Theirs to Cherish (Wicked Lovers #8) by Shayla Black

"From characters and setting to make you tingle steamy bits and edge of your seat suspense...Theirs to Cherish was a wicked good time." ~ herding cats & burning soup
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.

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…

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…

Oh, hell yeah! Theirs to Cherish was just what I needed. Damn, but Shayla Black created a phenomenal menage romance tinged with suspense that had me on the edge of my seat the entire time.  Bratty subs, two deliciously dominant men who can't stand each other, action and toe curling sexy going on. Seriously. I cannot freaking believe I'm just getting my ass to read her books. *hangs head* I'm totally going to have to go on a Shayla Black binge read...soon.

The quick of it is that Callie has been on the run and living under an assumed name for nearly a decade after her family was murdered. It's been a few years since she found a safe haven in a BDSM club but danger has caught up with her once again and she's getting ready to bolt. Only this time her years at the club have managed to get all good and entangled with two very different men who are determined to help her escape her past. And that might be hiding a few secrets of their own.

Alright so these guys. Whew! Thorpe and Sean. I freaking LOVED them. They're so different from each other and damn it was fun watching them go from pretty much loathing each other--because they both were into the same girl and jealous as hell--and wanting to throw down to being a tag team that would do anything to keep Callie safe and pleasure the fuck out of her at the same time. I mean. Damn. That was a LOT of seriously virile alpha male directed at one woman. Lucky, lucky bitch.
  • Thorpe is all Dom. He's older--which gah just does it for me-- and so has that commanding Dom presence that's just shiver worthy. He's also way damaged from a trauma in his youth and really struggles with being able to tell Callie how he feels about her. I just ached for him as he struggled and watched Sean do what he couldn't with such ease. 
  • And Sean. He's a baby Dom but well on his way to having it all figured out. He's a little less commanding in that way but so very good in others. He's very open about loving Callie and a bit more light hearted and gentle. I loved the differences between the two and that they each very much filled a part of Callie that she needed.
  • Then there's Callie who is a bratty sub. Lordy. Yeah, she likes topping from the bottom and really gives these two a run for their money. She doesn't always make the best choices but I could usually see where she was coming from and her thought process so it really didn't bother me too much.
These three were incredible together. Their personalities meshed and worked so nicely balancing each other out. And the sex. Ung! Yes. This one will make you squirm. Damn me. This trio in all of their combos was scorching. It's not really kinky but it's hot and erotic and filled with passion and emotion and was just excellent.
"Am I hurting you, lovely?" he asked, strain evident in his voice.

"It's tight. I feel so stretched."

Thorpe gnashed his teeth and fought for patience. He peeked around"Demanding : Callie's creamy shoulder, kissing it, then shot Sean a look.

The other man nodded. "We'll take it slow, then."

"Don't you dare!" she screeched. "Fuck me, damn it. I'm dying..."
"Demanding minx," Sean growled.

"Yes, sir. Now hurry!"

Thorpe slapped her ass once as a matter of principle. "You don't make the demands, pet. But as it happens, fucking you suits us."

Sean didn't wait or reply or even give a shit what he was doing. He simply began thrusting up, shoving into her pussy with long, firm strokes that shook her body. Oh, no way was the fed getting all the pleasure.

Thorpe found the rhythm of Sean's strokes and began diving his way into Callie's ass between each. They quickly fell into sync, like a complicated trio of dancers--Sean plunging inside her, then Thorpe grinding down into her, and Callie rocking her hips for the most impact. It became a symphony of breaths, moans, skin gliding, sheets rustling. Fuck, it was like they'd done this a hundred times and knew the cadence and flow they each needed for maximum pleasure. It was utter magic.
The suspense was great too. There's always a spot of danger lurking as they try to figure out who murdered Callie's family and keep her safe from those hunting her. It was fun seeing it all piece together. Sometimes I felt like I was a step ahead of them in that department and other times I had no clue so it was a good time watching it unfold.

All in all, I was damn impressed with Black and can't believe I've not read her sooner. Total book love, people. Total book love. From characters and setting to make you tingle steamy bits and edge of your seat suspense...Theirs to Cherish was a wicked good time.
