Lover Avenged (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #7) by J.R. Ward

Lover Avenged (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #7)

Rehvenge has always kept his distance from the Brotherhood—even though his sister is married to a member, for he harbors a deadly secret that could make him a huge liability in their war against the lessers. As plots within and outside of the Brotherhood threaten to reveal the truth about Rehvenge, he turns to the only source of light in his darkening world, Ehlena, a vampire untouched by the corruption that has its hold on him—and the only t...

Reviews Lover Avenged (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #7)

  • Blacky *Romance Addict*
    “It’s simple. I don’t think you should date anyone.” Rehv moved in even closer, until he could see the flecks of gold in her eyes. “But I’m not just anyone.” Wow! I think I've found my new favorite BDB book!!!!! (Besides Z's, he will ALWAYS be #1)My first read was great, I loved it, but it didn't stand out from the others. On my second read... Amazing!! One of my favorite books EVER, not just the BDB! It's totally surprising consid...

    4 Sin Eater StarsFirst read 2014Reread April 3 2017“Life is such a glorious trauma, is it not?”-Wrath SpoilersLover Avenged is the 7th book in the BDB series and it was a good read with tons going on. I'm going to keep this review short and sweet so I can get to my John Matthews' book right away. Rehvenge and Ehlena were both cute and likable. I loved how playful, vulnerable, and tender Rehv was with Ehlena. Ehlena was sweet but she did make...

    Excellent, just excellent. JR Ward is back with a vengeance! For anyone who was disappointed with the previous two books in the BDB series, I urge you not to give up on it--“Lover Avenged” is every bit as good a book as the first four of the series. It’s got everything that you could want, starting with an outstanding hero and heroine in nightclub owner/ drug lord Rehvenge and nurse Ehlena. It’s a testimony to the author’s writing skill...
  •  Danielle The Book Huntress (Back to the Books)
    I don't even know where to begin with this review. Like so many of Ward's other books, this book consumed my thoughts. Even when I wasn't reading it, I was pondering the interactions between the characters, hoping for the best, and dreading the worst that I felt was coming. I don't know how the WARDen does it, but my love for this series and her writing grows even more all-consuming with each book. I do know that she understands the power of evok...

    4.25/5Well, this was much better than the previous book.Honestly, I went into this book half expected it to be disappointing, considering I wasn't happy with Lover Enshrined. But I needed to read this one, just couldn't resist Rehvenge’s story. He caught my attention since book 3 so it was impossible to ignore his story. And I can tell you now, when I finished reading Lover Avenged, it wasn’t what I expected and it didn’t disappoint either...

    “You know,” he said, “this is why I love you so much.”Her tone was heartbreakingly warm. “What do you mean?”“You don’t ask me to go inside because it’s cold. You just want to make it easier for me to be where I want to stand.” Frankly, I read this book without a break. Rehv and Elena's story was more than I had expected even though I wasn't into his character that much from the previous books. Rehv have been a detached charac...

    Rehvenge or Rehv and Ehlena “Ehlena?”“Yeah?”“Don’t take this the wrong way.”She drew in a deep breath and he saw her bare shoulders tighten. “Okay. I’ll try not to.”“You keep showing up here? Being who you are?” There was a pause. “I’m going to fall in love with you. Ehlena is a sweet, humble nurse who lives with her old and unable to help himself father. She is a good nurse dedicated to her job at Haver’s clinic a...

    “Even the powerful needed protection sometimes.” Lover Avenged is one of my favorite installments of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. It is the love story ofRehvenge and Ehlena.Rehv's characteris so special and extravagant. Despite his tough and merciless façade, he is self-devoted and selfless for those who he loves. I really enjoyed the reveal of his personality.Ehlenais perfect for him: she is honest, open-minded, clear-sighted, and ...

    This series keeps getting harder and harder to review. Each book covers so much information across so many characters that I can't possibly begin to touch on everything. So I am going to do something I don't normally do... I am going to do gif reactions. If you want me to elaborate anything, just drop me a comment. Wrath -Rehv -Ehlena-Xhex -Xhex and John -John-Beth -Rehv and Ehlena -Wrath and Beth -Rehv and Bella - Wrath and PayneEnding - 4 STARS...

    5 Stars!!!!! Let’s meet Rehv... Your friendly neighborhood drug lord, pimp, and enforcer. Rehvenge is one awesome male in this series. He is not a member of the Brotherhood. But he works with them. His sister Bella is mated to the brother Zsadist. And the brothers know his secret. Rehv is half sympath, along with Xhex. Technically speaking, he should be in a colony up north with the other sympaths, but his secret is safe... for now. He makes s...
  • Annie (Under the Covers Book Blog)
    Damn, the BDB series just keeps getting better and better. I really liked Ehlena and Rehv in this book. They are absolutely perfect for one another. I also loved that we got to see a bit more of Wrath and Beth. And of course, Xhex and John, although it is quite sad what happens to them in the book. The plot again is crazy! There are so many twists and turns that I swear my head would fall off. The writing is incredible. Ward makes me so envious! ...
  • UniquelyMoi ~ BlithelyBookish
    This was, in my opinion, the best of the series, and I now adore Rehvenge, whereas before I really didn't like him at all. That's the beauty of the WARDen's writing.She's really outdone herself!My birthday gift to myself was an autographed copy of this book. It came wrapped in birthday paper, has a birthday wish from the WARDen, and I LOVE IT!

    5 REHVENGE STARS.What this thirteen hour story didn't fit is not worth thinking about. I'm rammed to the brim with all things Black Dagger and that's the way I like it. I can't help but fall in love with each book in the series, and each time I start a new page, chapter or book I wonder if I'll ever tire of this extraordinary paranormal fix and the answer is a huge resounding NO. What's it all about? ...The start of 'Lover Avenged' brings us righ...

