BOOK Love Cherish Me

Love Cherish MeY her captor to a blue eyed bounty hunter a dark skinned gunslinger called El Lobo the wolf A man who could kill in cold blood then take her with fire and tenderness when she whispered to him Whew This book took me on such a roller coaster I have mixed feelings about it At times I loved it and at times I hated it But all in all I was so intrigued by the ever growing plot and the new twists and turns of their relationship I gave it 4 stars based on the fact that I stayed up in the wee hours reading it and the book stuck with me after it was all said and doneSPOILERSI hated how wolf could be so cruel sometimes Very domineering chauvinistic and stubborn I also hated the stereotypes portrayed in this book Especially in writing in phonetics for mammy and the Chinamen in San Fran I also hated how she repeated the word countenance It became noticeable after a while to the point of annoying It would take me out of the book Alsothe attempted rapes on the heroine by many different men got very old and anti climactic after a while I also hated the turn of events at the end I was devestated and almost didn't want to keep reading With that being said There were a lot good sweet exciting and romantic partsthat made up for all the bad parts If you read this I can almost guarantee you won't be bored Nothing blasé it's either a love or hate it type of book
