Veena’s review of Theirs To Cherish (Wicked Lovers, Book Eight) by Shayla Black
Erotic Romance published by Berkley 04 Mar 14

Domination and submission comes in a lot of shades and Ms. Black explores them all in her ongoing series set in Club Dominion. It’s time to explore what shade Callie Ward, submissive at the club, needs…

Callie is considered a brat by most of the dominants who are regulars at Club Dominion until it seems Sean Kirkpatrick tames her down and collars her. Callie is hiding a lot of secrets and uses her crusty attitude to keep people at a distance. Unbeknownst to her, both Sean and Mitchell Thorpe, club dominant and owner, know her secrets.

Mitchell has desired Callie with all her secrets for years but has kept his desires locked down because he fears that he cannot give her the future that she needs. However, when Sean enters the scene, tames and collars Callie, Mitchell can’t seem to let them be either. With the two men posturing with each other and treating Callie like a bone between them, her suspicions are raised and she goes on the run.

But Callie has a target on her back and it will take both men working in unison to keep her safe.  I thoroughly enjoyed the sojourn at the topless club where Callie becomes a dancer and the guys finally run her down after several days of hunting for her. Poor Callie, I certainly shiver at the possible punishments she faces from both dominants.  I guess it’s really Lucky Callie, because it seems like the guys have put aside their differences and finally decided to give her what she wants and needs. The loving is short lived since there’s still a target on Callie’s back and Mitchell definitely knows he’s not for her, given his past and age.

Can they all work their way to keeping Callie safe and providing her with what she needs? While you might certainly be able to figure out the answer, it’s the journey that you need to read about to definitely discover.  The ending reaches out and grabs all my emotions. What a wonderful ending to an very interesting story.

I’ve enjoyed this series so far. As always, some stories touch you more than others. It’s great to briefly visit with all the characters in the series so far and get a glimpse of what the author has in store for us in the future.

Grade: B


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 seducing her body and slowly 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…
