Book Synopsis from goodreads
In the darkest corners of the night in Caldwell, New York, a conflict like no other rages. The city is home to a band of brothers born to defend their race: the warrior vampires of the Black Dagger Brotherhood.

Now back in the Brotherhood - and unrecognisable as the vampire leader he once was - Tohrment is physically emaciated and heartbroken beyond despair. When he begins to see his beloved in his dreams - trapped in a cold, isolating netherworld - Tohr turns to a self-serving fallen angel in hopes of saving the one he has lost. When he's told he must learn to love another to free his former mate, Tohr knows they are all doomed . . .

Except then a female with a shadowed history begins to get through to him. Against the backdrop of the raging war with the lessers, and with a new clan of vampires vying for the Blind King's throne, Tohr struggles between the buried past, and a very hot, passion-filled future . . . but can his heart let go and set all of them free?
My Thoughts

I wanted to try a really elaborated review, but let's stick to simple one. I liked it, not over the top but just in the lines of okay story.

Lover Reborn continues the series with Thorment and No'One. I am happy for Tohr, he deserves his happy ending. After reading about Tohr's and the angst that follows in practically all BDB books I couldn't help but fall in love with the vampire. However I laughed out loud every time I read the name No'One. Just imagine how many great jokes it would make if Tohr tried to introduce her to someone, 'Meet my Shellan  No'one.' Yeah I just couldn't resist. But I am happy that she finally had a name. 

This book had so many other mini stories that it was hard to keep up at times. Specially with the huge amount of Xhex and John. Didn't they already have a book? 

Layla, I feel really sorry for the girl. She is just a blood bag to everyone. That's the saddest part but after this book the blood bag thing might finally change, so I am keeping my fingers crossed for the chosen. 

Qhuinn and Blay... there is not enough space for me to describe how I feel about them. So let's just say when I saw this 
I was screaming like five year old and then crying like a love sick teenager.

Ward is actually giving them a novel? I wasn't expecting that but after reading this lines I was ready for a short story.
As Blay started to straighten, like a message had been received, Qhuinn thought,
That’s right, buddy. Our future has come.
Oh Miss Ward, you are a complete tease. Which also means the Black Dagger Brotherhood series continues.
And I can not wait to read book #11 when I can find out who bottoms or who tops... or both (pun intended) lol
