4.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 Dark, Seductive Stars 23 July 2015
By Phe - Published on Amazon.com
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.

Spoiler Ahead This was a pretty good book. Jake is obsessed with Ella the first time he see's her but she is with another man, a man she has no intention of leaving. Jake's obsession with Ella Michel makes him a very jealous man everyman wants her and this puts Jake into a rage. 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. 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. This was a pretty good book the sex scenes where hot. This book was well written with no errors in grammar or spelling. This was my first time reading this author and not my last.
5.0 out of 5 stars Obsession they are powerless to resist… 21 April 2015
By ZR1000 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Jake Hopper, CEO of a steel company, is obsessed with a beautiful woman at his country club. The sexual tension between them is palpable. They eye each other hungrily across the room and are affected by each other’s presence to the exclusion of all else in the environment. He is so obsessed that he starts an affair with this woman who belongs to another man, the man his ex-wife cheated on him with. Was it revenge in his thoughts that drove him? Perhaps but his obsession with the woman increases with every encounter and jealousy that he’s never known eats at him forcing him to give her an ultimatum that makes her disappear for a week and has him stalking her home.

Ella Michel is a woman with serious secrets who is playing a dangerous game. Getting involved with the handsome CEO was never part of the plan. But there is something about this man that calls to her sexually on a primal level, something she never expected to find considering what she has transformed herself into and makes her want something she can never have. She cannot control this alpha of a man and when she shows him what she truly needs at his request he callously sends her away, confirmation to her that there is no hope.

And then all hell breaks loose as the reader begins a rollercoaster ride of action and suspense.

To say that Jake is a very forceful alpha is an understatement, his obsession and jealously border on stalker but it works for this character. He’s also protective and caring of what he considers his own and doesn’t go against his principles which are not saintly to begin with but he has his own code. There is much depth to this man who has his own secrets from the past, secrets that he’ll reactivate to get what he wants, Ella in his life and to keep her safe and anyone who stands in his way he’ll likely eliminate.

When I think of Ella, the Siren of Greek mythology comes to mind for she’s depicted as the temptress of men. She is quite a contradiction though, what we first see is a femme fatale, a black widow in nature yet when we meet the woman behind the façade and learn the lengths that she has gone to for family it breaks your heart. She’s a strong woman but the players in the game are deadly and she’s really out of her league but that doesn’t stop her from striving to attain her goal with or without Jake’s help when he learns the truth. He may want to protect her but that doesn’t stop her from challenging him.

The dual points of view gave us great insight into both of the protagonists. Their romance that began as a lust-filled attraction was sexy and also sweet. I enjoyed seeing them learn about each other and liking what they found. They denied their feelings for a long time but there was no doubt they were in love.

Cheating is something that I dislike in romances because it means someone gets hurt but things are not always as they seem. I was allowed a preview of the first few chapters and was satisfied that it wouldn’t be a problem plus I was thoroughly intrigued and needed to know what would happen next.

I loved this! This is dark romantic suspense with twists and turns that had my head spinning and kept me turning the pages. The characters were so compelling and I became invested in their outcome early on. There were many interwoven threads that had me guessing and not always correctly. The ending was lovely, perfect for these two who never lost their obsession with each other.

Do heed the warning if you are sensitive to such things as deviant behavior though I did not find them overly graphically described. Obsession is the theme throughout the book, it will either cause a person to crash and burn or sometimes in obsession redemption, love, and a future can be found.

5.0 out of 5 stars You want everything? This book has everything. 20 April 2015

Victoria Paige is truly the author of smut for smart girls. I already consider myself pretty smart, but I had to look up 10 words while reading this book. I love words, and want to personally thank the author for expanding my vocabulary (and for Kindle Paperwhite for adding the Vocabulary Builder function).

So. You can get smarter reading this book. You can also enjoy a tale that includes an alphahole (I also love made-up words), a dirty-talker (YES!) and so much intense suspense, you'll be clutching your chest!

There are few books that affect me the way this one did. It's a bit of a departure from the author's usual work, and I'm loving this turn. It's darker and the title, Deadly Obsession, only begins to describe the book. The synopsis tells so little about this book, and that's a good thing. I guessed one surprise in the first fifth of the book, but everything after that was one thrilling surprise after another. By the end, I was smiling so hard, my cheeks hurt and I was hugging my Kindle. The biggest surprise was that I wanted to start all over and read it again immediately. The only other books I've felt that way about were the three Fifty Shades books.

This book will definitely be read repeatedly. I already know this. The next time, it will be as a read-aloud to my husband. In fact, we're going to read the whole Victoria Paige library together.

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review, but I also bought the book, because I believe in helping to support one of my top-three favorite authors financially. READ THIS BOOK.
_______________

Read again January 2016 aloud to hubby:

It is still a favorite and I loved it just as much reading it aloud. This was hubby's favorite book from Victoria Paige's library (so far...a little bird told me she is writing again!), and I think it's my favorite, too. We have finished our journey through these delicious books. I know I'll be back through again myself someday. Each one lends itself to multiple readings. Happy reading!
5.0 out of 5 stars Jake is HOT!! 15 April 2015

I am very lucky to have an in with the author of Deadly Obsession and she supplies me with my drug of choice…Hot Alpha Males!! Thanks Ms Paige for the ARC and the opportunity to read and review.

Jake is an ex-fighter who works hard to get past his rough start to life and becomes CEO of a company that deals in construction. He has led a busy life making work his priority. Unfortunately this included marrying a woman (stupid cow) who would improve his business. She’s an idiot who loses him, but he is nice enough to let her keep her job. Ella is recovering from tragic loss and finds escape in a dangerous way. She is a very beautiful woman who men can’t help falling for. Jake and Ella meet up and have an instant physical attraction to each other. Unfortunately she is in a relationship already.

This story scraped along the edge of my comfort zone. Relationships that start in this way normally get my back up. In this case I was able to get past it. Ms Paige has a talent for explaining the motivations of the characters to make the situation come through clearer and harder to form judgements.

Jake is a foul mouthed, sexy hunk of a man who knows what he wants…and it’s Ella. This journey for the couple is not easy. There are many obstacles in the way of their happiness, but fortunately they both want it enough to work for it. They had to learn to live with each other and their possessive quirks, but they also had some issues in the bedroom. Boy did I like to see them work through those problems. Ms Paige has written some of the hottest sex scenes I have ever read.

There is some violence throughout the story and there is one scene towards the end that surprised me a little, but I was able to get past it.

Overall I really enjoyed this story and I feel that Ms Paige’s style and talent improves with each release. It is different from her usual fare, but definitely as good if not better.

Thank you Ms Paige for being a wonderful friend and helping me feed my addiction.
