    Opening Line:

    ~ZSADIST YOU BROKE MY HEART~

    This is an amazing book and my favourite in the series. LOVER AWAKENED tells the agonizingly painful story of Zsadist, a former blood slave and most feared member of the Blackdagger Brotherhood. After Zsadist rescues the beautiful, aristocrat Bella from the Lessoning Society's torture facility she refuses to leave his side (or bed.) Craving the strength and security she now finds only with him. And it's with her growing love and patience that this reluctant hero ultimately `awakens'. It's a bumpy ride for our pair and this relationship will leave you in tears, both of joy and sadness as we witness Z's transformation from the `cold one' into a male of worth. A multilayered novel L.A of course has several stories and POV's running simultaneously and the action never stops. Full of suspense, erotic and ultimately heartbreaking.

    Introduced briefly in the past two books, we now get to find out what made Zsadist the way he is. A confirmed sociopath who avoids all relationships, Z is scarred, pierced, tattooed, violent and illiterate. He's the most feared Brother and distrusted by all because of his intimidating and just downright mean nature. He enjoys pain yet can't bare any kind of physical contact due to the years of physical and sexual abuse he suffered during his time as a blood slave. Zsadist makes for an unlikely romantic hero but JR brilliantly gains your sympathy and you will grow to love this misunderstood and abused character.

    Phury as Zsadist's twin plays a major role here, and through a series of flashbacks we learn the details of Z's enslavement and Phury's daring rescue of him. It's a striking scene resulting in the loss of his leg and Z's brutal scarring. Phury has spent his life consumed with fixing his twin and is riddled with guilt, sacrificing time and again and it's starting to take a toll. Now exhausted, he's playing a deadly game with the `red smoke' and despite his vow of celibacy can't help being attracted to Bella.

    We also get to know Rehvenge the Sympath club owner of Zerosum and John Mathew's story starts to unfold as he begins his training and accepts the love of a family. Of course all the Brothers get some attention so we get shots of Wrath, Rhage, Vishous, Butch and their respective `Shellans.' Some of my favourite scenes involve the Brothers just going about their daily business, little interludes in the kitchen, or hanging out playing pool and teasing each other. Unfortunately the Lessers continue their torment making things personal now as their leader Mr. O attempts to reclaim Bella and a shocking loss occurs within the Brotherhood family that will be felt throughout the rest of this series.

    Z and Bella's love story takes center stage throughout though and is utterly fascinating. From the moment of rescue Zsadist won't let anyone else near Bella. And despite being frightened of him she wants him. To Bella he is perfect and she slowly begins to seduce him. Z is subsequently terrified, feeling dirty and hating his body's response to her. When the two finally kiss however...sigh. Ultimately Z's feelings of unworthiness force him to push her away. Into the arms of a male of worth, those of his twin brother. When Bella goes into her 'needing' though which twin will ease her suffering? The celibate one or the one who can't bear to be touched?

    The climax of this book is simply unput-downable. With a suicide mission forcing one twin to sacrifice everything for the life of the other and a HEA that brings tears to your eyes as we get a rare glimpse of the future. Each book in this series just gets better and better but JR has outdone herself here. I would give this more *s if I could and can't recommend it enough

    Jesus, I hated Zsadist before this book. I thought of him as a ruthless killer, and he is. But there is another side of him that is revealed in this book. With Bella, Zsadist's tortured soul is exposed. You see a much darker side of him that is painful and I feel ashamed to say that I am captivated by him. Knowing him, that is the last thing he would want. Zsadist has no patience for those who show sympathy or pity him. And I respect him more for that.

    Jesus, I hated Zsadist before this book. I thought of him as a ruthless killer, and he is. But there is another side of him that is revealed in this book. With Bella, Zsadist's tortured soul is exposed. You see a much darker side of him that is painful and I feel ashamed to say that I am captivated by him. Knowing him, that is the last thing he would want. Zsadist has no patience for those who show sympathy or pity him. And I respect him more for that.

