Review + Giveaway ~ Theirs to Cherish (Wicked Lovers #8) by Shayla Black

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…
Pulsating – that is the word that best describes your emotions and even your body as you read through Shayla Black’s newest novel Theirs to Cherish. Nearly every one of her books has made me wish I could grab the man I am involved with or at very least the nearest vibrator. Oh, believe me you don’t want the Hitachi either, as big a fan of mine as I am, you will want something that you can build up the tension and let it off again and again much like Thorpe and Sean did to Callie.

My pulse raced as the pages turned. Callie being on the run and discovering the world of BDSM where your real name isn’t expected, where you can recreate yourself was an interesting turn. In some ways it is very true, when you are among lifestyle people it is almost expected that the name you give will not be your true one. Getting into the door, signing the rules and privacy agreements – your real name and legal ID is required, at least at every event I’ve been to. They have to know you’re above board, legal age, etc. Once you’re in the door… feel free to recreate yourself.

I won’t give the ending away but I will say that it is worth the wait. An interesting twist is that Shayla’s male leads of previous books in the Wicked Lovers series. All of that dominant, high testosterone in one room had to be heady. She definitely has the ability to write characters you want to follow. Dominants written in a way that the small submissive bone in my body made me want to kneel and accept that collar once again. Her characters definitely are written in a way that shows submission is not easy, giving your body is the easy part. I may let you do things to me but can you get into my brain, gain my trust? With every baited breath we follow the tug and pull of gaining the trust in a Dominant/submissive relationship let alone the added complication of polyamory.
