Title: Lover Unbound
Author: J.R. Ward
Series: Black Dagger Brotherhood #5
Vishous possesses a destructive curse and the ability to see the future. He doesn’t want love or emotions, just the thrill of battle and defeating Lessers. When the Scribe Virgin comes calling for him to fulfill his destiny his world changes. Not only does he have a new destiny but he has found the one woman for him, Jane.
V’s story is filled with violence, sex, emotional heartache and wity banter. I enjoyed this book mostly. V is a character that I find interesting but don’t love. He has had a terrible past and that has affected his outlook on life and sex. I don’t hate him but he is definitely not a favorite. I really liked Jane. She was smart, sassy, and wasn’t afraid to stand up to the brothers. I don’t love how things end with her but I do look forward to seeing her in future books.
My main issue with this book was mostly the ending. To me, this felt like a forced happily ever after. I know there aren’t a lot of options for human mates but the result felt off and not something I could really imagine in this series. I wish it had been different but that is just my opinion.
