Lover At Last (Black Dagger Brotherhood #11) by J.R. Ward

Lover At Last (Black Dagger Brotherhood #11) by J.R. Ward
This is an adult paranormal romance/urban fantasy novel (Rated NC-17)
(Four Huge Hearts)
Book Summary
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 Review

Please note, I listened to this one. So if I botched the spellings, that’s why.
I waited on this series. And for the most part I was pleased. I have to say it was an interesting story. My problem largely lay in the misunderstanding as basis for conflict which seems to be a running theme. I barely could get through Rhages book because of it. Anyway, at least they didn’t wait to the end to say what the meant. Although neither were listening. L
And I really hate when a book gives you a HEA in the last pages and we get nothing of the couples happy togetherness.
There was a lot of set up for future books. And I have to say it annoyed me in the beginning. I just wasn’t interested in anyone other than Qhuinn  and Blay. Well, maybe Layla story. But by the end, I’m eager to see how these stories will play out.
I will say that I believe that....
Tres story will be much like Phurry.
Xcor story will be much like Zhadist.
The drug dealer guy (sorry, I listened. I don’t have all their names) his story will be much like Revenge. And I say to myself, will she think of something else??
So, I give it four stars. It should probably be 3.5, but I give her credit for trying to give us what we wanted.
Audio Review
Jim Frangione did an good job. He kept with the characters voices for the most part. However, there were times I had trouble differentiating between Qhuinn and Blay, the two main characters. That can be a problem. But overall, I enjoyed.
