She wasn’t part of my original plan for revenge, but one glance at her and I was entranced. I followed her for weeks, observing her habits. I’ve been in her apartment numerous times, learning anything and everything I can about her. She’s become an obsession and I’ll do whatever it takes to make her mine.
It’s only a matter of time before I have her where I want her...
on her knees and at my mercy.
Soon, there will be no secrets between us.
Delude if I am not mistaken is Jacob Chance's fourth book. I feel pretty damn lucky to be one of those readers that has witnessed how amazing each story gets. I know I may sound repetitive in my review when it comes to this author but Chance has this way of writing a short story and giving me those strong characters, great story lines (dark, funny, suspenseful and erotic), and can give me that ending I want or pushes that emotion of leaving me hanging off a cliff. This story is no different, except he did prove me wrong when it came to changing my mind about a character I thought I would always despise.
Zack is one creepy stalker that we were introduced to in Quiver, he also has some mentions in TIED. His need for revenge made his character unlikable and one sick twisted son of a gun. I went into this story thinking there is no way I want this character to have any ounce of happiness. Somehow, Jacob pulled that damn bunny out of a hat and gave Zack a past that made him swoon-worthy. Will Zack be able to let go of his need for revenge, forget his past and come clean with all the secrets he has been keeping to even have a chance with the one woman who sees a different side of him?
Lana, is a beautiful character with a feeling of guilt that keeps her from falling in love. She likes to stay to herself so when she catches the attention of her new neighbor, their friendship slowly grows into this sexual connection that is so freaking hot. Lana is a smart woman so when the time comes to face the truth, will she be able to overlook the secrets Zack has been keeping from her? I found myself wanting that HEA for Lana.
I can't forget to mention that we do get glimpses of the other characters from Quake, Quiver and TIED and I can't wait to see what Jacob has in store for me (us) in his next book... Hopefully, it is Josh and Elle's story. Delude is a 5 Star Read!
Sobs fill the silence of the room. “Dad, leave mom alone,” I shout, pushing on his chest and shoving him back a couple of feet. Like a tenacious pit bull after a chew toy - this fucker just keeps coming.
Each time he comes back harder, finally snaking by me. Gripping her upper arm in his meaty fist, he digs his fingers deep into her skin, and uses his other arm to block me.
Cries from the pain and the fear he instills mix with the stench of alcohol emanating from his body. His other hand goes to her neck, gripping under her chin. The shriek piercing my ears is cut off when he squeezes.
Her face changes color.
Red. Then purple. Finally, heading into the blue family. Blue’s always been my favorite color, but I can’t say I’ve ever seen this exact shade before. It’s the color of sadness and the ocean of tears my mom has cried over this asshole.
Everything happens fast. Her eyes open wide and bulge as the pressure of his fingers increases.
She can’t breathe and I’m paralyzed standing behind him, watching it happen.
Transfixed with fascination, I stare. Her eyes lock on me, her love shining through the agony she’s experiencing. The terror and pleading in her eyes fades to acceptance.
She knows this time she’s going to die.
Tears flow uncontrolled down her cheeks and a sense of relief washes over me.
This is the last time he’ll ever make her cry.
