Lover Enshrined Viral Kindle 2.5 Really don't care for Phury StarsSpoilersFirst read 2014Reread 4/1/2017Oh God where do I start with the hot mess that is Phury? This book is the one I like the least of all the books in this series and that's because I really don't care for Phury. Let me just say that I like Cormia but I don't really understand how she and Phury fell in love. He totally ignored her for like 6 months. When did they spend enough time together to fall in love? Phury is a total drug addict for 85% of the book. He spends almost the whole book doing drugs, buying drugs, and talking to an imaginary voice in his head that he called the wizard. And us readers had to deal with The wizards constant stupid, boring ass chatter for like 90% of the book. Was J.R. Ward watching the Flintstones when she wrote this book because the wizard was just like the great gazoo and drove me bat shit crazy!Phury was so annoying to me. He was always playing the victim, feeling sorry for himself and whining about how bad, his life was, how much he failed everyone, but instead of getting off his stupid ass and doing something about it he just got high. Z said it best when he told him “For fuck's sake, get off the cross. Someone else needs the wood.” Cormia was likable but not real deep as a chosen she doesn't really have any personality. It was cute when she would learn something new since she was kinda like a newborn with no knowledge of the world around her. But it was sad that everything she would newly discover she did it with John Matthew because she was completely abandoned by Phury. He was getting high while she was going outside for the first time, running in grass for the first time, watching tv, a movie, eating M&Ms, etc. Which just made me dislike Phury more. He should have been there! I feel like Phury and Cormia didn't really have a relationship. And what little bit of one they started to have Phury ruined by casting her aside as first mate and trying to take another. I don't care that he didn't end up sleeping with anyone but Cormia. He hurt her and rejected her and it pissed me off. Yes he does redeem himself a little at the end but it was just too late for me. I was glad the chosen were freed and with them V's twin sister. I also really loved all the parts with John Matthew and Xhex. They have such strong chemistry. I also melted when Blay and Qhuinn had their first kiss. Little Nalla was born at the end of this book and I love Z as a father. I love Z period. Overall it was an okay read but all the stars are for everyone but Phury. If I was rating this book on Phury and Cormia alone I would have gave this book 1 stars. Thank God there was other story lines going on that saved this book for me. Below I leave my favorite quote from the bookI want to fuck you, he mouthed, not caring that he was making a fool out of himself. "Do you?" Clearly, she read lips. Either that or cocks, because God knew his had its hand raised and waving in his jeans. Yeah, I do. "Lot of women in this club." Only one you. "I think you'd be better off with them." And I think you'd be better off with me.-John Matthew and Xhex.

Popular Ebook Lover Enshrined “You tell the others I was not worthy of her.” As the Directrix’s mouth fell open, he pointed his finger at her. “That’s a goddamned order. You tell them . . . she is too good for me. I want her elevated to a special rank. . . . I want her fucking enshrined, do you understand me? You do right by her or I’ll bust this place into ruins.”I have to say that these 4 stars go to the BDB world and stories revolving around all the other characters. I enjoyed the book even though I wasn't thrilled with the MCs, and in this case, YAY for J.R. Ward and her inserting as many characters as possible in her books :D The storyAfter accepting the role as Primale of the vampire race, Phury brings Cormia, his First Mate to the BDB mansion, without consummating the union, which means he still hasn't accepted all the other forty Chosen waiting for him to impregnate them. Yep I just said that ahahahhah :D He is still in love with Bella, and is easing his suffering with red smoke and drugs, which is getting worse by the day.His drug addiction is making him think of nothing else but his next fix, and his obligations as Primale and one of the Brothers are in second place.His other favorite pass time is torturing lessers, and the Brothers are worried about him, which makes Wrath take drastic measures to force Phury to wake up and see where his life is heading.Cormia has adapted to her new life with the Brotherhood, even though she wants the closeness Phury isn't giving her. She's in love with him, but knows he still loves Bella.Torn between wanting him for herself, and her duty to all the Chosen, she will have to make a decision, fight for Phury or return to the Scribe Virgin and let another take her place.The story - Well, the MCs don't really have that big of a role here. If those two were more in the book, I'd probably hate it.On the other hand, if the author made the characters a bit different (without the damned Wizard!!!!!!!), and they had more time in the book, I might have loved it. Who knows, but as it is, I was most looking forward to reading absolutely everyone else in the book :)))))There really isn't a big storyline here, mostly Phury dealing with the drug thing, his inner battles, and the other characters dealing with a shift in the Lesser Society, a new bad guy *gasp*The bad guys - Lessers. Again. *yawn*Those morons get on my nerves like crazy. I really can't stand them.Lash. OMG! The most irritating character ever to be created! EVER!!!! I want to kill him! Then revive him! Then torture him a bit! Then kill him! Then do it all over again!!! OMG! *rant over*The characters - Well first, there is Rhevenge. He has a big role here (well 'cause his book is next). We get to see exactly what is the deal with his blackmailer, and it's some twisted sh*t I tell you!!! Terrible, I hate it all! I mean I love Rhev, but all that's going on... Jeez. Very disturbing.Tohrment - finally. Won't go any more into detail so I don't spoil it for you :)Lassiter - new character (I love that guy - LOVE!), and I somehow totally forgot that he knows everyone already :D John/Xhex - :D In my first read of the series I didn't really care one way or another about both of them, but now :DDD I can't wait to get to their book!!! "Next time say my name" ahahahhahaha Love it!Qhuinn/Blaylock - after the attack in the bathroom (!!! shock !!!), everything changes between the