The Delight

This was another installment in a world I don’t understand or know along with teenagers acting older than they are and sometimes coming off as immature. Since it is YA, I forgie them.


The first three stories all came from Tinsley’s POV, but now Pres picks up where TInsley left off to continue the story. I was very vague in who Tinsley ended up with in the reviews, but you can’t get away from it since they are a couple for this entire story and The Rulz protect her like their own even if they aren’t sleeping with her. Hence why the Reverse Harem description never worked for me in the last three books.

Tinsley is now a target of a rival crew in a town over I guess. They are going rogue even in their own group. They want something and they are using Tinsley against Pres to get him to do some dirty work. But they aren’t afraid to hurt Tinsley either. Pres isn’t going to give in, nor is he letting Tinsley get hurt.

Pres is also dealing with his mother being in the last stages of ALS. She can’t talk, but before she got too sick, she set up Pres to get everything and her husband hardly anything. So his father is also coming at him to show he isn’t going to give and to shame his own son.

Throw in Tinsley’s best friend from back home is missing and she can’t just leave it alone. Tinsley going alone to save her is unthinkable, thus causing a lot of pressure to sit on Pres’s shoulders.

One by one he deals with all the issues that come his way. Some gracefully, some as a horribly thoughtless teenager he is. The wholly love he feels for Tinsley is a little over the top. While he never questions that love, he does test it with words and actions.

The story is much in the same vein as the first three, just a different perspective. The description hinted it might be time for one of The Rulz to go, but that is never addressed. Maybe there were hints of something to come, but even that I didn’t pick up on.

Kip’s story is next and I assume Barr’s will be close behind, but who knows, maybe he is the one getting iced.

The love making is a little more detailed, but also not very exciting. It felt like it was written by someone who doesn’t know what a woman wants in a romance. But then again this is YA so I really am not sure I wanted to have that kind of love making.

I am hooked on this series. I wish I could tell you why….but I can’t.

LOL, you’re bewilderment over this series and book crack me up. Always fun when you have no idea why you like a series, but you just do. 🙂

I’ve read series where I really liked them but couldn’t really understand why. Glad to hear you’re enjoying this though.
