hello everyone :)
so, how was the labor day week-end? I was quite busy and so I'm a bit behind blogging the books i've read, updating my side-bar, visiting other blogs and leaving comments :) I'll try to catch up tho, promise. The good news is that i've been reading a few books and i have some reviews :) so here we go:
Lover Awakened by J.R. Ward: 4/5
Lots of ppl were anticipating the book, lots of ppl have been cruising the book stores to get their hands on it and lots of ppl have read it over the week-end. I wasn't anticipating the book that much... altho I did love Dark Lover, first of book of the series, Lover Eternal wasn't that good and so I wasn't counting down the days for Lover Awakened release. Of course, it was on my "To buy" list, but I could have waited... only, I needed to buy 6 books in order to reach 50$ and use the gift card I got during August and so I bought it :P
So, Lover Awakened basically picks up where Lover Eternal left off: Bella has been kidnapped and Zsadist is going berseck. In the end, all you need to know is that Bella is rescued and that eventually, she'll mate with Zsadist... Yes, I know, this synopsis is not really good, but it's better than the blurb of the book... and can't say much without spoiling the book too much. Anyway, if you want to discuss the book, I think that Sybil has a thread (or many threads) going on at her blog, so you can go there.
My opinion? I enjoyed this book and liked it better than Lover Eternal, altho I don't think it can beat Dark Lover. Those who loves tortured hero, Zsadist is one... even his name is a give away :P Why did I enjoy this book so much? I didn't care much for the romance in the book, but what I liked was Zsadist evolution and also, the story is moving and there's much more interactions between the characters than in Lover Eternal. You get to know Phury who so far has received very little attention, altho what he turns out to be surprised me a bit. I really like John Matthew, altho his world has been rocked again by a major event. So yeah, the plot is moving, the story is going somewhere and I'm glad. I'm not sure about Butch story yet, but it's getting quite interesting...
