“Second chances, 4 stars”

Delilah and Zeke were in love as kids, but Zeke had to take off for his own reasons. When he did he promised to return to her. But the separation was much longer then Delilah would have thought. Now he’s back and wanting to make things right. Its up to Delilah on if she will let him back in.
Zeke has always loved Delilah that’s never been the issue. The issue is him. Is he worthy of her? When confronted with his past he must decide if its now or never where she’s concerned. Will he take her hand and never let go or runaway again?
I really loved Delilah. She was strong when she needed to be but forgiving when it mattered. There was no question in my mind that Zeke loved Delilah. But for me I didn’t like Zeke’s mind, I realize kids who grow up like he did have a lot of baggage to unload but I felt like he depended too much on Delilah and her opinion. I just wish he had some more confidence.
At one point in the start of the story I swear to god I had read it before, but clearly hadn’t. I don’t know what book the start reminded me of, but it reminded me of something. With that said, Miss is still a good quick read that one would enjoy while passing time.
Writing style-4/5
AHHHH I love these characters. Miss is a standalone novel, but is connected with a previous book called Gent. Miss follows Delilah, who was the best friend in the first book. We got a lot of hints about Delilah’s past, but I was not quite expecting what I got. This book is full of heart break and self-hatred, but it also is about second chances.
I really liked the plot of this book. I knew that Delilah was going to have a great story. Delilah was in love once. When she was a teen she gave her everything to one boy. That boy left and took all the fairytales she always believed. Five years later he finally comes back. Can see look past the demons in the past and move forward or are they destined to fail?
Delilah is such a strong character. I love the fact that she didn’t just melt on the spot and give into her inner feelings. She fought them because she knew that just because your heart wants something doesn’t mean that it is always good for you. Zeke is a great character as well. I wanted to hate him at first, but then as I got to know him I really started to love him. I see his strength as well. I liked watching him learn to move on from the past.
The heat in this book is there. The chemistry they have is amazing. I loved watching these two get to know each other all over again. It just added to the growing feelings between the two. This was a great part of this book.
I really liked the writing style of this book as well. The pace of the book was steady. I liked the two characters. This story is told in a dual point of view. I like that we got to know some more minor characters. The town was described amazingly as well.
Overall, this is an amazing story. I really enjoyed everything about it. I really hope the author continues to use some of the minor characters and grow this little world she has created. I really have enjoyed getting to know this town and would love to learn more. I would recommend this book to others.
Writing style-5/5

 His voice is even more flat when he says, “Not sure what you mean. This is me.”
“You’re acting so detached and strange. This isn’t like you.”
“Well, you don’t know me anymore.”
That response brings fury and betrayal roaring to the surface again. “And whose fault is that, Zeke?” I grab a nearby mug with the intention of throwing it at his head. He’s giving me worse mood swings than Aunt Flo.
 “We both know the answer. Let’s not play guessing games.”
“You’re ridiculous. I don’t understand you at all,” I say.
“A lot happens in five years. You’re not the only one who’s changed.” He gestures around the store.
“What is that supposed to mean? Are you upset about my career choice?”
“Nah, that isn’t it.”
“What then? Let’s stop dancing around. You came here for a reason,” I point out.
A flush races up his neck, painting the stubbled skin an angry red. “All of this is proof you never needed me. Not like I fucking depend on you.”

I had everything I needed, except freedom from my past—a past that suddenly feels like a ruse, ready to ruin everything I’ve worked for.

I heard the warnings; I just didn’t give a damn, because casualties of war are to be expected.

“Careful what you wish for, 5 stars”

So, from the blurb its pretty clear to see Kase is out for revenge, we just don’t know why. Well you won’t find out until almost the end. Kase has been hurt and used and he’s over it. Now he’s out for blood and willing to burn anyone who gets in his way. To him she was victim of war, then he met her, and everything changed. Delanie unknowingly changes the game for Kase. Is it too late for these two star-crossed lovers?
Delanie thought she had it all until a bright light was lit upon her world and she saw how dirty and flawed it was. It wasn’t the life she wanted so she left. Delanie moved on to bigger and better things. She doesn’t know what it is about Kase that draws her to him, but she can’t stop herself. Will she give him a chance or is it too soon?  What will happen when Kase’s secrets come to light? Will she be able to handle everything, or will it be too much?
Miller had me pulled in right away and I never figured out what was really going on with Kase until he told us. When he did even I was slightly surprised which felt awesome. Its not very often I don’t see something coming in a story. What these two had right away was pure fire and they had it all at the tip of their fingers. The question is did they grab onto that love or did they drop it?
If you love a good love story with some suspense of not knowing Kase of Deception might be the one for you. I would also like to say I hope some of the secondary characters get their own stories because they deserve them for being totally brilliant secondary characters to Kase and Delanie.

