Lover Unleashed (Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 9) - J.R. Ward Giving Payne her own book was a real waste IMO. She and Manny were the low point whereas Jane and V could have had more. Jane and V almost falling apart broke my heart. He was almost as bad as Phury. JR writes Butch and V so well, sometimes I ship them instead of with their women lol. Oh, what is this Manny/Butch bs? I mean comeon! I now they had to include him somehow but another long lost sibling? Bah.
