I couldn't wait to read Rehvenge's story and pretty much tore through it. Another amazing read in The Black Dagger Brotherhood series!

Lover Avenged (Black Dagger Brotherhood #7) by J. R. Ward

As the vampire warriors defend their race against their slayers, one male’s loyalty to the Black Dagger Brotherhood will be tested in this breathtaking novel in J. R. Ward’s #1 New York Times bestselling paranormal romance series.

Caldwell, New York, has long been the battleground for the vampires and their enemies. It’s also where Rehvenge has staked out his turf as a drug lord and owner of a notorious nightclub that caters to the rich and heavily armed. His dangerous reputation is exactly why he’s approached to kill the leader of the Black Dagger Brotherhood—Wrath, the Blind King.

Rehvenge is used to living in the shadows and keeping his distance from the Brotherhood. As a symphath, his identity is a deadly secret—the revelation of which will result in his banishment. But as Rehvenge is pulled into plots both within and outside of the Brotherhood, he turns to the only source of light in his darkening world. Ehlena is a vampire untouched by the corruption that has its hold on him—and the only thing standing between Rehvenge and eternal destruction...

4 out of 5 stars

This story was filled with so much awesomeness. I adored all the twists and turns, drama and action, love and heart. It was totally addicting!

Rehvenge and Ehlena were great characters, these two had a crazy and wild ride. Rev is in the middle of a horrific situation and I felt so bad for him, I understood that pain and felt it. It was beyond horrible and I loved seeing everything unfold, the evolution of his feelings and how his mind worked. Ehlena was fantastic. She was tough and determined, such a hard worker. She held her self with grace and fought for what she believed in. I loved that she didn't take any crap from Rev. I loved the development of her and Rev’s relationship, the back and forth they have as they try to stay away but their attraction keeps pulling them together.

I loved all the different stories happening! I'm totally digging the angel Lassiter, love the storyline that's been set up for John and Xhex, was hooked on everything to do with Wrath, and was even fascinated by the bad guy. It's an extremely detailed story, full of emotion and pain, as well as sexy times and fun. I love those more entertaining moments that are woven in. The Brother’s commentary, it's much needed comedy relief. I always enjoy catching up with the Brothers and their significant others, there is such great camaraderie with all of them.

I loved the overall story, getting into the bad guy's mind, and everything I have to look forward to in the next books. Excellent storytelling!
