    Description

    The hottest collection of studs in romance” (New York Times best-selling author Angela Knight) returns as J. R. Ward brings together two of the most beloved people in the Black Dagger Brotherhood world - at last...

    Qhuinn, son of no one, is used to being on his own. Disavowed from his bloodline, shunned by the aristocracy, he has found an identity as a brutal fighter in the war against the Lessening Society. But his life is not complete. Even as the prospect of having a family of his own seems within reach, he is empty on the inside, his heart given to another...

    Blay, after years of unrequited love, has moved on from his feelings for Qhuinn. And it’s about time: It seems Qhuinn has found his perfect match in a Chosen female, and they are going to have a young. It’s hard for Blay to see the new couple together, but building your life around a pipe dream is just a heartbreak waiting to happen. And Qhuinn needs to come to terms with some dark things before he can move forward...

    Fate seems to have taken these vampire soldiers in different directions, but as the battle over the race’s throne intensifies, and new players on the scene in Caldwell create mortal danger for the Brotherhood, Qhuinn learns the true meaning of courage, and two hearts meant to be together finally become one.

    AHHHH........ EPIC - JUST EPIC

    All you BDB fans out there will appreciate that I stopped the book I was listening to, got up at the crack of dawn and desperately downloaded this VERY anticipated book. To say words like good, great, awesome just doesn't do justice to the multi-layered stories JRW produces in these books and this one in particular seemed to be filled with so much more - more sub plots and sub sub plots - yes this is a riveting listen - so be warned - once you start listening it'll just hook you right in.

    This was mainly Qhuinn and Blay's story which was soooo touching, tender, heartbreaking, tense, sad, frustrating (your mind screams "just tell him"), misunderstandings, oh I could go on and on but.... it's also full on with the M/M erotic hot love scenes so be warned coz if you can't appreciate that this is who and what they are, two people in love, and don't like listening to it then maybe just skip this one and wait for book 12.

    This was also the start of new love stories, continued threats to the BDB Kingdom and Wrath in particular, evil deeds done by the Lessers, conspiracies, deadly partnerships, new characters etc etc etc that the book never get dull because JRW just brings more and more to the party - and long may that continue.

    Worth a credit? It's 22.22 hrs of paranormal perfection on a mind blowing scale and so, daaa - of course I'm gonna say YES.

    LOVER AT LAST!

    I had been anxiously awaiting the arrive of this book for years! The story of love, betrayal, friendship and passion between Blaylock and Quinn has always been one of my favorites! I was not disappointed! This story was wonderful sometimes I was laughing, holding my breath, crossing my fingers or crying!! I don't want to give anything away but I will mention that the book does not entirely surround Quinn and Blay, other characters are shown in more depth and new ones introduced. The beginnings of their stories are great and I can't wait to see where they go. Hopefully Scar and Layla will be next I'm looking forward to how their relationship will be able to progress.

    One warning for those that haven't kept up with the entire series, their are A LOT of characters in this series and if you haven't read/listened to all of the books you may get a bit lost at times. JR Ward has to introduce us to new characters and keep us learning about ones we know little of. It can be a little overwhelming.
    Also, please do NOT listen if you have problems with homosexuality! For those that do not have a problem with homosexuality, please listen and give your love and support to the beautiful relationship of Quinn and Blaylock!!!!

    When it was good, it was very, very good...

    What made the experience of listening to Lover at Last the most enjoyable?

    The characters! Ward's BDB universe is filled with lovable (and loathable) characters of every description, and this book features a full caste of familiar faces and new creations. Blay and Qhuinn's journey is, of course, the primary focus of this story, but we also get further insights into Xscore, Layla and Assail, not to mention the shaddow brothers Tres and Iam. At times the constant switching back and forth between characters and storylines gave me literary whiplash--and to be honest, I felt like Assail (whom I hav so far found to be a completely unsympathetic character) got too much air time. But as always, Ward managed to draw me in with her vivid descriptions, frequently hilarious dialogue and the ever-shifting political and interpersonal currents that bring this world to life.

    What other book might you compare Lover at Last to and why?

    LAL resembles most closely the last few books in the series because the plot weaves several storylines together and jumps back and forth between them. Also, I was getting some serious Suzanne Brockmann vibes at points--If you like her Jules and Robin storyline you'll probably enjoy this book. The circumstances of the characters are very different, but their emotional struggles are similar.

    What does Jim Frangione bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    As always, I appreciated his ability to bring the characters to life, to give them personality, while both staying true to the authors' descriptions and avoiding overdramatization. There were some noticeable recording glitches in this book--some areas where the tracks didn't blend seamlessly, and some places where the text seemed to contain errors. I blame that on the editors though, not the narrator.

    Any additional comments?

