Determined to reverse a tragedy, she goes where mortals should fear to tread- and comes face to face with the Brotherhood's new enemy.

Knowing they will part, the two band together to fight against what Mae unknowingly unleashed- as the Brotherhood closes in to reclaim one of their damned, and the evil vows to destroy them all...
~ Maria’s Review ~
Author JR Ward continues to amaze me with the world building and continuity in the Black Dagger Brotherhood, keeping it one of my all time favorite series.
Lover Unveiled introduces us to Sahvage, a strong and powerful male with a traumatic past he keeps hidden. He manages to keep a low profile and stick to himself until he meets Mae.
Mae is a female desperate to find the answer to her prayers. While looking, she finds herself at an underground MMA fight. And in Sahvage’s orbit. So it begins. However, their story isn’t the only thing going on in this book. I did enjoy their journey. But I didn’t love Mae. She could get quite annoying. Sahvage, though I did love and he is a great addition to the BDB.
As Ms. Ward is famous for, her books have so much going on that if you blink, you could miss something very important. We get to know Balthazar better. We also meet some new characters that are key to the development of this storyline and set up possible future storylines, as well.
I would be remiss if I did not mention the new evil that definitely gives the Omega and Lessening Society a run for their money, Devina. I loved hating her in the Fallen Angels series and she fits right in in Caldwell.
Lover Unveiled is filled with mystery, secrets, sarcastic wit, steam and love. Caldwell and the BDB are my favorite escape. A great addition to the series and I cannot wait for more!!!
