He was my brother’s best friend.
He was seven years older than me.
He was a pig when it came to casual sex; indulging in one night stands like they were going out of style.
So why did I want to tear his clothes off every time we got within five feet of each other?

She was only eighteen years old when we met for the first time.
She was a good girl who avoided bad boys like

Delve is my first novel by Jacob Chance. I thoroughly enjoyed it and was equally impressed. From my reading experience, I haven't read many male authors who could pull off romance and erotica that doesn't read like porn. Jacob Chance did a great job!

I was privileged to have beta read Delve by Jacob Chance. This book blew me away, Jacob's writing improves with each book he writes. He outdid himself with this one not only with the writing, but the sex scenes were off the charts explosive. It's definitely going to cause your panties to melt, a little advice don't wear them while reading it.

Derek and Kenna are complete opposites sometimes opposites do attract. Delve is sexy, steamy, a bit of mystery that will have you not wanting to stop readin

Jacob Chance.... your dark side is very appealing! With each book you seem to be getting more in touch with it and I for one, LOVE IT! Delve seems to hold so much more mystery and intrigue than the previous 2 books and it continues to increase, but I'll come back to that in a bit.

We were introduced to Derek Santiago (Kyle's best friend) and Kenna Mackenzie (Kyle's younger sister) in the previous books and now, finally these two get to share their story. Their story has a little bit of forbidden

4.5 " Little girl you don't want to play with this fire- you might get burned." Stars

Another delicious delivery by Jacob Chance.

I was so giddy when I found out Derek & Kenna were getting their own book. Their forbidden romance was sexy, thrilling.

Kenna is the younger sister of Kyle, Derek's best friend. She's off limits.
"She's only eighteen, I remind myself."

It didn't help that she was equally attracted to Derek.
"She unabashedly looks me over from head to toe."

What really didn't help was

I just recently was recommended to read Jacob's books. Wow, I read the 1st two books and I was wow, left me breathless.

Delve was wickedly naughty and deliciously sexy. Derek OMG!!!!! I think that every woman in America needs a Derek in her life. He was just all types of hotness. This series has been like 50 shades meets Hawaii 5-0

Kenna is my girl. I freaking absolutely love her. She is strong and that's something I really like.

I can't wait for what's next because I'm a fan now.

Jacob, your writing is so amazing. In fact, I think I have fallen in love with you because of it. You always use the perfect amount of everything to entice us to keep reading. There's funny parts, serious parts, sexy parts, we really get a well-rounded book. I can't seem to get enough of this series!

We didn't see a whole lot of Derrick other than knowing how loyal of a friend he was, and we got to see a lot more of Kenna in the last book. I was so excited to see a best friend/little sister roman

Dear lord this was HOT!!! Super sexy from the get-go! I was immediately sucked into this story and couldn't get enough! The suspense was amazing and the sex was steamy!

Delve is the latest release from Jacob Chance, and tells the story of the forbidden romance between Derek and his best friends little sister, Kenna. He has produced a story that skillfully weaves sexual tension, suspense and humour, without ever losing the emotional connection that drives the relationship between the two leads.

Kenna is a spirited, passionate woman who has her life together. She has a job she loves, a close relationship with her brother and fulfilling friendships. But she has als

This is Derek and Kenna's book and dear lord can we talk about Derek for a minute please. Good god he is hot and dirty, just the way I like them. He and Kenna have known each other for many years and he is Kenna's brother Kyle's best friend and he is quite a bit older than Kenna.

This review of Delve by Jacob Chance is for The Sweet Spot Sisterhood Blog. Jacob Chance has another hit on his hands. I couldn't wait to read Delve. This book is an interconnected standalone in the Quake and Quiver series. So you need not have read the first two. Delve is the story of Kenna, Kyle's little sister and Derek, Kyle's best friend. Jenna and Derek have been skating around their feelings for a while now. What will happen if the finally give in? Sexual tension at its finest! Be sure to ...more

Loved reading the story of Derek and Kenna and the flashbacks to when they first met to when things started to develop to the present day. Gah Derek is just so damn naughty and hot, who wouldn't love him and I love the whole personality of Kenna and what a string woman she is. These two together are just WOW! The story had that twist that I always love finding cause you're not expecting it and keeps you on your toes. Loved loved loved. This is my voluntary review and unbiased opinion.

Move over Kyle and make way for Derek! I absolutely loved how cocky he was, and Kenna was always quick with a response. I loved the banter between them. It also had the right amount of suspense that kept me guessing right up to the end of the book. I can't wait for Jacobs next release!