    If you’ve been rooting for Qhuinn and Blay for years, you won’t be disappointed. If you’re already a little in love with Xscore (or at least, feel some sympathy for him), you will see him begin to make some interesting character shifts. Nothing spectacular, of course, but there is definitely some development there. If you like Tres and Iam, you’ll be further entertained by them and get to know them better. And as for Assail—the jury is still out there. He gets a pretty significant sub-plot, but I have to say I didn’t find those parts of the book as compelling as the rest.

    Bottom line: if you’re a fan of the series, keep reading! You’ll have a good time. If not, I wouldn’t recommend starting with this one. There is a lot of back story you need to be familiar with in order to fully relate to these characters, and since in my opinion the characters are what make the book, I’d recommend beginning the series from the beginning for maximum enjoyment.

    A love story that transcends all boundaries, true?

    I am speechless after reading this book! I've waited so long for Quinn and Blay's story and this one did not disappoint! I could go on and on but I can't say anymore then all the other positive reviewers. This was such a beautiful love story that just transcends all boundaries...it was perfection on paper. I'm so relieved that JR Ward took a chance on the subject matter and gave the fans what they wanted for so long.

    This is why she is the master and I am happy to be the follower.

    This book is amazing and so worth the time, money, credits,etc.

    No real surprises here

    Any additional comments?

    I was not surprised by anything in this book other than where Assail's (?) storyline seemed to be going.

    One of the thing about the BDB books is the world they live in and their struggles with the Lessening Society and I felt like this book didn't have a whole lot of that in it. Honestly I just don't think it was stronger than the other books but I did enjoy it.

    If you're a fan of the series though, you want to read this unless the Quinn / Blay story is not your thing. If you haven't read the series? Start from the beginning and give it a shot but warning, don't listen to it without earphones especially if you are around children or are at work.

    I loved it. It was worth the wait.

    You know the feeling of awe you get when you watch a circus jugular toss oh I don’t know 12 knives around at the same time and never miss a beat. Okay how about when they throw 11 straight up in the air catch one then toss that one up and catch the other 11. A move that makes you draw in a little gasp on top of the breath you did not know you were already holding .
    That is what reading Lover at Last felt like, every chapter every character was pulling and compelling, making me gasp, hold my breath, laugh, cry you name it, I did it throughout this book. Blay and Quinn were the main focus of the book, but unlike most writers who may have dimmer peripheral characters, Ward wasted no imagination on the characters surrounding Quinn and Blay and like a true master jugular she did not drop one character, not one ! .
    I became just as anxious to find out each and every character not just Quinn and Blay, but equally happy that she took such care in developing their frustrating journey. God the book was beyond awesome. There has to be at least are 70 chapters to this story and I can find something I loved in each chapter. I do not want to rob anyone of the joy ride they will get from listening to this audio book starting with the first five minutes of the story. I will divulge however that I was hysterical with laughter at the description of Havers being roughed up and getting his glasses broken and twisted by Quinn….., priceless !

    I am seriously satisfied with the story of Quinn and Blay and looking forward to reading the next books in the series. BDB ROCKS !

    Not my favorite in the series...

    Listened for Fun (Audible)
    Overall Rating: 2.75
    Story Rating: 2.50
    Character Rating: 3.00

    Audio Rating: 4.00 (not part of the overall rating)

    Overall Thoughts:

    I listened in Audio so I am marking times not pages.

    Here are my 5 main thoughts (this book has been reviewed enough that I don't feel the need to say what other people have said already):

    1: Everything between Quinn/Blay (their relationship)could have been cleared up at 7hrs and 4min. Everything that happened after that until the 21hrs 3min mark was all unnecessary drama.
    2: No matter how much I love this world, I still get annoyed at the gangsta speak coming out of grown men's mouths! Their mates, for the most part, talk like grown ups so I am kind of perplexed why they don't.
    3: Are these books even PNR anymore? I would almost move them into the UF category but I am afraid she would drag out stories even more. In the last 3 (maybe 4) books, the side characters have had more page time than the main couple (relatively speaking).
    4: Quinn needs to apologize to Saxton! I am super pissed about this.
    5: Blay needed to get out of his own head 3/4 of the book. I mean relationship aside, you didn't know your best friend hadn't had sex in a year. That is on you not him. Everything about their relationship was just miscommunication and manufactured drama.

    All of this aside, I am ready for The King. I am hoping for a series reboot of some sort. Something that will make me want to stick with it!

    PS: I did like the epilogue and that made me want to root for them as a couple. I think they both need counseling though.

    Audio Thoughts:

    Narrated by: Jim Frangione /Length: 22 hrs and 22 mins


    Jim is freaking amazing! I really do enjoy his narration. Found out with this book that he even sounds good at 3x speed. Now that is saying something!!!

    Man O Man O Man O Man O Man O Man O Man O Man !!!!

