my review -
The second book had left me broken hearted, I wonder how Jake’s story will leave me…
Despite the tragedy from the previous book, I was excited to read his story. He is the male version of Darcie, so to speak, and the perfect bad boy compared to his twin brother Jeremy. He enjoys his life, and spends his time between hustling, fighting and womanizing.
Then the princess came along. DELILAH is PERFECT. She was trained to be one – a hostess, a trophy wife. She lived in comfort – and way different from Jake’s and the rest of the family’s upbringing and lifestyle. She might not be a snob, but I found her gullible with her mother’s wants and desires. Speaking of her mother – gaaaaahd. She’s the worst person I came across here, even worse than Carter – she’s a demon in designer clothes, the master puppeteer. I wished that Delilah would grow some balls (even though she’s a girl), and fight for what she wants rather than doing what she was dictated to do.
Her mother is against Jake, compared to Emerson, her future was bleak with the former. I couldn’t blame her with this kind of reasoning. But at that age, Delilah should be given the freedom to choose. If she wants to be with Jake, then she ought to be with him regardless of the circumstances. Because watching them together under the hood of friendship, pretending to be platonic is just sad.
YOU DO NOT LUST AFTER YOUR FRIEND.
Delilah should have realized that. No matter how hard she fought the feelings – Jake had seeped through her veins. This guy, who’s been calling her cupcake, and irritating her to the maximum level had given her the time of her life, but she decided to play it safe and appointed him as her best friend.
Over the next two years, they remained friendly, but still close. Embracing the relationship that none of them pretty much expected when it was so obvious that BOTH of them wanted it to be more.
Then the tragedy occurred – OMG – it just broke my heart again. Watching Drake having his heart ripped into pieces. And a twist I have never seen coming. I was surprised, I was distraught, I never realized. M.S. Brannon had almost given me a coronary – where in the world did it all came from? It was an unexpected twist – all the anticipation, all the confusion zeroed in to this point. I think this had caught my attention more than all the romantic drama Jake and Delilah had (sorry) – because the surprise was sooooooooooooooooo unfreeeakin believable!
Nevertheless, I finished it in one sitting (a little late), but I did. I couldn’t put it down because with all those dramas, I was desperate for a HEA – and I was praying, really hoping this time it wouldn’t end like that of the second book and I WAS SOOOOO glad with the ending. M.S. Brannon couldn’t make it anymore perfect.
