Lover Unleashed (Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 9) - J.R. Ward How I've missed the Brothers! I've been waiting for this book to come out and it did not disappoint. Payne and Manny are a great match. I like that he isn't threatened by the fact that she can take care of herself. At one point there's a fight where Payne ends up kicking some butt and, instead of feeling like less of a man, Manny find it kind of hot. I like that. This book seems to be split between Payne and V's story which makes sense they are twins are are closely intertwined. As readers know, V has a lot of issues from his past that he hasn't dealt with and in this book it all comes to a head. I liked that his relationship with Jane changed and that everything isn't all roses all the time. They have problems and they work through them. I have to tell you that it broke my heart when V handed Jane the bag in the bedroom. Luckily it all works out in the end. I also love Manny. He's funny and kind and holds his own against the Brothers. I am glad that he was reunited with Jane as well. Their friendship was an important part of both their lives and it's nice to see them get it back.The only thing that really keeps this from being 5 stars is the story of Xcor and his men. It was interesting and I have not doubt that they will play a larger roll in the next book, but they just didn't feel as threatening as I think they could have. Xcor backed down pretty easily once he found out why Payne killed the Bloodletter. I admire his honor but I felt like it deserved a bigger reaction and maybe a bit of fighting. The lessers are also noticeable absent in this book (except for a couple of skirmishes). All in all, I really liked this book. Unfortunately now I have to wait for the next one. :(
