ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.
Derek and Frankie finally reached the turning point in their relationship. With their pasts still hanging on, they either need to let go or take it by its horn. Their support to each other would be crucial as everything fall into place.
In order to move on with their future, both Frankie and Derek had to face their past. She finally dealt with her past and ready to start fresh, but suffered a blow when a something derailed her progress.
“I just want to feel something. However long it lasts, no matter how I feel when it’s over, during those minutes we’re together I just want to feel pleasure. Only you can give me that…and I want you to.”
Derek was never too far away and provided her with all she needed. He also stepped up his game in the final moments in taking down his arch-nemesis Randy White.
Unblocked – Episode Five is my favorite in the series. I love how it had a slightly different feel to it. It was more emotional than it had ever been and it affected both Frankie’s and Derek’s side.
“If he’s capable of destroying people, then what’s stopping him from destroying you?”
I squeezed her tighter. “I’m smarter than him.”
Though I have to say I wish it was longer where the issue with both Reed and Randy could be elaborated more. I felt like Reed issue was phased out too quickly and I was hoping for more confrontation during Frankie and Derek’s altercation with Randy.
The sex scene was of course smoldering and especially good when it was added with some emotions. I love seeing a different kind of vulnerability by the characters.
I love the ending. It was the kind of ending that perfectly suit the journey of their relationship.
I have to say, Derek Block definitely has the best mouth in all of heroes I’ve read. Not only he elevated dirty talk to a whole new level, he also had an infamous tongue that I won’t forget for a long time.
Unblocked is a five parts erotic romance novella series and recommended to those who likes their books short but sexy as hell.
