Title: Lover At Last
Series: Black Dagger Brotherhood, #11
Author: J.R Ward
Rating: 3 Shooting Stars

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.

This book begins with Layla maybe being pregnant with Qhuinn's child, and Blay is in a relationship with Qhuinn's cousin. Things appear to be going good for both of these guys on the outside, not so much on the inside though. As things progress with Layla, Qhuinn keeps putting his life on the line to save the "Brothers" and Blay is in a loveless relationship with Sax. He feels like he will never be with Qhuinn, and they seem to have drifted apart. Not only do they have this problem, but Layla seems to have found a male she wants, but can not have either. Then there are others out to overthrow the king... 

 I have to say I liked this book, but it wasn't all that great. I found a lot of people's point of view were boring, and semi uneventful. I was however very pleased with how much Layla changed. By the end of the book I seriously loved her, and felt a little bit bad for her. Qhuinn and Blay on the other hand drive me nuts.. Until the very end. At the end I had a major smile on my face, other than that they both frustrated me with how stubborn they were being. Yeesh, I really wanted to hit them over the head at times. Now I'm ever more excited for the next book to come out.