    This is one of the more darker books of the series. It's content is brooding and involves a lot of self-loathing. A lot of Phury's story is told here as well. Damn, the thing he goes through for his brother... I can't even imagine his pain. Now I can see why in Lover Enshrined he is such a mess. But God bless him for his efforts. He is a good male. Both of them are.

    And Wellsie. Poor woman. The hurt that Tohr and John must feel... I still cannot believe it.

    Also, John seems to be growing up already in this book. In the last few pages I found myself saying, "Good for him" as he picked up those weapons and practiced with them.

    Ward does an amazing job fitting happiness and sorrow and pain all together to create a delicious mix that is consumed by all. This series is to die for.

    Zsadist is a tortured soul, the darkest of the Brothers, the meanest. After spending a hundred years as a blood and sex slave, he has nothing left to give anyone, and he can barely stay alive for himself. He has survived

    Z is my favorite kind of man. He is scary shit, and I dig it. He is beyond saving, and he doesn’t want to be saved. He is HILARIOUS!!! Humor is my #1 favorite attribute in any man, especially sarcastic humor. I laugh at (almost) everything Z says. The other stuff he says just shreds my heart.

    Bella is a

    ine!!!! She saves Zsadist from himself. She saves Zsadist from death. She is devoted to him whole-heartedly and fights through all of his darkness. She is his constant.

    Bella is drawn to Z, and she decides that she wants him, and when Bella makes a decision, it’s final!!! I love her devotion to Z!! She is so confident and has such courage that she is the perfect match for him.

    Their love is...Gah!!! It’s push and pull. There isn't another love like theirs. He pushes her away so many times, but he cannot resist her love because she gives so much of herself to him.

    I LOVE the ending to this book! It has me up on my feet pumping my fist in the air! I love Z to death, but Bella makes this book so much better, and she contributes her own badass-ness to this ending!

    Whew...What a story! There is no way I can do a review and do justice to this book. Zsadist's story was everything and more that I was told. I have fallen hard for another one of JRW's brothers! Below are just a few of my thoughts/feelings.

    Zsadist is without a doubt one of the most tortured heroes I’ve read. He broke me. My heart shattered. His deep feelings of unworth tore me to shreds! His self loathing is palpable and the intense anguish he endures each day left me in pain. His intense self hatred at times was difficult to read.

    As the author reveals his past in small portions, my heart ached more. And when all was told, a nursery rhyme came to mind, Humpty Dumpty...all shattered to pieces never to be put together again. No, I promise I didn't relate this warrior with the fat egg, only the results of their fall. I soon learned the horrifying scar he wears on his face is nothing compared to his inner anguish.

    “Ruined, not broken” ----Heartbreaking words issued as a warning to the heroine, Bella, to stay clear of this brother!

    And what a heroine! Bella is so easy to love and I admired her inner strength and her determination.

    Portions of their story are absolutely sizzling hot and heart wrenching! It had me crying, laughing, cursing, holding my breath in fear, gasping in awe, and at times, fighting mad! But Oh my, what a love story! Intense, hot, emotional, tender; unfortunately, their love is fraught by Z's demons!

    In addition to Zsadist and Bella’s story, this book is slam full to the brim! There is a heart breaking scene that had me in tears, and I mean crying heartbroken tears! I was even mad at the author! I also learned how much one can hate a lesser! I wanted to pouf him out of their world myself!! And OMGosh, the love I have for Phury, who is Zsadist’s twin brother! The sacrifices he made is a beautiful thing and there is one particular scene that I nearly cried buckets! And what’s up with V and Butch and

    I must read Butch’s story next! And last but in no way least, there is a scene that had me gulping in total, shocked, didn’t see that coming surprise!

    While this was an amazing, intense and emotional read, and one that I loved, I needed more Zsadist and Bella alone time. I felt there just wasn't enough intimacy given to this couple, especially toward the end. Also, while I loved the epilogue, I wished for more.

