Review: Lover Mine

Wowser!!  The latest installment in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series, LOVER MINE, is a real keeper.  There are so many twists and turns that the reader won't know if they are coming or going.

The main focus of the story is one of my favorite characters John Matthew and his love interest Xhex.  At the end of the last book, Xhex disappeared and it is now revealed that she was kidnapped by Lash.  John Matthew is involved with the search for her but he is  barely hanging onto his sanity and temper,  Xhex is doing a little better then he is and she is the victim.

In between the plot twists and the edge of the seat suspense, there is a lot of character growth and development.  And to make it even more interesting, LOVER MINE has  several distinct storylines and one wonders how some of them relate to the others.  However Ms. Ward does a masterful job of tying up most of them and I hope that the third will be the subject of the next book.

This is a series that it is best to read from the beginning as in all the books characters from previous books do play prominent roles.  And while I do really prefer series where each book stands on its own, I will be rereading this book and series.  So I rate it a 4.5.
