Torn between a guilty pleasure love of The Billionaire's Beck and Call and giving critical reviews, I'm honestly dumbfounded by the ending of this series.
The plot picks up where the last installment left off. Isa and Chase are hot on the heels of Lex, whose attempt to flee the country is going pretty swimmingly. Though the situation is tense as the two men square off, there is nothing new about the situation that hasn't featured in cop dramas besides Isa.
Since she's the hero, it's only appropriate for her to shine here, which is a nice change from the usual man foiling the villain. Though Isa was never a doormat, Chase has brought such confidence and trust into her life and character through their relationship that she is able to cooly play the situation to her advantage.
This, however, is more of a subtle thing, but long-time readers will hopefully pick up on the changes that got them where they are in this finale.
Of course, in true Delilah Fawkes fashion, our story wraps not with hugs and laughter and love, but steamy, heavy, fetishy and leather-collared and gartered kink. There's no long, drawn tension for this scene, but oh, it's nice. Please feel free to think that you're prepared for it, because you aren't. It could make a wet bikini bottom burst into flame.
Also, there are some hugs and laughter and love. All in all, though this story brings nothing new to the table, both genre-wise or plot-wise, The Billionaire's Beck and Call is a delightful journey of a woman opening up and becoming somebody she never knew she could be. Other stories have done BDSM, romance and erotica, but none are Delilah Fawkes, and Delilah's writing is what makes this series so special.
