REVIEW: Lover Unbound by JR Ward

Summary:

The ruthless and brilliant brother Vishous possesses a destructive curse and a frightening ability to see the future. As a member of the Brotherhood, he has no interest in love or emotion, only 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 into a future that does not include her...

Title:  Lover Unbound
Series:  Black Dagger Brotherhood
Book #: 5
Author:  JR Ward
Approximate Book Length:  557 Pages
Recommended Reader Age:  18+
Sexual Content:  Moderate

Thoughts:

Learning more about V's history is rough and enlightening. His chemistry with Jane makes sense and they are pretty hot together. Their ending is kind of sad and I think it leaves some holes for inconsistencies, but it's the best one could hope for under the circumstances.

We also get to see from Phury's POV and it's a little tough for me. I want to be sympathetic towards him, but a part of me also finds him a little pathetic. The path he ends up on has a lot of potential, but whether it gets filled in a good way or a bad way, I can't yet guess.

Bottom Line:

Lover Unbound is a wild ride because V himself is one. It's exciting and promises some changes in the future.

BLOG TOUR: Savaged Dreams by Jennifer Lyon


Thanks to Herding Cats and Burning Soup for hosting this blog tour. I'm sharing my review of Jennifer Lyon's Savaged Dreams today. Happy reading!

*****************************

Summary:

Going away to college gives LIZA GLASNER a chance to escape her painful and dangerous past…or so she thinks. At fourteen years old, she survived an attack by a famous musician. After that, the media, groupies and crazies hounded her with a merciless cruelty that ruined her life. But now she’s thriving—until an internship brings her face to face with the sizzling hot lead singer of a rock band, and she finds herself drawn to the very thing that once destroyed her. Justice is a temptation she can’t resist…and one that could get her killed.

Sexy rock star JUSTICE CADE is determined to take his band, Savaged Illusions, to the top by winning the Court of Rock T.V. show. Tortured by guilt for failing his family, he believes fame is his only path to redemption. But when the fiery college-intern hiding her beauty beneath baggy sweaters and a snarky attitude bursts into his life, Justice is forced to choose between the woman he loves and the stardom he craves. The wrong choice will cost him more than he can bear.

**This is book one in a trilogy and ends on a cliffhanger. However the next two books are being released in July and September so readers won’t be stranded on the cliff for long!

Title:  Savaged Dreams
Series:  Savaged Illusions
Book #: 1
Author:  Jennifer Lyon
Approximate Book Length:  318 Pages
Recommended Reader Age:  18+
Sexual Content:  Moderate

Thoughts:

I fell completely under the thrall of this book. Justice isn't your typical rock star which I appreciated. I was a little afraid when starting this book because I kind of expected the bad boy player type of rockstar. Justice had a lot of heart. His band was pretty great too. Liza is such a strong character. I loved seeing her fight back her demons. I absolutely adored them together. They connection between them just arcs right off the page like lightning. I didn't realize when I read this that it was a book one, so now I'm upset I have to wait for book two (though at least I won't have to wait long)!

Bottom Line:

Savaged Dreams is both riveting and sweet. I was glued to the page and couldn't get enough. The next installment can't come fast enough!
