So I was kinda nudging when I suggested to JR Ward that you might wanna hear a little about the wicked hot dynamic between Butch and V in her new bestseller, "Lover Revealed." I mean, who here at RBtheBook/Blog doesn't dig a little m/m bonding?
But she did it, she hooks us up with some tantalizing Butch/V food for thought. Cause the only thing we love more than the torture between Black Dagger Brotherhood releases is JR's taunting us with hints of Bros to come as we wish her as restrained a buongiorno as possible...
Since LOVER REVEALED was released about three weeks ago, I’ve received a ton of emails from folks about the dynamic between Vishous and Butch. There’s all kinds of speculation going on about them and their relationship- the vast majority of which falls into the Good-Lord-they’re-hot, how-far-is-it-going-to-go category.
I happen to agree with the Good-Lord-they’re-hot people.
And I would like to delve further into their relationship here- but I really can’t. How can I with V’s book still not out on the shelves? LOL I know, I know... just give a few hints. :) But I really have to save the deets for LOVER UNBOUND. Otherwise, folks will just end up reading that book for the scenes where V gets out the black wax and-
Well, ANYWAY... *clears throat*
I will say this... V couldn’t have fallen in love with his shellan if not for Butch having come into his life. Just wouldn’t have happened. Of all the Brothers, V was, and to some extent remains, the most reserved and closed with his emotions. It’s a product of his upbringing (if you could call it that) in the warrior camp and something that will take decades if not centuries to get over. See, during his formative years, survival required detachment and V learned that lesson very, very well.
Kept it with him, too. By the time Butch came around, Vishous had been shut off for so long, I don’t know if he even recognized at first what the friendship with the cop meant to him. But when we see them together in LOVER REVEALED, V is pretty dayumed clear that he needs Butch in his life: he’s formed an attachment to another person for the very first time.
I believe this Lewis and Clark routine with Butch paves the way for what V comes to feel for Dr. Jane Whitcomb. Without it, I think V would have just walked away after he and Jane first met- because he would not have recognized the telltale signs of an attachment.
Yeah, the smartest one in the Brotherhood can be kind of clueless. :) Personally, I love V even though he and I didn’t really get along all that well. What do you think of him?
Hang with JR and the BDB at JRWard.com!
