... the state of being morally bad
... corruption, perversion, shamelessness, lasciviousness
Jacob Chance has finally allowed his brilliant talent to shine. Don't get me wrong, I have enjoyed everything that Jacob has written so far, but with DEPRAVITY he just seems to climb further up the ladder. This story is full of so many emotions and two wonderful characters, that I simply couldn't put it down.
Miles Decker, thirty-three, single dad to precocious almost three year Joey, professor and a man still recovering from a relationship that left him completely shatter and forever cautious about entering another one. This man was divine, incredibly hot, occasionally stubborn, yet he was tender, caring and extremely lovable. Sophie Gardner, nineteen "almost twenty", student, babysitter, mature for her age, sassy, innocent, yet she is strong, resilient and very determined.
Their romance is considered to forbidden, there is a fourteen year age gap, he's a professor, she's a student, but sometimes forbidden needs to be put aside. The chemistry and attraction is instantaneous and close to boiling, but not immediately acted upon. After a rocky beginning a friendship develops, but how can two people fight what they really feel? Short answer, they can't!! A pact is made, but hearts will be broken.
I loved these two characters, and the more I read the more I became invested in them, both individually and as a couple. Both of them have their own flaws, but it is their positives that truly shine. The secondary characters of Sam, Tanner and Tenley superbly fit into Jacob's story perfectly, they provide wise words as well as humorous moments.
Jacob's style of writing, story flow and descriptions had the pace moving along at a steady pace. he doesn't overdramatise scenes, nor does he omit the factors that the reader needs. Everything he writes has a purpose, even the thoughts Miles has about the Dean of the University, that is why i enjoy Jacob's books so much.
This story is an absolute winner and definitely MUST BE READ. Excellent first book in a series from Jacob and Marley Valentine.
