Lover Awakened (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #3)

Lover Awakened by J.R. Ward

My rating: 5 of 5 stars.

In the shadows of the night in Caldwell, New York, there’s a deadly war raging between vampires and their slayers. And there exists a secret band of brothers like no other – six vampire warriors, defenders of their race. Of these, Zsadist is the most terrifying member of the Black Dagger Brotherhood.


A former blood slave, the vampire Zsadist still bears the scars from a past filled with suffering and humiliation. Renowned for his unquenchable fury and sinister deeds, he is a savage feared by humans and vampires alike. Anger is his only companion, and terror is his only passion—until he rescues a beautiful aristocrat from the evil Lessening Society.


Bella is instantly entranced by the seething power Zsadist possesses. But even as their desire for one another begins to overtake them both, Zsadist’s thirst for vengeance against Bella’s tormentors drives him to the brink of madness. Now, Bella must help her lover overcome the wounds of his tortured past, and find a future with her…

BLURB: Lover Awakened

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. 😉
