Lover Enshrined part one In this frighteningly addictive paranormal romance saga there's a war raging between vampires and their slayers Here are the stories of a secret band of brothers like no other—six vampire warriors defenders of their race And now a dutiful twin must choose between two lives Fiercely loyal to the Black Dagger Brotherhood Phury has sacrificed himself for the good of the race becoming the male responsible for keeping the Brotherhood's bloodlines alive As Primale of the Chosen he is obligated to father the sons and daughters who will ensure that the traditions of the race survive and that there are warriors to fight those who want all vampires extinguished As his first mate the Chosen Cormia wants to win not only his body but his heart for herself She is drawn to the noble responsibility behind the emotionally scarred male But Phury has never allowed himself to know pleasure or joy As the war with the Lessening Society grows grim tragedy looms over the Brotherhood's mansion and Phury must decide between duty and love Phury and CormiaI really really like Phury When I was reading his book I just wanted to cuddle him and sueeze him and tell him not to be sad and everything will be all right He has woken up my maternal instinct this boyIn this book Phury is lost somewhere in the cuckoo land living as a cloud cuckoo lander instead of being a fierce warrior and fearsome brother And he talks to a wizard with a dark voice in his head Endless discussions arguments advices between Phury and his wizard who thought that he had left but he was always thereYes Phury takes drugs nonstop and accurately he prefers his red smoke that smells like coffee and chocolate His chosen mate Cormia is somewhere in the next room and although they need to start producing babies he does not feel like it He would prefer Bella of course but she chose his twin brother Zsadist has ugly scars on his face and slave bands on his hands and Phury is definitely handsome than him and with cooler hair But still Bella likes better him than PhuryBecause of Zsadist his right leg has no foot or calf And it really wouldn’t bother him it was his choice after all to go and save his brother but he just wants an acknowledgment of his sacrifice Maybe a simple ‘thank you’ would be enough Instead he was accused that he has a “Good Samaritan complex” So it is better to talk to his wizard and then smoke some Well if Phury wanted respect he was looking at the wrong girl The thing about Phury is he’ll always put others before himself Always It’s his natureI know That’s why I admire him so Where I am from Cormia struggled to find the words To the Chosen selflessness is the greatest of all values We serve the race and the Scribe Virgin and in doing so we joyfully put the whole before ourselves It is the highest order of virtue to sacrifice yourself to the greater good to that which is of importance than the self The Primale does that I believe that is Is That is why I respect him so Cormia is bored Her job is to be Primate’s baby making vessel Instead she is forgotten in her room and Phury does not care about her existence What can a girl do to pass the time Complex structures made of toothpicks and peas Why not No Cormia does not take drugs But maybe it is a good idea to go for a swim at the pool or watch ‘Dirty Dancing’ with John because she will definitely snapAnd my favorite scene is when Phury becomes Neanderthal Cormia was rising from the pool her resplendent female form dripping with water while three newly transitioned males stood about ten feet from her with their tongues hanging down to their navelsOh hell noThe bonded male in him came out like a beast breaking free of the lies he’d fed himself about how he felt roaring out of the cave of his heart stripping him of everything that was civilizedAll he knew was that his female was standing naked and being coveted by othersThat was all that matteredBefore he was aware of what he was doing Phury let out a growl that broke through the air like a crack of thunder John Matthew’s and his buddies’ eyes shot his way and then the three of them moved back as one Big time Like the pool had caught fireCormia on the other hand didn’t look in his direction She didn’t scramble to cover up eitherInstead she deliberately picked up her robe and slid it slowly onto her shoulders all latent defianceWhich powered him up like nothing else Come into the house he demanded of her NowAs she glanced at him her voice was as level as her eyes And if I choose not toI will put you over my shoulder and carry you inside Bye bye wizard Finally 25 Really don't care for Phury Stars SpoilersFirst read 2014Reread 412017Oh God where do I start with the hot mess that is Phury This book is the one I like the least of all the books in this series and that's because I really don't care for Phury Let me just say that I like Cormia but I don't really understand how she and Phury fell in love He totally