Product Description

Fans of Covet by New York Times bestselling author Tracey Garvis Graves will be delighted by this novella-length sequel.

When Daniel Rush wakes up in the hospital after suffering a gunshot wound to the head, the last person he expects to see at his bedside is his ex-wife Jessica. Their marriage disintegrated after the death of their infant son Gabriel, and Daniel gave Jessie what he thought she wanted: the freedom to start over with someone else. But Daniel never updated his emergency contact information, and Jessie is the one who receives the call with the devastating news.

Daniel was Jessie’s one true love. Together since college, Jessie had dreams of raising a family with Daniel, and growing old together. When Gabriel died, Jessie buried those dreams with her beloved son and shut everyone out, including Daniel.

Daniel faces months of grueling rehabilitation and he’s going to need some help. Jessie is the last person anyone expects to volunteer, but this is her one chance to make amends, giving her and Daniel a shot at getting things right this time.

The road to recovery will be long and arduous. But with Jessie leading the way, Daniel just might be able to get his old life back.

Daniel knows how to covet. But can Jessie help him remember how to cherish?

*Please note that this is a novella-length sequel. Reading Covet before Cherish is highly recommended in order to enhance your reading pleasure.(less)

CONTENT WARNING: Grief after infant death.

Non-ranting part of the review first. CHERISH has a HEA, so romance fans can read the novella without fear. And though I haven't yet read COVET, I wasn't lost at all here, and was really enjoying in the story.

WAS, past tense. Certain scenes probably won't bother other readers but rather annoyed me.

Jessie goes out for a night at a restaurant with her sister and best friend. Daniel tries to police what she wears, says men will stare at her chest, and convinces her to bring a cardigan. Supposedly because it's "chilly" - or just trying to get her to cover her chest. Way to perpetuate rape culture, Daniel.

Anyway, the three women drink four bottles of wine between them, and travel via taxi safely home. All good. Then Jessie comes home to Daniel - and she can't stand without wobbling, and can't undress herself, so Daniel has to do it for her. That's not my issue. But Daniel finds Jessie's behaviour while thoroughly intoxicated "cute" and "endearing".

The author likely didn't mean to romanticise binge-drinking; she just needed a scene wherein Daniel realises he wants to shag Jessie again. (He doesn't do it until later, when she's sober and can non-dubiously consent.) I get that. But having grown up with an alcoholic..."cute" and "endearing" definitely do not come to mind to describe their behaviour. Alcoholism is a disease, and it's not funny.

People will defend the scene by claiming that Jessie isn't an alcoholic, so lighten the hell up, Tez; don't take your issues out on the book. (I'm not - I rate CHERISH three stars, which means "it's OK".) But from then on, I couldn't appreciate the novella as much.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cherish each moment with those you love! 1 November 2014
By DCT - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
4.5 heartfelt stars!!! This read made me happy, as this was the closure for Daniel that I craved when I finished Covet. I loved him from the moment he was introduced and wanted nothing but joy in his life. This is a journey that comes full circle for both Daniel and Jess, as his recovery mirrored so much of her own, just with different circumstances. I was proud of her dedication to Daniel and his recovery, and so touched by their dedication to each other, even after all they had been through. This was indeed the perfect ending for a wonderful guy. Thank you so much Tracey for giving us this precious conclusion to Daniels story.

This was a wonderful finish to a lovely story of two peoples lives twisting and turning with the fates. I thought it was a great ending to Daniel's story. I love happy ending tied up in a neat bow!

Short read and predictable but a good story. I Enjoyed Covet much more however Cherish enlightens readers of the whereabouts of the characters in Covet.
5.0 out of 5 stars Treat yourself! :) 8 November 2014

Daniel's story is not to be missed. Even though it's a short story, for anyone that read Covet, this story needed to be told/finished. Honestly Tracey writing is so engaging, compelling, real and wonderful, you cannot help but fall in love with her characters. You want to see it play out. You are rooting for them to find their way and be happy in the end. Get this and indulge!

If you haven't read Covet, do yourself a HUGE favor and read it! Read it first if you can, but know that Cherish could stand alone. I simply adore this author and her stories. I have read them all and will never miss one! Happy reading!

It doesn't help that the epilogue is... Look, epilogues are unnecessary. They're usually cheesier than the rest of the book, and while that's fine for other readers I can't enjoy it. Daniel and Jessie have remarried; they have a child who's alive, and Daniel's completely recovered from his traumatic brain injury with no permanent damage. He does have PTSD, though, so he quits being a traffic cop. Luckily for him, he gets to become a crime scene investigator instead. Even with his criminology degree, it seems strange to jump from traffic cop to CSI in one move. It's like a super-promotion, because dealing with the public is probably the worst job in the police biz.

And yes, people with traumatic brain injuries deserve to fully recover, and get remarried, and have another kid, and get a super-promotion. I just wonder how the story would've differed if Daniel did have permanent brain damage, and if they didn't have another baby.

But I'm probably in the minority when it comes to my views on this novella, so thanks for letting me rant.
