Review: "Lover Mine" by J.R. Ward
Xhex has long steeled herself against the attraction to John Matthew. Until fate intervenes and she discovers that love, like destiny, is inevitable.
My Thoughts: I love this series! Lover Mine finally gives more background on Xhex, a character we have been seeing throughout most of the series. I honestly didn't like her much in past books but she really surprised me. We learn about her past and why she is the way she is and I liked that she actually was a little vulnerable in this book as opposed to being a full time bad ass. Lover Mine is a cool book in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series because there is so much going on it. Not only is there the John and Xhex story but there is more about the Blay and Quinn situation, Tohr and some of his background and Payne comes to stay at the mansion. Tohr is my favorite brother and I loved getting to see how he got started in the brotherhood and how him and Darius became friends. It was actually nice to see Darius again since he only made a brief appearance in the first book. It definitely showcased the potential of the next couple books in the series. If you haven't started this series, you should! 4 stars.
