I’ve been in her apartment numerous times, learning anything and everything I can about her. She’s become an obsession and I’ll do whatever it takes to make her mine.

INCREDIBLE! A MUST READ!!

ASTOUNDING!!

I voluntarily read an ARC of DELUDE.

I was completely blown away by this book. I knew from the beginning Jacob would have something great with this book!

My emotions fluctuated throughout the entire book! And when it ended I was longing for more.

Zack is a troubled, lost man who has done unspeakable things in his past and is haunted by them.

Lana is such a sweet young woman who just wants a love like her friends, but doesn't want to put herself out there. She is

I don't really know where to begin here but to say, in my mind, the author had a massive job ahead of him if I was going to change my mind & my feelings towards Zack.

Yes, Zack. The Zack.
You know, the Bad Guy. The creepy stalker. The borderline psychopath with sociopathic tendencies. Him. That Zack.

WWWelp... Jacob Chance & his story-telling, word weaving, plot revealing magic did it. I've changed my mind.

But it's bigger than that.

Just when I thought Jacob Chance couldn't get any better, he brings us Delude and knocks it out the park. This is Zack and Lana's story. We first met Zack in Quiver when he had that whole stalker/psycho thing going on with Janny. Then we see him again in Tied only this time it's sweet sweet Lana he has become obsessed with.
Both Zack and Lana are broken in different ways, they both carry the scars of their pasts. When Lana and Zack meet she has no idea who he is and the things he has done to her

I have never thought it possible to fall in love with a book and a character that is utterly, and completely beautifully psychotic! Jacob Chance has written a masterpiece of words, DELUDE. The main character, Zack, is quite delusional, with a splash of psychosis. He manages to still be extremely SEXY and Erotic while simultaneously being a creepy, stalker.

Like most villainous characters, Zack has endured his share of turmoil and hardship throughout his life that has brought him to this crossroa

Delude by Jacob Chance was a well written, sexy, and very conflicting read for me, but finally there are 'No More Secrets.'

Oh where to start with Zach. The creepy bastard that he is, has been hell bent on getting revenge on Kyle for 4 books now. But with this one, all he wants is a chance for love and a real relationship with Lana. (Note why I'm so conflicted, one look at her, had him deviating from his original plans, and acting somewhat normal.) Knowing she would know some of what he did to J

Oh my gosh my view on Zack has been completely turned around. I'm absolutely swooning over this man and what he shares with Lana. We get glimpses into Lana's past and it makes you draw conclusions as to what happened, over time we find out and damn I was not thinking that at all. Zack on the other hand we're directly made aware of what happened to him in his childhood, it just breaks my heart. Once we learn more about how Zack grew up it starts to make sense as to why as to he chose the path he ...more

Delude by Jacob Chance is the story of Lana and Zack, we were first introduced to Zack in Quiver. Zack is the "creepy stalker guy" the guy you want to hate but deep down you fall in love with. The detail of story was thoroughly thought out, the writing was phenomenal, the suspense and mystery added are enough to keep you engaged from the first page until the very end. Let's not forget the HOT sex between the two. Delude can be read as a standalone, I would recommend reading Jacob's previous book ...more

Now, there are no more secrets between us...

I honestly loved this story so much. This is probably my favorite book from Jacob Chance.

And Zach is definitely my favorite character he ever wrote. I know that's weird because Zach is crazy but i really loved how the author redeemed him regardless of him admitting killing Zach off back in Delve >.<

He had a very hard breaking story and Lana as well. They were two broken characters that redeemed each other. And that is beautiful to me <3

Delude: to impose a misleading belief upon (someone); deceive; fool.

So I went into this book believing one thing, but what I came out of it knowing was something totally different and completely unexpected. Surprised, not only by the story line, but the feelings and emotions that were evoked in me. I have read all of Jacob's published work and from the beginning I have been a huge fan and supporter. This one, I think is Jacob's best. To. Date. And yes, you have most likely heard that from me be

I am at a complete loss as to how to write this review without spoiling this one (and spoiling a book is something I never wish to do). I’ll start by saying I have kept up with with this series from the start and Delude is like the icing on a cake. It not only ties up a lot of loose ends it had this reader glued to the pages and feeling every emotion under the sun. I am not really sure what it says about me as a person but I actually found myself rooting for things I know I shouldn’t and hoping ...more
Zachary, the secrets are out...
Voluntarily give this review from ARC received yesterday. But am not biased, I'm gonna buy it when it comes out - it's that good.

Seriously.Good.

This is the latest in the series from Jacob Chance and whilst the plot is a slightly darker segue from his other stories it felt like it remained true to the core of the series.

DELUDE is exactly what people have been talking about since Jacob Chance released his book a few weeks ago. EXCITING and THRILLING with so much more. Just last year, this author was talking about releasing his first book and now here we are on book #5.

