Zip Lover Reborn Just a fair warning This book buttfucked me raw without lube spoiler pun intended and destroyed

Zip Lover Reborn Just a fair warning: This book buttfucked me raw without lube (~*spoiler*~ pun intended) and destroyed my heart and sanity. My feelings are all over the place and I need to vent. Cursing, spoilers and inappropriate gifs ahead.TORH/NO'ONESummary: SEXSEXSEXSEXSEXSEXANGSTANGSTANGSTANGSTA year ago when Ward announced Tohr was next, I got so mad. It was too soon for him, it felt rushed, he wasn't ready, she was fucking him up, etc. And sadly, I still stand on that.And on that note, let me clarify something: One thing is to accept someone you love died and to move on with your life and another is finding a new partner. You don't need to fuck/love someone else to move on in a healthy way. I disagree completely with Ward here. Tohr needed to find himself again, move on naturally, accept Wellsie was death AND THEN find someone else. Not do both things at the same time.And honestly, Tohr was a douchebag to her for the most part. He treated No'One with no respect, insulted her and used her. Grieving doesn't give you the right to act like that. And also: TOO MUCH SEX! If you know me, you know that coming from me is huge.The whole seasons thing was a weak plot device to be able to squeeze a whole year worth development into one book, when each book usually covers like two weeks top. We've been getting Qhuay little by little over 5 books now, when that's exactly what Ward should have done with Tohr/Autumn. Reading their developtment in 4-5 different books and then getting their own book would have worked better and more smoothly, IMO.But I guess Ward ran out of characters we currently care enough about to give a shit about a book with them as main characters. She's got, what? The Shadows, the BoB, Muhrder, Lassiter (who she already stated needs to happen AFTER Tohr) and, oh yeah... Qhuay. But I guess 4 books were not enough built up for them...JM/XHEXFirst of all, you need to know I'm completely biased when it comes to these two. They are my favorite m/f couple. Xhex can do no wrong in my eyes, I'm her bitch and will always be. I stan them so hard they should fucking adopt me.I read spoilers before reading the book and knew they had some problems. At first I thought, so soon?! WTF. But it made total sense. In fact, I'm glad this happened because someone had to make these warriors see women are more than soft, obliging creatures they own.I still believe John is the worst and most selfish BFF someone could have, but he's one of the best boyfrands from the bunch of mated dudes we have in the series, IMO. I have a love/hate relationship with the handsome son of a bitch.XHEX (and the oppresion of men)Xhex was amazing, perfect, flaw free, better than your fave, best bias you can bias and the ultimate HBIC in this book AGAIN.She stand in front of the whole Brotherhood and called them an "anachronistic group of misogynists", and very rightly so! She is greatly needed in this misogynist vamp society. You're mated and suddenly all the males look at your mate for approval to let you do shit?! Horrible dejá vù of women not being allowed to open their own bank accounts for example without their husband's signed permission. *shudders* I love the Brothers but they need to work on their close-minded view of females ASAP. Btw, during all her ordeal against the oppression of testosterone, where the fuck was Payne?AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO NOTICED THIS BS?The only female (Xhex) who seems to EVEN care about this general chauvinist behavior is constantly described as manly and masculine. Why can't feminine women notice this and FIGHT AGAINST IT, too?? Are Marissa, Mary, Ehlhenhah, Cormia, Bella or Beth grateful and content their mates let them get outta the mansion and do appropriate work for women?! Marissa thinking "I'm so lucky, Butch is old fashioned but he never complained about me working" made me want to punch her in the face. You may not see it, but that's classic fucked up thinking for women in regards of their rights in society according to men. She is grateful her husband allows her to do as she pleases? Bitch, please. That thought should not exist in the first fucking place!And don't get me started on the needing bullshit. "Servicing", my ass.LAYLAJ. R. Ward has ruined this character for me, verily. I can no longer stand to see her getting any kind of attention from any male, at all. My blood literally boils and I want to smack her. It's