Lover Mine by: J. R. Ward

I have been absolutely infatuated with J.R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood series since I read the very first book (Dark Lover). Ms. Ward has done an amazing job with each and every one of the novels in this series.

Lover Mine is the eighth book in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series and it is the story of John Matthew. John Matthew is a VERY interesting character in all of these books but he is exceptionally so in Lover Mine.

John Matthew has fallen in love with Xhex who has been taken by the current fore lesser, Lash. AKA the son of the Omega. The brotherhood is doing everything in their power to find her but they really don't have much to go on in the beginning. Lash has lots of tricks up his sleeves and is by far much stronger than any "ordinary" lesser.

I don't like to give many spoilers in my reviews, but I will tell you that the end of this book is spectacular. All through the novel it has you thinking that there will be a sad ending once and for all, but...it turns out to be anything but a sad ending! I never saw it coming but I guess I should have considering there hasn't been a sad ending in the novels thus far. Ms. Ward always finds a way to make things work out for everyone.

*This is most definitely an ADULT novel.
