The Penguin Groupamazon. A somewhat disappointing end for this reader, not the series to a series that I once loved. This review contains a lot of spoilers. We all have a right to our opinions and this review contains mine. If you are interested in J. You will not find that here. I also apologize in advance for the length of this review and the occasional sarcastic comment. After reading it I could not classify it as such as very little time bladk devoted to the main characters, Blay and Qhuinn.
Blay and Qhuinn were finally getting their story. No more back and forth. Oh, they did eventually get their HEA but am I happy with how it happened? No, brothrhood Blay and Qhuinn. I will come back to them.
It is their book after all, right? Yeah well, not really. It was more about characters that I personally had no use ##11 and their own particular stories. In this book, however, Blay and Qhuinn were not center. Everyone and their mother so to speak were. I always adored these two guys. Brotehrhood were two of my favorite non-brother characters.
Unfortunately the author gave Trez too much time in this one. Trez, who has always been all about sex, was constantly fucking or thinking about fucking.
Sure, his behavior was as a result of other issues hanging over his head but I lost interest in his sex life after reading again and again and again about him being inside yet another psychotic, drugged out woman. I have no real opinion of him but he was also given too much time here. Dear God every time I thought that maybe we were going back to Qhuinn and Blay what do you know? More Assail and Sola and their back and forth and the sexual tension between them.
Just give him his Chosen already. When an author takes a total bastard character who just happens to be the leader of the Band of Bastards and makes him out to be a killing machine early on only to have him later fall into mush as a result of Layla? I actually felt a little bit of sympathy for the killer but half of the stuff going on with him and the Band of Bastards was unnecessary and to be honest, boring. Are there actually readers that like this character? That would be too blaack for one thing.
Another, I am not willing to give her anymore time in my review. Where were the brothers???? Oh sure they were in the book in passing and even in a couple of important parts but I wanted more.
I read these books for the brothers not for characters who have no direct connection with them. I wanted more of him. Now to Blay and Qhuinn, the characters the book was supposedly written about.
Lover at Last (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #11) by J.R. Ward (3 star ratings)
We watched as he was shot down again and again because he was convinced that his feelings were not reciprocated.
We watched Qhuinn as he had sex with dozens of females and males alike right in front of Blay. Qhuinn knew llver hurt Blay but yet he kept doing it anyway.
Blay finally moved on with Brohherhood. The readers hated where that was going but it was good to see Blay happy even if it was not with the man he loved.
Qhuinn eventually grew up and realized that what. At this point it was too late and he was forced to watch Blay have a life with his cousin of all people. In Lover at Last, they finally hook up a few times. These times, daggger course, were scattered amongst hundreds of other pages in the book where other stories were going on. I have to give the author credit for one thing.
Blay and Qhuinn do have sex on-page. I was surprised at this because of the so-called flak that she got over bringing two gay characters together sexually. Was it great sex? Nah, not really but I do give her credit for not having it occur off-page as I expected. Had she done so considering the amount of hetero sex going on my comments in regards to it would not be flattering in any blaxk and this review would read loer differently.
One comment that I actually found funny and I have no doubt it was not meant to be… to set it up, Blay had just given Qhuinn a blowjob and Qhuinn was eager to reciprocate.
And I need something to suck on. It should also be noted that Qhuinn had an orgasm that lasted literally twenty minutes. The back and forth between Blay and Qhuinn went on entirely too long. Blay and Saxton broke up before Blay had sex with Qhuinn the first time but yet he refused to tell Qhuinn this until literally the very end of adgger book. The amount of time the two men actually spend together is minimal which was frustrating as the book was supposedly about brotyerhood.
Lover at Last (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #11) by J.R. Ward
I wanted more interaction between the two men. When brotherhhood finally does happen it happens during a very emotional moment for Qhuinn and it is rushed. Yes, this was very nice and I admit to getting a little emotional there for a second as Qhuinn poured his heart out and Blay finally admitted that he was and had always been in love with Qhuinn. This was given like 2 pages? All of that leading up to this moment……. To say I was angry would be an understatement.
The ending was beautiful. I will admit that freely. But what about the previous two weeks?
Lover At Last
Other issues with the book: There was a gang bang and lots of graphic sex by others I mentioned Trez. I read this book for Blay and Qhuinn not to read the equivalent of a poorly written erotica novel about other males and females having sex all over the place. This almost prevented me from reading it. I have yet to understand why this delay occurred. Not to mention the spoilers that are posted by everyone in America who is reading the book two days before you.
I live in the U. My blog partner does not. While I was reading this book I had to avoid Goodreads and other social networking sites like the plague due to eager fans putting spoilers in their updates. I got the book the day it was released. What about those who had to wait an extra two days?
There were two misspelled words. Only two out of thousands but my eagle eye caught them. Probably, but I expected more from a J. What I loved and yes, there are a few things I loved about this book: Watching Qhuinn as he came to terms with not only his feelings for Blay but with his past and his finally coming to terms with the fact that he is, in fact, a gay man.
It was a long time coming but when it came it was sweet.
His character got stronger and he made Qhuinn work for everything. I may be a minority in this one but I absolutely love the cover. With the exception of no tattoos being shown, this is how I pictured Qhuinn in my head.
The same can be said about Tohr and his brothrrhood as well. That pretty much sums it up. I will forever be grateful for the series and Blay and Qhuinn as I never would have discovered my love for the LGBT genre without them. But there comes a time when an author can brothehood a series too far and that is the case with the Black Dagger Brotherhood series.
I am disheartened as I had high hopes for Blay and Qhuinn. This is the book lsst fans have eagerly awaited. Ward could destroy that is beyond me. I am disheartened and I am extremely disappointed. For those who will continue to read the series after this book… good for you. I hope you continue to enjoy the BDB world. As of this very moment I am officially out. I get adding other characters and back stories so a series can go in different directions.
