J.R. Ward - Lover Revealed

Black Dagger Brotherhood:

Book 4:
Lover Revealed: Butch aka. Dhestroyer and Marrisa  

Butch has always been an outside observer of life; never truly fitting in anywhere.  He is a human living among vampires because he knows too much.  His own family wants nothing to do with him, he was kicked off the police force and his best and only friends are vampires from the Brotherhood who won’t let him fight alongside them. He knows his life is crap but yet he still yearns for Marrisa a vampire of the aristocratic class and too good for him!  Marrisa feels that she is defective, why else does no man want her; why else would she be shunned from her own class of vampires. Even her own brother has had it with her.  Butch wants two things: 1. To belong somewhere 2. To be good enough for Marrisa.  But as long as he is human he doesn’t see how either of those things would be possible. 

More than anything you can feel Butch’s desire to be good for the one woman he could ever love, his life has been shit and you can defiantly feel for him.  Who hasn’t wanted someone they felt was just out of their reach but can’t help themselves anyway?  His struggle with his inner demons and desire to belong somewhere is completely believable and relatable.  Marissa is a beauty beyond comparison but feels completely inadequate.  What women hasn’t felt this way once or twice on the outside you may look perfect but on the inside you struggle with self esteem and feelings of inadequacy?  Her loneliness is haunting but through the book she learns a lot about herself and what she is capable of... By the end of the book you have a whole new woman, she struggles to get there but you are rooting for her the whole way through her journey to a strong beautiful woman!
