It's time for the readers to learn about John Matthew
The Black Dagger Brotherhood are back again in the eighth book in the popular JR Ward series, Lover Mine.
This book follows the story of John Mathew, known as Tehrror in the old language. John has come way since being found abandoned shortly after birth in a bus station bathroom. He never felt like he belonged with humans, going through many years without knowing his vampire heritage until he was discovered by Bella and shown the world he truly belonged to.
John's world, as well as himself, has slowly been spiraling out of control of late. Tohr, the only father figure he's ever know, has returned to the Brotherhood, but John refuses to let him back in for fear of him just disappearing again. And the rejection of the only female he has feelings for has broken this once sweet young vampire into a hard, almost vicious drunken male.
Now that that female is missing, most likely taken by Lessers, John is now a male with a mission. Find the female, dead or alive, and if she still rejects him, he'll live with it. John has many allies in his quest, more than just the Brothers, Blaylock, Qhuinn and the shadows Trez and iAm, know exactly what Xhex means to John, even if he refuses to admit it.
However, as with most good stories, things don't always go to plan, and John and Xhex find themselves in a situation where they just may have to reveal their true feelings. Throw in a side story of a long thought dead member of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, who's gone slightly mad (thanks to someone close the Brothers) living in an attic in a rural B&B, and you'll find yourself caught up in all the happenings of Lover Mine.
JR Ward has delivered another classic, continuing the series of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, and showing readers that vampires can have a 'human' side.
