Lover Unbound (Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 5)

J.R. Ward
The ruthless and brilliant brother Vishous possesses a destructive curse and a frightening ability to see the future. As a member of the Brotherhood, he has no interest in love or emotion, only the battle with the Lessening Society. But when a mortal injury puts him in the care of a human surgeon, Dr. Jane Whitcomb compels him to reveal his inner pain and taste true pleasure for the first time-until a destiny he didn't choose takes him into a future that does not include her...

I think so far, Z's book is my favorite, but I liked this one as well. I've had a few issues with it. It seemed a bit strange to me that Jane was so willing to do what V wanted in his penthouse, because it seemed a bit out of character and not very realistic to just jump in to that with no explanation or safety words or anything. But I guess that could just be me, as it's not really something I'm into reading about.

I liked V and I also liked Jane. They were enjoyable and parts were fun to read about. Looking back I didn't feel the attraction between them as much as I did between the other couples in the other books. I'm happy V has his own HEA and I felt bad for him when that HEA was threatened - and then I felt a bit weird about how it was resolved. But overal I did like them both a lot - it just felt like it all went a little too fast, too serious without enough explanation/scenes. I loved the first half of the book a lot more then the second half.

I loved that there were no lesser chapters in this one - I tend to skim them as I just really don't find them interesting and I liked seeing more of the chosen and their environment and V and the Scribe Virgin.

Wasn't a major fan of the Phury chapters in this book, so maybe I'll give myself a break from this series for a while, to get excited about the next book again.

I wasn't exactly excited to read this book. Especially since most of the books before seemed like a bit of a chore to read. This book pleasantly surprised me! I absolutely LOVED this book. I had a hard time putting it down. I think Vishous is my favorite brother and Doc Jane was pretty awesome as well. Honestly if there were more books written about Vishous and Doc Jane I would read and devour them all. I found Vishous very intriguing. From the beginning of the book I felt a deeper connection with him than the rest of the brothers. I was a little surprised that Doc Jane fit with Vishous so well because Vishous always seemed a bit hardcore, but Doc Jane took that in stride. I'll admit I cried in parts of the book, but I was very thrilled with the ending. The humor that was scattered throughout the book was wonderful too. If you read the Black Dagger Brotherhood series you definitely need to read this book!
