My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Now, there really ain’t much left between us…
Another breathtaking instalment from the pen of Jacob Chance.
(I got this as a freebie gift as part of a FB discussion -a lovely present!)
This book is a standalone but part of what is currently a 3 book series.
Derek, a dark, brooding Irish-Latino grew up rough and untamed but he’s outgrown his chequered past and is now a made good private investigator. Problem? He’s got a burning desire for sweet ‘n’ sassy ER nurse Kenna, the baby sister of Kyle (yep, the I-got-shot-down,-but-I-got-up-again Kyle), his business partner.
The usual ensues, hot furtive glances, alpha dominance and stolen kisses before they succumb to a fierce night of lust and consuming passion.
It doesn’t end there though. This is after all a JacobMcTwisty novel, so expect the off-centre….
The stalker from Quiver (Quake book #2) is back, clearly recovered from what we all though was a fatal stabbing, -courtesy of Kyle – who knifed him good during a break-in and failed attack of Kyle’s woman, Jenna, in her home. The psycho is back on script and plots to take his revenge this time from another woman close to Kyle. So he first fixates on Kenna
He becomes just as obsessed with breaking and entering her home to conduct minor acts of petty larceny. At least this time creepy mcstalker isn’t finding perverted release in her underwear drawer (Quiver shares it all. I read, shuddering with that delicious, slightly pervy mix of aghast arousal Chance’s books have dragged out of me) The stalker is deinately a bit more developed in this novel, and I nearly threw up a bit in my mouth following him on a night out on the tiles…
This stalker doesn’t feel like he’s going away any time soon, and creepy as it sounds I do want to see how this darkish-read thread develops…
Derek and Kenna battle through their love-hate encounters until a devastating shooting of Kenna in the ER brings Derek to his senses and he declares his love for her.
This book is hot, wild and filled with the very believable smut that rolls effortlessly off Derek’s tongue.
Although this book had the feel of an insta-love alpha bad boy novel it is more than that.
Derek and Kenna get their HEA, whilst the final pages reveal who is actually in the crosshairs of the stalker.
Didn’t see that coming at all.
I rate hard, but this was an easy solid 4 stars.