irrational at this point.She possesses not a single redeeming quality IMO. You may be thinking, but she's selfless and lives to service the warriors! If that is the case, let me direct you to my previous point. Layla is the worse example of women embracing chauvinism. Examples:"Providing blood to males of worth was all that was left of her calling. All that she had in her life.""Let us do what we must. For the future."Those are just a few of the little pearls of wisdom she presented us with in this book. Qhuinn has been "educating" her for months to see life is much more than just servicing men and wanting cock, and yet she's still thinking exactly the same? Qhuinn, sts but yo wasting yor time, bud.Plus, is she dumb? No, seriously. I'm actually asking this for real. She's been in the mansion for a few years now, right? She must know everyone who lives there, right? Plus, she's been hunting for a mate so she must know all the males, right? And yet, she mistakes Xcor and Throe for BDB Warriors...? She didn't notice anything shaddy when Throe called her in the middle of no fucking where? Or when she never saw them in the mansion after weeks of waiting? She so conviently never asked anyone about the warrior she had fed, either. And then, when she finds out who they truly are she faints, she is in distress, she can't believe they fooled her... Oh poor, poor victim of the cruel system. Note my sarcasm, please.She's already started to bond with Xcor (pretty hardcorely, too) and the first backbone she shows is to betray him and help them TO KILL HIM?! She's so worried about getting her servicing "job" taken from her, she's ready to sell her mum if needed. Not even once did she try to convince them of some way out for the male she's already fallen for. I'm sorry, I can't respect her. She's selfish, she wants wants wants and doesn't think of consecuences or other people's needs/feelings. She's so selfish she wants a baby to feel better, FFS!!!Conclusion:XCOR/BoB/LAYLAMostly: Meh. I'm sad Ward is going to use this pontentially awesome HEA storyline in Xcor and Layla, tbh. The BoB started a bit zzZZzz but after Xcor betrayed Throe things picked up pace and turned interesting.The gay undertones between Xcor/Throe, Zypher/Throe, everyone/Throe were greatly appreciated. Throe is the glue keeping the Bastards together, everyone is his bitch! :DI'm also thinking ex-Aristocrat Throe and Super-Aristocra Saxton could be fun to read!QHUINNDuring the first half of the book, Qhuinn's angst was so beautiful my heart ached for him. I'm not ashamed to admit I ugly cried when he got recognition from the Brothers.He is, however, a fucking dumbass. Can't deny the truth. I love him, and bless his heart but he duuuumb. He needs to grow so much to be able to reach Blay. And don't get me started on what a coward he is. Honestly, I'm mad at JRW for doing this to Qhuay. Not with Qhuinn.She made Qhuinn hold back his feelings because he thought he was not good enough for so long, and then she made him have a kid on a whim and change his mind about holding back with Blay on another. She spent 4 books building up his character, layer after layer, and it was so good!! And then idk, she went on crack? And ruined it all in a 30 secs decision. Just... WTF? Plus, maybe this is just me but... Since he is aware of his feelings for Blay now, shouldn't he be more concerned about not hurting him? Sure, he believes Blay has moved on and no longer cares about him (convenient plot device nº56730367) but when you love someone you obsess over silly things, such as, oh idk, "I know Blay has moved on, but I used to hurt him with my whoring around. Maybe this still bothers him even when he's happily mated with someone else and I should do something about it"??Talk about not knowing how to properly pine for a person. Talk about dumbasses plot devices.QHUINN & LAYLA BFFsWhenever Qhuinn called Layla "baby girl" or touched her in any way, I got so mad at some point I realized I was projecting on Blay and getting all jealous and possessive. If I were Blay, after being mated, I couldn't stand the thought of that bitch anywhere near us. Sorry, could never work for me... Even when Blay is a fucking saint, I can't see it realistic for him to accept her in the middle of their marriage, especially after being hurt by Qhuinn's slutty behavior for years. Blay is flaw free, but his confidence is touching rock bottom when it comes to Qhuinn. There has to be an issue about this between them or I call BS.But back at the unpleasant subject that