    I enjoyed the story up to the middle, then I found some chapter quite redundant I was kept on my toes on why Thorne could not commit but when I found out, I found him a bit too whinny and his excuses felt flat Thorme is a very big bad Dom, the one and only owner of Dominion, a BDSM selective club He is pretty much a God and protect everyone under his wing So his persona is definitely the Dom of the Dom in the Domworldland.Animation1His fear and refusal to commit did not make sense with I enjoyed the story up to the middle, then I found some chapter quite redundant I was kept on my toes on why Thorne could not commit but when I found out, I found him a bit too whinny and his excuses felt flat Thorme is a very big bad Dom, the one and only owner of Dominion, a BDSM selective club He is pretty much a God and protect everyone under his wing So his persona is definitely the Dom of the Dom in the Domworldland.Animation1His fear and refusal to commit did not make sense with his personality To be rejected by a lover sub when he was a teen, mocked by his father and rejected by his ex wife because he was too kinky I understand that a person may have scars but considering the level of understanding he had with all the Doms and subs he had in his community and club, I did not find it a good excuse to refuse to commit to the woman he loved For four years, he saw the woman in many D s scenes but yet believe he can be too much for her He claims he knows her soul, but yet he rejected her two times knowing the aftermaths So up to the middle of the story, I enjoy Thorne, then after a while I could not wait to go to the epilogue.I loved Sean and Callie much better But lets continue with the less My second regret is that I was truly expecting the big bad army guys to show up and do something crazy In fact, they ran away all the time, we heard about the villains but nothing happened Plus, I did not get much the all of a sudden the bad guys are just behind them Callie stayed fours years as a member of Dominion s employee, yet nobody came after her during that time She was not a prisoner, FBI knew where she was Obviously the villains too So why did everyone waiting to make a move after four years I did not find much logic nor credibility here.Now the good parts and trust me you will find many.I am always thrilled when I discover that the heroes are not brotherhood, did not spend their childhood in an orphanage, did not run away together because of abusive family, did not shared the army service together, are not siblings, etc.Shayla Black gave me a treat here Both heroes do not like each other They do not hate each other but they are definitely not in the bro mood together I loved it For me it is way closer to reality.In real life, keys to have a long term relationship is to have respect, communication and the do not cheat addendum Human nature means that we are territorial and a male and a female will be sufficient with each other and both will fulfill the needs in each other But what if the person we love is not enough, that something is missing and he or she is not able to give Most people will compromise and accept that there is no perfection We may think that way during the honeymoon but once real life kicks in, the pedestal gone, we all know that we accept the other one with his her flaws and deal with them.But in an ideal world, we would bring the best of each person and mix them to make a one perfect one mmm not happening So it happens that we fall in love with people at the same time The concept to love multiple people is common We almost all do that We love, we marry, we divorce and we do it again, minus marriage most of the time but love is still on the line, maybe different, no less or bigger, just different from the previous one s.What I loved about Theirs to Cherish was it was not a done deal from the start Each had to work to make it work Both heroes were very different One was a true Dom, when the other one was a dominant in the bedroom Very different if you know a bit about the BDSM lifestyle The concept in romance to have two Doms and one sub is for me not believable Doms are all different I invite you to read this glossary of BDFSM and come back to me and tell me that it is possible to have such harmony with two Doms and one sub But we are in the romance world where everything is possible right wink So yes, I love when the heroes do not like each other, are different and finally compromise It gives the characters waydepth.Then, we have the sex scenes I truly enjoyed them So much that I gave the highest rate which is rare for me I am less and less impressed with the sex menage scenes now I say now, but I ve always been picky If I do not end a sex scene thinking that I wished I had one like that, then it is a good sex scenes not an outstanding jealous I want one sex scene So yes, those are pretty rare But I got them in Theirs to Cherish.From beginning to end, I wanted to know the epilogue and know how both men will compromise For the fans of this series, they will adore the epilogue For the occasional readers like me, you will also like it All those testosterone to help one of them to find happiness was totally endearing.Do I recommend this story Definitely yes Will I read another menage one from this series No doubt

