Q is for Quinn!

Quinn is one of the original pretrans teens that the Blackdagger Brotherhood started training before the hit on the glymera. He has always felt like an outcast from his family as he was born with two different colored eyes. Fighting for any scrap of affection, he finally turns into himself, shunning his best friend, Blay, who loves him. Swinging both ways of the door, Quinn is on a path of destruction having sex in bathroom stalls with anything that moves.

In Lover at Last, we get Quinn’s story. While I didn’t enjoy the book, I was happy to finally see Quinn getting what he wants. The Chosen, Layla, is pregnant with his child and Blay is not his hellren. Without going too much into the story that about sums up his life.

Why Quinn? I ached for him from the beginning. Blay’s family and John were the only ones to show him any ounce of affection, so he thought he wasn’t worthy of it. He almost dies for killing his cousin, Lash. He really hits rock bottom.

I love those original books in the series but I never got on board with Qhuinn and his age group of Brothers. I know so many who just loved their storylines but just wasn’t for me unfortunately.

I love Qhuinn, but I wanted him with Layla 🙂

Quinn and Blay’s book is the one I need to read next. I’ve put it off for several months b/c I wasn’t ready for more of the angst these two cook up. I read enough m/m that I’m leery of a mainstream writer who tries it on and hopes she got it right.

And great Q list. You picked several that came to my mind. I’m going with quirky for today.

Qhuinn’s story was ok. I had many issues with the book which I did include in my book review. I didn’t think Qhuinn should become a brother before John Matthew. But that was just one of my many issues with the book. Qhuinn himself is a great character though. I find that the books tend to have more and more sidestories in them now which I don’t like. I want to continue with the series I really do but some of the newer characters seemed forced on me.
