ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date September 12, 2017
As one of Hollywood’s hottest producers, Kristian Bowen is on top of the world. With the Quantum team is fresh off a clean sweep of awards season and looking ahead to the premiere of their new film, Insidious, Kristian’s life is exactly how he likes it, complete with a stable of willing subs to tend to his every desire. Until he attends the wedding of his friend and business partner Flynn Godfrey and meets Aileen Gifford, the close friend of Flynn’s new wife, Natalie. Since meeting Aileen five months ago, Kristian’s carefully cultivated life has changed in ways he never could’ve expected. Now Aileen and her children are moving to Los Angeles, and he’s not sure whether to be excited or terrified about his powerful feelings for the single mom…
Aileen is coming off the worst year of her life, spent battling breast cancer while taking care of two young children. When Natalie, Flynn and their other friends encourage Aileen to move to LA and work for Quantum, she jumps at the chance to give her family a fresh start. And with her off-the-charts attraction to Flynn’s business partner in the mix, the idea of living in LA becomes that much sweeter. Until everyone shows up to welcome her and the kids to their new home in LA—except Kristian.
He can’t avoid her forever, and when these two finally see each other again, sparks fly between the single mom and the producer with a past he’s kept hidden from everyone who matters to him. When that past rears its ugly head, will he run away from the woman he loves or turn to her for comfort in the storm? And will she prevail in convincing him that he can be himself, in every possible way, with her?
Kristian and Aileen’s long-awaited story is full of heat, heart and humor, as well as appearances from all the Quantum characters readers love!
REVIEW: DELIRIOUS is the sixth installment in M.S. Force’s contemporary, adult QUANTUM erotic, BDSM, romance series. This is Hollywood producer and Quantum owner Kristian Bowen, and single mom/ PA Aileen Gifford’s story line. DELIRIOUS can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty but I recommend reading the series in order for cohesion and backstory. Books 1-3 are Flynn and Nat’s story, and each additional story line focuses on a different couple.
NOTE: DELIRIOUS is an erotic storyline with scenes of BDSM, spanking, bondage, anal and oral sex, as well as domination and submission.
Told from dual first person perspectives (Kristian and Aileen) DELIRIOUS follows the building relationship between Hollywood producer Kristian Bowen, and single mother Aileen Gifford. Aileen is a cancer survivor; a single mother of two young children who, with the encouragement and support of best friend Natalie and husband Flynn Godfrey, embarks on a cross country journey to start anew in Los Angeles, California. Five months earlier Aileen met and fell in love with producer Kristian Bowen, a man who keeps secret a dark and lonely past that could destroy everything he has become. With Aileen’s arrival in LA Kristian begins to withdraw believing he isn’t worthy of a woman like Aileen Gifford-a woman who proves to be stronger than the disease that almost destroyed her life. What ensues is the building romance between Aileen and Kristian, Aileen’s introduction into the BDSM lifestyle, and the potential fall out when Kristian’s early life becomes public knowledge.
The relationship between Kristian and Aileen is one of immediate attraction that continues to build with Aileen’s move to Los Angeles, California. Kristian’s dark past prevents our hero from moving forward believing himself unworthy of Aileen’s love. The $ex scenes are erotic, intense and seductive.
There is a large ensemble cast of secondary and supporting characters including all of the previous story line couples, as well as the introduction of Aileen’s children Logan and Maddie.
The world building continues to focus on the Quantum –both the production company and elite, private BDSM sex club.
DELIRIOUS is a sexy, edgy and heartbreaking story line of one man’s struggle between his public image and the truth about his past; and one woman’s battle to convince the man with whom she is falling in love, is worth everything and more. The premise is encouraging and entertaining; the characters are energetic, inspiring and intelligent; the romance is sensual, passionate and provocative. DELIRIOUS is an erotic, wicked and tender story of romance and love.
