    Another fantastic story line for the Brotherhood, J. R. Ward always satisfies my expectations and I doubt I will ever tire of these hunky vampires!! This story line made me think a lot about J.R. Ward's Fallen Angel series, especially when Butch can give some information about his encounter with the Demon! I loved that I could cross reference various aspects of the story, it's the same as the Legacy series, I totally feel like I am in the world but from different times and view points.

    SPOILERS AHEAD, BE WARNED! Oh my God. This book set up so many future storylines. Let's start from the biggest mystery - the coffins. Coffins are meant for the Brothers that were deemed damned or they did something really bad. In them are bones, and nothing else. Sahvage was supposed/believed to be in one of them but that was not it. Sahvage was resurrected by his cousin Rhavyn, who got some "witchy" abilities. Rhavyn was also believed to be gone, but she came back as the new female character name SPOILERS AHEAD, BE WARNED! Oh my God. This book set up so many future storylines. Let's start from the biggest mystery - the coffins. Coffins are meant for the Brothers that were deemed damned or they did something really bad. In them are bones, and nothing else. Sahvage was supposed/believed to be in one of them but that was not it. Sahvage was resurrected by his cousin Rhavyn, who got some "witchy" abilities. Rhavyn was also believed to be gone, but she came back as the new female character named Elyn. In the last scene, it is heavily hinted that she is going to end up being Lassiter's heroine. OMG... Throughout the book, Devine is wreaking havoc and I loved it. She is constantly noticing how she is alone, and I think that with the inclusion of Lassiter's heroine, because everything needs to be in a balance, Devine is going to find her match. That match is, probably, Lash. Can you imagine the chaos those two are going to cause? Lover Unveiled heavily featured Balthazar and Nate. I thought that Nate is going to be with Rhavyn/Elyn until the last scene of the book. Balz played a big role with The Book and Devina, and in the last part of the book, he meets his heroine Erika Saunders. She is a CPD detective and a potentially really interesting character. Speaking of Mae, she was okay. The problem I had with her is that she was not that well-developed character. We do not know anything about her, and what we do know is not that interesting. Every part of this book that did not feature the main couple was far more interesting than their love story. I have a feeling that this is a recurring case with the characters that we do not know anything about beforehand. I miss times when the characters were introduced way before they got a book. Qhuinn? Blay? John Matthew? Xhex? Rehvenge? Payne? Manny? No'One revealing that she is Xhex's mother and is still alive is one of the best moments in my reading adventure. Layla was in the books from the Lover Eternal. There are many potential heroines with the Chosen, Directrix Amalya & Rhym. Just saying... But also, I am not reading these series because of the romance part, I am reading these series because of the worldbuilding. I think that J. R. Ward is writing books with the same priority in her mind. The next one is probably Balz & Erika, but I could see her going with Phury and naming it The Primale. AFTER THE BLURB RELEASE: The heroine is a female named Mae and we have definitely not met her before... Why lie? BEFORE RELEASE: Sahvage? ... with a female that we have previously met? Amalya, Directrix of the Chosen? Phoenia, the Chosen? Ghisele, the Chosen? Rhym, a vampire working at the Safe Place? Romina, a vampire that almost got mated to Peyton?

    This is a tough book to rate because, yes, I hated the heroine of the story as much as most reviewers. However, it is very clear that she had a psychotic break right before the story began, and all of her actions are being directed by the broken psyche of a delusional person. As soon as the hero figured out what she was hiding he should have gotten her to a psychiatric hospital. Not, you know, fucked her. But, you know, not my monkey not my circus. Judging the book apart from her, I really loved This is a tough book to rate because, yes, I hated the heroine of the story as much as most reviewers.

