5 stars: Lover Revealed- Butch’s Story
After every Black Dagger Brotherhood Novel I read, I find myself with a new favorite character. After Dark Lover (Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 1) it was Wrath, after Lover Eternal (Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 2)it was Rhage, and after Lover Awakened (Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 3)it was Zsadist. So I suppose I really shouldn’t have been surprised when upon finishing this novel I decided that Butch is my new favorite character.
This book did not disappoint me in the least. Be warned that if you haven’t read the previous three books in this series, that you will not understand a large portion of the story.
The story focuses on Butch, and his relationship with Marissa. We also learn quite a bit about his past. There were moments were I was a bit teary-eyed so be prepared. I also loved seeing the friendship that Butch has with the rest of the Brothers. And I was glad to see that young John was back in this book, even though he had not completely recovered after earlier events (who can blame him?).
I’m already looking forward to the next addition to the Black Dagger Brotherhood Novels. At the end of this story we get a small sneak peek of Lover Unbound (Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 5). Keep up the good work J.R. Ward, I can’t wait to read more!
