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.
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.
(I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review)
Oh boy! If you've read Quake, Quiver, Delve, and Tied - then like me, you may have been a bit anxious to see how in the heck Mr. Chance could work this story in order to make Zach a sympathetic character. Amazingly, not only did I find myself sympathizing with Zach, but somehow I found myself rooting for him and Lana! That my friends, takes some major talent, and some willingness on the reader's part to go along with the ride (which I did very enthusiastically).
I really enjoyed the story and seeing how Zach and Lana bonded and made it to HEA. I think that their relationship was developed quite well, but I wish that there was more time spent on the (unavoidable) conflict that came up as well as the resolution.
We also get a glimpse at how Janny, Kyle, Kenna, and Derrick are doing - plus what I hope is a hint at more to come from Josh and Elle! I really enjoyed Delude and I highly recommend starting at Quake and working your way through to it - and I hope that the series continues!
