The ruthless and brilliant brother Vishous possesses a destructive curse and a frightening ability to see the future. As a member of the Brotherhood, he has no interest in love or emotion, only the battle with the Lessening Society. But when a mortal injury puts him in the care of a human surgeon, Dr. Jane Whitcomb compels him to reveal his inner pain and taste true pleasure for the first time-until a destiny he didn’t choose takes him into a future that does not include her…
Lover Unbound is one of the few books Ruby @ Bookishly Ruby finished before me but I was waiting her to catch up with me and before I knew it she had to wait for me. I think I might’ve over worked myself a bit with night shifts, another buddy read and then this one. You can read Ruby’s thoughts here.
Vishous, V to his friends is feeling a little bit down. Butch, his best friend and a guy he has feelings for just got mated and they live in the same apartment as he does. Vishous gets hurt and meets Jane. I loved the fact that he didn’t think he’d ever find someone but he didn’t even see Jane’s face before he got all possessive about her. I like that Jane is so smart and practical. She doesn’t let little things bother her and she’s a great doctor.
Vishous and Jane were cute together despite the whole kidnapping part. I love how Jane basically didn’t care about that and just wanted to help him and his brother. I just have a thing for a couples when hero is ready to do anything for the heroine. We didn’t get as many sweet things as I hoped but totally worth reading for these two.
I still don’t like John Matthew and think his chapters are pretty pointless. I loved Darius and I don’t really see similarities between the two expect the tattoo and how he’s starting to act more like a warrior, I guess. Just a whiny one. He’s usually just annoying but in Lover Unbound I hate how he made Layla feel because of his insecurities.
Let’s no even mention Jane’s parents. I don’t get why they were the way they were– just to make Jane’s grief about her sister bigger some how?
I had to lower my rating from my 2018 rating which was five stars. I guess I was right in my last review of the book that if my expectations were higher I’d rate it lower and here we go. I think a thing I remember happening in way way later in the books (like maybe after The Chosen) also affected my enjoyment of V and Jane.
I can’t say I’m that exited about Phury’s book. We haven’t even started it yet and I already feel bad for Cormia. She deserves better than being a second choice. I’m amazed after all the stress about what was going on with Bella, Zadist never got annoyed by his twin’s feeling for his shellan. I don’t hate Phury but I don’t understand why Ward decided to go down the road with him in love with Bella and I just hated some of his actions and thoughts because of his feelings. He actually mentioned something about giving up his happiness so his brother could be with a female they both loved. Phury never had a chance with Bella since from the beginning she only saw Zadist, so how did he see it as letting Bella go?