ignored her for like 6 months When did they spend enough time together to fall in love Phury is a total drug addict for 85% of the book He spends almost the whole book doing drugs buying drugs and talking to an imaginary voice in his head that he called the wizard And us readers had to deal with The wizards constant stupid boring ass chatter for like 90% of the book Was JR Ward watching the Flintstones when she wrote this book because the wizard was just like the great gazoo and drove me bat shit crazy Phury was so annoying to me He was always playing the victim feeling sorry for himself and whining about how bad his life was how much he failed everyone but instead of getting off his stupid ass and doing something about it he just got high Z said it best when he told him “For fuck's sake get off the cross Someone else needs the wood” Cormia was likable but not real deep as a chosen she doesn't really have any personality It was cute when she would learn something new since she was kinda like a newborn with no knowledge of the world around her But it was sad that everything she would newly discover she did it with John Matthew because she was completely abandoned by Phury He was getting high while she was going outside for the first time running in grass for the first time watching tv a movie eating MMs etc Which just made me dislike Phury He should have been there I feel like Phury and Cormia didn't really have a relationship And what little bit of one they started to have Phury ruined by casting her aside as first mate and trying to take another I don't care that he didn't end up sleeping with anyone but Cormia He hurt her and rejected her and it pissed me off Yes he does redeem himself a little at the end but it was just too late for me I was glad the chosen were freed and with them V's twin sister I also really loved all the parts with John Matthew and Xhex They have such strong chemistry I also melted when Blay and huinn had their first kiss Little Nalla was born at the end of this book and I love Z as a father I love Z period Overall it was an okay read but all the stars are for everyone but Phury If I was rating this book on Phury and Cormia alone I would have gave this book 1 stars Thank God there was other story lines going on that saved this book for me Below I leave my favorite uote from the bookI want to fuck you he mouthed not caring that he was making a fool out of himself Do you Clearly she read lips Either that or cocks because God knew his had its hand raised and waving in his jeans Yeah I do Lot of women in this club Only one you I think you'd be better off with them And I think you'd be better off with me John Matthew and Xhex I was so excited when Phury's book came out He was the only man I liked in Black Dagger Brotherhood I thought he was different in a lot of ways from the other guys Stronger and reliable My type of hero I bought the book and planned to love “Lover Enshrined” and Phury even Boy was I wrong How many times did we had to see how tormented this guy was How many times did we had to know that he had emotional issues that go way back to the century he was born in How many times did he had to go into a pity fest about himself How many characters can I hate from this book Answer TOO MANY TIMES AND I HATED ALL OF 'EMI have a horrible past so feel free to pity me and tell me how many times I screwed up as I smoke this joint Kick me in the ass while you're at it too I'd appreciate that Thanks PhuryYeah I like to kick you a million times Phury and believe me it wouldn’t be out of love I understand that it's not Phury's fault I disliked him so much in his own book I blame the author Ward took a perfectly good man and turns him into an emo self destructive pot head machine that had no personality or characteristics I could come to likeHow about the heroine Well let me see WHAT HEROINE Cormia the Chosen one wasn't even worth being a heroine or even be call a main character I mean what the hell What kind of heroine was she in this freaking book We knew nothing about her except she's the one to bear Phury's baby has no backbone and umhell we know about the drugs Phury used than Cormia and that is sad I liked her from what I read in the other book but in her own book Ward made her seem like she was a back up character No personality no dreams no power no dialog no nothing She could had been a cardboard who could talk and still wouldn’t be interesting“Lover Enshrined” should had been called “Guess How Many Plotlines I Can Stick Into This Book” I couldn’t follow any of the plotlines at all I gave up by the end of the third chapter The only plotline I was interested in was Phury and Cormia’s “love” story if you can call it one and even that wasn’t enough to keep me drawn in It was rushed and by the time you finish it—or try to finish it—you wonder if maybe you missed something along the way Maybe you missed the TWENTY chapters of how Phury and Cormia fell in