- I really like Belinda's writing and how well it all flows
- Love how Belinda writes the human and wolf as two separate people
- The main male character, Mason, is a guy you will straight away fall for
- This book wasn't what I was expecting.
- There isn't much action but plenty of getting to know the characters more.
- It went in a direction that I wasn't expecting
Without Mercy, the first in this series, was a very short book at 24 pages but one that I quickly become engrossed in. B ...more

RECEIVED: Reviewing for Author
Oh how I wish the Mystic Wolves novellas were longer, I get so into the story and characters and then it ends. Belinda Boring really knows how to draw me into her story by getting into the emotional side of the characters.
Cherished starts off where the first novella left off and I was excited to get to know more about Darcy and her alpha; Mason a lot more. This novella was focused ...more
Anyway, now that I got the begging out of the way. I remember what I loved about Darcy and Mason 'sigh' what a romantic couple they are. Can ...more

Mason puts his own grief aside to comfort Darcy. He is hurting just as much as she is, if not more, but you would never know it. Being a man ...more
This is the ultimate love story!
Belinda has again brought us Darcy, the incredible heroine from book one. In Cherished, she is struggling to come to terms with the loss of her friend and soon-to-be mate's sister and her feelings of responsibility for that loss. Mason is magnificent! He is the man that all men (should) strive to be. Compassionate, responsible, fair, honest, passionate, loyal, and honorable, of course it doesn't hurt that he is gorgeous!
Belinda has created characte ...more
Darcy is now at war with herself over the events of the previous evening. How can the Alpha male of the pack, loving and tender but hard-core tough, Mason, still want her after what happened? How can she be expected to uphold the high standards as ma ...more
Cherished follows on from Without Mercy just perfectly, it centres around Darcy and Mason and all the emotions they are both feeling after such a great loss of Jasmine the night before.
The book gives the reader an insight into the world of the wolves and their pack, shows us how things are run and what is expected o ...more
Now I really enjoyed the fierce nature of the beast in the first book, and the nature was ever present in this one as well. When they had the initial start in the forest scene, wow!
I also loved the chemistry between Darcy and Mason. You just know they are made for one another.
I wasn't crazy about the pity party though. I felt it made Mason look a little weak. I like a sensitive guy, but when is it whiny ...more
The characters are great and the plot is solid. It takes hold and hangs on, moving you along and at the end it feels like you just read a full length no ...more
Love the cover, especially the blue eyes. It's a cute story but it's too short and the story goes in circles. It's lacking in story line. I got this story for free from Belinda Boring for an honest review. It's a quick read. I enjoy short books when there is enough of a story line but this didn't have it. It was just a story to show how Mason cherished Darcy even after his sister's death. I wish it had been a bit longer and that there had been interaction between the two main characters and othe ...more
A lot of emotions going on. It was another great read in this series. I'm really looking forward to read the next one.