    This was an interesting start to a menage relationship, because both Sean and Thorpe came off as these ultra uber alpha male Doms who did not share Funny how one woman and the right set of circumstances could change their minds and men who were once enemies were now determined to keep one woman between them Mitchell Thorpe is an uber Dom, but one that refused to enter into any kind of relationship based on what happened in a previous relationship I get that we are all gun shy, in some way, sh This was an interesting start to a menage relationship, because both Sean and Thorpe came off as these ultra uber alpha male Doms who did not share Funny how one woman and the right set of circumstances could change their minds and men who were once enemies were now determined to keep one woman between them Mitchell Thorpe is an uber Dom, but one that refused to enter into any kind of relationship based on what happened in a previous relationship I get that we are all gun shy, in some way, shape or form, after a relationship goes bad, but it was as if Thorpe swung to the complete opposite end of the spectrum to save himself from hurt For such a smart man, he perpetually pushed Callie away and then had the nerve to be over the top jealous when she found someone who loved her I really wanted to dislike Sean He lied to her for many months and despite his profession of love, you had to wonder if his feelings were real But as the story progressed, you could tell his feeling were genuine and you wanted Callie to understand why he did what he did and find a way to forgive him But I didn t believe him to be a true Dom, especially when compared to Thorpe To me, he was a total alpha male who liked a little kink.I m on the fence about Callie She definitely had a hard life, but her brattiness and stubbornness bothered me to the point where I couldn t empathize with her And to add fuel to that fire, I couldn t believe she was really a sub either She questioned WAY too much If Thorpe or Sean told her the sky was blue, she was going to say it was gray She may have been attracted to Thorpe because he had an air of authority and she needed that in her out of control life, she just seemed muchsuited to a different life, one that didn t have the constant struggle between a Master Dom and his sub I have loved other books in this series, but I couldn t connect with this one I needed to be able to believe that three individuals engaging in this menage D s relationship could actually work together It was a struggle for me to see that relationship or to even want it Others have loved it and you may too, but it just wasn t for me

    I don t know yet if I ll bother to read It sounds like yet another stupid female running from danger who winds up falling for a guy who likes to dominate who s been wounded by some skank in the past I m 99 percent sure the danger she s running from will catch up to her and her big, bad alpha males will save her and they ll all live a HEA Yaaaayyyyy I m so excited Except not Maybe I m sounding bitchy because I really want something good to read and everything I ve found is exactly the same, I don t know yet if I ll bother to read It sounds like yet another stupid female running from danger who winds up falling for a guy who likes to dominate who s been wounded by some skank in the past I m 99 percent sure the danger she s running from will catch up to her and her big, bad alpha males will save her and they ll all live a HEA Yaaaayyyyy I m so excited Except not Maybe I m sounding bitchy because I really want something good to read and everything I ve found is exactly the same, but really Why do these authors bother writing if every story is going to be the same I usually only read one book per author simply because any book series turns out to feature books too similar to keep me interested I just wish for once we could have a book that didn t feature a shy though with snarky moments to make her seem strong , slightly stupid heroine falling for some big bad alpha who s closed off because of something in his past but winds up letting the heroine in because he can t control his crazy lust And I m extremely, way way way beyond sick of the whole female in danger bit Jesus Christ It s beyond annoying

    I ve always had a kind of lukewarm relationship with this series Interesting and entertaining but I always have problems with them Usually the fact that they can be short on plot and the characters big secrets personal torments are often much ado about nothing Theirs to Cherish is no exception An over the top plot and a character with a past that has tormented him for 20 years I definitely enjoyed the first half or even three quarters of this book over the end Mitchell Thorpe has always I ve always had a kind of lukewarm relationship with this series Interesting and entertaining but I always have problems with them Usually the fact that they can be short on plot and the characters big secrets personal torments are often much ado about nothing Theirs to Cherish is no exception An over the top plot and a character with a past that has tormented him for 20 years I definitely enjoyed the first half or even three quarters of this book over the end Mitchell Thorpe has always been an enigma so it was interesting to learnabout him even if it was hard to swallow that he remained damaged and completely shut off after 20 years based on his past Getting Callie s back story was also interesting The addition of Sean added to the dynamic and it was entertaining to watch two uber alpha s compromise for the sake of their love for one woman.The ending completely jumped the shark with its convoluted mess of shady genetic research, a covert paramilitary organization willing to kill, and possible government involvement The story wrapped up so quickly with virtually no explanation that it defied all belief For the issues I continue to have with this series, there seems to be just enough there to keep me coming back for

    I remember when I started this series and how much I loved it I love the author and she quickly became a favorite of mine I had hoped like a few of the other series that I read that this author wouldn t steer away from what the series use to be about I think the series has lost the meat that readers grabbed onto and now it has another form of meat I found myself skipping the hot scenes to get back to the storyline I will continue to read the series because I love the author and don t want I remember when I started this series and how much I loved it I love the author and she quickly became a favorite of mine I had hoped like a few of the other series that I read that this author wouldn t steer away from what the series use to be about I think the series has lost the meat that readers grabbed onto and now it has another form of meat I found myself skipping the hot scenes to get back to the storyline I will continue to read the series because I love the author and don t want to miss the characters that I love so much I only wish the author would get to what is important

    I think it is time to wrap up the Wicked Lovers series I enjoyed a lot of the books in it but this one was soooooo boring It was disappointing because I really wanted a better story for Thorpe.