three friends, and we find out more about each of them, the family background and stuff :) And finally, FINALLY we get a few scenes with B/Q <3 Highlight of the book :)))))The feel of the book - Somehow, this feels like a transition book for me. It has huge parts in it just for the characters for the following books, their storylines have started here already, and the new grand bad guy is made here too, plus there are loads of other characters introduced...So yeah, this is like a "filler" book, stuffed with loads of characters but without anything major happening.Maybe it's just me. I don't know."It was hard to know what was worse: him being with her and all her sisters, or him being with none of them because his heart was held by another."Cormia is one of the Chosen, she is to be the Primale's First Mate, well, when he gets around to having sex with her.She hasn't known anything beyond the Sanctuary, and it takes her a while to adapt to her new life.She is in love with Phury, even though he's still in love with Bella.Eventually they start getting closer, but Phury just makes decisions that drive them apart :((("He thought of her brushing out his hair, and realized with a shock that she had actually managed to calm him in those moments—and not just through the strokes of the brush, either. Her very presence eased him, from her jasmine scent, to the way she moved so fluidly, to the soft sound of her voice."Well, Cormia was OK, definitely the better half of the couple :DI liked her, but didn't love her. She had potential, but not enough page time, and definitely not a good combo with Phury's character being whacked.Oh well. There were a few good scenes with her when she went exploring, and watching Dirty Dancing with John :D That was funny :)Phury stepped up close to her. Her body was roaring with so much heat, he could feel it against his own skin, and her jasmine scent was as thick as his blood.He flashed her his fangs and hissed like a cat. “We’re going to my room.”“But I have no reason to go to your bedroom.”“Yes. You do.”Phury is now a Primale and is obligated to revive the vampire race.He took the job to save his friend, but didn't really TAKE the job, he doesn't want to do it, and is dragging it all along, pushing it back so he doesn't have to think about it.He brought Cormia to the Mansion, but doesn't intend to sleep with her and seal the deal that way. He's ignoring Wrath and direct orders, he's doing drugs and butchering lessers like a maniac.He has a voice inside his head (The Wizard) who is basically a big suicide mission waiting to happen.It takes a whole lot of sh*t to happen for him to pull his head out of his a** (pardon my expression)."Okay. Fine. Whatever she wanted. Hell, at this point, she could have told his heart not to beat, and the thing would have complied with the order quite cheerfully. She had become his control tower, his body’s master, and anything she told him to do or say or get for her, he would. No questions asked. No care of the means."I think I would've really liked Phury if it wasn't for the Wizard. Honestly, I don't remember ever hating an imaginary character so much. No, actually it isn't hate, it's just irritation! It went so much that Phury started to get on my nerves too, along with the damn Wizard!Such a shame :( His relationship with Cormia was weird too, at one point he's madly in love with Bella, but a few days later he realises he's bonding with Cormia? Based on what? It's not like they spent any time together, there were one or two almost-sex scenes and that's it. I know most books here have that insta-love thing, but usually it's more believable. Or maybe it's just me again. I don't know, but I wish they got more page time with a REAL story and a REAL romance/falling in love thing.Through most of the book, Phury felt sorry for himself, and doing drugs. Well that one sentence could just describe him totally as a character :( BUT! I am very happy with how it all turned out, him being a Primale, and that decision at the end regarding it all. Very, very great, a big applause for him :)))))My favorite quotes from other characters:"No . . . this couldn’t be the Fade. The aches and pains in his body and the screaming in his head were too much like what he felt on Earth.Except, what about the sun? He was bathed in its warm glow, and yet he breathed.Man, if all that vampire-no-daylight shit was a lie, the race was an idiot as a whole."“What is wrong with you,” he whispered, “that you care so much about me?”Blay’s sad smile added about a million years to his age, lining his face with the kind of knowledge that came only after life kicked you in the nuts a number of times. “What is wrong with you that you can’t see why I would?”-------------------------------------------“One thing, though,” Qhuinn murmured.“What?”The voice that came out of his throat was unlike anything he’d ever heard from himself before. “If any guy breaks your heart or treats you like shit, I will bust him apart with my bare hands and leave his broken, bloody body for the sun.”-------------------------------------------They pulled apart, looked into each other’s eyes . . . and something shifted. In the silence of the whole training center, in the vast privacy of the moment, something changed.“Just once,” Blay said softly. “Do it just once. So I’ll know what it’s like.”“Getting him out didn’t save him.” Zsadist’s eyes drifted over. “That’s the point, Phury. There isn’t any saving him. There isn’t any saving me. I know that’s what you keep waiting for, living for. But . . . it’s never going to happen. Look . . . I can’t thank you, because . . . as much as I love Bella and my life and where I am now, I still go back there. I can’t help it. I still live it every day.”After a moment, Wrath turned to John. “This is Lassiter, the fallen angel. One of the last times he was on earth, there was a plague in central Europe—”“Okay, that was so not my fault—”“—that wiped out two-thirds of the human population.”“I’d like to remind you that you don’t like humans.”“They smell bad when they’re dead.”“All you mortal types do.”The glowing man laughed. “Well, if it isn’t good King Wrath and his band of merry-merry happy-happy. I swear you boys should do kiddie shows, you’re so fucking cheery.”“Great,” Rhage muttered, “his sense of humor’s still intact.”Vishous exhaled. “Maybe I can try to beat it out of him.”“Use his own arm to do it, if you can—”Wrath glared at the two of them, who shot him back a pair of who-us? stares.This book could've been better, you feel me?
