As Primale of the Chosen, the fiercely loyal Phury has sacrificed himself for the good of his race. But his first mate, the Chosen Cormia, wants not only his body but his heart for herself. As tragedy looms over the Brotherhood’s mansion, Phury must decide between duty and love…

One of the things I love about The Black Dagger Brotherhood series is that there are several plot lines going on at once. This way, if I don't care for the main h/h plot line, I can still enjoy the book overall. I know for some people these multiple story lines don't work, but it's something I love in a series. This was the case with Lover Enshrined. I think this is my least favorite book in the series thus far, mostly because I wasn't really all that invested in Phury and Cormira's story. However, there were so many other great story-lines that, overall, I enjoyed the book.

Lash is going to make an excellent villain. He's so tormented and evil!

We really start getting the Qhay storyline going here. I'm so rooting for these two to get it on. Sigh.

As always I love John Matthew. I've been scanning some of the reviews of Lover Mine and there seem to be two camps: those that love John Matthew and those who are less than impressed with his beta status. I'm totally in the fangirl camp in regards to JM. I'm so pumped to read Lover Avenged and FINALLY, Lover Mine. However, I intersperse my reading with other titles. I can't just read Lover Enshrined, followed immediately by the other two. I get burnt out reading that much of one world. I have to mix it up. So I figure I've got about 5 or 6 books to read yet before I get both of these finished. God I love this series. Even my least favorite in the series doesn't dishearten me. I know Ward has some great things in store in the next two books. I can hardly wait. . . :D Sorry this wasn't much of a review. . . but it's all I had in me today!

Mar Yay Mollie, we are both reading this one! :)

Mollie Awesome! Yes, I REALLY wanna read Lover Mine so I gotta get this one and Rhev's story read ASAP! I just started yesterday, so not very far. It's been awhile since I read V's book, trying to remember what all happened! :)

I'm going to the RT's Booklover's Convention Book Fair tomorrow...hopefully I'll get my copy of LM signed. And one for my Mom for mother's day...ain't I a good daughter?! ;)

Mar Awww you are a good daughter! :)
I'm in the same boat with LE and then Rhevs book next. I just purchased LM yesterday and it's burning a hole in my shelf but I won't read it, I WON'T! I have to go in order and by reading LE, there is a lot I would not know in regards to JM, Blay and that hot piece of ho, Qhuinn.
Happy weekend!

Mollie I know, I can't read a series out of order. Especially this one! ;) Happy Reading!