Delve is the forbidden romance about Kenna McKenzie and Derek Santiago. We got a glimpse of these two characters in Quake and Quiver and now we are treated to more of them. He’s seven years older and has been sworn off by her brother Kyle, who would literally bends over backwards for his little sister. It just happens that Kyle and Derek are best friends and partners in a private investigation company which doesn't help matters, either. She was on

Delve … what can I say? This book is by far my favorite from Jacob Chance. Honestly there are not enough words I can use to describe how awesome this book was. It’s hot, addictive, and I was unable to stop reading once I started. I mean, it’s a forbidden romance! I love a good forbidden read, and Delve has definitely made my top favorite list of books I’ve read. I really can’t praise this book high enough. Derek and Kenna are just the perfect couple, and I could literally feel the chemistry bet

This up and coming author is proving himself once again with his 3rd book, DELVE. We meet the two main characters in his duet QUAKE and QUIVER. Kenna is the younger sister to Kyle and Kyle is Derek's best friend and business partner. This book can be read as a stand alone, although it was great to see Kyle and Janny again.

I continue to be amazed by this author. Romantic suspense gives me the creeps most of the time. But Jacob Chance weaves it in so seamlessly, you don't know it's there until it

I started Delve last night and was instantly hooked! I literally had it finished within a few hours because I could not put it down!

The moment Derek Santiago's eyes fall on Kenna McKenzie he can't help but be smitten. He falls for her instantly. However, he soon discovers the gorgeous girl he wants so desperately, is in fact his best friend's younger sister. She's the forbidden fruit. So, to keep his friendship intact, he reluctantly pushes her away.

Kenna also feels the same pull to her older br

I am not exactly sure where to begin with his review because I refuse to spoil the book for anyone! So… let's start with the good points: I really enjoyed the book! While it’s listed as a stand alone and I see where one could read it and keep up, I strongly suggest reading Quake and Quiver first to get the full enjoyment out of this storyline as well as having a better insight into all the characters. Another great thing is who doesn’t want to root for a bad boy who truly deserves a break, they ...more

This is the first book of Jacob's I've read and let me tell you I'm hooked. His writing is phenomenal. Delve is a continuation of the Quake, Quiver series. Delve opens the series to Derek, Kyle's partner and Kenna. Kyle's younger sister. Derek has feelings for her from the first time he meets her when she's 18. Keeps them under wraps. Bring it to present day and Kenna is no longer 18 years old, she is a full time nurse in the ER, has her own apartment and is Kyle's best friend. When Kenna and De ...more

WOW! What can I say about this book. As much as I loved Quake and Quiver, Delve is definitely my favourite, who wouldn’t love a dirty talking biker Private investigator, I sure did!

Jacob Chance pushes his boundaries just a little further with this book and god I loved it! This is a little darker than the last two but so worth it.

I absolutely loved Delve. Jacob's writing gets better and better with each book he writes.

This book made me swoon.
It made my heart race.

Derek is a sweetheart and hot as hell. There were moments where you'll want to hug him and others where his alpha persona will make you groan and squirm. He's a man who knows what he wants.. And he want's Kenna, bad.

Kenna is an independent woman who doesn't take shit from anyone. She's not just your average woman who is willing to be just another not

This book gave me so many different feels! I absolutely loved everything from the first word to the last and everything in between.

Derek and Kenna's chemistry was off the charts scorching hot that you could feel it coming off the pages. It was so well written that I became a part of their story and felt everything they did. There is a bit of mystery woven in that kept me intrigued as to where it was going next and I literally read it in a couple of hours. Brilliantly written! It is a must read

This is my favorite book by Jacob so far. Derek and Kenna's story was hot, suspenseful and just plain beautiful. When I started reading this book I couldn't stop until I finished. He hooked from the first page until the last. So much happened that I didn't see coming. I absolutely loved all of the characters. I didn't want this book to end, when I finished I wanted more of Derek and Kenna. I absolutely loved this book. This book is a must read book.

I love brother's bf romances and this book is just one of the reasons why, I was blown away. Derek is sexy as hell and can use his mouth to bring you to your knees and the way that Keena gets under his skin I just loved it. The chemistry between these two is hot. The story was great definitely more than I bargin for. We get , sex, love and maybe a tad morr. I don't want to spoil it, but you get a great book , with some great characters and I can't wait for book 2. loved it.