As soon as the hero figured out what she was hiding he should have gotten her to a psychiatric hospital. Not, you know, fucked her. But, you know, not my monkey not my circus. Judging the book apart from her, I really loved it. There is significant world-building that will direct future books in all of the connected series. We also get glimpses into the mind of my favorite character, Lassiter. How could I not love a guy who saves dying people in the desert by bringing them a Big Mac and has the fashion sense of a blind Brony Hair Metal Band? They can't see you, Good Boy. Who's a good boy? You are! There is, as always, the set-up for a couple of the other characters to get their books and I really want to see where things go with Elyn. We only get a fraction of her story and she will obviously be a major player in the future. As for favorite characters that make it into this book with more than a few lines: Rhage Murhder Butch V And the Rehv gets a part. One of the funniest parts of the story is where the bitchy main girl calls him out on his outfit: "I was so over tonight even before you waltzed in looking like Liberace and Hannibal Lecter had a love child." Good one, psycho! No, that doesn't mean I'll let you out of the straight jacket. Now, lick that prozac lollipop I gave you like a good girl. I also found it interesting that it wasn't mentioned that his mohawk is purple. I really hope he didn't change it to boring brown because of peer pressure or something. Just say 'no' Rehv!!! There are a lot of stories going on at the same time and it took me a bit to get my head back in the game, but it was fun watching them all come together.... which you saw coming a mile away. I'm really looking forward to whatever comes next.

