Lana Finch is a twenty-five-year-old social worker. She believes wholeheartedly in saving the world—one broken kid at a time. Lana is headstrong, she’s righteous and she’ll let nothing stand in her way. Except for maybe her entire family that’s financially dependent on her.
Enter Mozey Cruz, the eighteen-year-old juvenile delinquent assigned to her charge. He’s an illusive artist, he’s misunderstood, and he’s a natural born troublemaker.
Their love is illegal, much like Mozey’s undocumented status in the States. So Lana lets him go even though it might be the worst mistake she’ll ever make.
But destiny has a way of catching up with us even when we run from it.
But first, Lana has to find him before she can deliver him.
Lana Finch is an idealist. She thinks that everyone deserves another chance at making things right. Even criminals.
When the file for Moisés Roberto Robles de la Cruz lands on her desk, she has no idea what she’s in for. He’s intelligent, talented, sinfully gorgeous and only eighteen. She knows that the instant attraction that they feel for each other will never amount to anything but the more she learns about this beautiful boy, the harder she falls for him.
A sadder story, I’ve never known. The bravery it took to tell it— I’ll probably never encounter again. I loved Mozey before, but now I’m in awe of him. How did he turn out so incredible when his journey wasn’t only painful, it was torturous?
Mozey Cruz wanted Lana from the moment that her first laid eyes on her. She always kept him at arms length regardless of how many times he let her know that he wanted to be more. Time passes and things inevitably change – except his desire for the one woman that he can never have.
“Without those experiences, Lana, I wouldn’t be standing here in front of you. I was only messing with you before. I’ve been dying to kiss you. Watching your mouth while you sleep is the worst kind of torture.”
It’s no secret that I am a passionate Mara White fan! Her heroines are some of the most intricately written in the romance genre today. They struggle to come to terms with the amazing power of their sexuality and have to deal with how that impacts the reality of their lives. They make their own choices and owe no apologies – regardless of societal norms. This is one of the many reasons that I find her work so completely engrossing.
The Delivery at its heart is the purest of love stories and it unfolds under the saddest of circumstances. It deals with inequality of all kinds and in the end it proves that love can truly conquer them all – and I’m a believer…

Monday morning is bad. I’m a complete wack job.
