This highly anticipated book of John Matthew did not disappoint. As a reader, we've been following him since the beginning of the series. From Darius, to his pre-trans phase, to his transition, and now, in Lover Mine where he finally can sign "MINE"! Being a big fan of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series, I can not express enough how much I loved this book!! I'll say it again...I loved this book!!! Based on other reviews, some things were annoying to others but I was able to look past all that. The good in the book definitely outweighed the not so good. Although not all questions were answered about John & his past life, I was really satisfied when I was done. I recommend this book to anyone who has read the previous BDB books. This is highly ranked up there for me with my favorite of the series, Lover Awakened!!
