It started with a game, a very different computer game, and a desire to know a life so intriguing and different from my own. I had just started to venture out with my own work at my father’s private investigating firm when our paths crossed on purpose. My purpose. I never expected things to go the way they did. I never expected him to be so nice and handsome. I couldn’t be ...more

I really struggled with this book all the way through. The writing was okay, but the story jumped so much, it drove me crazy. Not to mention the characters, who besides the polygamist, were very flat and uninteresting. There were areas that held my interest and that's why this book is a three for me. ...more

The polygamist community has always fascinated me. The lifestyle. 1 man with more than 1 wife. Several women sharing their husband. How do they all live together? Do the wives get jealous of each other? Are they all religious? how does it affect their children?
I’ve watch all the shows, TV dramas and reality TV around the polygamist communities and even the cults. It still fascinates me how people can live this kind of lifestyle.

This story is about a young nieve woman called Cass, who is a scatt

Meg's Review:
Jettie has done it again!

You know how everyone has those few authors that they will read anything from? No matter the novel? Jettie is one of those authors for me. She never disappoints. Every novel she puts out is a phenomenal work of the mind. She is a Must Read Author. This novel? No exception. It was fantastic! Can I be Picked please?

First let me say that I am one of the lucky ones that got to read this amazing book before release day.

It came to me a few chapters at a time and I was literally begging for more. I had several other books to read and review BUT couldn't get into any of them because my mind was only on Cass, Becker and Matt.
No lie, there were times out of no where my mind would wonder off and I would be playing out different scenarios in my head of what might happen next.

I love Jettie! All of her books make me think and wonder and feel ... so amazing. I love that Jettie is never afraid to write about a taboo topic, and she does it great.

I am more than slightly obsessed with Polygamy and Amish and all things foreign to my life. When Jettie first told me her book would feature a little Poly action I freaking flipped my lid with excitement. HELLO, I love it! I am also more than slightly obsessed with crime and murder and PI's .. this book was literally a match ma

Let me say I was one of the lucky ones who got to read this book first. I have always been a fan of Jettie's books. That woman knows how to write a good book. I read this book in chapters at a time and believe me it was very hard to continue reading other books because my mind would always go straight back to Picked. Once I received the ending, I could finally breathe! I really enjoyed this book from beginning to end it keeps you guessing how things will play out. The main characters Cass and Be ...more

3.5 stars

When I read the synopsis, I was like 'Holy shit! Polygamy!' but I was kind of hesitant to read it and I wanted to know how it would end before reading it, so that's what I did, I read the ending, and I was happy about how it ended.

The story started quite boring, but thankfully it didn't last long.

Rating a novel has always been a problem of mine, whether to rate a 3.5 story as 3 or 4. I wanted to rate this novel as 3.5 = 3, because of the love scenes and the writing style was kind of ju

gifted a copy for honest review . This one was different not your normal guy gets girl book . Becker is not like any guy Jettie has written that I have read and I love her asshole men but Becker was different love him. Cass wants Becker but can she have him ? Then you have lies and secrets being told . To find out how it all comes together you have to grab it .

Very different from our Jettie Woodruff, but pleasantly surprised. The intricacies of polygamy, and the representation of an individual. This was very good!

Throw every preconceived notion about polygamy out the window before reading this book. I mean it, just toss it. Go in with an open mind.
Only Jettie can make you fall for guys that you always said, "No freaking way! Never in a million years!" Um, hello, remember Drew???
This is the first book about multiple wives that I read and I was ready for an episode of Bad Girls Club or Real Housewives of Salt Lake City. Instead, what I got was a beautiful story about Cass and Becker and the unexpected lov

I've never read a book about the subject of men with multiple wives. I've always been curious about the subject even though I know I couldn't live that lifestyle. So when Jettie told us she was writing a book surrounding a game creater who lives this lifestyle, well I was like Ok, let's see how well my jealousy can handle this Lol As normal, Jettie did an amazing job and I loved it. I don't think there is any subject that Jettie can't write and turn into a 5 star read.

The blurb for this book pulled me in. I've always wondered about the Poligamy community, how do you devide your time between your wives, what do the wives get out of it, why do you need more than one wife. Cassie is a naive girl who has been sheltered by her father after a life changing event, she hates her job working with her dad but doesn't know how to tell him. Someone contacts her dad's PI firm to investigate if her sister is being held against her wishes by Becker who has 3 wives. Cassie i ...more

I was gifted this book for a honest review

I love all of Jetties books and this is no exception,she has a unique writing style and is never afraid to touch on taboo subjects which many would shy away from.

I just loved this book from the first chapter till the last,it was steamy full of lies and deceptions and you never knew where the next one was coming from.

The plot was, will she,won't she,will he,won't he!!!

A fantastic 5* read that will have you wishing for more.

My perspective. Picked was good for the first 80%. Not give star good, since there was a bit of hiccups, but it kept my interest, and the characters were engaging. I must be honest: I did not like Cass's BFF. She was self absorbed and more concerned about men than her best friend's feelings. The issues of loving a man with four wives was dealt with honestly and with compensable emotion.

So, why the low review? The last 15%. I've had rushed ending books before, but not anything as confusing as th

This book was strange, But awesome! The first few chapters of this book I was like what the hell am I reading? A video game couple really? It begins with a video game. But it's so so much more! Becker has 3 wife's. Cassie is fascinated by him, But she can't be number 4 she loves all the girls, But every time she see's him with one of them she want's to rip their hair out. She doesn't want to share. I had mixed feelings about Becker. He seemed to love her but he couldn't seem to put her first.

The heroine was ditzy with a side of scatterbrain which I thought was adorable. I usually hate characters like her but I admire her tenacity to not compromise in her beliefs. I know some of you might not get her but push through, it'll get better or at least it did for me. A lot of craziness happens all at once but it held my attention throughout. I don't know why I enjoyed this book so damn much but I guess I was in the mood for it. It would have been a solid 5 stars but I didn't like the whole ...more

I loved this book. It was light-hearted, funny and mysterious. Secrets surrounding Cass and whether Becker’s love for her was the exception or similar to that of his other three wives kept me entranced and glued to my Kindle. I really liked Cass and found her endearing. She was funny, flighty, bubbly, and genuine though she had issues for example her obsession with buying useless stuff on the home shopping network and was a total slob. Funny moments in the book really cheered me, for example, wh ...more

I am so happy to read this story. I loved it! So different than other books the concept was awesome and I love the way the story evolved. So many twist and turns. I loved the message in between the lines and maybe not soni between the lines. Love is different for everyone who are we to judge what is right for someone else. I really loved the heroine in story. She is strong yet not but she ultimate stuck to her guns.

I loved this book! It was a different story line and was intrigued prior to starting the book.

I loved the story, it has depth to it. The characters were believable and would be the type you'd want to have as a friend.

This is definitely a book I would recommend you read.