    1/5: I’ve never given a BDB book a one star rating. Not even, The Shadows, Blood Truth, the joke The Savior, or the magnanimous failure The Sinner. JRW outdid herself on Lover Unveiled. This book proves JRW has no respect for her readers anymore. She’s in it for the money. My money as it were. I’m rationalizing continuing to spend my money based on, Vishous is worth it, but there will come a time that not even V will pull me back to shelling out my cash. I was once a staunch advocate for the irrev 1/5: I’ve never given a BDB book a one star rating. Not even, The Shadows, Blood Truth, the joke The Savior, or the magnanimous failure The Sinner. JRW outdid herself on Lover Unveiled. This book proves JRW has no respect for her readers anymore. She’s in it for the money. My money as it were. I’m rationalizing continuing to spend my money based on, Vishous is worth it, but there will come a time that not even V will pull me back to shelling out my cash. I was once a staunch advocate for the irreverent BDB series but now through a long ass string of bullshit books, I have become a harsh critic. Sorry not sorry. That’s what happens when a once badass author loses her grip on her beloved series and turns it into a cash cow. So here we go. Put a helmet on. Simps and feminism... give me a damn break. This is ParaNormal ROMANCE! Ya know Alpha Heroes - vamp, angels, shifters, etc for this sub genre.... GTF out of here with the political nonsense. You built your empire on the backs of alpha male vampires that don’t give a flying f*** about human bullshit. Now all of a sudden BDB needs to be woke? Should have seen this coming when JRW had Vishous apologize to Xhex for smoking at a dead woman’s house. V doesn’t apologize for anything until he’s given a lobotomy like every single character in this series — is this because of JRW or the ghostwriters 🤔 The strongest parts of the book are with the OG Brothers - shocker right? This series used to be about them. ** The BLACK DAGGER BROTHERHOOD ** Unfortunately, now, they are reduced to back of the line after thoughts and replaced with thin and disposable characters that have zero involvement once they hook up with their mate. Please stop with info-dump refreshers for new readers who can’t be bothered to start at book 1 which is Dark Lover. OG BDB readers know who is mated to who. What a doggen is. Who Fritz is. We know what everything is! These words could be used for writing better characters. •SPOILERS AHEAD• There are so many problems with this book. *I know JRW doesn’t know what the BDB timeline is, she thinks the series started in 2008, nope it’s 2006. Read the Insider’s Guide. Pay attention to the seasons changing. Let me help everyone out, right now the timeline is 2011. The reason this is a major bitch out session for me is the constant pop culture references that are from 2013 - 2020. Car models, cell phones, K-cups, Jake Paul (FYI he was 14 in 2011), Frozen - this movie released 2013. How is Stranger Things even on tv! Look I know JRW is all into the show but come on! * Also stop with the, annnnnnnnd; hellllloooooo; okkkkkkkkk, etc. we had this talk before, retire the phrase “and what do you know” * Readers are given characters we’ve never heard of since JRW pinned her star on Gallery Books and started pumping standalones out beginning with The Savior. The Nate situation. No one cares about him. I don’t care what the readers on the FB livestreams say, Nate is a beta at best but more like an omega. Yes he should be in one of those impreg omega verse books. Oh and the Nate/ Elyn chapters read like the Lesser chapters of early books. They are boring as hell, but there’s probably something important in there. This isn’t the case with that storyline. It’s to give Nate page time so he can have a book someday. Hard AF Pass. * Why does this book even matter to the BDB world? It doesn’t - it could have been a novella about Sahvage and Mae. But no, it was written as a not so slick way of setting Lassiter up with his *mate* This is what happens when you turn a series into a bunch of standalones and kick your OG characters to the curb. Oh BTW if you need a refresher, Butch is not stocky and shorter than the rest. He’s literally an inch taller than V (who is 6’6”)- check both Lover Revealed and the Insider’s Guide. So- Sahvage and Mae together are a snooze-fest. Why do all these new relationships read like something out of a desperate YA book. “No I’m going to miss you. No it’s me. No me.” WTH. This is supposed to be para-f’ing- normal romance. This series is supposed to be about big ass alpha males that know what they want and will go to ANY length to get it. And why can’t Sahvage and dumbass Mae be together? Why?? Because weak stakes: he’s still all up in himself about his cousin’s death - spoiler, she’s not, because no one dies in this series except Wellsie. And Mae can’t turn in her V-CARD bc she’s not married? Again YA level BS. Mae is like all the other females in the book, minus, Ehlena and Payne. Yeah Mae. She ranks right up there with Jane level dislike for me. Mae has zero self preservation much like Jo from The Sinner. And Mae’s need for the damn Book is weak. And dumb. She’s also the I’m a feminist hear me roar chick, also like Jo. Mae is like Jo 2.0. The I can do it on my own, bullheaded, naive heroine. Does she listen to like the one guy who knows about the damn Book? A freaking warlock? is that what we’ve settled on for Sahvage? No she doesn’t. Sahvage on his own is kinda cool. The fighter part was only a vehicle for the meet cute. His flashbacks were readable. I will say he and his hand had a great and explicit stroke off scene. Oh and hey! He’s immortal because of the book... but I also bet Rehv is too because his mom had the book and no one knows how old he is. Plus his whole lament about having to watch Ehlena die someday. He’s way older than her. I’m calling it right now. AND wtf is this simp bullshit. I’m supposed to believe that Sahvage is a simp? AGAIN why are we using this terminology? 2011. Erika the police detective? She’s only here to be Balls (yes that’s how I spell his name) true love, whatever. Another human for a vampire. She can be the Butch 2.0 only not as cool or funny. The readers could’ve figured out on our own the missing heart homicides, which only lasted until the murder at the triplex. Did Ward really need to include another unlikeable female character? No, she didn’t, there’s Mae, which is more than enough in this book. And don’t forget Jane! She had to make an appearance too and flex her domineering self. Telling the readers she is a compassionate doctor doesn’t mean it’s true. I enter into evidence books 5-16 and Dearest Ivie for good measure. And for the love of donuts!! Stop with the Mrs. Mary *insert vomit noises here* Devina. She’s back to her bloody and violent self. Thank goodness. Props to Devina and the Tallah thing that was straight up the true demon. Lassiter’s obsession with Vishous... I mean really, at this point Lassiter sounds jilted ex-girlfriend. All he does is think about Vishous, talk about Vishous, or talk to Vishous, but in a bitchy condescending way. He goes out of his way to antagonize V then wonders why V wants to beat the crap out of him. Fun fact: I don’t like Lassiter. He was cool until he wasn’t which was around the time of The Beast. Rehv: where the hell did he go after the Brothers were looking at the coffins? Why is he back to being the Reverend again? I thought he was the freaking King of the Symphaths? I thought he went legit for Ehlena? Anyone remember he burned down Zero Sum and faked his death? I’ll tell ya why he was in this book: JRW is tired of being asked, “Where is Rehv?” This was her, there I wrote him into a book, submission. WHY WHY WHY is JRW making our Brothers apologize for being who they are at their core?! Just in this book Sahvage apologizes to Mae for wanting to protect her... because feminism? Rehv apologizes for not revealing what he knew about the book — why would he! He’s a damn king and badass gangster he doesn’t owe Mae anything. I think JRW should stop writing heroines, it’s not a skill she possesses. They are either bitches, looking at you Jane, Beth, Jo, Mary, Xhex,and Mae; helpless wallflower virgins - Marissa, Layla, Cormia; or called whores because only the guys can bang anything that walks. She should just retcon all the matings and make all the guys gay at this point. I think anyone reading this review can deduce it was NOT a favorite book of mine. I hate that I feel this way but BDB has become a letdown for me. Five-stars to V, even though he called Mae, ma’am over the phone.