    Thanks again sweet Karla! It was so much fun sharing our thoughts and feelings along the way:) *Hugs* ♥

    A great big thank you to my dear friends Dhes, Dorsey, Jaynie and Dee who encouraged me to start this series! I am totally hooked and off to Butch's story:)!

    Six weeks has passed since Bella's kidnapping, and Zsadist has become more and more violent. He has only one goal: kill as many lessers as he can, and find out what happened to Bella.

    The Brotherhood is worried about him, and they have no clue why he's taken a personal interest to Bella, but then, it's not like anyone understands him at all.

    When a call comes with information that Bella is still alive, Z almost goes crazy because he has to wait for nightfall to go to her.

    The rescue... Won't talk about that, you have to experience it by yourself :(

    The real story begins there, Z wants Bella badly, but he knows she shouldn't be with him, even though she refuses to leave his side.

    Will he be able to set himself free of his past, with Bella's help?

    Read and see <3

    - Heartbreaking. Just totally is. Even though we see the HEA, Z's past and all he went through... :(((

    But it was so wonderful to watch him heal, get past it, all with Bella's help... Amazing <3

    The rescue scene was one of the most emotional ones for me, and my favorites were when Z was taking care of her <3

    And then the mirror scene with the brothers! Loved it so much!

    Well damn, I pretty much loved the whole book, except the lesser parts!

    - There are flashbacks to Zsadist's and Phury's history in this book, and those scenes are tough and disturbing, when he was a blood/sex slave and when Phury rescued him. Not easy to read, but we learn so much about both of them, and why they're the way they are.

    - There is a lot of John Matthew in this book, we see him adapting to his new life, and living with Tohr and Wellsie :)

    Butch and Marissa are going in circles, but nothing really happening between them.

    We meet Rehvenge, Bella's brother, who will have his own book later :)

    Phury has a very big role here, he's in love with Bella too, so we get to see his jealous and self-sacrificing side.

    Tohrment... My heart goes out to him.

    - Well, you have to know that Z has a lot of baggage, being a sex slave for decades, and it isn't easy seeing him opening up to Bella, trying stuff, and ultimately having sex with her. Not the usual "OMG this is so hot I'm going to combust" type of scenes, just to warn you. But they are amazing, and very emotional! Just seeing him letting go of his fear... Yep, definitely worth it <3 But yeah there'll be the combustible scenes later on ahahah :DDD

    Bella has been held for six weeks by a deranged lesser maniac person, endured lots of horrible stuff, and thought she would die there without anyone knowing what happened to her.

    After she is rescued, she clings to Z and doesn't want to leave him.

    It takes her some time to realise what happened to Z when he was a slave, and she wants to help him get over it.

    As the book goes on, Bella falls in love with Zsadist (of course), and she happens to find herself in a terrible situation where she needs his help badly...

    Bella comes with baggage herself, although, not as serious as Z, but it's still there. The torture and everything she endured while in captivity is something she can't forget, and Z is the only person she trusts enough to be around.

    She is very insecure in herself, after Z constantly pushes her away, thinking there's a problem with her, that he is repulsed by her now. It was very hard to read, I really felt sorry for her :(

    But just love the scene when she

    It was just so sweet because of what Z did <3

    Anyway, she doesn't know exactly what happened with Z, and he doesn't want to tell her, so that leads to a lot of difficult situations when she pushes him too far out of his comfort zone :(((

    But still, it's all worth it when we see the

    Beautiful scenes!

    Zsadist is a killer, emotionless and cold. He doesn't care about anything or anyone, even the Brotherhood doesn't trust him.

    He is scarred, inside and out. He wears piercings and has slave bands tattooed on his neck and arms.

    Not a fuzzy one, that Z.

    It all goes back to when he was being held as a blood slave, and was being sexually used as well. His mistress was a b*tch from hell, and with what he went through... No freaking wonder he turned out that way :(

    He hates sex and anything sexual because it reminds him of that woman, and he thinks himself unclean and unworthy of Bella, even though he is fiercely protective of her, and wants to have her for himself.

