Theirs to Cherish

A Wicked Lovers Novel, #9

Callie is no stranger if you've read the Wicked series, but we are given a more rounded version in this book. Always portrayed as a mouthy "brat" it is instead revealed that she is on the run for her very life and has been for 10 years. One would think things would calm down after a decade but not so for Callie. If anything the pursuit she's been running from is getting ever closer, only she doesn't know it until the man she is falling in love with makes a mistake. And so Callie's on the run again with not one but two men tracking her for the same reason. Sean, the incognito Dom and Thorpe, the owner of the club she's been living/working at for four years.

This was not a quick brainless read, nor was it like another book co-written by the same author (as I feared). Keep in mind this is not a traditional romance but a three-way romance. The men are not romantically involved but become true partners when it comes to protecting Callie. I found the story well-paced as well as intriguing. If you are looking for vanilla sex you need to look elsewhere, and if you believe a woman can only love one man at a time you will be disappointed. I liked the cameos of characters from previous books using their skills to help out when they could. The ending was not as "descriptive" as I would have liked, but all in all a good read.
