Lover Unleashed [Review]

(I actually give it 3 1/2)

#9 in Black Dagger Brotherhood series
489 Pages
Published 29 March 2011

Payne, twin sister of Vishous, is cut from the same dark, warrior cloth as her brother: A fighter by nature, and a maverick when it comes to the traditional role of Chosen females, there is no place for her on the Far Side… and no role for her on the front lines of the war, either.

When she suffers a paralyzing injury, human surgeon Dr. Manuel Manello is called in to treat her as only he can- and he soon gets sucked into her dangerous, secret world. Although he never before believed in things that go bump in the night- like vampires- he finds himself more than willing to be seduced by the powerful female who marks both his body and his soul.

As the two find so much more than an erotic connection, the human and vampire worlds collide … just as a centuries old score catches up with Payne and puts both her love and her life in deadly jeopardy.

My Thoughts:
The book itself wasn't awful or anything, it was just terribly slow and the main storyline of Payne almost seemed like it was on the back burner. There was an equal amount of Vishous thrown in there and a little Quinn and Blay too. Plus the police/detectives and Band of Bastards... Too many words, not enough actual story for me. I've heard that the next book (#10) is going to be about Tohrment and there will be a novella on Quinn and Blay.
