In Caldwell, New York, war rages between vampires and their slayers. There exists a secret band of brothers-six vampire warriors, defenders of their race. Now the cold heart of a cunning predator will be warmed against its will...
Ruthless and brilliant, Vishous, son of the Bloodletter, possesses a destructive curse and a frightening ability to see the future. As a pretrans growing up in his father's war camp he was tormented and abused. As a member of the Brotherhood, he has no interest in love or emotion, only the battle with the Lessening Society. But when a mortal injury puts him in the care of human surgeon, Dr. Jane Whitcomb compels him to reveal his inner pain and taste true pleasure for the first time-until a destiny he didn't choose takes him into a future that cannot include her...
I find it quite funny how the Black Dagger Brotherhood books are going for me. I find myself in a pattern. I go from liking the first couple books to disliking the next few. It's really strange actually and I thought I'd like LOVER UNBOUND too.
Going into LOVER UNBOUND, I really loved the prologue or chapter 1, I don't remember at this point really, but it was the part where Jane finds out she is destined to be with a man named Vishous. And I completely swoon over that part, because it's like how beautiful is that? The more I read the more I fall in love with Jane's side of the story, her being a doctor and I totally go Grey's Anatomy all over myself. LOL
And I imagine all the doctors hooking up. Oh, and I fell in love with Manny, the head doctor with a temper that was so hot and sexy at the same time! I fell in love with him just from his introduction and forgot all about Vishous, so I think that screwed it all up for me, maybe.
Anyway soon after, I really started loosing interest in the storyline between the main couple and it really became such a bore to me that it was a repeat to how I felt about the previous book, Lover Revealed. It was really sad because I was hoping to really like this book. A lot of the times I was going, "ARRGHHHH, when is this book gonna end?" It was very long too. I doubt I'd be saying anything about the length of the book if I liked it though. Haha!
Good news is I adore all the little side stories behinds what's going on between the main couple. I enjoy the stuff with Blay, Quinn and John of course which made the book more bearable. The next book, ummmm... I have no idea when I'll read that one. I've heard horror stories about Phurry's book so I will not be reading it soon. I'll have to wait a bit for his.