are Qhuinn and Layla. I guess Ward was aiming at "awww they are BFFs, how qt is that?!" but sorry, couldn't go there with them. Even Layla thinking she was over him sounded hollow and fake to my ears. It just didn't make sense with the rest of her behavior. She's pretty much the same after months of ~discovering the world~ and yet she has realized her feelings for Qhuinn weren't real? Bitch please anyone else?THE BIG OH NO, YOU DIDN'THDY JRW HFDY doesn't even start covering it. She went there. She fucking went there.Already-bonded Layla and Bonded-for-3-Books-at-least Qhuinn decided the solution to all their issues was to have a kid together! Bringing a child to the world like it is a business transaction is not right. The way she manipulated him into this was disturbing, too. “You’re my only hope, and I yours. … ”For someone playing so dumb about certain things (such as traitors) she was verily must cunning in convincing Qhuinn. She knew exactly what to say to use his issues and weak points against him."Let us do what we must. For the future."Oh yeah, the whole vampire race depends on you two! Now go populate the earth!I knew Qhuinn was a weak coward (see his relationship with Blay for examples) but my god, he went from "I will NEVER have sex with her to prevent that Fade vision to happen" to "A child sounds like a fantastic idea and that Face vision assures it will happen!" in less than 0.30 secs. *blinks a few times in confusion* Also: 1) No'One could barely talk when the needing hit her while Layla had a whole conversation with Qhuinn??? 2) Layla had been to the other side but not enough to get a free pass on the needing triggering??? 3) She decided to risk it and not freak out like the rest of the females *just in case*??? Pfff please.And hey, WHERE THE FUCK WAS PHURY WHEN THIS TRAIN WRECH HAPPENED?!They had isolated No'One and still, it seemed a porn movie was being filmed in the mansion while she was through her needing. And yet, when Qhuinn takes needing!Layla to his room, no one seems to notice or care enough to says "OH WAIT SOMEONE IS DEFLOWERING A MOST VERILY SACRED CHOOSEN DURING HER NEEDING, DANGER, DANGER, PREGGO TIMES, DANGER."In vampire age, Qhuinn is a fucking kid. How come no one stopped them from making this huuuuge mistake?! Even Qhuinn thought Phury was going to kill him and yet, Phury was no where to be seeing. Not before, not during, not after. Perhaps Ward is holding those ~precious moment~ for the next book?I should have been glad they were awkward as fuck after it and clearly not ~in lurv~, but my god, this is such a huge mess I can't even rejoice in the little mercies. And I'm assuming some people will be mad at Qhuinn for caring so much about her after it, but come on, IF this had to happen, he'd be an even bigger asshole if he didn't act like this now, tbh.I still don't undertand WHY Ward went there. I can't see anyone being pleased with this. Qhuinn/Layla fans? (Legit question: Do they really exist?) "Oh so romantic, they share a kid while they mate someone else." FRUSTRATED AND PISSED. Layla stans? "My girl deserves respect and a male who worshippes only her!" FRUSTRATED AND PISSED. Qhuay fans? Oh please, do I have to explain this one? FRUSTRATED AND ROYALLY PISSED.Conclusion:FUTURE DAUGHTERXhex: "But why would they want a young? That shit was crazy town" (There's a good reason why Xhex is my fave!)^^^ Only shade of light in this mess is how IMO Ward showed the whole thing as something negative. The undertone was something along the lines of "look at these two lost souls making a decision for the most fucked up of reasons". That's the only tiny positive thing on all this.This child is going to come to this world and be taken care of by a girl who lives in a fantasy world, unable to take care of herself, selfish and delusional and with a daddy so full of his own issues he's nowhere near ready for any kind of responsability. And hey, congrats! Your step-dad is Xcor! Woohoo! I wish the kid wouldn't exist... Well, scratch that. I wish Layla and her needing didn't exist. But Qhuinn's daughter? Sorry to say, I'm the biggest fucking sap in the world and I already love her. She's fault-free and part of Qhuinn. #noregrets #comeatmebroBLAYBlaylock is, with Xhex, my favorite character. At this point I'm only invested in his happiness and fuck the world. He deserves only the very best, and maybe at this point some people believe Qhuinn doesn't match that description (big surprise here), but Blay wants him and I want Blay to be happy, so I'm still pinning hard for Qhuay to happen.