and others that didn t hit the mark with me While the backstory of why Callie came to work at Club Dominion was mildly interesting, the characters themselves were tiring and unbelievable I don t recommend this story for anyone uncomfortable with detailed descriptions of physical and emotional domination.Opening Sentence Callie trembled as she lay back on the padded table and Sean Kirkpatrick s strong fingers wrapped around her cuffed wrist, guiding it back to the bindings above her head.The Review Callie Ward is in love with two very different men.One runs the BDSM club where Callie has found an unexpected refuge from her life on the run This man embodies the definition of a dominant, capable of stripping her defenses and setting her body aflame in equal measure, but has repeatedly kept her at arm s length.She wears the collar of the other, a gentle man who s sworn to own her body and soul This man is everything Thorpe isn t patient, adoring and someone she can easily imagine spending the rest of her life with Which is a huge problem thanks to Callie s past.Not wanting to bring either man into her dangerous game of hide and seek, Callie is determined to finally cut ties after spending one night in the arms of both Learning that the man she found herself falling for was hiding his own secrets secrets that only strengthen her resolve to get as far as possible from them both before anyone gets hurt Luckily for her, the two men are so busy figuratively comparing penis sizes that she s able to play them both and escape Her sudden reappearance after four years of hiding within the secluded walls of Dominion doesn t go unnoticed though Armed uniformed men are waiting for her, men that are very clearly not the police or FBI agents she s used to eluding.Being the dominant males they are, Thorpe and Sean aren t willing to allow Callie to disappear from their lives without a fight After admitting what they both know about her past, they re convinced that Callie cannot take care of herself or evade this new threat without their help They begrudgingly agree to put their mutual jealousy aside in order to protect Callie from the threat these new men pose Essentially kidnapping her from the Vegas strip club where she d been making easy money, Thorpe and Sean make it very clear that they rethan content to teach her what it means to be a submissive until they can figure out why so many people are after her.I have to admit that seeing a m nage book on my review list reminded me of how it felt the first time I bought condoms a little naughty, a lot nervous and unable to look anyone in the eyes It s not that I didn t have a general idea of what to expect After all, regardless of the genders or number of people involved, human anatomy somewhat limits the number of sexual positions.But Theirs to Cherish isn t just a m nage story It s also a BDSM story with emotional domination that far exceeded my comfort level Some of this discomfort is because no longer having free will or decision making abilities in any aspect of life, not just sexual terms, doesn t interest to me in the least I had a very difficult time with how both men treated Callie and ultimately didn t see their interactions as erotic This uneasiness definitely altered my perception of the story until even the dialogue became exasperating I lost count of how many times and how many characters referred to Callie as minx or vixen or some cheesy variation thereof because she didn t act submissive enough.The number of inconsistencies with the characters also became an issue with me Callie was a self confessed spoiled heiress who was forced into hiding at sixteen after a horrendous tragedy Falling into the sex industry stripping or otherwise makes sense since she didn t have to answer too many questions about her past, but where or how would she have perfected the skills to masterfully elude highly trained soldiers or agents If she was so frightened of having a dominant break through her barriers, why did she work as a submissive in a BDSM club Wouldn t becoming a dominant have been a better way to cover her tracks Then there s Sean and Thorpe I know they were both so hopelessly in love with Callie that they were willing to put her needs first, but these were supposed to be alpha males and dominants Yet, beside from willingly beating her and taking away her free will, neither Sean nor Thorpe were believable as alpha males Thorpe was too busy wallowing in self pity and acting like a bitter old man to be even remotely attractive while Sean came off as a weak willed sucker I personally couldn t see any reason why Callie wanted either, let alone both of them, at the same time Her inability to choose between Sean and Thorpe apparently the only choice she was allowed in the entire story read as both childish and annoying.Though I had these personal issues with the story, I m glad that I was able to step outside of my comfort zone and not let some misguided sense of embarrassment deter me from trying a new genre Overall, I think someone who regularly enjoys both m nage and somewhat hardcore BDSM stories will find Theirs to Cherish an entertaining read, but anyone who s new to either genre might want to begin with another book.Notable Scene She had to find the only sensitive man in a BDSM dungeon.She would have been better off with someone who just wanted her to kneel, call him Sir, and liked to dish out a good paddling nowand then Perversely, that had never attracted her Sean s big heartdid, and she feared that she would break both his and hers beforethe end Maybe this time will be different Maybe the past will stay there.Four years is the longest you ve stayed in one place Maybe it s time tostop running and finally live.Callie drew in a shaking breath I ll try again Really try Tellme what you want, Sir That s a girl Sean eased her to her feet and led her back tothe padded table.A glance up proved Thorpe had gone Probably for the best Hewas far too controlled and sexual for her If she ever truly put herselfin his hands, he d pry her soul wide open in no time at all Shecouldn t take that risk.FTC Advisory
