Review & Giveaway - Delicious Delay by Tara Quan


Delicious Delay

by Tara Quan 


Stranded in a Middle Eastern airport, Michelle Day finds herself the object of interest for an abrasive, but all-too-sexy stranger—a stranger who tempts her with the forbidden in a land where indecency could get her killed. But how does one say no to such a deliciously, relentless pursuit? 

Khalid Al Dehri takes one look at the red-headed spitfire in the business class lounge and knew he’d either been transported to heaven—or hell. Her tart response to his surliness intrigues him beyond all propriety and the longer he spends in her company, the more he can’t deny his forbidden attraction. But will she explore the sensuality between them or will society’s rules keep them apart? 


He grinned. “So I have a proposal.” 

She tried to get her breathing under control, without much success. “Why am I sure it’s an indecent one?” 

He motioned his head toward the far end of the lounge. Latticed wooden screens gave that particular section more privacy. In an L-shaped room, the tucked-away location prevented a direct line of sight from the dining or reception areas. 

He got up and offered her his hand. She hesitated for a long moment before taking it. With faltering footsteps, she followed him. More private or not, limits on how far this could go existed due to them being in an airport lounge. Since her self-control had chosen today to take a vacation, she appreciated the imposed constraint. 

He lowered himself onto a plush leather sofa deep inside the cordoned area. With walls on either side and screens strategically angled, the space seemed to have been designed as a spot for people to nap. 

On the brink of crossing a dangerous line, she hesitated. “What exactly do you have in mind?” 

“I’m just giving you the opportunity to have your way with me,” he offered, his face the picture of innocence. 

She hadn’t expected that answer. “I don’t quite follow.” 

He kicked one of his legs out and tangled it with hers. She stumbled and instinctively moved her hands forward to brace herself. Her palms flattened over his hard muscled chest when she landed. 

She traced the shape of his pectorals. “What do you do all day? Work out?” 

He chuckled, the low rumble all male. “I have access to the best personal trainers money can buy. They help keep me honest.” 

She shook her head in disbelief as the man preened. “Have you heard of a concept called humility?” 

“It’s not one of my virtues,” he admitted. “I’ve never understood the point.” 

She sighed. “It’s the polite thing to do.” 

He placed his forefinger under her chin and tipped her head up, his expression playful. “So what is a sweet, polite, goody two shoes doing on top of me?”

My Review:
I loved reading this very entertaining and sexy story!  This was a beautifully well written romance and I found myself drawn into the story from page one (I hated when it ended, I wanted more)!  Michelle is returning to the United States after working abroad but due to a airplane delay is stuck in the airport lounge with a surly yet handsome stranger.  Khalid is attracted to this sexy American girl and finds himself offering her a proposal.  The chemistry between these two very fascinating characters was off the charts.  Due to this being a very short story, I am not going to reveal anything more but I highly recommend this fantastic story to romance readers who enjoy a quick well written romantic tale.  I have added Tara Quan previous books onto my TBR pile and am looking forward to more wonderful stories by this very talented author! ~Booklover Sue