    2.75ish stars I'm really stuck on how to rate this one. I'm straddling between a 3 stars and 1 star cause that's how I felt while reading this. I know that sounds crazy but this felt all over the place for me and I can't put my finger on it. Some parts I enjoyed and other parts were really hard to stay engaged and frustrated me. And honestly I get the feeling if it wasn't for that very last scene at the end of book that got me excited for a certain character's story arc, I would have given th 2.75ish stars I'm really stuck on how to rate this one. I'm straddling between a 3 stars and 1 star cause that's how I felt while reading this. I know that sounds crazy but this felt all over the place for me and I can't put my finger on it. Some parts I enjoyed and other parts were really hard to stay engaged and frustrated me. And honestly I get the feeling if it wasn't for that very last scene at the end of book that got me excited for a certain character's story arc, I would have given this a 1 star. So hence my very mixed feelings. 😬 What I enjoyed: -Nate. What a cute pie. Such a wholesome adorable cinnamon role. I loved seeing Nate and his family unit with Muhrder and Sarah at the farmhouse. It was a little weird seeing him call Murhder "dad" though. lol I would have liked for that arc to happen more gradually but still very sweet. Nate reminded me so much of the trainee pretrans era with Blay, Qhuinn and JM. His sweetness and flustered reactions remind me so much of Blay. While I'm heartbroken for him and his torch for Rahvyn that will most likely go nowhere(?) I'm looking forward to seeing where this character will go and see him grow more. -Devina. Yes I hate this nasty bitch. I HATE HER. But lord she makes such a great villain. She gave me the excitement I needed badly in this book. Devina's type of nasty is just what this series needed. Like Omega who? For BDB fans you finally get to see what's in her arsenal and what she's capable of in here if you haven't read the Fallen Angel series. A lot don't like her type of creepy and gruesome but as someone who loved to hate her in FA, I love it. A good villain makes things suspenseful and she does that tenfold. You never know what she's going to pull next and that's what makes her so terrifying and a wild card. The Omega was boring in comparison so yeah..bring it on. The fact that all her scenes with every character is so charged and she sparks with everyone is so amazing. Yes a villain who has chemistry with everyone. 😂 I hate this psycho demon but lord she's good. -Rehvenge. I mean it's Rehv need I say more? Loved seeing him and it was also really nice to see Ehlena getting dialogue and not being a mute after 456789 books. It’s been ages. I would have liked more than 1 page worth of a scene with them cause they’ve been sorely missed. ❤️ -Rahvyne. I'm very intrigued and super excited with who she is gonna be paired up with (if Ward stays true to her word). FINALLY something new. (view spoiler)[She's exactly who I pictured for Lassiter. Eeek! (hide spoiler)] . Ward please don't fuck it up. -Sahvage. I liked him and his tattoos. But if I'm being quite honest he felt a little hazy/underdeveloped in some areas. I wanted a clearer picture of his face for one. All I know is is he has dark blue eyes and a heavy brow. I also would have liked his MMA fighting to actually be shown and not used as just a plot device in the beginning for him to meet the heroine. I was expecting a vampire version of Wolverine. Or at least get one cage fight were he goes nuts. But I liked his sweetness and I liked how he and his cousin introduced dark magic into this series. What I didn't enjoy: -The plot. The whole "need to find an evil creepy book of spells to resurrect my dead brother who is on ice in my bathtub" just didn't work for me. I understand Ward wanted to show the complete desperate straits her heroine was in to save her brother and not thinking straight but it just wasn't my cuppa. I didn't like the motive behind it and it lost agency for me. Mae took a lot of stupid, reckless, selfish actions for too long and it drove me nuts. -Mae. I'm just really extremely tired of the "no nonsense" plain Janes. I don't do well with grumpy heroines and this series has overplayed that trope. Can we move on from this? Why does everyone now need to be so fucking cynical, world weary, depressing, bitter and jaded in this series? Mae didn't make me feel anything outside of frustration for the most part and sheer annoyance in 1 scene in particular that involves a gun. I understood her desperation and fear of being alone and I will give her credit for apologizing whenever she knew she was in the wrong. Just didn't love that it happened so frequently. I also found it strange that the heroine is always saying she "works" from home but we are never given an explanation as to what her job is? What work? Details like that were missing. I'm just really tired of