"Lover Unbound" by J.R. Ward


SERIES: Black Dagger Brotherhood #5
GENRE: Paranormal Romance
SOURCE: Publisher
LINKS: Goodreads | Book Depository

Ruthless and brilliant, Vishous, a member of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, possesses a destructive curse and the frightening ability to see the future. Tormented and abused while growing up in his father's war camp, he now has no interest in love or emotion, only in 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 towards a future that cannot include her...


The instant chemistry I had with V from the first instalment has become pure love... Like a runaway train! This character is seriously beyond amazing and I don't know what I'm captivated by the most: his dark background, his curse/gift, his complicated and beautiful relationship with Butch, his love for Jane... Sigh, Doc Jane is abso-freaking-lutely perfect for V. In fact, I'd say this couple is the best match in the series so far.

Every instalment of the Black Dagger Brotherhood made me cry at some point, but with this one my vision was completely blurry, especially during the last few chapters... And yes, I might have freaked out a little... But then, a huge thanks to Butch an V for cracking me up so much that sometimes I got distracted and ended having the best of times. And to make the read even more special, on the background we have a glorious John Matthew (who's growing on me at fast speed) and, I don't believe I'm saying this, a OMG Phury... When has he become so interesting? Good thing his book is next, because after certain plot developments my curiosity is killing me!

Full of revelations over revelations, "Lover Unbound" is a magnificent read and V... well, V is undeniably irresistible... So far, this is definitely my favourite book in the series!