“I’m surprised … ” At how awful this felt."As that fucking chandelier twinkled overhead, Blay said roughly, “I’m still in love with him.”(GPOY of me while reading this scene)He broke my heart so much I don't think I'll ever recover from it. He is my most dearest character ever. And what's happening to him is so unfair, in so many levels. Maybe he's the character with the least tragic past or lesser issues, but my god, life is fucking him up royally over and over. When is it going to be enough for Ward's standard of tortured men?! Even when he gets his man, he'll have to share him with someone else. How fucking fair is that? For him, for Layla or for us. "If he’d been able to, he’d have jumped up and torn that goddamn cocksucking light fixture off the goddamn cocksucking ceiling."If that didn't cover perfectly well the general sentiment I don't know what could. Blay losing it was so liberating. It was like I was losing it with him. About fucking time, too!SAXTONSaxton is a fucking saint. My creys. This male of worth deserves a good, long, thick cock handsome, flawless male to service him for life.The fact that it was him who suggested Qhuinn should get some recognition for his brave actions was such a neat move. I can't wait for Saxton and Qhuinn to have a stronger family bond. #sapAnd yet... Why the fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu- did he stop Blay when he tried to storm out the room? Maybe he was headed to Qhuinn's room to stop that madness from happening!!!!!! Am I the only one who yelled NOOOOOOOOO?BLAY/SAXTONBLAY BUTT-FUCKED SAXTON WITHOUT LUBE!!!!!!!Sorry, I *had* to say it. For a moment it was like reading a yaoi comic, where men always have self-lubricating bottoms. Hopefully this was an out of the moment thing and Ward knows this is not the norm for future references. Or maybe she pulls a "gay vamps can self-lubricate themselves at will *poker face*"…? You never know!Still, not enough details. I know, none HEAs don't get sex screen time, but hey, someone remembers that sympath bitch and Rehv? Hmmm... yeah.MY DEAREST QHUAY *CHEST HURTS*I'm actually so disappointed in Ward. I used to believe in her. I trusted her. 100% But she's been dragging out their story for too long and adding ridiculous plot devices to hold them back. Don't bullshit me anymore with "they aren't ready". They are and they were. You made Torh be ready and stuffed a whole year into a book to make it happen, so STFU and give us Qhuay already!Onto more fangirling comments: Qhuinn's physical reaction when his stare met Blay's was so intense I forgot to breath for a moment.And I guess we're going for full circles here. First Blay told Qhuinn he loved him and Qhuinn didn't hear him (very convenient) and now Qhuinn told Blay he loved him, and very conveniently again, Ward used John's self-centered character to mistake the tone and who Qhuinn was talking to, to cockblock Qhuay ONCE AGAIN.There has been so much cock-blocking between these two, I'm glad they are both males or they wouldn't know what a penis looks like anymore at this point.When Qhuinn was injured, they were so heartbreaking, so clearly in pain and longing for each other. It's exaclty what I needed. But then, Blay believes that angsty tear is because Qhuinn is in pain and is about to leave, Qhuinn calls his name and he ignores him?! You love someone, and no matter how much that person rejected you, if they call you like that in a moment of need/being hurt, you turn around and see what they want. No, seriously, stop with the stupid cock-blocking!!!! And yet, when Jane is like wtf at Blay, another cock-block happens with Saxton holding him back outside the room. Can we please be done with the delay already? Those are just weak, weak, weak excuses. And I'm tired of them. I've seen lots of people discussing what those two things that had to happen for Qhuay to be ready were, and my two cents are: Blay's reaction to Qhuinn/Layla during her needing, and Qhuinn realizing life is too short and you can lose your loved ones in a moment.WHO IS NEXTDuh:"As Blay started to straighten, like a message had been received, Qhuinn thought 'That's right, buddy. Our future has come…'"Side Note: Qhuinn, you stupid fuck, you just got a girl pregnant and NOW you decide to go after Blay?!!?!EDIT: March 31 2012 "THEIR TIME HAS COME. 2013- NEXT BDB HARDCOVER…..BLAY & QHUINN!!!!"Note: The gifs posted here keep getting exceeded bandwidth with too many views. omg guise… What are y'all doing? :__).

