J.R. Ward, Lover at Last, book review

Wow this book was a long time coming, and it didn’t disappoint. We’ve seen the relationship between Blay and Qhuinn develop over the past few books. From pretrans to now it’s been a bumpy road for them both. I really wondered how she was going to handle the relationship between Blay and Qhuinn, and to say the least she held nothing back. In my opinion the sex, the relationship, it was as it should be just like the romances between the other brothers and their mates.

In this book we learn alot more about Assail and his love interest Sola, and of course a little more about Xcor and Layla. I have to tell you I really hate the Band of Bastards, not that we are supposed to like them. Personally Wrath is my favorite brother and the thought of Layla and Xcor getting together in any way shape or form in the future makes me ill. Of course only the author will tell us how/if that relationship progresses. Alot of this book focuses on the pregnancy with pieces of the glymera thrown in throughout it. I was surprised that quite a bit of Trez and iAm were in this book, obviously setting up something big for the Shadows next book. Lets face it this book has set up several plots for future books; seeing as all of the brothers have had their books and HEA’s.

My only real disappointment is that the end of the book felt rushed. The HEA was over in what seemed like a blink of an eye. There’s alot of loose ends and so very much to look forward to for the next book which will focus on the King – and I do a little happy dance every time I think of it, more Wrath!
