FOUR BOUNDLESS STARS
The Heartless Boyfriend is a fun and enjoyable read. This is the second book, in the bad boyfriend series. And I didn’t realize it was part of a series (oops), but I did jump into the story. I’m glad I did. Delilah is at a point in her life, where the direction she thought it was going to go, didn’t. Will has learned a secret, that secret will change the course of his life. But then again, they would never have met this way. This was enjoyable. But I couldn’t connect with the characters on a personal level, due to the POV that it was written in. It’s my personal preference. But it was written well, no doubt that Kelley has a great talent. Overall, Four Boundless Stars.
As the warm water rushed over her soapy hands, Delilah thought about her immediate reaction to Will’s question about whether she’d leave if her family gave her the restaurant back, the way her heart had seized. It would mean the world to have them believe in her enough to support her franchise.
At the same time, though, she’d had a stab of fear. She didn’t want to leave Will and his sister, the competition, and this sprawling ranch filled with ice-cold creeks and wild animals, cabins, trails, and teal-colored lakes.
These feelings for Will…she couldn’t explain it. He wasn’t her type, and yet she wanted to spend every damn minute with him. And that kiss in the hydroponic farm?
She’d never had a kiss like that. Something so electric, so erotic. It had uncorked this desperate need for more. It wasn’t just exciting to kiss in the hallway outside the tasting kitchen…it had called on something deep, primal. Him.
She’d had this crazy feeling like, if she didn’t get closer to him, meld with him, she would combust.
Shutting off the faucet, she reached for a clean dish towel.
No question, Will was an intimidating man. His energy bristled with purpose, and he didn’t waste a single moment, word, or calorie. Everywhere he went, people stopped and watched him. It was almost comical when someone froze in the middle of licking an ice cream cone to take him in. Women eyed him with want and possession; men eyed him with awe and envy.
But nobody saw those moments when he held his sister and agonized over whether he was doing right by her. No one saw him curled up in her bed reading books, as she bounced Squawk in her lap.
And the way he looks at me? That carnal hunger—the promise of what he’d do to her body if they were alone—Glory be—it sent a direct hit to her heart, making her giddy.
She liked him, for sure. But that kiss made her realize she more than liked him.
God, she had to have him. Just had to.
