My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Before this installment, my fav' part was probably the second book where Derek let himself go and doesn't deny what he feels.
In the same way of thoughts, it's no surprise I gave this one 5 stars. Unblocked four is much more personal, much more intimate. Marni Mann keeps me captivated with each book. It's incredible how with such a little book, she can give so many information, yet not too much to get us enthrall for the final act.
Frankie is not sure what she has to do. She wants Derek, still she is not sure he is ready to give her what she wants. On the other side, she doesn't want to give away too much of herself. She is not used to love. Her work has always been the biggest part of herself. The approbation and the acknowledgement of her father is what she needs too.
She has to find some kind of balance and she needs to know if Derek is on board with this
I loved how vulnerable both Frankie and Derek are. They both pour their heart and they both learn how to trust.
Not everything is settle, not everything is resolved. Derek has still things hidden; he still has secrets to share. He still needs to wrap his mind on how to proceed with his feelings.
I'm almost jealous of the people who are going to read Unblocked after all the books are out because they will have all the details.
It's rare to see a series so well put together where the cliffhangers are mostly bearable and you get the next action at the beginning of the next book right away.
In fact, I may re-read them all back to back when they will all be available.
That's how Frankie and Derek make me feel. Together they are strong, their chemistry is hot, their need for each other is compelling and I'm almost sad to know there's only one book left.
EXCERPT“Tonight is about us, no one else, and that’s the way I want it to stay. No more interruptions,” Derek said.
I took a deep breath and reached for my wine. I wasn’t going to let my brain jump to conclusions. This weekend was about us. Not Taylor. Not Reed. “I agree.”
He leaned into the table, his hand moving higher up my leg. “Kiss me.”
We weren’t in a back booth, and this restaurant wasn’t nearly as private as The Hole.
There were more servers, a more open floor plan, many other tables close by. What he was asking for was much more than the peck I had given him before I’d gone to the bathroom. “Those fingers,” I said, placing my hand on top of them, “aren’t planning on going any higher, are they?”
He licked his bottom lip, teasing me with just the swipe of his tongue and the whiskers that surrounded it. “They weren’t, no. But now that I know it’s on your mind, I’m not sure I’ll be able to stop them.”
