Yeah Some days you were all I could think of Bella and ZOMG OMG OMG Can I please give this book than 5 stars I just want to say that Lover Awakened is one of my top 5 favorite books of all times I can't get enough It's one of those books you read straight through and then when you finish it you wish you could delete it from your head so you can enjoy discovering it all over again I loved Z so much And as much as I loved Z I loved Bella too I don't know how JR Ward does it but she somehow writes these books that bring to life this exciting dark and sexy world filled with heroes that I fall madly in love with When you pick up one of the books in this series it looks like a normal book but when you open and read it it wraps around your heart and lives in your mind long after you finish it This series is just amazing and this book is my favorite of the seriesIf you don't want to be with me fine Just say so But don't hide behind wanting to protect me You think I don't know the sex would be rough with you? Is that why you want it? he asked in a dead voice You think you only deserve to be hurt now after the lesser? She frowned Not at all But if that's the only way I can have you then that's how I'll take you He ran his hand back and forth over his skull trim hoping the friction might get his brain to work I think you're confused He looked down at the floor You have no idea what you're saying right now You arrogant bastard she snapped Z's head shot up Well that was slap in the ass number two Excuse me? Do us both a favor and don't try to think for me okay? Because you're going to get it wrong every damn time Bella and Z He wanted to see her eat After the sex after he came inside of her he wanted to have her eat food he'd brought her and he wanted her to take the stuff from his hand Hell he wanted to go out and kill something for her bring the meat back cook it himself and feed her until she was full Then he wanted to lie beside her with a dagger in his hand protecting her as she slept ZMy God I ached for Z Zsadist was so tortured scarred totally badass and sexy as hell The first time I read this book Z crawled into my heart and he has lived there ever since He was just such an amazing and deep hero Something that really made me mad in this book and the two books before this one was the way everyone treated Z All the Brothers including Z's own twin Phury acted like he was a ruined nonredeemable crazy evil pos Everyone always jumped to bad conclusions about him and no one really cared for him I don't feel Phury really loved him To Phury Z was just a burden It pissed me off so bad the way Phury especially treated him Z was so left out and all alone All the flash backs into Z's past and reading how he felt about himself damn but my heart just bled for him I loved Bella because she was strong brave loyal sassy and she fought for her man She went through six weeks of hell at the hands of the Lesser David but he didn't break her I would have loved her alone just for the way she loved Z She seen his worth and beauty when everyone else treated him like he was a wild animal I mean why? Of all the males you could have why me? I want you She put her hand on his chest It's a natural normal response to the opposite sex isn't it? I'm not normal I know But you're not dirty or contaminated or unworthy Z and Bella Oh God Zsadist I love you His eyes flared so wide his brows nearly hit his hairline What ? I love you Say that again I love you Again please he whispered I need to hear it again I love you Bella and ZTogether Bella and Z had a beautiful and emotional love story I loved the way Bella needed only Z He was her rock her safety and her hero And Bella showed Z that he wasn't dirty or ugly but strong sexy and an male of worth Their love story is why I read romance novels The powerful connections I feel for them The way their story makes me feel when I read it Like they are real The happiness their book brings me is why I enjoy reading so much My God I melted when Z and Bella made love Z discovering the beauty of love making after what he had been through was so moving They are one of my top 5 favorite couples ever Though this is Bella and Z's book there was so much going on in this book Especially with John Tohr and Wellsie I enjoyed all the stuff about John adjusting to his new life finding out his bloodline and bonding with Z But OMFG when view spoilerWellsie died I cried Tohr losing his shit over her death and then disappearing was just so damn heartbreaking OMG hide spoiler

    “I was dead until you found me though I breathed I was sightless though I could see And then you came and I was awakened” BeautifulDon't know what to say about this book Amazing and beautiful and those 5 stars don't do it justiceZ is definitely my favorite BDB Brother 3 He couldn’t stand to have anyone put their hands to himthough he wished he’d let Bella find a piece of his flesh just once With her he might have been able to handle it The storythis will be spoilerish to everyone who hasn't read the first two booksSix weeks has passed since Bella's kidnapping and Zsadist has become and violent He has only one goal kill as many lessers as he can and find out what happened to Bella The Brotherhood is worried about him and they have no clue why he's taken a personal interest to Bella but then it's not like anyone understands him at allWhen a call comes with information that Bella is still alive Z almost goes crazy because he has to wait for nightfall to go to herThe rescue Won't talk about that you have to experience it by yourself The real story begins there Z wants Bella badly but he knows she shouldn't be with him even though she refuses to leave his sideWill he be able to set himself free of his past with Bella's help?Read and see 3 He was terrifying a horror of her species Ruined not broken in the words of his twin But that was what would have made him such a good savior He alone was a match for the lesser who’d taken her Zsadist’s kind of brutality was probably the only thing that could have gotten her out though she knew better than to think that he’d ever try to find her The story Heartbreaking Just totally is Even though we see the HEA Z's past and all he went through But it was so wonderful to watch him heal get past it all with Bella's help Amazing 3The rescue scene was one of the most emotional ones for me and my favorites were when Z was taking care of her 3 view spoilerWhen his eyes changed One of the best scenes ever 3 hide spoiler

