Lover Revealed

#1 New York Times bestselling author J. R. Ward’s “instantly addictive”* novels of the Black Dagger Brotherhood return as an ally of the Brotherhood must face his own dark desires....

Butch O’Neal is a fighter by nature. A hard-living ex–homicide cop, he’s the only human ever to be allowed in the inner circle of the Black Dagger Brotherhood. And he wants to go even deeper into the vampire world. He’s got nothing to lose. His heart belongs to a female vampire, an aristocratic beauty who’s way out of his league. If he can’t have Marissa, then at least he can fight side by side with the Brothers....

Fate curses him with the very thing he wants. When Butch sacrifices himself to save a civilian vampire from the slayers, he falls prey to the darkest force in the war. Left for dead, he’s found by a miracle, and the Brotherhood calls on Marissa to bring him back. But even her love may not be enough to save him....

Too many questions left unanswered2 star

I wasn't a fan of this one. There were just so many things that didn't quite add up to me and it still bothers me. Butch seems to have been given part of the Omega - but the Omega can't find him? Thinks he's dead? Doesn't add up - especially as we find out more about how souls return and Lessers are created. I couldn't find a way to believe any of ti. The part I did like was Vishous and learning more about his character and abilities. He's really quite fascinating. A lot of this book was taken up with characters that weren't our main couple. I still struggle with John. I just don't see him as an adult, but more of a 13 year old boy. Learning more about Rehv was amazing. I hope he gets his own story down the line - I think he deserves it. All in all, this just wasn't the one for me. I'm going to move on and get started on the next because I think it's going to be much better, and I still want to see what happens in everyone's lives. 25

Couldn't put it down.5 star

I loved this book. When I thought she couldn't outdo herself she puts another one out. On to the next one. 55


My fave out of the BDB series5 star

I absolutely loved the storyline in this book. It was funny, sad and romantic. It was real even with all the vampire stuff going. The character development on Butch was great. My fave book out of the entire series. 55

Butch and Marissa not doing it for me...1 star

If I read another sentence where V asks a question and ends it with the word "true", I will put a dagger through the book. This fourth installment took me the longest to read and was the least interesting story of the tremendous series. Marissa is too passive and subservient. Butch is just okay. It's not because he's not a vampire that I don't like it, but their love story just didn't wow me. 15

Not up to standards2 star

I enjoyed the first three books a lot, and have read all of them several times. However I really disliked this one. I don't think it was at all engaging and the misunderstanding between the main lovers was just annoying. This book killed the brotherhood for me. 25
