In this book we follow Drew and Shelby. I have been eagerly anticipating Drew's book every since we got our very first glimpse of him so I was so happy that this was his bo. I admire him because of how much he wants to protect all of his loved one and at the same time I want to shack him at times because of how closed off he can be at time , because he wants protect everyone ,honestly seeing him open up to Shelby and his family have to be some of my favorite moments in the book .Drew is definitely very swoon worthy and even though he makes you want to pull your hair out sometimes lol he is good person .I loved Shelby , there were times in this book I wish I could be more like Shelby she is so intelligent and honestly gives Carmen Sandiego and Nancy Drew a run for there money when she is getting ready to dig into a mystery . I thought she was perfect for Drew, there are literally moments that these two share in this book that honestly make me feel like one of those cartoons characters with the heart eyes lol . Lexi Blake always manages to create these unforgettable romances that that make you feel all the emotions possible and make you so invested that have to remind your self over and over that these are characters and now real people lol . However there was so much more to this story than just the romance as we come closer and closer to solving the mystery of The Drews Parents death,things are revealed that I once again did not see coming , I loved that Iam constantly kept on my toes while reading a Lexi Blake book , I could have never guess where things would lead and how sick , manipulative and twisted the big villain really is, but at the same time I felt every thing came full circle .Revenge is a sexy , addicting , thrilling read that is officially on my best reads of 2017 list and I cannot wait to see what Lexi Blake will write next .
Shelby brushed her lips against his, her whole body seeming to come to life. His lips were soft, his hands tight. He was enveloping her and she was completely defenseless against him.
She wrapped her arms around him as the kiss deepened, and suddenly she didn’t want to play it safe anymore. She’d been in her shell for so long and she wanted to come out of it, wanted to feel again. She dragged her tongue over his lower lip, and it seemed to awaken the beast in Drew.
He took over, the kiss going from sweet to carnal in an instant. His mouth opened, tongue sliding over hers and dominating with strength and a sensuality she’d never come across before. He kissed her long and hard, his hands molding to the curves of her body. Over and over again his tongue danced with hers. Never before had a kiss seemed so effortless. It was like they’d been kissing forever.
For a man who claimed he was socially awkward, he sure could kiss like a god.
It was getting out of hand, but she didn’t care. Nothing mattered except getting more of him. She could feel his cock under her, hardening, lengthening, getting ready for what it was meant to do. He could ease her back against the table, pull off her jeans and panties. It would be incendiary, like a rocket going off, an explosion she couldn’t contain. She could feel herself getting soft and wet and ready for him, as though her body had recognized its natural mate and wasn’t taking no for an answer.
“See, I told you we have chemistry.” His words rumbled along her lips.
She couldn’t argue with him. The world around them seemed hazy and unreal. There was nothing except his touch and scent and the sight of his eyes looking at her like he could eat her up. She knew she should stop him, knew it was getting out of control, but she couldn’t find the will. It had been so damn long since she wanted something she could actually have.
She wanted him.
Shelby let her fingers sink into his hair, drawing him back down. Breakfast could wait. She needed more of him.