    My dear friend Karla and I went on this emotional roller coaster of a ride together It was so much fun and I enjoyed every minute Her uniue way with words and her humor kept me in stitches Thank you sweet Karla for reading this with me and to all our friends for their encouragement along the wayWhewWhat a story There is no way I can do a review and do justice to this book Zsadist's story was everything and that I was told I have fallen hard for another one of JRW's brothers Below are just a few of my thoughtsfeelingsZsadist is without a doubt one of the most tortured heroes I’ve read He broke me My heart shattered His deep feelings of unworth tore me to shreds His self loathing is palpable and the intense anguish he endures each day left me in pain His intense self hatred at times was difficult to read As the author reveals his past in small portions my heart ached And when all was told a nursery rhyme came to mind Humpty Dumptyall shattered to pieces never to be put together again No I promise I didn't relate this warrior with the fat egg only the results of their fall I soon learned the horrifying scar he wears on his face is nothing compared to his inner anguish “Ruined not broken” Heartbreaking words issued as a warning to the heroine Bella to stay clear of this brotherAnd what a heroine Bella is so easy to love and I admired her inner strength and her determination Portions of their story are absolutely sizzling hot and heart wrenching It had me crying laughing cursing holding my breath in fear gasping in awe and at times fighting mad But Oh my what a love story Intense hot emotional tender; unfortunately their love is fraught by Z's demons In addition to Zsadist and Bella’s story this book is slam full to the brim There is a heart breaking scene that had me in tears and I mean crying heartbroken tears I was even mad at the author I also learned how much one can hate a lesser I wanted to pouf him out of their world myself And OMGosh the love I have for Phury who is Zsadist’s twin brother The sacrifices he made is a beautiful thing and there is one particular scene that I nearly cried buckets And what’s up with V and Butch and view spoiler that drink? hide spoiler

    ➽ This is where most people would say something like warning Unpopular opinion time ➽ This is where I say something like this is my opinion I don't give a damn what you think Oh and by the way I don't like you either Just so you know Sooooo This was ridiculous stupid and boring Wait I think I'm forgetting something here Oh yeah it was pretty lame too I think it's high time to get my favourite antediluvian beast out of extinction Good doggyBelieve it or not the main problem with this thing book is NOT that it is PNR Well as 9999% of PNR novels it is indeed silly and OTT and slightly ridiculous But that's to be expected in this silly and OTT and slightly ridiculous genre A note to all you adorable PNR trolls out there this is not a bad thing in itself Unlike this literary masterpiece here some books can actually be silly OTT ridiculous and NOT STUPID They can even be entertaining sometimes I kid you not So the answer to the uestion you didn't ask is yes I am aware that this thing book never pretended to be deep and complex and à la uantum physics Doesn't mean it had to be this crappy thoughNow the main problem with this delightful story? Its Bogus Alpha Asshole MC BAAM™ aka Z aka Zsadist if like me you think his name is somewhat stupid and vaguely laughable please feel free to eyeroll here So the guy is supposed to be this super antisocial twisted sick bastard who rejoices in being a total prick 247 and supposedly loves nothing better than inflicting pain JR Ward you are so damn funny Because Z the Counterfeit Sadist ZtCS™ is nothing but a big pathetic woe is me cry baby with the mushy heart of a 13 year old schoolgirl I swear the guy is an insult to all the Gloriously Fucked up Slightly Unhinged Mentally Unstable Jerks GFUSUMUJ™ currently living in peace and harmony in my High Security Harem Shame on you for creating one of the most ridiculous characters in the history of ridiculous characters JR Ward Luckily enough for you Fleet Admiral DaShrimp and the Murderous Crustacean Troops MCT™ are away on holiday at the moment they are visiting their decapodic cousins in the South Seas so I can't unleash them on you BUT I do have a few fluffy bunnies mercenaries on my payroll Not impressed are you? Well don't let their disgusting cuteness kill you These little guys are devious ruthless fuckers fiends with deliciously homicidal tendencies So if I were you I'd start running now FASTAnd that is all Well it's not really all but I've wasted enough time with this thing as it is Besides the story is your basic standard PNR crap so there isn't much to say about it Well I could tell you that it is silly and OTT and ridiculous and slightly stupid but I think I might have already said that so it's better if I don't repeat myself right? Right» And the moral of this Fantastically Fascinating Non Review FFNR™ is this is it I've had it I am done done done trying to commit PNR induced suicide Yes that's right the divorce is final and the masochist in me has finally decided to give up on this pathetic charming genre Except if Ilona Andrews Pippa DaCosta Glen Cook or Craig Schaefer decide to tackle it that is Unfortunately that seems a bit unlikely But you never know a crustacean can hope Oh and by the way I reserve the right to read books by Veronica Del Rosa too Because the girl wouldn't know how to write harebrained PNR even if she tried The end You're welcome And stuff✉ To the three lovely ladies nutcases who collectively recommended I read this thing it was nice knowing you I'm sorry you have to die such a slow horrible painful death• Book 1 Dark Lover ★★★★★• Book 2 Lover Eternal ★★

