The perfect place for a woman on the run to disappear…

Accused of a horrific murder she didn’t commit, former heiress Callie Ward has been a fugitive since she was sixteen—until she found the perfect hideout, Club Dominion. The only problem is she’s fallen for the club’s Master, Mitchell Thorpe, who keeps her at arm’s length. Little does she know that his reasons for not getting involved have everything to do with his wounded heart…and his consuming desire for her.

To live out her wildest fantasies…

Enter Sean Kirkpatrick, a Dom who’s recently come to Dominion and taken a pointed interest in Callie. Hoping to make Thorpe jealous, she submits to Sean one shuddering sigh at a time. It isn’t long before she realizes she’s falling for him too. But the tender lover who’s slowly seducing her body and earning her trust isn’t who he claims…

And to fall in love.

When emotions collide and truths are exposed, Sean is willing to risk all to keep Callie from slipping through his fingers. But he’s not the only man looking to stake a claim. Now Callie is torn between Sean and Thorpe, and though she’s unsure whom she can trust, she’ll have to surrender her body and soul to both—if she wants to elude a killer…



The Wicked Lovers Series by Shayla Black is one of the sexiest, most intense, and just plain brilliant series out there today. I always find myself counting down the days until Shayla gives us another one of her masterpieces. Not only does she create these magnificent characters and thrilling story lines, but she pulls you in with so much depth and emotion that you can’t help but get attached. There is just something about this author’s way with words, both crazy sexy and ridiculously emotional, that will have you squirming in your seat, craving and begging for more.

I think the main reason why I loved Theirs to Cherish so much was the fact that this was supposed to be my man Thorpe’s happy ending. Mitchell Thorpe, owner of Dominion, was introduced to us in previous Wicked Lover books. He was the hard ass, intense as hell Dom who never took any shit from no one. His word was law in Dominion, and damn did he just hit all the right buttons for me. He was always a mystery. A mystery that always had you thinking in the back of your mind, “what is his deal?” Thorpe was always the man in the background, a gorgeous man who was unreachable, unattached, and always in control. A past relationship killed his spirit, and now he doesn’t believe he is good enough, tender enough to care for the one woman that he’s wanted by his side since the first time he laid eyes on her.

“You want Callie, as I do,”

“More than I want all my tomorrows,”

Sean Kirkpatrick, the newest Dom in town, has his sights set on the sub that Thorpe has sworn to protect. He’s collared her, made her his, but there is more to him. He is a mystery himself. Sean has secrets, secrets that could destroy his future with his “lovely.” In most ways, Sean is the opposite of Thorpe. Sean is tender, more gentle. He is not at all afraid to share his feelings with the woman he loves.

“Share your mind and heart with me. Give me your trust and honesty. You’ve been alive, but you haven’t really lived, Callie. I want to help you do that and be with you every step of the way.”

Callie Ward was always a puzzle to me. She is the epitome of a bratty submissive. Some subs are bratty, because they crave attention from their Doms, but Callie isn’t like that. Her brattiness stems from something deeper. It’s her way of not getting too close to people. Callie’s devastating past has prevented her from being truly happy. She wants nothing more than to stay in one place and give her all to her Sir, but something is holding her back.

“I’ve never understand a Dom’s fascination with a sub counting. You’re educated. You can get to ten without me.”

These three characters are so incredibly strong. All three have secrets that are preventing them from giving 100% of themselves. You have a man who is always in control, feeling completely inadequate, you have a man who has to hide his true self, and you have a woman who has been running her entire life. You have no choice, but to hold these characters close to your heart.

The best part was seeing these two men gently warm up to one another, especially with such strong personalities. The love that they share for Callie is so incredibly beautiful, and the fact that they can put aside their feelings, step outside of their comfort zone and just be what she needs is, is my definition of the perfect Dom.

What it all boils down to is that Ms. Black took us on another amazing journey filled with suspense, heartache, and scorching hot sex. What more could you want? Theirs to Cherish is a steamy, fast-paced romance that will have you on the edge of your seat. You get page after page of double Dom goodness! Your old favorite characters jump in to the madness, and you are also introduced to some new faces and personalities that will make you smile. Tears, laughter, and shock, just be prepared for a very long night.

    1. To answer the question (How could I miss that -.-‘ ) my favourite character is London. I can relate to her and it gives me hope to find my Xander and Javier some day. However, Jack is a close, close second!

  3. I’ve only read Ours to Love and I really, really liked that book. I loved how the brothers shared London, that was hot!
