Episode Four Excerpt:
“Tonight is about us, no one else, and that’s the way I want it to stay. No more interruptions,” Derek said.
I took a deep breath and reached for my wine. I wasn’t going to let my brain jump to conclusions. This weekend was about us. Not Taylor. Not Reed. “I agree.”
He leaned into the table, his hand moving higher up my leg. “Kiss me.”
We weren’t in a back booth, and this restaurant wasn’t nearly as private as The Hole. There were more servers, a more open floor plan, many other tables close by. What he was asking for was much more than the peck I had given him before I’d gone to the bathroom. “Those fingers,” I said, placing my hand on top of them, “aren’t planning on going any higher, are they?”
He licked his bottom lip, teasing me with just the swipe of his tongue and the whiskers that surrounded it. “They weren’t, no. But now that I know it’s on your mind, I’m not sure I’ll be able to stop them.”

My Unblocked: Episode Four Review ...
In the last episode we are left with Frankie having to decide between her career or her heart. Derek knows something has changed. Now he just has to convince himself, Hayden and Frankie of what he wants.
"If at any point I feel like you're choosing her over this ..."
I have to admit Hayden is NOT winning me over in this series. I will wait to the full truth comes out to make a final judgement but right now she is more on the side of grrrr then yeah.
After Frankie is ambushed by the people closest to her, they convince her that she can have both. Derek also agrees to this plan but but has to convince Frankie that he's all in. Even though it started as sex only for them both, it's now elevated to something so much more.
"Yes, I want you, Frankie-more than I've ever wanted anyone. I think about you; I hunger for you. I'm weakened by you. I don't believe you have to make a choice. ... "
Derek may have originally charged ahead where it came to Frankie but now he wants more. So for the first time in a long time he tries to do the right thing and wait for Frankie to decide what she wants.
"When you've decided that it's me who you want and I know there's no question in your mind, I'll touch you. But not before then."
Finally Frankie and Derek take their relationship to the next level only for the past to come back full throttle. Ugh! While we finally get a glimpse of what can be with these two, Derek's secrets are coming closer to the surface threatening to cause trouble for his retribution and his future with Frankie.
I can NOT frigging wait till episode 5 as I NEED to know what's going to happen. So many elements are still left unturned and only one episode left. Even though their relationship is escalating to the next level we still have tons of steam between these two. I absolutely love this serial series. It has a great balance of sex and substance. From the beginning I have been encaptured and have loved every moment of the journey so far.
