So, I'm late with my blog today, but I just finished reading Lover Avenged. I feel so many things with this book that I'm not sure where to begin.
First, I'm glad Rehv got his happy ending. I love him and Ehlena together. They were beautiful! Truly beautiful. I also enjoyed seeing so much of Wrath and Beth. They may still be my favorite.
The things I wasn't so crazy about. I won't go into too much detail, because I know some of you haven't read the book yet. Don't want to ruin it for you all! The bit between Tohr and John. It felt more like it was there to ramp up the ratings or something. It all left me feeling like John is being put through a lot of crap just to keep things interesting in the book. Which makes me a little sad.
The jumping back and forth, all the different points of view, wasn't so bad. I didn't mind it and it did make the story read faster somehow. Although, I just ended up skipping certain sections because it was just boring so maybe that's why it read faster. LOL
The romance was there, but in such short bursts that it made feel sort of slighted. I wanted to see so much more of Rehv and Ehlena. But, I'm not the author and as we authors know, we have to write it the way our heart tells us to write it. I respect Ward for doing what she feels is right by the story and her characters.
There is one thing that sort of made me ill though. The whole sex in the bathroom at ZeroSum. Some of that whole paying for sex, and doing it in a stall just seemed too Sopranos or something. There were other things that made feel sort of gross, too, but I'll shut up for now. Again, don't want to give away any spoilers!
All said and done, it was a fast read with lots of action, and some seriously sexy alphas to keep us ladies panting.
Buying another in hardback though. Hmm, methinks I'll wait for paperback. Because as Randy on AI says, "it was just okay for me, man"
Now your turn! What'd you all think of it? Yay or Nay? Curious minds wanna know!
