The Choice (Doms of Her Life: Heavenly Rising) by Shayla Black, Jenna Jacob, Isabella LaPearl

Heavenly Young doesn't have time for romance. The innocent nursing student is struggling to care for her ailing father, keep a roof over their head, and start a new career. But fate decides to complicate her world even more by putting two very different men in her path and forcing her to make a choice that will change her life forever.

Dr. Ken Beckman—vascular surgeon by day, super-alpha by night—has three hard-and-fast rules: Never date where he works, never touch vanillas, and never get tangled up with a virgin. But the moment he meets Heavenly, he aches to toss his scruples aside and claim the untouched beauty. She's not ready for someone like him…but he wants her too much to walk away—even though he's not the only man caught in her spell.

Seth Cooper, ex-cop turned private eye, isn't looking for a happily ever after, just a hot-and-sweaty good time. And the minute he claps eyes on Heavenly, he's all for coaxing the angel into his bed. But soon, she's so deep under his skin that he's willing to put his broken past behind him and turn his life upside down for her. But he's got competition…

When it came to helping friends, Beck and Seth were in sync. But now they're vying for the same girl, and the games get vicious—until they realize Heavenly is keeping secrets from them both. Will they call a truce and work together again before they both lose her for good?

Shayla, Isabella and Jenna...I love you guys so much! But I want to hate you for making me wait until 2019 for the continuation of the story! I love these characters and the storyline were amazing. The characters are complex and rich. I love being a part of story in reading them. I just hate having to wait...but I will because they and you are so worth it!! Until we meet again!! Muah!?

I love it when these three authors get together and create a story. The way these books are written, each of their personalities comes out in the character they author. But the editing is so well done the story is seamless, not broken like a lot of collaborative efforts. “I want to experience life.” She sighed and shook her head. “I mean really experience it.” The Choice is tasked with a lot of background story. But without that, I think we as readers would feel incomplete and lost. I confess, Beck is my absolute favorite of the trio. His behavior is so uncharacteristic, but necessary and hysterical. Seth for once is the mor aggressive of the men, he’s a knight in shining armor. Heavenly, my heart bleeds for her. She is starting out as a palette of black and white and very few shades of grey. We spend time waiting for the hammer to drop (no pun intended, really). I look forward to watching her come into her own, she will be a force to be reckoned with. I can’t wait for the next installment of this series! Is it 2019 yet?

This is one of my favorite series and if you haven't read it you should. Although this is technically the fourth book in the series, it can be read as a standalone. This is Heavenly, Beck and Seth’s story. It is one emotional ride from start to finish. Heavenly is a young woman with a lot on her plate. She is taking care of her ailing father, studying to be a nurse and working as a volunteer in the hospital. Beck is a highly skilled surgeon who upon seeing Heavenly for the first time, decides to do everything in his power to have her. Seth is a private eye, who has also staked his claim on Heavenly. Things would be easy for her if the two men got along but unfortunately that could not be farther from the truth. Beck and Seth cannot stand one another and over the course of trying to win Heavenly's affections, they pull out all the stops to try to block the other from succeeding in wooing her. It feels like they are two male orangutans beating their chests before going into battle for their mate. Over the course of getting to know Heavenly, the two men finally realize that all is not as it seems. Can the men put their animosity aside and forge a relationship with Heavenly or will they lose her? This is one encompassing read filled with enticing characters and some old friends from the previous books. I have to mention Zelda as she will have you laughing and asking where did the authors come up with the idea for her. The only issue is that it ends in a cliffhanger but with these three talented authors, the next book will definitely be worth the wait and I look forward to reading it! This is one story to one click and add to your shelf. I volunteered to read an arc of this book.

Wow! Once you pick up this book, it is hard to put down. I think this is the first book I have read by three different writers. I have to say, that while reading this book, that thought NEVER crosses your mind. Beck, Seth, and Heavenly fit so well together. Their characters are so distinct and we'll developed. They each had information they were holding close to their chests. Heavenly flows between an air of innocence and naivete, and being flirty and sexy. Her transitions are smooth and seamless. Seth and Beck have issues they need to work through with each other. This is book is funny, sweet, sexy, and so intriguing, I don't even hate that it has a cliffhanger. And I truly HATE cliffhangers. But, I will be waiting with bated breath for the next installment to this threesome story. I voluntarily read and reviewed the Advanced Reader Copy of this book.

