence about this one ...more
After reading Lover Unbound I find myself in awe of Mrs. Ward's writing skills.
Ok ! let’s see what I most like :
**J.R. Ward managed to create a deep bond between Vishous and Jane in a very short time that was both intellectual and emotional, and which I found to be very beautiful.
**The ending was certainly not traditional in any way but I like it!
**One other thing of liking was the BDSM element :D
** Phury …
** Of course his blood tastes… like …
** Also I enjoyed learning ...more