    Oh My God I'm not even sure I can convey the complete absurdity of this book Any description I try to make is typically interrupted by my own peals of laughter at the general ridiculousness andor groans of immense pain The hero Zsadist yes he is actually named that is a self proclaimed misogynist Yayz Profoundly psychologically damaged after several years of torture abuse and slavery at the hands of an evil female vampire he spends most of his time moping about feeling angry and hating his gignormous penis for causing all this trouble He likes to beat himself to get off but then he hates himself for getting off Then he falls in love with Bella and moans a lot about his evil sperm how dirty he is and blah blah blah Meanwhile our heroine stands placidly by of course feels compelled to love him despite his faults of course and gradually tames the beast within after several rounds of rather rough sex of course We also get some lovely flashbacks to Zsadist being tortured and abused of course Seriously this reads like the worst of fan fiction AUs brought together The other male leads have names like Vishous Phury and Rhage and this is not supposed to be take as comedy andor irony??? Also the solilouies where Zsadist is hating on his penis are pretty amazing Also the universe ZOMG it is so freaking complicated Vampires Vampire slayers Vampire protectors Vampire drug addicts Seriously there are guide books sold to help readers understand this universe Clearly this is the romance industry's version of Anne Rice and Laurel K Hamilton Clearly it has been very successful as a crossover money maker But really really WOW

    5 THOUSAND BELOVED NALLA STARS I've read this book countless times but this is my first review Zsadist is my 5th favorite book man ever even though his face was harsh his voice was so soft and beautiful like the candle flame A dark musk with an evergreen spice My ZsadistZsadist is a tortured soul the darkest of the Brothers the meanest After spending a hundred years as a blood and sex slave he has nothing left to give anyone and he can barely stay alive for himself He has survived pain mental anguish cringing depths of humiliation and degradation hopelessness helplessness Z is my favorite kind of man He is scary shit and I dig it He is beyond saving and he doesn’t want to be saved He is HILARIOUS Humor is my #1 favorite attribute in any man especially sarcastic humor I laugh at almost everything Z says The other stuff he says just shreds my heart Z had no love to give anyone But the hatred he had he would channel for Bella until the last breath left his lungs Bella is a HEROine She saves Zsadist from himself She saves Zsadist from death She is devoted to him whole heartedly and fights through all of his darkness She is his constant My BellaBella is drawn to Z and she decides that she wants him and when Bella makes a decision it’s final I love her devotion to Z She is so confident and has such courage that she is the perfect match for him He was the killer who made her safe Their love isGah It’s push and pull There isn't another love like theirs He pushes her away so many times but he cannot resist her love because she gives so much of herself to him “I love you”Z sueezed his eyes shut “Don’t be a tragedy Bella” ”Don’t make me go” she whispered He was going to take her with all the strength he had and she was going to be sore when he was through using her Sore and utterly blissed out She couldn’t wait I LOVE the ending to this book It has me up on my feet pumping my fist in the air I love Z to death but Bella makes this book so much better and she contributes her own badass ness to this endingIn conclusionI love Zsadist

