Lover Mine by J.R. Ward
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The story of Xhex and John Matthew.
Whoa. OK, so there is ALOT that goes on in this book. Dang. Some of it, I think, is setup for future books and not just the next one that focuses on Payne.
I really love the character of Xhex - and the only part that I thought was a little lacking was in her backstory. I'm hoping that will come out in a later book or books.
But what I love, love, loved about this one - the possibilities of a relationship between Qhuinn and Blay. I've been hoping for that since those characters were introduced....but I just didn't see it happening. But now....the beginnings are there.
