Cherished (Includes: Delicious 1) by Maya Banks and Lauren Dane

The Book
Release Date: 7 August 2012

Exiled by Maya Banks

Enticed to the island paradise where an enigmatic prince is living in exile, beautiful, virginal Talia is introduced to a world of forbidden pleasure where the prince's every whim is fulfilled and her fantasies are rendered in exquisite detail. But when the prince is summoned back to fulfill his duty to his struggling country, reality is thrust upon Talia all too soon. She returns home, heartbroken, convinced she was a passing fancy for an idle ruler and his most trusted men. Until the day they arrive on her doorstep, determined to have her back where she belongs.

Sway by Lauren Dane. Book 1 of the Delicious series

Taken from Ms Dane's website - SWAY will be in the CHERISHED Duology with me and Maya Banks – both our books will have a contemporary BDSM theme. It’s also the start to my DELICIOUS series, the spin off from The Brown Siblings books. 

Levi Warner is an established, older man—wealthy, powerful, and above all, respectable. Then Levi meets Daisy, an uninhibited 24-year-old dance instructor and artist, not exactly the kind of woman Levi is accustomed to. But the young, free spirit, brings out something in him he only experienced in fantasies. When their scorching affair turns into something unexpectedly deeper, Levi finds himself torn between preserving his reputation, and exploring a wilder and much more satisfying kind of life.

My Opinion  5 STARS

This was a sweet yet erotic story.  Talia was just eighteen when she first met the prince of her home country.  Four years later after he has looked after her mothers treatment and paid for her to go to university has has summoned her to the island where he is currently in exile.

Prince alexander (Xander) has held a torch for Talia from the very first moment that he met her.  He has bided his time as she was still quite young when he first met her, but now is the time for him to get what he wants.  Her. He summons her to his island where he plans to not only spoil her but share her with his three closest friends.

Neither can stop the feelings that bubble up between them, and the other three men, Sebastian, Garon and Nico.  All the men fall for Talia and Talia for them.  They have many sex sessions together and alone, all of them there to cherish and love her.

The unrest in his home country comes to a head and in order to keep Talia safe he has to do what hurts both of them, he sends her away back to Paris to be with her mother.

Talia, heart-broken decides she is too strong to stay at home moping so decides to go on holiday with her mother.  Things are going well until Zander decides he wants her back.  

This was a brilliantly put together story that will have you hot under the collar and wondering why we can't all have four men to worship and cherish you.

Daisy is a strong yet uninhibited twenty four year old.  She holds many part-time jobs and is a brilliant artist yet is careful of her money, saving for her future. 

Levi is a wealthy man from a powerful and respected family and meets Daisy when he goes to a dance class.  He is immediately taken by her sensual beauty and her spirit.  Even though he is quite a bit older than her he is very taken by her straight approach and outgoing nature.

Daisy finds herself very attracted to Levi and knows she wants him.  Her bold approach gets her what she wants and they embark on a relationship that moves very quickly with the strongest feelings that either of them have ever felt before.  Whilst Daisy goes with the flow, Levi struggles with his feelings and almost keeps her hidden from the world, especially his family.

Upset with his attitude they break up, where-upon they are both miserable.  Levi is taught a lesson by his brother and the two are reunited.

A lovely love story and the beginning of the delicious series.  Well worth the read.
