Lover Awakened

#1 New York Times bestselling author J.R. Ward’s wildly erotic and ferociously inventive series continues as the most fearsome member of the Black Dagger Brotherhood discovers just how tempting the night can be…

A former blood slave, Zsadist still bears the scars from a past filled with suffering and humiliation. Renowned for his unquenchable fury and sinister deeds, he is a savage feared by humans and vampires alike. Anger is his only companion, and terror is his only passion—until he rescues a beautiful female from the evil Lessening Society.

Bella is instantly entranced by the Brother’s seething power.  Except even as their desire for each other begins to overtake them, Zsadist’s thirst for vengeance against her abductor drives him to the brink of madness.  Now Bella must help her lover not only overcome the wounds of his tortured past, but find a future with her...

Best series true?5 star

Z and Bella are my favorite book, next to Rhage and Mary of course. If you start this series you WILL NOT be able to put it down. You will get lost in the characters and their stories. AWESOME writing, HOT characters, Great love! Wins all the way round. Do yourself a favor and keep reading! 55


MY WARRIOR!!!!!5 star

Zsadist is by far my favorite book character. He was emotionally scared yet he loved her from the first time he saw her. The Warden captured the story beautifully. This is a book I will always run back to. 55


The best book in the series!!!5 star

Of all the books written thus far, this was my favorite! J. R. Ward does a wonderful job setting the stage for a love story that shows love really does conquer all! She does a great job developing Zsadist's character by going into his backstory as a blood slave and then shows how Bella begins to tear down the protective walls around his heart. I LOVED this book!!!!! 55


Not a fan2 star

This book was too dark for me. Zsadist's past was explained in too much detail. I wish the plot focused on the two main characters more. 25