J.R Ward is the 1 New York Times bestselling author of numerous novels, including the Black Dagger Brotherhood series She lives in the South her family.. Bestseller Book Lover Reborn Verily, Ward, you hath redeemed thyself in mine eyes.Lover Unleashed was disappointing for me on several levels. But I knew that, if Ward did it right, Tohrment's book had the potential to be the best installment to the series in a long time. I've wanted him to find peace and healing ever since that fateful scene at the end of Lover Awakened, but I knew it would take time. And now that his time has finally come, I'm pleased to say that Ward doesn't disappoint.Tohrment & No'One:I know a lot of people aren't happy that Tohrment doesn't get Wellsie back. I'm not happy about it, either. But save for getting Wellsie back, I believe Tohr was dealt the best hand possible in Lover Reborn.Let me be frank: I had very little faith that Ward could pull a romance like this off. Seriously, Tohrment and Wellsie? Probably one of the most romantic couples I've ever come across in the PNR/UF genre. Their back story, the glimpses we see of their relationship in the first three books . . . how can you possibly follow an act like that? Some of the sentences in this are like an assault to the solar plexus. There were scenes where I felt like I was chopping onions. Suffice it to say I cried a lot while reading Tohr's story. Man, Tohrment . . . he just . . . tears me apart. Truly.As Tohr says himself, No'One could never replace Wellsie; but the emotional — and physical — connection between Tohr and No'One is undeniable. Tohr and No'One have a lot in common (each has been through a tremendous ordeal in their lifetime), they've meant in the past and spent an entire year in each other's company, and No'One is incredibly understanding and supportive of Tohr and his situation. I don't think any other female could've brought him back from the brink the way No'One did.I didn't expect to like No'One as much as I did — I've never really liked the Chosen women, and although No'One isn't a Chosen, she's very similar to them. But she is humble, kind, and, underneath the shield she's erected to protect herself, passionate. Ward has surprised me before, and she definitely did in the case of No'One's character. The best part about the romance in this is how slow it builds. One year passes from beginning to end of this installment, and Tohr doesn't give himself over to the possibility of loving another easily. It isn't until near the end that he truly opens his heart to No'One. (view spoiler)[But did you notice? No bonding scent. Save for a little show of possessiveness (which I think could just be chalked up to the nature of a male vampire), Tohr didn't bond with No'One. I have to say that I liked this fact very much. For me, that would've discredited Tohr's love for his previous shellan as well as the bonds the other Brothers have with their shellans. I don't think that the bonding thing should be taken lightly.Don't get me wrong; I'm glad he's in love with her and all, but I think him bonding with her would've been too much. I hope it doesn't come into play in future books. (hide spoiler)]Lassiter:Can somebody get me a bib? Seriously, you can have all of the Brothers (except Z, of course; I got dibs on him a long time ago), just give me Lassiter! God, he just gets more interesting — and sexy — with each book. And when his own book is finally released, I'll be one of the first ones at the bookstore ready to trample over the other shoppers to get my copy.And something tells me his book is going to be very similar to Tohr's and maybe even equally sad. If you're observant and you've read Hello, Old Friend and Book Order in the Brothers on the Board section of the insider's guide, then you know that Lassiter had a woman he loved who is now either missing or dead. There is also some hinting of that in this book. I don't know if Ward will have him get her back, or have him end up with someone else. Since Ward seems to enjoy torturing her fans, it'll probably be the latter.John & Xhex:Just as there was a lot of Vishous in Payne's book (for obvious reasons), there is a lot of John and, naturally, Xhex in Tohr's book. Their relationship gets tested and, similarly to Vishous and Jane in Lover Unleashed, they go through a real rough patch. One of the things I like most about Ward's couples is that, when their book is over, their story isn't. There'll always be new trials and new developments in her characters' lives.There are some really emotional — and erotic (seriously, they get twice as many sex scenes as the main couple) — scenes with John and Xhex in this. Fans of theirs should be very happy.And for John and Xhex, I'm sure the trials aren't over. When Murhder finally gets into the series full-time, I'm sure he'll shake things up quite a bit for them, as he is Xhex's former lover. Can you say cohntehst?Qhuinn & Blay a.k.a. Qhuay (& Saxton and Layla, or as I like to think of them, The Third & Fourth Wheels): There isn't much Qhuinn and Blay in this. :( Neither of them get much page time, because John and Xhex and the Bastards hog it all take up the majority of the side story's time. Still, there are some good scenes with them — both together and individually --- and they do say absence makes the heart grow fonder. (Although I don't see how I could get any more fond of those two . . .) On the plus side, there aren't any lesser POVs!Given the way chapter seventy-six ends . . . Qhuay's story must be soon. Very soon. Whether it will be a novella or a full installment remains to be seen. All I can say is, if it turns out to be the former, it sure as hell better be tome-ish, anyway. (view spoiler)[So Qhuinn and Layla are going to have a child together, huh? I know it will infuriate many readers (I know it did me — at first), but at the same time I can see the beauty of it and the reason behind it.That little girl will be one of the most loved children you can imagine. She'll have three parents — two fathers and a mother — and she'll have the whole Brotherhood and their shellans to care and love for her as well. It may not be ideal, and it may not be what a lot of readers had in mind for Qhuinn and Blay, but I can see the potential and beauty that this prospect holds. And I see why she wrote it this way. After Qhuinn was shunned by his family and the aristocracy, I think he deserves a full family. And this way, he'll get to spend the rest of his life not only with the love of his life (Blay, naturally) and the Brotherhood, but a beautiful baby girl. (hide spoiler)]Oh, Saxton . . . Ward has hinted as to what will become of him in a future installment, and I'm pretty sure I know what it is and that all of his fans (including myself) will not like it. Especially since in Lover Reborn it becomes pretty clear that Saxton has fallen for Blay.As for Layla . . . well, I won't give it away, but it is now very clear who Layla's HEA is. And despite the fact that I've never been a big fan of Layla . . . I'm very much looking forward to her story. (This is really because of the male she ends up with. He is all kinds of hot.) (view spoiler)[Xcor! Xcor! Xcor! He may just end up being my favorite male character — next to Zsadist, of course.Which reminds me . . . The situation between Throe, Xcor, and Layla reminds me a bit of the one featured earlier in the series between Phury, Zsadist, and Bella. Phury had been attracted to Bella, had yearned for her, even; but in the end, his interest in her didn't compare to the powerful, once-in-a-lifetime (especially for someone like Z) connection that Zsadist had with Bella. I believe it will be much the same for Layla and the two males who seek her out. And I'm sure Throe will eventually end up with someone else special. (Another Chosen, perhaps?) (hide spoiler)]Band of Bastards:I predicted in my review of Lover Unleashed that the B.o.B. (Band of Bastards) would most likely end up becoming good and each member would get their own book. Now . . . I still say that will happen, but I think it's going to take a while. I think it would be a good idea, because without them Ward doesn't have very many possibilities for future books. I think if it were ever to go in that direction, it would be a long time from now and a lot would have to happen in order for any of them to be ready for their own book. Ward actually talks about the B.o.B. in a YouTube video (specifically Xcor), which you can watch here. (Turn up the volume if you wanna hear what she says) (view spoiler)[Oh please, please, please just leave him a little bit naughty . . . ! (hide spoiler)]Favorite Quotes:"The quick and the dead are all the same. Everyone's just looking for home.""She wished for Qhuinn this soldier. She truly did.""Then again, he supposed the healing process, in contrast to trauma, was gentle and slow . . .The soft closing of a door, rather than a slam.""Our future has come."In short, I enjoyed this installment very much and I'm happy that Tohr is finally happy.Note: After I wrote my review, Ward announced who the next book will be about.
