Lover Awakened by J.R. Ward
My rating: 5 of 5 stars.
Zsadist is so hot. Scars and all.
I generally don’t like books about damaged bad boys, and there are so many of them out there. I like the guys to be the strong alpha male that can be there for his woman. However, I really enjoyed this book, Zsadist was so loveable. He is certainly able to protect Bella, he is a true fighter and can literally tear lessers to pieces.
Also, for a large part of the book, he considers sexual acts dirty due to the sexual abuse he suffered as a blood slave. Though he truly loves Bella so much, you can see it in all the ways he acts from the very beginning of the book, when her is working non-stop to try to find her. To the way he won’t let anyone touch her or see her body after he gets her back to the house and how he bathes her with a towel over her privates.
He is so sweet at times and the sex between them was so hot because of his background. Also his relationship with his twin brother Phury is awesome in this book. It is almost tragic in how beautiful it is. I feel for Phury and can’t wait for his story.
I can’t imagine any of the books getting better than this one, but I am really looking forward to John’s, Tohr’s, Phury’s, Butch’s, actually all of them. 😉
