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.
Who is she? My eyes narrow as I take in the red haired nymph on the dance floor. Studying her movements, I notice she’s graceful and fluid, yet sexy at the same time. Watching her hips sensually sway to the slower tempo and grind to the thumping bass has my teeth clenching and my heart pounding wildly in my chest. I fight an instinctive urge to rush over, take her in my arms and never let her go.
What the hell is wrong with me? I’ve never had this reaction to a woman before. Usually they’re just a means to get off – a nameless, faceless hole to fuck. I use them hard and fast, bringing them extreme pleasure and pain because one isn’t as good without the other.
I’m tempted to slide behind her and let my hands roam over the gentle curves of her hips then slip around her waist to pull her flush against the front of me. There’d be no mistaking the effect her body has on me. She’d wiggle her ass against my cock, teasing me, then flick her eyes over her shoulder with a small playful smile on her shiny red lips. My fingers would slide down the soft material of her dress to skim along the bottom edge, trailing over her silky thighs. She’d tremble from my touch, proof she wants me too.
Merely thinking about it has me fighting the overwhelming urge to carry her off and have my wicked way with her. I want to see her cuffed to my bed, whimpering and begging for my tongue or hard cock.
She returns to the table in the back corner of Quake, a popular club in Boston, with her friends. Her cheeks are flushed pink from dancing and her hair falls around her shoulders in a sexy disarray of waves.
My eyes scan the faces of the people she’s with. I know the names and have background information on them all. I’m well acquainted with some, more than others. I grimace as my hand rubs over my stomach. It was only weeks ago that I had a knife buried to the hilt in my gut and I was at death’s doorstep. Seeing the person responsible causes anger to burn through my veins.
Taking a deep breath I flick my gaze back to the living red haired angel. Immediately, I feel a sense of calm wash over me. She’s the only new face amongst them and now that I’ve seen her – no other matters. I have to find out who she is. I need to learn all I can about her.
Her eyes scan the room as if she can sense the heat of my stare. I smirk knowing she feels it too. This pulsing attraction between us is powerful and it needs to be explored. It will be explored. When I set my mind to something, nothing stands in my way.
Her hands smooth down the material on the back of her dress before she sits. She awkwardly tugs down the bottom to provide as much modesty as possible, but the short length leaves a good portion of her long sleek legs exposed. I can tell she’s uncomfortable and I smile at her modesty. There’s a sense of innocence about her I find extremely attractive.
Round after round of drinks are ordered by her friends as I stand here, studying her every move, slowly sipping a beer. Watching her tongue make a slow trek around the rim of her margarita glass, licking up all traces of salt has me mesmerized.
She throws her head back laughing and her long red hair tumbles past her shoulders.
What would her hair feel like trailing over my bare chest if she bent down to kiss me while riding my cock?
I need to know who this precious angel is. Seeing her tonight isn’t a coincidence. Fate placed her in my path for a reason.
Standing to the side of the bar, my shoulder braced against a white stucco pillar, my casual body language conceals the hurricane of emotions she’s stirring up in me. She’s an unexpected twist in my well thought out plan. I can’t wait to get to know her.
Let the games begin…

Although you get a glimpse of the characters in previous workings by the author, this book can be read as a standalone. It is advisable to read them to engage in the mind-set of the male protagonist more. I was really looking forward to this offering so I could discover exactly what it was that made Zack Weston, or Williams as he’s better known, tick. Surely there is a reason behind why somebody would behave the way he did previously, and here we are about to find out. Lana Edwards is the subject of his interest and I very much wanted to see how their story was going to unfold. Delude has an element of darkness and mystery mixed with some very steamy scenes.
Zack’s a bit of a loner. His mission is to get to know his neighbour, Lana, the girl who piqued his interest when he’d already been watching another subject. He’s desperately intrigued and will do almost anything to get to know her. Zack has done some unspeakable things, but what I did get to learn was how numerous past experiences make him so hell-bent on avenging others. He is one very angry, hurt man and while it can’t be excused, I began to understand the whys and wherefores. Nobody is born evil. It’s just circumstances that can make a person’s mind distort from right to wrong. I also got to learn a sweeter side of him which is mainly because of his attraction to Lana. Despite their magnetism, I worried about the psychotic side to Zack’s personality because let’s face, those tendencies were well-ingrained.
“Soon, there will be no more secrets between us. I just hope you’re still around when they’re all out in the open.”
Lana Edwards is a pretty young lady who works for KD Investigations for Kyle McKenzie and Derek Santiago. She is quite shy, sweet, and seems to be relatively happy with a good job, friends and a nice home. Looks can be deceiving because Lana carries the weight of the world on her shoulders. Hints of a past incident cause profound sadness and although there are flashes of a reasonably balanced life, it’s this part that had me wanting to find out exactly what happened to her. I always got the feeling she was running away from something, but in the same breath, never sure why. Lana is drawn to her neighbour Zack and they seem to strike up a bit of a friendship. That being said, knowing what I knew about the two protagonists had me on the edge of my seat!
“I hate when you say things like that. You’re a wonderful person, Zack. You show me all the time with your actions.”
I thoroughly enjoyed Zack and Lana’s story and yet again, the author has more than contributed to a major book hangover! I cannot dispute his writing talent since investing in his characters—good or bad ones, drew me into their lives with an incredible ease. The story-line is well-developed and the twists and turns and edgy scenes brought out all those emotions I look for in a good read. Of course, mixing provocatively explicit scenes amongst all the secrecy was a huge bonus. To sum up, life throws a curve-ball and causes pain. You’ll only find out if there’s light at the end of the tunnel by reading this beautiful love story. Kudos to the author and thank you for revealing the secrets.