    Opening Line Goddamn it Zsadist Don't jump ZSADIST YOU BROKE MY HEARTThis is an amazing book and my favourite in the series LOVER AWAKENED tells the agonizingly painful story of Zsadist a former blood slave and most feared member of the Blackdagger Brotherhood After Zsadist rescues the beautiful aristocrat Bella from the Lessoning Society's torture facility she refuses to leave his side or bed Craving the strength and security she now finds only with him And it's with her growing love and patience that this reluctant hero ultimately `awakens' It's a bumpy ride for our pair and this relationship will leave you in tears both of joy and sadness as we witness Z's transformation from the `cold one' into a male of worth A multilayered novel LA of course has several stories and POV's running simultaneously and the action never stops Full of suspense erotic and ultimately heartbreaking Introduced briefly in the past two books we now get to find out what made Zsadist the way he is A confirmed sociopath who avoids all relationships Z is scarred pierced tattooed violent and illiterate He's the most feared Brother and distrusted by all because of his intimidating and just downright mean nature He enjoys pain yet can't bare any kind of physical contact due to the years of physical and sexual abuse he suffered during his time as a blood slave Zsadist makes for an unlikely romantic hero but JR brilliantly gains your sympathy and you will grow to love this misunderstood and abused character Phury as Zsadist's twin plays a major role here and through a series of flashbacks we learn the details of Z's enslavement and Phury's daring rescue of him It's a striking scene resulting in the loss of his leg and Z's brutal scarring Phury has spent his life consumed with fixing his twin and is riddled with guilt sacrificing time and again and it's starting to take a toll Now exhausted he's playing a deadly game with the `red smoke' and despite his vow of celibacy can't help being attracted to Bella We also get to know Rehvenge the Sympath club owner of Zerosum and John Mathew's story starts to unfold as he begins his training and accepts the love of a family Of course all the Brothers get some attention so we get shots of Wrath Rhage Vishous Butch and their respective `Shellans' Some of my favourite scenes involve the Brothers just going about their daily business little interludes in the kitchen or hanging out playing pool and teasing each other Unfortunately the Lessers continue their torment making things personal now as their leader Mr O attempts to reclaim Bella and a shocking loss occurs within the Brotherhood family that will be felt throughout the rest of this series Z and Bella's love story takes center stage throughout though and is utterly fascinating From the moment of rescue Zsadist won't let anyone else near Bella And despite being frightened of him she wants him To Bella he is perfect and she slowly begins to seduce him Z is subseuently terrified feeling dirty and hating his body's response to her When the two finally kiss howeversigh Ultimately Z's feelings of unworthiness force him to push her away Into the arms of a male of worth those of his twin brother When Bella goes into her 'needing' though which twin will ease her suffering? The celibate one or the one who can't bear to be touched? The climax of this book is simply unput downable With a suicide mission forcing one twin to sacrifice everything for the life of the other and a HEA that brings tears to your eyes as we get a rare glimpse of the future Each book in this series just gets better and better but JR has outdone herself here I would give this s if I could and can't recommend it enough

    “I was dead until you found me though I breathed I was sightless though I could see And then you cameand I was awakened” This is the best of the series Zsadist is a real tortured hero What he has been through shatters my heart And Bella she is a savior of this broken man She has fire in her heart especially when he tries to push her away she resists That's why I love her That's why I love this book so damn much “He knew he was being overbearing as hell but he couldn't help it He was a bonded male With his pregnant female There were few things on the planet aggressive or dangerous And those bastards were called hurricanes and tornadoes” I cried many times while I was reading Z has a soft heart if I stare hard enough He think he was broken by his former master so he doesn't deserve anything “She is beautiful than I have words for And last night I was blessed beyond measure to serve her” JR Ward mastered this book immaculately from the start to the end She slowly built my anticipation for this book in the previous ones My hope was too high before reading this and she didn't make me down even a little Lover Awakened is beyond perfection It's a masterpiece It's a jem It's everyting I could have asked forhttpsgooglhPuahO

    Jesus I hated Zsadist before this book I thought of him as a ruthless killer and he is But there is another side of him that is revealed in this book With Bella Zsadist's tortured soul is exposed You see a much darker side of him that is painful and I feel ashamed to say that I am captivated by him Knowing him that is the last thing he would want Zsadist has no patience for those who show sympathy or pity him And I respect him for thatThis is one of the darker books of the series It's content is brooding and involves a lot of self loathing A lot of Phury's story is told here as well Damn the thing he goes through for his brother I can't even imagine his pain Now I can see why in Lover Enshrined he is such a mess But God bless him for his efforts He is a good male Both of them areAnd Wellsie Poor woman The hurt that Tohr and John must feel I still cannot believe it Also John seems to be growing up already in this book In the last few pages I found myself saying Good for him as he picked up those weapons and practiced with themWard does an amazing job fitting happiness and sorrow and pain all together to create a delicious mix that is consumed by all This series is to die for
