Jake & Delilah's story is one of friendship turning into love, and is about the whole family & their struggles, rather than a romance between the two. The romance is happening, they are slowly falling in love (the book takes place over a longer period of time), but neither will allow themselves to acknowledge it. Jake is pretty sure he's happy being a manwhore, and Delilah feels trapped in the role her family has placed her in. With Jake, and Jake's family, she's allowed to be herself, but she feels that it's only temporary. And then tragedies strike, and they tear Jake & Delilah's world apart, even as they pull them closer together.
This is a very emotional read, very well written, and really worthy of a 5 star review. However, I did bounce between 4 & 5 stars as far as what makes a 5 star book for myself, so I would put it at 4.5. The only detraction from my enjoyment was that the happy times were tainted by the other thing going on in Delilah's life. I don't like when the female lead of a story takes quite this long to "wake up" to what's going on. It just detracts for me. But the ending? Oh, the ending was pretty flippin brilliant. :)
Blind Love is the third book in the Sulfur Heights series, it is the story of Jake and Delilah. Jake and Delilah are an unlikely match who become best friends through a mutual friend. Their relationship is strange and intense, they are from totally different worlds. Delilah grew up rich with a picture perfect life and Jake is from Sulfur heights where poverty, addiction and violence are the norm. Yet they bring out the best in each other, are they meant to be? They might be from opposite sides of the tracks but there is something very special between them. Will a tragedy in their lives bring them together or will it send Delilah running back to her perfect life?
M.S Brannon does something very unique with this novel. Blind Love and Tragic Love are happening simultaneously. While Tragic love is from Drake's and Presley's point of view, we get to see everything through Jake and Delilah's eyes in Blind Love. It was an incredible experience and M.S. Brannon did it flawlessly. Blind Love also fills us in on what happened after the end of Tragic Love but most of the novel is what was happening with Jake and Delilah during the same time period as Tragic Love. Jake and Delilah are amazing characters and it was wonderful to get to know their story. This novel was absolutely addictive. I loved Jake and Delilah in Tragic Love and often wondered just what was going on between them. The author has created such an amazing group of characters that I cannot get enough of them. Her stories are intense and emotional and leave you absolutely breathless by the time you are finished. I cannot wait to see what she comes up with next.
Jake is the rough hustler born on the wrong side of the tracks with the reputation for drinking and womanizing.
Delilah is the proper Southern bell raised to be the perfect daughter and potential wife to any respectable man.
The pair are chalk and cheese with almost nothing in common but from the moment their eyes met there was a spark between them but it's always been Delilahs sensible nature that has kept the distance. Things have changed in both their lives though following Presley and life just seems too short to always follow the right path.
Jake is probably the most lively enigmatic character of the whole series as he's just so open and honest except with himself. He has old wounds but always strives to push forward without feeling sorry for himself which is a quality you have to admire. Delilah was perfect for him really as she was the Princess that he truly deserved but would still keep him on his toes.
I feel awful giving it a 3.5* as I love this series but the majority of the book was basically re-telling Tragic Love from Jake and Delilah's p.o.v. with only the last quarter being about them moving forward which was really disappointing for me as I didn't need to see their reactions to form a complete picture.
I hope the next installment starts from a fresh perspective to drive the Series on rather than re-hashing past events.
I don't want to put anyone off though as I think the scenes we didn't see of Jake and Delilah before are a wonderful glimpse into them as a couple.
It was a slight bump in the road for me but I haven't given up my hope or affection for Sulfur Heights

I would give it five stars but it needs more editing. Too many times the wrong word was used or misspelled (e.g.Read more
