I used to think she couldn’t resist me, but she had no problem earlier this week. I’ve got a few tricks up my sleeve when it comes to Ms. Noelle. Let’s see if she still can. “I’ll be right back.”
“What?” my mom asks, watching me get out of the car. “Where are you going? The light’s going to turn green any second.”
I keep walking.
She sees me. Even though her pretty eyes are hidden behind big sunglasses, I can figure they’re probably damn wide right now. Reaching for the truck door lock, her finger pushes it down just as I arrive. She can kid herself like that. She knows deep down that I’ll never hurt her, but I might pressure her into giving me a little of her time.
Standing on the other side of her door, I knock. Delilah finally looks up and points at the light. It’s green. I shrug. I make the lame twist of the wrist roll down your window motion with my hand because I have a feeling she might not understand if I pretend to push a button to roll it down.
“Get back in your car, Jason,” she says through the glass.
“No. Roll down your window.” To sugarcoat it, I add, “Please.”
“What do you mean why? I want to talk to you and I don’t want shout through the glass.”
Huffing, the glass slides down slowly. “What is it?” She keeps her hands on the steering wheel and her grip seems to tighten just a bit.
She glances my way, so I say, “I want to see you.”
“You’re seeing me, Jason, so if that’s all there is, I’ll be going no—”
The glass starts to roll up, but I clamp my palm over it. She releases the button and looks up at me. “I don’t know what happened the other day, what turned your mood so quickly, but I’d like another chance for us to talk this time.”
“It’s not a good idea.”
“It’s a great idea, actually. All you have to say is yes.”
My smile tilts into a smirk. “You haven’t changed much.”
“Then you haven’t been paying attention.”
Jason Koster has been gone from his hometown for five long years, leaving on the heels of heartbreak. But home is calling to him, and with it the memories of all that he’s left behind. Time and life has changed him, and he’s not the same person that left, but, if the one he left will give him another chance, he might just stick around.
If you’ve read the Kingwood Duet by author S.L. Scott, then you’ll remember Jason. Yes, that Jason, the friend, protector, brother-in-arms, sexy, got-your-back guy? Well, guess what? Jason is back, and we get to see where this bad boy is from, and what makes him tick in SOLACE, the newest release from author S.L. Scott.
I really enjoyed seeing this side of Jason, seeing him in his element, and learning about the past that had formed the man I met in the Kingwood books. Love, loss, betrayal, all of these things made Jason the man that left home for a life unknown, and carried him through until the desire to go back to his roots finally called loudly enough.
Meeting Delilah, the woman that Jason never stopped loving, gives more insight into why Jason felt so connected to Sara Jane in SAVAGE. Soft yet strong, innocent, yet not, Delilah has had more than her share of loss, too. Misplaced trust and a friend with his own agenda took the most important thing from her, and left her a very different person than the one that Jason had known. But it doesn’t take long for the flame to flare brighter and hotter than before, creating a second chance that has been years in the making.
SOLACE is full of sexy, steamy Southern charm, with characters that have many layers to them, yes, but there is plenty of the stock intrigue and suspense that kept me turning pages until I got to the very end. 4.5 sexy, sweet, suspenseful second-chance stars for SOLACE. Definitely one for fans that want a little bit of everything, and a great addition to Suzie Scott’s body of work.
