2.0 out of 5 stars Suspends Belief To The Extreme....... 22 April 2015
By S.A.S. - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a decently written book and at .99 cents it is a bargain. The sample was very good and based on what I read, along with the reviews, I promptly purchased it. My mistake. I did not enjoy this book. I struggled to finish it. The beginning of this book had my interest but quite swiftly went to heck in a hand basket. This is another insta-love. Authors should state this in their book descriptions. It's a trigger for me. A trigger because it's boring. Why does Jake(H) instantly fall for Ella(h)? Why, because she is beautiful of course. What other reason would a man need? The reader is told repeatedly how beautiful and irresistible Ella is. Her beauty is supported by the fact that all the men in this story cannot resist her. They all want her. Blah, Blah, Blah. Unoriginal and shallow. This has been done to death.

Jake is obsessed with Ella but she is with another man, a man she has no intention of leaving. There is a reason for this but I will not explain or give any spoilers. Well, I will try not to. The reason is the whole basis for the thriller portion of this book. I will get to that. Jake's obsession with Ella makes him a very jealous man. Everyman wants her and this puts Jake into a rage, a rage that is just an excuse for him to go all he-man and possessive on Ella and prove to her, sexually of course, that she belongs to him. That got boring. I saw those scenes coming and promptly skipped through those contrived sex scenes. However, those contrived sex scenes were a perfect format for Jake to utter, the done to death, he-man Alpha dialogue that ends up just sounding corny as heck to me. Is there at least one fictional Alpha male out there that can say anything original? Must they all be fictional Alpha clones?

The plot was totally implausible and suspends belief. Mine anyway. Could a serial killer be more stupid? He catches Ella and takes her to the house next door. Her friends house. The one next to hers. Hmm....No one would think to look there. Good plan. Guess how that worked out? This guy has eluded the FBI for a very long time and made some pretty smart, yes implausible, moves and this was his brilliant final plan? And the FBI involvement? Training a woman to be a submissive masochist for four months by a sadist Dom all under the premise to catch a serial killer. A serial killer who is suspected of killing Ella's sister? Can you imagine the government liability on that one? Suspends belief. Too much fiction to be even remotely plausible. And do not get your hopes up. All BDSM scenes are "off camera" or only eluded to. This book contains only rough vanilla sex.

There are many more implausible/suspends belief aspects to this story that were presented for the sole purpose of contrived angst, but I've said enough. In addition to what I have already mentioned, this book dragged. It just wouldn't end. It kept going and going and going. Everything turned out perfect for Jake and Ella. They live happily ever after in everlasting lust for each other. This was/is described at, what seemed like endless pages, the end of this story. I didn't care. I skimmed and skimmed.....and longed for the end. Finally it came. No, I would not recommend. But for the price? .99 cents? Check it out. Other reviewers liked it. Maybe you will too.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Intriguing Romantic Suspense With Twists and Turns! 15 April 2015
By Ms. D - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This romantic suspense story is darker than the other books by Ms. Paige and will push some readers' boundaries. There are warnings of triggers and deviant sexual behavior given up front so some readers should proceed with caution.

The first chapter of the story pulled me right in and I wanted to see where it was going. The reader is immediately presented with two main characters that are sexually obsessed with one another. Jake is a dirty talking alpha male that wants the mysterious temptress Ella even when he discovers she is already in a relationship. Physical evidence from her S&M lifestyle with her lover shout "abuse" to Jake. He wants to rescue her from this terrible relationship. Ella refuses to leave her lover, and Jake decides he can't live with being the other man. He walks away.

So I was ready to throw my kindle at this point….. but I kept going. All hell breaks loose, and Jake can't let Ella go ever again. I have to find out why. I just know there is more to this woman than what is happening on the surface. Of course there is!

The suspense plot that has this couple skirting danger at every turn involves a serial killer making women disappear. If the reader can hang in there through chapter five, it won't take long to find out that there is a lot more going on with Ella's lifestyle. She is living a screwed up life for a tragic reason, but you have to keep reading to find out why before judging her. Ella is strong and determined to handle things that are quite dangerous on her own and way out of her league at times. Some of her choices left me uncomfortable even though I understood her motives. I was frustrated at times when she took unnecessary chances that brought on Jake's protective and angry reactions which I felt were justified.

Jake is determined to keep her safe and forge a deep and lasting relationship during all this drama. His actions are sometimes hard to tolerate even though you know his nature is to be in control and dictate the couple's sexual escapades. He is an over the top alpha who enjoys rough sex play. He also has a dark history that makes him fight ruthlessly for what he wants. For some there may be times that he crosses the line in his jealous and possessive behavior, but he also can admit when he is wrong and apologize. Ella calls him on his extreme behavior. They do work on their problems and come to some compromises or at least acceptance of their needs and desires.

There is a murder mystery at the center of this couple's journey. Jake can't stay away from the woman in the middle of it. She brings excitement as well as heartache to his life. This white knight wants to save this woman from herself. There is more to her dark life than meets the eye and watching Jake unravel the mystery of Ella kept me intrigued. The couple tries to build a life while evading a serial killer. Even though there is cheating at the beginning, once I knew why, it was something I could overlook for the sake of the unfolding suspense story. The plot explains this trigger that I normally will not tolerate in my romances.
Ella's relationship with the sadist is used as a tool to conceal the heroine's motives and solve the identity of the murderer. She never expected to meet and fall hard for Jake and can't explain her circumstances. *END OF SPOILERS*

I was uncomfortable with parts of this story at times, but the story was still riveting, the sex was hot, and I found myself rooting for the couple despite some of the dark elements and the characters' faults. This can be credited to the writing of the author. I commend her for pushing the envelope while still giving me a love story with a HEA. I enjoyed this suspense story, and I grew to like the strong alpha with extreme jealous and possessive tendencies and the woman of mystery who owns his soul. They kept fighting for justice and found the love of their lives in one another despite the odds against them.