When you're first introduced to Zack in The Quake Series, you instantly want nothing but to hate this guy. He is a bad guy and and someone you want to see destroyed. I couldn't figure out how this author was going to make him into a character that

I absolutely loved this book! There are so many things that made it a great read. The characters made me want to live the story. Both Lana and Zack felt like real people to me. Both have pasts that made them who they are in the present. Zack is an independent man who has never allowed himself to depend on anyone, especially women. He’s definitely a different man than most, both mentally and physical scared by mistakes that were both in and out of his control at different times in his life. He’s ...more
I am a sucker for a good series; I become invested in storylines and want to know as much as I can about everyone. As each secondary character is introduced, I hold on to hope that the author decides to explore their story and share it with their readers. When Zack Weston was first mentioned in QUIVER, who knew that a book about a character with unforgiving qualities and his journey to find happiness would be one of my most anticipated reads of 2017.

The thing I love about Jacob Chance is that each book he writes seems to get better. Delude is simply amazing. It's a crazy hot story about two broken souls who seem to find peace together, despite the awful things that have happened in their pasts. I tend to love my book characters dark with crazy twisted minds and Zack truly fits that description. I totally fell in love with Zack, I even found his psychotic tendencies hot! Lana was real sweet and I really liked her too. The hot sexy scenes and ...more

This book is about the man who, I admit, scares the crap out of me. We have seen him in the background in previous books by this author. Watching. Stalking. Planning. He starts out on a mission of revenge. Things don’t go his way at all. This book overlaps some of the events from previous books in the Quake series.
As he plots his next move, Zack happens upon Lana. He didn’t want to want her. He should have stayed away. But, as we all know, we can’t help who we fall in love with. Lana has her de

DELUDE by Jacob Chance
I believe there were some prior books that told more of the back story to this book, Delude. However you can still read Delude without having read the previous books. This is the story of Zach, a monster with so many hidden demons of his own. He is also out for revenge. When he decides to go after anyone who is close to Kyle, he did not bargain for Lana. She shatters his careful laid out plans. The instant chemistry that Zach feels for Lana can be felt all the way through

I like crazy and twisted stories. I haven’t read the previous books but the blurb intrigued me and I was curious. I read it and then I was torn. A man on a mission for revenge, anything or anyone is good to reach his goal, whatever the consequences.

A short and a bit wild story but I wanted more. I think it needed more expanding, especially with Zack’s issues.

Zack has a painful past. Angry, bitter and obsessed with revenge. Until this obsession tur

Another good one by Jacob Chance! I was really pleased with how this book was written. It had the perfect amount of background story, so if you read this as a stand alone book you wouldn't be totally lost. I don't want to give too much of the story away but this is a definite must read and it'll definitely leave you with some wet panties ;)

I think it was by chance that i fell upon the Chance brothers and took a glimpse in what they wrote. I was instantly intrigued. I'm so incredibly ashamed to admit that although i have a few of Jacob Chance's novels in my kindle, i haven't had an opportunity to read them yet, but boy am i glad that Delude was the first one i cracked open.

Delude if I am not mistaken is Jacob Chance's fourth book. I feel pretty damn lucky to be one of those readers that has witnessed how amazing each story gets. I know I may sound repetitive in my review when it comes to this author but Chance has this way of writing a short story and giving me those strong characters, great story lines (dark, funny, suspenseful and erotic), and can give me that ending I want or pushes that emotion of leaving me hanging off a cliff.

Oh boy! If you've read Quake, Quiver, Delve, and Tied - then like me, you may have been a bit anxious to see how in the heck Mr. Chance could work this story in order to make Zach a sympathetic character. Amazingly, not only did I find myself sympathizing with Zach, but somehow I found myself rooting for him and Lana!

I LOVE Jacob.

Ok, let me clarify. I love Jacob's writing. I don't know how he does it, but he combines the perfect amount of sweetness, suspense and sex, in one glorious story.

Zack is from Jacobs previous novels, and while this book is technically a stand alone, I HIGHLY recommend reading Quake, Quiver and Delve prior to this. It will only help enhance your Zack experience, I promise!

Zack is a complicated character that you will have a deep love/hate relationship with. He's nothing short of a mon

Let me start by saying this is the first book I've read by Jacob Chance. Now, I need to go back and read the Quiver, Quake and Delve! I knew nothing about Zack coming into this story, but it doesn't take long to figure out that he's...ummmm... got some issues. He's a bit of a creeper, a bit of a stalker and a bit of a monster.

Having said all that, Jacob Chance does a masterful job of making him into a character that I grew to care about and even root for by the end. I'm not sure how I ended up

What a great read! I absolutely love how Jacob took a character I really loved to hate – and made me love him – not only love him, but full on root for him!! This story is beautiful - with love truly conquering all – a dark and shattered childhood, broken promises, guilt, doubt, the deep rooted want of revenge. While there are several painful subjects discussed - Jacob handles them with a great sensitivity. A well written must read!!!
While you do not necessarily have to read Quake, Quiver, Delve