  • Maya
    I wasn't expecting that much emotion from this story, honestly. I skipped two books and went straight into reading this one, since I got a steal for this hardcover and I don't really regret it, nope. At times I was slightly confused but at the end I caught up on the main things.I liked that we got to see more Wrath and Bella again but they sure had their own problems. But nothing like Rehvenge's problems. Man, that poor man. Reading about his pas...

    "THE KING MUST DIE"And with these four words so begins J.R Wards 7th instalment of the Black Dagger Brotherhood. I couldn't wait to read LOVER AVENGED and at 642 pages Ward does not disappoint. She has encompassed it all; Surprises galore, evolving storylines, several POV's, plot-twists, humour, action, romance and of course heartbreak. I won't give away too much here, I'll just give you a brief rundown of all the goodies involved in this intrica...

    After being a tiny bit disappointed by Book 6 I was very happy that this one was back up to standard! I have never been a great fan of Rehvenge but he turned into a much nicer character once under the influence of his Ehlena and I enjoyed their whole story. The side stories were the best though and the humour. I love the banter between the brothers and I really like Lassiter. I hope we hear a lot more of him in the future!As usual the book was a ...

    DRUMROLL PLEASE........its time for some Rehvenge EPIC EPIC EPIC SWOON !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Mohawk madness......need.want.gotta.have.more....Rehv- or the Reverend, as the human clientele called him- was a drug lord and pimp who didn't give a shit about the vast majority of people. Which meant he was capable of, and frequently did, anything the fuck he wanted to. So the guy who cared about very little was in charge of a hell of a lot.[image error]Rehv...

    3.5 StarsI won’t recap the story, since I am probably writing review number 1,000 for this book. Instead I will just share my thoughts and feelings.I have been looking forward to Rehv’s story, I have always been intrigued by him. I think that is why I might have been more disappointed then the average reader. As always I love reading about the Brotherhood and their spouses. I especially loved John’s story. To me John stole the show…I was ...

    Rehvenge's Story brings back the hard-hitting action and suspense we've come to expect from this series!Beware of Spoilers if you haven't read the first 6 books in the series... ...every once in a while, from out of the blue, someone reaches the quiet place where you spend your private time and changes the way you see yourself... I'm cautiously optimistic... I feel like we've reached a turning point with this installment, and I sincerely hope...
  • Bev
    There was a lot going on in this one, a LOT! I'm finding that as the series grows the poor characters the book is supposed to be about seem to be getting less and less page time, to the point of getting totally swallowed up and lost in everyone else's dramas. That said, the little I did get of Rehv and Elehna together I loved, he needed her quiet strength and support. Ward certainly gives her characters the perfect mates.
  • Ꮗ€♫◗☿ ❤️ ❤️
    Rehvenge is so Boss & Lash is a Villain you love to hate!I am loving this series more with each book I read. All the characters feel more like Family. Even Lash who I really hated at first when he was just a trainee and was mean to John all the time. Now that he is the Omega’s son and an all powerful Lesser villain, he is pretty awesome. You just have to love how good he is at being bad. He is so much smarter than Mr. X, and Mr. O were. Plus he...
  • Susana
    AVISO: ESTE LIVRO TEM A PIOR TRADUÇÃO QUE EU ALGUMA VEZ TIVE A INFELICIDADE DE LER!The original story _in english_ is outstanding. The characters as always, are bigger than life, and the plot is amazingly complex and dangerously addictive.The author has the ability of connecting every single point in the story, leaving no lose ends. There's action, romance, and drama. There's stories, and moments in it, so heartbreaking, that they almost make a...
  • Amy | Foxy Blogs
    Why do these books have to be so long?! I have a short attention span so staying focused for 500+ pages and keeping a bunch of different story lines straight pushes me each time I read one of these books. I'm still not a fan of the lessers and tend to skim their parts unless they are messing with the brothers. Rehv & Ehlena were the main love story in this one. "Why did you come? -Rehv"I followed my heart." -EhlenaBut JM and Xhex caught my eye i...

    Yes, on a BDB tour again!! i just can't help myself...keep reading these books over and over again.I have to admit that I was not that crazy about Rhevenge the first time I read this book but each time I reread it, the more I like him. He's so much more than the "gangster" facade....he's totally devoted to his family and the people he loves and will do anything to protect them, even giving up his life for them. Ehlena is a perfect "foil" for him....
  • Crystal~BIG book addict~
    4.5 I love Rehvenge Stars!!Where to start.....Rehv I loved Rehv's story. It was so heartbreaking to see what he has been subjected to over the years with the Princess blackmailing him and what he has been forced to endure to protect who he and Xhex are. After he meets Ehlena, he wants nothing more than to have as much of a normal life as a Symphath can with anyone. He doesn't believe that he is good enough for her though.Ehlena has always found R...

    5+ stars – Vampire RomanceWOW...just...WOW! J. R. Ward is back with a vengeance (no pun intended).I had every intention of being monetarily responsible and waiting for the paperback release, but I figured it would be like when I got behind on the TV show LOST and had to dodge all the water cooler and break room conversations every Thursday by covering my ears and singing la-la-la while getting my morning coffee in an attempt to avoid unwanted s...

    4/5 stars "You keep showing up here? Being who you are?" There was a pause. "I'm going to fall in love with you." This was amazing! This series is the gift that keeps on giving and I am well and truly hooked! Lover Avenged didn't just give us the angst, heartache and love from one relationship...but THREE. I fell in love with the main characters but I also grew to love old character as they went through new heartbreaking experiences. This book ha...
