Well, I finally finished my re-read of "Dark Lover." I hope to get to a review of it once I finish my current one about "Nothing Personal."
First, I was disappointed about the big fight scene between Mr. X, Billy, Beth, and Wrath. I didn't remember it being short. I also didn't remember that Mr. X was taken by The Omega. I thought Mr. O took over the Lessers or something at the end of this one. I imagine this won't be the last of Mr. X, and I will have to read the second book in the series sometime soon.
Second, I thought more occurred between Butch and Marissa. I didn't remember that they didn't become a full couple by the end. I guess it makes sense that they take it slow, especially since she's a virgin. I expect that their romance will develop in later novels. They might even have a novella about their romance. Who knows?
Third, I really thought that Wrath is allowed to see Beth one time thanks to the Scribe Virgin. He was able to see her briefly, and I had hoped she would give that as a gift to Wrath for his wedding.
Finally, my copy had a lot of editing issues, which really bugged me. The first time I read this book, I don't remember any editing errors. There were at least 4 or 5 that glared at me as the story progressed. This irritated me because I bought this copy. The original one I read was borrowed from the library.
Originally, I gave the book a +4 rating, but I might lower it to a +3. I'm not sure. I'll revisit my feelings once I sit down to write the review. I still enjoyed my second reading of it. :)