    He tries to push her toward Phury, even though it kills him, but he wants her with a male of worth, someone who he could've been.

    Still, we get to see him heal, all thanks to Bella, and the change in him is remarkable <3

    I can't say how much I love Z. He's definitely my favorite brother <3

    He goes through a full transformation here, and it was just beautiful to see.

    First, when he was pining for Bella in her house. He wouldn't call it that way ahahha but it looked like it to me :)

    Poor guy, and then the rescue, even though she was the one who was wronged and endured terrible things, I still felt terrible for Z in that scene :(

    Later on, every protective thing he did concerning Bella had me swooning and sighing and wanting to cry and hug him like crazy <3

    He fought it all the way, pushed Bella away from him almost all the time, even though he terribly wanted to be with her :(

    Like I said before, his biggest problem was him feeling unworthy of Bella, and everything he did was because of it. So, so sad :(((

    But this book really was all about him, how he changed completely, by overcoming his fears and insecurities, and becoming the person who he was supposed to be.

    The ending, with the paper <3

    End the epilogue!!!

    Best! Ever <3

  • Jessica's Totally Over The Top Book Obsession

    First read 2014

    First read 2014

    Reread 3/26/2017

    OMG OMG OMG Can I please give this book more than 5 stars!! I just want to say that Lover Awakened is one of my top 5 favorite books of all times!!! I can't get enough! It's one of those books you read straight through and then when you finish it you wish you could delete it from your head so you can enjoy discovering it all over again. I loved Z so much. And as much as I loved Z I loved Bella too. I don't know how J.R. Ward does it but she somehow writes these books that bring to life this exciting, dark, and sexy world filled with heroes that I fall madly in love with. When you pick up one of the books in this series it looks like a normal book but when you open and read it it wraps around your heart and lives in your mind long after you finish it. This series is just amazing and this book is my favorite of the series!

    My God I ached for Z. Zsadist was so tortured, scarred, totally badass, and sexy as hell. The first time I read this book Z crawled into my heart and he has lived there ever since. He was just such an amazing and deep hero. Something that really made me mad in this book and the two books before this one was the way everyone treated Z. All the Brothers including Z's own twin Phury acted like he was a ruined, nonredeemable, crazy, evil, pos. Everyone always jumped to bad conclusions about him and no one really cared for him. I don't feel Phury really loved him. To Phury Z was just a burden. It pissed me off so bad the way Phury especially treated him. Z was so left out and all alone. All the flash backs into Z's past and reading how he felt about himself damn but my heart just bled for him. I loved Bella because she was strong, brave, loyal, sassy, and she fought for her man. She went through six weeks of hell at the hands of the Lesser David but he didn't break her. I would have loved her alone just for the way she loved Z. She seen his worth and beauty when everyone else treated him like he was a wild animal.

    Together Bella and Z had a beautiful and emotional love story. I loved the way Bella needed only Z. He was her rock, her safety, and her hero! And Bella showed Z that he wasn't dirty or ugly but strong, sexy, and an male of worth. Their love story is why I read romance novels. The powerful connections I feel for them. The way their story makes me feel when I read it. Like they are real. The happiness their book brings me is why I enjoy reading so much. My God I melted when Z and Bella made love. Z discovering the beauty of love making after what he had been through was so moving. They are one of my top 5 favorite couples ever. Though this is Bella and Z's book there was so much going on in this book. Especially with John, Tohr, and Wellsie. I enjoyed all the stuff about John adjusting to his new life, finding out his bloodline, and bonding with Z. But OMFG when

    I was all over the place in this book. But my main feels was love. Love for Z, love for Bella, love for their relationship, love for John, love for Butch just lots of love. I will say that I wish there was less Lesser time in this book. I didn't wanna spend that much time reading about the bad guys I wanted more time with Z and Bella. The End of the book was total icing on my cake. I swooned over the epilogue. This book is love story perfection!

