Cherished (Book 4 Wanted)

Cherished is Scott and Jessica's story and is expected to be published January 21, 2014.



Jessie Rhodes has been in love with Scott Reynolds for most of her life. But he ran away from her once, leaving her heartbroken.

When they find their way back to one another, things seem to fall into place, and they begin to plan their future together…

Until Scott’s ex-fiancĂ©e deceives them all. With yet another broken heart, it is Jessie’s turn to run away. During her retreat, she meets an intriguing man, and they form a bond that makes Jessie question everything.

Scott’s world collapses when the only girl he has ever loved disappears with no word on her whereabouts. When he finally discovers where Jessie has been hiding, he also learns of her new relationship.

Will deceit tear them apart? Or can Jessie and Scott survive their mistakes and choose to love and to cherish?

Cherished is the fourth book in the Wanted series.

****TEASER***


I think we need to celebrate the birth of the Wanted gang with a Cherished teaser.....
Y'all know the drill....this has not been edited and is subject to change before publishing.

How about a little Ari?

ADULT CONTENT!

Ari's POV

He closed his eyes and let out a breath as he shook his head. “Okay...I understand you’re married, with two kids now but really? Sex in the barn…at you nieces first birthday party?”

My father turned and looked at Jeff. “What in the hell is wrong with you Johnson?”

Jeff’s mouth dropped open and that’s when I knew I was in trouble. Don’t talk. Just don’t talk, Jeff.

“What? Why do you always assume it’s my fault?”

I stepped in-between Jeff and my father. “It’s okay, Jeff…let’s just head on back up…”

My dad gently pushed me out of the way as he pointed his finger at Jeff and said, “Because nine times out of ten…it’s always your fault.”

“Oh. Oh. Real nice. Well, it just so happens that this time it wasn’t my fault.” Jeff said as I tried desperately to get him to stop talking.

“Jeff, it’s okay really. I’m sure Ells and Gunner can give us a change of clothes and…”

“And why was my daughter sitting on top of you half naked you ass?”

Oh shit. Jeff has that look.

“First off, it was your daughter who propositioned me for sex in the first place.”

My mouth dropped open and I couldn’t move. He didn’t…just…say…that!

“Me being the good husband that I am, I wasn’t about to let her down so I brought her to the barn.”

Stop. Talking.

“We heard Garrett and Ari was half naked so I pushed her into Big Roy’s stale and Garrett walked in. Roy obviously was in a playful mood and he nudged Ari and she…well she…she lost her balance and…”

He’s gonna start laughing! Oh my god.

Jeff let out a small laugh as he tried to contain it. I don’t know what to be more pissed about. The fact that he just told my father we fucked in the barn or that he’s laughing.

My father just stood there staring at Jeff. “Jeff…son…there are some things you just don’t tell the father of your wife. You’ll start to understand this more when Grace grows up, but in the meantime, from now on…let’s just keep your sexual encounters with my daughter to yourself shall we?”

My father turned and walked away as I put my hands on hips and gave Jeff a what-the-fuck look.

  3. When you read Faithful, you will know who they are, but Jessica, Scott, and Gunner knew each other growing up. In Saved we meet Scott first when he came out to Jeff's farm to check it out. He was taking over for his dad. Jeff wanted to get into the business with horses. Jessica was mentioned first in Wanted. Ellie got jealous over something that happened with Gunner and Jessica. He said she was like a little sister to him.

  8. I relly want to see Scott crawl, please make him work harder for Jessie than any other guys did for their women. Jessie deserves it after so much time and pain since high school. Scott has been too weak. Make Scott learn to become a man afterall Josh did especially when he bluntly put Mindy in her place.

  12. I hope Scott has to cry & beg for another chance with Jessie. He should have been a better man. Hope Messieurs has the chance to put Chelsea in her place & maybe have a good girl fight.

    1. That should say hope Bessie has the chance to put Chelsea in her place.

    2. I think you are going to find that Scott being very drunk probably doesn't even know Jessie was there. Chels put on a show to drive Jessie away. Remember she was amazed at the understandable text message she got. I see a set up between Chelesea and some guy to break these two up.

    1. I don't think Josh got off too easy. In my opinion, Heather was the one who got off easy. She kept pushing him away and then acting jealous when he tried to move on, which she told him to do. Don't get me wrong, I love Josh and Heather, I'm just saying most guys wouldn't have put up with as much ad he did.

  24. I love the series and cannot wait for Cherished to come out. I absolutely adore Gunner and Josh, it is too hard for me to pick my favorite. I don't think it was Scott in bed with Chelsea, I think it was his brother, guess we will have to wait and see. I am wondering when we will get another teaser from Cherished. Keep up the great work Kelly.

  25. Tara I completely agree. As soon as I read it I was sure it was his brother & I hope Scott kicks his butt!

  26. I have just finished "Wanted", "Saved" and "Faithful" in 9 days. I can't wait for "Cherished". I love your work Kelly. Am starting "Broken" tomorrow. I had a giggle in "Faithful" when I read Gunner using the term "Sugar Stamp" as I follow Gary Taylor on FB and I know how fond he is of that term.

  27. Kelly I just wanted to say I am in love with everyone of your books. I started reading them in early October and since then I've read all your books twice and thinking about reading them all again! I can't wait until you have more books out you're just such an amazing writer words just can't explain how much I'm in love with your books! You're doing an amazing job! Keep writing!

  28. I need to read cherished!! Please anyone have a link?? I live in a place where the bookstore doesn't hold the wanted series. I am almost done with believe and I cant wait to read cherished. Ive never in my whole life been attached to a book as much as I have been with this series. Every emotion, every feeling I lived with these characters. Scott and Jessie, Scott was drunk and did a mistake. trusting this guy will be hard again for Jessie I just hope these two stubborn people come to their senses in the end.
