Lover Avenged by J.R. Ward

Clear rating

3.5 stars. Ward's cracktastic storytelling fell apart for me a bit in this book. The narrative tone felt cheesy and adolescent, with the incessant Brand name droppings and written equivalents of eye-rolling, and it really bothered me that everyone's internal voice sounded the same. Being less caught up in the story made it harder to tolerate the high level of violence and grossness. And the hero... well, drug dealing and murder are kind of hard to excuse, and I didn't feel that issue was satisfactorily resolved.

But there were also many touching moments, with a theme of family relationships and sorrow running through the book. And of course Tohr, John Matthew and Xhex broke my heart.
