The Delight

The last book in a series is sometimes bittersweet. Mostly you want to see the cast of characters continuing into the future happy and in love. This series has been one to push my limits, but also hits on some themes I just don’t like. Mostly I am delighted I made it through the series even if I didn’t write the review right away!

Review

This story packed a whollop to my system with all the growly alphas, mystery and intrigue, the repressed submissive who thinks she is tough and a cast of characters you will never forget. Someone has been leaking this quartets secrets and it all comes down to the bar they always frequent. Gabe doesn’t want to believe it’s his best employee. The one he has wanted, but won’t cross a line to have. Now he suspects she is the one releasing the information to the tabloids.

McKenna has loved Gabe for some time and would never betray him, but when she finds out someone is leaking information she knows her brother is involved. Owing money to everyone and some bad people, she feels the need to once again fix this for her brother. The brother sh has always taken care.

Gabe turns into a man bent on revenge and payback, but he can’t seem to wrap his head around the sweet McKenna betraying him. Now it is a choice for McKenna to make. Will she choose the brother she has always looked out for, or choose the man she loves.

The story winds it’s way through some passionate, graphic sexual scenes while keep you on the edge with suspense. McKenna’s character may have been called in question, but I found her to be a confident, strong woman who had overcome a lot in her life. Gabe had life easier and was living it to the fullest with his bar and playboy persona. McKenna and Gabe have to take a deep look inside themselves and each other to overcome a situation that may not have any winners.

Stacey Kennedy is an urban fantasy lover at heart, but she also enjoys losing herself in dark and sensual worlds. She loves in southwestern Ontario with her husband, who gave her a happily-ever-after. Together, they have two small children who can always make her smile, and who will never be allowed to read Mommy’s books. If she’s not plugging away at a new story, you’ll find her camping, curling up with the latest flick, or obsessing over Sons of Anarchy, Supernatural, True Blood and Lost Girl.

If I must read the last book, which I usually feel sad about it being the last one, I do love when all the former characters are brought back for a last hurrah. Tough choice for the heroine, here.

Glad to hear this was a good one. The story premise sounds like a good one.

I don’t think that I have read this author yet. It is a little sad to see a series come to an end but it sounds like this one was well done. It sounds like McKenna was in a really difficult situation.

I can’t help but adore growly alphas. LOL