Enchantingly raw! A story of mix-matched lifestyles being forced to mesh together when matters of the heart become involved. If you read the earlier books in Raine's Doms of her Life series, you'll recognize Beck and Seth as good friends of Macen, Raine and Liam. They both played pivotal parts in that earlier story line and you'll already understand their lifestyle greatly from reading those. If you didn't, you'll still be able to pick up what's going on without much trouble, but I don't think I'd have enjoyed the nuance of having them compete over a woman as much if I hadn't met them earlier. The main characters catch our attention quickly and the story line is laid out well to keep us entertained. There are parts where it drags a bit, and my least favorite part of the book was the fact that it goes back and forth in time. I really would have enjoyed it more if it has just gone chronologically along instead of flipping back and forth. There are also some plot holes from the past that are left blank, but I'm assuming those are going to become known to us in the future books. Overall, I really enjoyed the players in this story and was invested until the end in seeing a happy ending. Looking forward to more to come! Nursing student Heavenly Young has a lot on her plate. She's working as much as possible to make ends meet with a full-time school schedule and a very sick father to care for. She doesn't have time to fit one more thing into her jam packed days, but tell that to her heart when she meets not one, but two intriguing men who catch her attention and make her want to spend the day in their arms! Dr. Ken (Beck) Beckman works hard as a vascular surgeon by day and plays hard as a dominant at night. He's a good friend of Macen's and has been in the lifestyle for many years. He likes his women pliant, ready to play and seasoned in the lifestyle. He has three rules he lives by ... no vanilla, no virgins, no newbies. So imagine his surprise when he's taken under the spell of this gorgeous, young nursing student who seems too good to live in his big bad world. He's willing to change a lot in order to have her in his life! Ex cop, turned private investigator Seth Cooper is in town helping his good friend Liam out when he encounters Heavenly and is instantly enchanted. He's the man who's always out for a good time and never looking for a commitment, and when he sees her, his first thoughts are to get her into his bed, but as he gets to know her, he realizes she's not anything like the women he plays with. She's the real deal ... and he can't wait to give her the world!

Literally just finished this story! And as I was thinking “how the hell am I going to write a review for all this?” Eve’s ‘Let Me Blow Ya Mind’ started playing in my head. Because truthfully, this story blew my mind!! From Heavenly’s innocent naïveté, to Seth’s flirty and Beck’s Dom, everything about this story just kept me enthralled from page 1! And I couldn’t decide which Dom I liked more for Heavenly! And the more I read ménage, the more I find that I truly love when it’s about 3 people (usually MFM) who are totally in love with each other, rather than them just trying something new. But OMG I need The Chase NOW!!!

This is the beginning of a new series but it also starts where Doms of her life series ends. Heavenly Young is a nursing student that helps Raine during her ordeal and Dr Kenneth “beck”Beckman and Seth Cooper are the two Doms that are helping Raine at that time that also fall for Heavenly. The back story for all three of these characters are so wonderfully written and you are just wanting to keep reading and not putting the book down. These three authors know how to write a story so you are intrigued. There is a cliff hanger and know we have to wait for the next installment but with these books it will definitely be worth the wait.

"Life had beaten her bloody for years." Wow! Honestly, if I hadn't seen the cover I wouldn't have believed that this book was written by three different authors, it's totally seamless, flowing so smoothly that you get lost in the story immediately. The story begins near the end, throwing me right in the middle of a dramatic scene that had my jaw dropping and my eyebrows raising. And then the authors took me back in time to fill in the blanks and flesh out the characters. I admit that it really ramped up my excitement to have a taste of what was to come and I anxiously anticipated getting there again so I could see what happened next. But I'm glad that it was a long journey. The buildup was delicious and the sexual tension intense as the characters fought to control their frustration and their lust. The story is told in multiple POV and being inside each of their heads as they fantasized about each other had me needing a cold shower. I fell for both Beck & Seth myself so I could totally understand Heavenly's reluctance to make a 'choice' that would result in losing either of them. But how long would she be able to keep them waiting before she risks losing them both? Juggling her overwhelming responsibilities and keeping her secrets is exhausting. How much longer will she be able to keep the balls in the air before they all come crashing down? It wasn't until I finished reading The Choice that I learned about another series, Doms of Her Life: Raine Falling that is about some of the characters I met in this story. I found them really intriguing and plan to go back and read it later. I really enjoyed taking this eye-opening journey with such diverse characters. Seeing things through their eyes was interesting, especially during those times when I knew they had it wrong and I was unable to set them straight. I had to just bite my lip and watch the events play out as they were meant to, trusting that eventually, all the pieces would fall into place. And by the way, the pieces are still lining up because this isn't the end of the story, it's only part one. And trust me, you aren't being short-changed, this book is very long. I can't wait to spend more time with these amazing characters and look forward to the next installment. The line forms here...

