Review: Cherished by Belinda Boring
Publisher: Moonstruck Media
Author's Website: The Bookish Snob
Purchase @ Amazon.co.uk Amazon.com Smashwords Barnes and Noble
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?
Cherished is the second book in the Mystic Wolves series by Belinda Boring. This book is its prequels complete opposite but is still just as breathtaking. The emotion, the love and most of all, the passion is what makes this novella mind blowing.
Darcy and Mason make the most amazing couple. Darcy is still taking in and processing the events from the previous day and Mason is trying to help her come to terms with it whilst dealing with his own issues. It is just amazing the way that Mason tries to make Darcy feel better and build her confidence even though he is going through hell himself. I just love how selfless he is and Darcy is the exact same when it comes to her man and her pack.
Without Mercy’s theme, I think, is retribution whereas Cherished’s theme is more centered on love. I don’t just mean the whole lovey dovey emotions that go with love or the lust (well a little of that) but it’s more about the more complex emotions that make a relationship really strong enable it to go the distance. I don’t want to say too much or else I will ruin the novella for you.
Overall, just absolutely loved every word of Cherished. It had me gripped all the way through and I was just in awe of Mason and Darcy. They are definitely one of my top favourite fictional couples. Mason + Darcy = SWOON!! Can’t possibly say anything else except..READ IT!
