Lover Avenged is a worthy addition to the BDB collection. It's a longer, deeper story than any of the others, with plenty of time dedicated to sexy Rehvenge as well subplots on Wrath, John, and eeevil Lash. I don't want to give any of the plot away - you deserve the pleasure of discovering Rehv's amethyst eyes for yourself. Just know that Rehv is awesome, he has to deal with way too much crap (yeah, I got teary once or twice), but fortunately he doesn't have to deal with it all alone... which means we also get a much-needed hot Brotherhood fix to boot.

Ward has outdone herself with "Lover Avenged." The first six novels in this series revolve around rather simplistic plots: Zsadist's story is simply his own, as is Rhage's, etc. This novel tells the story of Rehvenge BUT there's so much more. If you've been wondering what's going on with Wrath and his queen, question answered! Wanted more about John Matthew? That's there too. Wondering how Doc Jane is? Read on!

Additionally, she manages to present the characters of Xhex and Rehvenge honestly (showing all their flaws), but still in a way that just warmed my heart. You'll be a Rehv fan when you're done, I promise!

I liked Lover Avenged, but there was something about the book that didn't quite work for me. There seemed to be a shift somewhere; it didn't read like a Black Dagger Brotherhood book, IMO. Maybe it's because the book was about Rehvenge and he's not a brother. Also, this is the first time that I became annoyed with the lessers. They are an integral piece to the on-going war, but it was just about the leader finding ways to make money and it was boring to read about. Besides what's going on with Wrath, the storyline did not move forward in this book. The whole war issue with the lessers was at a stand-still and I wished there was some type of progression with it.

With my complaints aside, I loved Rehvenge and Ehlena. I liked how gentle he was with her and there was true emotion when they were together. I thought the revelation of who, and what, Rehvenge was handled beautifully. Ehlena's feelings and reactions were spot on and I admired how she was able to forgive him.

I felt so bad for JM in this book. He got kicked around too much, but I hated how he decided to handle everything. He's never had much guidance, and the one person he looks up to, was not around when he needed it. I am looking forward to his book, which I believe is next. Honestly, I hope it's not as long as this one was. 3.5 stars

I love this series!!!! I never know what's going to happen in J.R. Wards Black Dagger Brotherhood series, except to say that she's never let me down when it comes to a page turner. Well worth the money I spent on this book and one I can read over and over again when I find myself in a reading rut. Just wish I didn't have to wait so long for the next one, then again, Ward makes it worth the wait. A 5 star read.

A little slow to get into at first but it gets better. I liked how sweet the relationship between Ehlena and Revhenge is. Ward did a really good job progressing their relationship with phone calls.

I enjoyed revisiting the relationship between Beth and Wrath. It's nice to know that everything doesn't automatically become rosy just because they are together. And it totally made sense that Wrath was going strong and now losing steam as king.

As usual I have a hard time with reading about the lessers. I always feel those parts of the books were too long. Lash helped a bit but it was still too much about them.

Good read but definitely try to read them in order.

Excellent additon to the series. I wasn't sure I would like this one as I not a big Rehv fan. J.R. Ward created a very interesting story around his life and family. This one has turned out to be one of my favorites in the series.

This is the story of Rehvenge and Ehlena. Rehvenge has a secret he has had to live with will be threatened by those who want to destroy him and his empire he has built in Caldwell and at SumZero.

This book shoots off in different directions, setting up for other books, but at times it is a bit too much. I would have like to have read more about Rehvenge and Ehlena but maybe that will come about in the future.

Major characters in this book are Rehvenge, Ehlena, Lash, John and Tohr. The history behind Rehvenge and the princess is revealed and a bit shocking.

Overall I enjoyed this book and looking forward to the next.
