Obsession (Book 1)
by S.M. Phillips
New Release and Review
Anna Jameson can't wait to escape the hell hole that her cousin has left her in. Desperate to escape her past, the idea of moving to stay with Holly whilst she got her head together sounded like the perfect plan... Until Holly upped and left, leaving Anna to pick up the mess that she left behind.
Jensen Blake knows what he wants and will not be told otherwise. Obedience and control are what he knows best. With demons of his own, he has spent most of his adult life traveling from place to place the moment things started to become predictable.
When Jensen and Anna are pushed together, an instant dislike simmers between them. Anna hates bad boys. She has witnessed enough of them to last her a lifetime.
The sexual attraction between them is evident but will that only make things harder for them both to handle?
The undercurrent of impending doom flows through the pages of this book from the very beginning. After finishing reading it, I am still not quite certain what it is that Anna did to Dominick that set off her current predicament. I also do not know what exactly did Mitchell do to Dominick that has caused him to pursue revenge relentlessly. This is the mystery that hopefully will be revealed in the next book in this series.
What is known is that Anna and Jensen are combustible to each other. She is the gasoline and he is the match. Their love affair is explosive and turbulent. They both are scared to lose their heart to the other and to have to deal with the consequences later.
As a story, this has a wonderful plotline. The advanced copy I received needed editing/proofreading so I cannot comment on that. The writer does use the idioms true to the United Kingdom, but if you are a fan of reading international authors, you will find this to be refreshing and delightful.
I am eagerly awaiting the next book. The end of book 1 is a cliffhanger and I am impatient to find out what happens next.
