Review of “Lover At Last” – J.R. Ward

Qhuinn, son of no one, is used to being on his own. Disavowed from his bloodline, shunned by the aristocracy, he has finally found an identity as one of the most brutal fighters in the war against the Lessening Society. But his life is not complete. Even as the prospect of having a family of his own seems to be within reach, he is empty on the inside, his heart given to another….

I usually don’t share spoilers from a story, but in this case, I will been discussing details from the story so turn back now if you haven’t read the story yet. 🙂

We all knew it was only a matter of time before Blay and Saxton ended their relationship. When your heart belongs to another, substitutes will only do for so long. That’s why they are called substitues. 

Saxton, despite his hurt feelings, took the end of the relationship rather well. Yes, he went out and shagged another fella  but if he hadn’t, Qhuinn wouldn’t have seen red, Blay wouldn’t have confronted him about going nuclear on Saxton, and those two wouldn’t have finally been together. Well, maybe not so soon. In hindsight, Saxton did them a favor. He, in a roundabout way, kickstarted their relationship.

However, their relationship was only sexual for a while. For a bit, they wouldn’t admit they loved each other. Qhuinn still assumed Blay was with Saxton and Blay allowed him to continue thinking this. I can understand where Blay was coming from. He was trying to protect his heart because in the past, Qhuinn didn’t do “love” and relationships. It took almost the entire book before these two warriors announced their love for each other. And when they did, the sweetest scenes followed. 

Now if their “story” wasn’t enough to entice you to read this BDB installment, the other characters, old and newly introduced, will. Someone from Qhuinn’s past makes a surprise reappearance and NO I will not divulge who that is. That’s one spoiler I won’t share. 

However, I will say the Brothers get two new houseguests and one has the major hots for Selena the Chosen. Who is it, you ask? My lips are sealed but I can’t wait for HIS and her story. 🙂
