I really don't think that I need to include the blurb for this book! Everyone has jumped on this bandwagon and knows that the latest Black Dagger Brotherhood novel is all about John Matthew and Xhex. This long awaited for romance definitely did not disappoint! It captured me from the very first page. I finished LOVER MINE over a week ago, but have been so wrapped up in trying to get some books read, which I only accomplished one, playing Mafia Wars, and joining new yahoo groups that I have been very bad in not getting my thoughts on my blog.

I have not always been a big fan of Xhex, but I have to say that she does make the perfect mate for John Matthew. LOVER MINE keeps you on an emotional roller coaster that has you loving to hate Xhex and breaking your heart not only for JM but for Blay and Qhuinn as well. I think that for content alone this one has just become my favorite BDB book...I still have my ranking of the Brothers and JM has never been number 1, but I loved his story! I kept waiting for Xhex to figure out that JM was not Darius's son but Darius himself, but of course it never happened.

I really didn't get why JR Ward deviated so far south to the Plantation and the investigation of ghosts. I understand now that she needed a way to leave an opening for the next book, which unfortunately won't be Blay and Qhuinn's story... because these Brothers really need to get their Happily Ever After!!

Rating: 5 stars

Hmmm... your review has me curious. I have this on hold at my library. I think I am number 2, so it should be too long. I am glad to hear that this is very emotional. Cool!

I loved the book. Ward did not disappoint me in the least bit. I think she did well, it was a hard story to write when you have both the hero and the heroine in such pain and dealing with the past that was horrendous and the future which is filled with love and light. I believe Ward pulled it off. I have been emotionally "wrung out" by the story and happy that I have read it.
