Delirious is the sixth and latest release in the erotic romance series from M.S. Force--aka bestselling author Marie Force--entitled Quantum. If you're new to the series, it's about a group of very close and highly successful friends who own a secret sex club that shares the same name as the production company they also all co-own, Quantum. This book marks the fourth member of that particular exclusive group to have their story told. Thirty-six-year-old Kristian Bowen has had a thing for thirty-two-year-old single mother of two and cancer survivor Aileen Gifford. When he learns that she's moving from New York to California, he's excited at the prospect of having her on the same coast. But then, it's not as if he can pursue anything romantic or intimate with her. She deserves someone better--someone who doesn't indulge in the kind of kinky lifestyle that he does, someone who doesn't have the darkness and nightmares that continue to shadow him. Aileen, however, knows what she wants and it's the possibility of a life together with Kristian. Will she be able to convince him that her future is better with him in it?
I've been looking forward to Aileen's story, especially after she was introduced in the original trilogy. I think that she and Kristian do make a pretty good pair, but there was some glossing over with as far as his and her issues were concerned, almost as if they were heeding the whole "love conquers all" adage, which, if we're being totally honest here, isn't always true. Kristian's issues are deep-seated ones and I think that a lot more could have and should have been done to properly address it. Now, with regards to Aileen's health, well, no one said that you can't have a full life post-cancer, but again, I was expecting more discussion, especially since, whether we like it or not, surviving cancer does change you. I'm not saying that neither Kristian's nor Aileen's issues were not mentioned; they were, but I wish they had delved deeper. Still, M.S. Force brings it once again when it comes to the eroticism and romance, making this sixth book a worthy addition to the Quantum series. While not my favorite, Delirious remained a good read, and I'm still looking forward to reading about the remaining Quantum people. Four stars. ♥