I received an ARC from the author for my honest opinion. I appreciate the chance to read her work anytime.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 Dark, Seductive Stars 23 July 2015
By Phe - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Having grown up on the streets of Chicago, Jake Hopper was taken in by the Italian mafia when he was just a young boy, becoming part of the organization and fighting in illegal underground matches. It wasn't until he'd graduated from college and started a respectable position at Steele Construction that he'd asked for, and had been granted, his freedom.

Having started as a humble construction worker while he pursued his degree, Jake had been transferred to Steele's engineering department upon graduation, working his way up to project management. And when the company had run into financial troubles, he'd been instrumental in turning it around, investing his own money and becoming CEO soon after.

When Jake first sees Ella at a black-tie affair, he's struck by her otherworldly beauty. Though she belongs to someone else, he becomes obsessed with her. His need to possess her. To own her. And his obsession soon becomes a deadly affair...

An alluring combination of vulnerability and power with the face of an angel and the body of a siren, Ella Michel is an irresistible creature no man on Earth can resist. Men would die to protect her. And Jake isn't the only man fixated on her. With a sadistic ex-boyfriend intent on keeping her and a serial killer favoring victims who look like her, Ella immerses herself in a dangerous game of cat and mouse, determined to win at any cost.

A seductive mix of mystery, suspense, intrigue, and erotic romance, Deadly Obsession has it all from an over-the-top, jealous, possessive, dirty talking alpha male, to a strong, self-sacrificing heroine. The overall theme was dark and somewhat disturbing, yet the underlying catalyst for said theme was well plotted, making for a suspenseful, riveting read. And though I had mixed feelings about the Hero/heroine at first, as the story progressed, I became more and more connected until I was completely wrapped up in every word.
5.0 out of 5 stars Dark, Sexy, and Suspenseful 28 April 2015
By Smut Book Junkie Book Reviews - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Dark, Sexy, and Suspenseful..

Victoria Paige is an extremely talented author. She has become a one-click author for me. If she releases a book I will purchase it without hesitation. Deadly Obsession is a masterfully written suspenseful and dark thriller. This book had me on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen next.

Deadly Obsession starts out with a lot of sex in the very beginning you begin to wonder if Jake is just a sex crazed power-hungry millionaire and if this is just going to be another one of those stories...I can tell you it's not like any other story I have read. Jake is originally attracted to Ella's beauty and Ella is attracted to Jake' rough exterior. She craves normalcy in her sexual encounters. Jake gives her what she needs without pain and she becomes just as addicted to him as he is to her.

This story is very dark. Ella is trained to be a sadist and is sent undercover by the FBI into a very dangerous situation where she seduces a man who has some very dark tastes when it comes to sex. Samuel Clayton is twisted and sick. You end up hating him so much that you cheer when Jake gets his hands on him. There is no rape involved in this story. I don't think I could handle that but there is a lot of pain and twisted sexual scenarios. To top things off there is a serial killer on the lose that is obsessed with Ella because she is the only woman who Samuel would not share with him. The killer is a level 4 sadist and Samuel would share his women with this man and would not ask questions when they turned up missing as he himself feared him. The question is who is this mystery man Samuel calls him and can the FBI find him before he finds Ella.

Get ready for a twisted and dark thriller that you soon will not forget.

You need to one-click this one while it is only $.99 cents. It is more than worth it.
4.0 out of 5 stars Hooked within the first chapter 21 April 2015

***ARC provided in exchange for an honest review - Naomi / Scandalous Book Blog***

This Book was a fantastic mix of everything, we get an Erotic Thriller and A Love Story with enough suspense to have us on the edge of our seats and cursing at our kindles.

This book gripped me within the first paragraph, Jake just had to have Ella and Ella wasn’t complaining (maybe just a little moaning). With hot sessions at the gym he becomes obsessed, but Ella belongs to Samuel…the same man that had an affair with Jakes wife and caused his already failing marriage to end in a divorce.

Jake has a past and not a great one, he is connected to the mob and used to be an underground fighter but he has turned his life around and is now a CEO of a well established business. When he first took Ella it was more out of revenge against Samuel but he quickly becomes obsessed with her and this dirty, dominant alpha try’s to force her hand but is shocked by what Ella reveals, she needs certain things in a relationship and Jake realizes he cant give her them and sends her away.

Ella is in a relationship with Samuel but not all is as it seems, she has secrets that she can’t tell until the time is right. Ella has become someone that she had to be to get the answers she requires but this relationship with Jake was never supposed to happen and she is treading a very dangerous line between life and death.

Then one night it all changes for the both of them, Ella knows she will never get the answers she wanted whilst worrying that she will be forever looking over he shoulder but doesn’t know who it is she is running from AND Jake is in pieces, what has happened to Ella, can he help her, can he be everything she needs or can he change her desires.

This book jumps straight in but you will never be disappointed there is always another twist at the turn of a page, always a little more suspense that will have you holding your breath, always another hot sex scene that will have u clench your thighs and always another outburst from Jake that will make you swoon a little more.