the redundancy and how every female in these books now are written exactly the same with zero flavor or their own personalities. It's become predictable even how they react to things. All the ladies are clone copies now and have become interchangeable. Their dialogue, their attitude, how they look, ect. Let's play a game shall we? Who is being described below: And she had a practical vibe to everything about her, from her flat shoes to the tight ponytail at the base of her neck, from her lack of makeup to her level hard eyes. And talk about professional clothes. Mae? Jo? Sola? Sarah? Anne the Firefighter? (j/k) It's actually Erika, the human detective who yup you guessed it Balthazar is immediately enthralled with at first sight and you can just guess what that means right? See where I'm going here? Cause she's "different" and wears no makeup. Cause big girls who hang with the big boys don't need no makeup according to Ward. Erika sounds exactly like Mae right down to the ever present ponytail. Every single female whether human or vampire are the same now. And I'm so tired of it. Also the toxic-feminist-defensive-I don't-need-to be-saved-I-can-shoot-a gun-all-men-are-sexist-pigs attitude is BEYOND obnoxious. You can be a strong female but also not be a cold bitch or defensive and glaring over everything. Those 2 things are not mutually exclusive and I kind of want to yell that into Ward's ear at this point. Erika the cop is even described as a "cold bitch" by her male peers and she carries it like a cape around her. Like..ugh. Not every female needs to be a "hardass" just so they can be paired up with these guys. I don't understand this copy, paste, repeat formula. Can I get a curvy gorgeous heroine? A heroine who likes makeup? A Chosen? A shy heroine? A goofy sunshine heroine? Please give me something new cause these ladies ain't it for me. I'm just so bored. -The Romance. Where was it? Cause I sure as hell didn't see it in here. Same with the sex. Mae is a virgin, why couldn't we see these 2 actually having sex and enjoying each other in real time? Not a fucking 1 page sex scene near the end where he finally pokes her (we do get one other scene before that but no penetration is involved so I'm not counting it). Come on Ward! You used to be so amazing at the steam. These are Brothers, they are insatiable as hell. Where is the steam? This no longer feels like a Paranormal Romance series but more like Urban-Fantasy Paranormal with a sprinkle of romance thrown in. The romance is starting to feel like a complete after thought. I miss the slow burn, I miss the flirting and sexual tension that lasted longer than a paragraph. The work it took and the hot sex it leads to. -Brother's POV's. I get the BDB universe is expanding but the "someone from the crowd said" shtick whenever we get a scene with all the Brothers feels lazy and not fun. Only 3 Brothers got dialogue & action in this entire book and you can guess which 3. Rhage, Butch and Vishous. It's no surprise but it's really tiring. Why are Rhage, Butch and V always everywhere and anywhere and talking for the whole group?? The cave scene with all the Brothers and the coffin and only those 3 are given dialogue so yes it's weird. Sorry but I'm sick of the V and Butch show. I mean Lassiter brooding alone in the woods over what's happening with Devina and clearly disturbed by the whole thing and yet all he can seem to focus on is what Vishous will think of him and his decisions and mentally dragging V. Why?! I don't care about Lassiter's feelings on V, talk about the fucking war. Vishous is inserted into every situation even when it's not necessary. Just stop. So overall, ok. Not bad but not a favorite of mine. This dragged even though the pacing felt the same so I'm just gonna chalk it up to the plot not being for me. Also, comparing this overall with The Sinner, this didn't feel as big of a disappointment which is also why I couldn't rate it lower. Ward promised "old school" BDB and this didn't really feel old school for me, except for the title. Since dark magic has entered the chat I'm curious to see how this next phase in this series rolls out. I'm no longer invested in the romance aspect because it's not giving me what is promised so to speak. The "old school" BDB books I remember were sexy slow burn with exciting couples front and center that you wanted to root for and felt like you actually knew. All these recent pairings feel like 2 strangers just randomly slapped together in a rush with no effort to show for it. There is no longer any romantic "build up" like their used to be and that makes me really sad.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I don’t typically write book reviews, but I felt like I needed to for this book. On the one hand I generally overall liked some parts of it, but there were so many inconsistencies and continuity errors, as well as timeline errors, it made it really hard to enjoy.

