The Delight

A budding relationship starts only to be torn apart, leaving two people in shambles. There is true emotion from happy to heartbreaking. Will the mistakes made compromise them beyond redemption? This is one of my favorite parts of this serial!

At the end of Taunt Me, Elliott is starting to get more possessive of Simone. He didn’t want to date or make her is girlfriend, but when he finds out she might have played with her friend, he decides he has to start dating her. Simone on the other hand hasn’t gone on dates. She knows what she wants and she doesn’t play games to find it. While dating the sex takes a back burner and Simone starts to lose her heart to Elliott. Things seem to be finally going somewhere.

 

In this story we learn more about Elliott and Molly. Molly is Elliott’s step mother in a way. Elliott’s father was married to Molly but had affairs on her producing Elliott. But Molly took him in and took care of him. Molly is now dying in a nursing home but Elliott still visits her often even if she can’t remember him. Well, this was on episode of going back in time and revealing the family secrets.

 

Then BOM! Something happens that causes Elliott to pull away from Simone once again. What kind of man hurts a woman and enjoys it? Elliott brutally denies her sending her running to Aidan for pain to forget the love she has developed for Elliott.

This is at points brutal in the understanding of how Simone needs pain to alliviate a broken heart and at other points gentle as Elliott starts to date Simone. It is such a contrasting part of the story arc and I found myself falling in love with this part of the story for it’s honesty in emotion.

CROP ME!
Denies Me - Megan Hart

ARC provided by NetGalley for an honest review 

3.5 CROP STINGING STARS

It started out a little slow, but gave a bit more back story into Elliot's personality. Once things heated it up, the story was intense and HOT. I want to see how Elliot gets out of the hole he's dug for himself with Simone. And will Simone regret her hasty decision?

I do feel this could have been one whole book. Breaking it up, I feel, allows you to disconnect from the story between installments. Which I think does it a disservice.

I am curious about the next installment.

Review: Every Part of You - Denies Me (#4) by Megan Hart
Denies Me - Megan Hart

Quick review for a quick read. I'm...a little on the fence about this part. Good details into Simone and Elliot's respective pasts, which was something I appreciated the eye into once it was provided. Molly took care of Elliot like his mother never could, and he visited her in the resting home where she stayed. Simone goes on a "first date" with Elliot, and it builds upon their respective rapport - I liked that as well. I felt, however, that some of the progression of conflict in the latter part of the novella felt a little too quick in terms of its pacing. Not enough expansion. I understood the rationale behind it - what with Elliot dealing with a figure in his past returning in his life, and the pain of it making him distance himself from Simone, but it left me frustrated in both an intentional and unintentional way - intentional because it made me annoyed (like Simone) that he would just cut her off like that. Unintentional because it felt like it moved so fast with the emotional pacing that it threw me out of the story for a bit.

Nonetheless, this ends on a rather jarring note for both Elliot and Simone's respective relationship. Definitely checking into the next part, but this left me wanting a little more from it.

Overall score: 3/5 stars

Note: I received this as an ARC from NetGalley, from the publisher St. Martin's Press.

Reading progress update: I've read 13 out of 38 pages.
Denies Me - Megan Hart

Figure I might as well read this since it's releasing tomorrow and it's such a short read.  I feel sorry for Elliot in this part - we get a little more of his backstory and he's had a rough upbringing.
