A former blood slave, the vampire Zsadist still bears the scars from a past filled with suffering and humiliation. Renowned for his unquenchable fury and sinister deeds, he is a savage feared by humans and vampires alike. Anger is his only companion, and terror is his only passion—until he rescues a beautiful aristocrat from the evil Lessening Society.
Bella is instantly entranced by the seething power Zsadist possesses. But even as their desire for one another begins to overtake them both, Zsadist’s thirst for vengeance against Bella’s tormentors drives him to the brink of madness. Now, Bella must help her lover overcome the wounds of his tortured past, and find a future with her . . .

I couldn’t put this book down! Believe me when I say that the events are still pretty vivid in my mind as much as all the strong emotions both story and characters gave me. With Bella taken captive and a desperate Z looking for her, I was already feeling pretty emotional, then flashbacks of Z’s past and his tormenting days as a slave started blurring my eyes until I found myself weeping because of the couple, their relationship issues and . . . well, complications. Painful and touching, Bella and Z’s story is extremely powerful.

Truth to be told, I didn’t love this book just because of the main couple. Lots of oh-my things happen and for different characters . . . I definitely had a better connection with most of them, and a special mention needs to be done for John Matthew. Boy, I’m growing so fond of him!

Heartbreaking from the beginning to the end, Lover Awakened is the best instalment so far! But then, the twist at the end of this book really got me by surprise and I’m thrilled and in a desperate need to go on with the read. So I’m pretty positive about the fact that this series is getting better and better any time!
