Lover Awakened by J.R. Ward

Date Read: 2009

Genre: PNR, Romance

In the shadows of the night in Caldwell, New York, there’s a deadly war raging between vampires and their slayers. And there exists a secret band of brothers like no other - six vampire warriors, defenders of their race. Of these, Zsadist is the most terrifying member of the Black Dagger Brotherhood.

A former blood slave, the vampire Zsadist still bears the scars from a past filled with suffering and humiliation. Renowned for his unquenchable fury and sinister deeds, he is a savage feared by humans and vampires alike. Anger is his only companion, and terror is his only passion—until he rescues a beautiful aristocrat from the evil Lessening Society.

Bella is instantly entranced by the seething power Zsadist possesses. But even as their desire for one another begins to overtake them both, Zsadist’s thirst for vengeance against Bella’s tormentors drives him to the brink of madness. Now, Bella must help her lover overcome the wounds of his tortured past, and find a future with her…

Lover Awakened by J.R. Ward Book 3: Bella and Z–probably the central characters of the series. Only because their story is one of repairs of past issues and hope for the future. Also I can see how they are going to use Z’s past to help John/Darius/Therror in the future. As always she continues the story of the fight between the Lessers and the Brotherhood with focusing on the main fight between the Fore-Lesser and which Brother he is having issues at the moment. We learn alot in this book about how the Vampire society used to be (though limited to a certain group) and mainly how this is going to impact the future. All the brothers are in it again and their women! You will enjoy watching the story unfold!
