Well, if you’ve been reading any of my prior reviews, you know how anxious I was for this book. Cherish is the fourth and final book in the Arsen and Fiore story. The third book left us on a cliffhanger: did Fiore shoot Tony or did she shoot Arsen?
From the outset of the story, that question is answered quickly. And, as this is the final book, you can imagine the answer. However, the question for this book revolves around love. Can Fiore and Arsen find love given the beginning of their story? Will Fiore ever see “Monster” as something more than that, a sociopathic monster? To be honest, I don’t want to even give you a little bit of the story. I’d rather you read the final book to find out the answer.
I loved this series. Even though, for me, it started out incomplete with the novella, Ryann built Arsen and Fiore’s story in a way that seemed believable for a dark romance. I will say that Arsen’s character surprises me in this book. Yes, Fiore has changed quite a bit from the 1st book in the series. She has gone from acting timid and naive to finding her strength. For me, Arsen is the true interest of the series. He goes through the biggest change, one that might make some people struggle with in the end.
As she loves to do, Olivia Ryann leaves us with a tantalizing tidbit at the end of the book. We now know we are getting Dryas’s story. I’m hoping we will see more Arsen and Fiore in it since it will be hard to let them go. I’m also ready for the rest of Damen’s story, introduced in Ryann’s Cards of Love book.
If dark romance is your thing, the type of romance that gets your heart pumping and panties wet, then you should read this series, especially this book, Cherish. It enslaves you from the start and sets you free in the end.
In love and romance,
