Lover Avenged by J.R. Ward
My rating: 4 of 5 stars.
Rehvenge is so Boss & Lash is a Villain you love to hate!
I am loving this series more with each book I read. All the characters feel more like Family. Even Lash who I really hated at first when he was just a trainee and was mean to John all the time. Now that he is the Omega’s son and an all powerful Lesser villain, he is pretty awesome. You just have to love how good he is at being bad. He is so much smarter than Mr. X, and Mr. O were. Plus he can really do some damage and he isn’t impotent like they were.
This book is mostly about Rehvenge and I was waiting for his story since we have been hearing so much about him in the previous books. I mean he has so many issues, but is such a manly vampire. What is not to like about a huge guy who runs the hottest club in the city, drives a Bentley, has a penthouse, takes care of his Mom, sports a killer Mohawk and Tattoos, and is also a local political leader.
Of course, I knew if he was going to have a love interest in this book, that the evil Sympath Princess blackmailing him into sex that he hates every month would somehow have to be dealt with. I won’t tell if or how that happens, but he falls for a nice nurse from Havers clinic who knows nothing about him being half sympath or owning the club and being a drug kingpin.
Though Ehlena does know Rehv has a problem with dopamine, she thinks it is from the Vampire form of Parkinson’s. She also knows his arm is infected and tries to help him with that, since she is a nice girl.
John and Xhex have more encounters throughout this book. Their storyline is heating up a lot. I can’t wait to find out what happens with them in the next book. John has given up on Tohrment at this point and is so different than he used to be. He is sullen and drunk a lot now. Hopefully that ends soon. It is almost like a soap opera I am caught up in. But soaps were never this good. 😉
