Editorial Reviews


This is the kind of love story that stays with you.  The writing is stellar, the love scenes sexy and emotional. It has the perfect balance of drama, heart-wrenching romance, and just the sweetest love story in Cherry Girl.
This is a wonderful story, and any and all comparisons to the preceding books in The Blackstone Affair series are quite all right with me. :) Language, locations, alpha-guy, beautiful girl, sizzling sex...see, all good things to read more of! Neil is an enticing mixture of sentimental, considerate, responsible, and sexy! For some reason Raine Miller's dirty-talking British blokes are so fun to read!  I'm looking at Cherry Girl like a surprise gift.
My final thought is that this is Raine Miller at her best. A true gem. You will laugh you will cry (both happy and sad tears) you will love, get turned on and ultimately, be completely consumed by Cherry Girl.
I loved this story from beginning to end and every high and low in between!

 No need to say much other than...just a beautiful love story involving Neil and his Cherry Girl who are characters we met briefly throughout The Blackstone Affair series.  I am a huge fan of Raine her writing style. She has a way of making you fall in love with her characters. You almost feel like you know them personally when she's done.

Verdict: Cherry Girl is a must read if you loved the rest of The Blackstone Affair series!! I have always wondered about this couple as we always saw glimpses of them throughout Brynne and Ethan's story but getting a play by play of how Neil and Elaina came to be from the start was... SO. WORTH. IT.

From the Author

The Blackstone Affair is a series, meant to be read in order.  Reading order:
Book 1 = Naked 
Book 2 = All In 
Book 3 = Eyes Wide Open
Book 4 = Rare and Precious Things
Cherry Girl is a spinoff/standalone and can be best read between books 3 and 4 of The Blackstone Affair, but it is not necessary to do so.

I sat down and started reading this book yesterday morning and could not stop until it I finished it. I read the entire book in one sitting. It was excellent. After having read Cherry Girl, all I have to say is that I love Neil McManus just as much as I love Ethan Blackstone!!! Wow!! Oh Wow!! Elaina and Brynne are two very lucky women to have such men love them as deeply as Neil and Ethan love them.

Cherry Girl was an extremely powerful love story, and went on to prove that true love really does stand the test of time, no matter what fate may throw in its path. This story goes to show that it is absolutely true that "And of these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love."

Now, I am dying to read the next chapter in Neil and Elaina's story just as much as I am dying to read Rare and Precious Things, the next chapter in Ethan and Brynne's story. Oh, and please let me not forget to add how much I am dying to read Ivan and Gabrielle's story!!!

If you are looking for an extremely well written book that is heartwarming, heart-wrenching at times, and extremely emotional all the time, then Cherry Girl is the book for you. Yes, you can read it without having read any of the other books in the Blackstone Affair, although I highly employ you to read the all the books in the Blackstone Affair as well, because you will not be disappointed. Raine Miller never disappoints her fans. She is a phenomenal writer and always gives her readers her best. Cherry Girl was absolutely phenomenal, and I thank Raine Miller for sharing Neil and Elaina's story with us, and I hope to continue to read about them along with the rest of the other characters in the Blackstone Affair in future books. I am also hoping that Ian Morrison gets his own story.

Very well done, Raine Miller!! Very well, indeed!!

Cherry Girl is another beautiful story from Raine Miller. This lady is a rock star in my opinion in that I have loved every book she's written. This is a standalone book that introduces us to Neil McManus and Elaina Morrison, two characters that we are introduced to in Raine's Blackstone series. If you've read the Blackstone series, we briefly meet Neil there as Ethan's right hand man working at Blackstone Security. In Cherry Girl, we get the full Neil, in all his beautiful glory.

Neil and Elaina first meet when a seventeen year old Neil comes to ten year old Elaina's house as a guest of her brother Ian. Elaina's family adopts Neil as a member of their family since Neil has no real home to speak of. Elaina falls in love with Neil when he winks at her across the table and so starts the love story. Neil joins the military after school and becomes SF special forces. When he is home on leave he visits with her family but primarily spends time with his girlfriend Cora who Elaina hates with a passion. All the while Neil stays in contact with Elaina but treats her like a sister. Tragedy strikes Elaina's family and her whole life changes.

When Elaina is 18 Neil comes home on leave and the dynamic between him and Elaina shifts. Their feelings for each other are finally expressed and their love story finally starts. But outside forces seek to tear them apart and Neil and Elaina are pulled apart for 5 long years. Fate decides to step in and bring these two back together and their road back to each other is just beautiful.

"I opened my eyes and traced over every part of his features, as beautiful now as he'd always been when he was a boy of seventeen and winked at me over the dinner table.

“Neil was beautiful to me when I laid my child’s eyes upon him for the first time. Purely and simply beautiful.”

When I finished this book I was speechless for words. The emotions, nostalgia, and the journey Neil and Elaina endured touched my soul. This is Raine Miller at her best. Just when I thought she couldn’t get any better she writes this book that filled me with so much love and emotion. I just love their story. I felt as if I was there with them living every single moment, the good ones and the bad ones.
Elaina has been in love with Neil since forever. In fact she doesn’t remember not loving him.
The book also has lots of humor and we get to see Ethan as a secondary character before he met Brynne.
The steamy scenes Raine Miller style with lots of steam and love, always emotional, intimacy at its best.
I highly recommend this book and even if you haven’t read the other Blackstone Affair books, this book can be read as a standalone.

I read this literally in a few hours, it would not let me put it down! There were no lagging parts what so ever! So fabulous! Just the right amount of angst, i hate a lot of it or when it is not resolved quick enough....this had none of that! Pure perfection!! I loved Neil, such a great guy! Omg every girl should have a Neil. We got to see a little bit of Ethan Blackstone which was fun! Who knew he was so funny!
No cheating or ridiculousness like that, just pure love....I need more Neil and Cherry!! *chants* se-cond book! Se-cond book!
