Lover Awakened - J.R. Ward Shouldn't have complained about blandness of the relationship in the first book. Second decided to "spice up" romance with terminal disease, this one with torture and sex slavery. Anyway, seen what I wanted to see how author will tackle, was way worse than what I imagined. Even prose seems to be getting worse - or maybe that's just me losing suspension of disbelief and becoming more and more critical. Either way, I'm done with these series
