For a moment, Darcy almost convinced herself the last twelve hours didn’t happen. As image after image hits her, the sinking realization of all she’s lost overwhelms her and all she can think of is to run. Run far away where her shame can’t find her, and most of all, where she’ll never have to see the look of blame in Mason’s eyes. Feeling like a complete failure, she scrambles to make plans. But the voice of her mate-to-be penetrates her frantic thoughts, asking for the chance to show her just how much she is loved.
It hurts Mason deeply to hear Darcy’s thoughts, knowing the events of the previous night have completely rattled her. Grieving over the death of his beloved sister Jasmine, Mason knows he has to act fast. Darcy is all he’s ever wanted and the idea of life without her is unacceptable. Armed with his unswerving love and wolfish charm, he sets out to remind Darcy just how valuable she is and why there is no one else for him but her.
Can Darcy let go of the shame of failure consuming her or will Mason convince her that after all is said and done, she truly is… Cherished?
*I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
Full of gripping emotion and unconditional love!
In the first installment of this series we meet Darcy, a werewolf engaged to the pack Alpha who experiences a great loss at the hands of betrayal when an innocent walk with her future sister in law Jasmine, turns tragic. Set hours after Without Mercy, CHERISHED explores the main characters, Mason and Darcy, as they try to heal after the death of Jasmine and mend their relationship. Together they learn you can face anything when you have true love by your side.
Although the first story was short in length, I really connected with Mason and Darcy and was anxious to learn more about them when I reached the last page. Now in CHERISHED, the story focuses less on the action and suspense of the first, giving us more character development and overwhelming emotions. Feeling immense guilt for not being able to evade the untimely death of her sister in law, Darcy struggles with leaving her pack and man she loves. When her fiancé Mason reads her thoughts, he is forced to go to any lengths to prove to Darcy just how much he needs and loves her.
Strong emotions unwrapped as each character bares their soul and begins to shed their past guilt to begin a new life together. One of the sweetest elements of this story is just how pure Mason and Darcy’s love truly is, she is still a virgin and he refuses to give into his carnal desires until they are properly mated. These two characters have a beautiful connection and certainly know how keep the reader wanting with their sexual tension!
The supernatural world of werewolves is also explored a bit more in this book. We learn more about the pack world, their rules and even get a flashback of when Mason and Darcy first met! Belinda Boring has given us a sequel just as marvelous as the first with her descriptive writing, extraordinary characters and raw emotion that will leave you longing for more of her world of mystic wolves!
