Publisher's Summary

A doctor living a double life.

By day, Dr. Will Daley is one of Dallas's most eligible bachelors, but every night he dons his leathers as one of Sanctum's most desired Doms. He's sworn off looking for a long-term relationship but is captivated by the club's newest member, Bridget Slaten, even though they couldn't be more different. She comes from a world of privilege and he was raised in poverty. When he discovers she needs a date to her sister's wedding, he makes certain he's literally the only man for the job.

A woman no longer willing to live in the shadows.

For most of her life, Bridget hid herself behind her laptop. She can write romantic, sensuous lives for her characters but not herself. Having Master Will as her date to the wedding is a thrilling prospect but he has a special request. He wants her to accept two weeks of his services as a Dom, a lover, and expert in BDSM, and that is an offer she can't refuse. Their sexual chemistry is undeniable, but it's in the tender moments that Bridget realizes she's falling for a man who might never trust her with his heart.

A love strong enough to cherish.

Together in paradise for a week, Will realizes he can't imagine his life without Bridget. As the wedding approaches, ghosts from their past come back to haunt them and threaten to ruin the peace they've found. With everything exposed, they will have to risk it all to claim the love that can set them both free.

Wasn’t Sure at First-But OMG!

Don’t miss this one, it should have been a full length. This had so much emotion, including secondary characters. I absolutely love it.

Almost burned out my earbuds.

Lexi Blake always writes a good story and Ryan West is a superlative narrator. He does a great job with women's voices as well as men's voices and brings emotion to the story. Don't miss this one, it's well worth a credit.

Sweet D/s book with strong likeable characters.

I often find the women in D/s books overly hung up on their insecurities and the doms a little to mushy at the end, BUT this book has a great story, with really likeable characters and some humor to go along with it.

Cantankerous and Surly find Love

What made the experience of listening to Cherished the most enjoyable?

The narrator, I am a huge fan of Ryan West. I was very excited to hear the good doctor was going to find the "perfect sub" and not slave.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Cherished?

The most memorable moment is when Will kidnaps Bridget from the wedding brunch. I absolutely love the care and attention Will put forth with trying to convince Bridget of his version of Love.

What does Ryan West bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The emotion that Ryan West is able to exude through his spoken work is wonderful. There are times when we read books the emotion goes unnoticed until a few paragraphs into a scene. However with this narration it was quite apparent when the characters were struggling to express or just plain ole expressing certain emotions.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I was just so happy that the characters found their version of "Happy Ending".

A fan of this series

This series does not "NEED" to be listened to in order although, I do recommend listening to the men with the golden handcuffs first for a better background on Bridgett and Dungeons Games for more background on Will.
