I give this 4.5 stars and only knock it down from 5 stars because of so many editing problems. But even though that usually ruins a story for me, this story was good enough to make the editing errors not such a big problem. I want more of this series!
BTW, this has blood and guts and death and stuff for those who have a problem with that. ...more

I think the author needs to stop using BDSM as her "I'm a bad boy and I need a good woman to cure me" theme. Add in her theme that a good woman can cure a man of being bi and wow... that is so... wrong! She makes a point of pointing out through Axe's dialogue that there are lots of sane normal people in BDSM, then she goes on to show the exact opposite. She even has an alcoholic and drug user who is seen as superior to someone who is involved with "hardcore sex". And Elise is all okay that Axe is a former druggy who treated his father like shit, but leaves him when she learns he's a member of a sex club. And of course, he has to change to get the girl. Same as V.
Okay, so what I liked. RUHN! And there were tons of important stuff with Rhage and Mary and Bitty. And I liked Axe.
Other than the stuff up top, I'm kinda over how everyone is an asshole to Lassiter. Joking around at first was okay, but in the last 3 books I've read, I've been cringing at it. Why does he stay there? Can't he find someplace where people at least like him? At the end of this book, he is stuck in what is supposed to be a humorous situation. But all I could think of is how if it was anyone else, there would be crying and gnashing of teeth and worry, but even Bitty and Mary shrug it off because it's just Lassiter. The one who was trying to do something special for you two, who has been doing special somethings for you through the whole book, but everyone still treats like shit.
Edited to add: And what's up with Butch being the Dehstroyer? I thought he was supposed to suck up the portion of the Omega in the lessers they kill in order to weaken the Omega. Right? Remember how he got sick after battles because when they popped the lessers back to the Omega he ate their soul or something and V had to help him get over it, conveniently by curling up all nekkid with him? All these battles they get in and only one lately has mentioned anything about Butch having to do that. And yet they are really worried the Omega is about to take the fight to an all new level. The BDB has the prophesied conqueror of the Omega and they just decided to put him on the back burner or something?...more

After the success of Quinn and Blay's book, she's remembered to let her muse free without restrictions. No hard and fast rule that there must be a HEA (see where that got V and Jane?) Ward orchestrated my emotions like a world-class conductor. I'm back in love with this series. :)...more
Okay, I really liked this one. Much better than the last few in the series. I did have a few problems. 1. jerking off and thinking of someone else isOkay, I really liked this one. Much better than the last few in the series. I did have a few problems. 1. jerking off and thinking of someone else is NOT cheating. ugh! Do you not understand that every man has a spank bank? 2. I didn't like the ending. I liked that Qhuinn went to Blay's parents and all. I just don't think any of it sounded like something Qhuinn would do and the 'and they lived happily ever after' was shit.
otherwise, I was okay with it all. I could kinda buy the healing of Layla's pregnancy if I squinted and turned my head at a weird angle. ...more