Does Ward think her readers are so unintelligent that we don’t remember plot lines from 2-3 books ago? This is a SERIE I don’t typically write book reviews, but I felt like I needed to for this book. On the one hand I generally overall liked some parts of it, but there were so many inconsistencies and continuity errors, as well as timeline errors, it made it really hard to enjoy.

Does Ward think her readers are so unintelligent that we don’t remember plot lines from 2-3 books ago? This is a SERIES. SPOILERS - At one point, Balthazar talks about how he should’ve had the proper bullets in his gun but he didn’t take reports of the shadow men downtown seriously. In The Thief, V was bitten by one. In The Savior, JM was bitten by a vampire who had been bitten by one. Also in The Savior the brothers and bastards were at Throe’s house party and saw and fought these shadows. Now in this book, none of that ever happened? In The Thief, Phury and V realized that the book was missing from the sanctuary. They knew that it was a magic and dangerous book, but when Rehv goes to Wrath to say that someone is looking for this book, Wrath has absolutely no clue that such a book has ever existed? Butch faced off with Devina in The Sinner, yet in Lover Unveiled Balthazar has no clue what she looks like. You can’t tell me that Butch didn’t come back to the brotherhood and explain that he faced off with her and that she was dangerous and that they had a new enemy and what she looked like. Ward is writing too many books. She’s throwing down her thoughts with no consideration as to whether they make sense or are consistent. One chapter was completely out of order. There’s way too much going on in this book. You read a chapter about a particular character/characters and when it ends, you have to read five other plot point chapters before you get back to it. The Brothers don’t appear until chapter 12 (in a brotherhood book) and even then, it’s only Wrath. I used to think that Layla was the dumbest and worst heroine in the series, but here comes Mae to prove me wrong. And believe me, it’s hard to top how much I loathe Layla. Mae has got to be the most unlikable female I have ever read. No matter how many bad things she faces because of Devina and this book, all she can say is “I still need the book.” She was so unlikable that I spent the entire book hoping Devina would kill her soon. I did love Balthazar but his character will most likely suffer with his human female, the boring and plain Erika. Devina was fun even though I’m supposed to hate her. I enjoyed Murhder and Sarah but can’t see how Nate can have a book any time soon unless it’s a YA book about the kids. I preferred Shuli (Peyton version 2.0). I’m reading for big, strong, kick ass vampires, not a boy with a crush. Actually Nate is JM version 2.0. The sex was almost non existent and boring. Mae was another plain, boring female in her fleece. Don’t get me started on being a 50 year old virgin. If you’re charging $15 for an ebook (and $28) for a hardcover, you’ve got to do better than this.

    I’m always excited about a new J.R. Ward book, but I was especially intrigued about this one because of Sahvage. We don’t really know too much about this hero, which was one of the reasons why I was looking forward to it. Sahvage turned out to be more than I expected him to be. There were sides of him that I didn’t really expect but found quite attractive about him. It’s always hard to introduce a new Brother when the original ones are so loved by readers, but I think Ward did a good job of I’m always excited about a new J.R.

It’s always hard to introduce a new Brother when the original ones are so loved by readers, but I think Ward did a good job of it. She brought something new to the series and did it in a familiar way, but didn’t just rely on the love of the series to make it happen. Sometimes I think people can be too harsh on these newer characters because they are so loyal to the original brothers. But Ward shows that her world can keep evolving and growing. LOVER UNVEILED plays a pretty important part in the overall storyline. There are a lot of different points of views in this book and I’ve come to really appreciate them because they make the story feel rich. Not to mention, I think that’s what keeps Ward invested in this series because she can play around with the different characters rather than just writing from the same point of view again and again. All in all, I really enjoyed this book as I do with all of Ward’s beautifully written stories and I can’t wait to see what will come in the future in the Brotherhood world.