love Maybe you missed HOW Phury kicked the Brotherhoods’ ass and moved on with his life Maybe you missed Cormia STANDING UP for herself Maybe you missed out on WHO the hell the real villians were Maybe you missed Cormia ACTUALLY being a useful character Maybe you missed Phury acting like a TRUE hero that he was supposed to be No wait You didn’t miss any of that because THEY NEVER HAPPENEDSkip this book It’s a mess and it’s proud to drag you along through the stupidity and confusion if you allowed it to “You tell the others I was not worthy of her” As the Directrix’s mouth fell open he pointed his finger at her “That’s a goddamned order You tell them she is too good for me I want her elevated to a special rank I want her fucking enshrined do you understand me You do right by her or I’ll bust this place into ruins” I have to say that these 4 stars go to the BDB world and stories revolving around all the other characters I enjoyed the book even though I wasn't thrilled with the MCs and in this case YAY for JR Ward and her inserting as many characters as possible in her books D The storyAfter accepting the role as Primale of the vampire race Phury brings Cormia his First Mate to the BDB mansion without consummating the union which means he still hasn't accepted all the other forty Chosen waiting for him to impregnate them Yep I just said that ahahahhah D He is still in love with Bella and is easing his suffering with red smoke and drugs which is getting worse by the dayHis drug addiction is making him think of nothing else but his next fix and his obligations as Primale and one of the Brothers are in second placeHis other favorite pass time is torturing lessers and the Brothers are worried about him which makes Wrath take drastic measures to force Phury to wake up and see where his life is headingCormia has adapted to her new life with the Brotherhood even though she wants the closeness Phury isn't giving her She's in love with him but knows he still loves BellaTorn between wanting him for herself and her duty to all the Chosen she will have to make a decision fight for Phury or return to the Scribe Virgin and let another take her placeThe story Well the MCs don't really have that big of a role here If those two were in the book I'd probably hate itOn the other hand if the author made the characters a bit different without the damned Wizard and they had time in the book I might have loved it Who knows but as it is I was most looking forward to reading absolutely everyone else in the book There really isn't a big storyline here mostly Phury dealing with the drug thing his inner battles and the other characters dealing with a shift in the Lesser Society a new bad guy gaspThe bad guys Lessers Again yawnThose morons get on my nerves like crazy I really can't stand themLash OMG The most irritating character ever to be created EVER I want to kill him Then revive him Then torture him a bit Then kill him Then do it all over again OMG rant overThe characters Well first there is Rhevenge He has a big role here well 'cause his book is next We get to see exactly what is the deal with his blackmailer and it's some twisted sht I tell you Terrible I hate it all I mean I love Rhev but all that's going on Jeez Very disturbingTohrment finally Won't go any into detail so I don't spoil it for you Lassiter new character I love that guy LOVE and I somehow totally forgot that he knows everyone already D JohnXhex D In my first read of the series I didn't really care one way or another about both of them but now DDD I can't wait to get to their book Next time say my name ahahahhahaha Love ithuinnBlaylock after the attack in the bathroom shock everything changes between the three friends and we find out about each of them the family background and stuff And finally FINALLY we get a few scenes with B 3 Highlight of the book The feel of the book Somehow this feels like a transition book for me It has huge parts in it just for the characters for the following books their storylines have started here already and the new grand bad guy is made here too plus there are loads of other characters introducedSo yeah this is like a filler book stuffed with loads of characters but without anything major happeningMaybe it's just me I don't know It was hard to know what was worse him being with her and all her sisters or him being with none of them because his heart was held by another Cormia is one of the Chosen she is to be the Primale's First Mate well when he gets around to having sex with herShe hasn't known anything beyond the Sanctuary and it takes her a while to adapt to her new lifeShe is in love with Phury even though he's still in love with BellaEventually they start getting closer but Phury just makes decisions that drive them apart He thought of her brushing out his hair and realized with a shock that she had actually managed to calm him in those moments—and not just through the strokes of the brush either