    This is the best of the series. Zsadist is a real tortured hero. What he has been through shatters my heart. And Bella, she is a savior of this broken man. She has fire in her heart, especially when he tries to push her away, she resists. That's why I love her. That's why I love this book so damn much !

    I cried many times while I was reading. Z has a soft heart if I stare hard enough. He think he was broken by his former master, so he doesn't deserve anything.

    J.R. Ward mastered this book immaculately from the start to the end. She slowly built my anticipation for this book in the previous ones. My hope was too high before reading this, and she didn't make me down even a little. Lover Awakened is beyond perfection. It's a masterpiece. It's a jem. It's everyting I could have asked for.

    was the most tortured hero in Romancelandia but, compared to Z's, Sin's life was a merry walk in the park. Z's mind was so twisted that, for a moment, I doubted the possibility of a believable HEA for him. I shouldn't have, though. Can I just say I loved the epilogue? :)

    Bella was everything Z needed. She had been attracted to him since they first met in

    and, for reasons he couldn't understand, he also felt a strong connection to her. When presented with the chance to be with Z, Bella was honest and direct about it - and I congratulated her for it. But then,

    Not what I expected

    but that gave room for the wonderful scene with Z writing her that sigh-worthy note, so I guess I can excuse that.

    Now, Phury... Call me insensitive but, at this point, I almost despise him. I was probably supposed to embrace him as a larger-than-life, altruistic man/vampire, but he just came across as a pathetic loser - not to mention, drug addict - to me. Get a life, my brother!

    And Tohr... Why, oh why did Ms. Ward feel the need to do that to him? Didn't we have enough wild and wrecked Brothers? Couldn't we have

    "normal" guy among them? Based on some comments I'd heard before reading this book, I knew

    but that didn't make me less unhappy when the time came.

    As it happened in the previous book,

    , I didn't care for the scenes with the

    in this book either and I wish Ms. Ward stopped giving them so much "screen time". I know I don't stand a chance of seeing this happening, so I guess this series will never get a 5-star rating for me. Oh well, it isn't like that would make any difference, because these books have already a gazillion rabid fans and I won't be missed, LOL.

    Oh. My. God.

    I'm not even sure I can convey the complete absurdity of this book. Any description I try to make is typically interrupted by my own peals of laughter at the general ridiculousness and/or groans of immense pain.

    The hero, Zsadist-- yes, he is actually named that-- is a self-proclaimed misogynist. (Yayz!) Profoundly psychologically damaged after several years of torture, abuse and slavery at the hands of an evil female vampire, he spends most of his time moping about, feeling angry,

    I'm not even sure I can convey the complete absurdity of this book. Any description I try to make is typically interrupted by my own peals of laughter at the general ridiculousness and/or groans of immense pain.

    The hero, Zsadist-- yes, he is actually named that-- is a self-proclaimed misogynist. (Yayz!) Profoundly psychologically damaged after several years of torture, abuse and slavery at the hands of an evil female vampire, he spends most of his time moping about, feeling angry, and hating his gignormous penis for causing all this trouble. He likes to beat himself to get off, but then he hates himself for getting off. Then he falls in love with Bella and moans a lot about his evil sperm, how dirty he is, and blah blah blah. Meanwhile, our heroine stands placidly by (of course), feels compelled to love him despite his faults (of course), and gradually tames the beast within-- after several rounds of rather rough sex (of course). We also get some lovely flashbacks to Zsadist being tortured and abused (of course).

    Seriously, this reads like the worst of fan fiction AUs brought together. The other male leads have names like Vishous, Phury and Rhage and this is not supposed to be take as comedy and/or irony??? Also, the soliloquies where Zsadist is hating on his penis are pretty amazing.

    Also, the universe! ZOMG, it is so freaking complicated. Vampires! Vampire slayers! Vampire protectors! Vampire drug addicts! Seriously, there are guide books sold to help readers understand this universe! Clearly, this is the romance industry's version of Anne Rice and Laurel K. Hamilton. Clearly it has been very successful as a crossover money maker. But really, really: W.O.W.