    Meet Sahvage, one of the damned warriors of the Black Dagger Brotherhood who was supposed to be dead and buried over a century ago. But, he’s been “living” outside his coffin and shows up in Caldwell to participate in an underground bareknuckle fight, organized by the Reverend. At the same time, Mae a blooded female is trying to find the Reverend as she’s in search of The Book that she needs for unexplained reasons and shows up at the bout. She distracts Sahvage at a critical moment, setting the Meet Sahvage, one of the damned warriors of the Black Dagger Brotherhood who was supposed to be dead and buried over a century ago. But, he’s been “living” outside his coffin and shows up in Caldwell to participate in an underground bareknuckle fight, organized by the Reverend. At the same time, Mae a blooded female is trying to find the Reverend as she’s in search of The Book that she needs for unexplained reasons and shows up at the bout. She distracts Sahvage at a critical moment, setting the course for their joined journey to come. As is typical with the world of the Brotherhood, there are other subplots involving Balthazar, Murhder & Sarah’s son Nate and Lassiter, which all collide around the formidable demon, Devina. This woman wreaks a new kind of havoc and disaster that makes the Lessers experience look like child’s play. I’m used to the series laying the groundwork for new stories in earlier books so I was confused in the beginning, trying to figure out who Sahvage was and his backstory (don’t bother researching because this is his first appearance). We learn that through his memory flashbacks and it involves his cousin Rhavyn who is equally formidable. His life is truly tragic and Mae becomes his unwanted salvation. While I liked who I thought Mae was going to be when she first appeared, her singleminded obsession about The Book felt selfish as the story progressed and she became the weaker element of the story and romance. It’s my understanding that Devina was introduced in the Fallen Angels series, which I haven’t read but it didn’t matter because you get her power and devious nature in this story. I liked how the subplots came together, making for exciting and explosive moments, even if the romance fell short of my expectations. The narrator, Jim Frangione, makes listening to the series my only option as he has provided distinctions for the Brotherhood world that just enhance the experience. And I love his storytelling. I’m adjusting to the change in how new characters are now introduced but enjoyed this one despite my initial confusion. After all, it’s always great returning to Caldwell. 3.5 stars Posted on Blue Mood Café (Thanks to Simon & Schuster Audio for my complimentary copy. All opinions are my own.)

I found her annoying, overly headstrong, and not supportive enough of him. But that’s my personal opinion. Overall, this story is addicting and powerful with more development into the complex world the Brotherhood lives in.

However, as usual their story isn’t the only storyline in this book, eventually they all come together and while I did enjoy their journey, I didn’t particularly like Mae. She could get quite annoyingly headstrong. Sahvage....I loved him, he’s a great addition to the Brotherhood 🖤 We get to know Balthazar a bit better, I’m looking forward to getting to know more of him. We meet some new characters that are key to this storyline and possibly future storylines (fingers crossed!). Let’s not forget the new evil who gives the Omega and Lessening Society a run for their money, Devina. I have to say I hated her in JRW’s Fallen Angels series however she fits right in with Caldwell’s dark side. Lover Unveiled is filled with a bit of mystery, secrets, and revelations. Needless to say the BDB is my all time favorite series. This was a great addition to the series and I cannot wait for more!!!

It's absolutely all over the place. You have 12 storylines that you have to follow at the same time to make sense of it, and if that wasn't enough, you have flashbacks into the past, too. All other books center on one character, and their interaction with their shellan/hellren. The wider picture containing their interactions with others, and the brotherhood's ongoing fight with evil. The Omega was no more, and now Devina the demon is the new darkness in town. I get that. We could have concentrated on Mae and Savhage, and how their story fit and affected the continuous fight with Devina. Instead we have to endure being pulled apart in 12 different directions, following characters we don't care about and won't ever see again, just so that Mrs. Ward can have her grand finale where all those storylines converge. Well, I'm sorry to break it to you, but it wasn't worth the agony of having to go through the entire book to get there, it was completely anticlimactic, and it wasn't even necessary to the story. You could strip half of those useless chapters and end up with a better, less frustrating read. To top it off, you find out, at the very end that after going through all of it, it was for naught as far as the Demon went. I can't say more for spoilers reasons. This is the perfect example of where an author's ego takes precedence on the story. I can't believe I had to pay almost $15 for this. Very disappointed fan, here.