    Look... It's Like this... U either Love or Hate BDB! I personal Love some... Hate some... so I don't get them all. This one is m/m romance. I love m/m romance, so guess what... I loved this one.. plus this one was finally the story of Quinn and Blay which I never thought would actually happen b/c it was m/m and I never thought J.R. would do this book, so I was kinda taken aback when it came out. I can't believe I am just now getting around to listening to it.

    This book goes be on the realm of just good... Not a 5... but Man O Man.. it was pretty dang close. It so needed way more smexing for me... J.R. seriously lacked in the smex department like the rest of the BDB books but I am guessing that is because of the m/m romance, and m/m romance is not J.R. first cup of tea. Plus usually J.R. smex scenes are usually a bit more graphic and these were well a too tame... so I was just enough satisfy, but I needed more, so no 5, only a 4.. but other than that.. I enjoyed.

    I might pick up Xcor's book b/c if he really does take over the BDB, OMG that is gonna be one heck of a book.. I think he actually knows where the lair is now.. b/c he can track Layla because he drank her blood...so it is all getting all kinds of interesting now... Man O Man O Man...

    This is a credit, buy and a sale all in one... Narration was great too!

    So disappointed...

    I have read or listened to the entire series, up through this book, and this may be the last. I wasn't turned off by the M/M love story, but I actually started skipping chapters after chapter 8...finally, I skipped ahead to @ chapter 85 and Blay and Quinn were STILL lamenting lost opportunities? Are you serious? After the original Brothers, this series has become increasingly boring. I don't even really like the heroes anymore. Too bad. Think I'll stick with the first 5 books.

    "Lover at Last" my last "Lover"

    I have been a huge fan of the BDB since the first time I read "Dark Lover" and all the wonderful stories that followed. I've adored J. R. Ward's writing style, sense of humor, and the relationships between the couples, and the narration by Jim Frangione. But I wish with all my heart I had stopped with the eighth book, "Lover Mine" and never reached this latest story.

    While I knew who the two members of the couple would be before reading this, and therefore have only myself to blame, I had hoped any sex would be treated discretely. But the scenes between Blay and Qhuin are every bit as explicit as between any other couple in previous books. This is not why I buy paranormal romance books; I'm simply not into male-on-male sex. Not that the heterosexual sex in the half of the book I read were why I read these stories either. Several encounters were mere quickies with anonomous females and one was a group scene as four of the Band of Bastards fed and had sex with a paid vampire female--yick. Now how do I scrub all these images from my brain?

    J. R. Ward has the right to write the story she wants and I know many of her fans will follow her. But this is my last new BDB and I plan to return it to get my credit back. I'll miss what might have been if Ward had continued down a path I could follow, but our paths diverge here.

    Endlich...

    Viele Jahre haben Fans von Blay und Quinn auf dieses Buch gewartet.
    Und es hat sich gelohnt! Finden sie zusammen? Ist Layla schwanger?
    Für Fans von Vampir-Fantasy ist das genau das Richtige!
    Wer allerdings nichts mit M/M Romance anfangen kann, sollte es sich überlegen,
    da es in diesem Buch vorallem um die Beziehung zwischen zwei Männern geht.
    Wie alle der Bücher der Black Dagger Reihe, ist auch dieses wieder voller Spannung und Action, Gefühlen und ....(Ja, genau!)
    Dieses Mal kommen nicht mehr so viele "neue" Charaktere dazu, man kann sich aber freuen auf Aktion mit Xcor, der eine ganz bestimmte Auserwählte nicht aus seinem Kopf bekommt. iAm und Trez ziehen um und auch Trez hat's voll erwischt.Was zeigt,langsam steigt die Spannung ganz schön, den schon jetzt ist bekannt im nächsten Jahr kommt Teil 12: THE KING!

    Alle Daumen hoch!

    Ich liebe die BlackDagger-Reihe, und die Story von Qhuinn und Blay ist eine der schönsten. Nach all der Zeit und dem Mitfiebern hat sich auch der Leser das HappyEnd verdient. Und Jim Frangione liest es ganz wunderbar, ohne alberne Effekthascherei wie verstellte Stimmen, dafür mit umso mehr Feingefühl für die lauten ebenso wie die leisen Töne. Absolut empfehlenswert!

    Schön, aber ich hatte mir ein bisschen mehr erwartet

    Ich habe mich ewig auf dieses Buch gefreut und es war auch gut, allerdings hatte ich mir von Qhuinns und Blays Geschichte etwas mehr erwartet. Ich finde, sie hätte mehr hergegeben.

    Aber zwei super tolle Charaktere!

    Außerdem finde ich es super, dass die Autorin sich nicht scheut über ein homosexuelles Paar zu schreiben, vor allem weil die beiden so gut zueinander passen! Meiner Meinung nach haben die beiden von allen Paaren in der Reihe die meiste Chemie.
