"Lover Eternal" by J.R. Ward


SERIES: Black Dagger Brotherhood #2
GENRE: Paranormal Romance
SOURCE: Publisher
LINKS: Goodreads | Book Depository

Within the brotherhood, Rhage is the best fighter, and the most voracious loverfor inside him burns a ferocious curse. Possessed by this dark side, Rhage fears the times when his inner dragon is unleashed, making him a danger to everyone around him. Mary Luce is unwittingly thrown into the vampire world and reliant on Rhage's protection. With a life-threatening curse of her own, Mary is not looking for love. But when Rhage's intense animal attraction turns into something more emotional, he knows that he must make Mary his alone. And while their enemies close in, Mary fights desperately to gain life eternal with the one she loves...


If the first instalment of the series was great, "Lover Eternal" was amazing! It definitely had a bigger impact on me, especially on an emotional level. Action and drama absorbed me so much that I sighed/cried all the time and I'm pleased to tell that I felt a stronger connection with the characters, including someone in the background...

Rhage already got me with his curse in the previous book. We didn't know everything in detail, but just knowing this handsome brother (so handsome that the Brotherhood nicknamed him Hollywood) had a dragon tattooed on his back that was more than a simple gorgeous ink on skin, was reason enough for me to start wondering about and irreparably dream of him. Too bad for me, Mary was the lucky girl! I must say, Rhage and Mary are a great match. There are lots of hot moments going on between the two of them, but also very sweet ones and believe me, their story has such a unique tenderness that really warms your heart... Both beautiful characters, where one is undoubtedly physically stronger, the other is so mentally. But can the last be able to tame a beast?

I'm totally enthralled by this series (not to mention the Brotherhood), and with a turn out of events like the one in here, the only plausible thing to do is to go grab the next instalment and start living another prodigious adventure!

RATING: 4.5/5
