In the shadows of the night in Caldwell, New York,
there's a deadly war raging between vampires and their
slayers. And there exists a secret band of brothers
like no other - six vampire warriors, defenders of their
race. Now, an ally of the Black Dagger Brotherhood
will face the challenge of his life and the evil of the ages.

Butch O'Neal is a fighter by nature. A hard-living ex-homicide cop, he's the only human ever to be allowed in the inner circle of the Black Dagger Brotherhood. And he wants to go even deeper into the vampire world-to engage in the turf war with the lessers. His heart belongs to a female vampire, Marissa, an aristocratic beauty who's way out of his league. And if he can't have her, then at least he can fight side by side with the Brothers.

But fate curses him with the very thing he wants. When Butch sacrifices himself to save a civilian vampire from the slayers, he falls prey to the darkest force in the war. Left for dead, he's found by a miracle, and the Brotherhood calls on Marissa to bring him back, though even her love may not be enough to save him.

J. R. Ward loves throwing the reader into a unique world of paranormal

No matter how much and how far I get into reading the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. I can't get enough of its musky, spicy and all too good snarky New York/Boston accents, dialogue and so much more. This series is about an entirely different scope of vampires. Vampires that have their own society and live amongst themselves, feed amongst themselves and have their own Police system which they call call The Brotherhood. They are a big brooding bunch of immensely good-looking men or vampires, who protect themselves from their own type of evil known as the Lessers. The Lessers are soulless, used to be humans who fight and kill vampires for their own enjoyment. They are under the control of The Omega. The Omega can be thought of as the Satan of this all new world. The demon that all vampire civilians run away from and fear.

Now, that we've got that covered. Lover Revealed is the 4th installment to the BDB (Black Dagger Brotherhood) series. Like all the other books in the series. This one is the story of BDB's human pet, Butch O'Neal. In the first few books, Butch was a cop, a detective that was laid off from the force for going too far with a suspect. After getting laid off, he found himself poking around the wrong areas of Caldwell, New York. Or in other cases, he met a bunch of vampires and one of them (a.k.a. Vishous)  was absolutely smitten on him. Butch, ended up being Vishous' roommate at the big, dark and scary mansion of the Brotherhood. While he's stay there, he met a beautiful vampire aristocrate named Marissa, who he instantly fell in love with.

As the book continues on, we are thrown into Butch's story of his human life before the Brotherhood and how little life he had. How Butch captures Marissa's attention, and all the tortures he goes through to be by her side, his best bud Vishous' side as well as maintain his loyalty to the Brotherhood.

The world Ward writes, is absolutely enthralling. It's unique and nothing matches it's realism, form, style and everything else that comes into literature. Hats off for Wards writing style, imagination and for bringing to life yet another wonderful installment to the Black Dagger Brotherhood Series.
