Lover Revealed by J.R. Ward
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Butch and Vishous make a badass team!
This is the story of Butch and Marissa. They were introduced in book 1, and have been appearing ever since. Butch was taken by the lessers and tortured, then the Omega put part of himself in Butch’s stomach. Vishous was able to remove most of it and heal Butch, but there is still something left. Some connection. Butch is awesome, he used to be a cop, but after discovering Vampires, he took to the life. He is now roommates with Vishous in the Pit, he wears all designer clothes, shoes, watches, wallets, and drives an Escalade, and he is willing to get into it with a bunch of Lessers to protect civilian vampires, and won’t give away the brothers even after unbearable torture.
I’m thinking Marissa is pretty much a selfish witch sometimes. I mean she knows how much Butch loves her. She knows he wants to be the one that feeds her, she knows that he doesn’t want her to go to this “other guy” to feed her, so what does she do? Instead of talking to him about it and trying to come up with a mutually agreeable plan, like maybe using V, or possibly another friend, she just dematerializes and goes to Rehvenge to feed.
Also when she know he wants to change she just immediately says. “If I asked you, would you not do it?” When it should be his choice not hers. She has to know in something like that, if she forced a choice on him it would end up in resentment and that would sour the relationship later on. But it isn’t until he explains his entire childhood and reasoning to her that she finally agrees to let him make the choice of what to do with his own body.
And by the way, after Butch’s story about his childhood, all I can say is what the heck is wrong with his siblings. They should have seen that the parents were nuts and stood up for him. So I say he is better of with Vishous and the brothers.
Then Marissa does it again after the Scribe Virgin tells Butch and Vishous about how they were meant to find each other so the light can benefit the dark and how Butch is now the Dhestroyer. She doesn’t care how he can possibly save her species, she just cares that she doesn’t want him to get hurt because she might lose him. She also doesn’t care that this is what he wants to do with his life, now that she is running a shelter and happy with her life. I am really hating her, but I love the book because I love Butch and V so much. They are completely awesome.
The storyline about John is coming along as well too. He is still suffering about what happened to him in that stairwell of the building he was crashing in before Wellsie found him. He even beat up Lash for ragging on him and one of the other guys after training one day. He thinks nobody will understand what he went through, especially Zsadist, since John saw Zsadist and Bella being so loving. I can’t wait until he actually opens up to Zsadist for some advice. You know that is coming since they go on walks every night.
