Lover Eternal by J.R. Ward


Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 2

++++ MAJOR MAJOR SPOILERS COMING ++++

Alright ... This book was centered around Rhage. Rhage aka Hollywood ... He stands roughly at 6'7'', built Ford tough with an asymmetrical swing type of haircut ... Blond hair and electric blue eyes. He's nicknamed Hollywood because of his reputation with the ladies, plus the fact that people mistake him for a model and/or actor. Anyway ... Rhage is also the brother with a dragon tattoo on his back, that happens to come to life if he doesn't 'release' in some way. The best way to keep it at bay is to have sex. But when he gets EXTRA pissed, he turns into the dragon and eats everything.

The first book, I thought that feature was pretty damn cool, however, in this book, I think I was mostly put off by how boring the main female was.

In this book, we have Mary Luce ... She has leukemia, works at a suicide hot line and is an assistant at a law firm. She comes in contact with a boy, by the name of John Matthew, who's mute, and is actually a vampire who hasn't yet gone through the change.

Ok no I wont give away everything in the book.

I thought Mary was boring as shit. But at the same time, I feel like Rhage needed a boring, and average looking woman to offset his good looks and way of living.

I really want to say something about the ending. Ok yea I'm gonna say it. No I wont. *sigh* ... The ending, I actually hated but I realize it has to be that 'happily ever after' type of ending so us female readers can feel satisfied. Not this one, but whatever.

Will I get the next book? I don't know. I said I wanted to get book 3 to read about Zsadist but now I kinda don't want to. Although he probably will have the best story out of the whole set of brothers, I just don't want to deal with another boring female who turns a tough Brother into a bitch.

Oh ... John Matthew ... Yea, you know him.

So this Crate and Peril book ...

I'm trying to get into it but it's not happening. I put it in my Currently Reading box and read up to chapter 3 while I was getting a pedicure. Im not really into it at all right now. Nothing about it is sending me signals, its just ... MEH ... I dont know, we'll see what happens in the next few days. I hope my books come in the mail soon, it's taking forever.
