I couldn't resist the synopsis of this novel so I gave it a try. Quite surprising.

OBSESSION by ANN MAYBURN

   This is a STANDALONE dark(ish) erotic romance 
with insta-obsession between two damaged soulmates
(no cheating-HEA-no cliffhanger) 

  Hannah All my life, I've only wanted one thing: someone to love me and someone who will let me love them in return. This seems like a simple request, but I was born to parents who wished I had died of childhood leukemia, instead of my younger sister, and who have ignored me no matter how much I've tried to please them. I'm starved for affection, addicted to the feeling when someone cares about me, which has led to a love life filled with either boys I've scared off, or men all too eager to take advantage of me. I thought I would never find a man who could feed my craving for constant attention--and then I met Leo. He fills the void inside of me, haunts my dreams, and does things to me in bed that are so good, they're probably illegal. I can only pray I don't scare him off once he figures out just how needy I really am. 

  Leo There are very few people in this world I've ever been able to form an emotional attachment to, but the moment I saw Hannah, I knew she was mine. We were bound together by fate, our paths crossing first as children, then as adults, each time marking me. She doesn't know it but I've been watching her for a year now, studying her, stacking the deck so when I do make my move, there's no way she'll ever escape me. But my world is a harsh, cruel place, and the cartel I work for demands absolute loyalty and trust...a loyalty Hannah has yet to earn in the dangerous eyes of my employers. There is only one way to ensure Hannah's absolute devotion, and I hope that she doesn't hate me forever when she finds out that not only have I brainwashed her into loving me, but that I don't feel an ounce of guilt about doing it. She's mine, only mine, and I'm keeping her forever. Warning: This story features a rough and demanding Dom who's completely devoted to bringing his baby girl pleasure through such unconventional means as spanking, mild BDSM, D/S, roleplaying, and various other forms of wicked kinkery. 



MY OPINION

This story is surprising, to say the least. A blend of dark romance, brain-washing sex enslavement fantasy, criminal underground and D/s dynamics.

It's also so much more. A long novel, it's written in a rich style with double POV that delves into the lives of two people who seem complete opposites but mend each other's loneliness. Hannah's feelings are naïve and very sweet, she's starved for real affection. Unknowingly to her, this Viking predator preys on her most vulnerable needs to belong and be loved, and he sets up a perfectly dark trap to possess her, body and soul, and never let her go.

I indulged in my naughtiest side with this story. It's scorching hot with plenty of steamy scenes that go beyond the typical coupling. What makes it different from other dark romances is all these elements that combine so well. The criminals who suffer deep betrayals and pain, the complex emotional hurt that lurks behind the experiment they craft to avoid it in the future, and also this couple who match so well together with their quirky kinks.

There are many things I enjoyed. The friends and family members that explain many situations around the main characters and also help shape the plot. I loved how crazily stalkerish Leo is because he does most things with Hannah's happiness in mind. The first part of the novel is devoted to how they meet, how his plans develop and work, how their relationship flourishes in the midst of lust and trust. The second part is full of violence, dark realizations and harsh redemption. I enjoyed it a lot.

ABOUT THE MASTERMIND

With over forty published books, Ann is Queen of the Castle to her husband and three sons in the mountains of West Virginia. In her past lives she's been an Import Broker, a Communications Specialist, a US Navy Civilian Contractor, a Bartender/Waitress, and an actor at the Michigan Renaissance Festival. She also spent a summer touring with the Grateful Dead-though she will deny to her children that it ever happened. 

 From a young Ann has had a love affair with books would read everything she could get her hands on. As Ann grew older, and her hormones kicked in, she discovered bodice ripping Fabio-esque romance novels. They were great at first, but she soon grew tired of the endless stories with a big wonderful emotional buildup to really short and crappy sex. Never a big fan of purple prose, throbbing spears of fleshy pleasure and wet honey pots make her giggle, she sought out books that gave the sex scenes in the story just as much detail and plot as everything else-without using cringe worthy euphemisms. This led her to the wonderful world of Erotic Romance, and she's never looked back. Now Ann spends her days trying to tune out cartoons playing in the background to get into her 'sexy space' and has accepted that her Muse has a severe case of ADD.


Enjoy your week, book buddies :o)
