What can I say? I so thoroughly enjoyed the previous four books that I was super hyped about getting my hands on this instalment. Disappointed? Yeah, sorta. The previous books had me hooked from page one. Read them all in record time and started to re-read them straight away. This one was a harder read. The writing was still as good, but the story was a bit urgggghhh. I can't say that I didn't enjoy it, there were some really good parts, some iffy parts and some pretty unbelievable parts - the whole V & the human relationship that he had going on. And we all know that vampire & human does not equal happiness. Remember how hard a time Rhage had when he met Mary? Lots of menacing threats from the Brothers, his fights to keep Mary with him? Gee, not a bit of that opposition when Jane came to visit. How could things have changed SO much?

The things I really did enjoy was the fleshing out of V's history, his shockng discovery of his parentage; John's continuing story and the snippits of his potential and the one really big "thing" that came up at the end of the book - a stray sibling not before mentioned. That alone will bring me back to the sixth part - plus Phury needs me, just as much as I need him.

Read the books in order, don't start at this one and you will be hooked as much as me and the legions of others who totally adore Ms Ward and her fantastic imagination. I look forward to the next book and the next and the next. Ms Ward is a force to be reckoned with now and in the future.

Although other readers of the Black Dagger Brotherhood may disagree - and even feel slightly offended, so I apologise in advance - these novels are really a bit of a guilty pleasure for me. I do love vampire novels, but I come very much from the Anne Rice school, and as a consequence I'm slightly conflicted about JR Ward, and never more so than with this, the fifth novel.

It's not difficult to summarise the plot, because it's effectively the same as all of the other books: vampire meets girl, circumstances are engineered in order for them to spend time together, a bond forms between them which the vampire resists due to his traumatic past, girl breaks down vampire's defences, fate intervenes to separate them, hand of God comes down and saves the day. Oh, and they get married.

It's not the formulaic nature of the story I have an issue with, however; nor is it the slightly clumsy writing. Firstly, I found it hard to care particularly about Vishous, which surprised me as I've always been fond of him - but, as another reviewer pointed out, there was little evidence of his "wicked smart" intelligence in this book. I also felt Jane was somewhat insipid, but the female characters always strike me as being rather weak - with the possible exceptions of Beth and Bella. Perhaps it's understandable that they should be overshadowed by the vampires, as it's clear that where the author's own heart lies (especially with Zsadist).

I didn't feel particularly that JR Ward bottled out of the BDSM element of the book - I didn't expect her to go very far with it, these being primarily romance novels - but what I did find INCREDIBLY frustrating was the intervention, again, of the Scribe Virgin.

I can't tell you how much I was looking forward to this book being published. I have recently re-read the previous books in the series, and literally couldn't wait for this next installment.

And now, although I can't put my finger on the why, I can't really say I liked this book.

It's the story of Vishous, complete with all his weird practices. Maybe he's just not the tortured soul I've come to expect from JR Ward - he seems to be pretty much in control of his (love) life and I felt the female doctor picked out as the love interest was only brought in because it's a tried and tested formula. Although the relationship between V and Butch features quite heavily in the first few pages, it's then almost conveniently brushed aside.

I finished the book within 2 days and although I know there has to be a new slant on becoming immortal, I was disappointed with the ending, or maybe confused as to why JR Ward felt she had to go down that certain track.
I don't know.......maybe I'm just not V's biggest fan. Zsadist and Rhage were my absolute favourites, and maybe there's just no living up to 'em!!
I'd be interested to see if anyone names THIS book as their favourite, but my advice would be 'buy the book' - you'll need it to keep up to date with the newcomers.

Firstly, I admit that J.R Ward's doing well to stretch the series out and each time I've picked up the next book I was sure that it one be the one to let me down. Up to this point I was always thoroughly please to be proven wrong and have loved them all. That is until Lover Unbound. I agree with the previous readers comment in that there just wasn't enough heat in this one and it did leave me a little cold. The relationship wasn't as strong and was furrowing my brows as I put the book down, unsatisfied.

I was however, intrigued by the John Matthew's sub plot and of course Phury....!He is sounding fitter and fitter by the book. And will Thor make a reappearance?

Although it's only a 3 stars rating for this one and my lowest yet, it's still not enough to stop me ordering the next!!
