Lover At Last: A Novel of the Black Dagger Brotherhood

Lover at Last - J.R. Ward Who is she getting her intel into street mentality and terminology from? County lock-up? THE SLANG IN THIS BOOK WAS LIKE TRYING TO SKATE ON GRAVEL. YOU CONSTANTLY GET TRIPPED UP! It is just TOO FU*KING MUCH! SERIOUSLY. I felt Like I was taking a HOOD 101 class.

Lover at Last. Thinking on it. I am glad that Blay and Qhuinn got their story and not just a short.

The over-all story arc is going nowhere, went nowhere, for the last 2 or 3 books now. No big lesser or Brotherhood showdown, just an addition of characters and a quick hello from others.

I really wanted and felt that Q and B should have had romance, true romance. Not just I love you because you've been there for me since we were kids, but more of; you're the air I breath, the reason I get up in the morning and the last face I want to see at night kind of love. We didn't get that. We have two souls who just can't seem to get on the same page. Blay carried the whole Saxton secret too far and I honestly felt bad for Sax and hope that he gets a chance at love (didn't I read about iAm or Trez thinking a guy was hot?). Anyways, through most of the book they were angry or hurt because of each other. The love didn't happen until the very end and then the epilogue was kinda cheesy. Qhuinn, you had two weeks to get something together, but you didn't. A tatoo artist for the ring--something, anything is better than you telling him, I didn't get you one and you had everyone there to attend it. No, thanks. Blay put and ring on it and Qhuinn should have too.

As for Assail and Sol...didn't really care.

Layla was a little more tolerable although JR dragged that situation through the mud and back providing filler pages and conflict between Q and B. Did I mention that she wore the hell out of that situation?

Everyone else - Didn't really care
