Title: Lover At Last (Black Dagger Brotherhood #11)
Author: J.R. Ward
Release Date: March 26th 2013

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....

Blay, after years of unrequited love, has moved on from his feelings for Qhuinn. And it’s about time: The male has found his perfect match in a Chosen female, and they are going to have a young—just as Qhuinn has always wanted for himself. It’s hard to see the new couple together, but building your life around a pipe dream is just a heartbreak waiting to happen. As he’s learned firsthand.

Fate seems to have taken these vampire soldiers in different directions... but as the battle over the race’s throne intensifies, and new players on the scene in Caldwell create mortal danger for the Brotherhood, Qhuinn finally learns the true definition of courage, and two hearts who are meant to be together... finally become one

My Thoughts

I've been putting off writing this review.
I was so frustrated by the book, that its taken me over a month to finally have anything to say about it!
So I'm not going to even bother with a 'proper' review for this BDB installment except to say finally...

Finally Qhuinn and Blay get their HEA!

However, it was constantly being interrupted by couple after couple, villain after hero - it has POV's up the wazoo and that pissed me off!

I'd just being getting into a really great Qhuay moment and then it would meander off to someone else, which tbh, I mostly skimmed over!

Yes, I know there are so many characters now and we all want to keep up with who's doing what and setting the scene for the next big 'reveal' but ffs, this could have been epic!! - the constant interruptions made it... frustratingly long-winded with lots of annoyed eye-rolling!!

Qhuinn and Blay 5 stars, the rest 2 stars, overall read 3 stars :]
