Lover Eternal by J.R. Ward
Sunday, April 16, 2006

Within the brotherhood, Rhage is the vampire with the strongest appetite. He's the best fighter, the quickest to act on his impulses, and the most voracious lover-for inside him burns a ferocious curse cast by the Scribe Virgin. Possessed by this dark side, Rhage fears the times when his inner dragon is unleashed, making him a danger to everyone around him. When Mary Luce is unwittingly thrown into the vampire world, she must rely on Rhage's protection. Knowing that Mary feels the same intense animal attraction, Rhage must make her his alone...

This is the second book in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. I enjoyed it much more than the first one. Primarily because we don't have to go through all of the characters again, it just sorta picked up where the first book left off.

I really loved the hero in this book, Rhage. Again, I still don't really find vampires attractive, but Rhage was still awesome. I loved how strong he was, and how he just knew what he wanted and went for it. In this case, he wanted Mary; not really my favorite heroine but not bad either.

Mary was a little annoying at times. As soon as I read she had a history of cancer related problems, I thought "Oh great here we go." I knew Mary was going to feel like she didn't deserve someone as gorgeous as Rhage, and I was okay with it at first. But gee, after they made love the first time, I woulda thought she would be over that insecurity. Nope. She had to really push Rhage's buttons. I was feeling Rhage's frustration and anger. I wanted to shout at Beth. How dare she say those things to him!

I'm a little sad we didn't get to see more of Butch and Marissa, but I still love Butch. He's so great. And I loved the transition into Zsadist's story. I think he and Bella are cute together. Actually, all of these brothers are really growing on me. I still don't like their rap music-thuggish ways, but oh well. It makes me laugh whenever I read those scenes.

Rhage's sacrifice in the end made me almost want to throw the book against the wall, but thank goodness it turned out the way it did. For a second there I thought Mary was a goner, or that they would never see each other again. I guess I was a little slow and actually believed Mary wasn't the one for him, considering V made the prophecy about Rhage's destiny being a Virgin.

I'm giving this one a 4 out of 5. Can't wait for the next one!
