ღ we find our self-right were we left off in Capture. The lady in red survive her fall. Fiore finds herself in Monster bed & he doesn’t look like happy camper to say the least

➳ These two have my emotions all over the place. Monster more than anything.. I don’t know if I wanna hate him or love him. Geez how I hate that damn box… Even more for Fiore

Once again this is dark. It’s not romantic really. It’s just a dark relationship, probably 95% Stockholm syndrome and 5% lust, but if you’re into that dynamic it’s a great read! The cliffhangers kill me, and I can’t wait for the next book to come out in November even though I’ll probably be in a mood until then. GIVE

Fiore and Montster's story continues with them battling for what this is between them. Is it a relationship, are the boyfriend and girlfriend?
This story is so good!

Fiore thought she died, but that can't be right.  She is in too much pain to be dead.

When Fiore wakes she is right back where she started.....with Monster.  She does not know how she survived that fall, but as fate would have it she did.  Now she must make the best of the situation.  Monster has made it clear, she is ..... his.  She will not get away again.

Monster forces Fiore's hand and she signs over her soul to the devil himself...Monster.  Now he owns her body, soul and even her mind.  W

The cliffhanger struggle is real

He looks down at me, his steel grey eyes focusing on my face. “I should feel bad for putting you in the box. I should say that I’m sorry, but that would be a lie. I’m not sorry.”

Status update: I still don't like Arsen, but I no longer wish a painful, fiery death on him. I DO still wish Fiore/Katherine could escape him. And her brother. Escape them both and go be her own woman. Make her own friends. Go to college. Not be a toy or a pet or a servant or a slave. Be f

I am loving this series so much. I love dark romance, and Olivia Ryann aka Vivian Wood has become a favorite author of mine. She is pretty much a one click author. She just knows how to lure a reader in with how she creates these worlds, and characters that just hook you.

That being said, Covet picks up where book two leaves off. Did Fiore finally get away from Monster? Is it possible for their relationship to go darker? There is this dark side to Arsen that I admit lures me in. He can be so dark

So dark and so page turning good. Fiore is starting to develop feelings for Monster aka Arsen and that can't be good for either of them. This series has my head spinning and I can not get enough of it. Be aware there is a cliffhanger which makes the anticipation all that much better. ...more

Omg what a story!!

I've read all these stories in this series and each freaking one get's only better and better. I don't think I ever want this series to stop I'd be happy if it just kept right on going. Although, I think Olivia might get a little bit tired lol. This picks up from when Fiore is trying to get away from "monster" only to realize there's no getting away and boy is she in serious trouble. I want to think this is when his feelings have changed towards her, but time will tell hopefull

that girl has no backbone, he humiliates her in the worst ways possible and she doesnt even put up a fight, no silent treatment, no nothing, just one pathetic rug under his legs, and than her brother shows actual threats of sexual assault and she keeps her mouth shot? how f*** is that? everything about the heroine is WRONG.

“He’s just…like he is. Passionate, enraging, and completely fucking insane. And me? I’m just the naive little girl who happens to be owned by him.”

Covet is the third book in Olivia Ryann’s dark mafia captive romance series. This book continues the saga of Katherine Carolla (Fiore) and Arsen (“Monster”). At the conclusion of Ryann’s last book, Control, Fiore has fallen from a cliff. We are literally with a cliffhanger. This book begins where that left off. It isn’t a spoiler, per se, that Fiore h

Omg! This book is a first for me and at that it’s Book 3. Monster has his prize bought from a slave auction, sold by her family.... He has literally enslaved her and treats her as a pet. While without realizing he has found how HIGH PRIESTESS. Years ago his brother Damon read his cards and this woman will hold all the cards for him and his glory. Fiore or Kathryn or Kit Kat is falling for her Monster as well. While he scares the hell out of her the sex that they have is something that surprises ...more

Yes. Yes. Yes.
Olivia Ryan has thrown down the gauntlet of intensity!
The third book in the dark, captivatingly twisted, supremely heat inducing and suspenseful Cherish Series, I could feel the dark and confusing emotions swirling throughout this one! Bring it on!

Monster and Fiore's complicated lives take them to new and raw heights, neither knows what to do with. Especially when families start putting ideas into their heads- sometimes ones they have no control over.