One thing Ward does wonderfully is explore the characters and really flesh them out, even when it's painful to read. It isn't in a gratuitously gory way, which is why she is such a great writer. The heroine of this story, Mae, seemed to be a tragic loss to all the other stuff happening in his book. I felt that for was wonderfully developed as Sahvage was, she seemed lacking in that deep background. Their story has a sort of tragic feel from the beginning which is par for the course in the BDB world. There is a LOT happening in Lover Unveiled. Multiple storylines sort of converge here, so it isn't JUST the story of Sahvage and Mae. Honestly, if you aren't fairly caught up in the world, you will find this book a tad overwhelming and confusing. However, if you are reading these as fast as Ms. Ward can release them (like me), Lover Unveiled will answer some lingering questions while providing you with the expected love story of another man of the brotherhood.     POV: 3rd   Tears: no   Trope: vampire   Triggers: (view spoiler)[These books are filled with characters with physical, sexual, and emotional abuse in their past and anyone with triggers should read the series with caution (hide spoiler)]   Series/Standalone: series (you need to read in order)   Cliffhanger: (view spoiler)[not for the main couple, but there are threads left open (hide spoiler)]   HEA: (view spoiler)[HFN (hide spoiler)] If you ever wanted a paranormal romance version of the In Death series, with all the horror, death, and tragedy ...then you will probably like Lover Unveiled!

    This book was yet another severe disappointment from Ward . There are too many issues to list, I see a couple of reviews have already hit upon them. I will no longer buy another one of her new books. I’ll stick to the oldies when she actually cared about what she was writing.

I got to choose to spend all of my reading time enjoying all the amazing scenes where my beloved characters walked in and did captivating or just plain entertaining things. And then I could totally ignore whatever I disliked or despised. So in the end, I ended up with all 99% of great feelings about the book as a whole. Sahvage was another unique hero, an immortal, in the BDB World. The world packed with other one-of-a-kind heroes: Rehvenge, King of the Sympaths; Wrath, the Pure-Blooded Vampire King; Vishous, a DemiGod ~Son of the Goddess (the Creator of the Vampire Race); and others. Sahvage's back story was gripping and mind blowing. His story was so incredible original ~ fresh~ and would make you fall hard for him. The down side of an amazing hero was that Mae, the heroine, ended up looking so uninteresting. But we didn't even need her to shine, trust me. There were other captivating characters all over this story who would entertain and capture your hearts, like Lassiter, who exhibited why he could take over the Scribe Virgin's role. The final scene between him and Vishous was a brilliant 'must-read-lead' that would entice us to look forward to the next book(s) in the series. The 1% of what I despised about this book centered on the Devil Devina. 👹 Since I skipped ~ skimmed her pages ~ (200 pages?), so, nothing more about her from me. Interested in experiencing her evilness? Please pick up this book and enjoy. 😝 Sharing one of my favorite scenes, the final scene of the book: Ethereal. Beautiful— . . . See me, he thought at her. I want you to see me. Her stare continued on past him. And then promptly doubled back. As their eyes met, a shimmer awareness, of heat. . . of purpose. . . went through Lassiter's entire body. "Well," V said, "all I can tell you is that I never saw anything that was meant for me, true?" Lassiter looked back at the brother. "Huh, what?" "My visions. They've only ever been about the destinies of others, never my own." The brother shrugged and started to walk away. "So good luck with that, angel. Or should I say, good luck with her." With a knowing look, the brother wandered off. Leaving Lassiter with the strangest sense that the Gift of Light wasn't an object at all. . . and that he and this silver-haired female were just getting started with each other.

She went back to her old track of "reincarnation, reborn"! (I suspected that though in the case of "lost" girl). Sure, no one knew about Sahvage. He was never even mentioned in any of the books. But C'mon lady! You were introducing him in this one. At least try something new. Please go back and see what miracle you've created for Zsadist, John, Wrath, Rehvange, Phury, Tohr, Quinn, Blay...It seems, as if, book after book, we are left with more questions and few answers. Like every time, she didn't forget to give us a glimpse of the future stories in the end. Lassiter and Balz! But I, for sure, is seriously doubting her potential. I don't remember the last book that I rated "five" where BDB is concerned now. That's a serious red alert for me. For the first time, I pre-ordered this one. I expected something great, out of this world and simply unbelievable. She has done many gender swaps as well. Want me to count? Jose de la Cruz = Erika, Devina - Omega, Lassiter - Scribe Virgin (ok fine. Let's not go there. We have enough on our plates already) One serious glitch is...what's up with such soaring prices of even the Kindle edition? Aren't they suppose to be cheaper than the paperback one? Ward, please come back with something better next time. I still haven't given up hope.