Wow, what can I say? This book totally sucked me in. Between two hot, extremely alpha men and one very innocent sweet woman, you can’t put it down to find out what happens next. There were times a laughed quite a bit, and times I kinda yelled at them. Their chemistry was off the charts (hot, hot, hot!). There was so much going on, and I knew it wouldn’t all fit in one book, but didn’t stop me from yelling when it ended lol. I so can’t wait for the next one in the series!!!

THE CHOICE by Shayla Black, Jenna Jacob & Isabella LaPearl is the First book in Doms of Her Life: Heavenly Rising Series. This is the story of Heavenly Young, Ken Beckman and Seth Cooper. Heavenly is a hard working young women who is also looking after her dad. Heavenly never really had time for fun or one night stands and is just an innocent when it comes to the intimate part of life. But she thought to change that with her good friend River Kendall but he makes her see that there is only friendship there and points to Beck and Seth...either one of them would be hot for her. But Heavenly is drawn and attracted to both men who are way over her experience level. But Beck and Seth are trying to get her attention going so far as to almost act like kids over a toy they both want. But there is more to Heavenly and both Seth and Beck want to be there for her. This book is very hard to put down and it does end to set up the next book in their continuing story! Can't wait for it!

I am so glad authors, Shayla Black, Jenna Jacob and Isabella LaPearl decided to write Heavenly's story. Their writing talents combine perfectly when telling this story. I felt so connected to Heavenly that I could identify with her feelings, concerns and happy moments. You know it's a great book when you become so immersed in the story that you feel the characters. This is a very well-written, well-plotted and executed book. I look forward to finding out what happens next to Heavenly, Beck and Seth.

It was so amazing to go back into this world. When I returned to reading a few years ago, the Doms of Her Life books was one of the first series I picked up. I fell in love with this world of menage and these characters. I was sad when Hammer, Raine and Liam's journey came to an end, but so excited to see that Heavenly, Beck and Seth were getting their story told! This book was worth the wait! This is a long book which I absolutely ate up! I relished in the description and the well written story that unfolded before me. These 3 writers do a seamless job of telling this menage story. It's a story of true love between 3 people. Two men loving the same girl and Heavenly can't choose between her men, so they don't make her. This is book 1 of their story and I know we have a lot of ground yet to cover with this trio, but this book was absolutely delicious! It definitely left me wanting more of them and 2019 is too far away! Loved this book and can't wait to get more!

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads, so here is my review. Heavenly Young is a naïve young woman that knows nothing about love or being in love. with the way her mother left and her father being sick, she had to grow up really fast. She didn't get the chance to grow from a teenager to a young adult because she had to become her fathers caregiver. Now she is a volunteer at the hospital, taking internet classes to become a nurse and working a night job to help pay the bills and cover her Dads medicine. Beck and Seth were drawn to her from the moment they saw her. They haven't had feeling like this before and they each want her for themselves. So they will fight for her feelings, even play a few jokes on each other to win her over. Both men will figure out that they will have to work together to get Heavenly to see that they just want to protect her and help her. Can they work together to make that happen? Will she be able to let them in and tell the about her past? I found this story well written and I would not have known it was by three authors if I hadn't saw it with my own eyes. It flows very well and is a great story that will have you on the edge of you seat at times. There was a few places that dragged for me but not enough to make me stop reading. There is a big cliffhanger, so be prepared for that. I can't wait to see what happens next. And I need to go back and read Raine's books because I haven't read those yet. **Wicked Reads Review Team**

This book will have you laughing, crying and wanting more. The long awaited story of Heavenly, Beck and Seth. An extremely well written story which will pull you in from start to finish. Heavenly, is a naive woman who has lived through more than what most people could imagine. Beck, a surgeon with a past no one knows about and who just happens to be a sadist. Seth, a PI who is used to being in charge since he took over being head of his household when his father died. Can Beck and Seth win her love, or will they have to learn to be a team to get her? Shayla Black created a story which not only draws you in but you don't want to leave. I cannot wait for the next book to see what happens.