Her very presence eased him from her jasmine scent to the way she moved so fluidly to the soft sound of her voice Well Cormia was OK definitely the better half of the couple DI liked her but didn't love her She had potential but not enough page time and definitely not a good combo with Phury's character being whackedOh well There were a few good scenes with her when she went exploring and watching Dirty Dancing with John D That was funny Phury stepped up close to her Her body was roaring with so much heat he could feel it against his own skin and her jasmine scent was as thick as his bloodHe flashed her his fangs and hissed like a cat “We’re going to my room”“But I have no reason to go to your bedroom”“Yes You do” Phury is now a Primale and is obligated to revive the vampire raceHe took the job to save his friend but didn't really TAKE the job he doesn't want to do it and is dragging it all along pushing it back so he doesn't have to think about itHe brought Cormia to the Mansion but doesn't intend to sleep with her and seal the deal that way He's ignoring Wrath and direct orders he's doing drugs and butchering lessers like a maniacHe has a voice inside his head The Wizard who is basically a big suicide mission waiting to happenIt takes a whole lot of sht to happen for him to pull his head out of his a pardon my expression Okay Fine Whatever she wanted Hell at this point she could have told his heart not to beat and the thing would have complied with the order uite cheerfully She had become his control tower his body’s master and anything she told him to do or say or get for her he would No uestions asked No care of the means I think I would've really liked Phury if it wasn't for the Wizard Honestly I don't remember ever hating an imaginary character so much No actually it isn't hate it's just irritation It went so much that Phury started to get on my nerves too along with the damn WizardSuch a shame His relationship with Cormia was weird too at one point he's madly in love with Bella but a few days later he realises he's bonding with Cormia Based on what It's not like they spent any time together there were one or two almost sex scenes and that's it I know most books here have that insta love thing but usually it's believable Or maybe it's just me again I don't know but I wish they got page time with a REAL story and a REAL romancefalling in love thingThrough most of the book Phury felt sorry for himself and doing drugs Well that one sentence could just describe him totally as a character BUT I am very happy with how it all turned out him being a Primale and that decision at the end regarding it all Very very great a big applause for him My favorite uotes from other characters No this couldn’t be the Fade The aches and pains in his body and the screaming in his head were too much like what he felt on EarthExcept what about the sun He was bathed in its warm glow and yet he breathedMan if all that vampire no daylight shit was a lie the race was an idiot as a whole “What is wrong with you” he whispered “that you care so much about me”Blay’s sad smile added about a million years to his age lining his face with the kind of knowledge that came only after life kicked you in the nuts a number of times “What is wrong with you that you can’t see why I would” “One thing though” huinn murmured“What”The voice that came out of his throat was unlike anything he’d ever heard from himself before “If any guy breaks your heart or treats you like shit I will bust him apart with my bare hands and leave his broken bloody body for the sun” They pulled apart looked into each other’s eyes and something shifted In the silence of the whole training center in the vast privacy of the moment something changed“Just once” Blay said softly “Do it just once So I’ll know what it’s like” “Getting him out didn’t save him” Zsadist’s eyes drifted over “That’s the point Phury There isn’t any saving him There isn’t any saving me I know that’s what you keep waiting for living for But it’s never going to happen Look I can’t thank you because as much as I love Bella and my life and where I am now I still go back there I can’t help it I still live it every day” After a moment Wrath turned to John “This is Lassiter the fallen angel One of the last times he was on earth there was a plague in central Europe—”“Okay that was so not my fault—”“—that wiped out two thirds of the human population”“I’d like to remind you that you don’t like humans”“They smell bad when they’re dead”“All you mortal types do” The glowing man laughed “Well if it isn’t good King Wrath and his band of merry merry happy happy I swear you boys should do kiddie shows you’re so fucking cheery”“Great” Rhage muttered “his sense of humor’s still intact”Vishous exhaled “Maybe I can try to beat it out of him”“Use his own arm to do it if you can—”Wrath glared at the two of them who shot him back a pair of who us stares This book could've been better you feel me