Crime pays, especially when

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

Wow--what a cliffhanger! If I could, I would rate this a 5++. Riveting, action-packed and suspenseful! This Mafia romance was impossible to put down, and it will have you on the edge of your seat while leaving you intrigued and speculating what’s next, but it is jaw-dropping good! This book is one hot as hell, intriguing and twisted dark romance! It is dark with gritty gruesome details; murder, mystery, drama, intrigue, suspense, Mafia,

This series is riveting! It’s the third installment in the Cherish series and it gets more and more intense!

Fiore, is sold by her family and bought at an auction by a man she refers to as Monster. She’s held captive in a gilded cage and rewarded for her good behavior and sexual submissions.

I can best sum up the relationship as cat a mouse. The chase is thrilling and all the more rewarding. Monster, named Arsen is known in the crime realm and has his heart set on the “Big Easy” New Orleans. He

There is nothing I can say about this series that hasn't already been said, it's just awesome and riveting with the spot on flawless writing, characters that are written with such precision and attention to detail, I swoon at the romantic passion and feel every emotion of the hurt and darkness lurking within and while it wasn't easy to read at times it had that pull that draws you into the story begging for more.

Carla's Five Star Review

Covet is book three in the Cherish series. In order to avoid confusion, you need to read the previous books in the series before jumping into this one. Also, be advised, this is a dark read and not for everyone.

Covet picks up right where Control left off. Fiore has survived her jump from the cliff and is once again under Monster's control. As the story progresses, something unbelievable occurs. Fiore starts to feel something other than fear and hate where Monster is conce

Covet, Book 3 of the Cherish Series is a Dark Mafia Captive Romance not for the faint of heart. As it is stated, this is a DARK ROMANCE with DARK themes that may trigger some. Read at your own risk.

Covet starts off where Control (Book 2) left off. As you recall it left us in a huge cliffhanger. Covet didn't disappoint. We got a little more development in Fiore and Arden's relationship. A lot more. Monster (Arden) doesn't want to have feelings for Fiore. His plan was concrete. He would kill her s

Wow, where do I start? After the stunt Fiore pulled she’s lucky she’s not in her box right now. The more that Monster and Fiore are together the feelings are coming to the surface and Fiore doesn’t know what to do. What happens when you begin to fall for your captor? You know it’s all kinds of wrong, but feels so good. It’s almost like Stockholm syndrome, but deeper. When Fiore accepts a challenge she is rewarded and is stunned to see her prize. Monster is confused, he’s feeling things he should ...more

The villain in this third part is becoming deranged with possessiveness, and poor Fiore is getting the brunt of it. Escape is elusive and her waning attempts at it result in violence from her captor.

This time, we get to see the mob boss involving an unwilling Fiore in his sleazy schemes, also another glimpse into his twisted and bloody past. Fiore's past is no easier, I was aghast at her gloomy upbringing. Poor girl. Nobody loves her the right way.

Kinky passion mixes with domination and terrible

I read Covet in one sitting and let me tell you it is a page turner! This series is dark, but is absolutely fantastic! Fiore and Monster have me hooked and I can't get enough of them.

Covet picks right up where book two left off. Did Fiore survive her jump? Did she get away from Monster? Can she be free?

Well she certainly survived her jump, but she landed herself to wake up in Arsen's aka Monsters bed. He's dark, disturbed, twisted, yet he's alluring, has tender moments, is giv

In „Covet“ Arsen and Fiore’s story continues and becomes darker with every twist and turn. My heart broke again and again as I got glimpses of their past while reading. Sometimes I even cried because of the sadness they exude.
There is this horrible, sinister side of Arsen that I find so hard to accept.. And then there is this twisted, tender spot he seems to be developing for Fiore.
Fiore on the other hand is strong and weak at the same time… taking so many punches from all sides that it seems in

reaped upon the life of in this case the daughter, Katherine Carolla who was bartered and sold as if she was nothing but property.
The "Monster" that holds the pretty bird in the gilded cage has a long history of violence as he makes his way to the top of the food chain.

Not everything we plan on works as we've planned and what starts out a ploy to show the other heads of families his strength by the humiliation of a young woman of an old powerful boss. Just maybe the Monster
