Title: Lover Avenged
Series: Black Dagger Brotherhood, #7
Author: J.R. Ward
Rating: 4 Shooting Stars

Caldwell, NY, has long been the battleground for the battleground for the vampires and their enemies, the Lessening Society. 

 It’s also where Rehvenge has staked out his turf as a drug lord and notorious nightclub that caters to the rich and heavily armed. His shadowy reputation is exactly why he’s approached to kill Wrath, the Blind King, and leader of the Brotherhood. 

 Rehvenge has always kept his distance from the Brotherhood, even though his sister is married to a member. Because he’s a sympath, his identity is a deadly secret- the revelation of which will result in his banishment to a colony for sociopaths. 

 And as plots within and outside the Brotherhood take their toll against Rehvenge, he turns to the only source of light in a darkening world - Elhena, a vampire untouched by the corruption that has its hold on him- and the only thing standing between him and eternal destruction.

The 7th book in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series is about Rehvenge. He's a drug dealing pimp who is only half vampire. He has a sister who is married to one of the "Brothers." So now he has some loyalty to them. And when a time comes for him to help them out he takes that chance. While he's trying to keep his secret a secret, he ends up having a relationship with a nurse from the clinic, Ehlena. 

 I have to say this book had a whole lot going on it. There was a lot with the lessers. Then with Rhev and his woman. Not to mention we see a lot of Wrath too. 

There were a lot of things that didn't make much sense to me though and it bothered me through out the whole book... 

 Some things are: 
1) Rehv having to a be a "whore" for that horrible woman. I don't get why he didn't just kill. It seemed he probably would have gotten away with it. 

 2) The distance between Wrath, and Beth. That didn't make sense either. Especially the part about them not being intimate together for a few months. That doesn't sound like them at all, and it sort of bugged me. 

 3) The fact that Ehlena turned her back on Rehv at one time. I lost a little respect for her, but she redeemed herself in the end. 

 4) I hated the way Xhex and John hook up. I felt like they both treated the other badly for no good reason, and it really sucked. 

 The best part of the book was the ending. I loved how they all stood together for Rehv. I love seeing them have somewhat of a happily ever after. However, I am wondering what's going to happen next.
