I've not heard of this Author until now and I'm impressed, so I will definitely be reading more of her books. When I read the blurb I knew I had to read it and I wasnt disappointed.
April is great, she is successful woman and hosts a t.v. show. With recently splitting up from her boyfriend who preferred alcohol to her, the last thing on her mind is men! April begins to get phone calls from her ex's no and it would seem her ex is becoming a bit of a stalker.
In comes hotter than hot Jude (swoon). He has been hired by April's brother to protect her until her stalker is caught. I will tell you that things start to get very interesting!
This is written well and there are a few twists along the way, I do love a book with a twist or two that I wasn't expecting! I would definitely recommend this book. I thoroughly enjoyed it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Deadly Obsession ~ 4.5 stars 8 July 2017
By Marieke - Published on

Long before I started to read romantic stories, thrillers, mysteries and suspense were my ‘crack’. I loved the stories, to discover with the characters what was going on in their world. When I started to read romance, soon I found the romantic-suspense subgenre. I love the romantic part of those stories, but somehow the suspense part is mostly a bit… to over-the-top? I need to stop rambling. Deadly Obsession by J. Lea. It’s my first book by this author, and it has pleasantly surprised me. I love April and Jude, and their whole story, suspense part included.

“I suddenly can’t breathe. I need air. Turning around and running outside the house, I fall to my knees on my porch. I try to fill my lungs with air. Breathe, breathe, breathe. Just breathe.”

April is a hardworking woman, who has landed her dream job as host of a tv show. She loves her job and has a great team of colleagues, but her love life is not so perfect. She has broken up with her good-for-nothing boyfriend, and since then things seem off. Her brother Max doesn’t want to wait till anything happens with his sister, so he hires a private detective to keep a close eye on her. To April’s shock Jude is no stranger to her…

Jude doesn’t do relationships. After having witnessed the problems his parents went through because of his father’s work, he has decided no woman for him. Casual hookups on the other hand give him just what he needs. When an acquaintance from college hires him to protect his younger sister, Jude isn’t happy about it, but when he finds out who he will be protecting…

“Him? Eyes, green like emeralds. Brown, silky soft hair I could run my hands through for an eternity. A sculptured body with rippling muscle. I swallow hard. No, no no. It can’t be him. But it is.”

After a passionate night with no names and contact details April and Jude went on to live their lives. Now, two years later, they are back together but under much different circumstances. April is afraid (and not without reason) for her ex-boyfriend and Jude is the one protecting her from harm. Spending so much time together makes the couple realize there’s far more between them than just a sexual chemistry. But when April’s situation takes a turn for the worse, everything between Jude and April changes.

April and Jude are a great couple with some history, but it’s not one with broken hearts and hurt feelings. While the suspense part in some romantic books make my eyes roll (sorry…), I like how all plays out in this story. It was a little twist I didn’t see coming, but it’s realistic and not too far-fetched. I love April and how she tries to deal with the whole situation. She naturally wants to be safe, but she also doesn’t want to give up her life. Jude… I think you’re a great guy… But don’t listen to that little guy in your head. What you did to April was not okay, I would have let you grovel a bit longer…

“You’re mine, forever.” “You’re right. I’m yours. Now shut up and show me how much you’ve missed me.” “Yes, ma’am.”

I love Deadly Obsession, I give the story of Jude and April 4.5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely a Page Turner!!! 14 July 2017

Typically a book has to grab my attention within the first ten or so pages...However, with this one, it didn't take that long. This was a combination of mystery/suspense/OMG with the right amount of shock factoring, love and lust....not necessarily in that order! This was the first book I've ever read from this author. I am most won't be my last!!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay read - didn't like h 26 June 2017
By Debbie - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
April is being stalked and the threats are getting more and more dangerous. Her over protective brother Max hires an ex-defective to watch over April and keep her safe. Turns out the guy Max hired is Jude, the man she shared a memorable one night stand with two years prior. Memorable enough that neither she nor Jude have forgotten about it.

April's character is a selfish, bratty pain in the a$$. Throwing multiple fits; sneaking away to make phone calls when told it's not safe; stomping her feet and screaming; snatching other people's phones; locking herself in rooms; etc. The threats suggest kidnapping or worst, and all April does is put herself and others in danger. I get she's stressed and annoyed about the inconvenience of having her life turned upside down, but Jude was trying to keep her safe and her constant snide comments were juvenile and drove me crazy. I liked Jude's character for the most part, or at least I did until he made a decision I thought was selfish. At that point, I just skimmed the remainder of the book to see how it ended.

Overall Deadly Obsession was just an okay read but not one I would read again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Addictive story, page turner! 11 March 2017
By W. Seaman - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This story sucked me in right from the beginning. April finds herself the target of an ex-boyfriend's stalking ways and his obsession goes beyond benign. In worry, April's brother Max hires Jude, a private investigator, to keep his sister safe. What Max doesn't know is April and Jude have met before.

The story is fast and keeps you on your toes. When you think April is safe and having a good day, something happens to send her back on edge. Thankfully, she has Jude there protecting her. While Jude is protecting her, they become closer and their time together begins to fill with angst and lust. But her stalker starts to hurt the people around her. At what lengths with this mad man go to get to her? April doesn't want the people close to her to get hurt, so she goes into action to try to help find her stalker. Will she succeed? Who else will get hurt?

This was my first read by J. Lea and I was very happy with the writing, story, pace of the story. I'm definitely interested in checking out other stories and would recommend this read.
