Publisher's Summary

Tyler Murphy was an LAPD detective, single and happy - until a near-fatal tragedy crippled his friend, fellow detective Eric Catalano. While Tyler supported Eric, he also became a shoulder for Eric's wife, Delaney, to lean on. But with one naughty suggestion from Eric, a drunken night with Delaney spilled into erotic abandon. Before it was over, Tyler saw his best friend's wife as a woman and yearned for more. When Eric struggled to deal with the aftermath, Delaney begged Tyler to leave.

Crushed, he fled to Louisiana, hoping to escape his longing for the one woman he could never have again...and unaware of what he'd left behind. After two years of living with regret, Tyler finds Delaney on his doorstep, her husband having abandoned her long ago. She's protecting a shocking secret and desperately needs refuge from a stalker determined to see her dead.

As they fight to stay alive and catch the killer, they struggle to resolve the guilt of their past pleasures. But they can't deny that what was once a spark is now a flame burning out of control. To possess Delaney - body and soul - Tyler must heal her pain and thwart the evil that's a mere breath behind her.

    I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.

    "I can’t believe it"

    I’m such a fan of this series. As soon as it was available for pre-order I immediately ordered it. I'm so accustomed to hot dominate men with intense sexual escapades and a damsel in distress. I got a hot man of course. I also got a damsel in distress. I got NONE of the chemistry I had got in the previous 5 books. Please don’t write a book just to get another one out there. I want the intensity of previous books. Not a “filler” book.

    This one felt like one just put together to appease the demand. It doesn’t stand out like the others did. It’s a very predictable book with predictable sexual situations. In my opinion I wasted my credit and that’s something I would have never thought I’d say on this series.
    Don't waste your credit on this one. It's just too insipid.

    "Finally, Tyler!"

    Another damsel in distress seeks protection from a smokin'-hot, big, strong alpha male. Was that a complaint? No, not at all. While all of the books in this series are HOT and steamy, this one is a little tamer in some ways. This one is not about how the woman needs to either change her perceptions and accept that her man must have her his way or hit the highway, and I liked that it was more of an emotion-driven book with great sex than a sex-driven book with some emotions thrown in as accessories. Not that those types of books don't have their time and place, but I guess I was more in the mood for this one right now.

    I have been waiting for Tyler to have a HEA since Delicious. When his old "friend," Delaney, shows up on his front door with some heavy personal drama and in imminent danger, Tyler mans up and deals. They have a short period of time to get over their past hurts and trust each other in order to survive the mess Delaney has found herself in. Their connection is still there, and that leads them down the right road, mostly. I was interested in the interactions with the couples from the previous books and the foreshadowing of the next one which I will automatically put in the cart.

    Again, this is a great series. It's very well-written, and Lexi Maynard is fast becoming one of my favorites to listen to.

    "A 3.5 STAR LISTEN - ENJOYABLE BUT NOT HER BEST"

    At the start of this I was quite enjoying it, as I had done with all the previous books in the series, but sadly it soon became a bit repetitive and I slowly became disinterested with the characters and the outcome then halfway through it picked up again.

    It was a totally implausible cheesy plot but, as with a lot of these types of books, it had it's good parts and so it was also hot, entertaining and enjoyable about memories, forgiveness and fresh starts.

    That is apart from my 2 main eye-rolling bugs - 1) Del's initial and continual mental insecurities of Tyler and then Tyler's mental anguish of how can he show her he's changed over and over and over again. Then 2) Del - why didn't she initially find a way to contact him after 'that night' (no spoilers here) and one minute she was so strong and clever then the next minute she did stupid stupid things and needed Tyler to help her out. (But I guess if it was written my way it would all of been over by page 50 !!).

    Worth a credit? It was a yes - no - yes listen but if you've listened to the others in the series then why stop now and I guess it's a YES from me.

    "So Good."

    I was looking forward to Tyler's story. You many of the couple from past books join in this book to help Tyler so you get a good little update on some of the couples. There was a lot more action in this book but it still had the steamy scenes you have come to love from Shayla Black. Totally worth the credit.

    Story
    "Excellent Continuation Series Fantastic Hot Scenes"
    What did you love best about Mine to Hold?

    A previous relationship explains our pal Tyler a bit more.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was tender. Like all of the men in this series-Tyler evolves and knows what he wants right away. Also, while the love scenes ARE hot, there is not the overload (barely any) BDSM that is prevalent in books today. This is a fantastic 'normal' relationship with plenty of sparks without whips.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Most memorable is the scene at Ben's with Tyler's intensity/helplessness as Del is attacked.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, yes, yes!


    Any additional comments?

    I don't know if the author realizes it or not but it is very repetitive. Every 10-15 minutes one of the characters 'reminds' the reader why they are in this situation/the reason for the story...I feel like I'm being drummed on the head with the why. The initial explanation and maybe a reminder or two later in the book is more than sufficient. Fill the space with more action or romance.

    I LOVE Shayla Black's Wicked Series and beg her to keep writing/recording them!

    "Not like the others..."
    What would have made Mine to Hold better?

    If there wasn't a child involved in the story, it might make this story better. I've read all of the Wicked Series and this one doesn't hold a candle to the others in any way. It's horrible. So horrible that I can't stand to make it all of the way through Chapter 2.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Lexi Maynard?

    I love Lexi Maynard and wish should would be the narrator for all of the audio books I listen to. Matter of fact, I've search for audio books just because of her.

    "MY FAVORITE!!!!"

    Okay so I loved Tyler, he was great! With so many surprises for him and so much he really made a lot of concessions throughout the plot line. Some of the story line was somewhat predictable or at least I'd guessed a bit of it, but so good. I enjoyed this one so much! Shayla Black is an excellent author and her stories are so good. I've enjoyed this series over all though this book is my fav...I think :) Can't wait to hear Xander's book next. He is an interesting character. Delany is a strong and independent woman, I hate weak women and this series is full of great ladies. Delany is strong and honorable. Her internal struggles were understandable with everything she'd gone through. I enjoyed the cameos form the previous characters and listened to this story with rapped attention.

    Lexi Maynard is a great narrator, she is able to really keep the voices distinct and seems to change them in each book for the character she is portraying. I enjoyed listening to her bring those voices back with the previous people too.

    I loved this story I was so happy for Tyler. This story had it all great sex scenes and a lot of action. I was touched when the story about Del and Tyler started and how she had his baby. This is one of my favorites in this series
