He was my brother’s best friend and seven years older than me.
He was a tatted up bad boy, indulging in one night stands like they were going out of style.
So why did I want to tear his clothes off every time we got within five feet of each other?
She was only eighteen years old when we met for the first time.
She was a good girl who avoided guys like me, but that didn’t stop me from picturing all the things I wanted to do to her–to do with her. She was too young though, and my best friend’s baby sister. I couldn’t let things go where I wanted. I couldn’t touch her–couldn’t taint her with my darkness. I knew it could never happen. It would never happen…
but it did.
Kindle Friends Forever 5 ★ Review by Donna
Delve is the forbidden romance about Kenna McKenzie and Derek Santiago. We got a glimpse of these two characters in Quake and Quiver and now we are treated to more of them. He’s seven years older and has been sworn off by her brother Kyle, who would literally bends over backwards for his little sister. It just happens that Kyle and Derek are best friends and partners in a private investigation company which doesn’t help matters, either. She was only an innocent eighteen-year-old girl when she met Derek; however, there’s a darkness about him that concerned me in the respect that this trait of his could be exposed to her. Although it’s clear they had to stay away from each other, there’s no doubt the magnetism they have palpitates.
“Is it a one night stand if he’s your brother’s best friend and he’s starred in every sexual fantasy you’ve ever had?”
Kenna’s now a career girl who has a very strong-willed personality but at the same time, there’s vulnerability about her. Regardless of her loving relationship with her brother who would protect her no matter what, she’s still wary of her feelings for Derek and for a very good reason. Why, you may ask? Ah, all is to be revealed in the story!
Derek is a tattooed alpha male and although his feeling for Kenna run deep, I truly understood his doubts. Not being able to envisage one’s worthiness must be horrendous and as I read on, I discovered parts of him that he wasn’t proud of. His persona touched me; drew me in and for the life of me, I couldn’t shake him off.
To say I was frustrated at times would be putting it lightly. All I asked for was for them to just stop playing cat and mouse with their feelings. Then in one scenario my opinion changed one-hundred and eighty degrees! Of course, taking into regard this comment adds up to a whole lot of steaminess. My word, in this offering the dirty devil, Derek, almost made me blush, flush and get my knickers in a twist! Suspense abounds and without giving anything away, I was waiting for the moment to happen only to be given another twist in the tale. Cleverly written, I thought I’d sussed out the route the story was taking me. SHOCKER, it wasn’t!
Mr Chance doesn’t disappoint. If you are into reading suspenseful sexy reads with a twist and a half, this book’s for you. It is a standalone but there might be parts of it a tinsy-winsy unclear unless you’ve read the previous books. Saying that, I’d most definitely recommend future readers taking the CHANCE because I truly think it won’t hinder the flow. When a story involves side characters so well-developed, sucks you in and you easily connect to the protagonists at the drop of hat, in my book, it’s totally one-clickable. I thoroughly enjoyed Delve. It had me anticipating the outcome in a storyline that had me invested from the beginning to the end. This author tells his stories from a dual point of view and that’s always a firm favourite of mine. Why? Simply because it gives an indication to what each and every one is thinking during situations they encounter.
“She’s my best friend’s little sister. Her pussy’s got forbidden stamped all over it.”
He’s Lucifer in the flesh with those deep brown eyes and dark-as-sin hair. My eyes move down, taking in the close-shaved beard hiding the contours of his chiseled jawline, before continuing on to his full lips. I carefully study their masculine shape. I can still remember what those lips felt like on mine; even though I’ve done everything I can to forget. I wish I could erase the memory of how he gripped the back of my hair tight in his fist and tugged me forward until our lips were just a whisper of a breath apart.
“Is this what you want?” he’d asked. I could feel his warm breath on my mouth before he’d softly brushed his lips against mine. “Do you want to see how close to the fire you can be without getting burned, little girl?”
I tried to pull away, incensed at being called little girl. I wasn’t a girl. I was a twenty-one- year-old woman; perfectly capable of knowing what I should and shouldn’t be doing. I knew which heading kissing him fell under – insanity.
He was my brother’s best friend.
He was seven years older than me.
He was a pig when it came to casual sex; indulging in one-night stands like they were going out of style.
That alone should have been enough to repulse me, but for some odd reason, it didn’t. It only made me wonder what kind of things he would do to me. I was smart enough to recognize that those three things combined were a recipe for disaster. The wreckage left over would be the pieces of my heart, and I couldn’t put myself out there for him on the off chance that he wouldn’t break me. My heart was damaged enough already.
He’d held my head in place as he’d swooped in, taking my lips in a kiss so hot I felt like I was going to burn up in flames. His tongue had plundered my mouth, punishing me for pulling away, for trying to resist him. He showed me who was in control with that kiss. He showed me I wouldn’t ever truly get away from him, and I hated him for that. I hated him for ruining other guys for me; but most of all I hated him for what he’d said when he pulled away from me.
“Stick to kissing those boys at school. Men want a woman in their arms, not a little girl.” He looked at me with such disdain, I wanted the ground to open up and swallow me whole. I wanted to disappear, go someplace where his painful words couldn’t hurt me anymore. Where my memory could be wiped clean of Derek Santiago and his handsome face.
That kiss is still the hottest one I’ve ever had to this day, but I still despise him for the cruel words he callously threw at me. Those words tore me apart and made me second guess myself. It took me a long time to realize what he said wasn’t motivated by me at all. It was the result of him despising himself.
