Blog Tour: Review + Excerpt Breaking Delia's Rules by W. Lynn Chantale

Synopsis: Five days, three rules, and one sizzling seduction. Delia has just three rules for dating. First, a man should never assume he’s the only one. Second, he must stick to his scheduled day and time. Third—and most important—no sex. Enforcing the rules has never been a problem until she meets the hottie from the pool.

Jace has only five days to make every moment count. The more time he spends with Delia, the more he realizes she may be The One. With the clock ticking, he realizes there is only one course of action to take if he wants Delia's heart. Can he convince Delia that rules are meant to be broken?

This was a 60-page eBook and no matter how short it was, it made me swoon and squeal at how romantic Jace was to Delia. The setting is on a cruise ship and Delia has a bunch of rules when it comes to guys. She doesn’t want anything to go beyond a fling or just a date. But Jace dared her to commit to one guy for the last days of the cruise. She accepts not knowing that the guy she has to commit to is Jace.

Jace is such a romantic. He does it with flowers, picnics, cuddling, and candle-lit dinners. He’s every girls dream. Hot, romantic, sexy, and sweet. They have a great thing going on and I enjoyed how it all began and ended. At some points in the story, I envied Delia. The woman’s lucky to have someone like that. Someone totally committed to her after just meeting her. So sweet!

Breaking Delia’s Rules is a short but entertaining read that is steamy, funny, romantic and oh so sexy. Definitely an unputdownable read. Come on its 60 pages! I love reads like these. Though rushed but still great.

He rested a large hand against her thigh and brushed lazy circles along the sensitive skin near her knee with his thumb. She inhaled sharply at the sparks zigzagging through her veins. 

"So how 'bout it?" Jace smiled. "Commit to one man for the rest of the cruise." 

She laughed, tugging off her glasses and setting them on top of her book. "Did you have someone in mind?" A sigh escaped her lips when he inched his fingers higher up her thigh. 

His hand stilled. "Yeah." Her pulse raced when he slid his gaze down her body a second time, and his continued touch did nothing to alleviate her predicament. 

Delia moistened her dry lips. She should leave before she did something stupid, like fling herself into his arms and demand hot, sweaty sex. 

"I should go." She stood, grabbing her book and glasses. 

Jace stood as well and clasped her hand. Butterflies took flight in her belly. He tugged hard enough to pull her off balance and she stumbled against him. 

"Hot date?" he asked. 

Delia stared into his eyes, her heart hammering at his closeness. "I..." She couldn't push any more words across her dry tongue. 

"You're just going to run?" 

The challenge in his voice pricked her feminine pride and she straightened. She had to let him know she was still in control. "You never said who you had in mind," she countered. Instead of stepping away, she moved closer. Every time she exhaled, her breasts brushed against his chest. Tingles trickled down her spine, but still she didn't step away. 

He smiled wolfishly. "I can't believe you haven't figured out who I have in mind." 

"I want to hear you say it," she said. 

"You do like a challenge." 

She grinned. "Who said I didn't?" 

"Good, 'cause here's one more." He dropped a kiss on her upturned mouth.