Excerpt - Copyright © 2018 Riann C. Miller
I’m a down to earth person until you make me mad, then it’s no hold barred. Especially when livelihoods are on the line. I have a meticulous plan in place, which means I shouldn’t be here, especially with her, but my conscience got the best of me.
I should walk away…
I should leave her the hell alone…
But I’ve never been known for following rules, and this woman—she’s hard to ignore and impossible to forget.
“Oh God, I’m sorry. I promise your secret is safe with me.”
I tilt my head, intrigued at the way her face flushed with color. “Oh, do tell. What secret are you keeping for me?”
She glances around, ensuring no one is listening before she leans halfway across the table, cupping her hands around her mouth. “That you’re a member of a sex club.”
A vision of her cuffed to my bed pops in my head from hearing her innocently whisper the word ‘sex,’ like it’s forbidden.
I learned years ago to avoid women, at least outside of the bedroom. Sex is something no man wants to go without, but a relationship is a whole other story. And this woman, with her big innocent blue eyes, screams relationship material. Nonetheless, she’s captivated my attention.
“It’s nice to know I can trust you, but those who know me best wouldn’t be surprised by my membership to Stella.”
Her forehead puckers. “Then… Why did you bring me here?”
“Straight to the point. I like that quality in a person.” I purposely brush the edge of my hand against hers, itching to touch her in any way possible.
I never counted on meeting her but I was left with the urge to know she was okay, so I did what any normal person in my shoes would do and I watched her from afar, ensuring she was okay, reminding myself I’m not a total bastard. In addition to being beautiful, I discovered she fucking smiles at everyone. If Mary Poppins and Kate Upton had a baby, she would be it.
“You left the other night before I had the chance to talk to you.”
           She pulls her hand off the table, her eyes darkening as she brushes her fingers through her long blonde hair. “You mean, you were disappointed when I didn’t wait on you to finish fucking another woman before you gave me the time of day?”
I hold back a smirk. “You’re jealous.” What an interesting turn of events.
Running into her at Stella—which was unplanned—she projected the perfect mix of sweet and sultry. Until then, I wasn’t entertaining the idea of talking to her, let alone fucking her. Now it’s all I can think of.
“N-nnno, I am not,” she sputters.
“Then it’s pointless to mention I returned to the main room only minutes later, with hopes of talking to you.”
Her nose turns up. “My ex couldn’t last long, but—”
Oh, for fuck’s sake. “A friend of mine runs the club. He was out of town and asked me to stop in and check on things. The woman you saw was asking for assistance with an irritable member who was causing a problem.”
Her mouth forms a perfect O while she nods.
“I don’t necessarily believe in fate, Ms. Charles, but the fact that we were leaving Thornton at precisely the same time is a consequence I find hard to ignore.” Like Saturday night, seeing her today wasn’t planned.
She nervously taps her fingernails in a rhythm on the table, watching me but not saying a word.
“I think we would have ended up leaving Stella together, if given the chance, and that’s exactly what I want.” What I need.
“That’s a very presumptuous statement.”
“I like to think of myself as confident, not arrogant.”
“I’m not sure you know the difference.”
Her feisty behavior makes me eager to hear her moaning my name.
“Tell me, without lying, that I’m wrong, that you didn’t imagine the two of us fucking like animals, and I’ll get up and leave. You’ll never hear from me again.”
Her eyes widen while she crosses and uncrosses her legs, but what she doesn’t do is tell me to get lost.
“I want to feast on every inch of your delicious body.”
She noticeably swallows. Her eyes dance around the restaurant then back to mine.
“You can lie and tell me you don’t want this but you’re only depriving yourself of a night we both desperately want.” I reach across the table, cupping my hand over hers. “One night. Allow yourself one night where someone else does all the thinking for you.”
I love the high I get from being with a woman, the way I can lose myself in the pure physical act two people share, but I’m only fooling myself if I believe one night will be enough. But for now, it’ll have to do.
“I thought one-night stands happened after you’ve had too much to drink, not something people premeditate during the middle of the day at a taco shop?”
I stifle a laugh. “Sex can mean many things to different people, but when both parties are clear and upfront, the possibilities can be endless.” I arch a brow. “The beauty of making a decision is it’s yours to own.”
Her big doe eyes fix on mine. I can see the questions dancing through her mind and I’m a lucky bastard she hasn’t already run out of here like the place is on fire.
“What are the rules? Would we meet somewhere? Because meeting at my place isn’t ideal.” I make a mental note to figure out why she wouldn’t want to take me to her place but for now, I bask in fact that she’s considering my offer.
“I’ll send a car for you at five when you get off work.” I jump to my feet, ready to get hell out of here before she changes her mind, not that she’s exactly agreed. “A black Lincoln will be out front. My driver’s name is Tim, and he’ll be watching for you. Oh, and Delanie…” I place my hand under her chin, tilting her head back. “Plan on staying the night.” I brush my thumb over her bottom lip.
Tonight can’t get here fast enough.
“I have to go but I promised you lunch. I’ll order something on my way out.”
She waves my comment off. “Oh, no you don’t have to do that.” She looks at the time on her phone. “You really have to go right now? Maybe we should talk more about this.”
And that’s exactly why I need to leave.
“I’ll see you in a few hours.”
I could be making the biggest mistake of my life, but if I’ve learned anything, it’s that karma’s a bitch because something tells me, one way or the other… This woman was meant to be in my life.
